This was an amazing play. Nice!

Happy to hear that Julian. Thank you!


Will there be an ACT II soon?

It COULD take a while. Probably a few months. 
I ended up picking up a different project and want to finish it up before coming back to this one. 

So yeah... I'm sorry for jumping ships, and not immediately following up on this project. ( ̄~ ̄;)


That's honestly fine! Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Thank you! Thank you for words. 

It's very encouraging to hear that. 



Woah, thank you so much Nicola!

Played it! Your writing is still great even for a 10 mins game. And as I mentionned before the atmosphere is on point, good choice of bgm's, too!
One thing I noticed though, green-haired blind guy and redhead girl aren't breathing in the last scene.


Ah, you caught that... very perceptive of you.

THAT... was a technical issue. I was putting in the plugin command to make them breathe, but they wouldn't. 
I skipped fixing it because the submission period (for the game jam) was about to end.

(Also, Thank you so much for playing & for commenting about it!)


Welp, it happens :p
