Interesting idea for a story, I’m curious to see where this will go…

Whew, no pressure at the start, starting out as a rookie in Daytona! I was intrigued by the choices on the very first page, but disappointed when those choices led to, well, nothing. I had a choice, but the choices forced me quite quacking in the single, same path. The same thing happens on the next page, except when I choose the wrong choices, the game ends. So this is really looking like a single story with no options except death. Sometimes the choose-or-die paths can work, but they really should be limited, and if you’re going to include a lot of death endings, it is helpful (and more reasonable) to include some kind of clue in the story to let the reader know what’s going to happen and which choices are going to be instant death.

In the next section, I was hoping that the choices were starting to have an effect. There was certainly a good deal of potential there with the different events potentially affecting my starting position in the big race. In fact in one spot one of my choices actually told me that I was going to be starting in second, but when I got to the race, it said I was starting in fourth. Then, as the story continued again, it gave me more options that were the right option or death. The only place that appeared to be different was at the very end when one choice gave me second and the other gave me first.

Overall, this was a neat game with lots and lots of potential. I think this really could be developed quite a bit more by any author who needs some ideas. There could be a number of different options that could help determine not just your starting place in the big race, but also how well you do and how your choices work. For example, a fight with the other driver might lead to him cutting you off in the main race, while being nice to him might make that not happen.

It was a nice short adventure with some good details in it, thank you for sharing it with the site.

I guess it was interesting to play as this driver, since I've never seen that type of concept before. However this story could have been a lot better if it was fleshed out more, to introduce more pathways the reader could have took and thus eliminate the linearity in this story and introduce some build-up between events.

you need to be more specific about the player and the car race and some background details

Not exactly something that puts you in the place of the driver, it's sort of like playing a video game. You know you're racing but you don't feel the adrenaline rush of an actual race.

So much potential but such a let down one logic thinking so many ways to make it better more length in the story , win prize money upgrades and stuff there's a lot of ways to fast to enjoy it I thought
