So I actually liked the combination of story elements and game play...but was the game supposed to freeze after the last wolf? Also, I understand if English isn't your first language but find a proofreader...please. If your game is going to be that text heavy, something that become's the player's sole focus at times, then it needs to be well written. I almost didn't play because I figured if the writing quality was that poor then the game would be, too.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
In what instance were you fighting wolves? I made endings for every circumstance, even cases where it would be impossible to win.

English is my first language though I'm not an expert in it. If you have any writing suggestions, please offer them.

hey i found a glitch. i decided to kill the leader at the start and then on my 2nd turn fighting cultists i tried using an item but since i didn't have one the game kinda soft-locked.

hislittlecuzin responds:

You can press escape to back out of the item menu.

-The game freezes after fighting off the wolves during an ambush. Also the wolves do not attack at all during battle (bug or not implemented?) (choice made to reach this point: -spared old man, investigated, pick up sword, rode off on his horse, get off horse in woods, hide in cave.

While I tend to enjoy games that offer multiple story lines, the game kind of forces you to pick a particular path if you want to live. Might be better to offer players a chance to make a different choice instead of going back to the beginning all the time.

hislittlecuzin responds:

Thank you very much for playing!!!
I didn't expect anyone to even look at this.
The original version of this game was made in a 48 hour game jam, I just remade it in RPG Maker. I've considered giving many optional routes to allow the player to do anything they so choose. I might update this or release a new version with more paths if it proves interest. Otherwise, I might move onto other projects likely to be uploaded here since somehow I got 102 views for an RPG Maker game.

Looking at the code from my end, after you hide, you're supposed to die and get a game over.

To help mitigate the starting over, I suggest saving as your own checkpoint, then at the main menu, press continue to start at your "checkpoint." It's been working for me in standalone and in engine, though I don't know if saving is available on this web version. I haven't used this site beyond upload this game and watching 1 video. If I find any way to upload the standalone I will. Otherwise my personal itch account has this listed if you google it.
