About the StoryA comedy in four parts about exciting games of instinct and wits, set in childhood. Not necessarily for children.

The Breakfast Review
I personally found it quite interesting to see how our relationships with various characters changed from one playthrough to the next ... although, fair warning, I don't think a lot of them matter to the final crisis and resolution. I would have liked to have pursued more alternatives with these characters, though: see what happens if I join with the bullies, or try to be better friends with one character or another.

This is a fairly brutal look at childhood. It takes the form of a series of diary entries written by a schoolboy over the course of four years, from the ages 10 through 13. Each entry ends in a choice, or occasionally two choices in succession. The choices donít always correspond to decisions on the part of the player character ó sometimes you just decide how the PC felt about something that happened. Thatís because what youíre really choosing here isnít primarily the sequence of events, but what kind of person the PC is becoming.

An interactive years-long diary about children and cruel interactions, July 1, 2017
You have several friends you interact with, with mechanics keeping track of the relationships, but I found this fairly opaque; I wished I had more feedback on my choices. One nice feature was that choices you were not able to make due to past choices were crossed out, showing you 'what could have been'.
The game treats very serious subjects, including sexual assault. The biggest drawback to me was having trouble seeing how my choices relate to the pages you reach.
