1. A love like a shy tree crowns

2. A love that is an escape

3. A love born in a time of War

4. A love like worst accident

5. A love like full temptation

6. A love that re-discovers, nestles

7. A love full of consequences

 ---

Game-wise this explores a middle ground of CYOA short stories and almost a generative kind of "fanfic". I feel like RPGs that are said to simulate fanfic don't really capture the nebulous imagination and narrative experience of a reader rendering (1) a lover and projecting cohesively a (2) Y/N (Your Name)/ Main Character/self-insert that doesn't sacrifice the thematic structures that are underpinned in a love story.

Such as: Vulnerability, regret. Why we love really? or judgements (not long enough, too greedy etc) of the ones we had. The circumstances of our loving, and what it undoes in us when our hearts unfurl. This is what I hoped to capture in these stories and I hope you remember parts of your heart in playing them as well.

I hope you remember, these things from your Lover.

PS. let me know in the comments who calls you the most, how your play-thrus went.

How come this game is 906 mb large? You may want to compress it or remove some unnecessary files, or offer a low-res version, because that's almost a gig! And my PDF reader is chugging to open it. I don't think I could on mobile.

hello! i uploaded a low-res copy of the PDF now!
