"Some days I wouldn't cast spells at all and the day was just as magical"

Well isn't that just the most wholesome thing I've heard this jam.

Undertale-like characters and art with a fair grain of Papers Please. Liked the mood, was surprisingly amused by all that, great work!

Developer

Thank you for the kind words and feedback! Those games were a huge inspiration for this project. Lucky for me, my partner can make some quality artwork to capture the vibe I was looking for.

Well done! The texts are not just random, but tells a whole story. Is it possible to help Nancy or the sleeping Simon? (I hope I remembered the names)

I encountered a problem in the main menu after I won, neither play nor exit worked. Also, the exit button at the sleeping guy restarted his... dialog? I took a while to realize I had to click on the text :)

Keep up the great work!

Thank you! We tried telling a story with each character's personality. Sleeping Simon was put in to show the player to exit the conversation rather than selling him something, he won't give a correct item bonus for anything you sell (basically waste a item). Nancy, you are able to help on the first encounter but it was her personality to become scared of the player and keep leaving the shop. 

We're not too sure what's causing the issue in the menu, it seems that when the menu is reloaded the buttons become inactive. Sorry about that.  

Thank you for the kind words and feedback :)!

I love how defined the characters are each one with their own thing. The art is also good to define them, specially on the skelletons, they really scared me the first time they showed up on screen. I was a bit confused by the exit button, I thinked it would close the game at the start, maybe another name would be better for that action.

I'd like also to give you a tip to get more people to play your game: specify the platform of the game so that people can download it and play it with the itch.io application.

Thank you for the feedback! Looking at it now it does seem a little confusing. We couldn't think of a simple word for leaving the conversation. 

Also, thank you for the tip! I'm pretty new to Itch.io so any tips are definitely appreciated.
