Interesting idea for a game. The graphics are nice, though some illustrations of the events would be welcome. I think there could be a bit more variation in the way the stories play out - it would add more replayability and reinforce the "game of chance" concept.

really love the very important message conveyed in this game. i couldn't help but wonder to what degree the developer researched statistical data. not that that is necessary, just an interesting possibility to present stats contextualized into a CYOA. Great work, to the point and with a good feel!

Liked the theme and the length felt right. The stories were interesting and I did a few playthrough with my kids. They were a little put off that it didn't seem possible to "win." :-)

Really liked how this game deals with the themes, the subjects are not the lightest ones, but the way the game dealt with them all was really nice, and it leaves a good message to everyone too! :)

Very awesome and a great point. To be fair I would've used my army of chickens to take over the world so I'm going to pretend my ending was different.

Really nice story! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Thanks for playing my game. I understand the comments about the font now. The font is not supposed to be displayed like that, what browser are you using ?

I am using Google Chrome on a Windows pc.

Thanks, I will fix this after the gamejam's results

Great game idea, it is really cool to play a  game that made us think, I loved this stories inside the game, although some were too dramatic, but that is what life is sometimes... too dramatic =p. 
Overall is a great concept with a cute art and a good music, one unique game for sure, great job !


* I think that maybe the font could be a different one, the one you used was hard to see

Well done guys, interesting concept and good story telling. I can third the comment about the grey in the text. I would've liked to see some more of the stories played out in pictures.

Thank you I plan on changing the font after the jam to make it more readable. ("Well done guys" Ahah, I was the only one working on this game.)

good concept :)

Echo the comment of the below comment-er, the gray and white text was difficult to read. I enjoyed the positive message this game imparts on the player!

Great game, though I think the text would be much easier to read without the gray areas it.  Other than that, I loved the art and various stories.
