This game has a very interesting format, I love how the story is told mostly in messages, popping out as though they were social network feeds. The music adds a lot to the story's atmosphere as well. Sure, the sceneries themselves are never seen, but that's not such a biggy, especially because this game was not made to have brilliantly polished graphics.

I like these "choose your own adventure" games, in which you have to make decisions to get the best possible ending, and man, this was a hard one, because even though the game is called "nobody has to die", in your first run, you have no choice but to make a few casualties happen, no matter what way you choose to do things, and it gets to be extremely, EXTREMELY sad at times, you monster :'(.

I like how instead of text choices, you have to decide what each person does and how each door behaves, and each passing turn, the fire spreads more, and you also need to trigger the water switch off in order to keep people from drowning, and all that. In the end, the "path" you choose depends exclusively on who lives and who dies in a turn, but the way it's done makes it a bit more, so to say, intense, since you have to choose who dies and then you have to make the thing that kills them happen, turn by turn (that is, unless you have a secret something that changes the rules of the game...).

I also love how the business the company runs is just something hilariously absurd, xD. Also, holy crap, some plot twists (which I won't spoil) are horrendously somber, and raise ethical questions over who deserves to live or die in such a situation. Creepy stuff. Also, I love this kind of story, where each ending reveals a bit more about the storyline.

Really clever game. I love the way you have taken the multiple ending concept of games and built a game where that is part of the mechanic. I wouldn't expect a game that is primarily a chat room to be so compelling. Really well written also. My only critique is that the graphics could be improved. They don't necessarily need to be more intricate, but they could have been treated in a cleaner way. Great game.
