This was quite quirky and humorous in all honesty. I honestly didn't know there were so many potential ways to acquire music, so this was definitely quite a learning experience too.

My only real nitpick is that I think that more could've been added to this storygame, like maybe even meeting the artist herself? Just small little things like that could've made this a bit more fun to play, but it wasn't like the writing wasn't serviceable by any means. It was and this was certainly good for some laughs and learning some things about the internet.

Grammar etc. was fine but a bit more actual story would have been appreciated.

Was 'visit a record store' really a thing people were still doing in 2012? This also really overstates the difficulty and 'risk' of just downloading a song IMO. It may have been better to focus on the more legitimate reasons not to do it. (out of respect for an artist and other fans, how widespread piracy hurts the economy, etc.)

Heh, this book was very fun. Loved how you wrote it, and the format was amazing. You didn't disappoint me at all. This is one of my favorite games now! XD

Well I've learned more about pirating music. What an educational CYOS.

I'd like to thank this author for inspiring me to illegally download more music than ever before.

I didn't like this. At all.

What can I say? At least it's educational... there is some nice humor too. I think I took the path of least resistance and played it safe so there wasn't much of a threat in my read through.

The switch-up between humor and technicality was...uh...interesting, I suppose. I don't understand anything about those web things, but the humor part was pretty good.

Never listened to Taylor Swift (always thought it was a guy haha) but it was an amusing game overall. 4/8
