this was really lovely. the way you used colours & screen transitions was very cool. when playing through i was surprised (and a bit unhappy) that a choice i made had a big impact since i didn't know it would, but then as i played through the way the choice presented itself made sense (and i like that this is brought up in the ending too).

Is there a way to make the embed image for browser games use different images for PC and mobile? On PC, the image fits the viewport normally, but on mobile, the image is cut off so only a narrow horizontal portion of the middle is shown.
I tried using a horizontally long banner to see if the mobile version would automatically resize, but it still only showed a narrow portion of the middle.
hi, i'm glad you enjoyed the game!
originally i was planning on making another physical game this year, but the events i would have sold the game at have all been cancelled/postponed so i probably won't be making anything until at least next year.
hey, thank you for playing, and i'm really sorry that you have to deal with everything that's happening. this has honestly been a terrible year and i hope we'll all have a better one next year. i'm happy my game could make you smile a little though.
a little note... for mac users...
if you are playing on a mac, please make sure you have the game folder in a writeable directory... (do not just play it in your downloads folder...)
if you find you are... stuck...
you may want to try... right-clicking the app...
to show package contents...
and then go to... contents/resources/autorun...
this was very eerie & cool! love how you navigate the world through the text controls, and the logs slowly unveil what's happening. is there any way to make the window bigger though? it is very small on my screen and since the text is small too, it was a little hard to read.
i really enjoyed this game! i love the characters and the story (in case it's useful info, i got endings in this order: family > journey to the west > future > stasis > sacrifice), and the descriptions & images of food are all so delicious! it made me hungry just playing it. (i want jinhai to teach me cooking too! though i love all the characters jinhai is definitely my favourite...)
another thing i liked was how the game includes vietnamese, japanese and chinese cultural influences but keeps them distinct (and doesn't just mix them up together in some mysterious 'asian' flavour) and is respectful of each of them!
sorry i honestly don't have the spoons to get into a longer discussion about this in the comments of my game page. that was a thread specific to itch.io but you can find tons of people talking about the issues with 5-star rating systems in general if you look it up.
https://twitter.com/corpserevivers/status/1271543890433257473 here's a small thread about how ratings can affect more 'niche' creators. (for what it's worth, leaf from itchio chimes in on the thread about how ratings don't have much of an affect outside the top rated page and also mentions that he would like to revamp the rating/review system, but this is the system as it is now and when there are very few ratings already - which can easily be the case for games that aren't appealing to a larger audience - a lower rating can make it harder for these games to reach the people who might be looking for them, since they're already hard to find in the first place.)
just so you know, while it's cool you're going around reviewing inclusive games, giving non-5 star ratings on itch just makes it harder for small games to be stumbled upon (due to how the rating system works) and it actively makes things harder for the inclusive games you're reviewing.
this is usually an error that occurs because of where you have saved the app - the location seems to be read-only, so the game can't save. please try moving it to another location or checking the permissions of the specified file.
