Firstly, thanks a whole bunch to the devs for reaching out to me and pointing me in the direction of their game! I'm always happy (and honoured) to be asked!
Now then, onto the game itself. Interactive stories like this one can be a real challenge to pull off, but this one does a cracking job of it by using some great little tactics.
The first one is the subtle use of music cues and sound effects. When you're not relying on action and movement in a game, the soundtrack needs to be really on point, and Do Not Love has a great little soundtrack interlaced with some also great sounds!
Secondly the story is riveting, and the choices we have to make as the game progresses are all really tough ones. Agonizing ones! Life defining ones for our character and the people around him. This really makes you invested in who you play as, who you interact with and the world around you.
Really, it's a top notch job with likable characters (even the protagonist!), a great plot and a whole raft of different endings to discover by choosing different paths! Only one ending for me so far but I'm going to dig around for more for sure and I encourage you all to do so too.
As for the devs, keep up the awesome work! I really enjoyed this =)
