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?

That was touching. Very touching.

Thank you.



I loved this game. Personally I'm a homosexual going through the same kind of situation. I haven't come out to my parents even though I know that they will absolutely be supportive of my decision of becoming a gay man. The only things that stumped me through this experience was the choices I had to make with the consequences in mind after I made them, even though the situation that was simulated was a shitty situation to begin with because I wouldn't be able to deal with my parents snooping around my phone and finding out about me. And the ending kinda left off at a confusing note, it wasn't really made clear which route was the "cannon" ending to the story, I'm going to say it was the half-truth ending because it seemed more believable. Also that family is fucked up for being so over investigative on they're own son, especially when it's supposed to be a private conversation, your supposed to feel comforted and safe. When your own parents break that safe zone of relaxation, then I would have totally understood if you ended up running away to live with your boyfriend. But anyway this was a very insightful experience, I'm always looking forward to listening to somebody talk about they're coming out experience because I like to hear those kinds of story's, they're really interesting and that's what brought me to this game. So I'll give this game a five since it gave me a chance to relate to the author.



I love how the story ends. It was like me in real life but my 'boy' friend who I always assume that I love to my sister, just like didn't even care about me. Noice Game! I love the part when your mother knew you had sex with Jack. OMG XD

Mew Meow Meow MAOOOOO (its grape)
only issue i had with this game is the "hitting home" part where whatever you say she read your texts, changed your school and got punched.(me it was more of a you cant talk to anyone, ditch your gf, no you cant have a boyfriend that shit... i did get puched down a staircase tho eh doesnt count.)
the puke eating is the best part. BLOOOO, SUFFERING, GAY UNICORNS
