Could be MUCH better

Storylines are very short. Just as it starts to get interesting, the story ends abruptly, and changing your choices has relatively little effect on the storyline. On multiple playthroughs with different choices selected, I only discovered three different endings, all quite grim. Additionally, there are very few choices in total per storyline. Interesting world building, competent graphics and sound, but falls far short of its potential. I would say the writing and short length are its main downfalls.

Additionally, once you complete a main storyline, the app is overly insistent in asking for a 5-star review, to the extent you have to click 'No' on three increasingly pointed screens before it will accept your response. Not cool.

Reminiscent of the PBS “Dr. Who” series. Great depth in the story but as others have said .. comes to an ending too soon
I will read it with different options and see how things change but it will likely still be very short.
Good job on the story line.

A great story, and creative endings, but it would be much better if it was longer.
