Raye falls hard for Julian Kilgarry. Online, he seems to be her perfect match. In the beginning, the spark between them charges strongly, giving Raye the impression that she and Julian hit it off. As Ella’s rage escalates, Julian starts to become a stranger to Raye. The element of openness and trust were thoroughly investigated with chat moments and real-life interaction. The issue of online-self and real-self was considered with the level of openness and trueness of a person. In this case, Julian Kilgarry has a distinctly friendly online-self and has a preoccupied and peer-influenced real-life-self, with regards to his Mr. Nice Guy persona. As a people pleaser, he wants to be perfect for everyone or at least for the majority of the people around him such as the circle he belongs to. His shift from being the victim to the heartbreak kid in ways that are unpredictable and unavoidable was wonderfully done.

The Julian Game is a youthfully careless and experimental story that presents questions regarding several issues that are present in the lives of teens – particularly the ones who belong to the Facebook generation.
