How long have this project been going?
This particular project only took me a few days, but I've been "working" on assorted projects for months now, so I wanted to actually release something.

Thanks for featuring my game, Jupiter! Your narration was perfect. ^_^ I'm glad you liked it.

Very nicely written! I included it in my Finally Finish Something Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look. :)

Oh, wow, thanks h2n0! An expansion on this could be cool but I'm not sure exactly what I'd do for one. Someone suggested a "prequel" or sorts featuring Young Sam and all of the monsters, but I've also got a lot of other things I want to do besides just these two characters.

So, I guess my answer would be that an expansion is unlikely but not impossible. Sorry if that's disappointing!

Brilliant job, it was a nice experience to just have dialog between two people, nothing whizzing around on the screen to direct you attention away from the story. Would you consider expanding this?

Yeah, I know kinetic novels aren't really everyone's thing. I actually didn't like them either when I first got into visual novels, but I finally gave one a chance because it shifted from VN to KN format halfway through development (and I had been following it for a bit). Thanks for playing it anyway! c:

I liked the story, but I wish I wasn't left out. There isn't any interaction to allow me to navigate or guide the story... which is what makes interactive storytelling/gaming so unique over traditional media.

I like Chicken Little! I think it's hilarious. But there are a lot of people who don't like it, especially compared to other Disney movies. It doesn't have an original soundtrack like most other animated Disney films (which I don't think is a bad thing, but some people don't like pop music, I guess). And even though I love it, I can admit that the whole bit where the dad just suddenly supports his son in everything after one heartfelt moment is a little bit of a stretch.

But yeah, Fish Out Of Water was such a funny character. ^_^

What's wrong with chicken little? The fish with the bowl on its head is really funny!
