  • Don't believe the negative reviews Feb 20, 2017

    By Amy SG
    Other reviews claiming this game is "too political" aren't taking into account the fact that a) this game is aimed at middle and high school-aged players, who need more media that engages with them on their level in an approachable way about current affairs so they can stay informed and involved and b) the creator of the game gave a statement before the mini-episode that automatically starts the game, saying they wanted to create a special mini-episode to help people (youth in particular) deal with a post-election America. That subject matter cannot be apolitical, by definition, and if urging people to care and be involved is preachy, then I don't know what to tell you. Aside from that, the representation in this game is great. None of the characters feel like a token, and the developers really made a gender- and culturally-inclusive game. Representation matters, and it's important that young people see people like them in our media so they know that they matter. So download the game. At least get past the protest-themed mini-episode and into the main game before writing it off. Gift it to a young person in your life. We need more inclusivity the game industry, and it's important we support the studios that are seeking to create change.

    Where to begin? Well, I pretty much started this on Monday night. Pretty much played non-stop for four days and gotta say, BEST FOUR DAYS EVER! I haven’t experienced many games like this but the story for this was absolutely amazing. What I really want, and many fans probably agree with this, is a season two. I want to explore high school as the main character and I want to see how the friends all stay together. I’d love to see new characters too. I understand that it’s hard to produce games especially considering money, but in honesty this game holds a rather big message that not many people except maybe someone with fresh experience. See I’m currently seventeen. For me, the last day of middle is a couple years ago, but I still visit those experiences. Now I wasn’t as nosy but I did look into stuff otherwise ignored. Anyways....getting off what is a crazy explanation and just going to cut this into simplicity, beautiful game, love the art, the stories, the responses, a season would be good but just take your time. Heck, let us know if you need support. But we’ll be here. You the developers have our (the players) support. And I just want to say thank you for making this game.

  • Amazing! Feb 15, 2017

    By IPrincessZeldaI
    This is literally the best fricking game in the App Store. Being bi myself, I felt like this app gave me so many options! The only problems I DID have is that one, if I bought episode 2 and others, and I'm thinking about just buying all of them, I wish you could buy a bundle of the packs, and it wouldn't charge you for the ones you already purchased??? Secondly, The new special chapter with "President Lump" was great because it was FREE, but it made me a little uncomfortable because I know there are probably some people who supported "Lump" (I know this is a ripoff of Trump) I understand no one has the exact same views, so I won't share my opinion... but I would like y'all to know, I think it's showing that the company is very one sided on political-ness (lol not a word) I'm not saying I agree or disagree; I just don't want political issues to take over this LGBTQ+ game. Once again, this is my favorite game in existence! -A random bisexual reviewer

    I love this app so so much and the fact that we can have our own sexual preferences near the end for the first episode. but, I would give it 5 stars but for the reason for that 1 star taken was because I have to pay for episode 2.. I do not have the money for the second episode.. I would rather have a time limit / 1 hour cool down for the next episode. Yet again I do not have the money to pay because I don’t know how to get money on me phone because I am a kid, and it would be so helpful. Another suggestion is that, use the gems/ diamonds/ coins to buy the episodes! And have the diamonds/gems/coins have a cool down break. I really want to know what happens instead of skipping to episode 9 because I can’t buy the other episodes, overall this is an amazing app and people should use it more

    I haven't played the protest episode yet, but I play the main story. It was a bit pricey, but I understand where the devs are coming from. It's probably a good 5-10 hour game depending on speed of play. I loved the representation in this game. I'm so happy all around. I hope the devs release more storylines. I'd love to see it continued. I can tell they really cared about this project. Everything about it is beautiful. I may be a big too emotional sometimes, but this game made me feel the emotions of the character. Now don't get me wrong the game can use some work. There are a few spelling/grammar mistakes in the dialogue, but nothing so bad that took away from the story. There were times that I feel like the character wasn't really following how I wanted it to act, but I know it's hard to build in the many storylines to fit each player.

  • Purchased all but two levels and it erased my progress Jul 3, 2018

    By mpbrennan
    I downloaded this game within the past week after seeing it on the App Store main page with great reviews. I played two of the three game saves, both mostly through the game. I opened the game yesterday to find that all my progress, game saves, and purchases had been erased. Restoring purchased content did nothing, even after it acknowledged the success of my restoration. Upon clicking the “continue” button, I was repeatedly met with some error message about URL invalid story scripts, then the app would close itself. I saw great importance in the lessons of this game, and for such reason, was willing to purchase the chapter upgrades. Absolutely no chance under the Sun of paying for them twice though, and if given the option, I would request a refund for the chapters already purchased, being as all content/progress disappeared overnight and no updates (or option to report issues) have been presented. After reviewing previous reviews, it seems this app has had major long-standing technical errors over the course of its existence, so it’s a shame that this persists even after its recent feature on the home page.

  • About that “Bonus” Episode Jul 1, 2019

    By AppEnthusiast 119
    Now after going through the first episode, my hopes were extremely high. We had a cast of great characters and an interesting story waiting to be unfolded. However, after going though the “Bonus” episode, my. high expectations crashed hard. Even though the bonus episode wasn’t supposed to be apart of the story, so much information was spoiled to me simply by reading it. The problems don’t stop their, What absolutely broke me was that the bonus was just a rehash of the 2016 election. Why do we need to talk about an election that happened over 3 years ago?! Not to mentioned how horrific and out of control some of these riots became. “Long Story” seems to be an incredible story of kids coming out and becoming a change in the world; but all that falls apart once politics are brought up. Next time, maybe talk about issues and events that are a little more recent and important.

  • We Need More Games Like This Aug 19, 2017

    By The real Jashei
    I love this game! It does things that other dating sims/Otome apps don't do. If you look up dating sims and Otome game on the iOS store, there are almost no LGBTQ+ games. Most of these games have a clear female protagonist and even the ones that are supposed to be BL (Boys Love) have a female protagonist. This game lets you pick a character and non-binary pronouns for those who use them. I do have a couple of issues with this game though. I do agree that there should be more customization options, and the text is very small and difficult to read. Also there are reviews that say that the game promotes "liberal ideas" the game is actually focusing on current events, it's NOT forcing you to agree with those ideas. The whole point of the game is to make your own love story.

  • AMAZING Jun 1, 2018

    By K.J the random
    This game is truly amazing, when I find games like choose your story, everyone is straight and has an automatic person they like but this is so much different. It supports lgtbq+ which is amazing and also being non binary. 2 things that could make the game better: 1, the money; it’s very expensive to play through and sometimes seemingly not worth it, I think it would be better with a few adds but lowered down I at least a dollar. 2, bugs; there are a few bugs here and there but a big one is being the skin with short hair when they are talking to Nora, some of Nora’s messages say they are on your side. Overall, this is a great game but being expensive is a problem for people who can’t afford that much on apps. I would much rather have a few adds.

  • Awesome game! Nov 29, 2019

    By SerenTheEmo
    This game is awesome, I love how you can pick what pronouns you use and what you look like. So far, the story is really good. My only problem with this game is that you have to pay $1.99 for almost all the chapters. That’s kind of expensive. I would love to know what the rest of the story is, but cant really pay for that. My suggestion is that to get to play the chapter, maybe instead of paying for each episode, have the person play an ad and it’s free for at least 18 hours or less. Whatever you think is good. And once the time is up, you have to watch an ad again to play it. Other than that, I love how it’s lgbt+ friendly! I hope they make more games like this! The story is really good so far. ^^b

  • What an interesting experience Nov 19, 2017

    By Geminidrake
    I truly enjoyed my experience playing this game. I’m glad it had updated so that you can date the one you’ve been trying to date instead of automatically throwing you into a forced relationship, as well as allowing you to decide your school at the end. I wasn’t too thrilled with the “Dump” story. Personally I don’t think politics should be a part of games like these and it kinda made the characters a little unlikeable. Then again, I’m not in high school and this game wasn’t aimed for people like me. I say give it a shot. It’s pretty good. Could use some fixing up in the audio department on some occasions, but nothing too major.

  • Nice story, pricey chapters Jun 21, 2019

    By Lunascopic
    I guess first and foremost I should say; I absolutely love the game. The art is cute, the characters and lovely, and while choices and reactions aren’t something I would do, you can’t please everyone. But to pay $1.99 per chapter is a bit much. I would much rather pay a $5.00 fee to buy the game then pay per chapter. The episodes aren’t long enough to be “worth” the cost and while I hate to say it, I’m probably not going to be buying episodes 5 and up unless I had an iTunes gift card. It’s something worth considering honestly, making all chapters one fee versus pay per chapter, especially because visual novels and dating sims on pc (and some on mobile) can be bought for under $10 and tend to be much longer (both overall and per part) But all that aside, the game is beautiful and encompasses teenage life wonderfully. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve done on it.

  • This app is okay, but... Jan 3, 2020

    By Kelly Chen 🐰🌈
    I downloaded this app because I really wanted to play a story game. I found this app and decided to download it. I played the first episode for a few hours and really liked it. Then, I came back to the episode page and saw that the 2nd episode costed $1.99! I was really depressed because I couldn’t afford it. (Yes, I can’t afford it and I have $0.00.) I really loved the app, but was heartbroken after seeing that you have to pay for episodes. If I have to watch an ad to get an episode, I would’ve done it by now and continued playing without writing a review! I was just so disappointed. There is one favor I have and I really want you to do it. (This is for the developer/developers.) My favor is can you please make the episodes free? You can make people watch an ad for a free episode if you want, but all I want is a way for the episodes to be free. Thanks for reading. - Sincerely, Kelly

  • Very good but misleading Jun 25, 2018

    By plantboy02
    I really loved the first episode and what it had going for it!! It showed LGBTQ characters in non stereotypical ways, many races, and interesting overall story line. I rated it a three star because sadly I could only play the first episode. I wasn’t aware I got 1 episode and had to pay $2 every time I wanted to play a new episode (probably $10 or more just to finish the story) and to me it just wasn’t worth it. But if you’re okay with spending that much money (multiple story lines that you could choose so if you wanted to play them all that could be over $50) then I suggest you get this game because it’s very funny and lets you decide your own fate unlike most games :) happy playing (or in some cases like mine “happy playing for 1 episode” lol)
