THIS ONE WAS SO FUN! The music was amazing and I loved the storyline. The character design was amazing as well!


Very impressive for being made in less than 72 hours!


A nice little story. A little disappointed that there didn't seem to be any meaningful choices having played through twice, but at least there is some illusion of choice if you play just once. The style and music is nice and works together.


hey! meaningful choices are cool, and there were some kind of planned, but games this small are very hard to do that kind of thing in - so we ended up not doing any due to it taking away from the intended experience! plus the point of the game is kind of that your choices don't matter, because no matter what you all have to work together :)) 


This is a thousand percent my aesthetic. Loved it.
