This game is a lot of fun to play and has a great design. I really love the rollover effect on the buttons and how this is offset by the choice of background design.
The subject matter is very relevant and engaging. I liked how small decisions build up to a larger effect. In that sense it was deceptively realistic - you don't always know the outcome of your decisions until the end.
A few small improvements on the gameplay might have a huge impact on making it feel even more fun. An image or graphic of a person would help contextualize and humanize the game. Providing more guidance on each of the options might also help. For instance, instead of "Don't vape" it could read something like: "You remember reading that vaping has been linked to permanent lung damage and even death - say no." This is an easy way to introduce even more information in a non-threatening way.
I really liked how many different choices there were. I know it can be difficult to build out games like this and you did a great job making it all work correctly. Lastly, the choice to set this game at a party really made it feel relevant to a lot of teens who can benefit the most from its message. Great work.

This game does a good job of really making you consider your choices, and that made me want to go back and replay the game several times in order to see what other possibilities were available. Perhaps it would helpful in another iteration to consider adding some more images or audio to make the game feel more immersive, to really set the scene for the events that are taking place.
I had a great time running back and replaying. Good job!

I liked that this game really has you thinking deeply about what may or may not happen. This would be a good game to play with a group of friends or by yourself. Nice work with this.
