Great story with nicely-detailed imagery which sets the scene and is improved even further with the choice of images included in the story.

One thing I think you could improve on though, is building up your characters - especially the main character. Perhaps you could have added a notebook in which the reader could have read the thoughts of a particular character?

However overall, very nicely-done story which has enough of a challenge to keep the reader thinking, but not too difficult so as to be impossible to complete. Good job Ashen-Snake :)

Eerie. Quite well-written, and requires thought but doesn't feel frustrating in trying to beat. I managed to get (all?) three endings after a few tries. Nice work.

If you're thirteen years old, then you are the most precocious writer I've ever seen. Regardless, not only is this one of the best written stories on the site, it is one of the best stories, and combines the intense descriptions disturbing photos. Excellent everything! This is going in my list.

It's a really fun, interesting game! Except that I am really confused at the ending. Can someone explain it? Please? I didn't understand at all and now I'm getting irritated trying to figure it out.

Excellent! This had the right amount of creepiness that kept me on the edge of my seat, while providing fun gameplay to boot. I immensely enjoyed this :)

Got all three endings. Was very well written had a creepy atmosphere that made all the weird things happening seem normal for the place.
