    Is pressing X on any description in the flat (besides ‘you don’t feel tired’) meant to lead to sex? That seems like a bug.

  2. Yes that is a bug! I’ll fix it later…

    Is that possible?

    I like it.

    It’s interesting that your outcome depends on if you are honest with the therapist rather than any of your particular actions, that it’s your only actual choice.

    Good game, a bit unsettling but effective.

    Another very nice one. There was something warm, close and sincere about this one. I think the excellent soundtrack was what clinched it for me.

    I can’t seem to find the .exe file, or anything else that gets the game to start. I’m running Windows XP, if that’s relevant…

  7. Hmm.

    The game *should* directly load in the browser when you click on the “play online here” link. Possibly try refreshing the page if there’s nothing on it. Which browser are you using? It’s possible you mightn’t have the latest version of flash installed.

    There’s no executable in the zip file, just the source.

    Oh, right. That’s probably why it was labeled ‘Source’, huh? x_x I’m using the most recent version of Firefox, and flash is up to date. Refreshed the browser, and it worked fine.

    So, basically, the therapist is also the patient? (As revealed by lying to him)

    Have you ever read any Jorge Luis Borges?

    I think everything, except his poetry.

    Just found your game today, really enjoying all of them so far. I found this one especially moving for some reason. Like others have noted I think the soundtrack has a lot to do with it but there’s a lot else going on here as well.

    I’m not sure it entirely holds up on replays though; I kind of wish that different responses in the initial choices in the conversation menus lead to new conversation options, not just the same ones every time. It makes it seem like nothing you say really ends up affecting anything, although maybe that’s the point.

    All in all, beautiful game, and I look forward to playing more!
