The Grim and I user reviews :

Fairly short and sweet story meditating on death and the world left behind. More linear than most CYOA stories, but it asks questions of the player more than the player character really. It’s also much bolder and more mature in its premise than most. The novel has a quite simple message, at times a bit heavy-handed, but delivered with real heart and soul. Not everything has to be a seven-part series – this tells its story and, fittingly, doesn’t outstay its welcome. It’ll stick with you.

I absolutely was engrossed by this! As an author myself, who has used alternate endings, making my own choices was drawing me into the story. I only wish there had been one last choice I could have had at the very end. But that’s my secret! I highly recommend this to everyone!

Honestly, I loved it. No, the game isn’t free, but it states that in the very beginning. For those who are getting angry or upset over it, the authors didn’t deceive anyone. It states it clearly on the first page. About the game though. I loved it. It was sad, and it left me wanting more for my character, but that was the whole point of the book. We always want more. We’re never fully satisfied. Anyway, I recommend it if you have the dollars to spare. Loved the characters and the story

Beautiful, melancholic story. Carefully written and although I would feel bad about paying for games without graphics and more complex gameplay, I think it’s worth it to pay for a great novel. And that’s what it is, an interactive novel!

The storyline is very interesting and the choices are well thought out. I really wish I could’ve bought it. One thing I was slightly disappointed about however, was that Thanatos was not an option for the reaper’s appearance.

This game is just.. Fantastic! My first playthrough just felt so emotional and at the very end of it, I was crying. I was so sad yet happy at the struggles my character had gone through and what he accomplished. Yet at the end of it, the price was so heavy that I had tears welling up in my eyes. I’m about to start my second playthrough and I’m curious about what will happen this time.
