In My Best Friend, you play as Annie, a young girl living in a fictional Celtic village with her parents. One rainy day, she meets a boy named Charlie, who changes her life forever.
As a game, it’s basically an emotion sim, where you’re trying to keep her Fear, Anger, Jealousy and Sadness (hidden stats) 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.
If you’d like to try the full game (the wordcount is about 50k overall), please post here. Thanks!
