Amazing game! I love how it works.

I can't seem to get one of the endings, but I feel like I've tried everything!

Edit: nvm. I thought I'd gotten the Nil ending, but I actually hadn't.

Really good game! got all the endings, would recommend

how many memories are there?

13, counting endings i believe

Aah, I heard her out and... I don't want to reset and leave her, but I want to know what else could happen and if there's a better solution... ;^;

10/10 an incredible story

i cant belive i found this game that late, i love youre work , love ya all >w<

This game is a treasure, and I can't belive it took me so long to play it! The delightful  use of Ren'Py saves is super clever!

(+1)(-1)

thank you so much! glad you got around to it hehe <3

this is one of my all time favorite games, and i've played A LOT of games. so beautifully done.

Nami, did you give your characters here pointy elf-style ears to subtly emphasize their non-human nature?

i just think pointy ears are cute :) but yeah, that and their non-human skin tones haha

Hello! I'm a Japanese student. I've read a lot of Yuri novels and played a lot of Yuri games. this story is terrific and outstanding!! I want to recommend  this game to my friends.

It may be better if there is a Japanese version. But I enjoyed this game so much,thank you!!

I made it to the true beginning i love this game!!!

i just bawled my eyes out over literally all of Space and Time . This game is beautiful, thank you  

i love this game. what a unique experience. Absolutely Amazing!

I wish I could hide the text like on mobile, but I still love this game. It's super cute and short.

thanks! there's no onscreen button but if you press "h" the text will be hidden until you click or press h again :)

I made an itch.io account just to say this. I found your games like 20 minutes ago, and downloaded EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. I absolutely love them!  I was looking around for Momodora, and found your games as well. I started downloading the treat series and realized you made this game! I have this on my phone but I haven't played it yet. I can't wait to!


(+1)

I LOVE this game! Honestly, I was surprised to see it here, because I thought it was one of those games that somebody had made that wasn't really popular, but well liked by people who had played it. When I downloaded it on my phone, I loved it!

(+1)

ah yes, the polyamori space gays

quality.

I couldn't put down this cute game until I got the True Beginning. <3

So incredibly cute, I love the art and the story <3 

Such a clean presentation. Love the art style and story. The ability to change outcomes with the rewind button is really cool, especially with the characters acknowledging what happened.

Ok so I got the nil ending and true beggining but how do you get the space ending

(+1)

Short, sweet and so cute! Like Time I just kept thinking 'there's got to be a way to make it better!" and... well, without spoilers, it was worth getting all the endings!

finished the nil ending and now i dont wanna get any other ending since itd be like betraying nil.

(+1)

almost a full day of thinking and i started praying for there to be a ending where both nil and space are happy because if there wasnt then i would truly be betraying nil.

there is such an ending, i am fulfilled, all of the cute girls are happy, i have reached enlightenment.

There is, I'm not sure if there's another way to do this, but if you, AFTER getting the nil ending, go to "Memories" and go to the last page. Once you do this, select "Partially erase memories". This unlocks new dialogue. Pick all the bottom options until you're at scenes you haven't seen any version of, like Time and Space staring at each other lovingly, with Space's hands on Time's shoulders. At this point, just do what you want, leaning toward a good ending of course. I might be missing some things or mixing up some things so go ahead and experiment with details I haven't covered.

Hey Nami. I absolutely loved "Her Tears Were My Light" and how it combines girl romance with the story of the creation of the universe.

The artwork is really sweet and beautiful :3

I would love to see a second part about the ending of the universe, regarding the different ways a relationship can end.

Have a nice day :)

Got all endings and memories, this was truly an awesome story and game :3 

Just oh my god I playing through and got True Beginning after a little bit I NEED MORE PLEASE i understand its alot of work but if you have a chance to i hope you might make a second one! ^^

i want a "her tears were my light 2"! IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL PLEASE DO A SECONG ONE PLEASEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(+1)

this is sweet, lovely, interesting, and frightfully creative.  spectacular work, easily one of the best visual novels ever made!!!

(+1)

I played the space ending first and was like "oh how cute!" then i went wth nils ending aND MY HEART BROKE OMG

(+1)

I DON'T HAVE THE HEART TO RESTART IT TO SEE THE OTHER ENDING!! DAMN IT!!! LIKE, NIL WAS SO SAD...I COULDN'T STAND IT!!!  ToT

(+2)

I love the concept of this game, but kind of screwed myself over. I got the true ending in one go, and can't bring myself to restart everything to see the other endings. I think DDLC and it's Purist Mod left a mark on me with messing with save files and data, so I'm stuck with myself. ;__;

(+1)

I'm still playing DDLC, and I fell like I'll regret it 0.0

One of the best games i've ever played! +1 for everything in this game!
I'm the type who isn't ignoring, hurting any type of girl to girl or boy to boy romance! This was a really enjoyable game!

(+1)

SO FRIGGJN CUTE I CAN'T HANDLE ITTTTTTTTTTTTT 

Um, how to get all of the endings? So far I only got "Space Ending" and "True Ending" yet there are 3 endings!!!! Please help me ;-;

You have to listen to nil's side of the story. Then you have to like accept her, and stay. But after that that's it. Those are the 3 endings.

(+1)
