Small, pleasing slice-of-life confection, February 16, 2016
by verityvirtue (London)

mer is a very short, broadly branching game about drowning your sorrows in lousy whiskey. You've been disillusioned. The tone is markedly different depending on which branch you go down, so I'll stop here.

What deserves mention, I think, is the use of visuals in this game to set the mood. The background is a kind of muted mix of colours, perhaps evocative of the flashing lights in a club; the sidebar is set askew. The writing is good, as well - there are some striking images, some particularly attractive turns of phrase. mer is a small, pleasing confection which touches on some very relevant issues.
