Player Comments

The genre is one I generally like: Find yourself in an unexplained and foreboding situation, work your way out of it while uncovering story, plot and trials to overcome on the way. I even seek out games (CYO and Computer too) in this genre.

Sadly this game doesn't pull it off. At the beginning I was thinking 'Ok, simple set up that leads to the unusual, good so far but I wonder how the next elements get introduced?'. Sadly they weren't, you are faced with choices which boil down to luck and have no place for logic or reasoning in determining the outcome. I really do hate 'Insta-deaths' being the main source of an 'alternate choice'.

The story was also on the short side with little character or plot development. This actually dissapointed me more as the entire time I kept feeling that with a bit more time and effort, this could have been really good.

Add more description and flavor to the text and broaden out the actual choices and world behind the adventure and this could be great.

Well I thought the game was cute, nice amount of endings and not badly written. Only problem I had with it is that it had so many paths where the choices were "go left" or "go right", which I find kind of annoying. I like choices you can make based on logic or personality, not just a random guess.

Kind of fun. The story has various branches, each with its own story, which is nice. However, nearly every death involves plummeting or breaking my neck, and I don't feel any real connection to the adventures. A good next step would be to introduce another character who could interact with the reader on a meaningful level.

It was good, but next time I would make the choices more logical.

A fairly well written story. Though, I did tire of the choices that relied entirely on luck. :P
