There's so much to love about this game! Breathtaking artwork, calming music, and such an in-depth examination of the theme and how a solarpunk society would function. It made for an outstanding experience.

I did have some difficulty interacting with Rabea and a few of the items, since you need to be walking toward them to select them, but otherwise the controls felt smooth and intuitive. I would absolutely play a full game in this setting - very well done!

I want to brew myself a tasty warm drink, get in to some comfy clothes, wrap myself in a blanket and play this game.

Lovely aesthetic, nice story-based gameplay and very nice character development and world-building.

Would play again.

Okay so I've played and rated almost every game in the game at this point and this is by far my favourite. I really hope you continue it because the mood is amazing, I love the characters so far, and I NEED to save that sweet piggy.

From the title screen, I could already feel the atmosphere that this was no ordinary thing.

You made this beautiful art in 9 days? That's a superhuman amount of work.

I felt that there are really great people in the world.

It's a great game, and I enjoyed playing it!

Best Art of the Jam by far, but lacking in the mechanics or maybe gameplay elements. With just a little more to do, it could have been one of the best games of the jam. Congrats!

Love love love! This brings back happy memories of playing point and click adventures like Monkey Island!

Which brings me to the only complaint I have - keyboard controls! Not sure they were needed - mouse alone would have been fine I feel.

Still, love the art style, love the music, the sound effect, the dialog, etc. This is a strong contender for best game I feel!

Really enjoyed your game! Very impressive amount of artwork produced in only 9 days, and fit the theme perfectly. The little bits of witty humor were my favorite parts.

Wow the art is amazing, I liked the entire setting and feel of the game.

Feels like a solid base to continue on.
