A well made short game, but is it actually short? No, as you play it over and over again, taking different combinations of pills, you see how this mix will change your life.

I like this concept, testing out what happens if you take just one more of this color. Will it get you the threesome with your ex? Does it change your relations to your coworkers? ...

It's an interesting one. A walkthrough would be nice, but I understand it might ruin the suprise. Either way, I hope this one gets finished.

Simple and entertaining. Despite the author's doubts I believe this counts as a game. It's pretty short, but has a high replayability.

Even in its current unfinished state, this is a unique and fun little game that's worth playing for anyone interested in the TF genre. It's great how organically the main character and the world around them reacts to the changes you put them through. I particularly enjoy the quality of the players avatar, and how every possible situation is covered with unique text.

There's even some really satisfying trial-and-error gameplay. There's oodles of secret interactions and mechanics to combining pills for you to discover as you experiment. Both the story and the gameplay function off of a consistent internal logic that gives the game a relaxing, structered feeling. 

The whole game has a clear professionalism to it. Even right now at version 0.2, it feels more complete and polished than most finished games on the site. I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

It's short and simple.  

What's good is that it shows potential from the creator.  This is a pretty decent start; the story is very finite and they're getting a hang for variable choices and outcomes from really simple inputs.  And the english is actually really, not perfect, but much better than we see from quite a lot of creators which is very commendable.  I can only be so critical because I would be hopeless trying to write a compelling story in any other language.

A quick and fun little romp. As stated by the creator, it's short, like just a lotta short. However, if you're looking for something and got that tf bug, this fits the bill nicely. I look forward to further development.
