History

Emily is Away Too is the spiritual successor to the critically accalimed original. It features new characters and a new story, but still builds on the design of the first game. Emily Too will have two opposing characters to chat with, customizable profiles and multiple endings. It also behaves much more like a chat application, allowing for hyperlinks and file transfers. The new features open up the possibilities for interesting narrative design while still feeling true to the original.
