That was… well, I really don’t know what that was. I’m not sure of the point of the entire game, never mind each page. I mean, come on, my mom is a squid? Okay, that’s fine, why can’t I shoot her? Most of the options were of the kind that didn’t really give you a choice. I think almost every one basically said, “Oh, sorry, you weren’t supposed to pick that one, so I’m going to force you to pick the other one.” I’m not sure what the point of the story is if there are really no options, other than just to attempt to insult the reader.

Then when you’re forced to the end, it’s all about dying, either with Larry’s help or by yourself. What the heck for? Why couldn’t I go back and hug my squid mom? What if I like squids? What if I like farts and don’t want to kill myself because I smelled a fart? Yeah, if my comments aren’t making sense, then you’re starting to get the idea of this story. Sure, there can be random stories, but this one is so random it really doesn’t make any sense. Thanks for the story, but I’m not sure this is worth the few seconds it takes to click through.

This story game was written pretty well, grammar and spelling-wise, but it wasn’t entertaining and trying way too hard to be funny.

This story is both very short and very skimpy in description and motivation. That's clearly the point—to be random and goofy. It is not so much a story as an experiment in creating off-the-wall choices (I shoot her with a harpoon gun! I throw up! I chop a hand off!)

This is the sort of game that could work if the sense of humor came through in the writing or the prose were good enough to sustain it. As it is, with almost no description, no setting, and no plot to speak of, this is an outline far more than a story. To be generous, this is someone experimenting with broad branching. Either way, skip this one.

OMG! Totes so random! I like the bit when the guy farted. Farts are funny! ^_^

It is ok, but there is no way to win where you don't die.

You go into a store, buy and axe, go back to Laurence's house, and chop Laurence's hand off.
"Hey." He said. "You chopped my hand off."
You look at him. "Yes. Yes, I did." You say.
"Oh. Okay." Laurence says. He goes back to eating Trail Mix.

HOW does one kill oneself with a rubber band and stuffed giraffe, might I ask? I hope it doesn't involve any kind of unnatural penetration.
