This game is really something special. I don’t often leave comments, but I have to on this one, just because I love it so much.
This game has had me writing more in the past few months than I’ve written in years. It’s helped me gain confidence in my ability to write my own original stories, instead of just writing fanfic (which is absolutely fine, but I’ve always wanted to write/publish original fiction - I’ve just never had the confidence or drive).
The author cites Stardew Valley and My Little Pony as inspiration for this game, and while I agree with it wholeheartedly, I also wanted to add another comparison I thought of while playing: the Atilier series of games, specifically Atilier Ayesha: Alchemist of Dusk. The stories have some similarities: Someone’s missing and you find out what happens to them and possibly rescue them over the course of a year, and you yourself take on the role of a potions-maker crafting things for your patients - much like the titular alchemists of the Atilier series does.
I’ve been playing for roughly a month and a half now and am almost at the end of spring. I can’t wait to see what the other seasons bring!
