About this game

Become a village junk collector with high, magic ambitions to rule in Northwest or Northeast Oz. Multiple cases of mistaken identity involve everybody in Oz from the original Frank L. Baum Oz characters to even yourself. You will be thrust into intrigue and suspense at every turn as you try to replace the dead Wicked Witch of the West and Wicked Witch of the East.

"NE By NW Oz" is a 30,000 word interactive novel by Ron Baxley, Jr., where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You may soon discover that some may or may not want you to have any of this roles but to remain as you are.

I played a lot of Gamebooks back in the day, Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, Way of the Tiger, etc.This game reminds me of them. The illustrations are pretty good. Brutal insta-deaths and trials & errors are ok… for those who had completed games like House of Hell, Trial of Champions and Bloodbone, but not for most of today's casual players. They want to choose whatever they want with every option allowing them to wreck havoc, instead of trying to find the only one true path to victory, which explains why those books with superheroes and zombies sell so well. The market is harsh, but please don't be disheartened by that. If House of Hell were released as a brand new Hosted Games title today, it would very likely be bombarded with one-star reviews, especially from those who got stuck in the doomed kitchen.

This game follows the after effects of the original Wizard of Oz. All the different main characters from the original are mentioned and some new characters are brought in with some excellent plot tying the story together. This game is good for multiple playthroughs too, between being good or wicked and going west or east you could get 4 different possible endings. If you like the original Wizard of Oz story this is a creative fan fiction. The price for the game is cheap too.

Very short, very linear, poor grammar and none of your choices matter, it's a very strong railroaded experience ending with you either evil or good with no real emotional weight behind it one way or the other, it's literally do you A) kill this person or B) give them everything they could ever ask for sorts of questions, meaning you have literally no emotional investment, you can't even be evil for a good reason or good for an evil, I do encourage the author to maybe try again with a lot more thought put into this as I can see it's probably a first attempt, however in future please don't railroad and please get an editor to oversee your work, maybe a games tester to see if it does flow well as both a game and story, put more effort into player choices and don't block off their choice, also consider the fact that good and evil are often two sides of the same coin, what is good to the spider is evil to the fly. Keep writing and I hope that my harsh criticisms help you to product a better story next time.
