Who ever said you can't go back?
LongStory, a charming and LGBTQ+ friendly dating sim set at the weirdly lovable Weasel Heights Middle School lets you pick your pronouns as well as who, or even if, you would like to date any of your romanceable friends.

Ratings and Reviews
I recently bought this game and I like it. I love how it’s so open and you can have a lot of different relationships. Definitely worth the 12 dollars. But there are some things that would be better, for ones, at least for me, the game only allows me to play it when my tablet is upside down. No screen turning of any sort. This comes as a hassle when my tablet case is only useable when the home button is on the right so I can’t prop up the tablet when I play the game. Also, I would like the dialogue to the chat so I can go back and read it. Many instances I would accidentally press the screen and I wasn’t able to read the msg. I would either have to go back and redo the reading from the last chat choice or skip it and hope it wasn’t important. One last thing that could be a change for the better is maybe being able to go back more than just one chat choice, sorry I forgot what they are called, because sometimes when I go back and choose one just because I wanted to see what would happen, I would run into another chat choice and I couldn’t go back and change the first chat choice. I would have to redo the whole chapter so I didn’t randomly become a jerk to my boyfriend. Other than that I love this game and would definitely recommend it. I love the style and the choices that you get to make in the game. Especially with the LGBTQ part. It did help me see some insight on LGBTQ and I love that. This is a totally amazing game and would buy it again!
I loved this game so much, it was totally worth my money... take it all! Just kidding. But in all honesty I loved having a game that I could relate to, and not only is that exciting but it's exciting to know that it's not only relatable to me but to so many other types of people as well. I started playing this when there were only a few episodes and you couldn't even pick pronouns or the character appearance and they were still working on that stuff, and it's great to see how far they came. I love it, and the fact that they go over non-binary issues, racism, sexism, and LGBTQ+ among many others and they execute it so well with the characters. It warms my heart to know there are people out there that believe what I do, that everyone is entitled to respect and rights as a human being. Being an African American Gay Male it's great to find a game that relates to me. I loved the online friend dynamic as well, although I've never met mine irl I have an online friend and we are almost the same way with each other; as Nora and [the player] are. Thank you so much for this experience, it was great and well worth the ride and totally not staying up past midnight to go through the game and write a review... <3 this was an amazing game. I can not thank you enough, you've made my night and the rest of my days ^^ (review #2 cause I messed up #1 T^T)
Don't believe the negative reviews
Other reviews claiming this game is "too political" aren't taking into account the fact that a) this game is aimed at middle and high school-aged players, who need more media that engages with them on their level in an approachable way about current affairs so they can stay informed and involved and b) the creator of the game gave a statement before the mini-episode that automatically starts the game, saying they wanted to create a special mini-episode to help people (youth in particular) deal with a post-election America. That subject matter cannot be apolitical, by definition, and if urging people to care and be involved is preachy, then I don't know what to tell you.
Aside from that, the representation in this game is great. None of the characters feel like a token, and the developers really made a gender- and culturally-inclusive game. Representation matters, and it's important that young people see people like them in our media so they know that they matter.
So download the game. At least get past the protest-themed mini-episode and into the main game before writing it off. Gift it to a young person in your life. We need more inclusivity the game industry, and it's important we support the studios that are seeking to create change.
