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. ;__;
thank you for playing my game! i'm glad you enjoyed it. however it's very sad for me to hear you're not a fan of "girl to girl romance" considering... that's what the whole game is about. i've gotten a lot of comments like this over the years from well-meaning people, but it always feels bad, because to me, when someone feels the need to include that, it implies that enjoying gay media is somehow shameful, and they want to distance themselves from it. i know you didn't mean any harm by it, i just wanted to express my feelings, especially since more people might listen and be able to go forward and not continue the same behavior. thanks again!
This was such a sweet game! I just feel like it was forcing the whole Nil thing, and it gave more time for the player to connect with Space instead. It adds more development and character to Space, and opts out to give Nil a sad backstory we're supposed to pity and fall in love with. I really did love this visual novel though, it had a great art style and story!
very cute!!! I really enjoyed getting to know the characters even though it was a short game. the art was great and I loved all the little design details, like Space crying stars and them having cut out symbols for their respective ideas. adorable little wlw game, great job!!
I enjoyed this visual novel so much! I really enjoyed the rewind feature a first of it's kind for visual novels to use it as, a mechanic I think! I also enjoyed the start overs but, with memories made along the way to enhance the story. I knew I was in for a treat anyways as, I've played your RPG game Lonely Wolf Treat on my main channel. Wish I had the money to buy a her tears were my light shirt i'd totally rock it! Keep doing what you do!
