I love this! It's short, but the message is SO strong!

this is awesome:)

OMG, I was just making a game  with "human sounds" for the special sound effects. And randomly see (hear) this game using the same idea. Sweet!

i loved the plot twist

i love it :)

iam genuinely confused what the point of this game is

(+16)(-8)

video game is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a two- or three-dimensional video display device such as a TV screenvirtual reality headset or computer monitor.

i wasn't asking what a video game is i was asking what this specific video game is

(+10)(-5)

I'm still unsure how to answer your question.

Everyone's acting like this deservers a freaking GOTY but I don't understand what the fuss is

(+7)(-2)

We created the game within a weekend during a game jam and it's a short experience, it's obviously not GOTY but it's a fun little experience to play - at least we think.

nice!

Interesting.

It was made for a 48-hour global game jam. Something short and simple.

the linux version won't start, im running the latest version of linux mint

The music and the art was wonderful, but it was over before I even knew what was happening.

Really like the aesthetic! Great Job!

It seems like everyone is loving it because of the LGBTQ plot twist, but the game is just to short for you to really get invested or care about the main character.

The game made was during a 48-hour game jam, so there wasn't much time to create a fledged out story unfortunately.

its kind of like this trans vestite thing but its actually enjoyable

Hi if you are looking at this awesome and thoughtout game well, I said some words after it and if you wish to hear them then watch. Its a very deep game about the LGBTQ community

i am very confused lol :P

It kinda sorta doesn't work whatsoever for me. Just shows "BARB", then cuts to a (mostly) red-ish screen with a white dot.

Love it, love it, love it! this was a very different game and the way it played out, it was really nice and smooth! good job on creating this game!

This game ment alot to me. to see that someone knew what it was like for a person like me everyday from a diffrent point of view. to figure out that someone had made such a touching game that has really opened my feelings and to see i shouldent be ashamed of who i am. and that someone else understands my type of community. thank you for making this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3QKZn41YhE This game is beautifully designed I loved it!! Wish it was longer though!! Great job dudes!! here is my play through of it!! :)

I can't tell you how much this game meant to me, especially with so many people close to me that are within the LGBT community, including myself.

I hope you'll continue to make more games, even if they aren't strictly within this genre. Your concept for (I'd rather not say little, since the message behind is so large) this short game hit a lot of people, I'm sure, as it did for me.

Here's my playthrough, thank you, again.

Pulled in by the visuals, fell in love with the story and the sound effects... goodness, the sound effects were my favourite aspect, thank you for brightening my day!

The controls are a little bit strange and the game lagged a little, sometimes is difficult to pick stuff :D after all, great game
