Loved it!

Lovely game, quite sad! All of your games are beautiful and always hit home for me. Thank you for creating them. <3

Wow this game is just wow.

:}<3

The other endings made this game so much more amazing. So much explained and so many more details . Loved it! 

Reminds me of Air Pressure. Both are pointed on a type of lonely caused addiction.  Good Job!

it was me DizzY the Whole time- love this chilling story like hit me in a personal spot
 

Really wasnt expecting this kind of depth for such a short game. I was kinda confused by the first ending i got but I think getting the other ones helped me figure stuff out.

Not a big fan. It's too quick, like not just story but the dialogue feels rushed and that my decisions don't really matter. Not enough time to get used to each character and understand them. Music didn't really fit and the story was average. I felt this was more an attempt at being deep but inevitably felt lack luster.

I can't find the fourth ending... a hint please?

This game was really interesting! I loved the music, art, and plot! Good job!

I played this game a long while on my main channel. Saw that it's back rising on the popular list and, had to play it again on this secondary channel! This time knowing what the context was left for a much much shorter game. 

I'm glad your game has a lot of popularity as, you made it well and, has a deep message to it.

Well if markiplier played it then i gotta play it 

A really beautiful game looking forward to playing others

Hey! 

Really gorgeous game as usual, but I think i completely missed the context on this one. Probably cuz of the choices that I picked!

Anyway, kudos!

Haunting and lovely. The art is gorgeous (as it is in all your games) and the music really contributed to the sense of atmosphere. It's short and cryptic, but I really loved it nonetheless. 

Hi! I just wanted to say that I love all of your games, they look stunning, sound amazing and feel like a drug trip, I really hope you keep up the great work and thanks for making these games.

I really love this!

I loved this game. It's short, but absolutely wonderful. The tone is so amazingly creepy, the artwork gorgeous, and the music perfect. Thanks for making it!

This game is so visually stunning. It's absolutely breathtaking.

Phenomenal game and great art style and story!

wow i really didn't expect all this when i downloaded this game. the artwork is absolutely stunning, and the writing is fluid and interesting, not to mention the whole distortion bit that really adds to the game. certainly a work of art. one of my most favourite games!!

Awesome game! And with a Linux version.

Nooooooooooo! She left me? Maybe? Possibly?

my head actually hurts when the graphics turned distort.... (when the story becomes bad?)

Thank you for making a Linux version. It's appreciated.

of course!

I think, I'm in love now...

I don't get it.

Then you are thinking too literal... 

I love everything about this game! Holy crap! One of the best games I've played in my life!

The visuals of this game are amazing, and the music fits perfectly the tone. I have enjoyed it, although i think it's got some flaws.

SPOILERS AHEAD

(first, I'd like to apologize for my crappy English. I'm not a native speaker)

Sometimes it's not clear what you are choosing with the dialogue options: For example, when she asked about her pants, I said that I had threw them off the window because I thought it was a joke, so when I discovered that I was choosing what actually had happened, it was stunning for me, but not in the right sense. It was kind of disappointing.

On another ocassion, after choosing another option, some years passed. It felt really weird that what seemed a few weeks then turned into years. It may seem like it fits the game because "when you are with that person, you lose track of time", but the character you are controlling is completely conscious about the years passing. Maybe it would be better to realize that years have passed with some twitst, I think it would fit better the point of the game.

Also, I didn't fully understand what exactly happens when the character shows his friend the pic of "the girl you have been meeting" on the phone and then it's just you alone. I kind of understood that you were having a bad time and were hallucinating, but that clashes with the previous part in whic you say you are calm and your mind is clear. I don't know, I got a little lost there.

However, it's got some kind of "feeling" to it. After I finished it for the first time, I played it again twice and got different endings. I specially liked the one in which you trust your friend to help you out of your situation. I would gladly play a game like this, with a more complex, elaborated story, and some mechanic to spice it up.

This game was amazing.  The visuals and the soundtrack made the game feel unique. It also made you feel invited but at the same time put off by what was going on.  At the same time, you couldn't help but to feel suspicious about what was going on.  After you play it, you have the sense of longing and a desire to see if you can get a different outcome if you made different choices.  I went back and got two of the four ending.  If you want to know what I'm talking about, play the game for yourself.  I promise you it will be worth your time.

This was beautiful.  The music and visuals are wonderful, and complement each other so well - both tranquil and eerie, inviting and suspicious. 

I played it late at night, lights off, with headphones, and rain tapping at the windowsill. It was very easy to get pulled into the game; I played through multiple times to get all of the endings. I was full of questions, and suspected everything - I love how you plant little seeds, and the player can let their mind wander. 

And all that aside, the "feeling" the game creates is definitely one that stays with you. Thank you for making this!

I really enjoyed the game! I liked the glitchy effects and the feeling of "is this in a simulation oorrr....". I might've been one of the only people that got that vibe, just go with it haha. But yeah, the art styles and visual of this game was absolutely inspiring as well as captivating.  

this game was amazing

Really good game I also played "He Beat Her" really complex, simple but deep story with some hidden meanings......at least that's how i feel, hope you make more games!
