Humor

You have a simple task -- go and get the mail. Oh, it sounds easy, but could you ever imagine how many different things could get in your way?

This is my first attempt at a storygame. It's a very basic "Choose your path" story. Let me know what you think of it in the forums!

I don't know what to think...

So, we definitely have some good humor here, but in the mixture we have heavy doses of lolrandom. Lolrandom humor can be good, but using it extensively (to cover plotholes and leave gaps) is a big no-no for storywriting.

The storygame itself was rather illogical at some points, and a lot of the choices didn't make much sense. The storygame uses a type of reverse psychology, in which doing the exact opposite of what you should is the best option at some points.

The neighborhood did seem like one of a kind. A bully that doesn't mind killing you, murderous rabbits, dogs that can result in your death...

It was a good plot. I loved the idea of making such a simple task into a storygame. Not many authors can do such a thing.

The setting could have been fleshed out a bit more as well.

I liked the character development (although there wasn't a lot), but I was able to feel for these characters I suppose, in a humorous sort of way.

The grammar was nearly perfect. One quick proofreading can fix this.

3/8, pretty average.

Getting the mail has never been more difficult. This story was quite random and humorous, whenever I was making my best attempt on surviving the horrors of the neighborhood. Between the kiler rabbits, dogs, and pretty much... Well, everything else.

This game was rather fun.

It is an amusing story especially when sleep deprived. Though the option for jumping out of the window felt too repetitive.

From now on, I'll hire someone to get the mail.

Hilarious and gross if you get the right ending.
