I really liked this.

It's always been a love of mine when books have maps that you can trace the actual journey on. I think if I were to add anything it would be a couple of different routes with different encounters on them, which I appreciate is a lot more work than that makes it sound like!

A good sense of place and world, a well paced and engaging writing style, all really good stuff!

Cheers :) originally I had 2 routes but I hit a point in the weekend where I decided to sacrifice variety of choice for strength of narrative. hopefully I'll have time to get back to it at some point to make it a bit more complex :)

Really liked the setting and atmosphere of this! Even with a mostly linear story, the choices added a lot in terms of making me feel immersed as the character, and the writing does a great job of dropping small but effective hints about the world.

Developer

Thanks :) I really need to add to the story, I think I was slightly too optimistic with how much I could do in a weekend but I'd really like to make a bit more variation  in the story later on.

Nice story. Are there different endings ?
(btw thank you for making me discover Hex kit, it looks pretty cool)

Developer

Thanks - there aren't, there's a lot of variation in the middle but the ending doesn't change depending on your choices.

I played Piggy Bank too by the way, really enjoyed it :) really like how the ending brought it all together.
