About this game

"Creatures Such As We" is a philosophical interactive romance novel by Lynnea Glasser, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Living on the moon is lonely, and stressful, and exhausting. Video games have always offered you an escape to a better life. The easy, happy life you wish you had. Which makes it so frustrating when the game you've been playing ends badly. But you have a chance to figure it out, because the next tourist group is the designers. You can debate with them about art, inspire them with the beauty of outer space, get closer to any one specific designer in particular, and finally find out how to get the ending you always wanted.

Creatures Such As We is a fun choose-your-own-adventure styled text-based game, within a game. It's characters are at once unique, realistic, quirky, and endearing. The story is a meta plot to itself, with interesting social interactions, and a few challenging questions along the way. My first playthrough was only 4 or 5 sessions, and I expect several more to come.

It isn't just a romance story but a philosophical one too! It goes over so possible many options and dialogues with each character as you get to know more about them, about the structure and hardships of making video games and comparing that to art which I find enlightening and entertaining. It's something that I personally find uplifting anytime I play it.

Really incredible game and story. Incredibly realistic characters, vivid and imersive descriptions and options that genuinely make you feel like your own person within the game. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has a heart. I got really attached to everyone and felt so much like apart of that world. I really miss it now that I've finished the game but it was worth it to play. A true display of progress in storytelling.
