the pitch:

you play a gas station clerk working her shift on the day the earth is destroyed.



a note from the developer:

hi! it doesn't have to be like this turned out to be a little bit more of a personal project for me, than i expected. from the perspective of the main character, gavin, i try to cover ground relating to human connection and the lack thereof in certain scenarios and i've struggled to write up a typical pitch that also reflects the content in way that isn't thematically atonal. so be aware going in that things'll get dark around the edges and if you aren't in the right head-space for it, you might want to hold off on playing this until you are.

also, the irony isn't lost on me, that i chose now of all times to make a game about the end of the world. if the coronavirus pandemic has put you off from apocalypse fiction, maybe also hold off on giving this a shot. i do want to say though, that i have a general distaste for how dour, cynical, bleak, mean-hearted and ideologically shitty most apocalypse fiction can be and, if you play the title, i do hope that's reflected in the work.


thank you & i hope this game finds you well

I really liked how the choices as links were more subtle and made me less worried about choice paralysis and _game completion_ so I could actually just play the game. 

Both of the endings I did really hit me. Life... *hugs*

The characters and setting really emotionally resonate with me--it's such a beautifully written little game to have a nice, cathartic cry to. Definitely a recent fav!
