My interpretation of one of my favorite TV shows from childhood: Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? This work is primarily based on the TV game show version rather than the computer game, book, or cartoon versions.

That was pretty entertaining. The descriptions of different countries were kind of "meh", they were interesting to read but didn't have a purpose in the story or as clues. They made it a better experience overall though. I also didn't get what the dossiers were for, they were basically descriptions of the characters but none of it was info you needed to know, and most of them you only interacted with once anyway. Though they provide some context of the show for people who haven't watched it (like me) so I guess they also made it better overall.

I was going to complain that the descriptions and dossiers were pointless. but when I think about it they actually made it better. It's a fun game but story could have been more fleshed out. But in the end it's still a fun game so I gave it 6/8.

Easily one of the best fanfics on the site. It was witty, well written, and really had the feel of the old Carmen Sandiego point-and-click adventure games that I practically grew up on. Great story, man!

Oh that was fun! I gave it a seven, originally I was planning a six, which was about ultimate for a storygame about Carmen Sandiego. I really, really, really loved how you incorporated so much history and educational material into the game. That was especially cool because Carmen Sandiego was an educational game itself. I liked the varying degrees of difficulty from start to end and the writing itself was really impeccable. Only your use of variables as opposed to scripting to display the TIMELEFT variable was anything less than perfect. My only advice to creating a better storygame is to choose a stronger topic. This was still, however, an excellent storygame. Thanks :)

Great story, I especially loved the pictures. Excellent photoshop work. I had to go back and repeat one time, turns out I don’t know much about Great Britain of all places!

This was a little funny. This game is basically a disguised trivia quiz. A few of the questions took a few seconds for me to recall the answer.

All in all this game just makes me think 'eh'.

I really wish that it was longer. It's so short. You should start a serries, or add more capers to the game. I love it to much for it to be so short. Start a serries, or add more, please???

Loved the Morgan Freeman guest appearance on page one. Very 1990s vibe. Nice work.
