There is a saying that goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.” I believe if anyone has ever had the opportunity to read a book or watch an animated movie that has a lot of words in it, they’ll know what I mean. The amount of words has everything to do with how captivating a story is. A book is about the experience of reading and watching. An animation is about the feeling of being part of a group and seeing something that is beautiful.
That said, I don’t think there is anything wrong with having a lot of words in a story, really. Words are used to convey the feeling of the story. A great book could go on and on with descriptions of the characters. An animated movie can also be extremely detailed, with lots of action and character detail. The problem is too many words (or too many words for that matter) can make a story sound too wordy.
The story was really good.
I’ve always said I don’t like writing stories, but I have to say that they are one of the most fun ideas I’ve ever put one in my head. Writing a story in a way that makes you feel like a character is a character, and that makes you want to write that character a little differently sometimes. But that’s just me.
The story was good, but it didn’t make me like the characters as much as I would have liked. And I don’t know if you can really call it a bad story because the author took a lot of characters you usually wouldn’t take seriously and made them all interesting. It just wasn’t done right.
The biggest problem with the story was the fact that the characters are all characters in their own right, they are not talking about real life situations. As a result they don’t have many dialogues outside of the story. So while you may like them, you’ll likely have to go through the entire story to realize that. I feel like the authors took great pains to make the “other characters” feel like people you might actually know.
You’re right, the problem wasn’t the writing. The problem was the author. They are way too focused on creating a world of fantasy and magic, with no effort to make it realistic. I’m not saying they should have never made it realistic, nor am I saying they shouldn’t have made it the way they did, but I’m saying they should have taken a little more time to make their characters and world feel like real people.
Maybe I just don’t agree with the author, but I wouldn’t call their world real. They tried to make it real by making it a fantasy, but I don’t think the writing was that good.
There’s a few things I can say about the character of the game, but mainly I’d like to point out that they tried to make this the best they could and still deliver a game with plenty of potential. This is not a game I’d pick up right now, but one where there’s still plenty of time to make it better.
The problem with math and math and math is that its all so hard to understand. Sure you know the answers, but you can’t explain them. A game like this might not be the best thing to give you a way to understand the math behind it, but I just can’t say I think it was bad.
