Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths

Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.

There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.

Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.

Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves. 

this game made me cry omfg








Jew by birth, lapsed Conservative.

When reading Paradise Lost in high school, I commented that a lot of the stuff was a little alien to me as a Jew.  My goyish teacher replied “But the fall of Satan is in your bible, too!”

No it isn’t. Satan isn’t evil in Judaism. Satan is G-d’s prosecutor, essentially. His purpose is to test the righteous. One of my central annoyances as a Jew with regards to non-Jews reading our theology as essentially Christianity without Jesus are little things like this. And the assumption we believe in the Christian versions of Heaven and Hell, or that we believe in Original Sin or any other Christian concepts that, frankly, were I not a Jew I would probably reject on their own merits. While I think Jews and Christians, and Muslims for that matter, ultimately believe in the same G-d, our understandings of said G-d and what is expected of us are wildly different. I wish we could accept them instead of, well, have you read a history book?

The Christian concept of Satan was so utterly confusing to me when I was younger. I was like, “So…he’s not human, but he has the free will to “rebel”? And he’s not G-d, but he’s acting outside of G-d’s plans? And he’s not another deity, even though he’s solely responsible for the creation of evil? And isn’t G-d technically still responsible for its creation, having created Satan knowing that Satan would rebel?”

Because, by the Jewish understanding, everything that exists was created by G-d. Including evil. I didn’t understand how another being could be responsible for it, if G-d was truly the creator of the universe.

And my Christian friends would get so frustrated with me.

Yeah. Yetzer HaTov and Yetzer HaRa (the good and evil impulse) made so much inherent sense to me that I didn’t see the NEED for some supernatural evil force to counter G-d. The concept feels very alien to me. That’s also why Original Sin confuses me so much. Are we or aren’t we responsible for our own actions?

The view of Satan presented in the book of Job is a very interesting one. To speak up and say ‘yeah, well prove it!’ to G-d, to question and then to test the loyal and faithful.

It presents this view of a Creator that doesn’t explicitly demand only blind belief. We’re Am Yisrael, the people who wrestle with G-d, and I think Satan, as the Tanakh presents him, is important to understanding that role.

The “wrestle with G-d” aspect of Judaism is important to me. That’s literally what “Israel” means. Abraham, the first Jewish man, argued with G-d over whether or not to spare Sodom or Gomorrah. That has always been an important story for me as a Jew. G-d does not want blind disciples who do not think or challenge things they don’t understand. G-d specifically chose Abraham and his willingness to argue even with G-d cannot have been accidental.

One of my favorite readings of the Binding of Isaac story is that, because Abraham did NOT argue with G-d to spare the life of his innocent son, G-d never spoke to him again. The last time G-d speaks to Abraham in the Bible is then. Afterwards, Abraham’s covenant with G-d remained, but his personal relationship was over. He failed his final test. I’ve always found that reading fascinating and much prefer it to the blind faith reading.

Yes, yes, yes! There’s so much in the Akedah (Binding of Isaac, for goyische followers) to pay attention to, but that, that’s a big picture thing that stuck with me. Whenever people (usually goyim, of course) bring up that story, that’s one of the first things I want to hit them in the face with. It was WRONG of Abe to just accept that task!

Also, am I the only one who wants to watch a Hebrew dub of The Hunger Games just to see if Katniss uses the word ‘hineini’ (‘here I am’, both what Abraham said when the angel called him and what Isaac said when Abraham called him), in order to really make the connection between her action in volunteering and the sacrifice of Isaac? If I were translating, that might have been one of the things I’d have done.
