Just minding your own business...
I don’t even know what to think about this. There is very little on the main page to encourage someone to read this story. Then if you do decide to read it, the very first page starts out by telling you not to read the story. Is this supposed to be ironic? A legitimate warning might be something, but even the warning is just plain silly, but not in a good way.
From there it just sort of goes downhill. There’s a strange loop when you decide to walk outside that takes you back to choosing to walk outside again. Then, when you’re walking outside you’re allowed to enter something, but there’s nothing there to enter, but you’re inside and there’s absolutely no description of the thing that you entered. I don’t know if I’m in a shack or an elephant’s intestines. But that’s okay, because apparently there’s a garage nearby (in the middle of the open prairie, apparently). In another place, apparently I’m too slow to outrun a cougar, but that’s okay because I get to choose a death ending or just walk back inside the clubhouse.
I don’t really understand the purpose of this story at all. And it’s not the usual lolrandom story where random stuff happens with random choices – it’s not that connected. It’s almost like five different people wrote this story without ever talking to each other and just deciding there’d be cougars in the story. Not a great effort here, overall, in my opinion.

This story is pretty random, and a leaves a lot of questions to the reader that it shouldn't. What is this clubhouse that you speak of? Where am I? Who am I? Where did a bunch of Cougars come from?
I think that this story should be properly worded better as well, so as to not leave those questions to the reader.
Its a very strange plot, where apparantly a bunch of cougars attack your "clubhouse". I think that, although there were multiple endings, the writing/plot wasy short enough and it could be extended in more ways than one. For example, adding more choices could have helped. I liked the garage scene where you had to guess the code as well, although it was pretty obvious once you got "3" and "1" where it would go. Its a simple pattern, but I guess that's as to not frustrate the reader. However, leaving some clues in other areas as to the password would help. Also, having more scenes (whcih I guess adds onto the "more choices") would also further the story, which would leave the reader with a better end feeling.
The writing was at least good enough. I caught some mispellings and other grammatical errors, but it was better than most with 4/8-and-below ratings.

I thought that this is a short yet fun game.

Had a good time shootin' cougars. Thank you for that experience.

This game sucks. The only option is to die to cougars. The only actual path where you find a gun to defend yourself has no links to it. Why are there cougars in my yard?
Also when the author says don’t read this storygame you should listen to them. Don’t waste your time like I did and play this dumb game that has literally zero effort put into it. There’s no good ending and bunch of dumb loops with minimal effort put into it.
Absolute trash. The only thing amusing about this steaming pile of garbage is the title. Other than that it’s just a waste of time.

Well, at least I don't have to feel bad leaving mean comments on this game, considering it was made 14 years ago, and the author has probably forgotten that the game even exists.
This is the kind of game that makes me wonder why the author even bothered to make something out of it. The premise is cougars... That's literally the entire plot of the game. Cougars exist. Try not to get eaten... That's it. It's a plot that the author clearly wasn't invested in and probably just came up with off the top of their head one day. And honestly, if the author isn't invested in the premise of the game, then how is the reader supposed to get invested?
Managed to just about scrape by with a 3/8 because the game wasn't terribly written or contain obnoxious jokes, and at least the author made the effort to include a couple of pics and a single puzzle to solve (if you can even call it that.)
So to sum up... I took this review way too seriously for a game that the author had so little investment in. I really should stop binging these 1/8 length games. They're rotting my brain. >.<

I got the jailed-but-not-eaten-by-cougar ending

I might be in jail for slaughtering cougars, but at least I wasn't eaten by one!
