I finally choose 'The Forensics Artist' because my father always loved mystery novels but never really had the chance to read many due to near-constant work. I remember that whenever I would finally be able to drag him to the library he would go to the mystery section and just stand there thumbing though the books while I checked out the fantasy novels. I think he actually would've loved this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this game, from the atmospheric music, to the visuals, to the splices of comedy thrown here and there- it all was incredible.

Escogí sin pensar, mi padre nunca merecería un regalo mío. Se me hizo muy ajeno poder ver a alguien preocuparse así por un padre, supongo que es un sentimiento que desearía tener.
Muy bonito el juego. No os rindáis
My dad loves me but has actively stopped trying to understand me or be invested in my life. I nearly went with Tapenade since he has an interest in traditional Japanese art, but I chickened out and got My Cute Neighbor as the safe choice of something I know he'll feel warmly towards. I don't know that there's much point in making anything other than the safe choice with him at this point anymore.
I have very complex feelings about my dad, and this did nothing to help. I ended up calling him and we had a 24-minute conversation--about 20 minutes longer than usual. I brought this game up, and he digressed (predictably) into superhero comics, and not sure where it went from there. Also discussed politics, masculinity/femininity, family, military, and some other stuff. This empowered me to continue the conversation beyond the usual small talk. I don't think he has the capacity to really have a lengthy conversation about anything, but this was close enough. Thank you!
This was such a nice comment to read! Have you called your dad and had a longer conversation again lately? My reply comes very late, but maybe this can inspire you to have another one of those conversations now if you hadn't in awhile :) Best wishes!
Elegí Essays on empathy por conocer los temas que trata y siempre acabo reglando cosas que ya he leído y me han gustado para compartirlos con otras personas. De alguna forma he acabado proyectando en el juego mis gustos y los de mi padre y lo he sentido bastante personal. Además, me ha encantado en cuanto a construcción de personajes que cada elección no solo dice algo sobre los gustos del padre si no también sobre los del protagonista y los conoces a través de los pequeños detalles.
Seguid haciendo lo que hacéis! Keep on keeping on!
I love this. As someone who tries to be very thoughtful with gifts, the thought processes of the main character--and especially putting comics back and picking them up again and again with indecision--were really relatable. I got "Essays on Empathy" after going between it and "Alberto, I read you and I feel more free" a few times.
I chose My Cute Neighbor because it's cute and inoffensive and then probably bought sextories for myself. :p
I pictured my father and chose the forensics guy
I chose 'My cute neighbour' because... it probably would be what I'd pick for my dad, if he were still alive. He used to be a dog person and never liked cats, but that changed when I was nine years old and we took in a kitten we found in the streets. He would still grumble that he didn't like them, but every time he found the cat sleeping on his office chair he would go and get another chair to sit in, so as not to disturb his nap :) It was so cute. So this is why I picked this book - because I bet he would've been all why-are-you-getting-me-a-cats-comic, but he would've secretly loved it.
'Touching but bittersweet' would be indeed a good way to describe this game. I loved reading all the book descriptions and reviews, wishing I could read them myself and enjoying the beautiful soundtrack all while browsing and exploring my own thoughts and feelings. Thank you for another beautiful little gem, can't wait for the next one <3
I chose "Pulsar Code" because I'm researching this theme (magic etc.) at the moment and would love to read a comic like this! (And I also use tarot sometimes and the characters comment about it made me chuckle lol) But I liked all the comics, because they all have an important theme and uniqueness that I find interesting. Keep it up!
I chose “my cute neighbour” in the end! I loved going through all the quotes, reviews, and, especially, the internal thoughts. Short game but really resonated with me.
Deconstructeam’s creations never seem to disappoint me when looking for a touching but bittersweet experience!
Precioso!! Finalmente, decidí llevar el cómic acerca del padre y del hijo (Claro que Alberto estuvo cerca de ser mi elección). Gran soundtrack, y muy buen trabajo capturando las minucias de la representación LGBT+, y los problemas que surgen entre las minorías sexuales y sus figuras paternas, sin olvidar, que generalmente el afecto sigue existiendo.
Sigan así ! <3
