(EN) What content (art, music, sound) is done by yourself and what's 3rd party?
The art is stock RPGMaker DLC, no music. I didn't have time to make any, so I decided not to include it.

I was a bit destabilized when I finished the game...
I restarted to play it a second time to discover what I maybe didn't see/understand the first time and...

Well, maybe it's still a bit short, but this is intense.
It reminds me the exercice of flash fiction: "Write a poignant story in very few words" (There's a lot of twitter account which like to post short story in 140/280 caractheres and there is also the famous story of Hemingway in six words). Your game is a bit like this : not long but enough to let the player think about the story and imagine what was before and what will be after.

So I think you made a good short game with juste little time!

I really appreciate this feedback. Thank you. I hope I can invest a lot of time into a game and make something really great one day!

I liked it!

At first I thought it deserved to be longer, but in the end it works well that way. You disclose just the right amount of info for us to wonder about the missing pieces. It's a nice little story
