It took a bit before the story really hit its stride, but it slowly unfolded into a really entertaining horror story. There are a lot of bloody, gruesome ways to die - in fact, there's just a lot of blood and gruesome things in general - but the reveal of Dawnwood as a town with a dark secret was very well done, and some of the endings were very satisfying.

The characters are somewhat stock for the genre and don't seem to have all that much depth, so it reads a bit like a cliché young adult romance at first. I was worried, at first, that it would be taking the Twilight route, but then the second half - which was far more plot heavy - kicked in, and the story took a sharp turn for the better. Or, the more macabre, but that's a good thing, given the genre.

All in all, I had fun, there was definitely a sense of horror and dramatic tension, and the story was expansive and long enough to keep me playing for quite a while. Some more proof-freading would help, since there are mistakes here and there, and a little more characterization would help make the plot more compelling, but it's not bad. Not bad at all.

This was definitely creepy. Hazel ended up getting pregnant with the key bearer and managed to escape from the dead man twice. She also managed to lure the beast to the cultist and live through it all. This girl was pretty tough. I really liked it though.

6/8 Cool story. A few mistakes here and there. Seems like a lot of choices but many of them lead to the same outcome. However it was fun to play and well thought out. Good job

I like it, but why does Hazel act like a jackass? I like the story and characters though.

It was interesting, but kind of linear.

I enjoyed this story, it reminded me of the Point Horror stories I used to read when I was a little Will11 (they're basically Goosebumps for teens). I think you should definitely write more of these sort of stories, this one's a perfect little ghost story for a long winter's night when it's cold outside and the wolves are howling in the distance... (where am I?... :) )
