Unique concept. I never really felt like I knew what was going to happen on any given choice, maybe it would be nice to know ahead of time what stats will be rolled against, but it's okay to discover it yourself over time. Also liked the scenarios you wrote. Nice work!

Interesting and funny, but would have liked for it to last a bit longer and have more story to experience.

Nice and funny little game. It could have been a little longer but other than that good job!

Interesting, although seemed quite random to me.

The writing is interesting there, but it was indeed quite short.

Good writing, good humor. I am not a big fan of the roll-die-to-die-haha gameplay though.
Would love to play a version that lasts a little longer, because I really enjoyed the writing and the premise.

Nice idea with a role-playing-experience, but the UI and instructions made it hard to grasp at first. Good humor :)

Interesting, but quite difficult!

Quite enjoyed the writing and the humor! I personally would prefer knowing in advance the stat to roll against, but all in all, I like the game and would want to play a longer version.

Okay that was funny. The trial-and-error trying to guess what stats to use was fun. Telling us the consequences beforehand would just make the game even more random.

Died four times (one of those times was insta-death on the launch pad, haha), and survived once. Very humorous! I wasn't sure if I saw a scenario where STR came into play... A longer adventure would've been nice, but overall this was enjoyable for what it was. Good job!
