Coming Out Simulator 2014 by Nicky Case

A half-true game about half-truths. You play as a semi-fictional version of me, on a night that changed my life forever. Choose your (my?) words wisely. Every character will remember everything you say - or don't say - as you figure out how to approach my (your?) hyper-conservative Asian parents. And if all that seems confusing or awkward... well, that's the gist of coming out as queer, isn't it? [Author's annotation]

I am not bi or gay but I appreciated this game and it brought on the "Feels" so to speak. I Hope you can continue making great games!!

As a bisexual person myself, I connected with this game so much. Thank you for the amazing experience, and Nicky (can I call you Nicky?), I genuinely hope you are happy and will keep making these amazing games.

This is my second time finding this game, the first being a year ago when I was very much questioning myself and my identity, and I needed all the reassurance I could get.
The first time through, I left with a smile on my face from the final coffee-shop dramatic scene.
My second time through, and I'm in tears.

I have come out inbetween the first and second time playing, and I'm very openly gay (and proud!!). I have no doubts about my identity or hatred of who I am, I feel really confident as a queer person nowadays. This time playing, all those feelings of confusion and loneliness and feeling so lost just hit me like nostalgia....

But in a good way. It shows me how far I've come. This game is absolutely, truly a wonderful piece!! It really gives a hug as well as a punch to the face (haha,...h a h... thats not funny.) to all the queer kids who come across this nicely made game.

If you're reading this and are part of the LGBT+ community, and are in either place I mentioned above, I'm proud of you and I love you!! (It gets betterâ„¢)

[TL;DR this game is great and im very, very gay]

This game is a m a z i n g.

This game also helped me come out to my own parents (whom are also coincidentally Asian).

I absolutely love how much of an interactive level this game has! It was definitely confusing at first, but became much queerer (ba-dum-tss) in the end. During playing the game, my parents and I found ourselves genuinely engaged in the game. My parents, whom I initially thought wouldn't support LGBT+, now support me as a pansexual and others in the LGBT+.

Thank you.

(Really. Thank you.)

When I chose "I need to get out of this house" and it ended up being "I need to move to the US", I was like "NO NO NO NO".

I didn't even realize who made this until he mention :The Game:.
This was a very touching story, some of the choices were so difficult to make.
