Such a touching story without getting too far into the nitty gritty and risking spoilers. I feel so bad for Space.
OMGGGGG THE TRUE ENDING IS CUTEEEEEEEEEE <3
i loved this game so much! literally the story line is so in-depth and honestly made me sad at times... super cute graphics, honestly don't think there's anything i couldn't like about this game
nil absolutely solos
AAAHHHHHHHHHHH not enough there is not enough of this game, oh my god this was better than any novel game I've ever played, AND THE KISS omg beautiful. Made me cry, so beautiful, 10,000,000,000,000/10 the music the art the characters, I loved every second of it, we need more, I wish i could give you all my money
Veramente bello. corto ma intenso credo che sia un gioco molto interattivo e storia molto bella anche perchè era anche in italiano. Ho bisogno di altri giochi cosi è meraviglioso lo adoro.
*loud sounds of heart melting*
i didnt even hope to find another game that can be so deep in intellectual aspect AND so emotional at the same time!
1000/10 made me cry a bit plus the mechanics are really amazing :DD
I really enjoyed this game.
I like this game,it is very emotional, cute and I like both Nil and Space)
Space and Nil. Clearly ancestors of Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate!
the plot twist of nil !!
This is a very, very emotional game. It has a fantastic blend of all feelings that I wanted. Cuteness, gayness, sadness, happiness, anger, etc. Now I want a part 2 of this game! Yes, right now! I hope my wish will be granted. Thanks NomnomNami! I'll check out all of your games and give you a decent donation amount right now :-)
that game made me feel something, not a lot of games did that, even undertale had less effect
One of my first games by NomnomNami, I simply love it and is my favorite as well, I love the dynamics, characters and gameplay, everything about it is simply amazing
aahhhj i love this gme so muchh
Everyone is sighing at the beautiful story, and I want to praise it from another angle. Although this game is very short, the programming skills are very elegant. Many Renpy games are just PPT.
At least in terms of multilingual support, this game is a very good example.
When you say PPT, do you mean PowerPoint Slideshow? Also, yes this is quite a beautiful story with admiration from every angle possible. Some of us want a part 2 of this beautiful game.
Ok so this actually a horror game and sometimes cute and pretty for me i liked space's design not only space but nil and time's style is soo adorable!
Sadly, Nil keeps appearring when i try to talk to space its just nil's takeover
This game was cute
I got the true ending!! I just had to unlock every memory. Also, I love both Nil and Space <3
This game is so lovely and sweet!!
i love this game! its so good but so sad, i really enjoyed playing it
OKAY NO BUT THIS GAME I SO COOL AND CUTE AND i played it a lot of time because you just can't get tired of this. the art style, story, just everything in this game is perfect. cheff kiss!
I already played this game on a mobile device, but wanted to support it here as well! The soundtrack on Bandcamp is "stellar" as well.
我到现在了还是这么喜欢玩这个游戏（I still love this game so much）
This was amazing and made well. I love this game!
This is adorable as heck. I'd really like to see more space stories that are cute and magical instead of serious and sci-fi.
Holy shit!!! 10/10
So incredibly cute! I definitely prefer this creation story over any other =)
I made a gameplay of your game on my channel.
I loved the game.
Thank you for creating this wonderful adventure, I completed it months ago in its android version. It was a great experience
