One of the more interesting rotations in the game. If I were a better geek, I could make a clever reference to mathematical transformations here, and those few of you who got it would feel special.
Her knock said she expected to be welcome anywhere, she...

Dandelion visits the Tretogor blue token market.
The Witcher Adventure Game is a strange mix of really bad and the really average. None of its positives will blow you away, but its negatives? Woof.

'You'll see how they forget about these "Wolverines."'

You're as cold as ice, willing to sacrifice... full stop.
Many gamebooks and interactive fictions encourage guesswork. In the best of the former, that guesswork feels more like sleuthing, with the narrative jumping in like a good improv partner to back up whatever arbitrary choices you...

Gary Grigsby’s Battle of Endor
Given that the original PC edition of Battle Isle successor, Battle Worlds: Kronos, hit shelves almost exactly a year ago, there's all sorts of wry witticisms to make about the notion of time.
