So freaking good!!

I've purchased over 25 choice/hosted games over the last couple of years. Some were good, some were bad, some were ugly. Only three have managed to completely enchant and immerse me in the author's created world, and this is one of them. Quality writing, high replay value, and well developed, fully fleshed out characters made this one a joy. I commend the author for having the guts to include a controversial plot point with a certain professor. These are adult characters who find themselves in adult situations, and it's refreshing to see someone include a storyline like that instead of shying away from it for fear of being too risqué. I highly recommend this title, and can't wait for the sequel!

Make your own Adventure revisited

Years ago, this old man used to read these paperbacks that you read a page or two, then selected an option from the questions at the bottom of the page. Depending on your response, you turned to a wholly different page and found out the result of your choice. This is exactly the same, but deeper, with more options, results, and NO, you can't undo your choices, much like life. You must learn from mistakes and move forward. The underlying story is involved and allows you to make selections based on how you want to play your character. I cannot wait for the next installment.

A disappointment

Seeing all the rave reviews, I downloaded the game being a big fan of this type of game. However, as of now I cannot recommend the game. The game feels like one big set up for a sequel that's not out yet(while that is what it is, it does not stand on its own). Most of the choices are pseudo-choices, having no real impact or effect on anything. One egregious example of this is when you are making choice regarding how much you commit to seeing someone, and someone else Interrupts you, making the choice for you. There are also and insanely high amount of systems and stats at play here, many of which seem to serve no purpose, and I feel the writer will struggle to use these going forward. It's world seems decently realized, and the story is intriguing, but until decisions pay off in later games it is not recommended.
