About the Story

THE CROWD HEAVES

the bass of the music
you can feel it vibrate through your fingertips
warm feeling of rum
sticky on your throat;
ice cracks in the glass
you put lime to your lips and bite

"I really wanted to make a ‘dating sim’ for the Pulse Pounding Heart Stopping Dating Sim Jam and instead of making it about weird and wonderful sexual experiences I wanted to make it about the heart stopping drudgery of being heterosexual in a world where heterosexuals are conditioned not to talk to each other, or listen to each other, or really have any idea what they are doing.

Oh, yes, and turn your volume up, there is music at a certain point." - Author's Description

Memorable quick read. Frank lines, abrupt endings , September 14, 2021

Easy to read poetry written like an actual drunk woman making stupid decisions. Must play all love interests and get all endings to be fully appreciated, though only two are what I would consider "required" choices - the two choices that are summed up frankly and succinctly by these lines from the end:

you are built
to only hurt and be hurt

Insightful, July 7, 2014

This brought back memories of discovering dance floors in early 2009, but from a very different vantage point. I think this would be a good game to play for anyone who doesn't understand the vulnerability of women in such an environment; those who claim that women hold the power in the negotiation of sex should play this game to walk the precarious tightrope that women face.
