I liked this game well enough. :) It had some highly enjoyable elements and story components. The only issues I took with it was the fact that it seemed a bit disconnected. I found myself wondering what was going on near the end in particular. But the story and the way the game worked? Wonderful. Greatly enjoyed how the 'player' could move around.

Those scene transitions blew me away, bitsy is so versatile.

This is bliss for the eyes and heart. Love it. Few questions though:

-Do the arched trees really exist? even if made up by some human touch?

-Do i spot a reference to Real Cave Story here? or is it unintended? =)


I hadn't played Real Cave Story before -- but I have now, and really liked it. Cave paintings, and humans-as-artists are two things I think about a lot.

And regarding the arched trees -- it would be nice if nature remembered us with something like fondness, but I doubt it.


Very poetic, touching. I like the free movement around the environment in a way that remains explainable, sort of, in a Bitsy way.


finally got to play this now – phenomenal art and writing! love the title page as well. great work!!!!


Thank you so much -- I loved Continental Drift, so that means a lot. (I saw you at the LIKELIKE thing, and wanted to say hi, but I didn't want to fan-gush!)


wah thank you so much!! you should have said hi! LIKELIKE's virtual gallery thing is so good im so glad we got to be part of it!

This was absolutely beautiful. I am in love with the narrative and the pacing, this was wonderful~

I love the art! It must have taken a while but it looks lovely! 

The story is so lovely and melancholy!

It's beautiful. I love what you did with the title page, and all the details. Very atmospheric.
