    Even for I free I doubt I’ll waste my time with a teenage hipster game.

    Yeah, but this is like an episodic version of Gone Home, because it hooks you on a concept then just throws it all in the trash at the end.
    “Keep rewinding until you get it right, because choices matter”
    Nope! Spoiler alert: your decisions don’t actually influence jack shit. No matter what you do, the game plays one of 2 static endings.

    They really are…pushing the lesbian angle in that new trailer.

    Why would I download the game just so I can play the game about the whiny teenagers and if I’m not mistaken one of them is voiced by Ashley Burch? No thanks.

    Only if it is bundled with a snarky youtuber tearing apart every scene.

    I’ve only played the first episode so far, and a while back at that, but I liked it. It kept my interest.

    I tried the first part, not amazing, but you have more interactivity than any telltale game…

    So this is a giant “Fuck you!” to anyone dumb enough to have paid for the game.

    I heard it’s yuri, but not the kind I can fap to. Is that right?

    well arguably its only a fuck you to those who bought the first episode

    i think you are exaggerating, the episode is worth only like 5 bucks and people had to wait a year to get it for free

    I believe they just slightly changed their pricing structure. You can’t buy episodes 2-5 anymore, you have to buy all 5. So the price was slightly increased to include Ep. 1. But if you bought it already, you get a discount.
