I thought I was going to hate this one but it got better. Well, a little better anyway. The first chapter is SO boring. Your character, Wilbur Weathervane, knows almost literally nothing about anything. I mean, I get it, they need to deliver exposition and having the character be a total fucking dumbarse means they get to explain the plot to Wilbur and the player at the same time. I understand why he is the way he is but that does not make him any more interesting to play as. 😛
Fortunately, Wilbur is the only unbearable character. In later chapters you get to play as other characters. There’s Ivo the pretty elf girl and Nate the dashing rogue. These two have a personality that extends beyond “Duhhhhh” and seem to be better voice acted too (though that might just be because Wilbur’s VA had nothing to work with).
The game claims to be funny. That’s a selling point on the Steam page and everything. They should probably remove that. :p The jokes amount to little more than “Boy! We sure are in a stereotypical fantasy video game setting aren’t we?” as well as “Does this remind you of anything? Maybe a book about a lord? And maybe some rings? It does? Oh good! That can be the joke then!”. There’s some decent jokes in there (I kind of like the World of Businesscraft idea and the final chapter was pretty damn fun) but mostly it’s just predictable and lazy.
If you get it as part of a bundle (as I did) then it won’t hurt to give it a whirl. I wouldn’t spend actual money on it though. 😛
