The Spare Set by Shelter UK

This game was developed by Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, to highlight the problems facing families in Britain today.

For many, due to high costs and stagnating wages, an accident, job loss or other incident outside of their control could send them and their family into a downward spiral which may result in the loss of their home. This is happening more and more, and Shelter offers vital advice and legal representation for these families, helping them to keep their heads above water and hold onto their homes.

In this game, we are immersed in the story of Lucy, a mother-of-two and homeowner, exploring her life on the day that everything goes wrong for her and her family.

Heartbreaking. Truly.

I liked it. Although, I think a slight bit more action should give it fives all round! But by me, the story was excellent. Doing great! Can't wait for more.

Oh, I think how the text fades in, but I can't work it out! If you could reply to me on how, that'd be awesome!

This has got to be the best interactive fiction I have ever encountered. The main character is very well portrayed, the story so down to earth and realistic, it was easy to get fully immersed into it. The ordering of events, details and story line are just amazing. I highly recommend this one.
