That was brilliant. Sometimes, you need to let in all the emotions you think have disappeared, lost their color, and be overtaken by them, in order to protect what matters most. Who cares what they think, if they are wrong? From the depths of darkness, ascend to the light.

I really liked the story telling in this game and how you would have to keep playing the story over and over again to get the full story. 

Oh!! Thank you so much for playing and for recording your playthrough!

Definitely a cool game, I really love the foreshadowing and how the player has to connect the dots and understand the situation person by person. Awesome!


Glad to hear you enjoyed it! :D

Really atmospheric and lovely! My favorite part of the character designs was the obscured, shadowy eyes of the characters in the rooms.

I liked the exploration of the girl's free will versus the pressure to perform as others expect, and the piece-by-piece reveal of the truth.


Aaaah!! Thank you so much!!!!

It's always nice to hear when the themes and motifs are coming through! Thank you!!! :D :D


This game kinda remind us of a masterpiece anime studio called Studio Ghibli

amazing game! Keep it up!

Oh I love Studio Ghibli! That's a huge compliment, thank you!!

And I watched your video and loved your playthrough! I didn't realize the glass breaking sfx was so loud on other people's computers, so I'll make sure to update the game with that sfx a little quieter!

Thank you so much for playing, and doing a LP! :D :D

Very interesting story! I like the fact that you have to play through it a few times to get the whole story. This game has a lot of potential and I can't wait to see what you come up with next :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)


Thank you!

And ooh, sure! I'll have to check it out! 

Thank you for looking at my game! :D
