At first, I thought the game is about the hikikomori phenomenon, but it turns out otherwise.

As someone who is (unwillingly) stuck inside a small room every day, the banal horror implied by the line "X is home, so I can't leave the room." cuts very close.

Ultimately, I'm glad for the game's protagonist that his X is not a cruel monster disguised as a self-serving human.

The game's message is good to bear in mind, for poverty-induced neglect &/or social isolation is very real indeed, even if most people are blissfully oblivious to it.


I know this comment is from 3 years ago, but I just wanted to say I'm in the same situation. I felt the same way when I read that line, too. But as you said, the protagonist is in ultimately a different and better situation.
