"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.

This game is amazing. I am speechless, but at the same time I have so much to say about it.
Everything flowed so well together! I had my doubts about the game-within-a-game thing, but it blended perfectly with the story. It didn’t feel awkward or complicated or forced. I also love how there’s options for your character. You can choose your own race, age, and gender (more than two!) and all the options for these categories are extremely inclusive. It’s great. I also love the humor and interactions between all the characters. They seemed very genuine. The philosophical questions really make you think, and so do all of the choices you are presented with. I have no shame in saying that I thought very hard before choosing anything. The waiting isn’t bad at all, it’s nothing compared to other story games. And the price for premium isn’t unreasonable either. I can tell that a lot of effort was put into the game, and it’s rare to see such a developed story in most games now. I appreciated it a lot. Kudos to the author!
Makes You Think
This game was a wonderful play. It really makes you speechless by the end of it. You develop strong bonds with the characters and really get to know them and their personalities, and yet there's still more to learn. The story constantly makes you want more as you progress and continue to figure it out. I also liked the interactive touch they used in allowing you to get to know certain people over others. They challenge you in what you think of life's philosophical questions. Refraining from spoiling anything, I'd have to say my favorite part was when you were playing your own person and trying to figure out what your doing wrong. In the end it wasn't exactly the one I was hoping for but still amazing and left me speechless nontheless. And they leave a little surprise for you at the end that made things feel more worked out and ended to me.
The game gets you hooked from the beginning, and instantly throughs you into this beautiful universe. You're intrigued from the beginning. I love the fact that there are options for sexuality but mostly gender! I have never seen a game that lets you choose trans male, trans female, "person," and other along with cis male and cis female. Not only that, but there are options within the game that bring up the lack of gender diversity (along with many others.) I love how this game dealt with serious topics and featured a wonderfully diverse cast. Thank you so much for creating this magnificent game, it left me speechless. I hope to see many more like it in the future. I believe these games could make a huge impact on the world.
