Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.
There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.
Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.
Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves.
this game made me cry omfg
I have never cried playing a game before This game was the first
Heh, you can be a tough little fucker in this game, it’s great.
I wanted to give this a try and even though I’ve been a perfectly square cishet envelope for my family’s cubic mailbox mindset, some of the dialog in that game was disturbingly….familiar.
How does this even happen? I have to get most legendaries beaten to an inch of their life, asleep, with every button pressed and my first born sacrificed for some catches. And TPP just throws a ball at full HP and catches a fucking shiny Zekrom like it aint even a thing.
There is a .0000014% chance of this happening, I can’t fucking believe it
