Defend Vollund! You are a new knight who has recently escaped a bandit army and defeated creatures in the Shadowfall Woods. However, there are rumors that they are back. You are in the world of Vollund. The Sequel of the rise of Vollund. By the way, I have a whole novel on this, so, yes critics, I did take time to develop this.




Thanks for playing/reading! (If you do...)

I can see why the rating is 3/8, but I think that's just because people couldn't get past Maze 1.

This storygame can certainly be improved. The game elements were surprisingly good, though the mechanics of how a battle went could've been better.

It actually required a bit of problem-solving and riddle-solving at one point which had confused me for a moment but I understood after reading the hints in the text.

The script-like dialogue style and the lack of description and background was troubling. Again, while the game elements are well done, this storygame lacks good story elements like plot, description, background, etc.

The ending was really weird, as it wasn't a good enough cliffhanger/regular ending for a "part of a series". It ended abruptly, which confused me, not made me want to read further.

Overall, it's an okay game, but bad story.

Okay, first of all, it was better then your first game. However, the faults of the first game are being overlooked. In order for the player to get engaged into the story, s/he needs a character to like, reason to fight, and a goal (other then kill everything you can)
Now for some basic errors:
II saw many instances in which you allow the player to turn back, but it accomplishes nothing, since you can never return more then a page or two back.. Also, make sure you don't force the player into using the "go back" button. It's there for mistakes, but make sure you give an option to return if you didn't bring the key, for instance.
It wasn't horrible, and it is certantly an improvement from the first game, but it gets a 3/8 simply because it wasn't "fun" yet. The game looks promising though!

Welll that was surprising. Lost all my marvelous weapons, unlearn magic, with only a black hammer that can't be used as a weapon and a book of the dead... meh...

The fighting mechanics were kinda fun, but I was restricted from using my sword on a couple of pages. Also the combat is really the only good thing about this game. The story is nothing special really, and it would've been cooler if there were different kinds of things you could fight besides witches.

A good game, but I couldn't find a place to use the hammer, I could only use the book.
