This game is about the experiences of teenagers after running away from home.
Oh, sweet. They actually had us play this in school. My very first IF game.
Oh, Darwin House. I used to read their story collections and things back when I was a teenager. They made me feel less alone, like things could be worse, and gave a hopeful glimpse of a world where adults who gave a damn did meaningful things for people.
It’s good to see they’re still around and publishing, and IF is a great fit for them. And yes, 20 years later they can still make me cry.
I think I got all the endings at this point. Struggling to get off of the streets was satisfying - for those kids who absolutely have no other alternative, hopefully this can help give some survival tips.
