i love this game

Hi! I was wondering if your ok if I stream the browser version of your game for a video?

Of course! Feel free to post the VOD here as well once you've streamed it :)

Made an account just for this, I love it so much! I got the "remember your roots" end and I honestly don't want to see any other endings. But ugh, girl, just put them on a USB and add it back later, that folder is waay too important! I write fanfics right now, and that's some amazing writing!

AAAAAAAAAA I'm glad you enjoyed it ;O;

Hell, I'd call this 'connection'

XDDD

Although I still write things and am still young, but, yeah. Things I wrote when I was younger are really funny and awkward to read now.

D'aww this was so cute. What a nice little trip down memory lane. Really reminds me of all the old fandoms I used to be super into. Cute!!

Thank you ^^ I'm glad you enjoyed it uwu

The game was short and fun, with a soothing visual style; the MC's sprite has a calming color palette (she's so cute!) and the soft-focus background supported that. I appreciate that it doesn't assume it to be entirely terrible or cringe and does a surprisingly good job of encompassing a range of fanfic: Fix-fixc, unfinished fic (yeah, that one's me), the ever-present Coffeeshop AU, the fics that are really more about you, the writer. I'm one of those people who almost never delete old fics, for nostalgia's sake, but I liked that there was no 'wrong' way to go about it, just different ways.

Brief but enjoyable, like a well-written oneshot!

Glad you liked it~! ^^

I agree with others, it's an interesting concept, and it was made with love, I can tell. I wish there was a bit more to the endings. I'd love to see keyboard controls, too...

Thank you for playing~ My hope is to create a Ren'Py version in the near future which should address those concerns uwu

I never wrote fanfics, but the game still gave me that nostalgic feeling you get when you riffle through folders in old hard drives and discover stuff you had completely forgotten about!

This was a great concept for the jam, well done!

(+1)

OMG thank you ^^

Y'all'd'nt've put in y'all'd'nt've if I ain't said a word now huh?

This is such a great concept! I felt like I really connected with the character!
