Review for Tigers forever
17 Apr 2021
Color scheme makes the game unplayable (as I can't really read the text)

The game doesn't have a lot of content. Most choices boil down to "do you join this somewhat extreme group" or not, and then giving you an ending telling you how the rest of your life went. Found it unrealistic (with a setting that mostly didn't make sense and very heavy and unfair sterotypes) and lacking in interesting (such as in depth looks at people from the time). Also leans in heavily on a red scare mentality that to me doesn't seem realistic.

Review for Life in the 1600s
17 Apr 2021
Gives a fun and slightly educational perspective on what a life might be like in the 1600s. To me it seems reasonably believable with regards to the setting and it has some nice descriptions of for example why a certain choice was favored. However, most paths are shallow, with only 1 or 2 choices once you decide where you live and your gender. Apart from that the writing is sometimes off when it comes to specific paths due to having multiple ways of getting to a certain point. For example the game assumes you have already married when you get employed for certain kinds of "female" work, despite you deciding explicitly to work before marriage. To summarise I found the game to work while being somewhat unimpressive. Would have prefered more focus on a more narrow path while dropping most of them.

Cute little game that almost made me laugh. A fun playthrough but without much depths (at least from my perspective).

Review for Youth Survival Sex
03 Jan 2021
Quite political with a clear agenda, has very good storytelling though and a surprising amount of situations you can get into. Sometimes feels a bit buggy, basicly breaking it's own rules, but generally works fine. I'd recommend a few playthroughs.

Review for Yorkney, 1865
30 Dec 2020
A fine short classical (very supernatural and with big monsters) horror game. Has some interesting choices and different endings. I personally would be looking for something more realistic and subtle, but the game is good at what it does.

Review for The Party

A silly game without real depth. Has some content at least.

Review for Stuck in Traffick

Basicly not a game as choices don't matter. However an important story to be told and tells it very well.

Review for The Longest Term
30 Dec 2020
A short game that I would mostly describe as comedy. Has some small educational value as well, but mostly a cute and fun game. Not what I was looking for given the "simulation" tag. Took about 10 min.

Review for The Party

Simplistic story with too obvious choices and some weird and unsatisfying endings. At least has some content (about 10 min if you look for a few endings).

Review for Following Me
30 Dec 2017
The best game I have played in the genre! Just note that the story is long (took me about 2 hours) with a comparatively low density of decisions, making it feel like more of a book than most games. Still, the captivating story and interesting and meaningful choices make it a great game for those interested in the genre.
