Player Comments on The Weird Day

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.

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.

Ha this was mildly amusing. Contrary to others, I like how the story begins with absolute nonsense: you're mom is a giant squid.

This is a bit of a marmite story, I think people will either like it for the creativity or hate it for it's pointlessness. Personally I like creativity, if you can take that into a bigger story you'll get a bigger reaction I guess. I don't know what to say, Family Guy is pretty random and that's popular, but that might be because there's more than randomness in it, possibly a plot line of some sort might be handy?

Alright, allow me to explain something: The whole point of a game being based entirely on the premise of a "weird day" is the craziness of the events and the contrast between the normal and the bizarre.

Think of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. The majority of the story is, yes, in a strange and wonderful world filled with oddities, but the writers started us off in a fairly bleak and gray atmosphere, which gives us the contrast.

It might've helped if you started us off at the very end of a normal day for our character, giving us a glimpse into the norm, and then led us into the bizarre day. On the other hand, you could've also showed us what the character was thinking, and had the contrast come from the fact that they expected a sane, ordinary wake up call instead of their mom being a giant squid.

Now, if you neglected both approaches, you could've at least given us depth of description. "You wake up. Your mom is a big squid." That's not very interesting, to be honest with you. Sure, it's a weird thing to wake up to, but with such a blunt, brief, and boring summary of something that should be so terrifying, strange, and insane, there's no real impact on the reader.

This story is, sadly, pretty boring. You can't just say something weird happened and expect your story to be interesting as a result, you need to elaborate. Give us a fully formed world, otherwise it just falls flat.

This could've been a great, silly horror story. You also included a forth wall joke, asking the character if "we" could get back to the story, and that's all well and good--but you executed it with bathroom humor. Poor bathroom humor, at that.

It was okay. The spelling wasn't terrible and you did the whole "wacky adventure" idea a little bit better than others on this site. Still, though there were a lot of choices they either led to a game over or to continue the story, which kind of took the choice out of the game. Also, it was really short and things just weren't explained that well.

3/8

Why do people assume that you have to be alive at the end for you to win? Do you live at the end of your life? Is it still considered "winning"? ^ ^

"No. I want to know who's them!"
Laurence looks hurt. "Fine."
You smile. "So, who's them?"
Laurence looks at you. You'll never forget that look. A look of pain. Pure pain.
Laurence then farts loudly.
