[Archived] What’s in a Name?
(Original game publication date: 01/10/2013)
This was my second attempt at a game, also made in Twine. Thanks to an unexpected mention by a person who was well-known online, it wound up making an unexpectedly big impression. It was mentioned in Kotaku. It got a nice write-up in Bit Creature. It was even the IF Game of the Day at The Border House. Needless to say, I did not see all that coming.
Anyway, this one is about my early experiences in coming out bisexual. Let’s just say that things didn’t go as planned; I think the main reason this hurt so much is because it came from a source where one would expect understanding. I’ve become more comfortable in my identity since then (otherwise, I couldn’t have made Eden) and I know you can’t judge an entire group by the behavior of some, but that first impression can become a lasting one for many.
