Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 10. If this were a movie, it would probably be between G and PG.

You start as a kitten just opening its eyes. What happens from there is up to you.



This is my first game so it's probably not going to be that much of fun so plz don't be mean to be about it or anything.

Well, it's not warriors...

So, the first issue we have with the game is that there are no real choices. A few pages had links ranging from about one to four. The issue with the pages with more then one link, is that it pretends to offer choices and branching, when in reality, if you choose any of the links besides one specific one, they all just link you to the other option that progresses you. Your job as the author of a choose-your-own-adventure story is to make sure the reader has meaningful choices and a pleasant experience reading it.

That being said, I did find the writing and the overall story in general to be rather cute. It was short, but had a certain charm to it that made it quite adorable to read through.

The detail could use work. Not having much detail certainly raised the linearity of this story, and made for a rather confusing setting at most points.

Character development was below average. It would have been nicer if you'd made a better attempt to flesh out the emotion and characteristics of the characters in this story, because then the reader would have a better reason to try and understand how the characters feel.

2/8, try harder, you've got potential.

This was actually quite adorable. The writing wasn't bad by any means as it was quite serviceable with the setting that was provided for the reader. This storygame is exactly what the title says, maybe just a bit too much. There's not much happening in the story, but I suppose cats don't exactly live exciting lives, or at least lives that many would find interesting.

Still this was quite a cute story that I didn't mind reading through to the end. The imagery and descriptions certainly aided in making this a decent storygame. My only minor complaint is that I felt more could be done with this story to make this more interesting to read. Also, it's quite linear, despite it's nice writing.

All in all, this was pretty enjoyable to read. Despite some of the flaws that are present.

This is one of the better cat games I've played. I actually quite enjoyed your writing, but as you said yourself, it's quite boring.

Literally, the story is a description of the cat's life, and while the cat can make choices that actually affect things (at some points), it's really nothing outside the box of... well, a cat's life. There's not really any antagonist, and therefore no conflict, either.

Your writing skills are great, but like Will said, start a new line for dialogue. Otherwise, make this an actual story with conflicts.

This was a cute storygame, although there were many issues. There were grammar problems, and there weren't many choices that affect the story. I don't mind that it isn't an elaborate, complex story, because I see it's just supposed to be a short, cute story.

Good job! Next time, try to brush up on your grammar and add more details.

(Don't listen to Jayfeatherlova, obviously she/he is a warrior cat lover, so he/she probably isn't used to a story about non-warrior cats [aka "kittypets"])

Wished there was more branching that didn't immediately lead to end game.

this game gives you exactly what the title promises. there's not really that much more to it, but i don't see the issue- it's just a cute, short game. nothing wrong with that.
