Well the story really sells itself there with the intro page. I’m not really sure what’s with the self-depreciating as a description of the story. If the story is so bad, why did you even publish it? I mean sure, I could go outside and do some fun stuff, but I came here because I wanted to read a nice story. The setup here assures me that this isn’t going to be a good story, so I’d suggest you unpublish it, make it a good story, adjust the description, and then go ahead and publish a nice story.

It’s not a bad story, especially with the intro and descriptions. Sure, there could be more in the descriptions, but there’s enough to get you into the story. It wouldn’t hurt to use actual pictures for the items instead of the default bags, though. There is a slight issue with the items and the griffin: if you don’t pick up the items when you get to the page with the griffin, you can’t do anything. This leaves you at a dead end with no way out of the story. I’d suggest a link here to get you out in case you didn’t pick up the items, or simply put the items in the reader’s inventory via scripting so they at least start with the items.

I’m not sure I really understood what happened at the end. I mean, what was that about EA and developers for the game? Was this supposed to be an EA game? Was it a parody of an EA game? Is the author trying to write an EA game but doesn’t have the developer kit or something? I really don’t know, but it seemed quite odd and out of place.

Overall, this was a nice start at a story. I’m not sure about all the items, and there really didn’t seem to be any real options in the story – there appeared to be just one way through the story and any other option was just failure. It could be developed quite a bit more with more options, more descriptions, and even more bounties. Maybe the user could select their own bounty from a list of three at the start or something like that.

I'm not sure if this is a really long troll story of a weird effort at satire. It begins well but during the griffin fight you expect us to use our weapons in a totally random order and the ending is a bizarre attack on a computer games company that I guess have wronged you in some way in the past. If you want to make it a satirical attack on that company you need to make it a bit more obvious... the humour was ok and the pictures were a plus :)

Good news: This game is exactly what it says on the tin. Grammar and spelling is decent (harder to find than one would think), and the prose doesn't stray too far away from the topic. That being said, this game doesn't have much of a plot at all, and there could be (a lot) more world-building and gaming mechanics involved. Keep working at it, and you'll have a nice game that people won't mind playing, even if the adventure is "not so great".

I liked using the different items based on the attack of the griffin. Otherwise it was a little short, and the EA thing didn't make a lot of sense, but they deserve the hate with their pay to win stuff.

That was enjoyable enough, although rather linear. It sounded as if you ran out of ideas near the end, but more choices would help to make this even better.

Huh? That ended suddenly. I didn't really get it, but I suppose it wasn't that bad.

Decent writing, but I found it a bit boring since there is only one ending.
