Nick, this website was very well done because it enables users to explore through the games while it's content remains useful. The layout of the entire site is simple yet visually entertaining. If there was something that you could improve with this media product, it would be to add a little bit more information aside from punishments. Other then that it was very well done! If you were to pick your own punishment other than no punishment, what would it be?
Nick, I think you did a great job on this website! You were able to make it fun, while still making it effective. There was a lot of information about crimes, and the punishments that came with those crimes. I found the part where it talked about all the different kinds of punishments very interesting. I also really enjoyed the game, because it was interactive, yet intellectual! It was interesting too to see the difference in punishments because of your social class, and how the crimes were not as bad but still considered for the lower class.! Overall, I think you did an amazing job and I do not believe there was too much I would fix! good work!
I really enjoyed your website, Nick. The topic is certainly interesting, and I was surprised to see some of the methods used, such as the Scavenger's Daughter, I never even knew of such a method until your media product. Your matter-of-fact tone actually serves to make the website a little creepy, as you calmly explain the gruesome practices of the Elizabethan era. It makes for a good atmosphere. Probably my only complaint is that I would've liked to hear about how some of the punishments were invented, and by whom, and when did they start to go out of style, and why, etc. The history of punishments and torture is very interesting, I did a project on it back in Grade 10. Possibly the most interesting part of your presentation, in my opinion, was when I read that poisoning a person is punishable by being boiled in oil; when I was researching the Elizabethan afterlife, I read somewhere that in Dante's idea of purgatory, corrupt or villainous politicians were boiled in oil. Perhaps they poisoned the minds of the public? Anyways, very interesting website, good job.
A very interesting idea! I ejoyed and appriciated the different way you decided to persent your information. I found it both unique and interesting to read rather than a powerpoint. I learned many different things, and found the information you persented informative and interesting.
I liked your website Nick. The topic you chose was fascinating, and I thought you presented it in a meaningful way. There was a lot of useful and relevant information about your topic and it was very fascinating. I found some of the information to be a bit creepy and disturbing but I understand it is quite relevant with your topic. The game was good and it helped the viewer understand your product. The only thing I would critique is that i found myself getting a bit lost as there were a lot of components to your website. A final question I would like to ask is were these the most common types of punishments or were there other ones that were used that are not mentioned?
