My Best Friend

all-ages-fiction

#1

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!

DEMO

I’d be interested in playing, but I’m curious why a private demo for just one chapter of the story? Why not make it public for everyone on the forum? It could help peek people’s interest.


#3

I would like to play


#4

Would be into checking this out.
Should make it public though since it’s only one chapter and you’ll get more feedback.


#5

I’d like to, but why don’t make it public? It would be more easier to obtain feedback.


#6

I might eventually, but right now I feel…kind of protective of it? Like it’s a baby that’s just been born.

I am interested (20 characters)

What do you think of the demo?

  • I like it.
  • As a game, it needs work.
  • The writing is hard to follow.
  • Not my cup of tea.

If you don’t like it, then why not?

  • No romance.
  • Preset protagonist.
  • First person perspective.
  • Not enough choices.
  • Not enough stats.
  • Just not my cup of tea.
