Humor
In this adventure you play Postie, the adventurous postman from Perth who finds himself on a wild adventure.

Unlike in the US, Australian postmen are lazy, and therefore ride around on dirtbikes painted red and stamped with the Australia Post logo. Honda CC-100's, or something.
It's possible to visit every continent in the game, although possibly not in one shot.

It's based on a story my friends and I made up one morning walking to school - a postman zipped past us at large speeds, and we pictured what would happen if he swerved to the left and used the kerb as a ramp. After many wild adventures, and by the time we were passing through the goalposts on the oval, he was in the Andes.

I... I loved this. This was incredible in my opinion.

The writing was not only good, but it was also very humorous and I laughed multiple times. I did detect lolrandom humor here, but you didn't overdo it and I felt like you knew when enough was enough with the lolrandom stuff, something many authors who use it don't understand.

I liked the plot and the setting. You fleshed them out very well and I could see a clear image of what the character was going through due to the detail you provided, and it was certainly a pleasure to read because of this.

I liked how the pages had many options and links, and I loved the branching they led to. While some are humorous, some are actually logical choices, which I like :D

I did notice a few spelling mistakes, but nothing major. A quick proofreading can fix this.

The length was also nice in my opinion.

6/8, I really liked it!

Outside of a few spelling/grammatical errors and a couple broken links. This is a well crafted story with lots of fun choices. The humor so is wonderful that even the untimely endings don't feel so bad.

I guess a quick, decapitating death by irritated farmer isn't the worst way to go...

Intriguing. It's everything one should expect from Australia! XD Great comedic value and a nice little read that reminded me a lot of the "Wine or Cheese?" game. Good stuff!

That was freaking helarious! Aside from some spelling mistakes on the "stapler" and "falling into the truck" pages that I found, it was pretty seemless, personally, I chose right, then the office, then the fan, then the helicopter, and finally channel 7. I'd say what happens but I don't want to give it away.

funny, but the genie always screws you

Not bad. Funny writing and lots of different choices (even if some of them lead you to same place). Bit of a short story and in Brazil they speak Brazilian Portuguese, otherwise LMAO.
