It's hard to grasp how much smart thought and tough work went into this. It's not a perfect game, but it's still a pretty satisfying time sink. The aliens being able to raise the bet was a great feature.

There was a moment when I said to myself, "I guess I'm betting the farm." I bet 30 and the aliens raised. I had no choice. When I won the hand it came with a victorious feeling. This game can be kinda tough, especially if you have the discipline not to cheat it.

A feature that would have been cool was a way for your character to cheat, within the confines of the game. Maybe a way to keep a card hidden behind your ear. As only a common man though, I'm not sure how much more scripting that would have made necessary.

This is pretty fun with a great sense of humor. I'll be suggesting this to friends.

This was actually really fun. I didn't have high hopes because I hate card games. It was quite entertaining and had a good humor element. I shudder with dread at the thought at the amount of scripting and that which went into this, so well done doing that. All in all it was a great game to play and had me entertained for quite some time. Really well done, great job.

I loved it. The aliens being able to raise was a good touch. I also loved the extra things that happen.

The coding must have been a serious nightmare! It's truly impressive that you were able to create poker like this. However, the story itself was pretty random. I'd love to see this incorporated into a really good story. But still, very well done and impressive despite the lack of a more interesting backdrop.

Ok, this game offense, but it was weird, unlike anything I've ever seen. I like the plot, and I love how much effort you put in it, but maybe offer some more info about how to play this...? Overall, it was really fun.
