Very interesting game! I included it in a compilation video series of all of the Mystic Western Game Jam games, if you'd like to take a look :)

It's a beautiful game, I love how the constellations change every time. I really wish it was longer game, I want to know more about these characters.

Felt like a visual poem -- a love letter to friendship and laconic, small-town life. Easily my favorite I've played so far.

"easily my favourite submission so far"... I think the same here!

This is so subtle and beautiful, easily my favourite submission so far, visually, audio, writing, just stunning. I played through 3 times so far but I'm not sure I found the ending people seem to be talking about, I guess I'll have to hop back in, it feels very easy to get lost in its slow, rhythmic patterns of movement and dialogue. Just beautiful work man, I'm in awe.

I really liked this game! Beautiful art & music, I really love the palette & all the sound design details. Thanks!

This was really excellent. Actually found the oil derrick almost distractingly beautiful, to the point of not always following the dialogue or tone closely in favour of watching it. "That ending" is perfect in terms of visuals, exactly what I'd been hoping for as the dialogue trended that way. The composition in that final scene is particularly lovely.

Great to play it a couple times, at least one very surprise ending!

I really enjoyed this. It just felt nice, everything fit together perfectly and created a great vibe. The visuals are stunning and the music fits very well. Nice job.
