    Emily is Away Too is basically the first game expanded beyond a simple gimmick. It may not be the best piece of interactive fiction ever created, but quality-of-life changes to the original formula make the journey feel more personal for individual players. The multiple endings really seal the deal, meaning you’re in for heartbreak or everlasting love.

It's an "AOL chat simulator", where you're messaging two friends. They message you with all sorts of files and web links (click those, they're cool), and after a while this just feels like a natural conversation. There's a lot of references to 2006-2007 pop culture, so you have to be reasonably old to enjoy it (ideally in your late 20's). Best part is the story that unfolds via this messaging. It feels well written and very responsive to your choices. My ending felt very strong and left me somewhat in disarray, but in a good way. Full Review »

Визуально игра просто невероятно, а эта интернет-культура настолько родная даже в этой стране, что можно пустить слезу от ностальгии. Крутая реализация, шикарный дизайн и действительно интересная история -- все в этой игре. Незаслуженно пропущенная инди-готи 2017. Full Review »
