Wouldn’t necessarily say that there is a name for the art style apart from how you described it. Maybe if you branch away from ‘pixel art’ as a medium, you could find a similar realm in low poly art with a moody colour palette.
You can always look at similar artists who share similar brands and study how they draw! For respite, I was inspired by waneella’s pixel art but is highly detailed.
hopefully this helps. good luck!

The argument was about the main character’s rude and stressed behavior due to burnout and over-working. The MC denies that they’ve been having problems and avoids the confrontation from his roommates which ends in a fight. What they exactly fought about? It’s not really written into the game so you didn’t miss anything regarding that.
Thanks for playing and sharing your play through!
The game was so relaxing and enjoyable to play! I will always love the nostalgia of comfy asian homes and rainy days. This really made me tear up thinking about my family overseas.
I played it with a group of a friends and we all thought that it was so beautiful to experience. I’ll definitely be playing it again by myself!
Thank you for this experience!
I chose “my cute neighbour” in the end! I loved going through all the quotes, reviews, and, especially, the internal thoughts. Short game but really resonated with me.
Deconstructeam’s creations never seem to disappoint me when looking for a touching but bittersweet experience!
!!! Spoilers ahead!! . . . Yes! If you decided to stay, it’s suppose to close itself to represent taking a break. If you decided to go, the game would restart with the cut scene to represent repeating the cycle of stress and burnout.
A bit metaphorical and not the cleanest ending but since it was a school project I had to rush to get it down.
Thanks for asking!
When the sky falls, use it as a blanket.
In “Respite”, you play as a white collar worker who is overworked and experiencing fatigue and stress. As he re-explores his apartment and reminisces about past experiences, he’s reminded of the importance of family, friends, and respite. It's free to play and was done for a school project under a month!
