Today, lone-wolf developer Kyle Seeley’s latest game, Emily is Away Too, launches on PC, Mac, and Linux. And to celebrate, Seeley has released the official launch trailer.

Look, if you know me, you know interactive story Emily is Away was one of my favorite games of 2015, and probably of all time for the way its pulls on the nostalgic strings of anyone who grew up in the AOL Instant Messenger days. That being said, Emily is Away Too is its sequel: and it basically is just more Emily is Away but with a few more features at play. In it, you create a screenname and choose your path through a branching narrative. For the sequel specifically, multiple endings have been added and obviously a whole new narrative,

In the game you will be messaging both Emily and Evelyn and determine the outcome of your senior year. Also new to the sequel is the ability to extend the story past the chat window with things like YouTube links, Facebook profiles, and file transfers. And most importantly, you can change your text color to a lime green with a black background. You know, so everyone can know that you’re coolio.

Emily is Away Too costs $4.99 USD. Below, you can check out the official launch trailer.

Now excuse me as I go get lost in depressing feelings of deep nostalgia.
