About the Story

As a recent recruit to the Agency of Narrative Intervention, you are tasked with playing the role of a "manic pixie dream girl". Following a strict outline, you must use your screwball wackiness to push a series of characters out of their comfort zones. But what happens to you after they get their happy endings?
I really wanted to make something for the Anti-Romance Jam since I have about three thousand ideas on that topic, but I didn't have enough time to do justice to more than one piece. While trying to find a different perspective that might let me use multiple ideas, this concept struck me and I realised it was perfect. I'm pretty proud of what I managed to achieve, even if it's a little rough around the edges, so I hope you enjoy playing!
Made using Decker, the greatest invention since sliced microchips.
Recommended listening: Allie X, Anna McClellan, Bess Atwell, HAIM, Halsey, Liv.e, Marika Hackman, Porridge Radio, The WÆVE, Winter Took His Life, Wolf Alice.

We all want a manic pixie dream girl, but what does she want?, August 2, 2023

I want to preface that this game was insane, and pushed all the right buttons for me. Is it genius? I think so. At least the ending I got was to me.

As a manic pixie dream girl, you are tasked by the Agency of Narrative Intervention to help the main characters of the short stories to fulfill their potentials, by making it all about “yourself”. Break some hearts, break some love, break some chains… But never become enmeshed with the story.
That is until…
… the story feels… off. And your role doesn’t quite fit anymore… You may choose to push through and finish your work, or maybe follow that strange character trying to make you question everything you know (was it your manic pixie dream girl?).

Along with some sort of red/blue pill choice, the ever changing UI almost pushes you down a path, one you might feel too afraid to take, one which could set you free? Yet, are you doomed to repeat the stories you were once tasked to change?

A really interesting and mind-blowing entry!
