Friends Beyond 2: Branches of Destiny

Description
Wesley says, "This was an ambitious effort at making a game with a non-linear story line. In doing this, I may not have closed all the doors I needed to at certain points in the game. I don't know of any specific places where this could occur, but there may be some. I suggest that you save the game using multiple save slots. That way if you find yourself stuck in one of the regions, you don't have to start all over."

Storyline: This is part 2 of the Friends Beyond Trilogy. I was wondering in the first part what the story was about and this part is no better. You start on a boat, then you are suddenly on an island and after that you have to find out for yourself what to do, but I had a hard time figuring that out. You can do several things, but they do not connect in a storyline. That was, I guess, also the idea behind this D-mod, since it is a non-linear game, but a game without any story is boring to play.

Map and graphics: The map is huge and boring. There are many screens with just borders and no sprites on them.

Music: The music is good.

Good: The idea of a non-linear game is nice, but this one lacks excitement and fun.

Not so good: The main problem about this D-mod is that it is boring to play. Since you do not know what to do, the only thing left to do is to just wander a bit and since the map is huge and boringly empty, that is no fun. You are really glad when you see a house, but then it turns out the house is empty or the character inside says something that is not important and does not add anything to the story.
Some screenlocks do not unlock.

Overall: Huge map, not that much of a story.

Fit for: If you like non-linear games you could give this one a try.
