A great teenage super-power game, September 5, 2020

This is definitely one of my favorite Choice of Games so far, for my personal tastes. It manages to make you feel powerful while forcing you to choose between competing goals, and has great options and fun writing.

It has a lot of mysteries and it has a character with psychic abilities, and both of those things are personal favorite genres of mine, so I think others may not have the same response I did. But I can definitely say I enjoyed it quite a bit!

You play as a clairvoyant teen in a high school where much of the student body has unusual powers which sprang up the year before. Other students look to you for investigating strange or missing things, and there is a general conspiracy.

It had a lot of good romantic options. One is kind of pushed on you (in regards to your feelings), but in a way that feels true to my experiences in high school, when your emotions and feelings are out of whack anyway.

One thing that I've noticed is that as I play more Choicescript games, I enjoy them more. A lot of them have similar rhythms and expectations, and it helps me strategize and find a way to enjoy them more. I would definitely put this game in my top 10 Choicescript games so far.

I received a review copy of this game.

A fun romp through teenage hormones, January 5, 2015

Overall, I enjoyed the game.

The writing was pretty decent, game choices and direction were diverse, and characters are for the most part believable. I used to read plenty of CYOA(Choose Your Own Adventure) books in my early childhood and this game helped me relive the fun that I used to have reading those so many years back. Lucky for me, this was written and created far better than some of those books I read so many years ago.

In the end, if you enjoy teen fiction, superheroes, or anything light hearted; you'll probably enjoy this game. It's not free, but if you find it on sale with Steam, it's a definite buy for any CYOA fan.

BUT--some things, like choices and direction seemed a bit forced in a couple moments.

Luckily for the game, there seems to be plenty of multiple endings and the story itself is pretty engrossing.

It's not the best IF on the market, but it's still fun. And that's what's matters. I'll probably play this again a few more times just to see what happens and mess with the stats and outcomes.

Rating: 8/10
