I also wrote some words about the soundtrack.

I meant to add, the forum interactions were one of my favourite things in the game to write, and I did have a certain blue website in mind when working on them. :)

Ok, I've died once and caused two coups in European countries. Or maybe twice in the same European country. It is very cool (I really liked what you did with the Cuban Lady etc), but trying to get back to a different decision point involves a lot of repetition. It would be good to have the option to either start over from the beginning, or skip to a couple of the major decision points.

Having just played again, changing some of the variables, still winding up with a coup (can I ever get one anywhere but Europe? poor Europe), I am beginning to think there isn't a good outcome here...

I really like the idea, and the soundtrack is great, and there's some lovely touches in it that really make it stand out (music, bg colour changes, aforementioned thing with the Cuban Lady/morse). But yeah, I'm not quite fanatical enough to sit through the repetition to try to get a different outcome - unlike the protagonist of the game!
