Insights:

  • The video game is a narrative game where you investigate an abandoned home an uncover the details of a coming of age/lesbian romance. The relationship is complex and well built and it definitely can be useful for teens struggling with their LGBT identity in a household that is intolerant of it, while still focusing largely on the positive facets of that relationship.
