Interesting story and game layout. I wish the writing was a little bit better though and the story itself more developed.
A Stranger In Need
A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows and macOS
It's 1999. The online world is becoming more accessible to the average citizen and instant messaging is still the latest communication craze. Young Bob, fresh out of high school, is reveling in every minute of it, but he soon finds himself to be the only apparent link to the outside world for a sixteen-year-old girl. Will he be able to help this stranger in need?
The story is based on something that happened to me in 1999. Fortunately I got the good ending in real life, but I always wondered what would've happened if I had made different choices. This game was an opportunity for me to explore that.
