About the StoryA little microbe in the primordial ooze has grand dreams! Dreams of survival, by and large, but small goals lead to large ones. Can you climb your way out of the ooze onto the land, into civilization, and up to the stars? And by the time you reach space, will you be wearing the fanciest of all fancy hats?

The Breakfast Review
The text bits are all very short and perky. I liked the affectionate humour. This is clearly meant to be a lighthearted romp, and I'm not sure if there is a way to "lose".

Spore in choicescript, with hats, May 9, 2017
You start out as a small being in primordial ooze, then grow into a creature, then a tribe, a city, and a spacefarer.
The game is well polished and has a consistent tone that's not bad. Some of the cycling of similar options seemed a bit tedious at the end.
Overall, I would put it in the top half of the competition.
