This is a really cool and interesting idea! I can't recall seeing another game that looks into what happens to shelved projects. I think you should flesh this out as a full title and go further, maybe giving the conversations between the game updates game play as well as text. I would however cut back some of the text after the branching narrative update, it bogged down the experience a little bit because the game is repetitive in nature. Other than that, nice entry!
