Honestly, I found this storygame to be really good in quality, but obviously there's a large lacking in quantity.

Your good writing is really what saved this storygame from getting removed, i'd guess, because there really wasn't much else that was good about this storygame besides that.

The branching wasn't anything to be proud of, since there was barely any of it. Of course, it's understandable that you can't add too many paths in a very, VERY short storygame.

This isn't the kind of thing i'd read twice, or recommend to anyone else, but it's still pretty good. Just not great.

Some of the paragraphs could have been split up better, and spaced out more. At times there were just big blocks of text.

A good three minutes of reading, I guess? 3/8.

This story is very underrated. Regardless of length, the story is complete. In one way, the lack of length is a strength. You packed allot of good into a small package. Your word choice was also very appropriate for the story, great job. An enjoyable bite-sized snack. 6/8

Wow. This is a beautiful storygame and has the kind of atmosphere of one of Grimm's Fairy Tales. Although short, there are quite a few options of where to go with some very unique options. I was quite surprised at all the different endings available.

All in all, a really good job and definitely one of the more unique stories on this site.

I liked the story, there's a certain kind of simplicity to all of this that makes it very enjoyable to read-- especially in a short amount of time.

I found the story really compelling and well written (despite having gotten a depressing ending). Good job, keep it up!

This story was very descriptive and detailed even though it was pretty short. Good job. 7/8

Well written, if a bit short. I liked the fact that it was descriptive.
