Varicella-like game about 7 ultra-competitive girls competing at auditions. , February 3, 2016

This game is known for 3 things:

1. Doing a good job of recreating the vibe of Varicella, where numerous NPCs are on strict timetables and can be manipulated.

2. Having a strong narrative voice of a competitive kid with a stage mom.

3. Being very, very (perhaps unfairly) hard.

I played through with the walkthrough and really enjoyed it. I don't know anyone who solved more than 1 or 2 of the puzzles on their own. In such games, I like to play through once with the walkthrough, and then play it again a month or two later so that it's still a challenge, but you know what you generally have to do.

This is a frankly fantastic game, and it should have more recognition.

The Onion A.V. Club

Author Sarah Morayati channels a pageant princess’ soul in her prose, bringing life to six girls who are auditioning to enter Bridger, a performance academy for precocious young starlets. The atmosphere of petulant backbiting among the passive-aggressive (and aggressive-aggressive) personalities is hilarious, but the story is held back by a clumsy conversation system and incredibly obtuse puzzles.
