Who ever said you can't go back?
LongStory, a charming and LGBTQ+ friendly dating sim set at the weirdly lovable Weasel Heights Middle School lets you pick your pronouns as well as who, or even if, you would like to date any of your romanceable friends.
On your first day of school you discover that the previous owner of your locker has “mysteriously” disappeared. Do you want to figure out what happened or are you too busy being a social butterfly and trying to avoid your enemies…
LongStory gives you a chance to find true love as a middle school student (yes with all the awkwardness that entails) but we promise it will be so much better this time around!
"I rarely write reviews but I just had to for this game because it is so cute. I really enjoy being able to date whatever gender. I can't wait for new episode releases!"
"This is by far my favorite game on the App Store. I am so happy I was introduced to it when I was. It has an interesting plot, lovable and relatable characters, and the story just keeps getting better and better!!"

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I expected another plain ripoff of Episode, but I was wrong! The beginning lets you choose between he, she, and they pronouns, which I dont see too often (and is great for me!) They offer two character models, both of which have short hair and look rather androgynous (Bonus: theyre both POC) and you don't have to define what gender youre attracted to straight off the bat, which is great. The only reason I took off a star is that 1.99 per chapter seems a bit pricey, and I'm struggling trying to make ends meet so I havent bought any additional chapters yet. I also like how at the end of chapter one you're given the choice to say that you're not interested in crushes, which is great for any aromantic players! And to everyone complaining about this game pushing some kind of agenda: Thats a sidequest! Its optional to play and not attached to the main game! If you hate it so much you have the option to not play it!
Don't believe the negative reviews
Other reviews claiming this game is "too political" aren't taking into account the fact that a) this game is aimed at middle and high school-aged players, who need more media that engages with them on their level in an approachable way about current affairs so they can stay informed and involved and b) the creator of the game gave a statement before the mini-episode that automatically starts the game, saying they wanted to create a special mini-episode to help people (youth in particular) deal with a post-election America. That subject matter cannot be apolitical, by definition, and if urging people to care and be involved is preachy, then I don't know what to tell you.
Aside from that, the representation in this game is great. None of the characters feel like a token, and the developers really made a gender- and culturally-inclusive game. Representation matters, and it's important that young people see people like them in our media so they know that they matter.
So download the game. At least get past the protest-themed mini-episode and into the main game before writing it off. Gift it to a young person in your life. We need more inclusivity the game industry, and it's important we support the studios that are seeking to create change.
Recently Finished and in love with story
Where to begin? Well, I pretty much started this on Monday night. Pretty much played non-stop for four days and gotta say, BEST FOUR DAYS EVER! I haven’t experienced many games like this but the story for this was absolutely amazing. What I really want, and many fans probably agree with this, is a season two. I want to explore high school as the main character and I want to see how the friends all stay together. I’d love to see new characters too. I understand that it’s hard to produce games especially considering money, but in honesty this game holds a rather big message that not many people except maybe someone with fresh experience. See I’m currently seventeen. For me, the last day of middle is a couple years ago, but I still visit those experiences. Now I wasn’t as nosy but I did look into stuff otherwise ignored. Anyways....getting off what is a crazy explanation and just going to cut this into simplicity, beautiful game, love the art, the stories, the responses, a season would be good but just take your time. Heck, let us know if you need support. But we’ll be here. You the developers have our (the players) support. And I just want to say thank you for making this game.
