A dating game for the real world

It's a LongStory...

Welcome to Weasel Heights, the school as weird as it’s name and you are it’s newest student. Get to know, Colin, Nora, Marcel and Abby and a few more loveable characters in this charming LGBTQ friendly dating sim. Help solve the mystery of a student’s disappearance, deal with the bullies HanniferJane and avoid getting stuck in a meditation meeting with the befuddled Principal Chevy. A unique experience, LongStory explores important issues such as social anxiety, bullying, setting boundaries, sexual orientation and gender identity.

“Okay, so here it goes... This has been one of the only games I've ever played that has made me cry (even though I DON'T want to admit it). I don't know what it is about this game, but it spoke to me. You feel like the other characters are real, and you connect to them!”
“longstory is literally THE BEST game ever. the amount of representation paired with the fantastic storyline + characters makes this such a great game. i'm in love.”
“This game has entertained me so much and I love the story. It's a very different game than majority, better than Episodes or the Kim K game or whatever else there is out there now. Also the menu song is the best thing ever.”

Press

“LongStory presents a world in which gender diversity and equality is accepted as a simple fact, offering a more utopian vision of a tolerant society in which people are judged based on their actions rather than their identities.” - Eric Weiss, PlayBoy
“As I played, my hands were shaking. This was real. This was my story. I never expected to have this kind of visceral experience playing an app game, but it felt strangely cathartic all the same" - FemHype
"By providing an unquestioned safe space for players to experience different kinds of relationship options through the privacy of their cell phone, this game maker has done something profound, making queer lives and relationships into familiar and also more acceptable, achievable and possible options for gamers, whether straight or queer. What's more, "LongStory"'s inclusion of gender neutral play is even more groundbreaking." - Aron Macarow, ATTN
