Love this game sooooo much!!!! thanks creator!
This is awesome , thank you for creating this game !
Hi, i made account just to comment on this. I have played all of your games and wanted to say how amazing and well done they are. Every time i see a new one has come out i download it and play all the endings, although i am unable to donate i hope when i get a consistent source of income to finally be able to donate. I just wanted you to know all of your visual novels mean a lot to me. This one especially hit hard because i was able to relate to May, she reminds me of myself when i was going through darker times. Her problems hit close to home so being able to have endings where she got better or was just able to even survive felt good. Your novels never fail to make me cry and i just wanted to thank you for these works of art. Love playing them and seeing how you approach difficult concepts like depression and suicide, looking forward to future projects. Thank you and here's to making it through, one night at a time :)
hello. 10,000th random person here to tell you this game's excellent. appreciated all the small details, like, for instance, the choice bubbles being clouds when talking on the bed and violent scribbles in the bathroom scene. excellent ethereal visual presentation and choice of music. i plan to go for the "finished homework" ending sometime
This game inspires me so much, and the game was also sad and depressing, too. This is such an amazing game, keep up the good work! :)
Absolutely loved this game! It had such relatable characters and an open-minded view about a sensitive topic. The art is also simply beautiful alongside the soundtrack it came with.
Here's my long playthrough take on the game
Amazing game. The art direction, the dialogue choices, the music; It was such an intense, yet realistic experience. I would love to see more work from this developer, maybe a similar concept, with a different story.
I love this game. Great message, beautiful. I love the multiple endings too.
Such an amazing game
the game was sooooo amazing to be honest, and it has the refrences from our modern day.It can be relatiable to many aspects from our lifes, with such amazing colors
I made this account to tell you that this game legit made me BAWL MY EYES OUT AT FRIKKEN 12 IN THE AM, WHY HAVE YOU DONE THIS AAAAA T0T
Hi. I've recorded the first part of the game. I'm planning to play the rest.
i loved it, such a beautiful work of art. i love the art style, absolutely stunning, and the story was sweet. i will check out all your other games now!
It was sooo good! I am an game creator myself and every game, you made that I tried, was just awesome .
The themes are confronting but the message is moving and very important to hear.
I would be honored if we could collaborate to create a game about disabled people.
Let's say, I got an insider's experience i would be happy to share.
If you or anybody else is interested in a game collaboration (about confronting themes) hit me up here or on Twitter @LexiGameDev
Hey, I'm currently working on a game about eating disorders and will be very keen to work on other similar projects. I followed you on Twitter (@K_Bronowicka), message me on there if you're interested :)
Really, really good. So much of this resonated with me, and I love how tangible all of this felt.
I played this game through Steam... Oversimplified, insensitive and EXTREMELY manipulative...the story in this game is horrible. Not even the beautiful artwork/music can save it.
The themes of suicide and depression can't just be sprinkled into a story (like sprinkling seasoning on your food). You either go in-depth (in an empathetic manner) or leave them be; careless handling of these subjects can actually be damaging to those playing the game (whether you have a trigger warning at the start or not).
Would you mind to elaborate?
i thought the themes of depression and suicidal thoughts were handled really well actually.
did you play it only once?
i discover you thanks to a french video games magazine named Canard PC. i try missed messages, and i m now totally fall in love of your videogames.
xoxo, from France
(and sorry, if i was adult, i could buy you a coffee :c)
best art and memes. this is so sad for my gay heart
Hi there, I am a youtuber and hope to get some support from everyone by leaving a like and subscribe on my channel.
This game is amazing. The artstyle is great the storyline is great. Most importantly, this game explores suicide and depression through the roommate of the protagonist. I really love the way those topics were explored by the creator.
There was one part where I was a little unhappy about. When you decided to go to the goth girl's room and our dear roommate opened her door to wish us happy birthday and made strange remarks, I personally in real life would have chose to stay with my roommate. In other words, I would have changed my mind about going to meet the goth girl but it wasn't an option, forcing me to return home to find her dead body later. I guess forcing the player to meet the goth girl after you decided to meet the goth girl would allow the player to know that actions have consequences but I personally would have thrown all the things I had to do on the ground and stayed with my dear roommate. Overall, this is an awesome game. Thank you.
how do you ply the game
my heart! it was so good!!
I really love all of your games and I plan to play them all on my channel. This game captures mental health very well and I enjoyed it so much.
Love this game and had such a good time exploring it. It's emotional and touches your heart in the smallest but purest ways. Check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
i played this on steam and then thought how similar this was to "there's this girl" and i fell in love even more when i realized you were the same creator... !
this game did something for me considering how horrible and much of a drag my year... not to mention the past few months of life... relatable memes and depression and it was my birthday today too? haha this game had my attention even more now
i'm so glad to have played... it brought me... some peace, thank you !
> BIT OF A SPOILER FOR ONE OF THE ENDINGS
(ps i was wondering if the dream she had where we died bc of a disease spreading was a nod to one of your other games on here LOL)
I loved how this game was relaxing and very realistic. Please, if you are suffering and you think that no one undertands you please understand that there is always going to be someone there who will listen and provide you the care that you need. It could be a family member or a friend, or even a random stranger, no matter what always remember that you are important, to those close to you, to your acquintances and the world itself. You are much more important than what you think. I love you.
made an acc to say that im in love with this game (more like all of your games) & the art style is SO spicy
im in love with may i s2g,,, the hope ending was so sweet?? i love how realistic and immersive the writing is and may even talks about wanting to write her own game with psychological/relatable elements while im like bro... so about that 20k word long hp fic...
but really i wanted to actually hug may at one point and i applaud you for making me so attached to a character so quickly. that shit is bomb af. and coming from a chinese family i felt that may... sometimes it's still difficult to be happy even if you know that your own parents have been through much worse from their own childhoods. hard to know if my own family loves me too since it's not even a thing to show affection in our culture.
ntm i almost cried at The Scene considering how much it reminded me of me and my own friends man
anyhow good job on making me gay for a character in 0.2 seconds
this is such a beautiful game.
i made this account just to talk about it lol
this game touched me very deeply and i have resonated with some of the things may felt and went through.
it's full of raw emotion and deals with some heavy topics, and i appreciate it so so much.
This game is really beautiful. In particular, there was clear attention paid to making May so hauntingly beautiful that she stands out among every other character.
(I also appreciate that the main character has a trans flag, but doesn't actually mention it. It's there but it's a non-detail.)
I really have to start heeding trigger warnings. This game honestly terrified me, and I'm still feeling it a little. I've had a lot of similarities with May, and I've been in the position of the main character, trying to keep my friends from dying.
I don't regret playing the game. Maybe that fear is why it seems more important to find therapy. So, thank you.
the game is so good. it made me feel calm but also empathetic. i know how it feels to be may and honestly gtting the Hope rout made me happy.
ok, i'll keep it short - this game is just a masterpiece: the art, the music, the atmosphere, the message.. felt in love with that style <3
You probably won't read this, but it was a beautiful game. Hard to play through, but it left me with a surprise I hadn't realized.
I thought if you put me in that world I would be the main character, but I realized as I went through to the hope ending that I was May.
I had to walk away from the game and cry for awhile, never had any game make me walk away like that. It is a beautiful game, and I am definitely going to check out the other games you have done... I can't express how much it meant to me.
I was soo moved by the game that I felt deeply inspired to write and record a song, using the instrumental that plays in the background of the game!
I really wasn't expected such a touching game! I felt so sad with the first ending I got that I immediately play it again, according as much care I could to my actions! I was worried all to way long to make it right! You did create real emotions and it was an amazing experience to play! And the art suits perfectly too. I want to play it again and in the same time I'm afraid of the others endings I could get...
The game is the reason why i create this account to express what i think about it. Its the second time i played this game again, it is so real and it hit close to the reality, As a 14yo kid, me personally is stressed out because shit was going through my life as i grew older and i started thinking about how's fucked up my life was, my childhoods ruined, and i am not prepared for my adult hood to face the same consequence when i was young, i found this masterpiece, its haunted but beautiful at the same time, wish i could find the hope that May found, but no, I cant guarantee myself that my future will be better since i decided that i wont live another year of suffering anymore. After all, I enjoyed the game, atleast this is one of the beautiful things i achieved before going to end my suffering at the end of this year. Dying is my solution, I never wanna live to remember things that ruined my life, I'm glad that i found this game before being a dead person somewhere before 2020 started.
I apologize for the length of this comment ahead of time.
This is the first time I've commented on a game, but I felt like I had to. This touched me very, very deeply, and hit closer to home than I expected any game to. I didn't know what to expect, going into this game, so when the first bad ending hit, I was completely unprepared.
It almost felt like you have to get a bad ending first. You need that dream, that experience to push you to really fight to get your character to stay and spend time with May. It took me another bad ending before I realized I could approach her and ask if she was doing okay. I tried to ignore the goth gf at first, but didn't realize we'd still leave and go get dinner with friends.
Having been in the position of the playable character, as well as May's.. It hit me hard. It's a little embarrassing to admit, but when I first read about the dream, "No, don't go, don't go alone" - I cried. I don't know why, but I cried. I cried because I've felt that fear for someone else, I've felt that fear for myself. "Don't go alone, stay here, I'll be here", and "Please, I don't want to go, but it feels like I have to. Please don't leave me with myself".
The way the characters talk about depression felt so real and raw. Everyone experiences depression differently, but I empathized so hard with May. It was almost a healing experience, choosing different bubbles to talk about with her and reading the conversations they had about it. It was such a healthy interaction - and the options of "why are you sad" vs "wait" really stuck out to me, when you catch May in the bathroom. It felt like helping May required the right mix of proaction and reaction. You can't keep pushing forward to get her to speak, but sometimes, you need to take the first steps - sometimes few, sometimes many - to save a life.
I'll stop rambling now - I just wanted to say, thank you. This was beautiful in every way. The meat of the game was unexpected and impactful, it was done well, the atmosphere and art fit wonderfully. It felt real and impactful - It's definitely made me think. I appreciated the use of trigger warnings, as well. Personally, this game handled the topic in a way that was blunt enough to really hit me, but didn't trigger me.
Will definitely be playing Angela He's other games.
Take care everyone. You do matter.
I usually don't comment under games but this one really hit me. I got a bad ending first then the Hope ending. The way the characters communicate and act feels so real. Please, if you're having trouble, ask for help. You are worthy. You deserve everything. There are people in the world who loves you and cares for you and will definitely miss you when you're gone. Talk to them. Please don't think that you have to do this on your own.
how do you get the hope ending? that's the only one i have yet to unlock
you just choose to be with her at all times basically
Spoiler Alert (Walkthrough for Hope Ending)
This is completely based on what I did by the way:
1. Go to laptop, you can choose to accept the message or not I don’t think it matters but don’t reply with anything.
2. Keep working until the main character says she hears voices from May’s room.
3. Go knock on May’s door and ask her to hang out. Tell her to take a break.
4. Talk to her about her day, the sky, but not about your dream yet. When she starts getting sad, don’t mention depression.
5. Say that you understand and that you can help.
6. Talk to her about your dream. Ask about her dreams.
7. Let time pass.
8. It’s now afternoon, May’s door’s open. She’s not there. Go to the bathroom.
9. Ask her if she’s really okay. Hug her when she tries to leave.
10. Don’t ask her why she’s sad, just wait.
HOPE ENDING ACHIEVED!!!
I got 2 bad endings and now what i think is the good ending. Im scared to play again because i don't want another bad one.
edit: I don't know if that ending was good or not? The survivor ending. THe last option was to text or to forget. Would I have gotten a ending I already have?
edit 2: same ending but different image.
Final Thoughts about the Game: Wonderful game, I love the art style and hwow the story pans out in each path. I Like that the game took on such a dark topic and handled it so well without it becoming cliche. Good game solid 8/10
I got the "hope" ending, not sure if its the most positive outcome, but it felt like it. I have played multiple times and for some reason I can't get the survivor ending, I just get the "missed message", "forgiven" and "hope" ending.
This game is honestly so beautiful and so sad it gets me in my feels :'( I love it so much you did a great job on this. So proud!
