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
OH MY GOD!!!! Ok, I didn't cry, but I was close! I never knew games could be so special! I didn't make a youtube video but I red the words aloud to my brother. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS ADORABLE GAME! I love you!
Nice Game, I love it ;D
And I really want to get the second ending, but i can't leave Nil. I can't do this to her. She will get mad because of me :(((
What should I do ?????
You made me cry
Thats a rare thing games do
Hello! I loved your game, the story was adorable and quite hear wrenching at times as well as looking amazing and incredibly well drawn and scored! I made a let's play of it here~
the most cute amazing awesome AND CUTE game I've vever played space is juuuuust super cute PLEASE make a second one :') I want to see more pf those two thank u sooo much your game make me happy >W<
Innovative & even humorous use of RenPy's Back/Foward mechanics. I literally laughed out loud, when NIL locked me in one of the "moments" or mocked me for planning to reset. I enjoy watching the mesmerizing couple-twirling sequences as well.
Usually for RenPy games, when seeking alternate branches & endings, I would fast-forward & never go backwards during subsequent gameplay. Not so for 'Her Tears were My Light' -- I read through every screen (again) & sometimes went backwards to reread the previous screens, even during subsequent rounds.
Thanks for the memorable & poignant game experience !
I really loved this game!!!! Thank you so much for creating this!!! ; w ; Just so cuuuteee QwQ
I die a little on the inside whenever I reset, I don't want to make them sad :(
Thank you for creating such a beautiful game. I love yuri, yuri and only yuri. Space was adorable. Especially the scene where time and space lie down together and gaze at each other <3 As this was my first game by you, I can't wait to play other games! I hope you make more and I will support you all the time! And really hoping for 2017 to be a good year for queers XD
If they're all girls then its some cute ass lesbian shit sorry for my language but c'mon, its adorable and I love it, even if time is a guy [I don't know] It's still cute
okay this is the first game I played with itch and of Nami's and I loved it honestly.
running through all the endings, trying over and over again to make it all work out, was stressful but made me love the characters and really feel who Time was and what they wanted. Thanks so much for this, I cant wait to play your other games as well!!!!!
This game was completely amazing! If there was a sequal I totally would play it! Also this inspired me to make a fanfic on wattpad cause I really like the story line haha. I love every single one of your games, you're absolutely amazing and please continue to make games! If I could, I would donate to your patreon but sadly I don't have a lot of money to do so :(
Only took me Like Ten tyears but finally beat this (trippy) game. (all endings)
Man this game is epic Keep making good games
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.
TEARS AND GOOSE BUMPS! THANK YOU! *SNIFF SNIFF* I GOT ALL ENDINGS AND ALL MEMORIES! THANK YOU! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!
Thank you for this game! :)
it just doesn't seem to work for me
oh no! can you elaborate? i'll try to help.
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
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
If you`ll make a fan art of it, where you`ll post it? :3
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
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
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.
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.
