Laura and Raygan discuss Cibele by Nina Freeman and Star Maid Games. Autobiographical and naturalistic to a fault, Cibele tells the story of game designer Nina’s first romance (?) with a boy she meets in an online game. Cibele is one of the most personal and authentic stories we’ve ever seen in a video game and it’s appeared on several best of 2015 lists.
This game isn’t for everyone, and our reaction to the game was as complex as the emotions on display. Expect it to take 1 to 2 hours to complete. Cibele costs $8.99 and us available for Mac and PC on Steam and via the author’s website.
