Background is murder on the eyes.

Was quite interested in playing this game. It has potential but, has one issue with it that kept me from exploring too deeply.

The text is written both in the third person past and first person past tense; tense is shifted from paragraph to paragraph. This is a  bit jarring. In a game like this, the player is either supposed to follow a character or become the character. Also, the past tense, for me, pushes me out of the game experience and into simple reading.

I'd recommend chaning the tense from past to present and making the whole thing first person. This would create a more immersive experience.

I'll keep watching with interest.

I also liked it. Especially the Casino. I see a lot of potential but now there are too much death endings to really get into the story.

House of Cards you need to download the .html file it links to then run it using your brower of choice.



Anywhosit, the game itself is enjoyable, especially when the game seemed to become vexed with you for not doing what it said you were to do. Very enjoyable!

There were a number of small, almost insignificant errors regarding words, but that can be forgiven due to the games recent creation.


I've only played through a couple of times so far, but it looks like it'll have a lot of potential if given the right care and time!

A pretty decent start to a game. Only found a few spelling errors. Umping?

All in all, better than some games out there, but as is, I wouldn't give it any awards. For my taste the game jumps around and transitions without warning. Bad ends come are strangely found.


If there was more fluidity to the game, which may come in future iterations, I would score this better. Seeing as this is basically a first draft, I'll reserve final judgement until much later when we have had a chance to see where this is really going.


Thank you for making the game, however.
