Yes, my mother is...

About the Story

Counseling is no easy job.

When someone requests your help, within the space of a few questions, you must have learned enough about them, about their strengths and weaknesses, about what they want and what they need, to give them some appropriate advice, guidance which will do more good than bad.

And, in your specific case, you also need to answer many, many questions about your mother.

Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
As a game, it's interesting to explore the different options in an effort to discover everything we can about the situation, and it's short enough that we can do so without too much tedium. As a story, it's a fable worth considering when looking out into the real world.

A shortish twine game about an alternate future , May 10, 2017

In this game, you are the daughter of the famous founder of the n/a movement, which somehow focuses on those with subtle powers, whether supernatural or based on refined psychology, I couldn't tell.

This game has many endings, based on how you react to 1-4 visitors that come to your office. The game has large blocks of text either a few, but varied options at the end.

I found the game not very exciting, but I liked how differently you could actually on different playthroughs.

Intriguing World Building, May 22, 2017
by Joey Jones (UK)

The game is near-future, social sci-fi, focusing on a therapist and their relationship with their own mother. It's an unusual topic explored through a visual-novel structure. In game documents can be unlocked but need not be reread each time, which is a nice touch for replayability (and the small mysteries and alternative endings encourage replaying).
