Jessica Wynn from Bit Cultures reviews the 2015 Steam Game 'Emily is Away' by Kyle Steeley. The game is an enticing love story that takes place over the course of five years, based entirely in a nostalgia-inducing AIM interface.
Jessica writes: "Ultimately, this is not a story about two people falling in love but growing up. Sometimes we never get to tell people how much we care about them, and sometimes we do, but it’s not the right time. This is a game that, regardless of whether you’ve ever experienced the glare of unspoken words on a screen, aims to illustrate the ambivalence that can engulf a relationship and the difficulty of letting go – not just of those we once so deeply cared for but of our old selves too."
