Loved the art style and the gameplay, even though I was bad at it. I feel like it's intentionally difficult from the start, which I like. Good job!

This is a very cool game, with great mechanics, beautiful sounds and pretty visuals!

This is a very pretty game, slick and well designed! The intro sequence was clever and well made! The game mechanics is quite clever. Well done :)

Great visuals, sound effects, and gameplay! I love the abstract take. Very satisfying to play and quite challenging. Great job!

I really liked the idea of having two things connected and having them move around separately. The sound effect on transition was a nice touch, and the music was a good choice. One very small critique is that the hearts turning blue on death is a little bit visually confusing. Maybe have them explode into particles?

Great game overall. Challenging with great visuals. Loved the transitions between scenes!

I just started watching this series, so I can see how the symbolism arises, although neat that you managed to work backwards from a mechanic to match up to a TV show. Gameplay is tight and very challenging at some parts but managed the ending which is pretty sweet.  Great animations, polished feel and signature artwork as always, great job!

Great game overall, but when you start holding the heart, it snaps onto your cursor and I died many times because of that and it was kind of weird.

A lovely game! And a great topic for the valentine season... Makes me wish I could plug in a couple of mice to my computer and play with someone else... Wait... Maybe I can... I'll get back to this later :)

Great stuff as usual! Visuals are simple and effective, mechanics are solid, and those transition sound effects are super satisfying. Nice to have the story context too, and nice contrasting choice of music.
