Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

High school can be tough with all the cliques, bullies, "resource" officers, and changing rules. But that is nothing compared to the pre-school room! In pre-school you don't even know what a rule is, never mind that you're breaking it. And those evil naps can slip up on you before you know it. Can you make the right choices to make it through the pre-school day without getting spanked?

Please note: There are just three endings to this little short: you survive pre-school, you do not make it through the day, and, well, you don't want to get the other ending.

Also note: This is an intentionally short, very light-hearted story that is meant to be silly. Please read and enjoy in that vein.

This game captured the essence of childhood really well, it made me wish I was that age again through the child's thought process. I wish my problems involved dragons in books. :(
It actually brought back a few of my own Kindergarten memories, so thanks for that I always enjoy a good memory flash in my brain.

The extended metaphor of the prison was also very clever and well done. I liked how it started in the cot and then moved to the kindy. I interpreted it as the child's state of having no power over anything and feeling trapped.

One thing that was a bit weird was the age of the kid. Kindy aged kids normally don't sleep in a cot or still breastfeed?

I found the story very lighthearted and pretty funny. The transgender book thing was pretty good and I also enjoyed the mum dumping her kid and gapping it- it reminded me of my mum!

Each page flowed seamlessly from each choice to the next and it felt like I was reading a book. It was easy to play and although short still had a pretty decent plot.
Definitely deserves to be in the top 10 for 2017, well done :)

This certainly fulfilled the humor part. I loved the perspective of our protagonist, and the way you wrote about Pre-School made everything hilarious as we all have graduated it. I didn't notice any major issues, and the plot-line was spot on.

When I was playing the game, it certainly seemed like a prison when you were describing it. The prison guards, lunch-time.. Everything had a funny element to it. The endings were random, but I enjoyed them. I should have expected the "Sexual Harassment" ending, so I was a bit shocked, but laughing all the same.

This game was extremely amusing and entertaining. This certainly didn't lack any details, and I noticed no grammatical/spelling mistakes whatsoever so I'm quite pleased. It was a bit short, but otherwise, it was excellent.

This is such a funny storygame. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, at first, but I honestly do. It's defiantly different from anything else I've read.

This was a fun game that was pretty funny. I particularly enjoyed the bit with the transgender book cover and the sexual harassment ending. The disappointment over the Cheerios was pretty accurate.
However, it was quite confusing about what the age of the protagonist was supposed to be. He is going to preschool, but often he seems as if he is supposed to be a baby. He still breastfeeds, sleeps in a crib, wears diapers, etc.

I found this really funny, although I believe children are usually potty trained and able to walk by the time they get to preschool. Anyway it was a lot of fun.

I became a baby sex offender...
I don't know whether to laugh or be freaked out.

this was a very strange story but in an entertaining style, my preschooler ended up sexually harassing another toddler so that's interesting, it was longer than i expected which was nice
