This really hits home for me. You've done a really great job at presenting the story. Thank you for this game :)

Developer

it's definitely personal/relevant to me too, I'm sorry you can relate - thank you so much though!

A really beautiful game, really impressive.

Developer

thank you so much! <3

You made my eyes fill with tears ... "I always forget the time difference"

I can not say why, but my interpretation says that it's been well over a year and that probably the protagonist was remembering the call.

maybe i'm a little sad

... oh no that makes it even sadder D: I'm glad people are finding that there are multiple ways to read it though, I tried to make it quite open-ended and open to interpretation... thank you so much for your comment <3

Time zones amiright. All in all, very entertaining! Bitsy games are known for telling stories, and this has been the best one i've played.

Developer

thank you so much! I've played some amazing bitsy interactive fiction so that feels like really high praise :D

Developer

Thank you! I'm glad the graphics conveyed the story well, I'm kind of a noob at pixel art'ing :)

Developer

Thank you!

I very liked the concept of interacting with different elements. It's fresh... It's really fresh! No need to press E, no need to hold button. Simple, yet effective.


Story is a nice one, touching and lovely.


Graphics is simple, but objects and shapes are easily recognized. Love it.

Developer

Thank you so much! :D

Awww, this story. :*
And the art style is really neat... it's simple yet charming.
Congrats, solid entry!
Some sort of audio would be cool, maybe consider adding it later... because this game totally deserve it! :)

Developer

Thank you! I definitely do want to add some audio/music when I get the chance - just wanted to make sure I submitted before the deadline!
