As a direct continuation from the Super Heroic ending of the first game, Adam saved humanity from Pandora's Box and did so without killing Eve. She's at the hospital and Adam constantly waits for her to wake up. Things start to get complicated when a criminal empire finds the Pandora's Box virus and starts to turn it into a biological weapon, and if that wasn't enough, Adam has to face a familiar, "damaged" foe.

Again, this game has powers instead for items and you must select them, the same as you do with items, when the situation calls for it.However, there will be regular items in this game as well, if you find them.

Player Comments

This game is just as good as the first one, except for one minor "glitch" I found. Really interesting and unique gameplay, trying to find the optimal way of completing some of the fights was once again a lot of fun. This game had an improvement to the writing (although it still wasn't perfect), and a lot more character development. This may just be because of the path I took, but I think I used every ability at least once during my playthrough, which is nice because in the last game I didn't use a couple of them whatsoever. The one issue/glitch I found is there's one page during the final fight that leads to a dead end where you can't do anything except go back past a certain point and then use a different ability. I was stuck on that section for a few minutes trying to figure out what to do, and after using every ability in desperation realized I could only go back.

Spoilers: In this game I decided to actually go for the "super heroic" ending after getting to the normal "heroic" ending, and it was definitely harder, but also more satisfying (as it should be). Overall this path was enjoyable, but the final fight with Damage was kind of repetitive. Whereas most of the story and fights are a kind of puzzle where you're trying to figure out the best course of action, this last fight had a lot of scenarios where you're just using strength, even though I actually had ideas on how I could've used the other abilities. While no storygame can have a truly immersive fighting system, the last fight felt especially weird. A weird plot point is that you just kind of become a superhero in the super heroic ending, which fits the whole "super heroic" thing, but also makes no sense. Otherwise I did enjoy this installment a good bit, it was especially great to actually have more interactions with Eve, who didn't get much time in the previous game.

As the second installment in the Homo Perfectus series, I'm happy to say that this was a decent sequel to Homo Perfectus, but I am a bit disappointed in some things about it. I like how more background information was provided and some time passed before the next conflict Adam will have to face. It was much more difficult and I like how more abilities were introduced but I have yet to use all of the abilities in the game.

Unlike Homo Perfectus, the writing is a bit choppy and I feel like it has dropped in quality from the first one. Fighting scenes felt short and uneventful, which also was disappointing. I think that more time and effort should have been put into this because I think that with more attention to specifics, this could even top Homo Perfectus.

The plot was basic and sadly wasn't as structured as I thought it would be. I liked how each scene was introduced though so that was satisfying to read and improved my overall opinion of the storygame. I understand that the advanced editor can be difficult to work with and to understand, so congratulations on successfully using to create storygames like this. The health was a bit broken though, so I was at -5 before I died, rather than at the traditional death mark: 0.

Descriptive writing is still a problem in this (sadly) and I wish that the author would include more because much of it is very repetitive and irrelevant to the situation itself, and as stated before, a storygame like this requires more descriptions than the average story.

Character introductions was improved from Homo Perfectus, so I'm very happy about that. I like how a side story was made for Damage so that his character can be developed and more understood by the readers. Adam has evidently grown a lot and I like how we have the choice to affect this and his actions.

I can't say much about the practicality of your solutions, as this is a superhero story, but the conflicts are generally realistic and are inserted at a good pace that complements the plot line nicely.

I was disappointed that we couldn't use some of the abilities in certain situations, and I could see ways for them to be used so that we can have a good variety of choices and endings for the story.

Spelling and grammar was even worse than in the first one, and I hate to say but the author’s lack of sufficient knowledge of the English language take s a bit away from the story in this one, which isn't a good sign. I think more proofreading is neccessary and shouldn't be done with more caution and care for detail.

This book is the perfect sequel for the perfect game. I love the plotline too.

Include more choices. Needs 1000s of branching paths, even if it takes ten years

I really liked it, although it took a few tries to kill Damage without dying

I really liked Damage. He was a badass. I wish he didn’t die but I accept it. Great writing.

Very good, but sometimes I couldn’t use a action to save me. Why?

Good story, I like how it kept the same mechanics as last time, but there are a few things I noticed that weren't as good as the first.

While neither story had much detail, this has even less and seems to progress too quickly without the details to support it. I also noticed more grammatical errors and misspells than the first. Also, the pictures were a nice addition, except for the fact the Eve had 2 pictures of 2 different people, although it did capture a fitting expression.

Still, no less entertaining than the first and I enjoyed it, I greatly look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Not bad, not bad at all. I'm a huge fan of the series so, when revisiting them, I was stoked to replay this one in particular. The unique take on a superhero storygame gives it a fresh playstyle, allowing the reader more flexibility with their path.
