"Would the world be different if Mainstream Games was sexier?" is a question that crosses my mind way too often, as often as I try to search for cool horny games and end up very disappointed.

Thanks for digging through spicy 80's games, this was a super fun & interesting read!

Me ha gustado mucho la ambientación y poder conocerte mejor leyendo tus recuerdos desde un agujerito. Muchas gracias por compartirlo!

En mi concha he tirado al mar los recuerdos de los tres chicos que me perseguían y me tiraban piedras gritándome "marimacho" por el pueblo de mi madre cada semana cuando mi madre me dejaba con mis abuelos. Los niños de ese pueblo me tenían como un chiste que contaban en el colegio y una presa a la que perseguir cuando descubrían que había venido, no tengo ni idea de por qué se obcecaron tanto. La única vez que me acerqué para que me dejasen jugar con ellos, es como si estuvieran esperando que apareciese alguien a quien perseguir y humillar. No tuve ni un ápice de oportunidad. Lo tendría escrito en la cara, y por eso lo vieron tan claro? Nunca había tenido problemas así en mi pueblo.
Un verano vino un chico de Barcelona, y a él le hicieron lo mismo llamándole "foraster" y "pixapins". Nos hicimos amigos, conseguí tener a Gengar y a Machamp y todos los Pokemon que no había podido tener porque no tenía hermanos ni amigos con gameboy, pasé un verano muy guay. Hasta que llegaron las fiestas, que me pidió que bailase con él en las fiestas del pueblo. Mi madre se alegró mucho de que le dijera que sí, pero yo no había sentido nunca tantísima frustración. No sé cómo lo sabía, pero sabía que decirle que no hubiera transformado la dinámica que tenía con ese chico en la dinámica que tenía con los niños del pueblo. 
Mi madre lloró mucho de emoción cuando me puso el traje tradicional de las fiestas y me vió bailar con el chico ese. Creo que vió la luz al final del tunel, porque me dijo que se alegraba mucho de que estubiera madurando ya un poco y hubiera empezado a hacer cosas de chica normales.
Al dia siguiente fuí yo quien no quiso jugar a pokemon con el forastero, y le evité hasta que se volvió a Barcelona. No lo entendía muy bien entonces, pero creo que es el primer recuerdo que tengo en el que sentí verdadera traición.

Pero he tirado la concha al mar y creo que estoy mejor con eso ahora. Muchas gracias por esta experiencia!

Hahahah that's fair, reading is boring! 

Thanks!! ^w^)

Yeah, it's like a digital poem!

Day by day! Thank you so much for your kind words ❤

It makes me super happy to hear it left a mark !! Thank you so much for the kind words 🥺💖

I really want to do something with the idea in the future. I did not feel that I had processed enough of my experience with the topic at the time, so I was extra harsh on my writing because of it I think.
Anyway, thank you so much for your comments and your support, it means so much ❤

Thank you ❤❤❤

Thank you so much! ❤
You can read the story about what happened with our previous publisher in this article.

Thank you for playing it, i'm super happy to hear that it made you feel that way.  Wish you the best for post-surgery!

We weren't aware of this bug and since this game is a weekend project it's not likely that we'll sit down to fix it, so sorry for the inconvenience! Thanks for playing <3

Yes, after 7 bones it just becomes a melancholic chill fishing game. Thank you so much for playing!!! <3

Super cute! You don't usually see games using the spinning mouse wheel only, really nice!

I've been struggling with the same feelings since always too. I'd like to say that it gets easier as you keep trying, but it feels extremely painful every time still, getting older and more patient doesn't make it any less hard and fucked to be vulnerable- But I do feel like it's worth it to keep trying to understand the puzzle that being compassionate with your own self is, since the pain goes away the next day or week or month and what's left is a step forward. 

Thank you so much for your comment, keep going!

Thanks!! ❤❤❤

Thank you so much!!! ❤❤

Gracias Rocío!! <3<3

Esto es un PASOTE! Me flipa la idea y está super guay pulido, es un ejemplo de oro de lo que tendria que ser un juego de jam❤️

Really cool, super smart! 

Spooky! Nice experience :)

Really smart and really cool! Awesome!!!!! =^A^)

Nice! =^w^)

The mood on this is SO GOOD, it's overwhelming my senses. It took me longer than 10 minutes to finish, but just because I had to stop and savour the experience a bunch of times :___

The music is an original song by fingerspit, you can check more of her incredible work at her bandcamp or spotify <3

I loved reading your perspective on this, the way we humans view other creatures' suffering is a huge point that I wanted to reflect on with this game.
I find that there's a lot of human perspectives and emotions playing a big role in our decisionmaking when the subject is an animal's pain. There's so much that we instinctively get wrong!

Thank you so much for playing and for your comment❤︎

Thank you so much for playing it!!!<3

Thank you! 🧡

Thank you so much! 🧡

I agree, it's not exactly a subtle way of presenting each character's struggles and if I was rewriting it I'd definitely try to be subtler. My intent with Weightlifter was that it read as an interactive children's book, so I guess it doesn't bug me too much that it's quite on the nose.
Thank you so much for your comment, glad to hear you liked Compassion!❤︎

Thank you for your comment!❤︎

Glad to hear this helped in any way,  best wishes regarding what you're going through and thank you so much for your comment!❤︎

Loved your comment, I've never found a dying bird in such a state, but the mental image sure makes the metaphor a lot heavier. 

I know this is a thing since it happens on my laptop too, I've been giving it some thinking but I can't find a solution for this game that doesn't sacrifice being able to play the game with one hand only >< 
I'll for sure think of a solution for the next game. Thank you for your comment!

Glad to hear it made you feel that way, thank you for your comment!❤︎

Thank you!❤︎

I was not trying to put the thoughts into an animal, but putting the player into the scene by using the imagery of a fairly common situation.  But as it is, the game is too vague to feel that way.
I strongly don't believe we have the right to make decisions onto other beings based off our own perception of how things feel for us, and reflecting on this topic would make for another game.
Thank you for your comment, really appreciate it! ❤︎

Joke's on you, my dayjob is pseudo-intellectual claptrap too!
