Colby <3 I hope to see more from your team! The art looks so cozy and beautiful, and the effects were cool!

Firstly, congrats on winning the jam :3 I only just had the opportunity to check the game out because I set myself the rather insane target of playing at least some of every single one of the games in the jam xD And I was going by a mixture of random + karma order, so it took a while to get here, haha.

This is incredibly aesthetically pleasing :3 All of the art throughout is absolutely gorgeous. The overall story is a joy to read too. I got the good end on my first playthrough, so I'll have to come back when I get a chance to witness the other one! Oh, and the bits of animation here and there are beautiful too!

The only thing I found a little bit underwhelming was the sound design just because I feel like a few extra SFX here and there could really have added to the atmosphere of the game since the soundtrack was quite minimal. The most stand-out example I can think of is when the rain is pouring down, but there's no SFX for rain or a storm to accompany it. That's just me being super duper picky though (and I'm a total nerd when it comes to sound design and small details x3)

(Tim) A great supernatural story. I'd love to see Hugo Laurent crack some more supernatural cases!

Polished and well-written. I'd play more of this.

This is suuuper slick! The art, the effects, the movement, sound design, typography, it has quality written all over it! Great stuff, well done!

Thank you for playing, we're all glad you enjoyed our game!

I loved Hugo and Noah! I hope to see more of them in the future, it feels like they could have a lot of adventures together. :D I liked the creepy atmosphere you set up too, would definitely love to see what you can do with a full length game.
