That was really sweet and a good story, well done. I loved the line about toddlers only being toddlers but they're still toddlers. You said it much better though, haha.

Good work, Nice story

Developer

thanks!

Submitted

conceptually quite unique and relaxing, I like the effect of the swaying sakura on the title screen and falling leaves - most of the choices you make did feel a bit dichotomous in that there seems to be an obvious correct, selfless choice and no real incentive to choose otherwise - I couldn't do the mean choices route, I felt bad for the protag's dog and family T __ T there was also a small bug where the super market sound effects bled into the hub area

but, ultimately: nice atmosphere, very cute story

Developer

Yeah, thanks for pointing out the bug! we will fix it

We found it a bit difficult to strike a balance between what choices to present and where they would lead for the story. If we had more time we would have liked to include more nuance to the choices, so your point is well taken! 

Thanks for taking the time to play ! 

Submitted
