YMMV: The Path
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: This song made by a fan excellently summarizes the feel of the game.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Most of the fan art for the game seems to be pairing up the girls with the human wolves. Carmen's is especially prettified, no longer appearing to be middle aged, bald, and frequently seems to get a Race Lift.
  • Epileptic Trees: Loads; this game is an epileptic orchard.
    • Reviewers describe the meaning behind the game as being as subjective as a puzzle of the night sky with nothing but perfectly square pieces. The creators are amused by all the wild interpretations, and have stated, "What you see in the game seems to speak more about yourself than the game."
  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: One of the interpretations is that the Girl in White symbolizes Jesus (white, blood etc), and Grandmother's house is hell.
  • Fan Nickname: "Sephiroth" for Scarlet's wolf.
  • Freud Was Right: The creators have said that they hear countless people describe this game as being "about rape". They admit that's one possible interpretation, but would like you to try to look a little deeper.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It's a game based off of Little Red Riding Hood and there are two characters named Ruby and Rose. Insert RWBY reference here.
  • Les Yay: Ginger and her wolf.
    • In Carmen's livejournal she states that if she were a man, and if Ruby wasn't related to her, she could see herself "liking" Ruby. And in one of Scarlet's entries, Carmen leaves a comment about enjoying feeling heat on her skin and Ruby comments that Carmen has "a beautiful body that is a pleasure to look at, I'm sure".
  • Narm: Given the general tone of the game it's hard to take Robin's wolf seriously when she starts riding on top of it like a pony.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Again, Grandma's house, especially after encountering a wolf.
    • "The Forest Theme" is spooky, but not spookier than the rest of the soundtrack. And then you get to the last minute...
    • The sisters each encountering their own wolf can very easily cross into Adult Fear situations. In particular, Robin's and Carmen's.
  • Paranoia Fuel: From a gameplay standpoint. Despite some references to the wolves possibly attacking you at any moment, they only appear in a specific area for each girl, but, if you don't know where they are...
  • Sockpuppet: Check the date stamps. The various sisters talk to each other with comments only 1 minute apart.
  • Unfortunate Implications: One review savaged this game for its false sense of choice (if you go off the path, terrible things happen... but if you don't, nothing happens) and its implied lesson that women can't deviate from the straight and narrow in life or suffer terrible consequences.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Scarlet's wolf. It's fairly easy to get confused. Word of God names it "Fey Wolf", which... doesn't help much.
