AAAAAAH! Just... every piece of this is perfect and needed and makes the whole thing better. The game portion at the end is so good, but so much of it happens because of and starting in the sections before (including and especially the FULL PAGE of redacted text, what a thing). I'm screaming!
Thank you so much for this game, I am truly grateful for it. I played along while I read, and the emotion I felt is one I wouldn't have recognized otherwise, and one for which I don't have a solid word. It's soft and quiet, and it lives very nearby to Love.
It's such a wonderful lesson. If we want something (to elicit emotions, say), the most genuine and vulnerable thing we can do is ask someone to give that to us.
thank you so much for all the kind words! (I want to say more, but I'm truly gushing, honestly) That's a good feeling, btw. And thank you for pushing me, inadvertently, just by the nature of hosting this game jam, into writing this!
There was a vulnerableness that came over me as soon as I posted it, both in that I feel like I wrote nonsense but also I may have written my favorite work yet.
And it's not gone, not entirely, but I do feel proud and appreciated, and in a good way, seen and heard!
