What perfect timing for a new thread: Darius has outdone himself again. There truly is never a dull moment with this Dutchman. His words speak volumes. His actions shake the earth. There may never be another man able to surpass him. He has ascended to godhood. This game changed my life. Before it, I was depressed and suicidal. My wife left me years ago because of this. My kids hated me. I wallowed away my grief with alcohol and prostitutes. I raped many, many children. Then, one day, I found this masterpiece of a game. By the end of it, my wife had come back to me. My kids loved me. The children forgave me. Even my childhood dog came home after running away as a pup. This was all because of this storygame. I highly recommend it to anyone who is suffering. This storygame will change your life. — Suranna on 7/5/2023 5:23:38 PM with a score of 0 On the 900 word masterpiece, "This stupid storygame"

Citing a headache for something as fucked and quarter-assed as this feels like when the author of My Immortal said Gandalf Potter called some middle schoolers motherfuckers because his head hurt. I would have accepted cholera or the suffering of cancer treatments as an excuse, because those at least have the potential to take someone out of commission for the duration of a contest. But this is no justification! No justification whatever. Also fish don't have teeth you fucking clod. I mean they do but they're tiny little pharyngial ridges and cleaned by swallowing, they wouldn't be bloody the way big ass mammal teeth get.

Eliza on 7/7/2023 for The Price of Freedom: Innocence Lost [delete]
It was good. I enjoyed the flexibility and variety of choices. I wasn't really expecting to die, but I suppose it makes a lot of sense. Honestly, there's no way I would survive a life like that. Simply because I don't like to die, but apparently I have morals and therefore must die anyways, I wish I could have been rewarded more or had some kind of benefit from spreading my skill set out a little more, but then again, it makes sense how that didn't help me becuase if you're just average at a bunch of things how can you beat another person's specific skill? Anyways, I enjoyed it. I aslo enjoyed the ability to go back and redo some things- let me see that there was really nothing I could do at that point and I would die basically no matter what. Definititely pulled me into the story and was very immersive. I suppose that I just don't like dying without any hope for the future. The ending didn't leave me feeling satisfied or resolved. Just kind of abrupt. Most stories have a happy ending- then again. I suppose that's kind of the point of having a story where you die. Despite my bitterness about dying (which I laugh at even now), good job, bravo to you, and best wishes on your further creations.

Yeah, I really should have written a happier ending where the protagonist actually survives, but as all POF players know, there is absolutely no way of surviving in Innocence Lost... Hence why there are no sequels. ^_^

Hey, I'm sorry about that comment. I found the site, played the game (absolutely amazing writing by the way), and then there was a comments section at the end, and I kind of just wrote what I was thinking in the moment (naively- of course- as I had obviously never played any other online CYOA games before). After playing a few more, I think I understand them how this site works a little better. . . and yeah. Sorry about that.

It was just a funny comment, there's nothing to apologize for.

The origins of choice based stories like these just happened to be printed books that killed you a LOT. The plot branches all have to end somewhere or they'll multiply forever, and given the situations the characters are usually in, death endings often make sense. Well that and they're just traditional

Most of the storygames here do have winning endings. Price of Freedom is a stat based storygame though and some outcomes depend on whether your character develops the right skills for the challenges they face.

It's the summer of '18. I'm 13 years old. I wish to spend my computer time playing choose your own adventure games. I come back to the site where I read all those weird warrior cat fanfictions. I think, "Hey! I like love stories. I'll check out some of the ones in the Love & Dating section." I click on Wheeler & Brandt LLP. I ignore the maturity level. I obtain my first exposure to BDSM. I shoot myself 3 times in the head.

With Chuck and Pippin deleted the site has lost one of its true classics.

Just saving a couple of reviews here so that historians will know what they missed.


Ogre:

This. Was. Amazing. There was so much rich detail on each and every page. The story just flowed so well it felt you wrote this just for me. The main character, Chuck, was so well-described he felt completely real. And the magic? The magic was woven into the world in a way that just made sense from the second page. There might have been some inside jokes there, but they were so carefully woven into the details of the world and the story that you couldn’t really be sure. Oh, and the world? Yes, this world feels like the result of a world-building that has taken years to clearly think through, develop, and work. People talk about how writing should include realistic worlds and ensure that things are consistent throughout the world, and this story really does that better than most. There were good options, and the puzzle was simply brilliant. This was a unique way to implement a puzzle with the CYS interface that I’ve really never seen before. It took me quite some time to figure out the puzzle, I was really stuck for a long time (sorry, no spoilers, you’re going to have to figure it out yourself). It was worth the wait, as the story beyond the puzzle continued along with rich storytelling and lots of excitement. The story really built throughout, making me not wanting to stop reading until I found the end. I may have ended up staying up way past my bedtime because I simply could not stop reading until I had found my way, along with Pippin and Chuck, to the end. I want to live in that jungle home with Pippin and Chuck by the serene pond.


DBNB, insightful as always and quick to get to the heart of any story:

Your writing is masterful as always,Ford. The storygame itself is dense with content and choices, and it kept me entertained until the very end. I couldn't help but be curious in all of the possible outcomes and decisions that are so neatly and wonderfully placed in this story. I have to say that I enjoyed every minute of this story. I'm tempted to say that you have outdone yourself, but your writing is always consistent in just how good it is. Thanks for yet another wonderful read, I eagerly anticipate the next storygame that you may create. Be it some inspired sequel to this storygame, or something completely different altogether. At this point I think that it is safe to say that it is only right for me to look toward to your next piece. The level of care and attention to detail that you place into each of your stories is always a treat to read and enjoy. Thank you once again, for writing this wonderful and enthralling story.

Somebody has strong feelings about the only surviving cat story from 2015.


Not_mean_just_blunt on 10/17/2023 for Live the Life of a Cat [delete]
There are no choices that actually effect anything, there is no plot, and you can't even choose your own name or gender. Also is very unrealistic, with every character always being extaotic about everything, never getting sad, and don't even ms started on the scene on the hill with the girl and her boyfriend. One: who brings their cat to fuuuu... Fuuun timesss..?

Two: the story never said anything before or even implied that the cat can talk. If that were an actual thing in the story, that would be okay, but for the cat to just randomly go, "EWWW GROSS" and then never speak again,.. why? Just why? Three: Who the heck just goes, "haha my cat thinks it's gross so now I can't have a love life hahah so funny"

And in the birthday party scene, the cat does lots of things that could have altered the story if it has gone differently but we don't even get a choice in the matter! What if I want to scratch her instead of giving her freeking two dollar necklace kits. Which is another unrealistic thing. It said that she had wanted that HER WHOLE LIFE. Imagine your entire life goal is to get a two dollar necklace kits.

Plus she was in middle school at the time. Kids younger than that can earn their own money through lawn mowing and lemonade stands and crap. And she just waits her whole life for a couple pieces of yarn and some plastic needs.

Vincha by Cel

Okay so, it's pretty rare to have stories set in the Byzantine Empire around 600 AD. Or, mediaeval fantasy stories that have actual historical fiction and aren't just "medieval" themed. So this one was a treat, the fictional worldbuilding was pretty great and layers well with the historical elements. There were some ahistorical bits here and there (Examples: The Byzantines wouldn't have been able to send 20,000 men that far north in 626! Also they would've been called the Romans) but nothing that takes you out the story.

And this story isn't a wall of text historical fiction, it's the fun kind that doesn't boggle you in too many details. That said, I have a few complaints.

Firstly, this story is too horny. Secondly, the main character's 14-year old sister exists purely for everyone to thirst over. Like, she has no other purpose in this story than to give fanservice, it's very weird. There's not a single path in this story that doesn't shoe horn in a detail about how sexy she is or has one of the characters lusting over her. Yeah, a wee bit off-putting ngl. I'm not sure if the fact that it's otherwise inconsequential to the story makes it better or worse, because on one hand it just feels even more unnecessary as a result, but on the other hand the story can be enjoyed while ignoring it.

On another note, I like the format of this story being mostly the build up to the main event. Okay, so now I'm going into spoilers (warning)

there's a little bit of me that wonders why there's like three romantics in this story, but there's a few interesting paths that get barely any detail. That one path where the MC eats the artifact is really cool but there's no forking or choices after it. Idk it would've been interesting, I wish the story did more with it. I can say the same about a lot of the choices you make, many of the story endings feel like they, rather than a forgettable love interest, the MC's 14-year-old sister, and the witches horniness, could've gotten more focus. At times I wondered if this was a well-written porn story.

Overall one of the best stories, though it's a shame the MC didn't get it on with Semra

Incubus on 2/20/2024 for Love SICK
I do have a kink for sisters (and daughters) and an extreme disregard for human life, so it's like he wrote it for me!😊

Incubus on 2/22/2024 for A Very Special Choose Your Story
This is cursed, in the best way possible! I've read all the pathways, both male and female (which I recommend you all do!) and I will remember many of them for the years to come. The only sad thing was difference in sex pathways (1 for male, 2 for female). And even that puny one for the guy resulted in !!!SPOILER death, sacrificial death! As a conclusion, I would remind EndMaster that all straight incest is wincest!

Incubus on 2/23/2024 for Tales From The Basement
After reading this, one quote will forever remain dear to my heart! “Tis better to have fucked your cousin and die, then to have never fucked your cousin at all.”

Incubus on 2/23/2024 for Tales From The Basement
There's a line in the anime obsessed one: "I wish you were 12!" Something about it shook me to the core, really made me question myself and my... open-mindedness to the age of a potential partner. 🥶 Hope I shake this feeling soon! My personality has a much higher stake in incest loliconness than I ever expected. (I'm exaggerating, if just a bit, so please nobody report me or smth 🙏)

Incubus on 2/23/2024 for Innkeeper
Irking that you couldn't get it on with Rita the gold digger. She's hot, mean, selfish and hot. Did I mention hot? Anyway, almost the perfect woman, as far as I'm concerned. Other than that, one of the less impressive of EndMaster's works, don't nobody go form an opinion on him just based on this!

Incubus on 2/24/2024 for Rogues
This is shaping up to be a great story, though I really hope the MC's twin sister is romanceable. So many rumors flying about, might as well make em true!😏 Don't get me wrong, Annah is great and all, being bitchy and high maintenance, but c'mon! A twin sister!

Not sure how the hell you've missed it by this point, but you'll probably want to read Repression next. Have a feeling there's several endings you'll like in that story.

Heard tons of good things about the game and story, specifically from the new book "50 Years of Text Gaming". Started the game with anticipation, only to be disappointed with tons of f-bombs and swearing in the first few paragraphs. No thanks. Not everyone talks like a juvenile.

Cool shit, Eternal apparently got fucking mentioned in a fucking book about fucking text gaming.

EDIT: After some searching I think I found a mention in the book on some weird website.

Eternal (EndMaster, ChooseYourStory.com). Epic choice-based dark fantasy about a soldier with a chance to change the world; one of the most popular of all time on the web-based ChooseYourStory portal.

Apparently the website got mentioned at least 11 times in this book. (Some of it involving the AI Dungeon chapter lol).
