I can’t help but spend a good amount of my development time just kind of looking at the parts of the set that I’m proud of and coming up with the words from there based on how the place I just built makes me feel. big part of why I’m struggling with Reverie right now. I’m gonna strip a bunch of it back and release it soon tho, just need to figure out a few things

Hey there! Thank you for playing, it's definitely a game I'd recommend playing in small increments since it can get a bit intense if you play it all in one sitting. I'm glad the game spoke to you emotionally though, that means the world!
thank you so much, that means the world to me. I’ve actually had a lot of folks say that, honestly just taking the time out to leave a comment says it all :) I hope he’s proud wherever he is
hey there! Thank you so much for playing I’m glad the game meant something to you, and I appreciate the compliments!
To clarify, the game is being released episodically, I’m currently around a quarter of the way through Movement I: Reverie. There’s going to be two movements released after that as well, once they’re good and ready ;)
I’ll be pushing regular updates to the game so I would definitely recommend following my Twitter to keep up with development!
I’m so glad to hear you appreciated it, it absolutely fuels me to know that this game means something to so many kind folks :)
Hey there! Glad to see you played it. You can pick up the phone with Tab, not sure if that's one of the buttons you pressed, otherwise I'll look into it! I think I'm going to change around some of the input defaults and add custom bindings for folks with keyboard trouble in a near future update!
Thank you for your kind words, I am truly sorry for your loss.
Stories like yours are what inspired me to take the direction that I've taken with the game, and reassurance that I'm doing something right. It's responses and feelings like yours that keep the project going. Thank you so much.
hi! To my knowledge you shouldn’t overwrite your progress by updating, but I would recommend using the itch client to download updates since it’ll be able to update your game files directly without destroying the save
hey there! I’m Aidan, I made the drowning machine. Not sure if it qualifies as a jump scare, but there is a sudden loud noise regarding a train around midway through Movement IV, but to my knowledge that is the only thing in that ballpark :)
Howdy folks! Aidan here.
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to those who play The Drowning Machine. The game is very personal to me, and the ability to use such an incredible platform to get Charlie's message out there is an opportunity I could never have dreamed of.
I want to share the stories of all you lovely folks who have been through something similar. If you care to have your story heard, or even included in the full release of the game, I invite you to follow this link. The Drowning Machine is a vector to tell the stories of all who have experienced loss, and I would love to have the chance to share yours as well.
Thank you for playing, I'm glad you're still around :)
I'm glad the game meant something to you both. While ordinarily I try to keep things like this private, I know for certain that Charlie knew that this story would help someone out there. Honestly if this game is able to help even one person understand what it would be like to lose them, and show them that it's worth it to keep going, it'll be worth it for both of us. I appreciate any help spreading his message. I appreciated your respect of the source material in the video.
Everyone experiences trauma differently, everyone experiences grief differently.
The Drowning Machine is a chance at closure for both me and him, and I'm just glad that the message has gotten out.
Thank you both for playing
hey there! I’m glad you liked the game otherwise! I’m actually currently fully refactoring the game to run 1000x better, and the dialogue has been improved heavily already, so keep an eye out!
