That was kind of unsettling...

Well, sure, it's a pun...But I found myself wondering what sort of world the character lives in where they are cared for by a moth-er. Am I thinking about it too deeply?
Anyway, I am unsettled by moths...
I don't really know what that was about, but it made me think about stuff...I guess I'd say it made me think about intimacy. I'm not sure I reached any solid conclusions, but it was interesting. So, I'd say you did a good job. ;)
Weird, but interesting. I love the 80s aesthetic and the bits from old anime (I'd love to know the sources). It felt like it gave me a complete experience, even though I wasn't able to see everything. That's a pretty good accomplishment!
If you stay at the Inn, you lose your flower.
I'm not 100% sure of the justification for this (other than "only 300 words"). Maybe you put it in a vase and it wilts overnight. Or it's a metaphor for something. Up to you!
I can't really wrap my head around what's going on. I mean, it's certainly evocative, but kind of unsatisfying...After a while I want a sort of "Okay, you went through enough stuff, now you get to know what's going on"...
Neat. I'd like to see this idea expanded a bit further, outside the limitations of the Jam. Like, what if the player could actually defeat the Needleman with the pig feed? Come on, stupid player!
It leaves you with an odd feeling, as well as a bunch of questions like: What happened? Is it a metaphor for something? Should I feel good about "winning"?
It also reminds me of Andrew Plotkin's "Shade", just a little. Which is a compliment. ;)
Unsettling. But it really leaves you with a feeling of "WHAT could have led to this point???".
(At one point I figured it was all a sort of 'abstraction', like...the 'kitchen' and 'bedroom' are just areas in a beehive and the 'player' is actually a larva. Although...now I suspect that's not the case...)
Oh yes, this is delightful. You could easily expand it, yet at the same time the small number of options makes it easily to get a handle on...more might be overwhelming. Certainly, though, I think you could add more configurations. Like, what would a ship with minimal thrusters and support but 10 extra power be used for? :)
"itch.io refinery is a customizable toolset made for developers to distribute their unfinished games, build a real community and gain useful feedback." All right, that sounds good. "We think early access is broken"...Wow, what? Did you just insult all the great games I've bought and enjoyed on Steam Early Access? Is it really that important to position yourselves as jerks?
