Devastating and beautiful. A horrifying look into letting somebody else define you, this story uses it's relationship story to explore intimacy and gender while keeping a sharp focus on the feelings involved.

You're literally not -
"just this gay shit existing is spoling it" is a judgement call, not a question. And I do think straight people can and maybe should play it, just like all of the straight content I consume despite not being able to connect with it on that grounds. You not liking it means literally just that, delete it and move on.
A short, heartfelt experience. I love how it grounds a modern tale of codependency into a myth we're all familiar with. The surreal presentation with isolated assets definitely adds to that, evoking the intimacy and familiarity of everyday life, tying Theseus' experience to our own through time.
I really like and appreciate the concept of curating specifically hard to find / infrequently played games - very few games I've made myself have been played more than a handful of times (which I'm personally okay with), but there's a huge amount of really fantastic games with herculean amounts of effort put into them that have barely been noticed. I think that games could grow so much as an art form if we didn't look for just what we're expecting from games, and Steve Cook's work has undoubtedly helped with that, even in a small way.
