At first I was worried that the narrator was going to take over and dominate the story, but you managed to rein it in for most of it. I found Part 1 the strongest, where the humour really came out in the dialogue between the Intern and the bigwig. IMO the best details of the world were shown through dialogue as well, which isn't easy to do. Liked the scene with the one-way mirror accusation. Pretty impressive work given the time limit!


That was a blast! (Or not, if you didn’t press that button)

I adore this ironic atmosphere – I just love deciding on people’s destinies in a totally not serious narrative, so was hooked immediately and laughed a lot!

Very nice work, thanks, Leader bless you!


Kind of a whirlwind of worldbuilding and dark humor.  I dig it!


Loved your world building and the atmosphere you created in this game. 


This somehow reminded me of 1984 in some ways. I loved it! Now, I have to see what are the other possible endings.

I enjoyed it! The world and story was interesting to me, and I liked how ur story felt like I was peeking at a complete world. In a way, it reminded me of the Soviet dude who refused to hit the missile button when it seemed like missiles were flying in to hit the USSR.

I really loved how every different person had a different color. All the colors stood out nicely against the black background. 


Neat concept! I liked the familiar premise of being the guy who has to make a horrible choice, but the freaking-out media team was a fun twist.


I enjoyed the anticipation through this one! Love the idea and the world building you managed to integrate in such a short time. I had to go back and try the second option, too :) 


Neat premise. Didn't expect to be taking the point of the media so much. main complaint? The exclamation point exists for good reason! I personally find it more comfortable to look at then lines of capitalized text! Otherwise? Worth a read.
