For Rent: Haunted House

It's your job to rent out a haunted house before your tyrannical boss has you fired!
It's an interactive novel where your choices control the story. For example, when your tenants, who haven't slept in days due to bone-chilling whispers emanating from the walls, ask to break their lease, do you:
A) Let them transfer their lease to another property?
B) Allow them to break the lease, but keep their security deposit?
C) Insist on sticking to the terms of the lease?
D) Boldly investigate, like all the victims in bad horror films?
How will you screw over your tenants? Will you ignore inconvenient supernatural phenomena, or use them to drum up publicity? How will you deal with ghost hunters, squatters, and celebrity tenants? Will you emerge as the top agent? Stage an office coup? Or will you become a permanent resident of 57 Crowther Terrace?
(This game used to be called "Eerie Estate Agent," before we changed the name.

If you enjoy playing "For Rent: Haunted House," please leave a nice review. It really helps!
I remember the first 'choice of' game I played was quite dumb a few years ago. All the options seemed to be fairly useless and didn't change/or progress the story at all. It was mostly annoying because these stories have a decided future no matter what decision or choice you make. Not to mention most of the choices just don't seem...human. Like why the friz would someone continue selling a house if they know it's haunted and causing ruin to everyone's lives?! Anyway I did like the slight humor in some parts. It really psyched me up. Otherwise the main character isn't likeable, the story lacks depth (previous occupants and why the house wants to eat people maybe?!) I would probably pay for a sequel with a better main character and a deeper far more interesting story!
A well put together adventure
I had no idea what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. There's never a dull moment here where you play a real estate agent fighting to keep your job. The problem is that you are saddled with renting out a haunted house. You must get as much as you can from your rentals to survive in your firm. An arch rival will take your job if you don't. You can be as amoral as you like or feel comfortable with. Well worth playing.
This book is for kids ages 8-12 and would be 3 stars if that you. I doubt many over 10 would read it and rate it higher then 3 stars. The story fails to go in depth about the house or afterlife and this makes it lack interest. The focus is on you and your goal/job. Your not in the house so much.
I played a quick second time and got another super short ending but it was different from the first super short ending.
Price started way high but dropped due to lack of interest I think then became free due continued disinterest.
