The game was my tears. It happened to me.

AMAZING GAME! I LOOOOVED IT! WENT THROUGH EVERY ROUTE!

10/10!!!

It's such an adorable game and great story! It's very addicting and I love it so much. Me and my friends love to play this to get different depths. Love! xx

Awesome game. Loved how the story played with the usual save and reload VN mechanics.

This game is amazing loved the story behind it

great artwork loved the cute animations here is my playthrough  

I loved this game! All the various endings, the style, the characters... everything! I liked how you had to make determinate decisions to do something.

10/10 

This game is so cute! I love it, it's so creative and has some depth to it.

This was one of the cutest games I played. I'm not gonna lie, the artstyle was the thing that made me play this game and I wasn't dissappointed :> As you can see in my video, I had so much fun playing it (please don't mind my "voice acting") :3

I AM DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH THIS TAHNK YOU SO MUCH! do you plan to make more merch of this?? <3 <3

aaa thank you! yeah i hope that i can, i kind of make things on a whim so we'll see haha

HOLY MOLY That was so creatively original! This was not only cute, but also really pretty deep which I found super intriguing

oh wow thank you! unrelated but i recognized your art from your avatar, i actually played "i woke up next to you again" the other day, it was really pretty! thanks for playing my game aaaa <3

omg bles s you Nami thank you, please keep lighting the world up w ur games <3

So I had a blast playing, got the perfect ending Im guessing on the first try,  the artstyle and deep meaning behind it, really is amazing, had me thinking I would have never guessed what any of it meant, the colors are vibrant and the game itself story was was AMAZING I have to rate 5 out of 5, on amazingness, did an amazing job :D Here is a gameplay on it! hope you can enjoy as well as serve for a review!

i loved this game and wanted to replay it, but unfortunately, it remembers my last game and i can't seem to reset all my progress. is there a way to do this that I'm just missing or is it yet to be implemented? thanks for reading, love your work <3

you can reset it by clicking "restart" on the title screen, or go into options>memories>next page>erase memories. sorry that it was unclear!

I can't seem to find the language options; are they available on the Linux version?

sorry for the confusion, they're in the version 1.14-all zip! the 1.0 builds are from when i originally uploaded the game, so maybe i should take them off the download list...

Ahh, so I guess it was the 1.0 version that got downloaded through the Itch app. Thanks; I'll get the newer version.

This was so beautiful. The story was well crafted, the music was amazing, and the art was breathtaking. I hope to see more amazing games from you in the future.

This was such a cute and sweet visual novel. The rewind aspect was a really cool mechanic, and the art was absolutely beautiful. The music was so calming and melancholic too - I quite loved it. The plot was bittersweet in a sense, and to me the dialogue and characters were really the main backbone of this. Overall, great job on making it!

This is my new OTP now. I will protect it and love it.

I have no words for this game since it leave me speechless. This was definitely the bes graphical novel i've played so far. The story itself was amazing and so was the soundtrack.  Great game 5/5

Hey Peeps,

I found your gamer/project last night and did a bit of a video you. I loved it. Great idea and concept as well as both the storyline and graphics. Keep up the good work and good luck.

The story meant more to me than I might express.  Yet, to try:

Superficially, it's the introvert genius girlfriend who shares Tones On Tail on headphones with you at 3am under a blacklight and winds her legs in yours to redefine the word 'yearning'... versus the bubbly, sprightly dingbat who, when she's demure for a moment in a surprise thunderstorm, captivates and makes you feel like the center of the universe. 

Deeper, celestial meaning is pretty much indescribable.

Please get this on Steam. It's unique enough to really attract some attention and pocket change.  I'd like that for you. Healing hundreds of souls for a weekend night for thousands, 'at $2.99 and 90% off coupon drops', yeah, that's worth your trouble.

Kind love, OOO67VH (hal over9000)

The art is cute, but nothing happens when I click "Rewind" when I'm told to.

hmm, if you skip too far into the "hey you should rewind" loop you won't be able to get out, but you can hit reset on the menu and start from the beginning--the game will remember what you've seen and you'll be unstuck! sorry it gave you trouble, i just updated this so i hope i didn't actually break everything when i did that...

I'll try again! I did accidentally click "fast forward" and so I might have gotten too far into the loop.

I really loved this game. As always Nami is a god. :3 Ahn... someone has a tip to get the last third memorie before the endings? Thanks again by another precious game! The humanity should save it like a treasure for all the future.

Easy. Just let her explain everything.

Thx pal. I am gonna try it. I hope it works

if I may ask, what was this game made with?? Youve inspired me to start making visual novels like this!! u vu

thank you! i used ren'py, it's a free program :D good luck!!

(Edited 1 time)

one of the games that u know it"ll be great just through the art style :)

and i didnt even mention the soundtrack yet  ;)

I love the storyline and character design sooo much! Thank you for making this amazing games!!

Okay is it just me or do Space and Time resmeble Madoka Kaname and Homura Akemi? Not even just their designs, but the way they act when they're together. It's everything. Not sure if it was intentional but either way, this game was beautiful.

French version ?

someone was working on that but never finished :( translations depend on whoever comes forward wanting to translate things honestly.

you make great games :D

Finished the let's play! MA GAWD so sad (In my opinion) :3

So far really enjoyed it, just finished part one of a lets play on it! SUPER CUTE :3

When you finally get all the memories it's so satisfying! Thank you for making this game Nami :D
