Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 16. If this were a movie, it would probably between PG-13 and R.

To put it simply, you find objects, solve puzzles, and fight  zombies and stuff. It's pretty violent and only suitable for older players, and there is only ONE good ending (unless you think dying is a good ending, which some people do). Remember to write down the code when you finish the game, as you will need it to play the sequel (which SHOULD be out by the end of the year, IF this story gets good enough ratings.)

This was quite an entertaining story game, and it definitely wasn't that bad. The 3047-word long story game seemed pretty long as there were many pages. But, each page contained only a few sentences to a paragraph and it lacked quite a bit in a description. Anyway, let's get to the meat of my review.

Plot: The plot for this story game is something that you could definitely have improved on. You should remember the 3W's tactic. When Where and why, because in this story game you do not mention where the story takes place, ETC. You could've also added a bit of backstory.

Characters: There is virtually no text to do with the characters, you could've at LEAST told us some of the facts about the protagonist(s) such as their occupation, hobbies, and who they are as a person.

Setting: You did not include any setting whatsoever, you probably should've talked about where the story was meant to be and so on although it is not completely necessary.

Theme: I am a big fan of the zombie survival theme and I am happy that I found this. Your great sense of humour slots in very nicely with the story and I actually laughed while reading some of the pages.

Spelling/Grammar/Punctuation ETC: I surprisingly did not find much punctuation or spelling mistakes at all, as I was reading through, I don't remember finding anything that was wrong. So good job on that!

Conclusion: Overall this was quite a good story game to read and humorous and entertaining. Although it was short, it was definitely well written.

Oh boy, I would have liked this better back in 2005. I was 11. This would have been fun and I would have never noticed all the glaring mistakes and inadequacies. The fact that this was featured at one point goes to show how far the standard of quality has risen.

It did make me laugh. I thought the option on the first page was pretty funny. The author picked out pretty good pictures for the items, and some of the moments with the narrator throwing shade were successfully humorous.

It was not a good decision in my opinion to spend half the story talking directly to the reader. That time would have been better spent giving players freedom.

As the game is a part of a series, we might could anticipate and forgive that there is only one proper ending, but we could have at the very least been given a real option on how we got there.

Pretty funny game. This piece has already been dissected over a thousands times by now so that is all I will say.

It's funny but the plot is lacking and it's a bit linear.

My main problem with this is that there's not much here at all. It's more of just a puzzle than an actual storygame. Obviously with a 2/8 length you're not giving yourself much room, but you could put actual plot into this.

The writing is ok. There are a few errors throughout, but the English mostly holds up. So there's that at least.

The choices offered and actions by default performed by the protagonist are often absurd, which is something I don't like. If you're going for a silly story, then that's fine, but I don't think this was trying to be completely absurd.

And finally, my issue with the plot is that there really isn't one. You can make a puzzle game and still have an excellent plot, but maybe you were just going for a game. Anyway, it was not great, but it wasn't terrible.
