I enjoyed this a lot, but I'm also wondering, is there a way to ship all three of them?

I'd like to use this base for a character with a long skirt, but the animations are so fluid and lovely that my lack of knowledge on how to animate things is getting much more in the way than it would with the usual 4-frame sprite. Would it be possible to give us some sample clothes to help with animation? Alternately, would you be willing to accept payment to put a specific outfit onto this base?

I'm not sure if you know what visual novels are? They're a whole game genre that's basically illustrated choose-your-own adventures. Some people like this, some people don't. You would probably do best avoiding games tagged "Visual Novel" (and/or described by their creators as visual novels) in the future.

This was amazing??? I've played it before, and this second playthrough holds up. I ended up accidentally romancing Myka on my last life, but it felt really correct even though I hadn't been doing it on purpose. I think my first time I went for Jo? I still want to go for Esteban and Suzette eventually, too (Gemma is great but has killed me like, a lot).

I'm curious, is there a MC/Jo/Suzette end? I noticed those characters can hang out as a trio an awful lot, but I've never managed to thread the needle on it.

Thank you for making this. I'm not entirely sure I understand the ending or even if the player is meant to have a concrete understanding of what comes next - hell, I'm not even sure if some of the characters being angels is meant to be taken literally or is meant to be taken as something that the unknown character at the start who may or may not have edited any of this might have changed in order to get at the emotional truth of something that can't quite hit right when expressed in plain words - but I really want to thank you for talking about care and obligation in a nuanced and humane way.

People can definitely burn themselves out trying to help others, especially when everyone involved is falling apart on the outskirts of a society that doesn't really care about them, but the strain of thought where you should cut people off when their problems are too difficult to deal with and they'll probably be okay anyway because something something professional help... it's ignorant, and it's cruel, and the people who say these things are often very quick to change their tune when they're the ones who want something. There's no easy solution to the cycle of caretaking and burnout among people who have very little to give but almost definitely won't be saved by anyone except each other, and I came away from this story thinking that maybe the more sympathetic characters could've made a few choices differently, but the reasons things ended this way had a lot more to do with who and what the rest of society values than with anything these characters did.

I don't know if that's what you wanted people to take away from this, but as someone who's been all three of the angel characters at different times to different people, it rang very true.

I love these and am probably going to use them for several things in the future.

Are you comfortable saying if you used AI to create these backgrounds? A jam I'm thinking about entering disallows AI-created assets (I don't agree with this, but it's not my jam) and I'm wondering if using the backgrounds from this set would be within the rules.

There are some free-to-use assets on this site where it isn't obvious whether or not the artist used AI. Are participants responsible for making sure any asset they use wasn't created with AI, or is the rule more about what participants create or commission for themselves than about what they come across in the wild?
