an Absolutely beautifully stunning game, put me into tears! Nami you did spectacularly

I'm confused. I don't know how to get out of Nil's time reverse not thing whatever idk XD

if you're stuck in a loop you can start over from the beginning! the game will remember your progress.


Thank you for this game! :)

it just doesn't seem to work for me

oh no! can you elaborate? i'll try to help.

my computer says its some sort of virus

also sorry its been so long, school and all

ah, i can assure you it's not. if it's chrome stopping you from downloading it, there's a way to force allow it?

maybe i will try Firefox?

nami how did u learn to program

by doing it. btw please refrain from spamming, i read all the comments i get so i don't need the same thing five times haha

oh ya sorry I tryd to predict time andwere u were going to see the comment but I couldn't so I spamed but sorry��😅😅😅


BEST STORY OF ALL TIME AH. xD is it bad if i cried at one point? am i just too emotionally invested in these kinds of games? hehe, probably.. but this was such an amazing game! you did so so so so so so so gooood! keep it uuuup! *runs off to play your other games*

this was so good? i wouldn't say it was as aesthetically pleasing as the lonely wolf treat series because i love pixelated art buT, the plot was involving and there were so many possible endings and the plot was simple yet captivating and... well, i have no idea how you made such a simple idea be so fascinating. also, as always, the dialogues + character designs were flawless aaaa this was amazING

also, as an artist, i will be making art of all these things. cuz its JUST SO BEAUTIFUUUULLLLLLLLL

I have played this one and tunnel vision and i have to say i love everything about everything you do!the stories, the gameplay, AND THE ART! YOUR ART IS GOALSSSSSSS! ive been wanting to make a horror game for a while now. maybe we could collab sometime? once i can think of a good enough story that is TTnTT

(Edited 1 time)

great game :D the part of rewind...just...wow, how u do that? rewind and another things happen?(sorry for bad english)


thanks! it remembers when you've seen certain lines so jumps to new points in the script when you go back over it haha

HI Nami!


This game was amazing Nami. In fact, all of your games are incredible! I previously played Lonely Wolf Treat and I was immediately addicted to it. Keep up the good work!!! Also I'd love to see a part two to this, there's so many theories on what would happened when Nil and Time meet space again :-) You don't stumble upon a game as great as this one very often, but I'm glad I did!


I love this game so much. Would it be ok for me to make a cosplay of Space? I absolutely love the character.

absolutely!!! i'd love to see that ;o;

Great game :3

Just wanted to say that I FINALLY started to play this amazing game, and I absolutely love it! I hope I did Space's personality justice with my voice acting; can't wait to finish playing and to get all the endings! Thank you for making such a fantastic, beautiful piece of art! :D

Absolutely great game. I like the concept of how Space is able to change the endings. A good mechanism to be imposed and befitting of the character itself.

Ahhh the feels, that was so sweet and the art style so cute and i just want to hug them all.

The ending that i got, i wish i saw there relationship more after that but then making up your own what happens next is nice and how they lived all happy (in my mind). T_T

Time Love Space | Her Tears Were My Light - Part 1

I really love this game and the gameplay and the art style! Honestly, I love all of your games!
