It was interesting to see how you told the story in here, and how the minimalistic gameplay kind of represented the dramaturgy of it. All the ups, the downs, how the motifs of the characters became clearer over the time - it was a lovely experience. And I don't have to tell you how much I adore your pixel art skills. <3 Neverever stop to create such wonderful games! :) Happily I recommended your game in a little article as well as I uploaded a quick gameplay video. Keep it up! <3

Best wishes,


Stumbled upon this gem after LD. I'm very impressed how much atmosphere and actual story you've squeezed into such small game. It's like reading short sf story. You've got me totally inspired.

Following for more goodness and waiting for your shot at cyberpunk themes.
