Hi! Just an update on this post - turns out my PC was prioritizing my onboard graphics card (the intel one).  I had no idea I even had another one in this thing. Anyway, with that issue fixed the game runs just fine. I look forward to finally playing it!

Thank you, it works now :)

Hi there!

I think I messed with the relays too much and now I can't get through the door on The Playground even though it's open.

I figured I'd just reset the mission map data to fix it, but the reset screen is mostly off-screen so I can't click confirm.

I'm playing the 0.5.8 version

Okay you have no right to make me cry like that ;-;

Also, I'm curious - how many endings are there? I got the two that come from failing/winning the final boss, are there more?

This game is so sweet ;-;

And I'm always so grateful for representation in games, it makes me happy to see it happening more and more often!

This was so adorable! Great message, honestly :)

This game: basically, im very smol

Honestly, this was a lot of fun and very cute :) I feel like it would've been better with some background music and jump/move sounds (you can find plenty for free online). Also the platforming felt way too easy. But all in all, I had a good time :)

Alright, got the last one.

Caustic Soda ending - Finish your chores, go to Pedro's store and find some caustic soda (top right shelf). Then go back home.

Amazing game! The English translations were a bit off in certain parts (Especially the dialogues with Marko and Apolo), but the story came through just fine. That being said, I'm still missing one ending, so any help would be appreciated. If anyone is stuck, here are the ones I've found so far:

--------------------spoilers, obviously--------------------

"Bye" ending - finish your chores, then repeatedly click on the bed

Knife ending - finish your chores, then find a knife in your kitchen (near the stove)

Poison ending - Talk to Esther's niece (I'm sorry, I forget her name), finish your chores, go back to her, get the key and go to the basement. Talk to The Man, then find a poison vial in the bottom left boxes. Go back to your house and rest.

Thanks for getting back to me!

First off, that folder doesn't exist on my computer. Was I supposed to install the game in a particular location?/Do I need other software to run the game? (If so, I'm sorry for missing that info)

I'm not using a translation patch.

Here are my specs:

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 3192 Mhz, 4 mag, 4 logikai processzor
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Intel(R) HD Graphics 530
  • Storage: I have more than a Terabyte of free space, so this definetely isn't an issue

I don't know if it changes anything, but my language is set to Hungarian. I've had problems with games not running because they can't work with accents on letters/special characters appearing in folder names, but it isn't really common.

Edit: Tried changing my language to English (United States). Still doesn't work.

Super fun game! Very pretty as well. It feels like being a libarian is a very noble occupation in this universe

-spoilers-

I got Johann's ending first, then I kept playing around with the endings for a bit (I wish saving was a thing by the way). The child soldier ending came next, then the "my bones are a gift" ending.

At first, I thought there were only three possible outcomes, but I realized that had to do with how my brain categorizes information, and that these other endings might be someone else's first instinct. I feel like this game is an amazing test of personality and life experience (would love to put my friends through it once quarantine's over).

I think I gravitated towards Johann's ending due to some trouble in my own life, and I can totally relate to just wanting to rid yourself of a certain part of your body because of it. Therefore, my first impression of the other endings was that Laynie was repressing her trauma in them, but it turned out to not be the case.

I know they're meant to be kept secret to make the experience authentic, but as a completionist, I wish there was an ending list (maybe it could be accessed after you get your first ending).

Thank you for this amazing game! Best of luck on your secret narrative experiments!


(also i don't know what that person in the ending is wearing, but it creeped the shit out of me the first time I saw it. is that a beard? a mask? what's that black thing around their head?)

Haven't gotten all the endings yet, might go back and get them later. I really enjoyed this game! The style is right up my alley, with the horror being mostly just an aesthetic element while the game itself is pretty lighthearted. The characters are incredibly enjoyable, the artstyle is nice to look at, and the dialogue is hilarious. Would recommend!

---Spoiler warning---

For just 7 days, this game is really impressive! The graphics and mechanics work cleanly (except for the player being able to press the Accept button before it even appears). However, I found the jumpscares kind of cheap. I feel like the horror could've been more effective if used more subtly (the creaking window sound effects and slowly approaching dolls were pretty good at setting the tone on their own). And of course, there is nothing scarier than games asking for your location.

All in all, I enjoyed it!

Hello! I downloaded your game (the 64bit version), but it won't do anything. According to Windows, it's running (because I couldn't delete it afterwards), but nothing happens, no screen pops up. I've tried restarting my computer, re-downloading it, and disabling my firewall, but nothing seems to work. I'm using Windows 10. I hope you can help me :)

I haven't finished the game yet, but please reduce the button spam difficulty. I'm an osu player and I still can't mash this fast.

Hello! You have my permission :)

Just link back to my game page please (and let me know if you're done, I'd like to support your translation!)

I loved it! Poor owl friend needs a raise.

A wonderful game with a great sense of humor! The characters are all very charming, I can't wait to play the full release

Hi! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the Desaturated end is one of the minor ones.

I'm grateful for the offer, but I'll have to decline. The game is in a finished state and I don't intend to add anything in the foreseeable future. Thank you for understaning.

Kind regards,

Curse.

Yes, it was

Hello!

Sorry for responding so late. Do you have someplace we can get in contact (email)? I'll gladly authorize you to do it. I assume I need to send the game files?

Kind regards,

Curse.

If I had to sum up my reaction to this game, it would probably be keyboard smashing, which I will spare you from. This was great!! The characters are all interesting and unique, and the humor was delightful.

This is a great game! I'm usually not into romance games unironically, but this one blew me away. The worldbuilding is where this game shines, and the story makes great use of the things established to form unique bonds between the characters. I think the best point this game makes is that looks don't matter. The world felt weird and unsettling at first, but the more I got to know the residents of the city, the more I fell in love with it. Even though much of the story feels like wish fulfillment, I can't say it bothered me. It never took away from the characters' personalities, and the protagonist didn't have a "plot black hole effect" that so many visual novel protagonists tend to have. Everyone was very wholesome and it's a really good game for when you just want to wrap up in a blanket with a cup of tea and get the feels.

(also, I'm glad I turned on mature content! The scenes felt really sweet, and weren't as graphic as I expected them to be)

I don't like to judge a game by it's visuals, because the story is what primarily matters to me, but I have to say, the art was absolutely stunning. The character designs were all interesting and different, and the background art was amazing.

Yiestol's route is definetely my favourite, second is Nyargh's (and the message about prejudice is great with this one! also, fuzzy bee bois), and last is Brattan (his route was fun, but I always had a feeling of "okay, I guess??" going through it. I think his personality just isn't my type)

I recommend it 100%, great work!

Email is good for me. My address is [removed] . I just want to talk to you about your previous work and if I need to help you with anything.

Edit: I'm sorry, you haven't responded in 3 days, so I deleted my email information - I don't like it being public. If you don't need my help with your translation, you can do it, you have my permission. Just credit me, and link back to my itch and twitter page.

Hello! I'm back from vacation. Can I get in contact with you anywhere? My Twitter is @Curseonosphere

Hello! I'm currently on holiday and I don't have my computer nor a stable internet connection, but when I get home I'll contact you and we can discuss this.

I'll try to make this as spoiler-free as possible, but for those who want to avoid those, just skip this comment.

- Make Phoebe climb the right fence, and then succeed in Newt's minigame.

Thank you so much! I never thought my game would get so much attention. I really appreciate it!

Thank you for your kind words! I'll definetely keep trying my best!
