an interactive fiction written for Ludum Dare 37 (Theme: One Room)

about a copyright-compliant version of everyone's favorite yellow dot hero, but when he's all grown up


* 5000+ words of interactive fiction goodness!
* 10 different endings! (Plus one hidden bonus ending!)
* Language that may not be suitable for younger audiences!
* Subtle and not-subtle references that tribute the original arcade game, but not necessarily funny in a 'laugh-out-loud' sort of way, more that a tiny voice in your head might note that it's a little bit clever.

Amazing story telling, it really pulled me right in. It didn't feel like a wall of text as is the case too often with these kind of games.

Only thing wrong was the font. I don't know if there was a selected font, but it probably wasn't installed on my linux system and my systems default font is hard to read in this context. Maybe import the font from google fonts or somewhere next time :)

Got some laughs out of it. It seems some of the choices to go with Missy break on successive run throughs. DOTS!

10/10 would get out of the reunion the easy way again.

Interesting story. Good storytelling! Some music would help a lot settling the mood. Also, sometimes, the ''Missy'' option wasn't available.

Clever writing. I ended up drinking too much, messing things up for everyone, and leaving feeling pretty damn proud of myself :P

I honestly didn't think I'd enjoy reading that as much as I did, but you did a great job!

Wow! Just Wow!
I really got into the story. I am not going to play it more than once, I got my story and I'll tell my friends to play it and see which path they take. Congratulations! This is a piece of art!

Fun idea, I am pretty sure I played through all of the possibilities, though it was shorter than I had expected, so I may have missed one. Clide (I think his name was) was cool, I liked him. My old friend was a complete a-hole though... Why would I have made friends with him in the first place???

Cool game though, made you think!
