Emily_Is_Away.pngI did try to recreate my university years with the help of emily is away, I really did. If it weren't for the fact that it's a few years too young for me, listens to music I never even knew existed, deeply enjoys instant messaging, has never smoked and lives in a dorm, I believe I would have come close to experiencing nostalgia.

As it is, what I really appreciated in this properly branching interactive story was its incredibly clever presentation and its successfully established atmosphere. It really does feel like chatting and its writing does work, even though I am certain I'm not the target audience. You go have a play. I'm absolutely sure you'll enjoy it, while I just stay here in the heartless bastards' corner.
