Your in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

Traveling with your best friend Kent, you take a detour on an empty road through a forest. Your car breaks down in the middle of it, and the cold of the night begins to arrive.

But not to worry, as help seems to arrive. A woman appears and tells you that you can spend the night at the "sanctuary" she lives at. You have an important decision to make, face mother nature's worst or trust a woman you've never seen before.

Either way, it's going to be a long night....

Player Comments

I didn't like this. Every time I wanted to make a choice, you'd make it so I would still go with the opposite choice, such as searching the grounds and leaving the place. You put the options there, but there's no real choice at all. That's not a Story-game. 1/8. Good plot though, I liked it as a story, but this is no Story-game.

This was pretty good. Probably the best horror story game I've played so far.

'Your in the wrong place, at the wrong time.' I saw that and I expected a page full of grammatical errors. It's and its, your and you're, there, their, and they're-PLEASE take the time to learn how to differentiate between the homonyms and I guarantee you'll be much better.

Also, as others have mentioned, you make the reader make choices that they don't want to. That isn't a storygame. That's just a story.

Good potential, but needs work. 2/8.

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Is the best ending getting home, then "Obey"?

This was kinda boring, because if you choose a ‘safe’ answer the story will usually end. I feel like it’s only one story that the author is trying to direct the player to. Don’t recommend.

Good story, though you really should take the time to learn the difference between "there", "their", and "they're", and other such common misspellings. The biggest complaint I have, though, is that so many "choices" loop immediately back into the choice you didn't take. For example, you can "choose" to stay or leave, but if you choose to leave, your buddy whines about it and you're forced to stay. It makes for a very linear, railroaded story line, with few actual choices at all.
Overall, a fun horror story, and I like the twist at some of the endings. Keep working at it and improving, you're on the right track!

pretty generic but ok all around.

Some very good story-telling! However, the game was too linear.

Very linear (although my games are pretty linear as well).
