Nice Story

I really liked the steampunk vibe from this story, as well as the renaissance setting. Although the ending was a bit lackluster for me, everything else was great. The skill system actually mattered, and you really had to think about your actions and plan. Hope to see more from this author in the future.

It was pretty inthralling, I enjoyed it all the way until the end. The end was very dull and I wish to see this game expanded upon.

So many pointless choices...

After buying and loving most CYOA apps, this one was a total dud. The character is involved in SO MANY useless little dialogue choices (choose who to speak to) which have no bearing on the story. You could literally waste hours in pointless minutiae and details while the story drags on in boring overtones, seemingly oblivious to any of your choices. This one is a total waste of time and money.
