On 27th August 2020, Party for Introverts will be releasing their new short interactive story, “A Lozenge”, about a mother-daughter road trip and motion sickness, dedicated to children of divorce.
“A Lozenge” is the third in Party for Introverts’ anthology of emotion-driven interactive short stories, along with “Thing-in-Itself” and “From Head to Toe”.
Michelle is nauseous every car trip. A ginger lozenge may make her feel a little better, but this morning that’s a lot of pressure for a hard candy.
“A Lozenge” is a short interactive story about motion sickness, dedicated to children of divorce. In the format of a 10-minute visual novel, it lets the player join Lucy and Michelle on their mother-daughter road trip.
They will play as Lucy, a newly separated mother of a 9-year old, Michelle. They will hear Lucy’s thoughts, feel her doubts and anxieties and help her comfort her daughter by making occasional dialogue choices.
