The perspective shift was really unique, felt like a really good way to get to know Charon as a character, by becoming them. I would really like to explore more of Charon's stories.

nice take on the passage, a light hearted discussion

I always appreciate a good game that explores the classism in history and lore. I also enjoyed the switch in perspective as you were listening to the stories. Good job!

Very well written and I like how you made it so some mythology is true, e.g. the ferryman existing, and how some human beliefs are actually untrue. A very enjoyable time, I only wish there would have been some visuals to accompany the story.

Liked the writing - short and succinct. Love how Charon is a cat-person just like Death from Discworld XD

That was charming and interesting! I liked how you switched perspective in the middle.
Well done!
Stay funky,

Really interesting. Loved the story and your take on the theme. Left me waiting for more!

That was very nice. The concept of a conversation between a soul entering hades and the ferryman was marvelous, and the dialogue lines were interesting and nicely presented.
