The Nebula by adrao

Welcome to "the Nebula", a gamebook where you take the role of a starship captain trying to discover the reason behind a recent act of sabbotage/attack on a far-flung corner of the Empire.

The game is complete and rather large (322 pages) giving the player the ability to explore around a galaxy of 17 star systems and numerous planets. It includes automated combat sequences, a skill system and character creation. The game is currently v0.5.3, and I am working on v.6.0 that will further expand one of the planets in the game. Further expansions in the future will increase exploration opportunities in existing planets and add new star systems.

Any comments/recommendations/criticisms so far are welcome!

Played about 40 pages into the game and had no issues technically. I was impressed with the writing of the story and the choices given. A fun game and quickly draws you into the action. You should be proud of your efforts as I'm sure it took a lot of work.

One of the biggest Text Adventures I've seen, and you never know if you'll die, so you're constantly on your toes. Thrilling and endlessly deep, I salute you.

This game is awesome. My only concern is that some planets have very little places to explore, like Aldeon prime. I like the level of detail that goes into ships, and how you have various officers that you can talk to. This is probably one of the best games on this website, and that is saying a lot.

I just couldn't finish it (had no idea where to go next) but I played it extensively before that, and, honestly, the quality is exceptional. Other than a few typos, the writing is excellent. The quality is good enough that I could see this being on Steam.

Very good so far. I ran into a bugged choice, but i restarted it a few times and it worked.

Well crafted, with equal parts mystery, intrigue, and action; but sometimes the choices don't work.
They go black and remain unclickable, which is why I give 4 stars instead of 5, since having to restart every time this happens is tiresome.

Otherwise, the quality is exemplary.

A great example of using the storybook mechanics to create an immersive, and open-world (Galaxy) game. A lot of time, though, and effort have obviously been put into this game. As it is only at v0.5, I will defiantly keep on track of new updates. Overall, I had a blast playing this.
