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!

Episode 22: "I Can't Write" Jam


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.
