This story game is about a person who is about to die going back and thinking of the life choices.

I'd like to thank Briar_Rose for giving me this idea.

Please enjoy Years Gone By.

So, eh... many problems.

First, how it was written. Some of the sentences were so bad they didn't have periods. Little to no commas, and every sentence is very separated when you can tell them apart at all. For this, I would suggest reading some books like Harry Potter, just to see how they are written. Grammar was OK, but, like always, it could definitely be better.

Second, pages and the choices. They were very short, and there were hardly any choices. The girl or boy choice only changed one page, and that was hardly at all. The other choices did nothing to the story, and, all in all, I would just write a short story about it since there aren't many. I would suggest just trying to make every (or almost every) choice make a difference, and putting some effort into it. I know that in many stories people do this, but that is mainly to develop it.

Third, there is no way not to lose. Not the other way around like the Story Difficulty says. Again, the choices made no difference to the end. Sorry this one was short. There's just not much to elaborate on.

Fourth, no background or detail. Could you, maybe, have explained how you looked? Maybe what the person did on Facebook? Possibly you could have at least made up a pet or done something with school. You could have done a whole thing about a curse history with Ana if you wanted to. Please add more detail, and to put it a different way, this story could have much more meat on it's bones.

But now the good things. You are probably better at writing by now. If you don't write like this anymore, don't take anything in this seriously. This has potential of a much greater background, if you cared to un-publish it and edit more in.

I hope you put some effort into using my tips, because it took effort to write this review.

Sad story, I really liked this. Scary at the same time.
Make more like this!

Not enough choices. Spelling/grammar issues make difficult reading at times. Let it branch out more...

This story surprised me when Ana (friend) attacked me and killed me in the end.
Anyway, this story is very good, I liked the past lives and decisions you made in this story.
But I am thinking this story is short, you need to add more pages and more words to the pages, and then it will be a good is story.
(Of course do some photos and do proof read)
Final rating: 4/8

Very well-written, proper grammar and the works, which is always nice to see. I liked it, but was slightly confused. But definitely recommend.

That story was understandable and felt like it led to something good but the ending was quite pointless and your decisions do nothing
