Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths
Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.
There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.
Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.
Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves.
this game made me cry omfg
My worst fear…. and I’m living something so similiar.
My “friend” found my tumblr, even after I asked her not to look for it. This was a month ago. I forgave her. But she told me she had only known it for a day. She lied. She had known since I got it. My depression, self harm, sexuality… everything I kept secret… she knew. Knows. And she lied. I wasn’t READY to tell her. She knew that. I told her there were things I didn’t want her to know on my tumblr. But she just lied.
I miss you. I know you probably will see this. You’ve probably been looking at my blog after you found it, even though I told you not to. I miss you more than anything. You were my best friend, even though you didn’t know it. We were gonna go to a con! Now every time I hear your name its all I have not to cry.
I fucking cried playing this game
I’m so paranoid to tell my parents
At least my dad accepts it
See my about me for more details
Don’t get me started.
a post where I explain with images how foxes are the best thing ever, and how if you disagree you are obviously wrong
a fox was following me around while i was jogging, they’re the most entertaining little gems
do you ever get the feeling that your friends just dont care
“But if you forget to reblog Madame Zeroni, you and your family will be cursed for always and eternity.”
not even risking that shit
How can people think that gay couples shouldn’t be allowed children. I don’t know about you , but this is the happiest family I’ve ever seen.
We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
My girlfriend walked outside this morning to see this, a bunch of snails in a circle with leader in the middle.
okay but imagine having a house right on the timezone boundary
"bedtime is 11!"
"KITCHEN 11 OR LIVING ROOM 11??"
"mom we’re gonna be late!"
"nah, it’s at bathroom 5 not bedroom 5"
"man I only got like 2 hours of sleep!"
"well I got 3, I rolled over the boundary in my sleep"

It has come to my attention that there are fully legal adults who are not familiar with this, who do not know what to do when they hear it, and indeed, were born after it came out.
This is unacceptable.
It is irrevocably tattooed into the brain of anyone vaguely associated with Western culture who was old enough to form cognizant memories in the mid 90s. And yes, we can all do the dance. I guarantee you Dean Winchester can do the dance. Bobby can do the dance. Sherlock can do the dance. Tony Stark has made sure all his robots can do the dance.
And all of you over the age of 25 already know what it is before you press play.
I REMEMBER THIS.
My Brain: This better not be what I think it’s gonna be.
It: *is what I thought it was going to be*
Me: *throws things out the window*
There are people who don’t know this song??
HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW HOW TO DO THE DANCE
Wait a minute- SOME PEOPLE DONT KNOW THIS?????????
I WAS AT MY COUSIN’S WEDDING AND ALL THE NEW IN-LAWS WERE FOUR BEATS OFF THE ENTIRE TIME AND MY SISTER AND I NOW HAVE A DEEP MISTRUST OF THEM
