Perseids, or, All This Will Go On Forever

Made for Trans Gal Jam 2.

Four trans girlfriends go on a road trip to a dark sky park, to see the perseid meteor shower.  A 6.5k-long twine* story, with small branches but a single ending. There's very little conflict, drama, no-one dies. Just a good time.

Features a 5-song soundtrack also available here, with the in-game versions lovingly destroyed filtered as though they sound like they're playing through a blown speaker whilst you're driving through the countryside.

Shown at AdventureX 2018 and Melbourne Queer Games Festival.

Has a small sequel in SLASHER, Interrupted.

Content Information

This game contains mild swearing, and occasional light drug use (marijuana).

Whilst this game is in 2nd-person, and it will refer to you via a name you choose, the narrative will assume you are a trans woman.

That was really good. We didn't expect it to end there - caught us out of nowhere in the best way.

We like slice-of-life stories too, and part of why is the why you mentioned.

Wow, I know I'm late to the party, but this was great. I almost teared up at one point (talking about wishes). Brilliant work.

Such a cute game! It captures so much of what makes the magic of car trips what it is, and left a hopeful feeling in my heart.

love the writing, the characterization was ~~immaculate. I feel like some stories are easier to imagine and become invested in and your writing definitely has that quality <33 also i want a flirty friend group to go on a road trip with :')

is it possible to lose at rock paper sciccors?

Nope, the choices are for flavour

I really enjoyed this, it really made me pine for a fun trip with good friends. For some reason I didn't have any music though? I didnt realize there was meant to be any until the credits rolled :(

huh, weird. At least you enjoyed it even without music :) Can I ask what browser you were using?

I downloaded it and played via the itch.io client.

This is so sweet, and really captures the feeling of a summer road trip with friends - well, maybe with more cute flirting in it.

hehe thank you 💖 I guess the amount of flirting depends on which friends you go with!

To clarify - your game had more flirting in it!
