This was so interesting. I loved the atmosphere, the hand drawn walk cycles and penciling. The part at the train station when you couldn't see petal and then accidentaly started moving him towards the next star was such an awesome moment. I also really liked the couple of ending screens along with the beatiful nature montage and the chilling reveal of both the terrible act in game, and on the phone as well. If you would allow me I'd also leave here pieces of criticism as well. I don't like the title screen picture as much as the rest of the games visuals. While I feel like most of the game has a "mismatched artstyle" there was still a sense of clarity because items, characters and backgrounds were very easy to diferentiate, consistently throughout the entire game, but the title graphic shows the mains very differently. That could be a good thing, however I find the arstyle there much more static and boring and they look like completely different characters. I also find the composition and colors unappealing as well. I find the whole *flower over a grave and blood seeping from the shoes* imagery very on the nose and eyeroll worthy. I wouldn't nitpick so much but seeing this is the first thing people see when visiting this page and opening up the game as well, I think it leaves an unfavorable impression. And I would love for more people to find this game. A good picture is always the first thing that grabs my attention on itchio. I only downloaded this one, because the screenshots looked weird and interesting as hell. The second thing I didn't like is the way it was broken up into chapters. I like the idea itself and I may just be bad at reading between the lines, but I felt like the chapters weren't different at all in terms of story and visuals, and this made the experience feel a bit aimless for me. Sorry to rant so long, I'm trying my best to find good ways to critique art. I realise these criticisms might not be valid in your eyes, I just thought I'd leave some food for thought. Thank you for this fricking cool game, I don't think I will forget it in a while.

hi Doibats! thank you for your kind words and I love that you liked it :)

also!! thanks a lot for taking your time to critique the game. i'll keep them in mind when i make my next project for sure! i still think the title graphic fits and i love how it looks. i'll probably explain in an upcoming blog post about this game why it had to look this way ;)

i share your feelings with the chapters and will work differently with them in the next game for sure though!

Wow, thank you for the kind reply. Sorry you had to read through my wall of text : P. I was just having a bad day and needed to rant about something. I looked at your other projects too and they were awesome as well, I can't wait to see what you make next!

i really loved this game. this permeating sense that someone's watching you, uncomfort, dread. and yet hidden in the unspoken feelings between these two non-humans there's an unbreakable bond. i hope they get to hold hands once this is all over

thank you so much <33 and... i hope so too
