iam genuinely confused what the point of this game is
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Experience the life of Barbara, an ordinary person with very normal daily rituals... or is there more to it?
"If you're anything like me, you'll spend another five going 'oooh' and 'aaah' over all the chunky low-poly models, exquisitely lit."
(Tom Sykes, PC Gamer)
"There are many ways people can send a message in order to prove a point, but it's always very thrilling do it in the form of a major twist at the end of an apparently normal story."
(Alexandru Dulcianu, ★★★★☆ (3.5/5) Softpedia)

i wasn't asking what a video game is i was asking what this specific video game is
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
No, I toooootaly didn't assume Barb was a girl right away.
What is this game supposed to be?
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!
Loved the art style of this game and it threw me for a loop!
A very stylish game, for sure.
check out my gameplay
longest game iv ever played 4.5/5 :D sounds were very creepy xD
Looks cool.. i love simulation games!!
I love this. What a beautiful 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
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.
I made a Lumps Play. This game was a nice little quickie. Kudos!
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
Hi guys and Developers !
I played this game and fell in love with the graphics , sound and the STORY !!!! This was amazing , i was little confused what was supposed to happen and not sure what story was but than i realized , it happen while i was editing my video ! I will be so happy and will buy full game in future , keep up the good work AND complete the game , i want more <3 . This was truly an amazing Experience !
my play through is here
Much Love , Miral
It was really short, but it was still very well done!
Even though it was a very short game, it had a very deep meaning behind it. I enjoyed it very much
That was certainly not what I expected from this game. That quote at the end hit me hard. That's exactly how it happened for me, too. I stopped being who I wasn't. Thank you for this game, the graphics and controls were easy and it was really powerful, even being so short.
having trouble launching the Mac 2.0 version, but 1.0 works fine. Tried downloading multiple times and couldn't get it to work
Great game! Beautiful and everything. I figured the twist out a while before I took the shower - for some reason I was afraid that the game will be scary so I read this page again and it just somehow made perfect sense for the twist to be what it was - so, on that note - nice twist. Nice buildup. Nice message. Kind of hit close to home. Made me smile. Thanks.
This game had a very interesting feel. The atmosphere and sound effects are on point. i would love to see more game like this and in the same style. As for the subject topic I believe that it can be very controversial, but the way that the game creators presented it was perfect. I would recommend the is game to anyone. Here is my take, and walk-through of the game.
ok, i dont... the game is great but, i dont anterstand
are you sure this is free, and you wont get in trouble for downloading this? because, im pretty sure that paint the town red isnt free, and it is on this site
Hey, developer here, the game is completely free to download. We've made the game during a 'game jam' which is where you create a game with a team within a set time period (48-hours) and decided to release it for free, if you ever see it online being sold - contact us!
how can i unzip the file on mac because it says that it cant be opened??
what an interesting game! I wish I had known about this one sooner! The twist ending really caught me by surprise and I loved it!
