I got this from a weekly Humble Bundle because I wanted Betrayer and Naissannce. In addition to those games made by actual game developers, I got this flash "game" about "gender and the economy," made by an internet panhander who calls herself a programmer but has never made anything outside of Flash.
Really glad I paid $3.50 for five games and only obtained this incidentally, because it's barely a game. It's more like a slideshow. It goes a baby step beyond Depression Quest-style walls of text and clickable prompts (several of which were already produced by Ms. Kiai), and ups the ante with annoying, inept singing and repetitive, if quirky BGMs. Other than that it's basically the same thing.
"Interactive fiction" really shouldn't be classed as part of gaming. The very definition of a "game" requires win and loss conditions, use of hand-eye coordination, tests of reflexes, resource management, something, ANYTHING which could amount to actual gameplay.
This, on the other hand, is simply a story being fed to you, with little interaction or thought required on your part. Even the Walking Dead, often mocked as a walking simulator, has moments where you must react quickly or fail, and divergence in its story.
Not that I'm against the idea of interactive fiction pieces, but this trend of interactive fiction involving sociopolitical commentary, social justice issues, etc caters to a specific niche audience and really doesn't lend itself any credibility. People play video games as escapism, not to be reminded of the issues which plague their daily lives, or to be lectured on ♥♥♥♥ they don't care about like "queer issues."
And I say this as someone who fits into the "queer community" by every definition of the word. I don't want to be pandered to. This is cutesy quirky pandering for the Tumblrina crowd, who didn't play or make games until they realized they could be used as a soapbox.
There are two kinds of gamers today: those who care about gameplay, and those who want to fundamentally redefine what a video game is. Guess which camp the creator and applauders of this "game" sit in?
