I felt that when I made the right choices, the author forced me to do the wrong thing (like the cage, for example). It defeats the whole point of playing. It was a good idea, but the writer should have developed it further and not been so manipulative.

Very nice!
I'm a sucker for Slavic folktales, I'll say that much--and while I would have liked a few more nods to the stylistic details of Russian fairytales, it's still very nice to see them represented here. And you did a good job of it, so all's well!

VERY WELL DONE. yes it requires you to follow the path of the story, but I felt like I was in control of the outcome from the beginning non-the-less. Well put together, perfect for edutainment category. Congrats!

It had exciting characters and an exciting story.
Everything was good.
But maybe it could be longer.

Well, this story was very interesting and it was good, for some people that may like this kind of genre of book/story. Its not really my type of thing, but it seems good for a real person that likes those kind of things in their favorite type of stories. Very nice sequence though.

I like to believe that the Wolf Princess's name is Avery. I think in some cases there should be a choice to fight

I think it was good but it ended a little too quickly for my joy

Is this a Russian myth?
