Player Comments on AI Nightmare

This was rather good for a first storygame. Although an AI going insane and taking over isn't an entirely original idea, I found the story to be creative and fun. I enjoyed finding ways to eliminate the cyborgs without harming my health while keeping an eye on my supplies at the same time. It was nice that I had the option to stab the enemies rather than waste my bullets. I also adored the riddles, as they were fun, little puzzles to figure out. The writing style was pretty good. I wish that the scenes had been a bit more detailed and fleshed out because I sometimes felt distant and detached from the story, but it wasn't a big deal. The grammar was great - I didn't catch many typos, which is an excellent accomplishment. As for the characters, I understand that since this game is short and mostly focused on surviving, there isn't much time for character development or focuses on personalities. While I admit it would've been fun to get to know my teammates a bit more, not really knowing them didn't ruin the story.

Overall, this game was enjoyable, and I'm glad that I played it. The plot and writing were nice, although I wish that the scenes had been a bit more detailed. You did an excellent job for your first game, and I hope to see more of your work on here.

This was a fun blend between a sci fi adventure, a resource management game, and a series of classic riddles. The writing is excellent - there's a straightforward and concise premise that is well-executed; I really got the sense that my player character was exactly how she was described: competent, resourceful, and very badass. The limited bullets and health was just enough to make me stop and mull over my options during each combat sequence, but just simple enough that it never got in the way of playing the game or enjoying the story.

I almost wish the game was longer because I had a lot of fun playing it, but then again, the story wraps itself up neatly in a fitting conclusion. I'd be thrilled to see a sequel, or any other game from this author, because they clearly have a strong grasp on spelling, grammar, and compelling narrative.

Bland and uninteresting, with only 1 ending

Beside a looping bug when you say "interesting" to the mad scientist it seems pretty good. Not my kind of story, but it was enjoyable.

Very good game with fun riddles and puzzles. It was difficult, but I was able to play it and win by reprogramming the AI to my needs. Has great alternate roots too. My only suggestion is simply to add more to the story.

It was pretty good, fairly light on the story, but as a quick puzzle game, it's pretty good. Not terribly difficult, but there are some places where a little more detail on which each choice does would be nice, specifically when you can hack the sprinklers, light, or life support, since it wasn't clear what hacking each would do.

Also, it would be nice to have your choices regarding the scientist and Luke come back, as it was I left them alone and it didn't seem to do anything positive or negative.

Anyways, a fun ~15 minute game, little longer and a bit more detail and it'd be really good.

It was quick and easy. The health and ammunition set up was interesting, but ultimately didn't mean much as I never felt in danger of running out of either. The correct choices were sometimes glaringly obvious because of dialogue pretty much telling you what to choose and even when I made a "wrong" choice, it didn't have much, if any, impact. I don't believe this has very much replay value, but it was a fast little adventure and if you enjoy Sci-fi settings, you might find fun in the atmosphere.

This is actually has effort in it! Good job! I liked it, although I ran out of bullets :(

Decent game, but a few errors. When the blunt object hits your head, it says it was the cyborg you didnt kill from earlier, even when you killed him.
Also, in the riddles, flashlight is flaslight.

I like the riddles

Not a bad game just not many places to explore around the ship and it is more like a riddle game rather than one of those shoot-out adventure games. :)

There is really only one linear story line

Not bad for a first story with advanced editor... however, there was a bug that i encountered near the beginning that made me keep on repeating the choice, and I had to go back a couple of times... 5/8

Good story! Going to replay it to see how choices effect the game, but the writing itself was good without a doubt.

Hoping to see more.

Also, *SPOILER* after talking with scientist and agreeing, then shooting it would gliche. Leaving me stuck and unable to kill him and progress.

Other then that, the script/variables and all that worked well from my view.

Also have to say, very good first story. xD
