Axxius, The Dramatist
Hey! You! Don't click away! I wrote a story game so go check it out and give me feedback. :D
A seemingly hopeless winter falls on you and your regiment as you lie in wait at Valley Forge. You are tired, your shoes are nearly worn and the smell of death and disease lays heavy on the camp. Rumor has it Washington is planning something before year's end. Personally, you think he's going to surrender. Only one way to find out. You trudge through the peppermint-colored snow around the doctor's tents as you make your way to the officers' cabins.
In this story, you step into the role of a soldier in the American Revolution at one of the key turning points in the war as you participate in the battle of Trenton and witness the events firsthand.
A love letter to Ray Bradbury.
The Fireman, broken and rebuilt, whose past lies in ashes trudges down the railroad tracks towards a new path. The Professor a coward by nature finds the courage in his heart to leave behind his old life and start a new one. And the Pilot left empty, grasping for something in her life, strives toward a new chapter that will test her will and grit.
When an important King goes missing, it's up to you to steal the only magical artifact that may be capable of finding him. You must accomplish this while navigating the politics of your organization, the whims of your client, and about a half dozen things trying to kill you daily.
For the Corgi contest...

Day 27: Struggles With Finishing
"Yikes. I have 2 stories rated below a 4." 325boy.
Well, time to review these stories. Ok, I'm going to level with you, 6 Door Puzzle, was not that bad. Sure it was a little more challenging than I anticipated, but I got through it and it's fine. However, This GAME, Welcome to Puzzle Land, This game broke me, @325boy EXPLAIN. I'm not reviewing this or progressing any further on my trek through madness until I beat this game. I refuse to quit until I finish Puzzle Land regardless of how difficult it is to navigate. I DARE anyone who sees this to even try to beat this puzzle in an hour because I am struggling. I'll update this post if I actually to beat it, but that probably won't be anytime soon because this is the most difficult puzzle game I've played on the site thus far.

Day 26: Ye Olde Relics found here.
So, I found a really old story probably one of the oldest on the site. To give you context this story was ranked #35 in 2001, so it shows you how much has changed if this story was ranked that high way back when. They probably had only 100 stories at most back then. I don't know for certain I'd have to consult the historical archives. Anyways here it is!
This second one caught my attention because it's a fan-fiction of Orwell's 1984. I read Animal Farm by Orwell but only because I was required by my school to read it and I watched a brief synopsis of the plot so I have a vague idea of what it's about. Personally, I've been mulling over ideas of writing a Fahrenheit 451 fan-fiction since I read that story and thoroughly enjoyed it, but that's probably not in the near future.

Day 25: Don't be Dragon me down.
Ok so I read all the dragon stories I heard were bad and reviewed them. Let me know if I missed any of them. The third one wasn't too bad all things considered.

Day 24: The groaning caverns of madness beckon me along upward and downward. I don't even know which direction I'm going anymore I just know I have to keep going forward.
Anyways! You'd think these stories would have more branching but Nah.
Though I will admit this first story was more amusing than the second probably because it was more game than story and it made up for the plot gaps. Rise of Vollund II. A short dungeon crawl that may or may not bore you.
This second one however is pret. You better hide... Don't let the overly dramatic title fool you, the only thing more disappointing than reading this story is that the author who wrote it somehow has more points than I do.
Well, that's it for now until next time!

Day 23: Cursed story games.
It's interesting the lore you'll find on these story games just by looking at people's profiles that created or commented on the stories themselves. In this particular instance, I don't think it was a good thing. I did, however, find a passionately worded admin penalty and profile on one of the characters from the Bad Mods season after reading the sacred texts of Cystia which I had a good laugh over.
Anyway here are the cursed stories I reviewed. Personally wouldn't be sad to see either of these go.

Day 22: Revenge of the fanfiction
Hoo boy! This was long and repetitive but I finally reviewed it. Had this game been a short story more so than a fully fleshed-out version of the original I think it would've been digestible more cause yikes. It had some redeeming qualities but it needs a good bit of work.
EDIT: Even though that's a core game mechanic of life is strange since the game is about time loops, I fully agree with you that in a reading format it's very annoying.

Day 21: I don't have a creative title for this one.
I found some edutainment games with interesting facts that were honestly king of boring to read through. I think unless you have a very specific interest in subjects that stories like these are talking about it's hard to enjoy it too much.
Extinction of the Neanderthals about big dumb cavemen.
The Forest Manager the title speaks for itself.
I've been trying to rate all the new games that have been published recently but I've been pretty busy lately with other things. There's quite a lot of skilled writers with potential on this site and the more I review these low rated stories the more I appreciate them.

Day 20: aw yeah we're past the teenage years.
Found some old relics that may or may not be worth checking out depending on your preference of number of pop culture references in a story or how happy of a person are you and whether you feel like exploring that.
Positive or negative.
