Player Comments

I enjoyed the storygame overall, but it did have multiple flaws that effected my rating towards it.

There were multiple spelling and grammar errors, for example, on the very first page you spelled "blonde" as "blond."

There was an attempt to add detail, such as when you describe the characters, but not enough. I mean, just telling me the hair color and body of a person I don't know what they actually look like.

It felt very linear and illogical at many points to me, and I felt like I was reading an article from a newspaper then transitioning to a similar, but not the same article and tried to think of where the transition was.

The writing overall was really good and you have potential, keep trying and do closer proofreading please :D

I'm pretty sure the pc's gender is never specified. That said, there are a few indicators which point towards "girl," such as referring to Cyrus as "your best guy friend."
Overall, way too short for a story, with no real plot development or adventure. There is only one "good" ending, and it features an out-of-nowhere random hookup that I guess you get as a reward for following the rules of the story.

I noticed a few mistakes, but other than that this was quite good. The only one that really stood out was "Very, well." It doesn't look accidental. I would appreciate it if you could fix this, even though this is a very old game.
I got all the endings, and none were too good. I was never really attached to the characters, and I didn't really feel compelled to save them. This was a large problem- none of them had personalities, backstories, anything remotely like that.
You are probably better at making story games by now, but I like reviewing and rating story games anyway. Also, in the description, please erase the 'and save your friends'. It is impossible to save them unless you leave immediately.

If it was longer, I could see this getting a perfect score. Thank you for sharing it.

Creepy, seems like you don't get the opportunity to do much before a quick ending, regardless of your decisions. But it was fun.

Good idea, but it was executed poorly.

I really felt that I am in the story!
Good job on the idea to make this as a story.

Few notes: in every dead end you say: "play again?"
But there's only end game and not reset game so I just started on my own over and over...

I am thinking you could add more detail to the characters in this story, that don't have much detail I think.

And finally: in the maze, you could choose to kiss or not, if you kiss you won? And what happens to the other two characters before they get to the car and slept there?
I'm just want to know, if this carnival was a deadly, how they make out alive? (The other two)

I think You could improve a little more in this story.
Final rating: 5/8

This was okay, but stuff happened way too fast. Cyrus randomly kissed me whilst my character was shaking with terror. It could have been written a bit better. The game also ends about 2 pages after you get to the circus, so it really needs to be longer.

A bit short, would benefit from some more detailed description of the characters and the circus freaks to feel more involved in the story. Enjoyed the choices and differing plots though

That was cool, except for the fact that in order to get a good ending, you have to sleep with Cyrus. Really? O_O I just wanted to be friends...
