In My Best Friend, you play from the perspective of a child living in a fictional Celtic village with their parents. One rainy day, they meet a boy named Charlie, who changes their life forever.
As a game, it’s basically an emotion sim, where you’re trying to keep their Fear, Anger, Jealousy and Sadness under control, while also keeping the other characters happy.
As a story, it’s a character-driven meditation on loss, loneliness, friendship, and ultimately, finding your way “home.” I’d say it has elements of magical realism.
The game is finished, but I’m hoping to test the final chapters privately. If you’d like to help with that, please let me know. Or there’s a poll here. Thanks!
