Great Design
Makes Me Think

The design reminds me of the Goosebumps books where they put the reader into the story and you're allowed to make choices which affect the outcome of your story. Very innovative. Being able to go back and redo some choices was really fun. The colorful backgrounds and animations of Blu and the text were a nice touch. Have you thought about putting more choices and scenarios for Blu? Excellent!

Great design and fun storytelling! I enjoyed going through and seeing all the outcomes for our friend Blu. I would be interested in seeing some more choices and outcomes that we could see Blu go through.

I love this story! I really enjoyed being able to learn the things I did while wanting to save Blu! I found myself also choosing other options just so that I could see what would happen! It was awesome to see the many different paths I could choose! The text was a little hard to read at times, and I found myself wanting a little more before it ended but I think those are things that could take just a bit more time.

You did an amazing job with this project! It was fun and light hearted but still covering a very real topic. Great work!

i can tell that you put a lot of work into your project and it shows that you had a purpose in what you wanted to bring awareness to. i also liked that you used a real animal that is an endangered species right now
