This game described anxiety really well with the narration. I really liked how you interact with your surroundings in various, especially the part where you're walking upside down and words flicker on the screen. This made me think a lot about myself afterwards but overall, amazing game. 

Thank you so much! Glad it could offer some self reflection =)


This was definitely a different experience, and I liked it a lot!


Thank You! Glad you enjoyed it!


This was very different to what i normally play. the narriation was amazing and i enjoyed the diferent game styles 


Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it.


Hey that was pretty dope, especially the clever changes in gameplay and design. Thanks for making it!

Thanks for taking the time to check out the game! Loved the overload of music at the end and your chats great throughout XD

This is what we need to strive for. Experiences that are tossed into the wind and time and heart in the same way that a short poem is written. Loved your game.

Thank  you so much! Glad you enjoyed it


Really interesting game. Anxiety is pretty well described through the dialogues and the scenes. It was pretty moving : it makes you think.

Thanks for taking the time to check it out! Glad you were able to connect with it.


i really like this game. its a neat and fun experience but it makes you think. would highly recommend 


Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing and taking the time to check it out😊


This really resonated with me. Loved the overall theme and discussion of mundane anxiety -- and how easy it is to put yourself down. Really made me think of how you can usually see the perspective of a friends issue clearly but you yourself can't follow your own advice. Really powerful.

Thanks for checking out the game! Glad to hear it resonated with you and glad you enjoyed it😊


Good god, more people need to see this game. It's really good at describing the things you tell yourself when you're down.

Ha ha thank you so much! Loved your play through and loved your thoughts at the end! Thanks for checking it out!
