Ratings and Reviews
Really cool game!
I’m a big fan of choose-your-own-adventure text games and this one is very good. I love the voice actress playing Frances, she’s fantastic.
The pros of this game are originality and believability, but most of all the ability to skip puzzles if you’re stuck. The cons, that the dialogue for the playable character usually comes across as mean and not overly sympathetic. Frances is in a pickle and sometimes she has to make hard choices, but I don’t want to be cruel about it.
Another small con is that sometimes while Frances is doing something and you’re still engaged it takes slightly too long. Without giving anything away, she should have signed out a little earlier while she was moving things instead of having me hang around and then leaving anyway. I don’t mind waiting while she’s asleep/busy and disconnected, only while I’m still active.
I’ll definitely recommend this game to my friends. I get the developers had to get us hooked but the ending was way too abrupt. Looking forward to the second chapter being released soon!
Developer Response ,
Thank you Irene, for your extensive feedback! That helps a lot to push TGWSTW in the right direction and improve upcoming episodes ☻
This game is definitely interesting and fun. The story is so unique, original, and mysterious. It’s an episodic game, where only episode 1 is out right now, so the mystery is still totally unsolved. I love discovering and finding things along with Frances. Her voice actor is also phenomenal.
I love how Frances contacts you when she needs to, instead of you having to check in or wait all the time. However, when we have to wait with the app open for her to finish things, I hope that either the actions can finish quicker, or she can entertain us with little stories/side talk instead of just silence and wind.
I would also hope for more choices and interactions between Frances and I. The choices could also be made clearer. I only see 1 or 2 sentences of what will be said, but then the player in game says like a whole paragraph that includes ideas that I didn’t bargain for which causes Frances to act in ways I didn’t expect.
If you’re reading this review considering whether to buy, I would say definitely give it a chance. Despite the stuff I said could be improved above, I thought the game was spectacularly entertaining and totally one of a kind.
Great for what it is
If you’re looking for a mindless game that you can just pick up whenever and waste time on, this isn’t for you. The game decides when you can play it, which adds to the realism. And I think that’s what the developers were trying to achieve. It has a very professional feel. The actress did a wonderful job, the background sounds are perfect, and the story is intriguing. The puzzles were very challenging, but can be skipped. The only downside was the story is too linear. Would love to have more interactions, and branches based off of choices. I’m guessing that’s the plan for future chapters... Hopefully they get around to making more. I want to know what is going on!!!
