That sound background ... love it.

Also, it's a very underrated kind of love. I really appreciated you talking of it.

The sound effects and prose style combine effectively to create a really distinctive atmosphere. "It's always evening"--I'm not entirely sure what everything signifies, but I'm completely drawn in.

Thanks for the kind words!

The flickering red light and the choice of ambiant sounds are pretty good. It gives this story a very urban feel. There's a lot of details that provided the ambiance, the neon light, the greasy mirror, the descriptions of the body... And despite the abundance of details, there are so many ambiguities that makes the world feel more real and wide.

And then I notice that you made the gender of the other person switch between plays. I got masculine the first two runs and feminine on the third. I'm a big fan of texts that change between plays, I've used it myself in an older work too.

Overall, great work!

Developer

Thanks for the nice words and detailed feedback!

Love the ambience. Just so you know, the game doesn't scroll and I can't reach many of the options. I'd love to delve deeper into it.

Developer

Sorry about that! There are never more than a one or two options so perhaps you haven't missed anything?
I've added the scroll bars anyway until I figure it out :)
