This is an absolutely beautiful game.
However, I see some grammar/typing mistakes in it, which detract a lot.

I also don't particularly like this type of game. But that was fun. :D

Yeah, sorry for the few mistakes, I hadn't uploaded the latest zip because I was switching to Dropbox to have a "Web" version ! There shouldn't be mistakes in that one.

I could play it at work and it looked like I was working :)

Interesting concept, but a few complaints: I didn't necessarily want to enter the cave after reading the sign (not like I had a choice anyways) and the sign made no sense in context (although I'm amused that I'm not the only person to reference that phrase in their game). In general, descriptions seemed to be lacking- there was often reference to objects whose existence was not declared (although this seemed to get better further in). The death counter amused me, but it seemed easier to just choose "wrong" (since they allow reload) than to try to go as long as possible without dying. I got all 8 deaths. Also, yay Nyan cat!

YES. Cat ending <3
A pretty good text adventure. I disliked how closed it seemed- whenever you made a wrong turn it just spat you back to the correct place, and sometimes there was only one option. But it was still a good adventure, and I think it was a nice touch how the background colour changed with the environments. You hardly touched on the 'alone' theme, though.

Very creative use of background coloring to illustrate the player's location!

Loved the game. I believe I died in all the ways:
Gunpowder explosion
Snake bite
