I love the interaction.


Sometimes you find yourself playing a game and you realise you wish everyone else should play it. Such an important message and I am amazed how well written this is. I've seen quite a few VN games in this jam that are out of this world and your game fit right in among them. To give some sort of balanced review I could say something like "it's a bit annoying that the window isn't smaller, because I had to zoom out and the text got a bit small" but that's such a small issue in contrast to the otherwise gorgeous game. Well done, very well done! <3


The game is fixed now, and we will update it as soon as the judging phase ends. In the new version the positioning of the elements is fixed and optimised to fit the theme. There are also additional character expressions and even a good chunk of new dialog in there.

Glad you could enjoy the game and thank you for your feedback!



I'm a huge fan of interactive narratives and this one offered some quality lines and an admirable way of tackling potentially tough questions. I liked it a lot, the drawings too. I didn't like how the game was web-based (?), because I had to scroll down all the time to find the rest of the story/choices. I think an engine like Ren'Py or something would have been cool in presenting it, since it does have visual novel vibes. :)

Well done!


Thank you for playing, im glad you enjoyed it! We considered renpy but since none of us had any experience with it we had to forgo it for the jame


Really nice drawing, like the story. Really good job !


This is a real testament to the power of interactive narrative. Emotionally very powerful. Spot on writing, art, and historical research. Bravo for taking on difficult subject matter and not watering it down. Really glad you entered.


Great story - love the drawings too!
