Thank you very much for the kind words! I love mixing up genres, in games and books alike. Still wondering what to call this one, because it may be text-based and play like a CYOA game, yet it's hardly interactive fiction. Perhaps just "adventure", in the old sense of the word from before game genres had become so compartmentalized.
And you're right. Other people also complained that it's unclear if there's an end to reach, hence the brief instructions I added to the game page. A future version will make those more prominent and clear. Speaking of which: I have grand ideas for bigger and better sequels that will have a lot more content, therefore a lot less repetition.
Until then, however, can't wait to see your own next game. Cheers!
