The Kindness of Strangers

Created with: AS3/FlashPunk & GameMaker (HTML5 port)

Play now: Play in browser

A small, autobiographical notgame featuring slideshows and narration, inspired by all the wonderful people my wife and I met while traveling in Taiwan. Takes only a few minutes to play through once, though a second play will offer a different experience. Made for my GameTrekking project.

This game was ported to HTML5 in 2022 by myself, Julius McWilliams, and Felix Brucker.

Some kind words:

Touching (Stephen “increpare” Lavelle, creator of English Country Tune and Puzzle Script).

Wonderful story, it’s almost surreal. Being born and raised in the more impoverish parts of the states, the only thing I’ve ever known from people is deception, greed, and hatred. (Nagneto, Newgrounds).

Since I live in Taiwan and have for seven years now, I was a little skeptical, but still curious what you’d have to say about the place. I think between this and your other Taiwan game, you pretty much nailed it on both counts. Great work. (Geof Aberhart, GameTrekking comments).

The amazing story in the background… I simply have no words for it. (evilmini, Newgrounds).

Ce que vous trouvez à la sortie est un cœur, et vous finirez The Kindness of Strangers heureux et grandis de cette expérience. Ce n’était pas un labyrinthe, c’était une agréable promenade. (Pierrec, L’Oujevipo).
