Coming-Out Simulator

This here is a really good piece of writing I think everyone who wants to put a message into his VNs should have played. And everybody else who just doesn't mind a really good piece of writing.

Oh, I saw this on the Nar8 jam page. :)

I'm playing all of the games from it anyways, but your recommendation bumped Coming Out Simulator 2014 to the top of my "to play" list.

WOW that was amazing. I'm straight as a board but I felt that hit me every time I had to make a choice. I'm still trying to recover from Walking Dead, dammit.

So after starting to post, I realised how old this thread actually was, but I think it's worth a bump. I agree with Taleweaver: it's a really good piece of writing, and writers (myself included) definitely have things to learn from this. In addition to putting across a message, I'd say it's also a great showcase of making the reader feel the impact of his or her choices.

This also reminds me of 'Emily is Away' on Steam, if anyone is looking for something similar.

Oh, is sad that in this day and age people must pass for things like that. It's 2016 for Madoka's sake.

I really liked the game, particularly the conversations between the author and the player.
