I don't really know what to say about Lovey.

Lovey is an interactive-nonfiction game about coming to terms with my gender identity in the midst of an abusive relationship.

I worked on it for almost a year and a half, creating and scrapping and wording and rewording and rewording.

When I started work on it, I had just started healing, and was still in denial about a lot of things.

Making this game helped me come to terms with and process my abuse, and I hope that if you've ever found yourself in a similar situation, it can help you process yours.

Remember that you are loved.

what a striking game...visually it's stunning (the claustrophobia of the rooms fought in, the approaching handprint, the journey between facial features, the colors as you progress into the sunrise, the COLORS period) and as a work of writing it's...piercing. so so so gorgeous. thank you for sharing this. i wish you a future full of sunrises
