I see Loved as more interactive art than game, but be careful if you decide to play it. It’s deep but it’s not beautiful, it’s terrifying and uncomfortable. It abuses, manipulates and punishes you depending on whether you obey or disobey.

Have you ever had friends that are like family to you? Not just in the sense that you know everything there is to know about them, that their parents consider you their own, that you know exactly where they hide their food stash, but because they’re always there. You can return from a five year long hiking stint in the Himalayas looking like a caveman and you’d still have a hell of a great time with them. Do you perhaps look up at the stars, thinking of them, wondering if they are staring at the same ink sky, the same twinkling stars? If they are thinking the same thoughts? You experienced life with these people - you got in trouble with your teachers with them, you got sent to the principal with them, you had your first crush on one of them and one of them most certainly broke your heart. You had your first drink with them in a tiny living room, vodka and sprite in a red cup. You sat on a roof with them and sang your favorite songs, reminisced about your favorite memories. You lied to them and with them, fought with them and by their side. But in the end, the fact remains that time flies, arrogantly when life is good and lazily when you can’t handle it anymore. Change is inevitable. But you know what? Time gave you these people. It can’t take them away.
What i understood from Loved (game)

Loved by Alexander Ocias is an amazing game, really

when one of my followers asked me what was the meaning of this, i couldnt stop myself from writing a huge paragraphe and, lets be honest, im pretty proud of this

The Voice you hear loves you.
But, the game is a representation of an abusive relationship (thats what i saw but maybe i misunderstood) and from the choices he gives you, you can either obey or disobey him.
Thats the part where it becomes interesting.

If you choose to be obedient to him until the far end, the world around you become clearer and more detailed and and you get the end where you decide to be faithful with him and he tells you that he loves you more than everything.

Of course, if you choose to disobey him, everything around you becomes more and more glitched and, at the end, even if the voice insulted you all along the game, he begs you to stay, where after his speech, you can either go away or stay with him.

From the two endings, i understood that the game confronts you to choices, to see how far you are ready to do for a loving person, for the sake of love (for exemple, are you ready to die in the barbs or do you trust him enough to not move even if theres a statue right there ?).
You can choose to be dominated and respect him or, fuck what he says and be free to do what you want.

There’s something funny though : you know when at the very end if you didn’t listen to him you are in a corridor with pixels everywhere, well, there’s somebody who said (i don’t know who anymore gomen i will search for him if you want to ?)
that was a representation of the player’s tears (because it blocked the view of the world, makes it more impossible to see where you’re going…) that proves that, even if you didn’t listen to the voice, you still cared for him.

And, at the obedient end, the voice asks you again if you’re a girl or a boy, then he respond by “no, you’re a man/woman”, i think it shows you that he’s proud of you that you trusted him and he considers you now as an adult ?

I think thats beautiful because, no matter which end you choose, no matter if you betrayed the voice or trusted him, he will loves you until the end.

(But i agree that’s pretty fucked up when he told you things like “no, you’re a boy/girl” when you first say your gender or when he says “he owns you” like if you were his propriety because that’s why i said it was a perfect example of an abusive relationship: there’s always one who act like they own you and decide what to do with your own life and thats REALLY fucked up)

my type is INFJ

“INFJs are private, preferring one-on-one friendships to crowds, and often quiet about their own feelings. They are often thoughtful, artistic, and wise, and prefer to operate behind the scenes.”
