I actually started tearing up when I was reading this. It's more of a poem than a game, but...god. At first I went in thinking it was going to be a story or game about gay girls picking up gay girls written by a straight person but I really couldn't be more wrong. It's so much more than just a love story, and it WILL have you in tears, especially if you've been in any sort of similar situation to either Lynn or Macy, which I have (both). I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't at least partially autobiographical
This short story had me on an emotional roller coaster throughout. I found myself relating to Lynn very strongly.. The writing style felt like I was really in the mind of Lynn, feeling all of the uncertainty, confusion, and desires she was having. It's difficult to put into words just how great of a story this is. I think the best way to dictate how powerful this story was is to say that I finished the story feeling a great deal of stress, followed by crying that resulted in me rethinking some life decisions of mine. This isn't a feel-good story, but it is still one I would strongly recommend, and one that I will likely come back to in some time.
This is a work of art hiding within a game engine.
It is not a choose-your-path style adventure. Instead, it's a hypertext style story of how a relationship evolved between two people. Gender stereotypes and social norms of all types are broken. Characters are revealed, and evolve. The writing style has elements of free verse, and can be a bit opaque at times. I do not believe the grammatical "errors" were any more accidental than those of e.e.cummings.
If you have ANY familiarity with gay subcultures, this is a MUST read. I went in expecting a fun romp with some pron. Instead, I was totally engrossed and ultimately deeply touched. The author might not consider it a love story, but I definitely consider it a story about love.
Really fantastic. Reminded me of the mindset behind "Diary of an Oxygen Thief". A story based around emotion and reactions between the characters that felt moving and strangely relatable. I genuinely enjoyed the experience, though I can see why it might not have been for everyone. While many criticized the work for its "fall in grammar", I felt as though that was a part of the production itself-it's poetry in its simplest form, and that's what is truly remarkable. Definitely not recommended for anyone who can't handle strong imagery or thought-provoking projects, but heavily recommended for anyone who enjoys a good story.
This was absolutely amazing. It so completely encompassed all the emotions and conflicts, and it was beautifully written, bad grammar or otherwise. I loved it, and enjoyed it so much. It wasn't a choose your own adventure, and it said that at the very beginning. It all lead to the exact same ending. It is not a love story.
