The premise of this game is very straightforward, you are abducted by aliens and have to escape to get back home. I thought the writing did a reasonable job of setting the scene, and trying to figure out how to find useful items and then use them helped keep the game engaging. It took me a little bit of time to work out how to actually use the cards to escape! The character was developed just enough to make you care about them. Purely for fun, I checked some of the ‘bad’ endings and I thought they were kind of amusing.

The game was very simple, but what was written was executed well, although I would have liked there to be some more puzzles, e.g. to get each of the cards. The brevity of the game and simplicity of the challenge and plot mean I can only give it a 5/8, but all in all it was a good storygame.

I loved this. The puzzle itself was a little simplistic, but the way it's designed, the way the player actually moves around the game world made it feel more like interactive fiction than a CYOA. One of my WIPs is in that style so it's interesting seeing it in practice.

The writing was good and funny, and most of the actions that led to death were clued in well enough. (Though I was clicking them anyway just to read the endings! The 'didn't you read the sign' one was short but got a laugh out of me.)

It was short, straightforward, and fun with a touch of silliness. I really enjoyed the narration, and the puzzle was both original and interesting.

I also enjoyed the pretty colors. The blue background really added to the alien atmosphere, although your writing alone was enough to set the tone.

And most of the death scenes made me laugh, which is always a plus.

I have to say, even though it only had a 10 day time limit, the story could have been a bit longer. I was actually disappointed in the story game. It was ok...but it had too much backtracking to the point where it did not feel like a story anymore. However, the plot was great! I enjoyed it. I feel like someone of your writing capability could remake this story into something even better. However, for now I am sorry to give you a rating of a...
