Player Comments on Are You Chicken?
Well. This story was a lot better than I remembered it being.
First off, as apparent from the first page; you need to break up your text a little and put some paragraphs in.
The second thing I can tell from the very first page is that you haven't been proofreading your writing much, which you should really do since we are all nit picky about grammar here :P
"Exept for one which looks fine (exept for the wildly grown back and front yards)."
Though, seeing as how you spelled "except" the same way, maybe you should consult a dictionary instead.
Now, ignoring the various spelling mistakes in this storygame (and there are plenty of them), there's a few more things I'd like to point out.
The constant use of "you" as the first word of each sentence.
Take this excerpt for example;
You decide to go through the hole. You get on your hands and knees and go through. The bits of wire poke into you and make you bleed. You finally get through and look at your sores. Jamie and Alex follow. You make your way up to the house and Jamie comes up next to you. You knock on the door. Nobody answers. The door then creeks open and you walk in. You look around at the old fashoined house and you think it is very creepy. You walk over to the stair case and start going up. Alex asks "Do you think this is a good idea?". You look at her. She is usually right about this stuff but you can hardly resist going up the stairs. You say to her..."
There was 9 sentences that started with "You".
I don't know about everyone else but repetitive sentence structure is a huge no-no for me.
Try starting with a verb or combining some of the sentences.
That goes for the whole story, and definitely not just this one paragraph since your entire storygame does have the commonality of at least half of the writing on the page starting with "You".
Now, moving on; the story does have a comprehensive message of "don't pollute" (hmm I wonder if that's due to the whole "almost every single ending page has DONT POLLUTE" or a version of that :P), but I feel you really could have done more.
You basically had them vomit exposition at you towards the end, and I really would have liked a longer story and less "give you the backstories in this huge paragraph" and more maybe poke around to find out more about them.
I like this idea, I really do. But its such a letdown when the exciting part is over in 3 clicks.
At least you had a fair amount of writing and more plot than most!

Wow. What an horrible grammar. The grammar is of an 8-year old child. And the story sucks.

SPELLING! GRAMMAR! These are the things you need to improve the most upon. For example, I have already seen a few mistakes...

Fun, a few spelling errors but otherwise well thought out and entertaining. Definitely worth replaying but needs to be proofread again or tested by someone else.

Well, I didn't die, so... yay? It seems like this is one of those things where whatever happens in your dream can kill you, or... something like that. Fun, though, but some grammar is off.

At the same exact day that my science pollution essay was due! It was good, just had a little bit of spelling mistakes, but that barely affected my opinion of this story.

Well, I like the messages on not to pollute and the storyline is decent. It would be better if it was longer and had a little more branching.

It's spelled pollute, just so you know.

Aside from any message that exists within the story, there are approximately three unique choices which all lead to the same generic place with a silly 'big reveal' and subsequent choice of dialogue which all result in death, save one which results in an 'it was all a dream' scenario.
And if you 'chicken out' you get the 'don't pollute' message without context.
Essentially, the story is silly. However, it then tries to convey a serious message by using the ridiculous story to support its view.
I agree, don't pollute. But c'mon, this is terrible. And you misspelled pollute - which, given that the message occurs in every ending (Which is to say, both of them)I'm surprised you didn't notice). This is on top of a slew of less remarkable misspellings.
Before you criticise me for taking what is a juvenile story seriously, consider this; by representing the dangers of pollution in such a ri

I didn't realize how political this was going to be when I started. I forgive you, though. It was entertaining.

Decent story, but the ending was kind of lame because there wasn't enough suspense for it. And while you described what happened to the people, "slimey mummies" isn't exactly a good description for how they are now. I kind of wish you would have described the area a bit more, too. Especially inside the house.

it says that you die unless you go a certain way. whats up with that?

Not too bad--a little abrupt and more buildup to the capture would be good, but it is interesting nevertheless. The ending was pretty good, but seemed that it might be a little bit cliche. Still, pretty good.

The sentences bordered on run-on, but it kept me interested. This seems like it should be in horror though.

I actually played this a few weeks ago, but I must have been logged off at the time, because I don't appear to have rated it. I don't really see the need to write a comment (I must agree with the common opinion below), although I would like to ask a question: what motivated you to write this?

That was a nice game. I almost didn't notice it on the new games. It isn't an advanced game so I can't really grade a person on that. The storyline was very original. I'm glad. Make more original games.
