2015 IGF FINALIST for EXCELLENCY IN NARRATIVE

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?

Reviews


I loved it, it was like a motivation for LGBT community to be themselves...



Noice



Absolutely adore this game. Good story, raw, and the hard truth, many different problems in society are talked about in this game and I would love to play more titles by the author. KUDOS!



This game was really good!



This is really touching. Thank you for sharing your--I guess-- half-happy, half-sad story.

I had a conservative upbringing as well. Four years ago, I wouldn't have even come near this game, if I did I probably would've left a very rude and ignorant comment. I was a sheltered, naive, white girl who thought she had the whole world figured out at 16 years old. Of course I didn't. Today I prefer to separate Christian morality and my political views. Yeah I'm fundamentalist, but I don't identify as conservative anymore, I changed to moderate.

Anyway, I'm hetero, so I can't say I completely identified with everything. However, my twin brother is homoflexible, in basic words for those who don't know, he's bi but mostly has been attracted to men. I remember when my brother officially came out last year and that time wasn't pretty. My parents were already hurt and angry from drama with my estranged uncle a few months prior, so they lashed out on my brother. But he still lives at home, my mom still loves him and shares personal stories with him about things from her childhood that come to her mind sometimes. My dad is hard to read ever since his heart attack six years ago. I don't know how he handles it today. But it's really sad that my brother still has to hide. I love him, I want him to be happy, I don't want him to be alone. But its still hard for me to understand what he goes through.

Sorry, I'm verbose. But thank you again.
