This game is about a bad, bad, very bad not good at all dream. The story is by my little brother, Gerard, and I made the links and edited some of it.

You know, just because your brother does something stupid doesn't mean you have to put it on display all over the internet.

I'm pretty sure the only reason to game has survived this long is because it requires a LOT of clicking to reach the End Game link through all the railroading and forced looping. Most readers would've just given up in disgust.

I installed an escape hatch on the first page and now a few others can express their opinion about it before I unpublished it tonight.

I didn't like it. First, there was no actual choices for the player. It just loops over and over again until you pick the choice that the author wants you to pick. Seriously? What is the point of the storygame then?
Secondly, it lacks description. No backstory, no reason of all the events that happen... it was just a mess of unmeaningful words.
Thirdly, the grammar and punctuation. Question marks turn into fullstops and the choices are questions! It is such a mess!
Please put more effort into your storygames. 1/8

Fucking terrible. You should've killed your brother before he had the chance to write this.

That is all I can think of to describe this game. Horrible grammer, and choices that don't even make sense

That was almost insufferable.

Wow. That was a bit confusing.

What just happened?

Would appreciate some more options and some more correlation between pages. Enjoyed that road system, though. Pretty hazardous place.

So, the game's like Groundhog day where if you do something wrong, you wake up again with your wife yelling at you to go to work, and the good ending is... You wake up again with your wife yelling at you to go to work :p
