Still playing and very excited for the story. A lot has happened now . Also has cool text and when major
Decisions are made and then cool graphics of the event are placed on the screen like the one I'm posting for example.
Really fantastic idea for the game. I feel like the bandit is someone I know for how well the story is written.
