The narrative itself is a branching path story full of life. Interact and have unique conversations, finish multiple endings, and explore every opportunity found on the unique website.
You control your character and you craft their personality. Make friends and explore all the features hidden within this unique title. Transport back into the year 2008, and enjoy a time that was very different in communication and online interaction.
The previous titles build up the general story, but this title can be approached without any prior knowledge. Enjoy a casual indie experience that fits the simulation genre. For many that have played this, it is a transformative experience that sends players back to a simpler time.
