Oops when this time?

Very very good simulator. I'm bi and haven't come out to my parents yet so this game was VERY intense for me. Despite the too close to home intensity I enjoyed it very much. (Although when Dan Savage was mentioned at the end I literally felt my stomach drop as he's a racist, biphobic and transphobic piece of trash)

I think this game could be an eye opener for anyone against bisexuals and the like. It's very well written. I could play this game again to experience the ending another time. "I won.". I feel like if someone with the same situation as the author played this game, they'd feel more confident about who they are. This game is a masterpiece in my book.

Great game, very witty and well polished.

Really amazing!

This was a beautiful narrative game. It felt very focused on the most important element, storytelling, and supported that with a lovely style and interface. The dialogue options played well to different personalities, at least to mine, as I found myself being able to say things that I might have said myself. Above all, it felt genuinely sincere, and I appreciated the author leading you into the story from the coffee shop, which was a very nice touch. Great work on the technical implementation, too!

What a beautiful, intimate little game. I t really drew me in and I found myself acting as a sort of counselor, trying to make the choices I thought you 'should' have made. Less effective storytelling would have had me reaching for the extreme options just to see what happened but I felt too involved for that.

Glad it all worked out for you at the end. I did save the truth for last, by the way. :)

Oh my gosh, my mind is just blown entirely by everything about this game! I love the graphics, I love the storytelling, and of course I love the wit. That was fun and heartbreaking and all kinds of amazing at the same time. I'm glad to hear that things got better for you in the end, and that you found hope. Thank you for sharing your story with us in such an amazing way!

Funny game, great story. I included it in part 1 of my Nar8 Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/-Vf43eyLuSE
