This is friggin good and sounds like really similar lol
Except it's... Chinese? I really don't know
Also (should have said it first but) I really freaking liked your novel, using Bitsy to create an interactive story the way you did is really cool.
You also introduced me to the cool booklet and I now figured out that A Series of Unfortunate Events is goth lol
I read that series when I was like 11 years old and thought it was kind of a weird story for kids.
