Hey, so I just recently played through Dear Substance of Kin and wanted to share some of my thoughts on it here. 

I really quite liked this game, the pixel art style used helps draw in the players attention while still maintaining a solid resolution, and not having things look overly pixelated. The limited use of colour along with a melancholic soundtrack in the background really drive home the atmosphere here, and helps to bring the world to life. The story is pretty vague, but I believe there’s enough context clues hidden throughout the game to help the player piece together some sort of plot-line, provided they take enough time to think about it. I enjoy games like this, where not everything is thrown in your face and the game isn't afraid to treat the player like an adult with a brain, rather than a child with ADHD. I also liked how the player is able to see the consequence of their choices later on, a lot games Ive seen on never take this step, they give the player choices but the results of said choices remain a mystery, or they’re given some bare-bones answer, so I was quite pleased to see this extra step taken here.

Overall, there isn't anything bad I can say about this experience, it’s all positive on my end, and I’m happy to report that I didn't run into a single bug throughout my playtime.

Excellent game, that’s well deserving of the praise it’s receiving, and I’m curious to see what comes next from the devs. If you’re interested, I made a let’s play of my time with the game linked above.  

Cheers and best wishes,
