    we are allowed to continue our game from the first great tournament but we cannot upload our save from the first game, why?

    I’ve just finished the game, and I’ve got to say It’s quite fantastic. I ended the original with Nadine and as Lord of Redwood (I wasn’t all for the being king deal, I just wanted a quiet life with the people of Redwood, especially my friends there, and of course Nadine). So it was nice to get to continue where I left off. I didn’t like being forced into the war, but in hindsight, I see why it was necessary for the plot. The events at the very beginning actually got my heart racing a bit, when I was fighting to save my daughter, which is pretty impressive considering this is all fake. But it gets you into it; that’s what so good about these apps. I ended up brokering peace with all but one of the tribes, and was hailed as a hero… it was a sweet ending. Well done again, guys, you’ve made an awesome app with opportunity for awesome stories. I really hope there’ll be another sequel so that I can continue where I left off this time!

    hello Mr Philip Kempton. if you see this I want you to know that you delivered. though the game wasn’t as long as the first one, it was just as immersive and captivating. it was great to see all the characters from the first one and be able to continue the story with the choices you made in the first game. the alternate scenarios were fun for a bit but I would have ultimately liked that effort to be spent on adding to the main story. I also think that there should have been one significantly longer scenario that would be considered the “main one” (preferably the Prince one because I thought that was the best and happiest ending) and this one would have been focused on more. taking this I think that you have made another masterpiece that I will recommend to all of my friends. please make more

    Just an FYI for everyone that plays. I love this game. By far one of my favorites. But the rating system on this book is completely screwed. The higher you make your stats the worse you actually perform in those areas during the game play.
