You, as Elle Jergens, have generously volunteered to help your grandma run her bed and breakElle 2.jpgfast for the summer. Located less than a mile from the beach, it seems like paradise! Along with taking care of the gusts and helping out around the inn, you'll have to solve a fun, puzzle-filled mystery! Is your grandma really as forgetful as everyone believes she is, or is something very strange going on at the Dandelion Hills Bed & Breakfast?

Couple of things to keep in mind: score is being kept, so guessing when you reach a puzzle in order to reach the end is not going to help your score. Right answers are all +100 and wrong answers are -25.

Another note--I spent a très long time constructing this and putting it together. I'm not saying it is perfect or brilliant or the best ever by any means--all I'm saying is if you don't like it, if you could could refrain from saying that in a harsh or rude manner, I'd really appreciate it. Just keep in mind, this is only the second choose your own adventure I've done, and my first with the advanced editing mode. I'm still working out everything! Okay, I've rambled walled-garden-l.jpgenough.

Above all, have fun, enjoy, and challenge your brain a little! Speaking of which, I had NO idea how to rate this for difficulty. I'm not sure if the puzzles are too difficult or too easy, so if you comment, if you could rate the game as easy, moderate, or difficult so future potential players can get more opinions, I'd appreciate it.

I really liked this game. I'm all for puzzles and this had a few that intermingled quite nicely. There were a lot of bugs with the features which is something you'll just get better with as you learn more about the AE. My problem is more with spelling/grammar mistakes, some whole words were actually missing from sentences! My advise would be to do what you're doing, but then take more care and proof read and play test it more thoroughly.

Ugh, ignore thisisBo. He/she posts those things everywhere and hasn't even made a single storygame yet. You took all the advice/criticism I gave you in your last game and applied them. I can't say enough good things about this game- recipes and food pics made my mouth water, puzzles were logically sound, just enough backstory and easter eggs to tie to the rest of the series, good character development, not too hard, not too easy for me- I would rate it Difficult however relative to other puzzle games. I think that this game deserves to be featured in the Mystery section if you clean up all the mistakes. If you go over every single page yourself, you'll see a lot of them. If you used the cell phone early on in the game, there was no link to go back and you were stuck! You need to double check every page in your story before publishing it. Keep writing mysteries/puzzle stories!

This was quite well-written and I enjoyed playing it a lot. The clues and mysteries were very clever and it looked like you spent a lot of time on it! The pictures and opportunities to use them made it even more fun. I think that this puzzle was difficult, but not too hard for me to solve. All in all, you did a really great job!

This was a very interesting game. You can tell that you put a lot of effort into it. The puzzles were challenging. This is one of my favorite games.

A lot of fun. Puzzles weren't too hard or too easy. I'd give it a Moderate to Hard for most. Keep up the good work!
