Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 16. If this were a movie, it would probably between PG-13 and R.

Blue versus red in a classic battle of good versus evil and right versus wrong.

This is more story than game and a lot more story than anything I've written previously.

There is one true ending (marked by a stirring legend), one other really good ending and there are at least two other legitimate endings. All legitimate endings include epilogues.

This game was awesome! I can't imagine how long you spent making it but I am extremely impressed. There were a few flaws like the maze being kind of buggy. There were some places where you could go forward but not back. Got to say, I don't think I've ever seen so many cliches piled into a story before. The young boy who's left orphaned because his parents were killed and his village destroyed. Then there's the generic female character who never really does anything useful and is just there to be the main character's love interest. And of course your character's the stereotypical "chosen one" who's destined to save the world from the day he's born. That said, I kind of liked the cliches in this story. They were well written so that you actually believed them and cared about what the character was going through. Also certain things about the way the story was written give me the impression that it was written by quite a young person, but not in a bad way. More in a way that you just know the writer's going to get better and better as he gets older. Great game, great story, lots and lots of praise. ^_^

This was so worth doing. This is definitely one of my favorite storygames on the site thus far. My only complaint was the maze; I lost points there because I ended up skipping. To me it would have helped a lot if there were maybe landmarks to help. I did try mapping the cave, obviously I messed up on that. If you do another maze it would be awesome if you include descriptions of little things that might help. "North. You pass a pool of stagnant water" or just something like that. Just a suggestion. I know you said you regretted it on the disclaimer but I don't think a maze is a bad idea (I played Golden Oldies: Adventure & I appreciate a good maze), it can just be upgraded from a simple series of turns. Other than that I loved it. I played from a near end point to get different endings & they were all good.

Absolutely incredible. This story was unbelievably intense and exciting - I wholeheartedly recommend this story to anyone interested in fantasy and adventure.

The story is written in such a way that the reader actually has to work for the advancement of the protagonist. The characters are interesting and dynamic. There are elements of romance and action. Flawlessly executed.

He should've gone and declared war on the gods for being so egoistic

Wow, that was... well one big surprise on top of another. And I loved it! Didn't expect a thing like that to exist! (But please... the maze.... could be done without ;-) )
