Hello! My friend and I run a Youtube channel where we interview game developers while trying the game out for ourselves. In each video, my friend plays the game while I conduct a casual interview with you about the game and it's development. We envision that the show can be a great way to get the word out about your game while sharing interesting tidbits about it's development. You can find our channel, and it's previous videos, here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFbeF6YT477YAB8VaarO9DA

Sound interesting? Fill out the google form here: https://forms.gle/ZpCuYZJBWhyEktxP7 and I'll be sure to get into contact.

Sweet demo & charm mechanic. It should be very interesting going back a lot to experiment with different charms. :) Also, congrats on passing the KS goal & unlocking two stretch goals already. I'm sure the narrator goal will be surpassed too. 


Thank you :-)

I put this cat on my wallpaper: 3

I absolutely adore this game! The art style is amazing!

What a lovely game! Only played long enough to decide to back the Kickstater, so as not to spoil any more of it! Looking forward to sitting down and playing the complete game when it's ready <3

Thank you! <3

Is there a way that this could work on  chromebook? I tried lots of things and either I had to pay, or I could just wait till its on chrome, or wait for it to load till THE DAY I DIE!!! I'm only 10 for the love of pete!!! *(clears throat embarressedly)* Back to the point. (Also, I know embaressedly isn't a word, I'm just too lazy to correct it.) Again, is there a way?

Hey, sorry for your frustrations. I don't have access to a chromebook, so I don't anticipate I'll be able to get a build working on chromebook.  However, there's a better chance that in the future we may bring the game to a cloud platform like Stadia or Luna, in which case it should work on just about any computer.

Thank you! :)

Gorgeous artwork!!


estara en español?

me gustaría, pero es mucho trabajo.  posiblemente en el futuro


It started a bit slow and I felt like it needed a run button. But as I got to the strange man in the bio suit and figured how the charms worked I was hooked! 

Beautiful art too!

Glad you stuck with it, thanks for playing!

The art style is gorgeous, and the story and game play is interesting. I hope the game gets more attention.

Thank you!

First of, The artwork on those characters were very special. Their expressions to the way that they interacted with other folks was really what made me get immersed into the story. 

So hats off to you and soon to be launch of this on kickstarter.

Here's my playthrough (several endings) for all to explore!

Glad you liked it.  Thanks for playing!

My pleasure.
