Could be better if more polished
Interesting concept, although a little confusing. Some of choices has no effect on the story (i.e. I chose to stay on the ship, but on the next page I am on the planet), but this seemed more like a bug than poor writing. It was relatively short and there seemed to be many opportunities for choices that are instead just text (like it telling me I chose to become a farmer). Some paths might have been due to the choices I had made, but it wasn't clear from the writing.
I often play Choice of Games but lately I've been playing Hosted Games like Zombie Exodus. I have no problem supporting the little guy and in fact prefer it. But I find myself agreeing with other negative reviews. I played the game through once and this was all true:
1) lack of meaningful decisions. I pursued investigating the possible crime the entire time. Not only did I not find anything, the game basically told me I wasted my time.
2) poor editing. It was well written most of the time, but lots of spaces before punctuation. Also there were a lot of really strange thoughts, like "Enough about that" and "Spaceships aren't your friend."
3) nothing happens. I basically fade into obscurity at the end. Sorry for ruining the ending.
4) meaningless stats. I got my enlightened up to 80%, and then after five years passes everything is down to 35% or less. HOW? I didn't make any decisions, mostly just hit "next" and read this short novel.
So yeah, it was really long and tried to be in depth, but it was basically an interactive fiction. If there were other endings it must have been through a few very discreet options. I found no relationships with any other characters and felt like I died alone. Ah well.
I seldom buy a game before the reviews are out. This game confirmed that habit.
The setting is bland and cliche, you have no choice of what character you would like to play, and there are no interesting or innovative ideas that I noticed. The writing is entirely forgettable and beige. Worst of all, NOTHING HAPPENS. The game has you make choices, but no choices have a predictable or meaningful impact on the story. I would definitely recommend skipping this one.
