Letís cut to the chase: itís not what your expecting.

WQ would be appalled.

Seriously though, nice review! I was looking at this one on Steam just the other day and was wondering if it would be worth a purchase. You've sold me on it.

Oh., there's more for her to be appalled at than that!

But I agree, it's a great reccomendation.

Good review in general, and it does a good job of putting across the appeal of a game that could easily seem completely offputting. I smiled at the descriptions of the rubbish you have to sell early on, such as 'the odd cloth hat'. Nicely done.

The review drags a bit towards the end though, so I think it could do with a little trim. There are also various typos or spelling errors that I'm not feeling pedantic enough to point out, though a couple of things need mentioning:

scourging up food from whatever seems to be growing nearby - I don't think it's possible to 'scourge' food. I'm guessing you might have been going for 'scrounging' but I'm not sure.

That thereís always something to do is approached: that itís never an ineffectual waste of time. - I really don't know what you're trying to say here. I don't understand the sentence.

The long and the short of it is I think the review needs a trim and polish, but is generally good.

Thanks all for the catches. I've gone back an made a number of corrections as well as chopped about 200 words.

This one was a little rushed in to make the RotW deadline. There wasn;t any reviews in for the week when I started work on it, but, yeah, it could have done with another day of proofing. Hopefully, it's all worked out well in the end.

Good stuff. The new version feels much tighter and flows better. I'm reasonably sold on the game too.

That game does look interesting. When I saw this review, my brain flashed back to the one part of Dragon Warrior IV ó the parts of Taloon's chapter where you worked at the store to gain money. Boring stuff that was basically people coming in and buying/selling stuff until your boss gave you 30 gold and told you to go home.

This game seems about 100 gazillion light years beyond that primitive prototype.
