I'm AppDude27, nice to meet you!

I am a Programmer and Video Game Developer!


Some people on here have been questioning me about the current status of MyVacation. I have some news to share regarding the game. Over the last year, I have been diligently writing/programming/designing/animating a full fledged MyVacation video game!

I plan to release the game for Steam PC/Mac. Console releases are soon following. Thank you for your continued patience!

I will post updates very soon!

Earning 100 Points Earning 500 Points Having 2 Storygame(s) Featured Given by Will11 on 01/14/2018 - For your great stories


Featured Story 4 Little Mice

Four little mice went to search for some cheese, one got trapped, and then there were three.

Three little mice were playing with glue, one got a little too sticky, and then there were two.

Two little mice were on the run. Kitty wouldn't play nice, so then there was one.

One little mouse left all alone. He choked himself, and then there were none.

4 Little Mice is a Choose Your Own Adventure Poem that I wrote over the course of several weeks. The story tells a tale of love, companionship, sacrifice, and more. 

Storygame Features:

-Based on Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None", but with a furry little twist!

-The butterfly effect has never been more important! Each and every choice you make could have drastic consequences!

-With over 10+ endings, you'll definitely be coming back for more.

-Fixed a bug that brought certain mice back to life.
-Fixed a bug that prevented player from progressing. (Special thanks to Will11 and 

Featured Story Before Midnight

Why does your Composition and Rhetoric Professor have to assign a 10 page paper due by the end of the week at midnight?

Of course, you procrastinate your way through the week to Friday night. It's 7 o'clock PM. Only 5 hours until the paper is due. No exceptions!

You open your laptop and begin typing...until the power goes out.

Adventure your way through strict RA's, bug infestations, wild frat parties, and more in this all new storygame!


-Butterfly effect decisions that will affect choices later on in the story.

-Is that item worth taking? Or is it better left where it is?

-Multiple endings and even a "secret ending".

-See all your choices in the end.

Will you submit your paper in time before midnight?

Version 1.5 Updates:
+Fixed more grammar
+Updated the Score variable. It will now display how many pages you wrote in the comments! 

Kill that Spider!

Kill That Spider! jpg.jpg













You just finished eating dinner, and now you have the poops! Time to go to the bathroom!

You walk along inside, shut the door, and lock it.

As you begin to sit on the toilet, you see massive spider on the countertop.!!!!

In this horrifying story game, play the role of a person just trying to use the toilet, while at the same time, killing an evil spider.


-Tons of endings leaving you or the spider in a better (or worse) condition than when you started.

-Multiple items to choose from! Protect yourself from the attacks with each new acquired object.

-Can you survive? 

This is a shorter story than my usual, run of the mill, adventure stories. If you're looking for something that isn't too long to commit to, then you will love this storygame.

Warning: You may experience strange tingling sensations on your skin after reading this story. Do not read this story if you have a fear of spiders. No spiders were harmed in the making of this story.

Lose it All

Are you one of the millions of Americans affected by obesity, high blood pressure, type II diabetes, and more?

Does your job involve you sitting around all day?

Are you feeling the side effects of being overweight, lower self esteem, sleep deprivation, binge eating, and depression?

Well guess what?

Today is the day.

Today is the day that YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE.

Welcome to "Lose it ALL" the latest Storygame by AppDude27.

Here is a word from our creator:

"I wanted to write a storygame that would help inspire people to live more healthy, fit, and active lifestyles. Trust me, it's so hard. I'm battling obesity myself!

By creating a game that revolved around living a healthier lifestyle, I thought that I could make it into an adventure of sorts. Something where the player can feel that their in-game choices are not only affecting their in-game character, but also their real life counterparts.

Hope you have fun."


- An open world where you can do what your heart desires!

- Lots of fun activities, from cardio and lifting at the gym, to rock climbing and swimming!

Thank you!

In the research facility, look inside the bathroom. There's an option that says "Search the counter". You'll find the buggy keys.

I also wrote a walkthrough of the game. The URL is below:

MyVacation is in the process of becoming a full fledged video game! 

The game is being created with Unity for PC/Mac (possibly ports for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One)

I've been dedicating lots of time and hours into it and it will be available for PC/Mac potentially near the end of 2018.

Stay tuned!

Thanks for the continued support!

There are some surprises planned for MyVacation, so stay tuned!

Myvacation on 9/2/2016 4:26:15 PM

I took it down to update the game. Including new features and areas. Adding new skills, locations, etc.
Also correcting some errors from the first time around. 


My Vacation Help. on 2/23/2016 1:44:51 PM

Buy a steak burger from the Pool's Shop and use it on the lion. That should do the trick! 

If you unlocked the monkey, you can also use the monkey on the lion.

Choose Your Own Adventure Radio Show! on 9/30/2015 9:17:25 PM

Exactly, so something that is not "overly violent" to the point that it's gut wrenching to read. Some examples of this include:

- Excessive language involving pain, blood, guts, and other bodily harm

- Nothing related to intense sexual acts or sexual innuendos that are suggestive in nature. 

Think about it this way, EVERYONE listens to radio. That includes almost all age groups. Would you want your grandma to hear this? Your 16 year old cousin or nephew? Your son or daughter? Etc.

Choose Your Own Adventure Radio Show! on 9/30/2015 12:21:08 PM

Go Your Own Way is an AMAZING podcast. I love listening to their show. It's actually what inspired me to do a radio show of my own. There are some differences, however. For one, we are also a video game talk show. The choose your own adventure portion is only an hour and it's where the real fun begins. 

Obvious sexual or violent stories are not allowed on radio. Stories that could be  PG-13 are allowed. Note that I will curtail or reword stories if there is profanity.It's part of the college's limitations for radio.

As far as length goes, we have a whole hour. Sometimes if we end the game talk show part early then we will have more time. Otherwise, if we can manage to finish the story in under an hour, then it's good. 

We would probably only go with one path. (Maybe two if time permits.)

Choose Your Own Adventure Radio Show! on 9/29/2015 10:25:11 PM

Hello to all Storygamers!

Recently, I have formed together an adventurous group of people like myself to host our own Choose Your Own Adventure Radio Show! 

We plan on reading stories from talented authors like you on this site!

Some Story Requirements Before They Are Read...

1. The story MUST BE APPROPRIATE. That means no swearing or profanity. No intense violence. 

2. Length of the story must not be too long. We could do multiple shows for one story, but it is radio so it would be harder.

Other than that, feel free to post any recommendations that you feel are appropriate for radio! I will post episodes via sound cloud and there will be an iTunes Podcast eventually as well. More updates to come.
