This story was quite entertaining to read, and it never felt dull or like it dragged on. I liked that there were a decent amount of choices to choose, and each path provided interesting outcomes for the reader. The humor in this genuinely made me laugh a few times as it was just so silly, but written so well, too.

This is definitely a storygame that I wouldn't mind coming back to enjoy again in the future. :D

This tale is simultaneously hilarious and terrifying. The humor is excellent, the descriptions are perfect, and there are no errors to speak of. It's hard to pull off a story where both the finger-puppets thing and the udder-tickling trope can work, but you've done it. Marvelous job; a personal favorite.

Spoiler Alert: The answer to your riddle is...HIS DOUGHNUTS. It was a lovely tale, loved every bit of it. Only downside is I died when I tried to tickle the cow's udders. Oh and also never seeing the milkman's daughter, only a goat named Bessa.

Short and sweet with some good choices and very fun moments. The story is interlaced on all levels with humor, some jokes needing multiple play throughs to fully appreciate. A solid effort with several satisfying ends. It feels rushed at times and certain elements are mentioned but superfluous to the story and never really implemented or explored. Despite that one observation this is a sweet and light adventure with some good twists.

What. The. Fuck. Did. I. Just. Read.....
Seriously, I'm kinda confused what to say so I present you 10 Text passages worth Mentioning:

-"I have a final gift for you," the cloaked woman says. She spreads her legs wide and squats down. An egg falls heavily to the floor. "This egg contains the last of my power. Cracking it shall grant you immense strength." Bloody afterbirth trickles down her leg.

-Power surges through your limbs. Your manhood swells to thrice its size and curly black hair sprouts from your chest and back.


-The unicorn disappears. From that day on you get the uncomfortable feeling he's watching you whenever you go to the bathroom.

-"Tickle my udders, human!"

-You can see the old woman's true form now. She is a benevolent demon with blue skin and four arms. "Come feed, my children," she beckons, opening her robe and revealing a dozen swollen teats. You nestle in beside Gerald and fill yourself with mother's love.

-You kiss her turgid lips, her smooth scalp, the dark place beneath her flippers. Eels slither down your throat as you give her the most sensual kiss of all. If you still had a gag reflex, you might have been saved. Instead, the eels fill your lungs and you slip into darkness.

-You hurl his dead body into the gutter where the rats and the hobos can take turns defiling it.

-You rise and fill the basin on your nightstand and wash the urine from your hair. What a night! A Princess for your first time, where do you go from here?

-"Would you still love me if I was fat? Would you love me if I went bald? Would you love me if I was in a wheelchair? Would you still love me if all of my skin fell off and my bones had chickenpox..."

I recommend this story. It's funny as hell.
