Hi this is Miriam, producer of LongStory. I look a lot like Tina Fey, pictured below:
That’s also how I’ve been acting lately : ( because OMG making games is so much work. The update, (Other than the fact that I ate a lovely brisket sandwich while lying down tonight.) is that we’re busting our buttttzz off to get you the 2nd episode. I know it’s late, but I can say with a certain measure of confidence that the wait will be worth it.
Renee, who is the writer, and also the master of this tumblr may not like that I posted this, but I didn’t want to leave everyone in the dark.
Episode 2 is on it’s way. We’re pretty much done the story, the art is coming along, the music is amazing, the gender switcher + the boy art is done and the game will be ready to ship pretty darn soon. I am not going to say when because I think that is basically a curse.
Thank you so much for sticking with us, we can’t wait to ship episode 2.
We’ve been receiving loads of messages and e-mails asking where Episode 2 is, and we’ve been reading each and every one of them. Rest assured if you’ve sent one, we’ve seen it, and we’re working on getting it out to you as quick as possible! You guys are great, and thank you for your patience.
We’re still planning to release for fall 2014, and though we’re working hard, the game is not ready yet. We’ll be posting some concept art soon to give you an idea of what’s coming up.
Here are some of the things you can look forward to in Episode 2:
- Play as a boy avatar
- Customize your pronoun (he, she or they) along with your avatar
- Go on your first date with the character of your choice
- Dive deeper into Hanniferjane’s involvement in the mystery of Weasel Heights
Keep on eye on the tumblr for more updates, art and announcements on Episode 2, as well as when to expect episodes to come!
I'd just like to say that this game is so beautifully and artfully crafted, and if any of you guys think for one moment that it isn't worth the effort, I will personally hunt you down and beg for a chapter two. The choices... Abby or Marcel or Nora. It's great. please continue with it. :)

We do think it’s worth the effort mostly because we get lovely messages like this one, so thank you very much : )
I absolutely loved the first episode and was just wondering: Are you still interested in seeing fan-art for a possible boy avatar? Or other player avatars? If so, could I upload someway through a mobile device?
Asked by this-url-is-false
We’re always looking for fan art : ) If you want to send it you can email it to email@example.com
Let us know in the email if you want us to post it to the tumblr : )
Hi! I realise this is an early version of the game, but are you planning on adding the ability to save and/or skip text in later versions (I'm on a desktop if that matters)? I really enjoyed the first chapter but knowing I'd have to click through all the dialogue again has sapped the joy I would otherwise have felt at playing it again and seeing how different choices would play out. And the idea of not being able to save or skip seen dialogue in later chapters is quite offputting!

It’s certainly something that we’d like to add and we’ve already received a fair bit of feedback on the save system. I know that’s not a definitive answer, but it’s hard to say whether we’ll prioritize this feature yet!
I cannot thank you enough for making such an amazing queer-positive game! LongsStory is beautifully illustrated, wonderfully written, and completely engaging. I'm holding my breath for chapter two, for sure!
