“I believe that this game will provide a getaway into another place where good people are fighting against an ever-evolving threat from not only themselves, but a greater evil. It has great writing, and there has been a great deal of thought put into it.”
“A western for those who love westerns and those who don't. At roughly 37,000 words, it's a Storium gem that *everyone* should read, as an example of some of the best work this platform can offer. A beginner friendly premise that is simple yet unfolds into surprising richness, characters that make you cheer and cry. Action scenes that pop off the page like a movie. A way of handling death that makes you cherish life for the gift it is. Dead by Dawn not only makes you long for a sequel, but makes you long to be in it.”
“A rewrite of the ancient Greek epic tragedy of Theseus, the flesheating Minotaur, the Labyrinth, Ariadne's Thread, the Fall of Icarus etc. You probably think you know the story. Yet it is also the story of seven people brought together by circumstance, driven forward by feelings that have not changed in 3000 years: hope, fear, glory, duty, arrogance, past events, vengeance, but above all: love. You already know the *how* of the tale, this time you know the *why*.”
“Pixie Games takes a band of adventuring pixies and their companions through some refreshing takes on classic stories. The writers deliver a wonderful mix of whimsy, humor, suspense, and at times a surprising amount of emotional appeal and depth as their characters travel through magical lands on their journey facing a wide array of threats and obstacles. If you like re-tellings of old stories so that they are enjoyable for all audiences, this is the story for you.”
“Farthington is a country village in Regency England. The tone is light and there are more than a few romances to charm the reader. The characters are a delightful mix of native Farthingtonians and visitors from London written by players with an equally delightful mix of experience of the time period. While ours may be a small town, the Season is in full swing with dances, picnics, church fetes, brawls, and even a Bit with a Dog. If you are feeling a bit jaded in the big city, come to Farthington!”
“A compelling story full of twists and turns that drags you deeper and deeper into the horror unfolding. Smile for the Camera is an extremely well done horror story with intensity bleeding through every single word. From the very first to the very last move, it keeps you on the edge of your seat. As the characters are thrown into peril, you cannot help but root for them. Each loss is not only a painful part of the story, but also breaks into your emotions showing you how attached you get to these compelling characters.”
“This story features a crew of loveably unusual couriers who, in the midst of a military blockade, must discover a way to bypass the dangerous ships and deliver a mysterious cargo to its destination on time. If you'd like to read a light-hearted, hilarious story that features a great all-female cast of characters, cute and deadly furry aliens, fantastic wit, and harkens back to some of the best aspects of light-hearted 1950s pulp, this game is definitely for you.”
“Meddlesome is an intricately-crafted and complex time-shenanigans 'nothing is as it seems' rollercoaster. The narrator is a master at interweaving threads of time and knows and shows where the story is going no matter what the incredible writers and their well-realized, living, breathing characters throw at it. The writers are all pulling the best out of each other and that's a pleasure to see. I've cheered and groaned, cried and near felt my heart stop, and have come to love this as one of my favorites on Storium.”
“'Lord of the Rings' meets 'Bridesmaids' as four loud, rude, badly-prepared 'Bad Girls' of short stature go on the sort of quest that usually ends with everyone in prison. Includes epic scenes of goat-wrangling, property destruction, accidental flirting, spelunking, bluffing, and drunken country dancing. The kind of story where you root for the protagonists to succeed, but feel slightly bad about yourself for doing it. If you like fantasy, barnyard animals, and crude humour, you're going to love reading this.”
“A story of adversity and suffering, of companionship and affection, of exhilaration and terror, this scifi thriller explores far more than the lonely recesses of the universe, it explores the lonely recesses of the human condition. In the face of incalculable odds, what does it take for a crew lost in hostile space to survive? Wonderfully written action, adventure, and vivid, endearing characters await the reader who along the journey is left to confront the gut-wrenching question: what would I do, given their situation?”
