Editorial Reviews

The A.V. Club

As a game, itís simple but novel enough given the context, and it works hard to avoid wasting your time.... Once the novelty wears off, though, the emptiness is hard to ignore.

The Hollywood Reporter
The interactive choose-your-own-adventure aspect is initially interesting, then time-consuming and ultimately not dramatically satisfying.

An interesting take on 4th wall breaks, January 9, 2019

This piece applies a Black Mirror lens onto choose your own adventure. It is very intriguing. Definitely worth a try if you have Netflix. However, the biggest appeal is the novelty.
