A new game about a lighthouse keeper and your dog

Hello, bitsy folks!

Last year, I taught my students how to use Bitsy, while making a little prototype to make sure I'd could answer their questions. The game was about a lighthouse keeper and their dog, both isolated from the rest of the world. But, as often, I didn't finish it.

One year later, I'm trapped into my apartment due to a worldwide pandemic and I suddenly remember my game. After a few days of polish and playtests, it's now available! Enjoy it and feel free to tell me what you liked/disliked :-)

The story was delightful. Dreams as ellipses to pass time is a really good idea. Evoluate through this lighthouse felt great!

...But the shadow of death is almost omnipresent. Maybe a grief disclaimer would help? Anyway, good job!

This is a very relevent suggestion. Thank you!

This is a great game. I did notice one small typo/grammatical error - it says "The dish still smells Pupper's breakfast." in the first scene or two when checking the plate near the light.

Oh, I'm missing that one, sorry. Would you explain to me what is the error? My English is pretty broken sometimes ;_;

Oh sure. I would make it say that it "smells of" or "smells like" Pupper's breakfast.

The way it is worded now, it is as if the dish itself is smelling the breakfast (like the dish has a nose or something).

Ha ha, I got it! Thank you for taking the time to explain :) I'll fix this!
