What an engaging adventure! It's fantastic to have so many opportunities to flesh out your character while exploring such an immersive environment. I definitely had the feeling of playing a game within a game, and I honestly felt like the themes the character was grappling with would come into play in your own choices - I was not disappointed! Overall, a wonderfully thoughtful and moving story, and I look forward to playing it all over again.

This is freaking beautiful. <3

Creatures Such as We is an artistic masterpiece - thought-provoking, engaging and spectacularly written...

Thank you so much for this, Lynnea.

Ok I have something to get off my chest. I have never felt more attached in a game. Your ending pissed me off at first. Now I couldn't have loved it more. You are much more then a developer or writer. Your an artist. Trully someone special. A creator. And I hate you for making me love ren then only letting me be with her at the end. The kind of imagination it takes to do what you did. I don't understand how you could be so talented its really not even fair... Anyway ranting through hurry up with the next game. Before I die of boredom. Nothing I have played lives up to this standard now.

This game is definitely one of the best text-based games I've ever played. I've just gotten to lunch time and have to wait a little bit longer, so I'm writing my review. So far, I really like the story and the humanity of the characters - this is what I would imagine it to be like in the moon-base in the future!
I also like how you have the option to buy - although constricting, it gives the whole thing a professional air.
Anyway, I am loving this and can't wait to finish it!
Great job!

It's time you were honest with yourself.

I can't handle this.
I'm not a real professional.
I haven't prepared for this.
I don't know what to do.

Are these really my options, I have made my character out to be as calm and emoitionless as possible and shes on the verge of a breakdown, really?

Beautifully written and super easy to get lost in. I didn't get the ending I was hoping for, and probably missed a lot of stuff. But I still thoroughly enjoyed this game. Seriously considering buying... Absolutely wonderful <3

Loved this story, it was super moving and I really couldn't put my phone down till I finished it.

Extremely emotional. I felt a little detached in the beginning, but as soon as you choose a guest to stick close to, the game grabs you, pulls you in, and doesn't let go. The story within a story of the video game works wonderfully. It really helps immersion and makes you think. The "and again. and again. and again" part was powerful. I won't say any more, lest I ruin it for someone else. Great job, Lynnea!

This is beautifully done, immersive, engaging, and thoughtful. The framed video game portions of this story remind me of the Catherynne M. Valente story "Killswitch," also about a video game featuring a person with a beloved ghost companion, and addressing many similar themes. And despite the dating aspect of the main narrative, I find this to be a better version. Truly a shame more haven't been exposed.
