Gaius, now a God, attempts to avenge his mother's death from his own father, Zeus. What he didn't realized is that making war with the lord of the Gods is not as easy as one would expect. Can he take on all of them on his own? Find out in the second installment of Overthrown!

So, same drill, this storygame is more of a story than a game, so please rate as a story instead of a game. And, just for your information, I'm still trying to get used to the editor and this story writing process, so please bear with me. All comments are appreciated, especially the negative ones so I can make a better Part 3, which as of right now will probably have the conclusion. . .

Something new about the part 2 are hidden battles. In the first part your choices don't matter that much which made the story very linear. In the part 2, I tried to make the story a little bit wider in terms of range by having different kinds of battles between your choices. BEWARE some choices you make can lead to awesome battles which also mean some choices you make can lead to no awesome battles... the point is you should try going back and choosing every option to see all the incredible battles I've stored for you.

Wow. This may be as good if not better than the first. The action was always intense and written well, and I could literally imagine the battles taking place, thanks to the strong imagery provided by the impressive writing.

I would love to see a third game in this series, because both storygames tell me that there's just so much that can be done with this setting. ^^

fun!

[WARNING: SPOILER]
Though the story may be engaging, but I would also like to point out in one particular part of the story- you stressed about how tough and dangerous an opponent Ophiotaurus can be, and how seemingly impossible it is to locate him. I was actually quite looking forward to seeing how Gaius and his band of new friends will find and fight him. However, Ophiotaurus proved be much less challenging than you claimed to be. I was actually quite disappointed with how easily they dealt with him, and all my hopes for another intense-filled battle were dashed.

My suggestion is- try to avoid emphasizing on things that may not be the main focus of the story. It may become misleading and this will only cause your readers to become disappointed in the end.

Overall, though, good job! Keep up the great work! I will be looking forward to seeing part 3! I gave

I am impressed! This story is filled with so much intense and anxiety that I could not take my eyes off the screen. You left me almost close to tears when I realised that you actually left a cliff hanger! I hadn't expected that it would end so abruptly when things were starting to get heated up!

One thing that was commendable about this story would be the way you describe the battle scenes. They were AMAZINGLY good. You had intricately highlighted every single detail and I was able to picture out everything without much of a trouble. That’s what every hardcore fan of fantasy like me looks for in a writer, and you have done a splendid job!
I also like the idea that you gave us a more variety of choices during the battles. I went through every single possible option and I really enjoyed it! Though it may still be somewhat linear (since it is more of a story than a game), I still had

The ending threw me off. Will there be another one?

Should've kept the scythe then maybe he would've had it easier and he's too narrow minded if he can't kill them then do it the hard way imprison them and have zeus go to Kronos for a reunion maybe they would plan together or just be depressed
