The Surprise is not trying to do anything major or epic, but it shows us something that is human and as significant as anything can be in a human life. And, if I may be forgiven a horrible pun, it does that one small thing surprisingly well.

A micro-game about an important moment in life, October 2, 2019
(Spoiler - click to show)a used pregancy test in the trash. It was very short, and it comes to my mind often.
This game is a choice game, but has a similar theme. With only a few links in the game, it manages to be pretty tricky at times to advance the story. The styling has been modified somewhat, most notably by some timed text which is pretty appropriately used here.
It's hard to get emotionally involved in such a small game, though, and there is a tug of war between the puzzly link interaction and the heartfelt story. I feel like the interactivity doesn't pair well with the drama.
In any case, as a person I can identify with this moment and the feelings involved, and it brought back vivid real-life memories. I wish them the best!
