Thanks for the comments everyone.

@Gritfish - Thanks, and thank you for all the mentions on twitter! Despite finishing in 25th place overall, I've still had a lot of good comments on it from a lot of people so this had been a great experience!

I totally agree about the only choice in the game being a very blind choice, but alas.. time was short and man, nobody told me drawing comics was so time-consuming! :o

I might go and add a tiny bit of variation and branching, maybe give you a bit more authority towards the end there, now that the Jam is over. I've already gone and fixed the dreadfully slow server problems and I'll continue to try and fix some other stuff (eg. making the images load immediately at the start, so they don't pop in during play)

Anyway, thank you all and thanks Gritfish for making this jam! My first time jammin', and it was a great experience. :D

I think I've been singing this one's praises since you uploaded it. While personally, I don't like the way the win/loss scenario is decided by a choice you make blindly (I do acknowledge it IS a common fairy-tale device and so it still fits well) the execution is flawless - if you set out for a Mignola-style one-shot comic, you nailed it.

Great story and artwork, I'm impressed.

Great artwork, played 2 different ends of the game and liked them both. Good job!

Really great art

Excellent artwork, guy really knows his Mignola!  This is a nice format for the Choose-Your-Own adventure comic; I hope more indies follow your lead!

5/5 from me, really innovative and amazingly drawn.

Never seen twine comic - love the idea. I included it in part 5 of my Public Domain Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look :) http://youtu.be/_BCTeiOyGDE

I really like the interpretation of the story. Extrapoints for keeping the original title. (and your illustrations are obviously awesome ;) )
