A normal day at school. With quizzes. And experiments. And monsters. And traps. And a mysterious door you surely want to know more about.

Very, very random. It was extremely linear at multiple points and I barely understood what was happening at some points because the situations made little to no sense. For example...

"Suddenly, the floor beneath your feet vanishes and you fall into a bottomless hole."

Ok. So, for no logical reason, the floor just vanishes and I die? Ok then.

But I guess I did like the plot. It's very interesting to see someone make a school based story with a mystery aspect.

The setting was a bit dull and not very well fleshed out, but hey, it's better then some stories on here.

Character development wasn't exactly 10/10, but it was definitely there, little or not.

A pretty decent storygame. ^_^

Yes, it was somewhat random as far as the 'mystery' and adventure goes in this, but this wasn't a bad story by any means. The writing is good, though sometimes I couldn't help but feel that it lacked imagination or detail for when such things were crucial. I must say that this seems like a storygame that would've benefited greatly from the use of the advanced editor, because it automatically assumes the player to have items that they wouldn't have obtained unless going through certain scenarios. That's an issue, because it somewhat makes this storygame feel a bit disconnected in its presentation unfortunately.

Also, there are deaths in this game that seem to come at the player at random and there's not much here in terms of characterization. For the most part though, this does remain a pretty decently made story. Minor issues with grammar aside and such.

If anything, despite some flaws this was quite enjoyable and I look forward to reading more from this writer.

Actually, I don't think you could fall so fast the flesh was torn from your bones. You'd reach terminal velocity at only about 122 mph, which is only slightly higher than the average dive speed of a peregrine falcon.

The abbreviated style works well in the description, but I agree with Kiel. This story would have been even better if you'd gone into more detail- not just about the death scenes, but in general.

This is a really nice storygame, but I think you should have used the advanced editor for the items since you could cheat by picking the right link even though you haven't got that item yet in the story; It's also really cool since you get certain objects/info from your classes that will help you later.
The 'wake up' or 'sleep some more' options are a little cliche tho.
P.S. I ditched the girl for the treasure. I'm heartless :P

Really good! I hope your game becomes more popular but I will probably replay it to see other options!

This was a fun little game, I actually think i chose the best options. I think you could apply this into more games so good luck to you.

Could be a little more worked into.

its pretty good story though most of the skills you get in school not would usefull but overall fun and i loved it. To bad you could not get the monster as a pet but overall great i love money

Meh, okay. I do like that you can choose between going to school and exploring the door, and that going to school helps you with the door. So overall, okay.
