OK, I finally uploaded a video of my playthrough, it can be found here:


Nice art fitting the game and the story. This is a game with an interesting philosophy.

Your game is one of the mystery games in my last #metagamajam let's play video:


I kind of loved this game. I really enjoyed the premise.  Honestly, I'd play more if there was more.  Fritzy, as I named him, was so nice and I felt horrible when I made him kill stuff.

Great work!


This was a pretty fun little romp with a good meta theme. Nice work!

Here's the video from my stream: 


Cool game! Not my favourite game of yours but great visuals and metaness.  :)

Love your videos!


Nice visuals! And I enjoyed the story as well. :)


such a good game, well, probably the best in this jam


This was very cool! Love the idea. The art is really well done, and I love that it's a lot darker of a game than lets on at first. I actually went back and played it a second time, just to see.


Thanks ! It's so awesome to hear you actually played the game twice, it really means a great deal :) ! Cheers !


Great game! A recommendation for next time - an option to skip the slow typing text. For example, I could hit space while the text is being typed to instatly type it all out. That'd be cool feature and really the only downside I could find for this game, that the dialouge is pretty slow. Oh and the most minor thing ever, a small volume bar would be handy so the user doesn't have to change the browser volume in volume settings.

Story was great though, and I'm assuming you can get 2 different endings, which is really nice! Well done on graphics, music and meta as well.


Hey Marucs :) ! Thanks for the feedback ! I definitely agree with an option for speeding up the dialog (good lesson for next time). And yep, their are 2 endings :) !


Oh uau... that was dark and intense! I liked it very much!


Thanks Securas :) !

Great art style and pretty meta stuff! The audio work is also superb! 


Thanks :) ! That's so appreciated !


I really love so much about this - great entry! However, I also wish you'd made the text left-aligned. It's hurting my eyes trying to read it when the whole line keeps moving!


Thanks :) ! I get what you mean, I'll keep that in mind the next time I make a game with dialog, thanks a ton for the feedback !
