It involves meeting and getting to know your college biology lab partner Celina.It is also the hardest of the four as you have to balance charming Celina with getting a good grade on you Biology report.Name another game that can not only address themes like colonialism and abusive relationships, but gives you same-sex relationships (between your character and someone else or between other characters) and even a sex ed class where your professor mentions species and entities that are non-binary gender?(Sadly, no such characters appear in this game.)
