Ratings and Reviews
I can’t remember a time I read a story this quickly. It’s such an interesting world they’ve created and the characters are all so interesting. In the beginning it felt a little more like you could steer the story yourself but as things progressed I felt more like the character’s bitterness kind of overwhelmed your ability to choose. So my choices looked out of place with the story. Maybe that’s because of the answers I chose earlier on, I don’t know, but playing a full on villain while not getting the full picture about what happened to make your character want to destroy their former friends/allies broke some of my immersion. If I’m gonna be that vengeful to some seemingly decent folks, I kind of want more of a complete picture. Maybe I’d have learned more about the incident from their past with different choices. Also RO wise, for a player choosing to date guys but not wanting to have a romantic relationship with Ortega, the interactions got a little frustrating. Kind of felt like he was the only real option and he was constantly thrown at you.
Regardless of the things I didn’t love, I really adore Fallen Hero and will replay it. Also excited for the next book!!
Good writing but unsatisfying motivation
The good: You’re playing a character who is struggling emotionally. I would say that she had a mild personality disorder (inability to trust other people) which was exacerbated by PTSD. Your choices and the writing manage to force you to stay within the constraints of your mental illness, while still allowing you some leeway about how to react in particular situations. Because of the skillful writing, you can feel some of her emotions, like you would in a good novel. More generally, the author really does know how to write well. Setting the scene and dialogue/banter are novel-quality, which is not the case in many CoG/Hosted Games.
The bad: A lot of information crucial to your character is revealed piecemeal throughout the story. I think some of it still hasn’t been revealed. This includes her history (events that made her the way she is), her goals, and the practical plans to accomplish them. Since your character would know all of these things, it left me feeling unable to fully absorb myself in her. I could feel her emotions like she was a whole person, but when I tried to think like her, she was a cardboard cutout.
My favorite one so far!
I must say that as of fan of the products you’ve produced this one might well be my all time favorite. I greatly enjoyed the mechanic of having control of two characters and potentially having two different personalities between the two. Plus I feel this game gives me an experience that isn’t all that touched on too well. The ability to be the villain! I’ve played the academy for upcoming super villains and I enjoyed it my first time through. But ultimately it felt lacking in motivation. I entered the school because my mother was a villain? Here my character suffered a traumatic experience that caused serious mental and physical injuries. Also your choice of what villain you will be is a fine touch as well. And with how the ending appeared for me, I’m looking forward to a potential sequel.
