    Good concept but... for a game about story, one would hope that they have a decent mastery of spelling and grammar. I am no expert on the English language, but, even I feel like I'm being yanked out of the attempted immersion at times due to said spelling errors, common writing pitfalls, and grammatical omissions and errors.

    While this is definitely not going to be everyone's cup of tea it does have a very enjoyable element to it and for me personally made me want to finish it.

    The big deal breaker for this kind of interactive novel is the story they choose to present and for me 39 Steps is a winner.
