Girls are mean! – [Author’s Description]
Quit playing it pretty early on – felt guilty for the horrible things I was doing.
I played it three times including a total pacifist run (my first run was a mostly pacifist run). Game’s a great depiction of bullying and senseless, unmotivated hatred.
(And I can’t ever get enough of BentoSmile’s visual design sense and illustrations.)
First run was a pacifist run, I couldn’t bring myself to choose any of the bullying options. It was very frightening, brought back a few bad memories. I went back and explored the other options, even though I found it difficult to do so.
Fascinating as always, Bento Smile…
Well done; the problem needs more attention than it gets.
Semi-spoiler: I found what I assume is the “pacifist” ending, and two similar “bully” endings, in which the avatar did and did not get caught bullying. Even at that, I think the game made its point, but is there a “worse” ending hiding in the dialogue tree somewhere?
