Wow, the creepy vibes in this game was really well done! Good job, I really enjoyed it!

This is so cute! You really got me!! 😂


I was thinking about the theme the whole time, about how this was straight forward and then the ending--

This is so cute, I loved it! Good job, Sai!

Thank you so much! 

I've always loved the idea of speech bubble VNs so since it came out for Renpy 8, I've jumped to use it in my games!

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much!

I'm glad it works with the theme! I was a little afraid it wouldn't be... unreliable enough? So I'm glad it worked out well and that it was enjoyable!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed this game! ^^

That's alright, I'm very happy for the thought! ^^


Apparently it was on mine too because some friends said I said that joke a while back...

Thank you for playing! ^^

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed playing!

<3 Thanks for hosting this jam that helped me come up with the idea! ^^

Thank you very much!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it! ;v;

I'm sorry haha... ^^;

Thank you for playing!

Thank you so much for playing and recording your reactions! ^^ I enjoyed your video!

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! (:

Thank you so much for playing and showcasing!! 

Thank you so much Yuu!! I'm glad you enjoyed this game ^^ I was a little worried the theme might've been too heavy so I'm happy to hear it is still enjoyable

I will treasure your tears 💧💧 Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Ahhh thank you so much Ebi!! 😭I'm glad it was still impactful! I hoped that players could see what was happening with the clues I left in leading up.

And I'm so glad, I had a fun challenge designing and coloring them so I'm glad they're well received!!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoyed the game! ;u;" for better or worse, the title came to mind immediately upon finishing writing... My brain would not choose anything else haha

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the game! 😁

And yeah... the time limit really pushed me to crank out art at a faster pace haha

♥♥ thanks for playing usa 

Thank you! (:

Thank you! (:

Thank you!!

I had to get creative with showing different scenes thanks to the rules of the jam :') It forced my hand (to not draw additional art), but it was certainly a good challenge!

Thank you so much for playing! ^^ I've been playing around with textboxes a lot so the idea for a textbox being representative of a character was something I wanted to try!

sadkjflk;; THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS COMMENT CARROT!! /// you have no idea how fluttery reading this made me ahhh

I'm so glad you enjoyed it and that it was able to move you!! I certainly had a lot of fun coming up with the GUI and as much as I can to portray the characters! So I'm really glad they were noticeable!! 

Ahaha I'm also glad the second ending was intense enough. When I was finishing up programming, I wasn't sure how to make that one impactful enough since I only had one music track. But it looks like the extra 40 minutes spent finding a creepy enough font was worth it!!

Thank you so much again, Carrot! For both playing and leaving such a thoughtful comment!! 

Thank you very much for the comment!

And yeah, I see what you mean there. When I was designing, I did consider using the textbox itself as a displayable image so it wouldn't get boring in some scenes, but that was toing the rules of the jam. 

I might try to update it after the jam to make it a better effect!

Oh, thank you for the comment!

I definitely wanted to emulate the feeling of reading a manga so I'm glad it was an easy and quick read! I do hope to do a somewhat longer game set in the same world with a similar style later since this was the pilot to both the setting and the game mechanics 😂 I had to make sure I could actually keep up with making all the animations and comics. 

I'm glad you enjoyed the characters and game, thank you so much for playing!

Thank you for playing ^^ I'm glad you enjoyed it!

This is beautiful

Yup, I understand! Thank you for answering all my questions!

This was a lot of fun! I love how clean the art looks and the battle system ran really smoothly! It's such a happy and cute adventure, thanks for making this game!

Ending on a cliffhanger...!! 😩

This was a great read, I can't wait to see more of this world and it's magic (gods?)!

This demo was a lot of fun, I look forward to the full game!

Thank you! I'm glad the game left an impression! ^^

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

For example, assume the transformed textbox is now the BG of my scene.

It is clearly the GUI image for the textbox, but I've also doubled its purpose as an image/bg/sprite. Would that be allowed?

There are no plans to alter the BG throughout the game. At the end, I was planning to show another character (human)'s sprite, but I can just not include him if the mirror counts as a sprite/CG already.

I was brainstorming today and came up with a few other ideas and wanted to ask:

  • Can a GUI element be also repurposed as an image shown in the game? Ex: Color generated BG + showing the textbox for a scene.
  • There are no limits to custom GUI textboxes. If I make different textboxes throughout the game for the same character, would that go against the spirit of the jam?
