If you’re of a certain age range then you’re probably familiar with AOL Instant Messenger, or AIM for short. For many gamers out there, AIM provided an intriguing means for conversation between total strangers who eventually became friends.
Emily is Away takes us back to those times where the player talks with another high school student – Emily. How exactly does instant messaging translate into gameplay? You could consider it a bit of an interactive story which plays out over these chatbot-esque conversations.
The game is looking to receive Steam Greenlight support and could still use more upvotes. You can play Emily is Away right now as it’s available as a completely free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
