It was a good read. Excellent interactive-fiction gamebook. Lots of potential.
Your storytelling could use a little work, though... not enough depth, in my honest opinion. Also, the storyline was too short! You should make it longer, last for a few hours in the very least!
This story has so much potential and anyone who's played this game(book) so far will probably share my misery in inhabiting the metaphorical boat (or spaceship) called "Left Hanging".
So... will there be a sequel?
