I loved this game, but I kinda regret playing it! If you're suffering from depression or low mood, please avoid this game, otherwise- go for it!!!!

It's a minimalist, gritty and down to earth story, and it's handled spectacularly. Only short, but it'll stay with you. I loved the map connections, it works really well. There's a few things unexplained (like the treasure chests), but it leaves you open to interpretation and to fill the gaps with yourself.

 I actually applaud the use of rtp in this one, to other rmmv devs, it's going to feel more familiar and hit closer to home. Not overly keen on the blur, but I guess it's for atmosphere. It didn't match well with the pixel font you picked though. I also think the wife could do with making a little less wobbly.

Two small typos on the fourth map, the gal needs to say 'you're' and the bar owner should be 'a help wanted ad.' There were some places where the line breaks were a bit random. A little sweep over the dialogue might help (I have personal pet peeve about dialogue not really filling the width of the textbox correctly.) Could maybe do with looking into the timing of the piano music too, but these are just nit-picky things. There were no actual bugs I noticed, just left me with the cold realisation the my life was going to go the same way. Yay...
