After seeing the Transgender WIP game it got me to thinking about games where the “Adventure” is just Self discovery. Alter Ego was a game from the 80s so it doesn’t count. But I was thinking it be interesting to have games where you discover who you are as a person and not save/ conquer/ destroy the world.
Just to be clear, you’re not talking about specifically coming of age stories, correct? You’re asking specifically for low-stakes journeys of discovery?
I’m just trying to figure out how to reword the title for maximum effectiveness.
Exactly where it’s not some big plot jus trying to survive the real world and discover your self
I actually don’t know of any, but I’ll retitle the topic so that it reflects your request more accurately. Hopefully someone has an idea.
It’s hard to find any CoG games without SOME kind of drama… but I have a suggestion or two…
-Sixth Grade Detective has literal sixth-grade stakes. You’re in no way saving the world.
-Creatures Such As We has you be a tour guide on the Moon who likes video games. Very philosophical, very introspective. Things happen, but it’s not world-shattering.
