A dark "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style interactive fiction game. Written by me, with art by the very talented Michael Swain.

This thing took forever to write, and I think I broke some blood vessels in my brain trying to keep all the parallel scenarios consistent with what can actually be changed via player choices. I hope you enjoy it -- feel free to leave comments about what you enjoyed and what sucks for if I decide to write another one later (yeah, I know, TL;DR... the full text is something like 80 pages, but there are plenty of other instantly fun games on the site).



I sat here for over an hour just reading all the possible endings. The story caught me by surprise with the darker turns and twists and Future Todd was interesting for me in the different roles he played depending on how you went through. By far I enjoyed the ending with Ashley and Todd at Clints wedding but even the darker endings were great. This is going into my favorites and I think I will revisit it often. 5/5 10/10 Tho one thing I wish was different, the truth about the ear piece might be hard for some people to gather but its not a big thing. Awesome job!

Storytelling at its best!

When first playing this game, I was thinking that it would be some kind of comedy where a future you comes back in time just to help you get that one girl. Although, as I go deeper into the story and run into a couple of the endings, I began to get intrigued more and more about this "Future Todd" and what he is really like.

This game has a great story with great characters in them and if you were to go through all the possible endings then you'll find that this game was a great read. The back button not only made it easier to get all the endings, but it also makes it feel like you are going back in time as well (which fits the time travel theme very well)

So great job and I hope to see more from you in the future!

Awesome game!

Wow Greg, this is definitely one of my favorite games ever! I love the plotline and all the different endings. You have a really creative mind. It's so extraordinary and unreal. This is definitely not your average Choose Your Own Adventure. A definite 10/10!
