Reviews

“Master class of short form from Party for Introverts and a unique sensation that you make choices for an adult, but play for two characters at the same time. [Мастер-класс короткой формы от студии Party For Introverts и удивительное ощущение, когда делаешь выборы только за взрослого, а отыгрываешь как будто двух персонажей сразу]”

“...this short game conveys, in a surprisingly realistic fashion, the first 15 minutes after the car is loaded with luggage, the child is strapped with a safety belt, and the only thing left to do is to turn the ignition key. [...эта небольшая игра на удивление реалистично передаёт первые 15 минут после того как машина загружена вещами, ребёнок пристёгнут и осталось лишь повернуть ключ зажигания.]”

“An example of how to tell a super story in 15 minutes... It cost pennies, takes 15 minutes, worth your tears. [Пример того, как за 15 минут рассказать суперисторию... Стоит копейки, проходится за 15 минут, стоит ваших слез.]”

About This Game

Michelle is nauseous every car trip. A ginger lozenge may make her feel a little better, but this morning that’s a lot of pressure for a hard candy.

“A Lozenge” is a short interactive story about motion sickness, dedicated to children of divorce. In the format of a 10-minute visual novel, it lets the player join Lucy and Michelle on their mother-daughter road trip.

They will play as Lucy, a newly separated mother of a 9-year old, Michelle. They will hear Lucy’s thoughts, feel her doubts and anxieties and help her comfort her daughter by making occasional dialogue choices.

“A Lozenge” is the third in Party for Introverts’ anthology of emotion-driven interactive short stories, along with “Thing-in-Itself” and “From Head to Toe”.



Features:
  • 10-minute interactive story with grounded emotional narrative
  • Hear Lucy’s thoughts, feel her anxieties and help her pick the right words to support her daughter
  • Unique, digitally painted artstyle
  • Original music score by Alex Francois
