A downloadable game
Unrequited is a two-page game about things we do for love, inspired by certain romantic comedies of the 90s and the song Distance by Christina Perri. It first appeared in the Indie Mixtape Vol. I (ed. Jonathan Walton).
Two players take on the roles of best friends. One of them, the Infatuated, is madly in love with someone else (the NPC Crush). The other player is the Friend, who has long been in love with the Infatuated. But thus far, and for most of the story, the Infatuated remains oblivious.
The game has 3 Acts and a Finale. In each Act, the Infatuated plans increasingly bold actions to gain the attention and affection of the Crush. The Friend must decide whether and how much to help with this pursuit—strengthening their friendship, but also making it more likely that the Infatuated will win over the Crush. During the Finale we find out who the Infatuated ends up with and what becomes of the friendship.
Co-written by Riis Griffen and C.W. Griffen.
