Neat game, love the concept of personalizing the story to the player. I included it in part 7 of my WAG Challenge compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/49nadV8EHTg

This game started out as a decent game about a relationship(though I wish I could have seen that relationship develop over time, instead of skipping to the marriage), but the murder makes it a bit of a worse game, especially because it ends on "To be Continued". I definitely would care more about my lover's secrets-- if I knew something about them besides their name. The lover's lack of character development makes the game a bit weak. As I said, though, the game is ok overall.

I'm also in the WAG challenege-- you can find my game, Literate, here http://itch.io/jam/wag-challenge/rate/29610

[Spoilers!]

First of all, the "he/she/they" thing didn't work in many places: the lover, who I named James and was male was suddenly a girl in this sentence: "Well don't just stand there adoring me," she chides "get yourself ready." James is also referred to as "they" multiple times, when it's supposed to be "he", and "she" a few more times for a good measure.

I feel like "Explore the exciting parts of everyday life, before confronting something we all hope to avoid." isn't exactly a accurate description for this game. After all, the majority of us will likely never see a person murdered.
