I love this-- I like walking sims I think this was just great.  I am left wondering whether this is parody or satire though-- i.e. are you purely taking the pretentious elements of walking sims to thier most extreme conlusion from a place of love for the genre or a place of pure criticism?  It felt like the latter, but who am I to say.  There seemed to be a little bit of your own sentiments and frustrations with creating games thrown in there, so maybe I'm wrong.

Excellent excellent work.  My only suggestion would be not to state what you were trying to say with the game so blatently on the game page-- I mean I read it after playing the game because I was curious but I liked going in blind.  I think it would lose some punch if I knew the (for lack of a better word) 'gimmick' before going in. 

Anyway-- Your game left me wondering, so it worked (maybe ironically? I don't know. I dont even know what irony is anymore).  Either way, I am inspired to something more meta with our next game.

This comment made my day. Thank You!

I’m so glad this little game of ours is receiving so many good feedback and constructive criticism. 

Anyway, about the game, we just wanted to make fun of walking sims for the sake of irony. I personally love walking sims and experimental games like this. 

But I  liked that you got a totallly different idea. We really wanted people to make their own meanings and conspirancy theories about it, so I guess there is no wrong answer (and there is no right answer either lol). 

Thanks again for the lovely comment! 

Larissa's comment said it all but I want to add that it really humbles me to have inspired someone. We wanted players to take whatever they could out of the game, any conclusions whatsoever about Imposition, Creativity, "Art", or even Narration or Contemplation or anything else the player might reflect about. Thank you for being living evidence that our game was a game worth making! <3

And from a design standpoint: We didn't define it as a satire or a parody beforehand, but we ended up making a bit of both, skewered more towards parody, since, as Larissa said, we absolutely adore Walking Sims - No joke, four of the six members have Dear Esther, Gone Home, Stanley Parable and even Myst as personal favourites - so that's saying something!

And lastly, thank you SO MUCH for the suggestion - now that I've gotten some time to update the page, you'll find a cutesy lil' spoiler warning right on the top. I've been wanting to make the page easier on the eyes, so I'll probably update it further eventually. Thank you for helping with that, and thank you for your amazing comment! (I... I'm not gonna lie, I teared up reading it the first time ;~; <3)
