Player Comments on Ground Zero

Ground Zero is one of the stories that I read the first time I found this site and the one that impressed me the most at the time. It might even be considered the reason I kept returning to this site every few months rather than forgetting about it after closing the tab. However, I did not read it again until now. I have to say, it's left an impression on me once more.

The story is very engaging throughout. The events leading up to the nuclear attack are not revealed in detail, but they don't need to be. Why date the story with the villainous country of the week when the results are the same? The main character's life is drastically changed forever.
Every choice will lead you to a different path (save in one spot in the community shelter path in which there are two ways to get the same path). Even choices that may initially appear to be something that will lead to an early death ending often lead to an entirely new path. Depending on the path you choose, you can become a very different person in more ways than one, but the main character himself's basic personality is always consistent.
There was one ending in particular that stuck out in my memory, and I see why again now. The ending when you leave the shelter with Eliza has no epilogue, and it likely did not end happily, but I suppose I am more of a sucker for that kind of emotionally touching ending than I thought. I also liked the poisoned ending and movie ending, as unofficial endings go. No ending left me unsatisfied and feeling ripped-off, but they all left me eagerly clicking the back button in order to read more wonderful endings.
Nothing is perfect, not even Ground Zero. A quick proofreading to remove some repeated phrases and such would have given this story more polish, but the errors are infrequent and never interfered with readability.
Ground Zero is a wonderful and entertaining post-apocalyptic adventure and a very valuable addition to CYS. For anyone looking for an epic story different from the usual fantasy, an excellent example of branching, a post-nuclear apocalyptic tale, or just an exciting and beautifully written story that will keep him engaged for quite a while, I recommend this storygame.
If you're one of those suckers who reads reviews before he reads stories, stop. Don't read anymore reviews. This is time you could spend reading Ground Zero.

I've made it no secret on this site in my earlier years that I absolutely love this story. But back then I didn't look at things critically, if I liked something then it was perfect and anyone who shit on it was a fuckwit, so last night I decided to read through the four (well, five counting an unofficial one) major paths and see if my nostalgia held up. I've gotta say, it does.


Let's start with the writing and the story. I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic games, and this doesn't disappoint with its tale of the story of one man and his life after nuclear detonation. Depending on just a single choice (which branches out into another choice depending on what you choose, but still), you can take five different paths to five wildly different endings, and all the other endings on the way. Par the course, there's a few typos and grammar mistakes, but those don't really affect the overall quality of the story.

Aside from the minor errors, the writing is top notch and has a unique flare in its visceral style. EndMaster knows how to write extremely well without sounding like a snobby scholar-type, but rather like a regular old Joe that just so happened to major in creative writing. I especially liked the hints to the other paths you could've taken, IE mentions of the Combine in the public shelter, mutant, and Wasteland Bastard paths, when one path has you join what would eventually become the Combine (and being able to squash the Combine before they have the chance to become the tyrants they are), while the unofficial 'Wasteland Bastard' path ends with you finding a way into an unused private shelter when, if you read through a small branch early on in the path, you would've discovered it belonged to a family you meet (whereas you killed them before they could tell you in the main path).

I touched on it above but didn't really dig too deep into it, but this story has so many branches it puts a redwood to shame. Tons of choices, tons of branches, (be they quick 'you chose the wrong choice, time to die' or 'continue your story for quite a bit longer') and I enjoyed the fact that not all the choices that lead to an end game link on the next page are deaths and give a sense of the adventure continuing after that. One thing I will say is that I was disappointed in the lack of a 'road warrior' path, that is being an unaffiliated wandering adventurer, and the lack of a path which allowed you to join the cyborg faction whose name escapes me at the moment. Still, the paths provided were pretty damn sweet, so these are more things I would've liked to see than things that the game needs.

And now, gushing time.

Dude, wasn't it sweet when you just shoot that bastard Elliot in the public shelter path? Just be like, "fuck you motherfucker, you ain't gonna do some dystopia shit on my watch!"
Man, it was so fucking cool when you throw Owen off the roof when you meet him again in the mutant path, haha, that's what you get for going insane because I threw you out of your shelter you fucktard!
Wasn't it the bomb when you killed that bastard Alex in the soldier path? I made the mistake of forgiving you once shitlicker, I ain't forgiving you again!

And now here are my favorite paths:

3. Private Shelter path (I'm a sucker for human-robot/AI romances, and this one didn't disappoint. Plus it proves End can still do a compelling story without including a shitload of characters. The branch where you interact with the other people in the shelters also proved to be an interesting little character-driven thriller, which mostly took place across computer screens, which is also a telling achievement of his storytelling ability)
2. Soldier path (IMHO the 'best' path for the story, as you squash the Combine and the cyborg peeps without them getting the chance to get too bad, you restore a sense of order and government to the wasteland, and the epilogue featuring your descendant telling a story about your exploits in a bar was perfect)
1. Wasteland Bastard (Oh. My. God. This is the cruelest, most demented, and sickening path in the story... And I LOVE IT. You REALLY get to feel like a depraved bastard in this path, and then you have it all catch up to you and, depending on your interpretation, kill yourself out of guilt or be killed by a mutant bounty hunter. In the end it shows that you, the player, did this just to see how fucked up you could get, and that's exactly the same reason the protagonist did it)


So, in the end, is it the flawless masterwork I thought it was? No. But overall, this story, though flawed, is still a masterpiece of interactive fiction and my favorite story out of all of EndMaster's works. Forever and always, this will be an 8/8 for me.

The last time I left a comment on Ground Zero was a very long time ago. At that time I had only played through this storygame once, and whilst I hadn't died immediately, I wasn't exactly close to getting an epilogue. To paraphrase myself in this comment, I said that I would have liked more choice in the protagonist's actions. Looking back, I see that not only was I being unfair, but I didn't understand at all what makes this game great.

Since then, I have played through every page and discovered all the wonder and intrigue this deep, rich world has to offer. As is often the case with EndMaster's stories, it is the characters and plot which are most memorable. It is amazingly satisfying to see how your choices affect not only your own character, but other characters and even the world around you, in believable, really interesting ways. Not only that, but I was treated to a whole giant spider-web of such delicious stories, branching off in many directions, even when you think you've finished it all. Not one of these tales, on any page, did I find boring or dull. All the endings were a fun read and the epilogues provided good closure, with (most of them) giving us a glimpse into the life of your descendants. In this aspect - this incredible use of interactive fiction in its most basic form - Ground Zero is second only to Eternal.

I always find it strange when people complain about the linearity or lack of choices in an EndMaster game. Do they even know what linearity means? This thing branches like a motherfucker; it's anything but linear. I concede that there are less choices insomuch as there are probably less combinations due to lack of variables and scripting, but when you have such story-driven and meaningful choices that completely change the direction of the plot, the choices in Ground Zero are better, I would say. Yes, it means you don't control your character as much, but the protagonist is a (metaphorically) real person with his own opinions, feelings and motives. It allows for a much more complex and fascinating main character than if the player could decide every single little action.

Thank you, EndMaster, for writing such an epic tale that kept me entertained for hours on end. It was one of the first storygames I played on this website and it certainly left a fantastic impression. If it wasn't for Ground Zero, I might not have stuck around on CYS. Thank Dendrin I din't stumble upon Warrior Cats fanfic before reading this beauty.

First off HOLY SHIT MAN. This is like reading a real book, props to you honestly you should become a real writer. The story was amazing my first play through was when you buy the bunker and I loved that part but was disappointing by the end and you just walk out of the bunker with a messed up and inaccurate map. I would like to know what happens whether that be another book with that story line or even an extension that was so fun i would do it again. I thought that was the only real ending then we actually get to go into the wasteland and try to rebuild civilization it is amazing! The twists and turns and the loss of your lover the one that saved you in the first place just gave me chills. Then you are deciding whether on not to kill your self and you wined up having sex with the person you saved at the barn with the cult. She tells you that is not what your lover wanted and you should keep fighting for her. Now you own AA and you are the founder and find out the women you had sex with had a child! But sadly she died and now you have to look after your new daughter. Fast forward 10 years and she is helping you through a city of mutants. Eventually you pass and you get to join your lover but you get to see through the eyes of your grand children. Dude if you made it this far thanks for reading this but i was just blown away from how good this story is. I am being serious I would buy this book. My only complaint was like 3 or 4 spelling errors but other than that it was amazing seriously dude great job. :)

I love this game, It brings the tone of the dark humor of dystopian titles and fallout or wasteland games. It can be really long but the pace keeps a very fluid flow that gives dynamism.

My criticism is mostly character personality is pretty grey and common, even if I think it was designed that way to an emphasis on the idea character was an average looser previous the events.

This is the first story I ever read/played on this site when I was younger, I really enjoyed it then and I enjoy it now. Although my ending this time was definitely more disappointing but that was my own fault lol. Last time I remember killing Miranda and leaving the vault to find Rockstargril, which I imagine is the best ending right? This time I ended up slowly starving to death though.

The first time I played this game years ago, I played it safe with the bomb shelter at the start. It was quite a ride and I was able to reach what I think had to be one of the best endings in the game. I figured I probably wouldn't be able to top it with another play-through so I put it down for a while and celebrated the win. I decided to try again, while living fast this time, and probably found the quickest death after the orgy-fest. 10/10 will play again.

This is one of, if not the best science fiction storygames on the site. I love the amount of choices and paths given through the story, and the dark humor just blends so perfectly. I can't really find anything to criticize. Every epilogue ended in a satisfying way, and never left me asking questions or sitting confused. My only possible complaint would be on the Wasteland Bastard path.

I feel like that should be included as an epilogue path, judging by how long and intuitive it was. Even with the hitman killing you at the end, it would feel a lot more like an ending if it was an official epilogue (just my opinion). My favorite path would have to be the mutant path. It was just so cool how the different societies developed and battled, and how everything was described in such insane detail.All in all, I love this story so much, easily in my top 5 favorites. Great work EndMaster on this amazing piece of art.

A fun and well-executed story with a lot of replay value. I realize that after 3 or 4 play-throughs I have still only just scratched the surface, but I will speak on what I experienced anyway:

The Good:
Interesting characters, particularly the protagonist. I loved that the main character had a personality (loner, asshole, techie). In some games the player character is left as a blank slate for player's decisions, but I think that is a mistake.
The pacing is excellent and the actions of the plot are interesting and fully-developed.
The decisions are important and you definitely feel that you are impacting the plot.

Needs Improvement:
The dialogue is a little too on-the-nose. Characters should very rarely say precisely what they are thinking
The descriptions are a bit lacking. I see that you were trying to move the plot along without getting bogged down, but it is important to rember to SHOW the readers what is happening, not just TELL them. Although the plot was interesting, I did not quite feel IMMERSED by it. Don't say "He built a cult of personality," show me. Don't say "the shelter fell into disrepair," show me.
I did not think the use of profanity was effective. I understand you were trying to increase the colloquial feel of the dialogue, but it felt hollow. Reducing the amount of profanity will increase the reader's response to it when it IS used.

Overall it was a great read and a fun experience. I look forward to coming back to it numerous times in the future

Felt like playing through an abridged version of Fallout, some dialogue read a little bit awkward but overall I enjoyed the stories.

The MC is kind of a dick and kind of came across as getting too conveniently lucky with women, but I did like that he was fairly consistent based on his experiences during the various plotlines.

This story has been nothing but grossly homophobic.

In almost every story branch, a gay character is either severally murdered, or is the main villain.

The company in the story is extremely homophobic. I could have excused that, because it made sense to the plot. But killing gay characters, just to kill them. Or making them out to be evil murderers, became too much. I really wouldn't ever read this story again, or anything else from this writer.

I went through the genocide route, and I feel as the amount of time, effort, and choices made on this game was so high, and insane, I was honestly made. While detail was very nice, I wish in the town of Jim's Reapers, there was a choice to stay, or at least a choice to not go roam the streets like a serial killer. The first part really inspired me for a section in my story I am currently working on. I can say one thing though, this story is anything but linear. I just wish you had a bit more control of the person on the genocide route.

Perhaps the greatest game I have played this far here. Multiple story branches taking you down wildly varied paths, excellent writing, solid but not quite perfect dialog, characters who for the most part act true to their nature and not as plot devices, and more. The background characters show distinct lives and developments which can differ greatly based on what they've experienced through your choices, but tend to stay true to their cores. Humor, tension, a sense of the unknown and choices that don't always have obvious or imediate outcomes. I was never asked to "DODGE" which is a nice plus, although there was some obligatory hamfisted sex which given the setting was excusable. The classic female wish fulfillment device was also present but not over done. This was a solid work and I am glad I took the time to (I think) find all the endings.

Interesting and relatively well written. The sex and relationship components seemed to be the standard teenage wish fulfillment common to sci-fi/fantasy, and par for the course a bit awkward and artificial. They weren't nearly as extreme as many works though, and post apocalyptic fiction almost requires a sexual component, so I didn't find those elements too detrimental. Overall an interesting read with good choices that left me wondering and wanting to find out what came next.

I just read the ending with the AI and must say that I am very impressed, not many story would go this way and I must say that I am very happy this one did. I found the ending very nice and will continue to read the story with different choices (even though this will be probably my favorite ending). You have really created something great with this story and I hope this review shows you how gratefull people are for people like you and your work.

Suicide, the only way, I shoot myself, nothing else goes through my head. Except this: I know what I must do, Miranda is the enemy, to break the loop, I must stop her, And as I pull the trigger, I am back in bed, back where I started.

revenge was certainly not sweet, I fail to realise why I hated Shadow so much, but I do. I tell myself he isn't the real enemy just as many times as I tell myself "i was right". And as I die after my miserable days alone, I remember something. something that will certainly change my next path, I am stuck in this loop untill I suceed to save someone, and that someone is Rockerchick. Then I die, alone, but knowing I will come back untill I suceed.

I ended up partying, like there was no tommarow, turns out there wasn't. I finaly got my girl, at least I acheived that in life. I am looking into the horizon, I am at peace with myself. I have acomplished things that may not change the world in these last few days, but have made an impact on myself. I have been a free spirit, for these last few days, and I feel like nothing can shake me. As I look at her for the last time, I wonder if we could've been together had things been different.

I was a complete sycopath, my life ended with someone shooting me after hiding in a bunker, his answer was "because you could" But, I know the truth, I did it...because I wanted to survive. I did it because the world was savage and chaotic, and killing seemed the only way. I tried to make it right by helping civalasation unfold again, but I had already created a monster, I was a monster. I'm not sure what I could've become, (other than dead) but I tried my best to survive, and in the end, I failed, in the end I realy just commited suicide. I failed in my quest to live, and created a monster of myself, I lived with a motto, "Never trust anyone" I broke it a few times, and that led me on this path, or maybe following it did. I don't know, I'll never know. I did horible things, and the last thought as I leave this world... "I am a monster, nothing I did really mattered in the long run"... but, perhaps, this is a lie, perhapes my life wasn't pointless, maybe along the line, I did something right, maybe...just, maybe. In another life, I'll follow this motto, I'll see what happens, in a paralel universe, I'll remind myself-The monster I have become

So deep! I love this, I have had many different endings. I'm going to find all of them, and replay the ones I have, leaving deep messages like this :D enjoy, I love stories, reading them and telling them.

This story won me over in a way I never expected. In most CYOA games, I got through by placing myself in the character's shoes and making the choices I would. I found that to be a wholly unfulfilling experience with this game because the character wasn't much like me at all. I stopped thinking "Can't win them all."

Then for some unexplainable reason I decided to give it another try. That's when it hit me. This story isn't amazing because it relates to you. This is a story that you as the reader get to tweak. The author wrote a compelling story with compelling characters and gave you as the reader the option to "what if" at any given number of points. Bravo for making a story truly interactive as a reader.

This is so far the best gamebook I have played. Its vastly superior to all the ones that are on the appstore that I have tried for free or paid for. My favourite storyline is hands down the Dominion one. I encourage the author to introduce more literary (read some classics like Dorian´s Gray Portrait) and RPG complexity (stats, percentage of morality or karma system, perks and items) in this or upcoming creations and start asking for money. I´d pay.

This was the first story I read on the site, and its really cultivated both my interest and curiosity in this type of storytelling.

Endmaster has done an excellent job in character development. Even on the different multitude of arms of this adventure the character is still true to his own nature. I really liked that. By allowing the character to die, he is able to avoid horrible character changing deus ex machina scenarios that drive us all crazy.

I've made an account here after this experience and am excited to do more reading and recreation on this site.

Ground Zero is inventive, exciting, unpredictable, well-characterized, thought-provoking, and entertaining. I would give it 9.5/10 if not for one thing: The GODAWFUL ENGLISH. Incorrect word use, run-on sentences, changing tenses, redundancy, bad punctuation, and clunky wording distract and detract from almost every page. I admit I'm a grammar Nazi, but this story looks like the author did no proofreading whatsoever. (I mean, come on, at least keep the characters' names straight. Is it Jack or Jake?) It's a shame this wasn't edited properly (or possibly at all) because it could be a rough draft of something great.

Gosh, Where do I start? The mutant campaign is definitely the best ending. It raises real questions of morality. Are the mutants wrong for conquering the humans? They obviously have a superior society, but that's the same argument that the British used to commit numerous genocides.

The question that is never answered is: are humans biologically more predisposed to violence then their mutant counterparts?

I wish that a peaceful solution could be established, but honestly I don't know how that could happen. Weighing the collapse of your civilization in one hand and the destruction of another sentient species in another is a moralistic choice that I'm not prepared to make.

But I suppose I'm prejudice. If I were facing an army of aggressive, manipulative, and inventive mutants who were hell bent on exterminating me I would probably kill them. I would at least try diplomacy first though.

I just wish that my mutant family wasn't so unstable. With their support I could probably make peace work. What the heck does my wife have against humans anyway?

It's a nice story it just doesn't really make sense how different paths mean different events happening in the world. Like if I take the shelter, the bomb actually didn't go off. If I go to the hospital, the bomb then goes off.

This was my first story on this site and I found it very enjoyable, I love the variety and the writing is brilliant, the scenarios in the community shelter are very believable and it's very fulfilling to live a long happy life. This story covers a range of emotions and I felt for and with and for the characters. 8/8 all around, brilliant start for new 'players'.

I've recently started playing a popular and well-known role playing adventure game with a group of friends, and in between campaigns, I find myself fiending for adventure! That's how I've come to where I am now -- stumbling upon this website, and choosing Ground Zero as my first choose-your-own-story sort of dealie. I'm not really sure what to expect from these, so please only take my comments with a grain of salt.

I love cussing. I swear (pun intended), it releases endorphin's when I swear -- it must. Cussing feels great. However, I'm not a huge fan with the over usage of it. Or, at least, swearing that isn't in the right place and time. At times, I felt uncomfortable with how awkward the swearing was at times in Ground Zero. Sometimes, it was totally permissible, but at most points I felt some cringes surfacing up. This is really only my biggest complaint with this adventure.

Suffice it to say, I was thoroughly entertained. I've read through – played through, what have you – twice now and plan to do so again after finishing up these comments. I'm a huge fan of the post-apocalyptic genre, so Ground Zero is fun and thought through well.

With lots of intense parts, which kept me on the edge of my seat, and realistic dialogue, this is probably the best "storygame" I've read!

I'm disappointed that human beings are so predictable. I'd hoped that I'd continue gaining resources first by killing the couple then by winning the trust of the family so we could look out for each other. I would've liked an option to let the family stay and formed a group. To be fair I got what was coming to me. Makes me wonder if bill would've changed his mind.

I personally felt the protagonist was lacking in choice as in he didn't have many options or actions to choose from and that it was too short (unless I'm just ignorant or something because I only played through it once but I didn't really get an epilogue I was expecting (unless it wasn't an epilogue at all) I kinda just left the shelter and... Boom the end, but then again it has a large amount of potential it just needs some more work/content put into it and interesting topic by the way good choice.)

Very well put together. It was engaging and immersive. I do think there could've been more options because the story felt quite linear. It was black and white in terms of which choices would kill you and which choices would lead to your survival. However, I am very satisfied with the 75mins that I pumped into this. Although I died, I feel I am doing the story justice by not returning to find a better ending.

At first, when i bought a shelter and continued on them paths, I disregarded it as pointless as the experimental shelter is effectively a dead end. However, I tried the other main path, without buying a shelter, and I realised just how more in depth this game was than i originally thought. A true masterpiece.

I throughly enjoyed this story. The depth, all the different paths to could take... I am elated that I found this story. I especially enjoyed the New Haven path and good ending, I personally think that one was the best, although the one with Eliza and your character is a heartwarming close second. It's amazing what you can find with Google and being bored hahaha. I recall reading choose your story works in the past and I decided to find some. Found this website and Ground Zeros was on the front page. And now I'm here :) Keep doing what you're doing!

Very enjoyable! Obviously a lot of time and effort was made to produce this story as it is very in depth and has many possible diverse storylines to follow. This is the first 'choose your story' that I've read and am pleasantly surprised by the quality. Apart from the foul language (overused IMHO), and the completely psychopathic path one can follow (which allow for a disturbing, extremely sadistic, violent choices and storyline), this story is very entertaining and well written.

For starters, this story made me cry. It was a gigantic emotional roller coaster! Every word was placed perfectly, and thought through quite well! When writing, one of the hardest things to do is create dialogue that doesn't ruin the story, and the author managed to do just that.

This was my second time playing this game, and I spent maybe 2 hours on it before I got one of the 4 endings. (Ending #2, I believe) In the beginning, you may feel as if it is a waste of time, but this story is the best I have played in a while. I just LOVE the character development in this game! It definitely added the final touch!

Second time I've gotten an epilogue, but the first I've been logged in to leave my thoughts on it.

Ground Zero is a good read. Like most of Endmaster's stories it offers several entirely different, but equally enjoyable main paths rooted in the same setting. At the end it just feels as though you've finished a good book. The beauty of CYS is that the first end of a good work is just the beginning of the enjoyment you can get out of it. If you haven't read this, or any of the other great stories on the site I'd recommend you get started.

Thank you Endmaster for your excellent storytelling, and world building. I probably haven't said anything that hasn't been said a million times before, but it's no less true.

Wow this story is great! First time I played it I got an epilogue, and man I was proud of that. I loved the story, and I felt like the pros and cons were very well balanced. If something bad happens, you can almost be sure that something good comes with it. I think the best way to play these games is to stick with your decisions no matter how bad it may seem. A couple times I went back because I chose a decision that didn't agree with my gut, but for the most time my instincts proved correct. Just do what you believe to be right and it'll work out ok.
-- Reelru on 1/10/2016 7:12:13 PM with a score of 0
It's good. There are quite a few different story lines you can experience, which make your choices (especially in the beginning) seem really meaningful. It's definitely worthwhile playing through this a couple times to read the other stories.

However, for a game so focused on writing, there are quite a few grammatical errors, even a few spelling ones. The syntax is often rather clunky too, and there are many cases of run-on sentences and improper punctuation. A lot of the dialogue feels a little awkward as well at times, though it's not the worst. Proofreading and fixing these errors would be what changes my rating of this from a 6/8 to an 8/8.

First playthrough was quite enjoyable. The choices in Ground Zero are weighted much more than most games, and the copious branching paths have made replaying it irresistible. I love the influences from Fallout and the general plausibility of the story. As for the role we assume at the center of this game, I appreciated the personality itself but longed for more choice in whether to be antisocial or more receptive of others. Overall, Ground Zero is a complete game. It's writing, especially the introduction and various endings, blend a serious tone without sacrificing reader enjoyment. There are just the right amount of questions left unanswered, and this provokes the imagination to complete the tale. More than worthy of everyone's time and appreciation, this is a story game of rare, high quality.

Brought tears to my eyes at times. A wonderful, compelling story where your choices make a huge difference in the ending. Loved it, loved the characters, but had to admit I was extremely sad as my protagonist grew alone once more as his wife and the people he grew old with died off.

I've only taken one route so far, the Experimental Shelter route, and I'm just a little surprised at where it ended. It seemed prime for another "arc" so to speak where you journey to the other shelter, and I was just a little let down that it didn't continue. However, I know there is MUCH more to experience, and will surly check back later to see what else this story has to offer.

I've never wanted to replay a storygame as many times as I have this one. Usually I'm content finding one 'good' ending, but this one changes so dramatically based on what you do at certain points (mostly the beginning) and yet easter eggs the paths that could have been taken so well that it's hard to just stop playing it through to the various Epilogue Endings.

For some reason, I always get what I imagine to be the worst/most gruesome ending whenever I play one of your games. For example, on this one, I ended up dying in a bunker, which I was trapped in, after living a life of putting skulls on stakes, raping women, killing children, joining gangs, and then killing leader of said gang. At least, I think that's how it went. I spent hours getting other endings. Can't remember which game it was I ended up shooting up the school in. Anyway, great game. I played it for hours, because I wanted to see how many endings I could find.

I've played Ground Zero many times since I first discovered it last year. I had never realized this whole other story was here; so far i've played both Shelter stories (Community and private)and once on the surface as the crazed maniac. While the Eliza storyline in the shelter was my favorite, this one is amazing. It's lengthy, entertaining, and just-- I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, but i absolutely loved it.

What a fantastic story. I didn't get a full appreciation until the third time through, when I discovered that some of the paths go down entirely different story arcs and don't actually seem to cross - unless I've been dying too early to find those parts?!

I am somewhat new to choose your own story books, but this is one of the most amazing experiences in reading I have ever had, I loved the book so much I took up the task of trying out every single ending (which is insanely worth it). This story made me think "what a stupid death" at sometimes, yet many ones made me want to cry out of either joy or sadness (all in a good way). To put it simply this story has amazed me and would recommend it to anyone who can read (except for maybe younger kids due to heavier topics). :'):'):'):'):')

-- Bs on 5/19/2015 4:22:39 AM with a score of 0
Pretty stellar CYOA; well-fleshed story archs and a dark personality to boot, definitely made with a lot of care.

The writing and grammar won't make you shed tears, but it's still good enough to the point where it'll get genuine emotional responses from you - and it does a great job of setting the stage for whatever mood it wants to get across.

My one complaint is that the protagonist is an absolute ass in almost every rendition, and a totally anti-social one at that: definitely felt a bit distanced, as a gay male, over the lack of choice as far as some of the story archs took towards the protagonist making relationships with female characters or treating gay characters in the story. I would've appreciated some choice on not being a passive-aggressive, condescending dick to people in general conversation too: you can't really get around it.

Aside from that, a fairly-stellar experience that had me going back to see all the different endings. Great work!

Brilliant. Detailed. Really plays on some common fears of the end of the world. Reminiscent of Fallout and other apocalyptic games/films/books.

I lived 10 years, but it came to a depressing end... About to try again and hope for something a little happier. Wonderful story and characters. I was there for a moment.

This was an awesome game! I spent several hours exploring the different paths, and eventually reaching the epilogue was exciting. All in all, the story was well written no matter what decisions you made, and wasn't one of those games that only felt complete if you followed the intended path. One note: I don't believe the game warranted an 8/8 rating for length; Maybe more like a 6.

beautifully deep story....or would I say game?

It can start as a choose your own path book, but then it becomes deeper, a whole lot deeper. It throws you into a moral pit and expects you to come back up, you'll find yourself living in vaults, engaging in diplomacy, establishing cities, fighting for your life and barely struggling to survive, or becoming a tyrant....the possibilities are endless

But then, you could suddenly die due to your stupidity, your choices also affect the personality of your character.

EndMaster, you are honestly one of the greatest story-tellers on the planet. On par with Stephen King and Harper Lee. Although Ground Zero could use a little proof-reading (typos could sometimes interfere with the atmosphere of the tale), the main idea and story-line is one of the best ones I've read in a long time. Thank you, kind sir, for bestowing upon us this gift.

I find the story kind of depressing. I mean, when you have to make important decisions (ex: Picking Elliot or Ron) you can't pick, just able to pick if you vote or not. What the hell? Many storylines lead to death of you, and thats kinda sad. Good game, though, either way.

Perfect Game! Lol it's kinda unrealistic for the viruses but for other reasons it's awesome! Like the different endings, as you die 75% of the time. Plays around with your brain as well like if you play to get all endings... You die, you find your last friend and you die you die you die die die die party and die. Perfect crude humor included as well. Nice job on that as well as the derpy photos

This was meaningful, massive, deep, how much can you say about a Fallout-like story. It's a story that actually makes me feel complete but also sad when the character finishes the Community Vault in the good ending after many years, it made me want to salute the frikkin'character even if Nina died and he had might say that the story had so much choices and meanings that it made me feel deep and reflective...

The story definitely seems to be interesting but as is a problem with characters in many books (or it may just be because of events during time skips) they do seem to act very slightly cheesy sometimes, but other wise the story is quite good. (The rating is because the story progresses a tad to fast and I sometimes find my eyes skipping over a few lines, and having zero clue whats going on, not really the authors fault, but something that could be improved.)

I'm not sure why you think I'm pissed off at you Corvo.

Unless you're talking about listing hints, which doesn't mean anything to me since it isn't the first time somebody has done it in the comments section, in fact I've done it myself a few times for this very story.

I just got the other 3 epilogues. 'Epilogue 1' really surprised me. Completely based off of romance. Nice.

Btw, I'm gonna give a hint.

'Epilogue 4' is attained by going to the city.

'Epilogue 3' is attained by going to work.

'Epilogue 2' is attained by going to the community shelter.

And 'Epilogue 1' is attained by going to the special shelter.

I'm sorry, Endmaster, if I pissed you off, but I had a pretty damn hard time getting 'Epilogue 1', so I just wanted to throw some hints out there.
-- Corvo on 9/27/2014 12:57:56 PM with a score of 0
Myyy god.

After I read Necromancer (Which, in my opinion, is the best story-game here), I was rather... Skeptical about this story, seeing as how Necromancer had you delve in-to the realistic characters and feel proud when you successfully changed the surroundings around you... Save, this was like in opposite order. The epic scale was also there, and it had me waste 4 hours just to get to the 'Epilogue 3'. I still haven't played the others epilogues, but my god.

As far as I could see, there were hardly ANY grammatical, or spelling errors. There was only, on average, one error per 2 pages, which I'd say is about 1 in every thousand words. Pretty damn impressive.

You also have things that simply pop out, and surprise you in various ways. Such as... Nah, I'm not gonna spoil it, but there were a couple things in there that got me, in the 'Epilogue 3' path alone.

Over-all, 8/8, would buy this on the iTunes store. You should try it, bro. And, now that I've tasted the great flavor this story had to offer, I'm gonna check some others... Hope they're just as epic.

I think the writing was fantastic, and the variety of choices and the extremely varying paths the story can take took a lot of work, I can tell. My only gripe is the main character. It seems like (at least in the routes I played through) he's a massive asshole, even where he has no cause to be. And I have no problem with swearing in stories; I've used it in plenty of my own, but I feel like there was a swear every other sentence in this story, which for me, is pushing it a bit, almost to the point of disturbance. But that's my only gripe. The positives far outweigh the negatives in this story, so fantastic job.

Interesting story. The main character's set and self-serving personality was both appropriate and different. As usual, now that I've found one epilogue, I'll have to return to the apocalypse to find the others-the mark of a talented author and solid writing. Well done! Thanks!

got about 3 choices in before the main character raped a girl. oh, but don't worry, she ended up "liking it." i don't care that it's fictional, there's really no situation where that line of thinking is acceptable. no thanks. excuse me while i vomit all over the writer's delusions. can't fathom why this is one of the sites top stories

I liked the multiple endings for the choices you made at the beginning. It could have used a lot more choices though-there was a lot of text and not as much actions you could do (being in the shelter opened slightly more choices.)

Harry may have personally annoyed me but that may have been what you were going for with his character. By the way, I really enjoyed the special shelter story line. It was simply fantastic. I loved how the characters were living in seperate areas and talked through some sort of chat room. It was very interesting and cool! Just like this game.

ye have an amazing game here! the "chat room" speech should've been spaced out between each person's individual comments to make it easier to read & easier on the person's eyes, & it would certainly help to get the choice of which options to take into the special shelter & to have an armory in it with the choice of what to take from it if going outside (& this can also lead to advancing the storyline beyond the shelter), & it would've been better to have more in depth interactions (& quantity of them) between the other "chat room" people. other than this, AMAZING storyline & after I finished it felt like a great accomplishment & having the feeling of just finishing a long epic story that spans lifetimes in a small story (very few can make a story that becomes epic & this certainly has become such).

Wow!!!! This game is brilliant!! I don't understand how the author was able to create so many differnt storylines and twists, but every choice has a consequence and each time the story plays out differently. I've Been playing for about an hour now, restarting the game each time I reach the end, and each time I make a different decision, the events that follow continue to surprise me and keep me interested. It has happy, sad, scary and sweet/feel-good endings and twists, and I am in awe of this game and the author who has such a creative and vivid imagination. I thought that "The Walking Dead" game was amazing, but it has nothing on this game. I've only played out about 20 scenarios and there are still a couple more that I haven't tried. Will be doing that for the rest of the night :) Thank you for this game!!!!

Over all, after playing the game several times over time, I'd have to give this a 6. It's a lot of fun, and well worth the time spent on it, but there are too many endings that could have been better. So many things are left undone, and in the end, you really only have a few choices to make during each scene. Sure, it branches out a lot over-all, but when you only have so many options. It could have been much, much bigger than it was.

Woah I just got all 4 epilouges! I give you a 5 just for the length and apparent hard work put into this. But in all seriousness this was an amazing story. Though some of the deaths seemed to occur through random "accidents" or coincidences, it really only needed to follow the simple logic; pussy out now, you're going to pay for it in the future. And LOGIC!

It was a very good game with choices that felt meaningful. It was very interesting to see how the situation changed and developed over the course of years.
However, I did sometimes feel that the actions of the main character were forced, such as when he votes for Ron or when he shoots himself in one ending. It would have been nice to have some sort of choice in these situations.

Which one didn't you get? I'll give a general guide since I'm not sure which one you're trying to find.

One is in the Experimental Shelter (Turn off the net and talk to someone much closer)
One is in the Community Shelter (Develop more of a community spirit)
One is in the Compound (Stick with Marina and eventually become more of a leader)
One is in the City (Head to the city and embrace mutant destiny)
-- EndMaster on 10/22/2013 8:10:12 PM with a score of 0
Great game overall. But some of the choices end up leading you to die without any warning whatsoever. It's feels like you just need to be lucky to end up picking the right one.
Also sometime the cusing seems a bit too much.
Anyway so far I've finished 3 of the 4 endings but I can't seem to find the last one. Could someone give me some sort of hint or clue to get all the epilogues pls Ty. :D

Really well thought out storyline. I've gone through every possible path. I really like how the stories fit into each other. The reuse of characters, like Damon the thug. All the epilogues really give you a sense of closure on that particular story arc. By far the best story I've read so far.

I like the long perspective, and I like how many different personalities the same person can develope into is shown. Great potential for heroism, villainy, and leadership all wrapped up in one package.

Personally I enjoy the heroism most, but each perspective is very well done, and there's multiple routes for all tastes.

Great game, once again, Endmaster has risen to the occasion, and preformed superbly.
Noticeably not as many options with this one compared to Eternal...
(although he could have made this one first, not sure) I managed to find 3 of the four endings, and have to say I am slightly sad that I wasnt able to get an ending for both the Special Bunker or for the Insane murderer/GangLeader... Which is a shame, but I guess the endings main theme is to see what impact you left on the world through your offspring... *sigh*
My first play through ended up with me heading out to meet my fellow survivor in a specialized bunker.... Like how open ended everything was, although when playing I felt that it was more than just a little inspired by the Fallout series... not that that's bad or anything, just an observation. (although the pictures were nice!)
Had to rate it slightly lower than Eternal for the Endings...

Very good story. It takes a couple questionable turns, but all-in-all it was a fun ride! The character dialogue, especially in the beginning, is very real. It made me feel as if I was actually reading a conversation between two very real people. Without spoiling anything, after the exposition, the characters become pretty confined. And I mean that literally. I found myself wishing for more of an adventure, but I highly recommend this story.

The writing was interesting, and the story overall was good; the problem is that too much of the story wasn't my choice. Too much of the story just 'happened' without my having a say-so in how or why I would do something. An example: I ended up helping the family with the broken leg and left when threatened. I, personally, would have lied and come back to kill them or even would have liked to head to the city or something other than "Leave" or "Stay".

Got epilogue 3. First time I played, I wasn't that impressed but after being able to actually get somewhere (damn my humanity and conscience) it is really enjoyable and lengthy. Actually what I liked most was that gradually the focus shifted from survival if you so choose, to what you so choose. Definitely love the dynamic feel to the story since a lot are "railroaded"

Originally I gave this a six. Post-apocalyptic stories aren't really my thing, so to speak, and the paths I originally took didn't really do much for me. As some people pointed out, your character can be quite the jerk. However, I don't see that as a flaw in the writing so much as it just isn't my personal tastes. The writing, as for all your games, is exemplary (barring the few technical mistakes here and there). While I don't LIKE a lot of swearing, it really does make sense for the time and situation, and I really get the impression you're not walking on eggshells for anyone. I can respect that, even if I personally don't swear and hate being sword at in reality.

Anyhow, I finally got the 'Eliza' ending, and it was beautiful. And I think that's what I love about your works. You present these gritty worlds with horrible people and events in them, and hard choices, but through it all, you still have this magnificent portrayal of beauty and an odd sense of justice also. So, Bravo, Bravo!

Quite good, this. I wouldv've liked a bit more choice than what was offered, but I get that it was a story-centric game. Still, the variety was certainly there so it remained interesting and entertaining, though I didn't really understand the characters motivation for being such an asshole at the beginning. Perhaps with a little back story, but I didn't and couldn't have written something with this much charm and variety. Congrats to the writer.

Now granted I didn't do this straight through but still. This series is very well written and strangely enough does have many true different paths for the different people. My first true ending after about three deaths was amazing. This is a novel within novels and takes a great deal of time to enjoy all of its points, but is definitely worth it.

This is one of the first games I've played on this site, but definitely the best so far. I like the fact your choices require sensible, logical decision making. It is important that even poor decisions often lead to further choice rather than instant death.
It also makes a change to be able to have your own place and ride out a lot of the trouble, rather than forcing you to constantly wander aimlessly. Nice story game! 8/8

Beautiful, raw, believable. This story made me want to survive, not as a means of beating the game, but because I felt it was real. It gives a sense of immersion the degree of which I had yet to encounter on this website. I was able to get Epilogue 2 on my first run, and you can bet that I'll be back to find a few others. Your focus on storytelling is something I very much admire, you don't let gadgets and goofy systems distract from the sheer magnitude and cohesiveness of the story you've crafted. My only complaint was the frequent Jack/Jake switching which I assume is an oversight. I'll assert this again and again: astounding from the very first page.

I picked this up thinking it would be a simple post-apocalyptic survival story. After checking almost every single page could find, I can now compare my previous idea to saying that the world is about four feet in diameter. This story is infinitely expanding and every option is brimming with excitement that defines the human psyche as in-depth as you can get. The beginning is light and humorous, the middle provides tension and edge-of-your-seat thrilling suspense, and the ending (or at least the only epilogue I managed to find) actually made me cry. This story is so flawlessly written that it has made me question almost everything I have come to know about the literary world. My only major complaint is that the community shelter's story was fairly weak in my opinion; the special shelter storyline provided everything that makes me rate this a flawless 8 out of 8. I would rate this higher if I could. The unforgettable characters and their exploits will stay with me forever, and I cannot thank EndMaster enough for introducing me to them. Bravo.

This is one of, if not THE best CYOA games that i ever played.I like how it was based off Fallout, but with the author's unique elements, like The Combine, and Cybernetic Evoluton, or whatever it's called.

I killed leon because if I hadn't he would have killed us all. It was because of me we found the village! Even in my death I served the colony, ending their dependence on the shelter. Now they fear me, but in the future, historians will praise me! I am not a dictator, but a savoir! ALL HAIL ME!!!!! My only regret is that I'll never know if pratchett survived.

I finally found a second epilogue, but when I looked at the title of the page it was 'epilogue 4'. 4!

Anyway, it has an interesting plot and is difficult enough to be entertaining, with writing good enough to keep my brain from exploding from the sheer volume of text (I'm going to have to postpone the hunt for the other eplogues because finding 2 in a row has incapacitated me). All in all, very fun - and worth the enormous amount of time I sunk into it. A particularly entertaining game is trying to spot, before choosing, the points which subsequently open up an entire vista of story.

The only criticism I had (and it may not even be valid, having not gotten every epilogue yet) is that I would have liked to have been more involved with the Combine or the Cyborgs, and to have participated more in the conflict.

I never really comment on anything. But after reading this story I have felt compelled to. The funniest thing is on my first try I ended up taking part in the work orgy and dying early doors! I can literally picture every scenario as you write it so well. My favourite ending was the one with Alex!!! I really hate that guy!!! The mutant king was inspiring!! The loneliness of the special shelter. And the feelgood new haven. You are an extremely talented and visionary guy. And I look forward to reading your other material. Truly awesome.

I thought it was really good with obvious inspiration taken from fallout lol But the one thing I would say... I'm not sure I agree with where the story ended, given my choices... I mean... It would be typical of a fallout-esc feature to enable you to do things your way and also use things to your advantage in order to achieve seemingly impossible tasks... i.e infiltrate Alex's compound/headquarters on your own... More importantly, even given the turn of events I befell... It would have been nice to like... I dunno... Use my new cybernetics and cyborg components, again, to my advantage in order to become more powerful/reap new benefits and ultimately complete the mission (ideally in my own way)... Just something to think about.. As I said, other than that I loved the stylistic components of it all namely the postapocalyptic story etc etc Additionally ( I don't know for sure if you can do

It was much better than Necromancer, in my opinion. It much more extensive, the characters were fully fleshed out(which they were in Necromancer, but sometimes I just didn't feel like the dialogue or actions were justified), and there was a vast array of actions and sequences which I didn't expect.

Epilogue 1 also made me cry! I rarely cry when I read stories.

The universe you've created is sparse and I enjoy how that and the events that take place, overlap in the different journeys you go through.

I also love how you emerge a completely different personality/character depending on which path you take.

Perfect, except for a maybe a superficial thing or two, but otherwise you have me impressed!

Help, I'm stuck... I found New Haven (great epilogue) and The Shelter (my absolute favorite of the two, contrary to popular sentiment in here, it seems), but - how to get to the other two? Author, feel free to email me, I'd like a hint at what direction to choose. Amazing that I've overlooked both, the way I've been obsessing about systematically scanning each branch to get to the unread ones. Oh, btw: Please learn punctuation, the missing commas make this great story (I refuse to call it game) a bit flawed.

I love how the reader's investment of both time and afterthought reaches such a conclusion. Will definitely find the remaining two, and probably write more here. Absolutely love how these scenarios play out!

Got completely hooked here. Love how a dead end storyline isn't treated as such, but provides enjoyable reading in itself. Would love to see how things went with "the other woman" as well - how about fleshing that part out to the same extent as the epilouge storyline? Two equally rewarding wins, in a way. Epic story - in the word's true sense.

This story was probably the reason that I joined this site in the first place.

For those of you browsing through and see this story I have a few words to say. Read. This. Story.

I recant my old whiney comment about this game. I still dont like how you can make a descision, that gets you killed, but not because of that descision, but another descision you had no controll over. Dispite that, this is an overwhelming story, in depth and length. 8 out of 8.

I have to say, this game does not disappoint... again.
The first time I played this, I got the "New Haven" route finished and thought I got one of the best endings after messing around with a few other routes. I come back to play again a few months later for kicks and discover the "Atomic Alliance" route! I always did wonder about the Combine and those cyborgs; I love how every route connects in small ways to the other ones! I still kinda like the New Haven ending best, but maybe just cause it was my first. Hmm... maybe it's time to play Necromancer again. Love that one too. Continue making storygames like these two, EndMaster!

This is unbelievably detailed. I'd almost say it falls under the psych genre as it follows various lives with a sort of grim self-observance (though, inevitably, your character is a "leader" type).

Impressive! Shelter, New Haven, Atomic Alliance and Zero Dominion. Each story with its very own themes and atmosphere. The same characters used in some of the stories are also amazing as they just reflect how the path you take affects other stories that might have taken place. Besides all these, when all 4 storylines converge they reveal the main character's personalities completely. (His loner side, leadership, hidden nature,etc)
I want to give a 9/8! :)

When I found this homepage, it was like finding a cave full of treasure; but what was the most expensive piece was this story. Your ability to create a funny and interesting piece of work really helped me to understand the importance of making every decision. I think that this story made it to my top 10 stories I have ever read (that is very high, for I am a book worm). Thank you for spending so much time and effort in this-it is truly a masterpiece!!!

Very addictive reading/playing, certainly held my interest! I liked the developement of the main character as you make your choices, and the interactions with other characters were always interesting and fun to read. However dialogue could get slightly confusing; there were some points where no indication was made as to who was talking. Also, I felt that we could have had slightly more control over the storyline (one point that sticks out is the vote over who initially became the leader between Ron and Elliot, you could have given the option to actually choose rather than have a default). That aside, I enjoyed the storyline, was totally compelled to keep going to find out how everything worked out for the characters, and will definitely play through again to try all available options. Really good work!

First off, this story was - amazing. - I'm just going to get that right out there first.

Second off, that said, it had a few of it's blunders. I love how each decision isn't nesecarily a life or death thing, and how some decisions are, while invebitably futile, lead you on a sort of fun rat race before you get wasted.

But, there are some decisions that are either wholly decieving, or are just pointlessly annoying. As in, some choices are very logical, but with a little more knowledge, are incredibly stupid, or some just give you a paragraph saying "You died, failure." for making a perfectly rational decision.

Mayhaps you have some more entertaining goose chases to add?

Just my two cents. Thanks for making such an awesome story, mate. You gave me a night and a half well spent.

Outstanding. The first way I took was the community shelter story, and I think it's the best of them. Though I'm not entirely happy with the way I got together with Nina... She seemed to be quite insane too and I originally only took her to save the two men she was going to kill.

The chatroom story was a bit disturbing... is there a way to get a proper "Epilogue" ending on this route at all?

The militia story is cool and well written, and the mutant stuff is crazy but that comes from making the crazy decision of going to a major city unprotected days after a nuclear war. The "shelter" stories are much deeper though, psychologically.

Fascinating... the psychology of survivors of a nuclear attack hiding out in cramped quarters is masterfully and believably executed.

Well there's many endings, but only 4 "epilogues". You said ending 3 so I'm guessing you got the one where you founded the Atomic Alliance.

If you want a hint, there's 4 different paths you can take just before the nuclear attack. Whatever choices you made before then is going to lock you into a certain path. Two of them are inside a Shelter, and two of them are outside a Shelter. (And you got one of those already)

Technically there is a long "5th path" which occurs outside a Shelter too, but you don't get an epilogue for it.

The next time you see someone decry branching plot fiction, send them a link to "Ground Zero". Its quality and depth not only show the authors mastery of the form, but also reveal the mediums as yet unrealized potential.

The Aarseth/Montfort/Murray devotees don't know what they're missing.

I cannot believe I forgot to comment on this. All four endings are superb, even the dead end paths, which would normally be neglected, have been carefully written. The writing is so good it doesnt even need for the choices to have logical conclusions - finding out what could happen more than makes up for it. 8/8 man. Equal to Mommy.

Ah yes the rockerchick ending. More than one person has expressed their desire to see if you "made it" or not with that one.

Like I said in one of my other previous comments on here, there's a reason for why it ends like the way it does, however, maybe I might just make a short little "semi-sequel" detailing that journey, so that some people can get some closure on it.

That was a pretty good game. I only did the community shelter one, so maybe I'll go back and survive the nuclear strike alone. It did feel more like a story than a game, like you said in your description, but a pretty damn good story.

Long live Fallout, by the way.

I haven't yet played the game in all available ways (and didn't even reach a happy end) but i can surely say I like this game. Yes it's wordy and I don't know english so well (i'm russian) so i sometimes had to switch my attention to find the meanings of some words in dictionary but even so I enjoyed the game's atmosphere. I was surprised the game doesn't have general storyline (or it does?) and consists of different independent stories with their own characters (Becky and Miranda; Ron and mad sociopath) and so on... And I very like these stories of living in the shelter :)
It was a little hard to understand the main character 'cause he seems to be a real misanthrope and uses too much "f**king" in his speech but I got used to him after some time. So thanks to the author for this game!
-- Aeroalex on 3/22/2008 4:21:55 AM with a score of 0
That was a lot of fun. I had trouble occasionally, because I'd forget my character's personality occasionally and choose an option that was obviously bad. I actually went and got every ending available, because I have no life. I liked the community shelter ending best, but the Marina ending was also good, and probably better for the future of humanity. Anyway, as I said, it was really fun. Thanks for taking the time to make it.

Holy crap, man! This story is remarkable! It has well-developed characters, an incredible storyline, great dialogue, and fantastic epilogues that wrap up the story and tie up loose ends (if there are any. I've only gotten Epilogue 3, but it is awesome). In short, you are an amazing writer, and this is one of the best CYOA games I've ever played. :)

I loved the Fallout and Alpha Centauri pics, as well as the way you use language (i.e., the chat dialogues, the differences in AI versus human). The story was imaginative in that it basically dealt with total human isolation despite the ability to communicate with words - I may be looking too hard, but it seems a good analogy to the way humans interact in today's society with total wireless information beaming around. However, for me at least, the romance thing doesn't work well here and a lot of the hacking techniques seem sort of disingenuous.

Very, Very good! Behind Mommy, and a few others but still extremely good. I really love the length on each and every page. My only complaint is that as your playing you seem to feel this sense of hopelessness because so much happens on every page. You choose an option and then the character does this but it leads to something else and he does that... and another.. and another so that by the time you get to the next choice you feel as if you didn't really determine your path.
