  • This had an interesting concept - a look into how our everyday mundane actions can cause a ripple effect to those around us - but closed with a deeply unsatisfying ending. Either the end was very sudden, or it goes on forever doing the same thing day in and day out and your fiance never comes home. 

  • Although there are multiple endings I never seemed to find one, maybe I just didn't play long enough, maybe I encountered a bug that prevented the ending from coming up, or possibly I just didn't trigger the right things to get an ending.  The backgrounds - all done in the style of a different artist - were great, as was the music.  It's a pity that almost all locations only had a single interactable object.  Choices popped up every now and then which presumably affected the ending when you got to it, such as helping a homeless man, calling the police upon seeing a shoplifter, etc.  Definitely could be a good game with more interactivity and perhaps guidance for the player as to what they need to do.

  • I really like the use pf paintings for backgrounds. It gives the game a very nice visual style. The music was minimalist but fit well.
