Brief, but powerful, story, December 26, 2017

This hit me close to home, as I've spent time in a psych facility before. So much of this resonated with me. I'm happy there were LGBTQ characters/storylines; I'm glad the author drew attention to issues like lack of hormones, especially as a human right.

Hard to get into, July 4, 2017
by Khai_Six25 (USA)

Initially, the prose isn't very exciting. It's hard to get hooked into the game at first. I didn't really feel anything. The experience as described in this adventure and my experiences with similar situations are very different. The game does pick up, but still isn't enjoyable. Neither as a player nor as someone who has been in the situation presented.

A very long psych ward alt-game with Choice-of-Games style relationships, July 1, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 2 hours

This game reminds me in length and quality of a hosted Choice of Games commercial game. It has similar amounts of text per choice, and has 9 different relationships you can work on.

The main difference between this and choice of games is that there are frequently just 2 choices, while CoG tends to have 3 or more choices.

However, the author did a good job at making the game interesting by not making it clear which, if any, option is the 'right' option. I think this game provided a very clear picture of what a psych ward might be like. I chose to ally with a friend with borderline personality disorder.
