I fell in love with the art so I decided to purchase th game. It was really beautifully sad. I enjoyed a lot. Because I live far away from my home country, the ending made me think a lot about it.
I just wish I could read the texts little more slowly to be honest. Thanks for the game!
A lovely playthrough, thanks msBean! Wonderful to hear that it resonated with you.
Sorry that the text moved a bit too fast at times, definitely something I'll keep in mind from now on in my development.
Hey! Your game seemed interesting, so I decided to get it and make a video about it. Here's a link if anybody's interested. :)
