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" was an adorable, warm game that immediately captured my heart and attention. Written in a poem format, it sounded similar to a children's story and reminded me of the popular nursery rhyme "Three Blind Mice", only this story had a modern, slightly macabre twist. The game offered a variety of different scenes and endings that were all fun to discover, and I admit that I purposely chose the paths that would kill the mice, just so I could see what inventive deaths that were laid out for them. The cast of characters were all endearing, each having their own unique abilities and personalities that made them stand out. It saddened each time I failed to save a mouse, which pushed me to replay the game so that I could help the entire family escape. It was surprising that giving the needle to the foolish mouse would save one of the siblings, and it warmed my heart to see that the mouse who appeared "useless" turned out to be a hero.

Overall, "4 Little Mice" successfully grabbed my interest with its endearing story and multiple endings, and it left me smiling at the end. It definitely wouldn't be an appropriate game for younger kids, despite the cheerful tone the narrator adapted throughout the story (which somehow made the death scenes even scarier). I'm glad that I chose to play this game and would definitely recommend it for those who love cute stories and adorable mice.

Amazing, but rough. Wow. I enjoyed it being a simple poem based off of a real book. By the way, I got the Pa and Ru ending.

Poor little mice! I got the ending where Pa and Ru survived.
Very nice story, I enjoyed it! Loved how it was like a poem.

Really cute and unique. The fact it was in a poem and rhymed was pretty neat and must have been hard to do. The advanced editor was used very well, not an overwhelming amount of items but enough for my own liking.

Awesome! I really liked how you made us think that one decision was the best, while in actuality, the choice that looked stupid would keep you alive! Great work!

This was an AMAZING storygame! I love the storyline and how you can choose what you think is right but then POP, a mouse dies. This is also really creative and it's sorta simple but SO GOOD! Great job!
