This was actually pretty good for a first story. There were a decent amount of choices that were presented in this, and the choices actually had impact on which direction the story would take. Although I'm not really familiar with the series that this storygame was based on, I never found myself lost with trying to understand the plot.

So as a stand-alone game, this would still be something that's pretty enjoyable. Some things were left rather ambiguous, like why the robots suddenly decided to turn on mankind, but the endings tie up nicely in my opinion.

While the idea of robots suddenly going mad is a bit cliche, I think that the writing did a good enough job to not make it too overly redundant, for the most part.

Also, many of the characters felt rather dull and lifeless. I don't think that one character had any line or personality trait that made them stand out for me, so the characters for the most part just felt like pieces being shuffled around as the plot progressed.

Overall, this is okay. It's not a terrible storygame by any means, but there's so much that's left rather unknown and up to interpretation to the reader.

The serious tag is the kicker here. I'd have believed this was intended as a comedy otherwise. The dialogue is occasionally laughable and characters are defined as little more than "Generic Starbucks Barista"

This being a fanfiction of course the setting is completely ill-defined and the events completely unexplained. It's not all bad though, the writer seems to generally grasp the English language and certainly put in a fair effort. We had choices and consequences. This was recognizable as a story even! Best still, the writer may have improved his or her skills in the process.

The "Serious" tag was a joke right? This...is a comedy?

That was a good story. I think the only problem I have with it is that it ended pretty abruptly.

It's OK, for a first game... I got a good fairly short ending.
