Meh. Would have to be superbly written and engaging to interest me.

How will you know of you don't read it? Plus, according to the TA review, it's very well written.

So far I'm really enjoying this. It's very simplistic look places more importance on the story and adventure, which is the core mechanic anyway. And along those lines, it is not half bad. The story is alright, but the characters really bring it to life. I've only made it a few chapters in, but I can't wait to keep reading on. I had too much fun deciding on a name and hero moniker, plus the game's options for creating a truly original character add some more fun.

The premise of the story reminds me somewhat of the lame movie Sky High. Not to say that this is a bad story (the cliché: Your parents were famous heroes blah blah). It takes place in a city where 1/3 of people are born with powers. You discover some of your own powers on the way, and can choose how you use them. I don't want to spoiler the story, especially since it revolves around one's choices, so I'll leave it at that.

I'm fairly impressed with this though, and am considering picking up their zombie survival story game.

I stopped reading Reviews when the Industry began to pay for them or demand to put Buzz Words into those (Gamespot/IGN/...) or even asked to let People get fired if they wrote the truth (Gamespot).

Please don`t take it the wrong Way:

I am not jumping on the Buy Train this Time because we have seen many Tin Man Games in the past Months that did showed clearly how a Game Book should be done and this so far looked on the Screenshots more like something I could have coded in HTML5 then something worth the Price.

While I agree the Choice of Games interface is nowhere near the Tin Man games they are really solid adventures who center more on story and character development, I actually enjoy more CoG than Tin Man, obviously thats just my opinion but what Im saying is that these games should not be dismissed based on the interface only.

Anyone have played it because it kinda seem a.) Overpriced (if you compare it with Games from Tin Man Games and b.) like one of those Tutorial you can find on some Developer Forum Websites.
