Player Comments

This storygame was a little too short to really get any enjoyment out of. I'm surprised that the site's algorithm gave it a 4/8 length. Maybe the bibliography made it feel shorter than the actual number of words.

While this work is befitting of the edutainment category, it also feels a little lacking in detail, largely because of the short length. Perhaps more facts would have benefitted this. Also, it's not made clear which choice was the most historically accurate, which would have made sense for something like this based on real events.

Considering that this is written in second person and makes you choose events as King Charles II, there's not too much sense of you actually being him. Things like dialogue and more detail explaining the potential consequences of your choices might have helped with this. I understand that this was a school project, so perhaps that wasn't your aim, but it would have made this a more interesting read.

Neat game. It seems you've done your research and know what you are talking about. I liked the pictures and writing as well. I think this could be fleshed out a tad bit to allow multiple branches, and more alternate history than you've already done. It's alright in its current form though.

I loved the idea of this game, but the choices seemed to have no real consequences. You win or lose the favor of your people what? Way too short. If this were fleshed out more, I'd rate much higher than a 3. Nice grammar, sentence structure, readability and an interesting, little-studied time period.

Excellent work, excellent research and good writing. I would say it could have been longer but hopefully you got very high marks for this project :)

Personnally I love history, and this had good information. Sadly, it didn't have much of anything, even though there was great information, there wasn't that much of it.
Perhaps you should expand on it a bit more before showing it to your teacher?
Lastly, shouldn't this be in Edutainment?

Not too bad, but a little short

Dear Isabella. The concept is great - especially for a history buff like myself - and the writing is also good. But please expand the story and give us more of the 'feeling' that we are in London in 1666. Let us play!
