For the amount of work in a short amount of time, and it pulled some emotional heartstrings like some of my favorite games like To The Moon, which the creator told me this was based upon, it gets 4.

Why it doesn't get a 5:

1. The English dialogue, while decent, is obviously not from a native speaker. A lot of saying "Owwww" after an insult, jab, or surprise which gets annoying, but is tantamount to immersion breaking. Especially since the game is set what seems to be a European country of some sort. No native English speaker says "Oww" repeatedly, only Asian English speakers do that (I'm Asian, so I know).

2. Some minor gameplay annoyances. Sometimes you can't get through a door to the next area if you are coming from the side and must face it head-on. The fetch quest seems artificially extended, especially those parts that simply have the escort character saying to check the notes or grunting, not advancing the story.

3. The plot was a bit predictable, however, even with that in mind, it was still very emotional and heartfelt. 

It gets a 4 as those things doesn't actually detract from the story focus. The game can be finished in under a couple hours, if not just one.

Thank you so much Gmx0 for taking the time to play my game. I really appreciate that you gave it a try. Yes I'm not a native English speaker but I know that's not an excuse to not improve in this language. I will improve as a developer overall and will do my best again next time. Again I'm glad and I'm happy that you gave it a rating of 4 considering that there are a lot of things to improve. I will keep on improving. Thank you and have a great day! ☕

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT (PLEASE READ)

Delete the old file if you guys already downloaded it. I checked the first download file yesterday and my anti-virus detected an infected file which is a music file that I got from my old laptop. So I made a decision to hide the download button because I can't change/edit it due to the ongoing contest. This may cause me disqualification to my entry but I rather be disqualified than put any harm to someone's computer. I hope you understand my decision. Anyway, if you still want to play the game, I made a new download link. Just visit the game page. Thank you...and whoever wins deserves it. ☕
