Game of the Day: Violet by Jeremy Freese

Today’s GOTD was submitted by reader Tobias. Violet, winner of IF Comp 2008, is a story about a relationship; it’s funny and a little bit heartbreaking. It’s also the only game I’ve ever played that has a “heteronormativity off” command, which is just one of the many delightful things about it.

If you have made or played an IF or indie game you would like to see featured on The Border House, send it to us at editors (at) borderhouseblog (dot) com. You can see our past featured games at this tag.

    I wrote a short piece of interactive fiction about the beginnings of a relationship earlier this week. It’s not worthy of a feature, it’s certainly not at the same level as Violet, but people who intentionally visit this page might like to give it a run through or two.

    Violet was outstanding. A very nice diversion from my work last night.
