I've decided to write a longer comment because I want to make sure people see a few details. First, This was cute. It was funny and showed what the basics used to be, and for the most part holds up. This story is a relic and should be treasured. It also answers the long asked question of "where is Killa_Robot's toaster?"
More importantly though, this needs an overhaul to serve its original purpose. Currently its an oddity of a bygone age.
Choices are hyperlinks now. There are no Treasure Chests,
There are no Folder Tabs, The game start button no longer says, "Play This Game!" So on,
It does a great job still, of showing cute features like unclickable LINKS, in game items, and pictures, including animated ones.

This is by far the most incredible story I've seen so far. For the first time in all my 40 years as a renowned CYOA critic, a career that's rightfully led to my nickname in the business- "The Cynical Bastard"- I have no criticism to give. As for my praise, well...
The setting was perfect, picking sophisticated elements from a wide variety of genres to be all inclusive for all readers and obviously represent the value of multifaceted society. I personally was thrilled to find aspects of Fantasy and, among my all time favourites, hints of Taiwanese history and non-fictional cooking recipes. How such a diverse range of intrinsically vital commentary on human life has been covered in an impressive 943 words, I have no idea.
The characters were all excellently fleshed out and really made this story for me. Each and every one felt like a real person, leaping to life with their very actions without having to even say a word, testimonious to your unadulterated familiarity with anthropology. Not only did I form a profoundly close attachment to the toaster, but the French baker was the perfect metaphor for the excessive consumerist society we live in. Bravo.
Moving on from the characters, development of the latter was undeniably rife throughout the whole thing, punctuating each choice the reader makes to emphasise the importance of choice, a quintessential foundation of the CYOA genre, and beautifully painting the whole story in flecks of stark realism amid the fundamentally surreal je ne sais quoi perspective it begins with.
Furthermore, the plot had me on the edge of my seat and kept me entertained for hours as I desperately searched for every possible route, paling the comparatively petty works of modern raconteurs in its complex, yet easily followed, nuances. Truly, this story speaks of both a masterful grasp on the English lexicon and a thorough comprehension of how to tell a tale that really touches on every aspect of modern human condition, culture, politics, philanthropy, sociological constructions, and philosophy. I was stunned.

It's certainly cute, but a bit outdated. Also, it's nearly summer of 2023 (only a month off) or it already has been in the northern hemisphere, and we still don't get our items popping out of our computer?

So, it’s the summer of 2023. Where’s the toaster delivery system?

Playing through as I hadn't bothered before and wanted to experience the heralded majesty for myself.
This game, perhaps more than any other I have played, lives up to it's summary and name. With an applaudable scarcity of words and needless description, it cuts like a literary knife through the dross of useless tutorials. It's concise presentation of "How To Play A Game" would be difficult to top.
The only thing that brings the luster of this gem down is that the actual text, particularly for the first few pages, is littered with exceptionally outdated references and indicators for elements that are no longer part of the interface. It is impressive that the options and steps still function so smoothly and that is a testament to the stability and support provided by the site for CYA authors.

Quite useful, although it does need to be brought up to date with the current site functionality. I am interested to see the delivery service promised for this summer.
