It made me really sad but you did a really good job. The graphics are extremely cute, the music is good, the story has a lot of humor and really made me feel


We just discussed your game on our podcast! Come check us out!

Thank you SO MUCH for taking your time and for picking our game for reviewing. Had a smile throughout the Podcast. Things like this really makes me keep going at it. Cheers!





Right in the feels.

Nice job, I love the retro Earthbound-on-gameboy style and the bittersweet writing. I would love to play more things like this, I hope to see more of your work! Thanks for sharing.
