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
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.
Whoever wrote this isn't human. It makes me cry every time I play it (I played it through like twenty times). I thought I was really dating this person you made up, and it effected my mood for the whole day when James fell in the crevasse and I couldn't save him till 4 pm because I had to go to school.
