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)
