I am really enjoying the game! Your writing is strong and this feels like a unique story. I do have a few qualms though:
I feel that getting stuck in Tripp’s trap is a bit forced. I know you’re trying to foreshadow by having him casually mention McMahon, but instead it makes the protagonist seem sort of stupid not to question or doubt him by the time the protagonist is stuck waiting for him to show up. I would suggest having Tripp show up late and have it revealed that he’s working with the officer when McMahon confronts you, or not having Tripp slip up and mention McMahon at all earlier.
I’m not sure if I missed something, but I was confused when I told Bartlett I’d think about his offer to drop out of the campaign and then we cut to campaigning. I would have liked to see some sort of followup to that.
Continuity error, but when meeting Barry and Lance, the third option mentions who Lance is before the protagonist has actually figured out who he is.
Like @kckolbe mentioned, I also feel like the illusion of choice is stretched thin at points. I don’t feel very much in control, and I feel like the high rate of failure this early in the game is very frustrating without feeling like I earned any success to balance it.
It was also mentioned that the stats page needs cleaning. I agree with it, and I think @Blank has a good suggestion for it.
I loved the line about Lance being pretentious. It’s funny as hell, even if I didn’t choose it. Can I ask about what you’re planning with the love interests? How many are there, or are Sam and Lance the two options?
I liked the reveal with Tripp, Ben, and Capaldi. I wish I could have asked Ben about Tripp, or asked Tripp about what happened, since it felt weird to not mention it at all. Either to have Tripp thank us for saving Ben, or being able to ask if Ben was okay would be nice.
Finally, since there are so many stats, I would like to see more chances to build those stats.
All in all, I really love this concept and I love your skill with writing. It’s fun to follow and I’m sure some more revisions will perfect it.
