Welcome to my game!
Ok. I accept that maybe I am not bright enough to understand the logic behind this story-game but it was incomprehensible on so many levels. You have used the story of the famous Jules Verne book (which in the original text I have found unreadable) and used it to pose a series of ethical questions which have basically nothing to do with the realistic experiences of travelling through these countries.
When at any stage of a tourist's journey through India would we be required to know which stage of the demographical model it is on? How on earth is your average person expected to know how the Grameen Foundation has helped empower women in India? As someone who has worked in Asia with people from North Korea I can tell you the dilemma of whether you travel official or secretively in the country doesn't arrive at all: you either travel with a tourist company escorted by government officials or you don't travel at all.
I'm afraid I do not understand this at all; if you reposted this as a humanities quiz perhaps it would be in the correct genre. I am not sure that you have ever been to any of the places you are writing about. You used the Advanced Editor and your spelling and grammar was good (except the links were too long so we could not read the full and lengthy moral dilemmas proposed by travelling) but I did not understand what sort of story this was at all :(

Educational, but could be more interesting.

This cyoa game is difficult to follow. None of the choices seem very good. I only made it to the second country.

I found this interesting. I didn't exactly understand the second question because the answers were weirdly cut off. The concept of using the Jules Verne around the world topic to teach about corruption would have worked better if you had actually given the correct answer to the questions and educate people.

Fun if you want to do something educational, but I just clicked random buttons. Good game to spend on your free time.

I’m going to be honest and say I just clicked random links after the first few pages to get to the end because I was not at all interested in what the story/quiz was talking about.
There are a lot of ways to make educational games fun and this is not one of those ways. The different sizes of text being hard to read plus the random facts that were hard to read just lost me overall.
There was a severe lack of interest on my part because I felt like I was playing jeopardy but this was somehow more boring because at least I know some of the obscure facts they were talking about in that show.
I felt like I was going through textbook review questions and was not remotely interested in the writing.

I can see where the author was trying to go, but, between the oversimplified premises and the tonal shifts, I have a hard time meeting them there. I think that making more effort to connect the theory and the practice would be beneficial.

Frankly, this game reads like it was compiled from the annual reports of an NGO rather than any real-life experience in the countries you supposedly "travel" through.
Furthermore, there is an embedded arrogance throughout where the foreign visitor is expected to know "the truth" about every port of call, wherein that "truth" is some BS like "Microfinancing helps poor people in India" when, in reality, it led to thousands of suicides.
Avoid this game unless you're a pretentious academic wannabe interested in positing on something post-modern like "The Game Space as Analog to Social Development"
