Player Comments

This was an interesting sequel to a game that I remember enjoying quite a bit. I found the writing to be serviceable, and there wasn't much that I seen wrong with any of the grammar, if at all actually. I think you did a pretty good job in being expressive with your writing, even if you could say that this was more game than it was story. It was still a fun little time waster in my opinion, so nice work.

I do believe that perhaps there could have been more riddles given to the player, and maybe more challenging ones at that. The riddles in this story-game weren't really that hard, though I do suppose they were riddles that were fun to answer. Although I do think that perhaps there would have been more of a sense of accomplishment on my end if I really had to rake my mind with answering some of the riddles in this.

Still, I did love the humor and overall tone you used for this work. There was simply something quirky and fun that I found about your writing that has helped with my enjoyment of the games in this series of yours. I only wish that there was more here for me to enjoy with this story-game, because it was an interesting read for me.

Cheers for writing something that was quite fun, viking8779.

I am a big fan of riddles (I'm the Riddle Wizard!), so I enjoyed playing this storygame very much. I did have some issues with this, however, and that ruined the experience. Hopefully this can be fixed and updated to make it more enjoyable for future readers.

This wasn't very well researched. I feel like barely any effort was put into this, especially when it came to giving the backstory of the Sphinx and how it came to this situation in which the storygame takes place. In the first page, the history of the Sphinx is very vague and non-descriptive. It could be improved with more research and time put into creating this.

If there were any spelling and grammar mistakes, I must have missed them, so kudos to you! ^~^. Good luck in further storygames, and following my advice will certainly help for a future storygame.

This was an amusing way to spend a few minutes but I have some of the same questions james did. Not sure why the game ends because the player gets a question wrong, wouldn't she just kill that victim and move on?

Ending was sort of weird too, but it may just be a reference to something I'm not getting.


it got obvious pretty quickly that the first option was ALWAYS the correct one, you might consider mixing it up a little next time.

This game was good if a bit short. Although I'm pretty sure you intended to do so, making all the first choices the right ones made it easier. But me being the idiot I am had to use the Go Back button many times.

Fun and interesting, again, I enjoyed all the riddles, but it could be so much better with a deeper story line or something. I love puzzles, but I love stories more and a dash between the two is, I think, a powerful combination. All in all, though, very nice. It was short and sweet just like the first, something I like when I take a break from reading long and grueling stories. I digress, but very nice story and I look forward to reading more.

This game was enjoyable. Why did you put all the correct answers at the top of the list?

Easy riddles... no point... left with a cliffhanger in an attempt to be humorous but only made me wish that's where the story started.

James and mizal both raised the same issues I have with the story. The writing wasn't bad, but the context just seemed kind of odd.
