Terra Proxima, an Epic Choose Your Own Adventure Serial by Rommel

Episode 2: The Lines are Drawn

Here it is! See the world through Sentinel's eyes as you fight the Taktat Empire's invasion to a standstill, and realise that this is just the beginning of what is to come...

Includes the epilogue, Terra Proxima: Hostile Contact, which is rather lengthly and non-branching, but I think it provides good closure.

I have not playtested this - I figure it's better to release now and fix it up later.

Masterful work. The preview I had built up high expectations for me, but you still managed to blow them out of the water. This episode takes what made the original great and expands on it in spades. Every time I thought the episode was ready to wind down, another high caliber battle sparked. Then there is the incredibly lengthy epilogue. Each encounter tests judgment and resource management skills. Every item and event has a purpose. Nothing is wasted. This tight decision making integrated with a war story that has excellent backstory and character development in this episode, page after page after page, makes for an experience worthy of the highest praise. I cannot imagine a worthier addition to the series, but you have a better imagination than I do.

Read this is 2020 gives perspective, in how the standards have been raised. For today standards this game is bad. It doesn't track anything don't use any command and has literally, jolting down HUNDREDS OF OBJECTS, MEN PROFESSIONS AND COMBATS.

It doesn't track anything, you can say you are a medical and next choice an engineer inside power armour. It feels that nothing matters and a horrible chore that ended up after only two choices launching the notes and just picking whatever.

It has a lot of work in maps colours and fonts and lots of bullshit that doesn't mean anything when the actual writing is bland and with no immersion more focused on 1000 objects, than increasing the appeal and depth of npcs or the plot itself.

A cool story. I like sci-fi military stories/games. Right on to the creator. I'd like to see a third installment.

... My God, this game is enormous, and I was actively trying to die the entire time. It... didn't really work. I'm really impressed, it's obvious you put an insane amount of work into this. Bravo.

to long pages and the choices required nothing but clicking and not needing the items
