I love this game. I made a drawing

omg thank you for the lovely fan art!! it's so wonderful! <3

hello, my name is Phillip, I was playing your game and I found it amazing and Saw that I'm not the only Brazilian who be playing your game, and I came to make a proposal, I want to help translate your game to Portuguese, what and gain from it?, nothing will only help you add another community to your game. 

any doubt this is my email philliphillips2 @gmail.com

-Made a Video.

I like those screenshots and noticed this game by a user's comment, and the title sounding interesting. While I like the graphics and written text's font, looks cool in levels and your dev-log/files mention translations too (btw: in case you'd be open for english-to-german translation)?

I only play browser-games while I could refer to each lines in lets-plays and manually translate them. Cute animation and conversation, would be an honor, if you'd be okay with looking a dev who could assist in translating those texts.

Being exciting for more games like this one :-)

How adorable! What's the purpose of collecting the seashells? I think I managed to get all of them.

you can give them to dynamene in town :) she'll give you something later for it, but it's mostly just for fun

Oh! I wasn't able to find her in town. She was the only character in the party who was new to me.


this game looks so cute, can u please make it for Mac?

if not that's ok

I second the mac accessibility! I want to throw money at this game /and/ play it! it looks so cute!

If you really want to play, I found a tutorial to play RPG maker games on Mac: https://www.visiontechcamps.com/blog/knowledgebase/installing-games-made-with-rp...


I love it!!! plis do more games like that!! <3


This game was so wholesome and I liked how it explored the sense of belonging. You did a great job with the short amount of time making likable characters.

não estou conseguindo baixar :(

This was so adorable! Great message, honestly :)


That was absolutely the most beautiful and caring game i've played so far.  


When i saw the title and the name i stay like: NotAtractingAndPerturbing.png

But later enter in the game, saw the images and gameplays and i said -" Why i didn't download it in this instant, is so stupid wait to see more gameplays and procrastinate"- and now am downloading the game, waiting to play this awesome game and have a good afternoon.


Lovely game! but how do you save, or does it autosave?

Deleted 37 days ago

After playing other games made with RPG maker, I found out how to save! You can just press "x" and you'll be able to save :) The game also autosave after the first day


It's very cute! I like it!


hope you like my gameplay of it ! =3

hello! first off, wonderful game - all your games are quite spectacular though. 

second - how many sea shells are there in the game exactly? i originally thought there were 31, but 2 more have been found, and i'd like an exact number (if possible).

thanks for your time and thank you for making such awesome games!


33 was the total if i remember right. thanks for playing!

Why no full screen? it was so frustrating to go through the game with only a tiny window its still a great story though(sequel to this game? I really want to know why Maia seemed like she belonged underwater or is she even human at all? i mean she did say it was cold and hard to breathe on the surface)


you can press f5 to enter fullscreen. controls are in the readme included with the game.

and yeah, maia is human haha, i didn't mean for that line to be taken literally--it's more of an anxiety thing!

This game is so cute and really good (sorry for my bad english)

The game is so nice. The pixel art is really cute and the music fits well. It's really heartwarming to play even if I felt bad for Maia, being underwater seems the best for her and I am happy to see that and to have encountered the beautiful people living here.

This game was so fun!! i recommend if you can making it available to IOS also.


I just finished playing the game and its adorable and sad at the end. I love the pixel art and background music. Im also super curious to find out Maias backstory and i really want to make fanart now! Thankyou for making my day Nami! :)


so cute


... first thing i did when i went uder water was got out... feel pretty good right now... 

im laughing lol


This is such a nice, soft, gentle game that didn't take too long to play. I really appreciate how straightforward and kind it is. The underwater maps are beautiful and I love the character designs as well. An all around lovely game, thank you for making it.

Once again phenomenal game Nami I wish i could support you on patreon and actually pay for these games cause you deserve it!!!!! Playing this game gave me something to do during these boring times XD I use too feel the same way i felt that living here on earth wasn't worth anything  but thats in the past.  Thank you for making this game!!!! Cant wait for the next Treat game. Will it be out by the end of this year or out sometime next year? But dont rush it a late game is always a better game!!! :)

Also i collected 32 shells is that all of them or are there more? srry if this is spoilers i dont know how to mark it as so.


will there be a mac version? I really love your games, I have all the clean ones (my parents wont let me get the others), but I can't play lonely wolf treat, or any of the windows only games. please, please make a mac version for these games.

If you want to, there's a tutoriel explaining how to play these games on a Mac: https://www.visiontechcamps.com/blog/knowledgebase/installing-games-made-with-rp...

My best friend had the same issue aha

I loved playing this game. It was super cute and fun while also being very emotional and sympathetic when dealing with this topic. I really enjoyed myself! 

it's a really cute and deep game, i loved it so much!

wow, this hit me right at home!! great pixel art, great music, and the writing!! to put me in tears after a 30 minute game is quite the accomplishment. well done!!

This is a beautiful game, Nami. It makes me want to cry because I can relate to Maia and how she doesn't expect everything. This game is perfect, I'm tickled!

Thank you...for creating this piece of art...i'm utterly in tears because the little maia is like me, and i ended up crying like a bebe...loved it

really enjoyed this, i love the sprites for the crabs and other creatures, very cute!

Art is AMAZING ! !  very cute to play ~ I love this tittle game. PS: Eudora  is soooooo beautiful, :PPPPPPP

This is a beautiful little game. I teared up a bit. I could honestly relate to Maia so the ending really got to me. Thank you for creating this!

So cute!  Thank you so much for making these amazing games free!  Also, the sardines were adorable XD

in french please T^T i like your games but i'm not good at english so i can't play it ^^'

(1 edit)

Coucou ! Je suis en train de travailler sur la traduction française :) Je dois encore la relire soigneusement et l'envoyer à Nami, mais ta patience sera récompensée ! Le guide du jeu, qui contient aussi des illustrations, des croquis et des secrets, etc. sera aussi traduit normalement ! :)

This game is so so so ADORABLE!!!
I really love it <3<3<3
Thank you for the masterpiece ^^
