Heh. I found it humorous, but short. Like one of those books people enjoy, but they have only 100 pages in them and then they're like, "What? That's it?!"

The fact that it's a mystery aspect story made it very interesting, especially with the whole wolf/dog perspective thing. I found it very creative and impressive you were able to put those together and have a quality storygame come out of it.

Sadly, it did have some downsides, such as being very easy since the choices didn't seem to effect the story much, only the end choices did for me (unless I refused to help with the case). Branching is key for storygames, remember!

I can't tell you how much I thought this was warrior cats at first. The first few words were about joining the pack, and I was literally about to die thanks to it. I'm very glad that wasn't the case. xD

There were also spelling mistakes, although I spotted little to no accidental ones, but there were ones that I imagine were on purpose (such as "stahp"), but a spelling error is a spelling error to me.

Overall, the storygame, despite being incredibly short was fun to me in a way, but more character development would have been nice, especially for a mystery storygame like this one.

I'm gonna say 4/8, pretty good.

Okay, this was cute, but I had the vague feeling the whole time that I was dealing with characters I SHOULD know something about, but actually know nothing about, other than their eye color. I mean, it's pretty harmless and somewhat adorable, but ultimately it lacks enough substance to know what you were trying to accomplish.

short but funny great for laughs although you should define whats happening like what happened or if your wolves or greyhounds(lol)

Well a fun little story but a bit strange. I was trying to find out "who did it" while wondering the whole time "who did what". Cute story though :)

It was okay, nothing too interesting. Really only linear.

It's good, and I like the mysteriousness and that you are a dog. It's too easy, because no matter what you win, and your decisions don't affect the story. Still good, but you should you make a way to lose, and then it would be 6/8! But you should be happy! 4/8 is the average rating!

Good Job! :-)
