This game brims with so much promise! The framing story lends such depth to what's going on and made me feel so nostalgic.

Aesthetically this game shines. The player character is so cute, and I can't wait to learn more about them. The particle effects really brought this decaying world to life.

On a design level, this game is so fascinating. I loved that I discover the solution to a character's problem by exploring the environment. 

The sound design is really good. I could listen to that bird sing all day.

I hope to see this story get expanded at some point in the future! <3


Love the art. It's got a cool look.
