Stories with this maturity level will not, by design, have any potentially objectionable content. An example of a type story with this rating would be a quiz on mathematics.


Basically an "escape the room" game except the only thing that'll stop you from going outside is yourself.

Not terribly written, but nauseatingly linear. Also, flat-out refusing a choice robs the reader of agency. 2/8

So this is pretty much Getting Out of Bed: the Game.

The writing is passable, but I'm not sure if this is all that accurate to the hikikomori phenomenon really. It didn't give the impression of being set in Japan, and it seems more like just your run of the mill crushing depression. (A reliance on the parents and an aversion to social interaction doesn't necessarily go hand in hand with living in filth or having it be a struggle just to crawl out of bed in the morning.)

Either way the 'best' ending felt a little too abrupt and simple, I doubt a person withdrawn into that kind of situation would just instantly go 'yeah, I guess I'll apply for a job' without some major soul searching and second guessing, and/or outside help.
