“I’m Sorry, I Love You” spans the author’s childhood, utilizing both the author’s memory and the memory of familial oral tradition. ISIL is meant to be a compassionate portrait of the power literacy grants in developing resiliency, touching on adversity related to the neglect that results from being raised by parents with mental illness and substance abuse disorders. ISIL is not meant to critically approach these experiences but to offer an evocative, immersive, emotional perspective that invites others into the space of what this means. Technically, ISIL is a visual novel written within a visual novel engine that shares visual novel (VN) features like environments (background images), sprites (character images), and animations. It is an autobiographical work that utilizes limited interactivity.
