Description

New Emily, New Choices

Emily is Away Too is an interactive story set in an old instant messenger. Message both Emily and Evelyn as you determine the outcome of your senior year. Extend the story past the chat window with youtube links, facebook profiles and file transfers. And most importantly, change your text color to lime green so everyone knows you're the coolest kid in school.

Features

  • Chat with two seperate characters, Emily and Evelyn.
  • A dialogue-based branching narrative with multiple endings.
  • Transmedia storytelling through hyperlinks and file transfers.
  • Over 100 nostalgia-inducing buddy icons to choose from.
  • Awkward high school memories you were happy to forget!

History

Emily is Away Too is the spiritual successor to the critically accalimed original. Like "Emily is Away" you use dialogue decisions to choose your path through a branching narrative, all encapsulated in the skin of a 2000's instant messenger. New features include customizable buddy info, talking to two characters simultaneously, and true multiple ending support. Emily Too also behaves much more like a chat application, allowing for links to facebook, youtube and file transfers. The new features open up the possibilities for interesting narrative design while still feeling true to the original.
