It's a monstrosity.

There's no consistent plot to this at all. Your sister is apparently dead, I guess, and you just have these potions. You turn into an animal for like three seconds then do nothing else with it. There's no point to it at all. You find the body of Patrick Ollins, who's never mentioned before, but apparently you know him by name. Then you're all of a sudden searching for his murderer? Also, when you're searching the wallet, you find the ID of Jamie. Who is Jamie?

Nothing makes sense here and this is not a story at all.

The grammar was very bad, and I thought that the story was difficult to navigate, only plus side is the use of items

To Win:

Take the potions and use the Animal one. Transform into and animal for no goddamned reason at all except the author is a furry, click the only link you can click until you're told to use the Human potion.

Take the items. Don't bother looking at them. You won't need them for anything, but you must have them all for the link to MOVE ON to appear. Click that.

Apparently you're supposed to identify a murderer now. Nothing was ever said about a murder but okay.

Don't worry about talking to any of these people, just go to pick the murderer and then go down the list of names until you win. The End.

So to recape: You drank a potion that turned you into an animal, walked down the street to reach a building, drank a potion that turned you back into a human. Picked up some random things you found lying around, and entered a room full of people to randomly accuse them of murder. No further context was given. There is no story here.

I apparently gave this a 1/8 years ago, but still feel like that was nowhere near harsh enough. This wouldn't last a day if published today.

Mousepaw is somewhat legendary for her cringe even when we're talking 2014, a year of nothing but. So there's that, if you're browsing the site for historical research purposes.

A good story. I like how easy it was to finish, and how the facts were put in a succinct, list-like manor. Short, but still good.

This is a pretty good start. The plot is not too developed, but I like the murder mystery concept.
