Very impressive, I found this to be a rather enjoyable adventure. The writing was clever and I couldn't find any faults in it. Also, great use of pictures, I liked the variety and they were also used in good fashion. From what I read, everything seemed to flow quite well and make sense in the context of the story, which also had it's genuine moments of humor.

From a technical sense, this story does well in most aspects. I think that there's a good mix of game and dialogue here, as there's definitely enough of both to keep one entertained, at least in my case.

Also, I liked the variety of choices that were presented in this game, there was never a dull moment because of that fact. This game definitely impressed me. And as for the overall difficulty, it wasn't too hard and the only challenge that I found was trying to achieve the 'best' ending I could that would explain how the protagonist found their self to be in their predicament.

All things considered, this is a decent quality game. One I wouldn't have much issue with in recommending others to experience, so good work!

I believe the story possesses an excellent sense of humor. It reminds me of a friend of mine. The pictures really add to the effect. Am I correct in assuming you took them in a local high school?

Not brilliant, but pretty funny. Its a spoof of more cheesy fantasy games, so if you don't think you have the right sense of humour, press back now

I don't think I'll be ingesting my daily champagne for a while...

Great writing on this one. It's an escape game that entertains AND provides you with many choices (though many do end up as deaths).

Seeing as my character ended up waking from a dream, I do not have any idea as to the background behind the weird place I "woke up" in, but surely an explanation IS there...probably.

Cents are absolutely worth spending on this. 6/8.

Damn, this is actually so funny. I remember reading Blunder Brain back when I was a pre-teen and it totally went over my head.

"These images have nothing to do with the castle... what a lazy author..." and so on and so forth.

I was just stupid. This was good.
