Ok. I accept that maybe I am not bright enough to understand the logic behind this story-game but it was incomprehensible on so many levels. You have used the story of the famous Jules Verne book (which in the original text I have found unreadable) and used it to pose a series of ethical questions which have basically nothing to do with the realistic experiences of travelling through these countries.
When at any stage of a tourist's journey through India would we be required to know which stage of the demographical model it is on? How on earth is your average person expected to know how the Grameen Foundation has helped empower women in India? As someone who has worked in Asia with people from North Korea I can tell you the dilemma of whether you travel official or secretively in the country doesn't arrive at all: you either travel with a tourist company escorted by government officials or you don't travel at all.
I'm afraid I do not understand this at all; if you reposted this as a humanities quiz perhaps it would be in the correct genre. I am not sure that you have ever been to any of the places you are writing about. You used the Advanced Editor and your spelling and grammar was good (except the links were too long so we could not read the full and lengthy moral dilemmas proposed by travelling) but I did not understand what sort of story this was at all :(

In essence, I feel that this was a trivia quiz with a storyline to it.
I enjoyed that there was a story to it at all, but it was relatively basic, with not much plot or character development. Still, it kept me interested, so kudos to you!
As for the trivia, some of the text is not displayed well, and it is hard to guess with a lack of background information. The fact that it is not just questions, but also moral choices that affect your resources was intriguing. I wish I could have seen more of that.
Thank goodness you paid attention to grammar and spelling.
I didn't completely finish the game (I got murdered as part of the hostiles) so perhaps my comment isn't entirely accurate, but overall, I would love to see more work and I definitely think you show promise.

Really entertaining and educational.

It had promise, but you need to work on the formatting:
Don't use the full answer as the links, because the very first question (poverty/crime links in Afghanistan) doesnt display the text correctly, which shows somewhat of a lack of proofreading.

Also - why have scales from 0-20 or 0-10 when you "instant lose" if you drop below 8/4? Doesn't make much sense.

This was good.

Beyond the badly formatted answers, absolute no context on why any of the questions were being asked, and least of all no hint at where the relevant information could be found, this one's a disappointment. There's no story here, just a sequence of consecutive interrogations about matters which are important, but you'll lose patience far before you reach the end (which I christmastreed around Korea till the end... just to be able to leave this comment)

Pretty bad and I don't get how I am to know some of this stuff.

Interesting.

I like the game, but some of those questions weren't really easy to answer, like the questions about the stages.

6/8
