An interactive years-long diary about children and cruel interactions, July 1, 2017

In this game, you are reading through diary entries of a young child going through several years of school. It's a twine-type game, and it has a large scope, going through several years at a fast space.

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.

Real-life horror, October 25, 2016
by Owlor (Sweden)
This is a story of growing up that does not shy away from showing the terrible things kids can do to each other. It contains very frank depictions of bullying, violence and rape that could hit a bit too close to home for some people, but it has a powerful message about the cost of complacency that I think people should experience.
