LongStory: A Dating Game for the Real World
A progressive, queer-positive dating game for tweens and teens.
LongStory: A Dating Game for the Real World is a queer-positive dating-mystery-relationship game for pre-teens that doesn’t shy away from difficult topics like homosexual identity, bullying, healthy sexuality, fitting in, standing out, and figuring out what normal is.
When the previous owner of Locker 1224 mysteriously disappeared, you are left holding the only clues. It is up to you, a girl in her early teens to navigate the school’s social landscape through your decisions and conversations. The gameplay is structured as an interactive comic in which you solve puzzles and build relationships with new friends and old enemies to work out exactly what happened – and if there’s anything you can do to make it right.
Players test approaches to romance, flirting, vulnerability and emotional awareness while solving the mystery and negotiating new social realities. If you manage to work up the nerve to ask out your crush, there are 5 datable characters in Long Story: Two girls, two boys, and one… well, you’ll have to wait and see. LongStory Episode 2 is now available for iOS and Android.
