Hey there! Wow that is a really humbling comment, thank you so much! I'm over the moon that you had fun with it.
Doing the changes in perception was because I felt it gave the player a bit more control over the protagonist. I wanted to play with the idea that the player-as-protagonist isn't just in charge of how the character acts, but also how they see the world. Basically, a more "co-author" approach. I'm glad you noticed it, and thanks for the feedback about wanting to see both results. That helps me think about how to do this kind of thing in the future.
Hope you have a great day and thank you so much for playing.
