I made a video review.   


There are lots of things going on here that I really like. I love the safety tools. I love how inclusive this game is. I love the thirst mechanic-- which can be exactly as chaste or hungry as you want it. It's like if all of my favourite parts of queer culture and old school games started grinding on each other and I'm here for it.

Thank you! Big announcement coming tomorrow about print copies as well!
