This game does summarize the artistic experience. Each ending was so cheeky and cute!! I actually loved the procrastination part most, it felt very meditative with the clouds. I also loved the audio (both words and music!). I hope Posey has more adventures soon!

Love the stomach mechanic even though it was really hard (I'm just not good at games lol)! I appreciate the gender sliders but I would've appreciated it as a graph or color spectrum instead!
Overall a fantastically cute little game, loved the sounds and the drawing and the writing and that I got infinite chances!!
This game is fun!! When I accidentally propelled my little slice off a cliff, I felt the same sadness one might feel when you drop your own slice of pizza on the floor at a party...The joy of reuniting my triangle child with its bretheren was very satisfying. Love the sound effects too! The ramps gave me almost a super monkey ball vibe? great work!
We love a gaggle of polyam GFs! I had a few issues where the text didn't really seem to make sense, or it started in a weird place without context which made the game hard to understand. Other than that, cute soundtrack, even cuter drawings and characters!
oh dear :( it looks like I did not a great job of raising dolores :( at least she looks really cool! I love this game and will definitely recommend it to friends who need to giggle and de-stress.
this was a really poignant little game. I love the mechanic. I got lost in the memories, sometimes. I love the way the background lights up. I wonder if I hit the stag at another time if I would've had another ending?
this game is fun but I almost didn't get to play it because I had the "baby" on the title screen one block right instead of aligned left. I kept clicking enter and double clicking, etc, but couldn't figure it out for the longest time XD my partner had to save me. that being said, the mechanic is fun and innovative! I love it!
My only critique is related to gameplay on Android. You have the option to "skip" dialogue on playthroughs past your first. Sometimes when I clicked "skip" it ZOOMED through the dialogue so fast I couldn't even stop it if I wanted to. There's also no option to go back in case I had entirely missed what I had skipped. I wish there was like, an undo button? But just for the skipping. And when it did pause to let me pick who to spend the day with, there wasn't an "off" function for the skipping. So it would zoom through the next even if I wanted to reread a section.
My favorite ending (surprisingly?) was the ending where I spent all my time with the Lady. I liked having a nonromantic, nonfamilial option to forge a new relationship. My next fave was the ending where I got to have TWO boyfriends. Polyamory representation in games, in media, in wherever is nonexistent. This made me feel seen, just by having this option. I think the "single minded" ending is what really broke my heart, but also taught me an important lesson. You can't just neglect your other friends when you're pursuing a love interest without serious repercussions. Friends as just as important as romantic partners.
The extra content, the multiple other stories, I think, were also really important to me understanding the characters. I honestly couldn't pick a favorite extra story. It almost feels as if they should be it a second novel, not just bonus content that people might feel is optional to read. I think in order of importance it's Mom comes for a visit, Dad and the Lady learn of the boy's relationship, the trio discuss their childhood, horror movie night, and private moment. It's not that private moment isn't juicy!! It's just not as integral to my understanding of the plot...The bonus content you can buy is also highly recommended - aka the art books, both SFW and NSFW.
Other bits I love:
How the "talking" sound bits are different for Tomai, Malik, and Burdoc.
The art! both characters and backgrounds!
Realistic family interactions with incredible depth!
The setting! I would love more stories in this world!
A very cute game! I wish I got a more in depth read of why I got my score. For example, for the computer programmer, is there a way to quickly get a perfect score by deleting everything EXCEPT what he explicitly said he likes? Does Mary only make a comment on what I did when I did something wrong? Does moving things to different rooms or rotating them really make a difference?
I don't experience asexuality, but have many friends and partners that do. I think this is a great game / think space for the reasons asexual folks might choose to have sex. It makes me wonder what a companion game about reasons to not have sex would look like. Thank you!
What a lovely game! I love the emphasis of "they". They who are lost, they who watch, they who laugh in hatred, and, finally, they who welcome the survivor into death. The descent of the survivor into madness chronicled through notes in a bottle is very interesting too.
Some comments -
- In the first scene, I find it odd that I can walk up the walls of the room.
- The text in the bottle - It says "we did not not listen". Unsure if this is a typo, because if it isn't, it changes the meaning in an interesting way.
- Love the way the text shakes and waves
- I love how the color palette changes with each day.
I'm not sure how to interpret the ending, of me getting into the raft. But it does make me think.
Thank you for this well made game!
this game is adorable and well made! I love playing as a friendly monster just trying to help out my boat friends! I also love the mechanic of trying to do so just with my big ol' dino head.
this is the dating simulator I've been looking for. I like that as I picked the nicer dialogue options I could feel myself actually "opening up" to my date. and I liked that I got to consensually lay an egg in him. that's true love right there.
I love the mechanic of walking into thoughts on the path, and the mechanic for the bus trip home. And I loved that it wasn't just a typical bitsy of little blob characters - there was actual art of the character as well. The music is wistful and charming. Thank you for telling this story.
This was cute! It reminded me of Pokemon Stadium's sushi mini game if it had been rendered instead for the Gameboy Color! I'm not really sure what determines "accuracy" though, or how to improve my accuracy.
This game was super fun and true to genre. I loved the feeling of being alone in a little valley surrounded by mountains. Can you win the game?? It's hard enough that I didn't even make it to winter.
this is so cute...it made me want to cry a little tear...I feel boosted up and ready to complete my day....if seen from the outside, are the things I do to get ready in the morning as cute as this? it must be. I need a new perspective...
I really love the style of this game! I grew up with Oregon Trail so this version of it is very welcome. Would love more features to make it a true alternate version - a destination you're trying to make it to, opportunities to barter, etc.
I liked this game, but the ending after defeating the final boss at each level felt a little anticlimactic because there was "dead space" at the end where I was flying and not doing anything.
thank you for this gift of possum. i would next like to dress up a raccoon from montreal. or perhaps another trash animal from another canadian city. and they can all be in a punk band together.
I love this little machine! I love even more reading everyone's comments and how hopeful they are that their gifts are received by someone who will appreciate them. I sent out this little bug...and received one (1) Sans Undertale. God Bless.
I love this little story. I think I identify with G more than the protagonist, only because my sweetheart is the one who takes work trips, not me. Sometimes it feels like I'm sending messages into a void, but having this perspective that my loved one is probably also reading my messages and treasuring them is helpful. The soundtrack might be my favorite part.
I would love an "update" or something where the protagonist gets to go home and leap into G's arms! Maybe navigating the trip home while receiving texts from G.
one last thing-
It might be a problem on my end, but when I went to watch the moon the night I received the rain email from my sweetheart, I was able to pan at first, but then things seem to have gotten stuck. I wasn't able to pan and I couldn't exit and had to refresh the page and start over.
look at my beautiful GF (insert one million crying emojis)!!!! her name is Gilberta and she's my best friend. we have a date at the ramen shop tomorrow and afterwards we're gonna watch Adventure Time and snuggle.
This is one of the better bitsy games I've played. I like that it was inspired by a short story. I think this could really help people get in the mindset of characters by playing through the plot like this. It makes me think about connecting youth (like high schoolers) with more classical literature. You should make more bitsy games that take you through short stories as the main protagonist! May I suggest The Lottery by Shirley Jackson?
