Well, after many unsuccessful attempts I gained a happy ending for myself. Not exactly big time, but I'm happy with the ending that I did end up receiving regardless. I found myself choosing love at the end :)

Anyway the writing was good, correlating well with the pictures that was provided for the reader, and this story wasn't simple, I liked that. There was actually a bit of difficulty in this storygame, accompanied with the dread of trying to achieve a rather grand goal alone.

Although this isn't a very long game, it's a well-written one that's good to spend some with. This is a storygame that I would have no issue with recommending.

My only issues were with the loops, they weren't really fun to experience, but fortunately the good writing remedies that problem somewhat.

This was a good effort and enjoyable storygame, bravo.

The whole game had an air of hopelessness while still reminding you that there is always hope if you believe. Some of the combinations of events seem absurd if you play correctly, and I didn't care for the deja vu feel, but for a first story...well, I find it hard to believe that this is a first. Good-no, great-no, fantastic job! Yes, quite laudable.

Well written, although the font was a little too small for my taste. My only other complaint was that even though I drove Cindy Lou home, she was still in Springfield when I got back- so I drove her home again, and then she was at the restaurant where I worked. That girl gets around.

"The movie is an unprecedented success! You are all the rage at film festivals throughout the world. Hollywood is abuzz with the news of a talented newcomer, that being you of course.
Like icing on the cake, you are presented with an Oscar for your role and become one of the most coveted stars in Tinseltown.
You look back to the day when you graduated from high school, and feel like it was part of another lifetime. You have overcome all hurdles and ended up making it, BIG TIME.
Congratulations!
*P.S. Making it Big Time is not the only way to lead a fulfilling a life, see if you can figure out how things could have been different ;)"

LOL! talk about a big dream!

The whole game was full of loops, and how much money do you have in your left sock? Not anuf to get a place to live but you can keep riding the bus out of hollywood and back and eating at the same over priced resterant indefintly, you would think you would learn your lession but no. Try adding a money varibal to the game, I feel that would help a lot with stopping the loops.
