Okay, so first ... the bad. This is not a game; it's a story. No choice the player makes will cause the story to deviate from the single path the author has chosen. And I know this because I've looked at the code. EVERY choice you make leads, eventually, to the same result. So: Not. A. Game.

Again (and again, and again, and again), having to click a lot of links in order to get through a story does not make it a "game." In order to create a game, you at the VERY least need a couple of different paths. Different choices need to give the player different endings. In order to have a good game, you not only need different pathways, you need to have at least one "win state" and at least one "loss state." Every actual game, from the simplest (tic-tac-toe, I guess?) to the most complex (various tabletop role playing games moderated by human beings as opposed to programs) has at least one of each. From the coding thus far, this is hot going to happen.

It kind of annoys me that the author has advertised it in the description and in the game's intro as a "game/story" when it is absolutely just a story. I like stories, but not when they're advertised as games.

And the premise of the story is in itself ludicrous, to the point of unbelievablility. Some sinister medical and psychological manipulation cartel (you really can't just call it a company when it goes to such unethical-and-probably-illegal lengths to entrap unsuspecting young men) employs a pizza guy to "recruit" young men to be feminized and sissified? And this pizzeria owner somehow has the contacts necessary to dig up dirt that was undoubtedly placed under a nondisclosure agreement in an out-of-court settlement? And the idiot MC (I hate playing idiot characters ...), despite this out-of-court settlement that would without question have included a nondisclosure agreement by his "victim," (pheh) somehow feels so threatened by this pizza clown that he agrees to something he absolutely did not want to do, despite having been described by his creepy pizza boss as a "perfect subject?"

What. Utter. Nonsense.

As to the good, well ... there isn't much of it. But if you can get past the moronic premise of the story, and ignore the fact that it's not a game, it's mildly entertaining. And as a counter to what maiconneo said in his/her review, there are plenty of hot and completely appropriate pics and gifs.

I did not enjoy this as a game, and as a story it is seriously ... perhaps fatally ... flawed. But it does have some entertainment value. Take that as you will.

simply but good, Too bad it has little content and few choices, if you like a lot of gifs and images this may not be your game, but you managed to finish it quickly so it's worth testing!
