Dare I ask why you have a pentagram in the bottom left room?  Eh.  Nice game!  Our cat was a tortoiseshell, so she couldn't be mistaken for anything else.  Some years after she was put down, I got a toy with the same colouring, and left it on an armchair.  My mother and sister both mistook it for our old cat and were like "What?" when they saw it.  Gave me a right laugh, I can tell you.

I'm so used to your interactive fiction that I wasn't sure how to play this at first, but I'm glad I worked it out, because it was super cute.  My favourite was the last false cat, the shadow masquerading as a cat shape.  Your kitty probably sent its shadow to keep track of you.  Did you notice whether it had its shadow when you finally tracked it down?  Because cats are mystical like that.

Thank you!  I love Australian poetry, so I was glad to be able to share some of my favourites.

As long as that's a legitimate gofundme - and not someone trying to scam money out of the public - then I definitely support an indigenous charity.  All charities are worthy, but we just don't hear about these ones in the news, or see signs for them in stores.  It's all 'Red Cross' this and 'RSPCA' that.

Ha!  Love that it says "Time to ditch Skype".  My mother would agree; she's been having a devil of a time with it since buying a new computer.

I don't have Discord, though I'm seeing links to Discord discussions all over the place, especially in the jams.  Do I need a smartphone for it?  Gah!  I forgot.  I got my first smartphone recently, so I do actually have one.  I just haven't gotten used to working it yet.  I go on the Twine subreddit?

I shall forever remain in awe with what you created using Twine.  I'm still a newbie.  Part of the reason I'm addicted; the game is just mind-blowing.

Okay, yeah, that makes sense.  Thanks for clarifying!  :)

Okay, that was awesome.  Kind of frustrating until I worked out what I needed to do, but I made it all the way to the end, so I'm proud of myself.  Neat game!

Thank you.  I live in Brisbane, so I'm not in the bushfire zone, but I do have family in Victoria and the ACT who've been affected.  Just by the smoke and a bit of inconvenience, thank God; I don't know any of the people who've died or lost homes.  But this whole thing has been so heart-breaking for the rest of us who can only watch in horror.

I don't have a pay thing set up on here.  Would I still be able to create and submit a free game?  Or would I need to set up a payment system for that?

Also, I recently made a game for a different jam which is actually set after the bushfires, from the point-of-view of a victim.  Too sad for this jam, but if anyone wants to play it, it's called 'Magenta and Blood Red'.  The theme of the jame was 'dying is awarded', so... yeah.  It might be a bit much for some people to play, but it's bushfire-themed.

I am DEFINITELY no good at this game, but I love the concept.  Basically turning the usual game on its head.  I just wish I was better at getting the bombs and avoiding the hearts (a sentence I never thought I'd type in real life).

Currently there's only the one ending; I didn't know if I'd have time to fully flesh out another storyline before the end of the jam.  But I may do something more with it in the future.  Thanks for playing!

Gah!  I don't want to cause eye strain.  I changed the font colour in the first place because the white seemed too bright against the red, and thought the yellow would be less jarring.  Okay.  I'll fiddle around with it at some point.  Thanks for your feedback!

Well, the background colour is supposed to match the colour from the ribbon, so I'd prefer to change the font colour.  Do you have any suggestions?  Or would a different font help?

Super intriguing premise.  I've had the old age and 'looking up' death cards so far.  It looks like this game will have a lot of replay value.

I hoped the story would end that way, and it did!

I keep coming back and playing this game.  I can't help it.  It creeps me out every time and I've become addicted to it.  Send help.

I'm glad you've enjoyed it so much!  Yes, I think I noticed that spelling error - was it 'endening' or something like that? - after posting.  I'll proofread everything before I post the final version, which all 9 branches and who knows how many endings/achievements.  Promise!
