Wow, that was so nice, I just got absorbed by the game and woke several minutes after. 
I'm usually not into narration and romance, but it's really poetic, well executed and original. You really got inspired by the theme   ❤️
The game could be difficult depending on one english level, but I'm not sure there is a fix for that  😅

This game is incredible! Unique idea that I haven't seen anywhere else, well executed. I would have liked the animations to be a touch quicker, there were times when I knew exactly what moves I had to make, but waiting for the words to swap took longer than I would have liked. Excellent game overall though, and I liked the ending.

One of the best games I've played in this jam so far.  It's such an original style of puzzle game and you came up with some good puzzles.  I think this could be fleshed out a bit more and be a great framework for some full visual novels.  Maybe come up with one or two other word-based puzzle types to break things up for something longer. 

One interesting idea could be to come up with sentences with multiple possible answers where you could hide easter eggs or branching paths.

A truly beautiful idea, makes me wonder if it's for someone in particular... if yes, she sounds lucky! Good job! <3

Great game, with a great name! A nice concept that was able to expand with new abilities smoothly to create some really nice "puzzles". The last one was really tricky, and I almost didn't figure it out, but I'm glad I did so I could see that funny ending video. I played in the browser and am happy to report that I didn't see any issues with videos loading. Great work!

Glad you pulled through :)

A very relaxing experience. Feels like something I would play on my phone to peacefully pass the time, Well done. My only critique is that if I use the tools too fast while the words are still falling from the last tool, they get out of sync and don't line up anymore.

Thanks for the bug report and the compliments! Should have probably disabled the tools until after the animation is done, haha.

This was really great, so peaceful and thoughtful :)

For some reason the video at the end didn't play properly on the web version, so I'm glad you had the walkthrough there for me to see what was meant to happen!

Yea we've been having issues with videos working on browser, which is a shame because we really liked the ending! Glad you found the walkthrough and enjoyed the game :)

Absolutely beautiful game, amazing job.

Very cute and adorable. My only desire would be a scrolling list of actions instead of a set amount. Sometimes I swapped the words around two too many times and had to restart.

Also an undo button for my fat fingering :)

You can really feel the charm as you play along.

For future people -- reload the web view a few times if it doesn't work the first time. At first I didn't have a font and thought it was part of the game! All I saw were a few boxes until I viewed their video.

It took 2 or 3 reloads to get it to work properly.

So sorry about the background videos not working on browser! Will try to fix after the jam, as that's the biggest problem we've been facing!  A scrolling list of actions and an undo button is on the to-do list (It was in the original planning phase but we didn't have enough time to polish those elements). Glad you liked the game!

Sliding words to-get-her was surprisingly satisfying! Nicely done!

WOW this is so nice! Such an interesting and lovely idea. I like the minimalistic style (I played in browser and there was just black background and I like it better tbh than the one I saw in the playthrough), music is nice and relaxing. I kinda suck at english so I had to watch at a playthrough sometimes but it's me problem. Excellent game! I felt really good while playing it.

Glad you liked our game! Sorry about the browser version, since Unity (our game engine) can't run video files locally in browser, it streams them from a server and that seems to result in it being a black screen 25% of the time. The backgrounds are fixed on the downloadable version since the video files are stored on the machine for that version. Happy to hear that this didn't make your experience with the game worse and that you even enjoyed it even more :). Thanks for all the kind words!

Wow! I haven't seen any games with this style. The tutorial really helped clarify some stuff for me.

THE BEST GAME I HAVE PLAYED IN THIS JAM (*so far*)

I love the concept, the puzzles are challenging, but fair. In most of them I got that sweat ahh moment when I figured out the solution. The story is a typical love story you can't go bad there. The clues in the ? tab were quite helpful, and the tools are complex, unique, but original and understandable. I like how you include a little tutorial level when introducing each one of them. And best part was the ending I was genuinely laughing at the for solid 5 minutes like a simple man, which should be your goal as a gamedev; to make games that are funny/interesting. Music was excellent and the theme was done well. The blurred gif images in the background gave each scene a unique look and feel. 

If you are going to work on it more (which you should), I will probably buy this game ngl. 

PLEASE I AM BEGING YOU MAKE MORE LEVELS. 

*also very cool name

Interesting concept, and the music works really well. Some feedback from your significant other would be nice to give it a more interactive feel (and maybe provide some clues?)
