One night, Natt is woken up by his friends Josh and Stan. Josh and Stan want Natt to step outside and have a drink. Natt has not seen or checked up on Josh and Stan for a while. Natt can be a friend and have a drink or he can go back to sleep. Either way, he is going to end up in a bad situation. Are Josh and Stan friends? Natt soon discovers that there are consequences for not keeping up with people.
Friends? is a choose you own adventure style horror game. You decide how Natt reacts to things and then you discover what happens as a result of Natt’s decisions. The majority of the decisions appear to lead to Natt dying a horrible and gruesome death. If you make the right choices, Natt can survive but it’s very difficult to get through the game without Natt taking on some damage, both physically and mentally.
A few typos aside, Friends? is well-written and the endings are gruesome and twisted enough to keep most horror game players happy. It doesn’t take long to discover that there are very real consequences to making the wrong decision. The game features multiple endings and multiple paths to those endings, making it a game that can replayed several times.
Play it and then check up on your friends. They would probably love to hear from you.
