What ones have you read? Do they fit the shelf? Do they fit the genre? What are your favourite moments? Who would you recommend it for? Do choices matter? Do you plan on reading any others?
YES!! Welcome to the Amazon Forest is easily one of my favourite fantasy stories on Episode. The directing and the dialogues are amazing and it has a male MC, so I just wish the author would update more often lol. I’ve read Temperamental and Why Today? too, and I enjoyed both, but I’m just so happy for @XxAlphaBetaxX, I’ve been waiting for this for ages!
I read Eternal Flame before it was featured on the Hidden Gems shelf. Actually, I read it about 2 months before that. IT IS SO GOOD and I get super excited every time it gets updated. Also definitely a hidden gem. I was completely surprised when I saw how many reads it had.
Oof! I barely said anything about the stories. Okay, so…
I reread Welcome to the Amazon Forest since there were new scenes added that I was seeing screenshots of. I forget the level of directing in this story, like it’s actually flawless. I think I basically confirmed I think it’s a good fit for the shelf. For genre, whilst I do agree it’s a fantasy, it could even work as an adventure story too. There’s a lot of funny moments too, not enough to be comedy but enough to make me chuckle from time to time. Fave scene either has to be, um, the throwing-powder-scene which I now know depends on choices… and the steamy swim in the pond scene which I really mean is ~steamy~ and also depends on choices too now I know thanks to my replay
I also read C H A O S last night and would highly recommend. I’m like an anti-art scene reader AND an anti-action reader, but this story literally had me gobsmacked. There wasn’t that many choices, but I really think you don’t even need them to enjoy this story. It really made me feel insecure about my own abilities and even though that sounds so depressing, that’s a compliment
I started reading Donor Baby now too If I finish it when this thread is still open, I shall be back.
