Really great atmosphere! The story was fun and the text animation was awesome! Our team's original idea was to base our game off of your other one, Valorie, we liked it so much! Another great submission, thanks for sharing

Really gorgeous game aesthetically and tonally. Gameplay wasn't enthralling or exciting, but I found myself just wanting to hear more of what Ellie and Lori had to say than anything. Thank you for the experience.

This was a really beautiful game to play. There was maybe a bit too much dialogue (a lot of just "..." in there), and the game would've really benefited with having the text spell checked since there were a lot of typos. Great game, was a unique experience!

wow. such a beautiful and cool game i really like how it looks and plays although im not really sure how it fits the theme exactly but other than that good job.

The game was very relaxing, and I loved the atmosphere you created! Although the game could use some more gameplay in my opinion.

Magical art! And the really relaxing game. Too many dialogs maybe, I wanted to play more instead of reading. Music is also charming.

This was a great game, despite not having much actual gameplay. I honestly sped past the game bits to get back to the dialogue. Very heartfelt message that had me enthralled. The music was perfect for it and the typing sounds as well. Beautiful art too! I definitely would want to see something more like gameplay expounded on in a full release, but this is amazing for a game jam. Only thing that I think would be really great to change would be going through the dialogue and removing typos and fixing grammar mistakes. These aren't that big of a deal, but with the focus on the dialogue it was distracting at times. Otherwise this was a great experience! Thank you for submitting

A beautiful game, the ambient sound is on point, the gameplay isn't really there but a game with this concept would be wonderful. Love the art style aswell everything is so comforting.

Oh wow! I love the style, the sound, and the narrative. I think you did a truly amazing job! The only complaint I have is the controls for drawing the constellations. I think the nodes should be numbered, or the clickable node should light up, or you should be able to draw from any node to any node. But other than that I really like this one. It gave me Night in the Woods vibes and I love it!

Good entry, the music and ambience is really good ! Take care when making this type of game, there were a lot of written errors, it's important if you want the player to stick with the story.

Also giving the player the key to fast-forward dialogues is a must.

Good luck in your game dev life !

Very beautiful, and a really heartfelt message. The only thing I would suggest is make it so you can start clicking at any point in the constellation and then go around because i was a bit confused at first.

But well done, a really well made game!

A really profound message in the game - it's really deep. I really enjoyed the whole sequence. The art is really good and I love how you have made it simple to snap on to the constellation once you click somewhere around it. A bit of feedback would be first that some of the audio was clicking at the end - the keyboard strokes sfx. Second would be that the dialogue bubbles did not fit in the screen for Ellie during the lighthouse sequence. Other than that it's amazing! Well done

Amazing art, relaxing music. Little too much text for me, but I'm sure it works for others. Gameplay I found satisfying and relaxing. Great Game!

It's a nice game. Too much text for me it could have been great tog et a key to pass dialogue because we spend more time reading than playing. I understand that you want to show your storry but it's frustrating for person like me interested in gameplay more than storry. The gameplay is a bit strange it's hard to understand why you fail the constelation the order is too subtile i found. By the way your art style is wonderfull and you fiish a game GG.

It seemed for me my left arrow key was the only one that progressed the dialogue, in case anyone else is having trouble. This game was very beautifully written, I had a great experience playing it.
