Well... This is interesting.

I'm someone that adored your first short game "Midnight Scenes" and I couldn't wait for your next game. You should have seen my excitement when I received the notification that you got a new game out. But... I have some problems with it. It's not bad my any means, but please, hear me out.

Let's first point out the good things: The presentation is top notch, far better than Midnight scenes. I cannot believe how much have you improved. The game looks gorgeous. The pixel art is done with such love and care, you can feel the passion, and, I must say. At the very beginning of the game, I truly felt comfortable and warm in the protagonist house.

The music is harmonious and melancholic at the same time. 

The sound effects are great.

I don't like puzzles much, but they were okay. I just sometimes found it a bit frustrating to hit on everything and seeing nothing happening. I don't like scratching my head to know what to do and it pull back the experience for me.

What for me ruined the experience was the story. I understand that this may come from a very special place to you (as you dedicate this game to your father). But I couldn't stand it. I never had any clue as to what was going on and when I finished the game I just felt disappointed. I didn't get any message out of this and the bird at the end just left me saying "why?". I know that there are games that tell stories without saying a word. But in here it seemed you have trouble conveying your message. It was too convoluted.

I'm truly sorry if my criticism offends you, I truly am and I do not intend to hurt anyone with this review, but I'm telling you how my experience was. I hope that your next game is great. Midnight scenes was truly wonderful, and this wasn't a bad experience AT ALL, it just was okay for me. You have a lot of people that is loving it for what I can see, so that's good. Many people enjoyed your game and I'm happy that other people could have a better experience than I did.

I will still follow you and wait for you next game, I'm truly excited.

Best wishes :)

Thank you for playing and for your honest feedback. And no offence at all, don't worry! :)

I sincerely believe that the important thing in any kind of art is what it means to the observer (or player in this case) and not so much what it means for the creator. The story of this game didn't say anything to you and that's totally fine! Just believe me when I say that everything is told exactly the way I wanted.

I hope our minds connect better on my next game! :D

Thank you for the kind reply! :D

I do really hope that our minds connect again with your next game. I'm truly excited about it.

Wish you the best! ;)
