Thrusday, July 25th.
Get home from work.
Check out Jessie Cox's channel on youtube to see if he's uploaded a new video for his 'Game Dev Tycoon' series
See an animation in his favourites videos section.
I Watch it. At the end, he's crying.
"Woah, what is this game?"
Clicks on link to the original video. Start watching.
"What the hell is this crap?"
No doubt its some kind of pervy Sim Girls like game (remember that from newgrounds?)
The opening FMV plays and the hospital scene starts.
I've worked in hospitals for nearly 7 years, I seen and heard these conversations many times.
"Woah, this is being played straight. I give it credit."
Video ends after the first cafeteria scene.
"To wikipedia!"
"Wow, it started on 4chan? The very definition of indie gaming. Lets have a go."
Downloads and starts playing

Goes after blond Amazon lass.
"Ah, she's nice! I like being round her"


Ends up with armless psycho painter bitch.
"WTF!"
The fireworks start. I stop moaning.

Saturday, July 27th.
Its around around 01.30 and I have a decision to make in the atelier. I have 3 options to pick.
"Holy shit! Its never given me three choices before!"
I'm tired. I've got work in the morning. I don't understand her. I demand she explains herself.
Bad ending. Credits roll.
"Wait...what happened...why isn't passing of time playing...its over...you can get bad endings? Shit!"
I retry and do another hour or so before I go to bed.

Get back from work. I'm shattered
At 18:39, I have another decision to make.
"People are liking your work woman! Why aren't you happy?"
Neutral ending. aka 'even worse than all bad endings put together.'
"Teh feels!"
Reload save.
A field of dandelions.
"I love you..."


I'm addicted. Power through Emi's route that evening.
When Emi infected legs cause her to stumble, I panic and reload from the last decision.
"OMG Emi, I should have pressed the matter than let it slide, I'm so sorry that you got hurt.
Its the only time where I go back on a decision. Thankfully, its means nothing the grand scheme of the plot.
Get the good ending without Misha's help. Lovely route.


Sunday July 28th.
I'm in work for the last day before 2 weeks of annual leave and suffering from malaise due to an overdose of feels.
Feels nearly overpower me, and I slump against the wall depressed for everyone to see.

I get home and start Shizune's route.
I'm feeling bored.
"Please comfort me, Hicchan. Just for today?"
"Welp, lets save the game and get the bad ending over with."
Unsexy sexy time!.
Bad ending! What a surprise.
"Meh, don't give a damn 'cause I knew it would happen. Reload save!"
I get the good end, I still don't give a damn.


Managed to fit in the Manly Picnic for the lolz.

Monday July 29th.
Its 13:36 and I'm playing Hanako's route. Calling Lilly,
"I tried to amend this before leaving, but it seems to have done little"
"[sass]FUCK YOU LILLY! I do what I want. I'm gonna talk to Hanako![/sass]"
Bad end.
"Well...shit...that was unexpected...lets try that again"
Bad end again!
"Shit! What the fuck have I done!"
Consults a guide.
"Oh, accumulative score. Never considered that. Should have taken her to town"
Good ending
"Ah, what a sweet final image to end on!"
Happy feels.


Straight after that, I'm like
"Well, Lilly, I wanted to start with you, but I feel it seems fitting that I end with you."
Can't remember much of the feels until 'farewell'.
"No.[sob]. No. It can't be ending like this. [sob]"
Expect credits to roll. They don't. I still have a chance!
Heart attack.
"Woah...it ends like this."
Expect credits to roll. They don't! I still have a chance!
OMG!!!!!! The music box!!!!! AAAHHHH!!!!!!!
Credits roll.
"I can't believe it all ov...waitwhatsthis!?"
My fifth and final girl has a epilogue. How fitting.


Tuesday July 30th. Teh feels become too much to bear and I finally cry.

Thursday August 1st. After seven years of inactivity, I start exercising again by swimming daily. Just over a month later, I've lost a stone. And it wasn't peer pressure from the family and it wasn't the overbearing Government health campaigns that made me do. I was inspired by a girl with no legs. God bless you Emi.

Logic I had was the everyone that used green text did Emi's route, so I concluded that people would use colours depending on the girl they were talking about.
