Please update this game so Mac users can play too.

I LOVE THIS GAME! This style is not in games anymore which I miss a lot along with the art style, it's as amazing as always. Keep up the great work! (I'd love another game in this style if that would be possible <3)

This is a very pretty game. I love how this is actually like an old school typing adventure. I forgot what the genre is called but its so similar. The art is awesome and the variety of choices are fun. Amazing game.

lol found out there are so many ways when i played again. This is my old video btw

I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.

Aaaand you're here again :3

hahahah yeeee. Its them! Its them! From the Students Union

I'm not the cleverest person so I found this game to be difficult but once I got a understanding for it man was it interesting!! The story is much more detailed then I imagined and I am truly impressed! The artwork is so flowy and dreamlike and honestly it was amazing! Not that I'd expect less from this creator! Great game with a very interesting plot!

As the third game I've played from Angela He, this was certainly a fascinating deviation from the other two I have played. Going from a point and click adventure to a text-input system was a fun and engaging system! Although trying to find the correct combination of words to get the desired outcome was difficult, it added to the anxiety and the futile feeling that I feel like the game was trying to portray.

Here's my experience with the game:

I don't know if it's just my game, but has it not loaded for anyone else? Every time I try to load up the game, I get an error message with a "crash folder" as I like to call it. Does anyone know why this might happen?

This game really had me exploring my thoughts. I loved the art style and different paths to finding multiple solutions.

Thank you for the experience Angela!

Here's my playthrough for all to view

It's been a week since I played "Missed Messages" & decided to try another 1 of your games & gotta say just like the last just as uncaning & slightly creepy. Again it is a good game but god does it manage to creep under my skin easily.

hello! I can't open macOS version, it's saying that game should be updated. 

Which MacOS are you on?

(+2)

big sur 11.0.1

I've been sitting here forever trying to play, but my stupid brain can't get it and I don't want to cheat by using a walkthrough---

Can anyone give me a hint that'll help me crack more of this case without actually giving me the answer? This story seems so deep and interesting (It's Angela He, what else did I expect?) but aghdfahgaskjg-!!! I'm too stupid smh

(+2)

I LOVED this game...At first the title screen and the music was almost concerning and I was so confused but, as I played and learned more, the more it all made sense. The dead look in her eyes and the sad look in  his. I get it now...I love this so, so much.

please update the game so we may play on mac!

Was a great game. It shows an interesting point of view and how we have to find out all the clues by playing over and over. Was really fun to play and loved how it kept the player engrossed by making to find out more of the story.

(+1)

Is there anyway to update the game, its currently not compatible with the Mac Catalina version...

i really liked this game, although i didn't get anywhere for like 20, before searching up a walk-trough.  Aand i can't get the justice is served ending?? Cuz when i follow the youtube walktroughs, i get an extra step, not allowing me to get to the same things they get to???




Spoiler:





after finding her diary, the youtube walktroughs end, with justice, because she's a danger to close friends without medication. 

but when i play, i after that, find messages saying the bf threw a plate at her, giving me evidence against both. 

help?

the download for windows is broken

It's never an Angela He game without gay stuff.



or the lawyer is a girl

(1 edit) (+2)

this game is wonderful. i still havent figured everything out, even though i had been pretty much been trying at it for at least several months. but this game is so interesting, and i love it, alongside every game you make, Angela!





(also, spoilers!)

i was getting stressed/frustrated while trying to figure this out, and so i typed in "die" as a joke. i wasnt expecting anything to happen but something did, and i have honestly never laughed harder in my life. it was such a gentle way of telling me, too!

(+8)

im so broke or else I'd give Angela He all my money. 

(+2)(-3)

i love the art, but the game is too hard! like im really stupid but my MOM couldnt even help...all im smart abt is BTS lol. the HOT client got jail n a restraining order...

I would like to play this game on Mac Book but it would not allow me to do so since it needs a updated version. Please update this game. Thank you.

(+1)

A little bit tricky to figure out the text commands, but the art and story is compelling. A unique and dreamy game about a dark subject!

(+1)

I can't see the art for some reaso
