Player Comments on TheLight
I'm extremely sorry that I have to write this review. I don't mean to offend you, and I'm only writing this because it can help you grow as a writer.
There were many grammatical errors, lack of detail and the story was extremely short. The plot wasn't well developed as it was all over the place, and you certainly didn't develop your character. It was like you were all over the place, and you couldn't stick to ONE idea.
Now I'll point out some of your mistakes. On the first page, you wrote, "You are really tried from walking towards the light, do you want to sit down and sleep a little?" I'm pretty sure that you meant tired, but you were probably fumbling around with the keys and whatnot. Be aware of your mistakes and scan every single page for even a slight mistake. Nothing can be flawless, but you can at least make it decent.
Here's another part which you wrote:
In front of you is a desk with papers on it. You look at the papers
and you read about scandal about a celebrity. You realize that if you release this scandal to the news, you will ruin his life forever, possibly leading him to sucide, but it might promote you for finding a news story like this.
Huge gap between these two, and I'm pretty sure that it is supposed to be one paragraph. You should have fixed that when you were typing up your game.
When I decided to yell at some homeless guy on the street, but he decided to consume me. That isn't really realistic because humans don't decide to consume each other in the open, and it takes some effort from prying a leg away from a person.. You wrote this: "He just bit a part of your leg off. You try and fight him off but you do not have the strength and he eventually eats you." Yeah. Might want to rethink this. Also, a homeless person doesn't have that much strength because of the lack of food. Apparently our protagonist which we are playing as isn't strong enough even though have three meals a day.. Not realistic, and even if you wrote this scene, it required more details.
When I got that Hitler page, I noticed that you don't care about punctuation or spelling. You wrote this: you see the nurse stabbing you repeatly and crying while saying "Für den Führer!"
Uh.. I believe that repeatly is spelt as *repeatedly. Grammarly can aid you in these minor problems, so you should download it. Also, it looks like you just copy and pasted German without changing it into the font which matches the rest. You have to think about presentation as well.
This game lacked many things, and I believe that you really lacked detail. You should have wrote more, then hired a beta-tester to check out your game and what to improve before releasing this game. Poorly written, and if this is what you think "decent" is, I'm not looking forward toward any of your story-games.

I don't write any stories myself so I hate to rate storygames too harshly. But this one just got too many flaws that it needs to be called out. But please don't mistake my intentions for doing so. Just want to help you out on noticing what's wrong so you can avoid doing it for your next storygame. First of all the spelling and typewriting of the game is bad. I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of nice people in forum that you can ask to test out the game for you before you release it. And about the story, it lacks detail, it lacks narration, it lacks a lot. The idea is there, you just need to make everything have sense so that it won't feel too disjointed. I'm pretty sure that you can do better than this and I can definitely assure you that I'll be waiting for more from you and I'm not even being sarcastic. You got the idea, you just need to polish it. Everyone gotta start from somewhere right? Try harder next time and good luck!

I like what I think you were trying to do, but it felt a little disjointed and confusing. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for or not. Also there were a couple of the item links I found that, when prompted to present them, did nothing. (The pen, the flag when prompted on the actual ending page.) Not the best game, but not terrible. With a few changes it could be really great.

This game was pretty random and didn't make much sense. You probably could have developed a more complete plot. Or, according to the description you have above, if it's about making a series of different moral decisions, you need to make it clear that the decisions are not directly related from one choice to the next.
This probably belongs in the Everything Else category, rather than the Mystery/Puzzle.
Also, please check your grammar and quotation usage. Sometimes it was difficult to tell who was speaking, and this could be especially distracting for the reader.
2/8, mostly for effort.

Spoiler!!!!! I don't care that I died in the story. It was worth it to kill Hitler.

I have no idea whats going on. I make choices but some of them seem to contradict the others. I think I found the 3 real endings.

WHAT? There are so many things wrong with this. First of all, it has terrible grammar and literature, and if I went to sleep I died?!
What is this? A chance to get points? Stop giving us crap...

Best Story/Game ever! It was very interesting. I especially loved the parts about saving hitler and antimatter bombs, as I am very interested by these things. Although Hitler is my waifu, I love you nuclearwarfareaw10!

Not too shabby, I couldn't give away my pen at the end, though. My ending was rather peaceful. :)

A very interesting little story. Short enough for me to see all the possibilities without getting board. A solid 5

Hehe, Well this was a test for advanced editor mostly, but did you find the secret ending?

Interesting, though it is annoying to have false choices where the player just dies if they didn't pick the right choice.

It was a bit chaotic and I could not give my items to the man at the end of the game. :)
