one of the best games i played so far
i recently replayed this game after finding it a few years ago and
all i can say is it hits different now
such a good game, thank you so much for sharing with us <3
The game is so cute and the gameplay is pretty creative. Manage to unlock all ending and memories except one. I just couldn't find it for some reason.
Hi, I'm Brazilian and I played :) I thought it was a perfect game, I'm a big fan of your games but the ending was to stay with A nada? I was left with nothing because I didn't want her to be alone and go after me again but I was in doubt ... Is this the only ending or several and can I prevent the space from being swallowed by nothing?> :( more games I wanted to know what the ideal endings would be like, but anyway I have to discover the endings I am very much a fan of you and I love your games :) Well, then I'll try a new ending
Im crying, I cant-
It's too heartwarming and beautiful. 1000/10
I LOVE it, also the whole idea of the universe metaphor is just so amazing
the most precious game i've ever played
I really love this game and how beautifully written and drawn it is! I would really love to cosplay as space! :3
i cried from playing this due to the fact i had just got broken up with after being with someone for over half a year....this game was a powerful experience and i really liked it
I really like this game! It's pretty unique and it's really sweet, the graphics and artwork are also really nice and I already got all the endings. Overall a 9.9/10, wish it was longer :]
The artwork is amazing. idk how many different endings are in this game but, I got the nill ending:) the amazing game though!
Edit: I just got the true beginning end:)
Edit2: I got the space end too
the art is really beautiful :) story and music is good too , im not sure how many endings there is or if i got the best ? i got Nil ending
made me smile :)
the true begining is AWESOME
This game was wonderful.
Hi so I'm currently dubbing one of your games (you gave permission about a year ago). I was curious if I could get permission to dub all of them? I really enjoy the content you put out!
(my heart will go on plays)
como lo puedo descargar en al version de español?
I love this game a lot.
the link to the spanish translation does not work...
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IITTTT!!!!!!, it was so good, the art, the storyline, EVERYTHING! 10/10
I just finished the game and I gotta say... AMAZING
Okay I'm being a bit extra, but it was pretty fun, and I really like how complicated yet easy to understand the story was, easily worth 5 stars.
Sidenote: I noticed that there are a lot of languages, and so I wanted to ask if I could help add Arabic to the list, I work as an English-Arabic translator and I would love to have a game like this on my resume.
Sidenote x2: I have a feeling you made this with renpy and if so... EVEN MORE AMAZING, I don't use renpy but I still know how easy to use yet simple it is, so how you managed to make the rewind feature is a bit baffling to me.
THIS GAME IS SO CUTE!! I love it so much, the story is amazing, and all of the endings were so lovely I feel like im going to cry ｡ﾟ( ﾟஇ‸இﾟ)ﾟ｡
Gay sappy romance. yes
Wow. This game....I don't think anything can top this. 100/100.
Resetting always leaves a hole in my heart but overall great game
I love what you did with saving and rewinding. it made me so sad to reset! lovely game overall and highly recomend
BEAUTIFUL. played it on phone
The fact that someone took the time to pick the idea of reality, moe-fied it, added themes of love and existencial dread, made it into a game and used the nature of visual novels as a way to convey the narrative is kind of crazy, to be honest. Much love to this small gem
I loved this. This was so cute >.<
5 stars 100%
Is there a Part 2 for this game
It was such a great game. Loved it alot!
