Beautiful storybook feeling, the art is wonderful, and the dialog delightful. There are several really quality touches, like the background, status meter, and use of sound, which all heighten the experience.

I managed to get two very different endings, and I'm certain there's more still to find. Even familiar dialog was just as fun the second time, and if I weren't trying to hastily write feedback, I'd still be playing it now.

This is a story I would recommend to a friend, or even arrange a live reading of. 

This was really good, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I actually felt some anxiety as I was making my choices.   Well done.

This was entirely excellent. Great dialogue and narrative, interesting choices. And I managed to make it through on the first try.

"Huh, this kind of reminds me of that RPG I'm looking forward too. This was really well written, let's see what else the author has written..."

"Oh!"

This was great. Just the perfect simple set-up and well written.

Amazing entry. The perfect bite-sized interactive fiction

Good fun! Although not a category, I appreciate the effort in sound and presentation.

I loved the little musical flourishes and the inline artwork. This was so well done!

My favourite game of the jam so far, I was compelled to try it a number of times. I also like that you used this as an opportunity to talk about how debates can't really happen when there is a power imbalance. This polish and overall aesthetic was great too.

Thoroughly enjoyed this brief, high stakes branching conversation game. High level of polish and all the prose and dialogue felt great. Now I need to play again and see if I can avoid being eaten this time...

+1!
