Comments: Excellent presentation. Diverging storlyines actually give this replay value! Not too serious, but I could identify with the main character, so it felt important.

Comments: In a multiple-choice story where there's nothing like "gameplay" or "puzzles" to carry it, well-written prose is pretty important, and this was just clunky and not fun to read in a way that the short writing time doesn't excuse. There seem to be a fairly impressive number of branching paths and possible endings, but I didn't enjoy reading it enough to want to see them.

Comments: I'm a sucker for choose-your-own-adventure so I was really into this at the start, especially with some solid writing creating a surprisingly dark mood, but the problems that a three-hour time limit create don't take long to reveal themselves as the writing gets progressively sloppier and sillier as it goes along and each ending you get is unsatisfying. Nice to play something with no guess-the-verb though!
