This game is so good, and much less scary and sexual than you would imagine from the description and the home screen content warnings. I played the Twine version of the game and loved the choose your own adventure feel and constant opportunities to tap out if it gets to be too much. 

The best way I can describe this game is that it’s emotionally titillating, in fear and desire (sexual or otherwise). It’s just enough to give you goosebumps, but nothing to keep you up at night terrified or horny. Oh, and it’s absolutely beautifully written with incredible sound design.

This game is absolutely stunning, first and foremost. You’re locked into a conversation with yourself for the first portion and then have a little help from an animal friend in the latter half. The conversation(s) you have flow very naturally and veer into territory that is very up my alley as an English major and failed poet.

There’s gotta be infinite ways for these conversations to go and many different endings or conclusions depending on your choices. I won’t spoil anything, but the only ending I’ve played thus far was rather ambiguous and I loved it; ending with an embrace of ambiguity and uncertainty is quintessentially me.

Arigatou, Ningen-san! is a mixture of relaxing, cute, and unsettling. You have to bend and warp your animal friends (at their request) to relax and win them over. I couldn't stop laughing with every new animal encounter. Like someone else already said, it's worth mentioning that you have to squish them for a little bit longer than you would expect. Very fun!
