The paths I've taken so far might have been quite short but the game actually subtly benefits from this outcome as it's replayability is gretly increased to a point that even I could not comprehend anymore. The alternative paths you can take in contrast to the original plot might not have been novel but they've been executed in such a way that it's actually quite good in it's own rights. So kudos to the author responsible for this great game.

This game was truly marvellous. Though it was short, I liked how the routes completely differed from the real tragedy. The writing style though seemed lacking sometimes, and the story turned quite fast. But in the end, it was a good read.

I like this kind of alternative stories, and the author did a good job to add a bunch of endings different to the original which really gave you the sense of escaping fate. The writing style is enjoyable - I normally prefer CoGs with 200k words or more but this game manages to make you content with what it offers.
