Absolutely a wonderful game. I'm currently studying computer science in university and the projects there were giving me psychological issues. Indeed, yesterday I was despondent about a project that I was simply too busy to start and was then urgently behind on. I was looking forward to playing Our Life after I was done but I simply could not get any work done. After two 4-hour blocks of playing, I was feeling much better and finished the project.
I love seeing how all the branches play out. It's like writing test cases for my programming class except actually fun. I love all the different ways the player's relationship with Cove can progress. I was initially apprehensive at the idea of basically being exclusive from day one, but it was very sweet to read, and I think it might be one of my favorite dynamics. The whole cast is very sweet as well. My childhood was nothing like this game, but I might dream of Sunset Bird in the future. It felt very warm and kind...just what I needed in the middle of all this messy 2020 business.
I only wish this game had more conflict...I know there are options to argue or disagree with Cove, but I must just be a sucker for tragedy because I wanted an option to break up with him or to grow distant from him, since it's something that, realistically, happens with people. Alas, also realistically, that would be a nightmare to code and I've been following development for a while, so I knew it wasn't going to happen :')
Anyway, beautiful game, beautiful soundtrack (it's always so calming and fitting!), beautiful art (I love how much detail was put into the color palettes for day, evening, and night backgrounds and even sprites...the evening is so beautiful. I could probably live in it). Love you guys <333
