The game is written in Twine, so it’s a game-like Choose Your Own Adventure story. Since I’m studying game development at the moment, I wanted to exercise my newfound coding confidence and stretch my design muscles, but I also wanted to make something that was in some way personal, even if it wasn’t about me exactly, I wanted it to be definitively mine. I wrote the game as part of the Dublin Twine & Jam.
Here’s a video of the game in action:
This is a video showing off some of the features of my twine game I Try My Best. Created for the 2013 Dublin Twine & Jam, it's about coaching an under confident dude through a party and trying to help him meet a nice girl.

Some points of note:
I also posted a little about the game and some of the things I learned over on No Robots:
A design doc to tease out the rest of the story with the priority on flirting with the girl on the couch.
