You are a high school student tasked with rewriting the ever-popular play of Hamlet for your school project. You come to realize that you and Hamlet are a lot more alike than you first thought.

Of course, your father wasn't killed by his brother so he could become King, but hey. You and Hamlet would have gotten along well.

Player Comments

First path was with Gil and the other person. The story started off great in the beginning with the introduction of the friends that you get to choose from. I knew Henry would obviously be the better choice since "besties 4 ever" is generally the better route. However party routes always intrigue me so I went down that path with the party and the undescriptive hookup that could have had a bit more added to it without mature content being needed.

The endings to the paths that I had received seemed a bit rushed but they were all the "bad" ones with him losing everyone so the good ones were probably more descriptive. Even so, you could have added some more deppresing aspects for more emotion since losing everything is pretty awful.

Still, this was a pretty good first story that had good plot structure but could have had a lot more description added. Hope to see more stories from you.

I liked how the book was nice and calm, nothing scary. But I wished it could be more involved with the Hamlet play assignment.
