    I’m still working through “And the Sun Went Out”, but it’s absolutely incredible so far! The plot and characters are extremely engaging, and it just keeps you wanting for more! There are consequences for your actions, which I definitely like. (Which is a low bar, but it really makes you want to choose the best option.) And I absolutely LOVE the LGBTQ+ inclusion! It made me so much more excited that it existed (and the fact that you didn’t even have to choose romance as an option as well)! There are choice tickets where you typically have to watch ads to get them, but I’m totally fine with that as, a. it’s a free app with free stories, and b. you can just keep watching ads to get more! The app works pretty smoothly and the format is neat and readable (though my only complaint is that you can’t go back a page to figure out what it said if you missed it or accidentally tapped twice). Otherwise, everything is really, really, good, and if you’re interested in choose-your-own-adventure stories, this is definitely one to pick!

    The stories are pretty interesting. I'm curious about the replay value. The writing varies. It sometimes feels as though some arcs are written by different writers and that can make it seem uncohesive. Also, I'm not sure they seem to finish? Overall I've spent a lot of hours playing through a story and keep coming back to it, so it is pretty enjoyable. Update: I'm still playing occasionally. I still think it's interesting and enjoyable, but story cohehesion leaves something to be desired.
  • One of the best choice-based games out there! Apr 28, 2021

    Many choice-based story games always seem to follow the same formula. Your choices never felt like they mattered and, in the end, they really didn’t. You always ended up at a same (or similar) ending, only slightly altered to fit some of the choices you’d made. But not this game. Every choice felt like it matter. Every little choice could, on one hand, save someone that you’d befriended. But that choice could also as easily get someone killed. It was a toss up and that’s what I liked so much about the stories in this game. It always has you on edge and makes you wonder if you’re making the decision. I’d definitely recommend giving this story game a go and play through each of the stories, especially if you’ve been looking for a ‘real’ choice based game for awhile. Also, I’d recommend purchasing the story pass. Not only does it make the experience a bit more enjoyable, but also allows you to support the developers and the writers who made this incredible game!

    Okay I always loved choose your own path stories, and I've always loved action books, and now I really love this game. Im still on the sun went out part. It's a good story game and there isn't enough games like this one. I play this game when im on my way to school. I have no idea when I'll finish all three, but oh well. Prompts on this game and story line!

    This is now my favorite app. I have just finished 'And The Sun Went Out', and I adored (and slightly hated) the ending. Though I could go into much detail and all the things I loved, I shall not spoil the ending for new comers to this lovely game. Though, I'm a wimp. I get really scared really easily. When I tapped on 'And their Souls were eaten' it said I had to be 13 or older to play this game. I'm 12. I'm slightly scared what I'll encounter when I start this next game when I turn 13. If I get nightmares (which doesn't happen often), I'm deleting the app, but overall, amazing game. I have a few issues to report. First: Sometimes I press a certain choice, and it does the opposite one. I was in a collapsing building and it gave me the option to save someone or run away. I chose 'Save someone', but it had me run away instead. I do not know if this is the actual consequence that happens, or it is actually a glitch. Second: You have spelled a few things wrong. Minor things, really, but I have noticed you spelled 'please' as 'pleaes' and 'on' as 'en'. Not that big a deal, though. This game makes the characters come to life. The wording is amazing, the choices are tough (especially in the end), and the whole aspect of the game is incredible. I am very much excited to be playing 'And Their Souls Were Eaten' and 'And Their Heroes Were Lost'. Great job, Tin Man Games!! ((Etienne and Moti 4 life.)) Sincerely, LupinLover15

    The first story has been an enjoyable reading adventures (purchased). One of the things I have truly enjoyed and appreciated was the fact of no swear words thus far. It feels rare, wholesome, and refreshing. I do wish there were one price for all stories and a price for all plus future stories. Keep up the good work and please continue to write swear free!

    I started playing “And The Sun Went Out” and I was absolutely ensnared by the captivating story! This game is absolutely fantastic! Never have I encountered a choices based game that was as friendly and reasonable as this one! This app never forces a negative outcome that I didn’t outright cause, like other similar games that punish you for being curious and making choices freely. This app builds a wonderful narrative and does not give all the information you want to know right away, I was left wondering who exactly my character was until I explored further in-game. I also extremely enjoy the ticket/choices function where you can wait for tickets or watch 15-30second ads for 3. This is a fantastic system and I can guarantee that I helped the developer’s ad revenue increase significantly! Overall, this is a wonderful app and I can’t wait to finish the first story and start the others!

    I'll start off with- wonderful game, good job! I didn't play too far in but it was quite intetesting. But! You need money (or to watch ads) to keep playing. I have no doubt that it's worth the money/time, but if you're not in the mood for that kind of thing, don't install.
  • My favorite CYOA game Nov 20, 2018

    By Jin's#1-lol
    This app is just perfect. It encompasses 3 stories right now. I read “and their heroes were lost” first before going back to “and the sun went out.” I love how you get so many choices. Sometimes, you don’t have the information to make an educated choice, and I love that because it’s how the situation would actually be in you were there. The writers really carve out a realistic and believable world for the stories. The music is suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I also loved the fact that you can watch a ton of ads to get 3 tickets which is very generous. Although some may say the interface isn’t developed enough as other episodic games, I actually love the simple interface more. It lets you concentrate on the story, the plot, and your imagination rather than cementing how people or situations look. I like a little imaginative space. Nothing but rave compliments for this app!! Definitely buy if you love CYOA games!

    Just finished reading "And the Sun Went Out". Absolutely phenomenal experience; I was tearing up at the end and everything. 😭 The choices really DO matter in this game, and no matter what ending you end up with there's a bunch of different ways to get there. Looking forward to reading "And Their Souls Were Eaten" next. (PS: I love Etienne.)

  • Overall very good Nov 12, 2020

    By lightyearhour
    1st story: I really like the Sun story. Pulled me in, and really liked the interaction between Moti and the main character. The ending I got I would consider very good. For a moment I thought it was not going to be good but I was able to turn it around. I will replay this story. 2nd story: it took a little bit to get hooked, but once I had a clear vision of the imagery, I was hooked! This was very interesting and honestly, someone should make a short movie about this. Out of the three, this story made me feel like every choice I made actually mattered. I think the ending I got was the most realistic ending. 3rd story: I liked the premise, and I was hooked instantly. The story dragged as I got into the middle, and found myself skipping through a lot of dialogue. Some of the choices in the middle seemed redundant or it would ask me to make a choice on events that didn’t seem impactful. I want to play it again and see if I get a better ending. Edit: just finished my 2nd play through of the 3rd story. It really takes you for a ride. And what makes this one stand out is that it takes you on a wildly different journey than the first playthrough. I think I got a good ending but it ended so abruptly! I will play again and see if I can save all of camp amnesia.

    I'm am hooked, absolutely can't put my phone down. Im curious how long the stories are, I have been reading one for over a month in my spare time, and have yet to come to the end, and not bothered by it all. Currently reading 'and their souls were eaten' and am so emotionally invested that I feel like I am the character. Greatly written and addicting.

    Still in first story, but it's very imteresting. I apparently tend to make choices that few others do so Im very curious what happens with the other choices. A few flaws but nothing major. Definitely recommend!

    Finished the first two stories. The Sun Went Out was excellent, I really felt that my choices mattered and the story was interesting. No complaints here. Their Souls Were Eaten was an absolute disaster. Don't even waste your time with it, nothing makes sense. Several choices clearly had no impact and the game forces you to take a certain direction. The ending was terrible. You could tell that this one was half-baked. And stop being so stingy with the tickets. Very annoying.

    By Sara Douglas
    Very good story game with many paths as it says, although the game will force you onto routes and withholds choices from you almost every time there's a choice on where to go, or who to go to. For the first act of each story you can brute force yourself to a completely different route with new settings, but the late part of the 2nd act forces you to make a loop towards the main act. Writing is excellent though, would love to see more about Nox and the Soul path in another game/continuation?

    Very indepth plot and (to a reasonable degree) everything seems to add up. I appreciate the thought that went in to this, but I have a Complaint. At the end of the storyline("And Their Heros Where Gone") I ended up at what must have been somewhere that everyone ends up at, (25%)for sure. But, I was severely disappointed when the story ended on a cliffhanger! PLEASE FIX!! If storyline is continued then I will rate 5⭐ Very Agitated!!
