Lore Distance Relationship

Played Lore Distance Relationship (

Follow user StaircaseHaven14 on a Neopets-esque site called Ruffians as she faces life’s challenges, RPs with her long-distance BFF (or more than BFF?) Bee, and encounters familial hardship, from age 8 to 18.

I went into this 2000s Internet visual novel game with absolutely no idea what was going to happen, and that’s what made it so magical and moving to me, so I can’t really review it. Or tag it appropriately on this blog. Or anything else.

Here’s what I can say:

  • it’s a text-based visual novel with player choices
  • it broke my heart
  • it mended my heart
  • my recently found love letters to my online role-playing « friend » Imane (comphet really did its thing, huh) really resonated with this
  • it’s cringe in the best possible way
  • it’s short.

Just play it. (It’s an HTML game so no compatibility limitations.)
