This game is STUNNING! 

The art is so simple and yet can capture the emotions of the characters so well, not to mention the character design, the backgrounds, the story, the colors, everything just SCREAMS western. The colors especially fit so well into the western scheme, because I don't know about other people, but I immediately think of orange when it comes to the word "western," and the fact that the game was just full of that color (in variation of course) is such a clever decision that fits so well. In fact, it deserved its own sentence!

The story was wonderful and gave my heart many squeezes. I was on the edge of my seat multiple times throughout the game just wondering what was going to happen next! It was so charming that I had gotten addicted and sped through my lunch so that I could get back to playing. There wasn't a moment in the game where I felt the characters were OOC, their personalities were wonderfully written and stayed consistent. Not to mention that everyone has their little struggles and hardships, like our protag with being quiet and Joseph... well, I can't see many flaws with him, he's a perfect little boi and I love him very much

Last thing I'd like to mention is, although it would have been super easy to do, they didn't romanticize the LGBTQ+ in a sense, and gave a wonderful representation to the community, along with the hardships of being in it as well! It made me upset hearing Curly Wolf call our protagonist a tomboy, and the fact that the first time they've gotten respect from someone was from Joseph just pulled at my heartstrings. 

All in all, wonderful game. 1,000/10. I honestly would have expected to have to pay money for this game. You guys really poured your heart and soul into this, and it really shows. Congrats on such a brilliant game. I can't wait to see what else you've got in store.

Succinct short story with stylized gorgeous art and writing! The characters were definable and memorable, especially the two main characters. It's refreshing seeing queer representation in a visual novel crafted with care. Joseph and Robin balance the other out with their dynamic, making the journey enjoyable from beginning to eventual end. 10/10 would recommend :)
