One of the best text based games. Love the game but it is a shame that you can't save some people
Awesome!!! Let's just start off with I would really love for the next one to come out soon, I felt sad when some of the characters died like the game was so realistic. I beat the game 4 times with different ending without paying for the game so yeah that's a lot if money for each section glad I didn't have to pay for it..
Lovin it I love it. Able to make your own character and choose how they live life with emma and heather a devilin. I love the game and recommend it to anyone who think's it's lame.
FREEMIUM DATA MINER You have to pay for the full game, $1.99 each for the last three chapters. But it doesn't tell you THAT at first. Also, the app needs access to your location, and asks for your email address to "save" the game to go back in case you mess up in the next chapter, only to inform you that you need to pay for the additional chapter AFTER you register your email with a mysterious company that will probably send your email to every marketing company on planet Earth. Enjoy your full inbox and thanks for playing!
Ok. Let me just say that this game is AWESOME. It really is. Non-linear, with 9 completely different endings (!!!). It's well written, interesting, offers variety of choices, including moral choices (some of them very difficult). It sucked me in straight away. Then why did I give it only 3 stars? Because it asks you to buy the three last chapters. It draws you in for the first two, and really leaves you with no option but to spend money to continue. And it doesn't even remove the ads, you've got to pay more to get rid of those. I'm not complaining about the price, I'm complaining about the lack of transparency. There is no info about the payments in the description. There should be a demo and the full version available for purchase - to make it clear that you will have to pay more if you wish to continue playing. If the description changes I'll change this review to 5 stars but at the moment...
Brilliant! Extremely well done, a compelling adventure I'd highly recommend to anyone who enjoys text based games. My only suggestions are to make more like this and to make an option to purchase the full game at once. Ads are irritating but nothing to do with writer. Also, the people who complain that you must pay for additional chapters are foolish, and the reason good things like this often die. By far the best at what he does. It is not 'freemium.' The person saying that is an idiot.

In the Empire of the Petal Throne, will you find glory, or a knife in your back?
A philosophical lunar romance with game designers. What defines a "good" ending?
