The peasants of Nottingham bow under the weight of Prince John’s taxes; nobles fall to the Sheriff’s political machinations; deserters from the Crusades pillage the land; and fairies lure the unwary into the depths of mist-shrouded Sherwood Forest, never to be seen again. Step into the chaos of a magical England at the end of the Third Crusade. Maid Marian hides breathless amidst the brambles after the sack of her father’s castle; Little John charges a bodyweight in gold to cross a lonely log; and Will Scarlet holds court in a brokedown tower surrounded by trees as tall as the sky, waiting for a king who will never come. The time is ripe, a spark is lit – from the ashes of your home, from the shadow of anonymity, step into legend. You are Robin Hood.

Nocked! is a lushly-illustrated, text-driven role-playing game playable for minutes or hours at a time. Define the deeds and identity of Robin Hood, outlaw of Sherwood Forest; recruit allies, forge alliances, find love; and chart a path between war, negotiation, and dangerous magics. Your choices are remembered and your actions shape the world, but you can’t do it alone.

Story and strategy collide as your reputation spreads and Merry Men join your band: Build and expand a base in the hidden deeps, manage your earnings from raids on tax collectors, and prepare for the coming of the Sheriff of Nottingham. There is no sure and easy path to victory, no one decision that will save your resistance; will you fall beneath the Sheriff’s boot heel, or will you build a movement to last the ages? The choice is yours.

Choose-Your-Own Adventure with Real Replay Value!


This game is so fun, I'm playing it when I should be doing other things! But it's an auto-save system, so you can just as easily open it up in line at the DMV or on the train to work. Only a few hours in, and I know I'll be playing through it again: what would happen if I had jumped out the window instead of sneaking out in that costume?

Edit for v.1.5: The designer has been very attentive to feedback and diligent in rooting out bugs. How many permutations of endings can one game have‽

Complex and addictive choose your own adventure game!


Nocked! has good storylines and adventure and is pretty addictive. The complexity and thoughtfulness of the huge amount of choices is exciting. I’ve yet to figure out how to “win;” i’ve only been mildly effective at moving the story to my benefit. I’d love to have in game save points so i could try all the branching decisions to see all the twists and turns. The art is terrific. Highly recommend!

Charming and replayable adventure


This is a well-written and charming choose-your-own adventure with immense replayability, as you’re always left wondering what would have happened with the other choices. Technically a bit clunky at times, and it takes a while for new devices to be properly supported, but this is forgivable for an indie game.
