Come on sleepy head!, your brother yells, Wake up and start life! Might have copied a bit from A Dogs Life by Ann M. Martin. You'll see later, but living with Thorn is more exciting!

...This was alright, I guess. The grammar was fine, for the most part, but that's the only positive thing I can say about it. Really, this game is just boring.

The main problems I had with it were;
-The game tends to force you into decisions, especially during the "Thorn Decides to Leave You" thing. If you choose to live alone, it'll tell you that you changed your mind- and to me, this is just lazy.

-If you choose to play tag after your mother leaves, you'll be brought back to the "See the World" (I think that's what it's called? eh i dunno) page. This was, hopefully, a mistake.

In the end, this game deserves it's 3/8, and that's what I'm giving it. It's not the worst thing ever, but it's not great, either. It's just sort of meh.

Extremely linear for the majority of the story. Being asked about whether I'm male/female near the end is just weird; you probably should have put it near the beginning, or not at all. It doesn't seem to have much of a plot or direction. 2/8.

One of the things I noticed was the fact that you open you're eyes in the first page, yet, a few links later, you open them again for the first time. I really don't get this, or if I misread it, but I'm confused.
Later on, when you 'Move out', you seem to be forced to live with Thorn. It seems like it's a cheap way to publish it and continue working on that link branch. I also noticed that you had to be male to really progress much further. Add the lack of choice and description, overall, I give it a 2/8.

A cute storygame. Short and simple, but I don't think you understnad how dogs work. I sense that you may have taken some inspiration from Warriors with this story but usually puppies in a litter have very similar coloring; plus green eyed dogs are either non-existent or extremely rare.

I didn't like how you made it dramatic for the boy but not for the girl it was a bit unfair don't you think
