Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths
Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.
There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.
Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.
Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves.
this game made me cry omfg
This game is very well made and I highly suggest it, but keep in mind that it is highly emotional and often hits seriously close to home.
Whoever wants to eat cookie dough and not get salmonella. Here ya go!
Every woman? EVERY PERSON ON EARTH, MARS, OR WHEREVER THE HELL YOU ARE SHOULD HAVE THIS RECIPE.
I found the arso day 1. Somehow randomly got accused of Skype cheating, too. Not sure how that happened.
and then I was jailed and immediately executed???
I’m so unreasonably mad. CAN YOU TELL? It was just so stupid. Not to mention that the host didn’t even make a properly balanced game. Town was doomed from the start.
Jailor left the game the following night, and I didn’t even get to question them. :(Once I was an escort and the jailor killed me because I abstained in voting, and for no other reason. -.- Yet another time I was a serial killer and I didn’t die because the medium decided to seance me and was telling me who to vote off. :,D I just started to type, “Hey I’m being seanced by the medium they’re trying to tell me that “insert name” is the godfather I’ll help you vote him off”. And the jailor didn’t kill me and I killed him instead. X3
That’s amazingly clever. I might have to steal that sometime :3
"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."
I’m sick and it’s raining. A friend told me to do Ten with my cat Pipistro. Good night =_= zzzzzzz…
