Hi Chuck and thanks for your review.
It's true that our free/pay-what-you-want gamebooks are MUCH darker than our premium books (Fantasy Dungeon, Jungle Quest, Post Apocalypse). We've purposedly made the games like that actually. :)
As with all types of products, our books are not for everyone. We do hope that you might find more entertainment in any of our other books and games. Check out the other free/pay-what-you-want gamebooks and see if you find something more to your likeing. Especially Halloween and Pinball might be more fun for you.
