I like this game very much! I loved Bob #bestcharacterof2017,  sooo inspiring, Bob, I'm still inspired.

Very well constructed game. I had fun poking around the town and talking to everybody. Lots of personality. The story/message built up nice and subtly and hit its mark to finish. I found myself laughing at many of the same moments she was! Haha. So it was easy to get invested in the story. Learned a little something too. Good stuff!

I love this game I personally have autism and this hits close to home for me thank you for making such an amazing game  

Developer

Thank you for playing the game! I know Alexithymia is often a co-condition with Autism, I'm glad you could relate! :)

I quite like this game. I've never heard of Alexithymia before.  But even as an Aspie, I know what it feels like to not be "understood" by the world.  So, well done. :)

Thank you for playing, I'm glad you liked it! I have a daughter who is an Aspie. She likes it too and her experience inspired some of the tone. :)

Very well done and interesting! This kept my attention the whole way through and really nailed what it was going for.  This game will help you understand certain people better.

It's not my normal kind of game, but I found this one enjoyable and liked it to the end. I would recommend everyone try it. It was fun. 

It brings awareness to an obscure issue I had no clue about, and I learned something about myself!

Hello just1witness,
you've succeeded in not only informing me of a condition I didn't even know before, but also in making me feel a lot of empathy for people who suffer from it.
I loved how you gradually introduced the every day problems Alexithymia brings with it and how you explained it through the interactions with the characters and finally the queen.
I'm very glad I played your game. You have my vote.

Thanks!

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Truly. I loved your use of the available resources, and especially liked the twist on the classic, "hero vs. monster" motif.  Your dialogue, quest options, and the reactions of each character as events unfolded were very well implemented, and did an excellent job bringing attention to such a sadly misunderstood condition. The music was perfect, and honestly, this game hit me right in the feels. Especially the ending.  I think you did a wonderful job with this and I will certainly recommend it to anyone.  Well done! :D

Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you liked it :D

P.S. I am stoked to hear that it caused an emotional response, I was going for that and wasn't sure if I could actually pull it off. Thank you again.

Of course! And yes, it was great.  I'm a sucker for those things.

This is a super cute game. Meet a lovable cast of "monsters" who live together in a little town and try to stay away from those awful "heroes" who just go around killing monsters for no reason. Get to know and lend a hand to your neighbors, all of whom have distinct and interesting personalities, and learn about a rare condition that affects the way you feel emotions. 

I enjoyed this game a lot. It's cute, funny, relaxing and at times, even a little sad. Great job, just1witness!

Thank you so much for playing and reviewing my game!! It means a lot coming from you, since I've had the pleasure of seeing how creative and capable you are in game development!
