short but very strong...you have excellent writing skills! You delivered all the information i needed to understand the scenario and make decisions as the mc in a very short amount of words! And it was all a pleasure to read too. 

The premise of the story is really intriguing...if u ever decide to expand upon it, id totally read that owo

Oh my gosh, thank you very much! Yes, I am thinking of revisiting this after the jam is over to just give it a bit more content or otherwise, I'm not yet sure. But if inspiration strikes, I am definitely not opposed to expanding the universe.

Thank you for trying it out!

Beginining is very strong. From abstract to material in a few sentences, I really liked it, and this is those very first words that will decide if I read to the end (and I did)(or maybe I did because someone somewhere prophetized I would ?)(wait...)

Developer

Oh my, this made me chuckle! And I appreciate the feedback! Really glad you liked it (all the way to the prophesied end).

Ohhhhhhhhhh I've been wanting to check this one for a looooong while now!!!!  And it really did not disappoint now that I really got to it!!

It feels like Good Omens in a way? A way that I really dig?? And the way the Gods just roll their eyes "YEAH SURE FIRE, WHATEVER!!!". I guess they were just testing you, to see what you'd do...

I am fine with this outcome 100% -u- Let it come! I'll see what I can do with my 75 years.

Yes, achievement "Disappointment Averted" get! LMAO Kidding aside, thank you for checking it out! Your comment has me hyped. (A lot can happen with 75 years. A good lot.)

Submitted

I was intrigued, until the last line from the higher power.  Then, I was grinning madly.  Oooh, I loved that last line.  Nice build-up to a fantastic conclusion!

Developer

Oooh! I'm curious now as to which one you got. Glad you liked it! Thanks for playing!

Submitted

I wish there were proper spoiler tags but here it goes: It was the one where the higher power goes "Fine, no apocalypse today" or something like that.  I loved that little hissy fit.  xD

Developer

LMAO, yes! They didn't like that their whims were not catered to. Tsk tsk.

This is really cool! I love the abstractness of it. It's very... fatalistic (in a good way)! 

Developer

Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you liked it!

Submitted

A couple compelling choices that made me want to go back and try again, especially the "higher power" spectrum one. Very cool.

Developer

Oh gosh, thank you! Glad you liked it. I really tried for variation there, so I'm glad it came through.

Submitted

What a cool premise. I dig that you went very abstract with the theme, it's a very unique take. And I love prophecy stories that twist your expectations. They're such a perfect match for this kind of storytelling. Nice work!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it. I also dig stories that put that twist on the prophecies, and this was a good opportunity to give it a try.

Submitted

This turned out really well! The premise was neat and I think this was probably the best prose of any entry I've read so far? Great job!

Developer

Oh my goodness, thank you very much! I'm glad that you think so!

Submitted

I love the premise and I think this could be something exciting! Also, your writing style was very easy to follow and flowed nicely. I wish there was more :D

Developer

Oh! Thank you so much for the feedback! I appreciate it.

Submitted

Ooh, a little eerie! I really enjoyed the writing on this one. (also, great title!)

Developer(+1)

Thank you, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Submitted

There's something really cool started here, and the writing style is compelling and makes me want to invest my time in. I wish there was more to it! 

Developer

Thank you so much for trying it out! Honestly, I had a bit more ideas to add to it, but unfortunately, I couldn't figure out how to execute them and add them in time. I might revisit after the jam. But in any case, thank you again! I appreciate the feedback!
