You are a beautyfull human for showing this to us , it must have ben hard remembering everything you had to go through but I realy apreciate thet you let us know how you felt

This was a beautiful game. Beautiful arts, beautiful story, and it has such a deep meaning. I hope this game will help people to keep fighting. I recorded some of my gameplay, here is a link if anyone is interested:

I was watching Jacksepticeye play this game. It made me burst into tears. my family was there for me. Much to this game for showing what my feelings are and what depression was. i didn't know what it was i had it for a while this game showed it. i still go through Anxiety, Social Phobia/Anxiety and Depression but i know not to give up. Much love to all~!! <3

thank you for making  this game...it's gorgeous in every way

Absolutely loved the artwork and music in this game! It definitely deals with some hard topics, but does it very gracefully. 

это лучшая игра, которую мне доводилось видеть, я буквально впал в любовь, здесь чувствуются эмоции, милый котик. Я с нетерпением жду эту игру на мобильные девайсы.

This game is really deep. You can tell by the games you create that there is a lot of emotion and, feeling than just telling a simple story. It goes past being a visual novel but, still remains being  a game.

My feelings for this game are bigger than words. Thank you for what you do <3

I just posted my gameplay video of this game below this post and you won't believe the feedback I've had on my Facebook! This game has brought so many people together. I've actually got a Friday weekly video that I post talking about games I've played through the week.

I'm going to post that hide here as I talk about the game and also mental health. I hope that's okay. If not I don't mind if this is deleted but i hope my video might help anyone struggling to cope 💙💚 I've left links in the videos description over at Youtube of various helplines you can call for help too 💚

Much love,

This game hit me hard. I've personally dealt with Mental Health issues myself although i'm lucky enough to have overcame them I'm still building myself up to become a better person.

Thank you for this game! <3

This is a game you need to play !!!  The atmosphere will just suck you right in. Beautiful art work and fantastic music push you in even deeper into the story. This is a brilliant piece of work and if your reading this then give the game a play. Superb... :)

This game is amazing! I loved that it was so open with dealing with the tough subjects.

whats the song playing on the start menu

the song is called "All About You" by Yung Sherman

I love this game so much and almost cried, this spoke to me because I've almost given up before and it really showed me how much better I've gotten at staying alive :)

I wrote about this gem here. Posted this under Ratings, but not sure if those are publicly viewable anywhere, 'cause I can't find them :P .

You might need Google Translate unless you speak Viking ;) .

when i finally managed to save her i started crying so hard for some reason, it was so beautiful, thank you angela you're amazing

Thank you - brilliant game. One question. The About text said it was based on real life + disassociative amnesia. Did you mean real life + studying dis associative amnesia, or that you have it?

Let me also just say, if you are really 19 and made this game, there is a future ahead of you in this craft for sure.

What can i say ...Weird experience ...realy deep .. i loved the game thanku devs !!

*dev. One person made this.

In 48 hours.

I just finished this game, and omg. This game gives you the empty and sad feeling. This feeling is so familiar to me, and probably to many others. This game shows you how it feels to have a depression and it shows you the feeling of losing someone. The feeling is horrible but so damn real. There are people who think depression is something that will pass if you just ''get over it'' and ''go outside and exercise''. People who say this should play this game, or people who want to know the feeling of depression. I've had a depression for 6 years now and I know what it feels like. Talking can help, so please do this. Tell people who care so they can help you and support you. And never forget, you are not alone. 

I would like to praise the art style and the effort that went in to this game. It was a emotional, beautiful and real experience. Thank you and love you!

Good little game about depression.

First of all...I cried. I cried like a baby after the video ended. I lost my mom when I was 13. And my sister 3 months after my mom. This is a stunning, and beautiful game, and I was happy I was given the chance to play it. Thank you for making such a game.

Is there anyway to buy/download the soundtracks from this game? perhaps the artist has it on spotify? would REALLY appreciate it! its freaking AMAZING!!!

Hit "About" in the main menu and she's listed the names of the songs, then take it from there :) .

Loved this game, I definitely plan on revisiting to try out all the different endings. It hit close to home with me, i really love these style games that make you actually feel something.

This game is extremely powerful and spreads a very impactful message that hits many. Definitely a game I recommend and exploring and damn it hits the heart strings a little. I know I didn't get all of the endings but I couldn't go on with the rest of them. It just broke my heart. Still such a well made and powerful game that will live on with me. 

This game, is amazing. I don't know how to explain it, but i love the way you program it! please keep up the good work!

This is a very interesting and deep blend of art, emotions and narrative. I was very intrigued of how you visually represented all this feelings, doubts and difficult life choices in this game, I think you have a very vivid imagination, and an excellent way to convey your thoughts into shapes and colors.

I made a video playing the game:

if anyone's interested, best of luck for your future projects, looking for more of your work!

my boyfriend played this game and is convinced that the :join: ending is good and wants to do the same. i don't know what to do?? help

(+1)

D: Sorry to hear that. Idk if it'll help but tell him it may be what he, I, and many others would like to do, but it's certainly not good. You'll never get to wake up from the dream world of grief and get to experience the good things that might happen in the future, like you, the person he's dating.

Might be a good idea to acknowledge things while keeping perspective on the present at the same time. Yes it is hard to lose someone, but remember that you still have people that are important to you and care about you right here right now. Time heals all wounds, and in time things will happen as they will.

I too got a distinct feeling that the "Join" option was the "happy ending", even more so than "Live". I'm sure this wasn't the developer's message and that there's a deeper meaning. Perhaps they're portraying what suicide can feel like to a person who is grieving and actively suicidal, but I can see how it can trigger people in similar situations to have thoughts of SU.

I'm sorry this has caused your boyfriend to have suicidal thoughts. My advice is to seek professional help if you are worried. I know this is a late reply, but talk to your doctor, or a local suicide prevention/psychiatric organisation. You'll get more concrete advice from them.

This is an amazing work of art. I'm sorry that I can't give you the support your team deserves, but I can say that you have made something remarkable.

How do I run the game?

hAVE YOU TRIED PLUGGIN YOUR COMPUTOR INTO AN ELECTRIC SOCKET ?

OH LOL CAPS 

(Edited 1 time)

The feeling and emotion this game gives was awesome while playing it. The art, music, and the dialogue driven story really makes it a fun interesting experience! I posted a short video of me getting a good ending when I  played through the game! I hope ya like 

I can't explain this synthesis of emotion, memories upon memories, some we can't forget, and some we can't get back, it's just not the same. Thank You for immersing us into this vivid world as an experience, and a story. Best wishes for those struggling with areas of life simmilar to this, and that you can go on to fight the good fight.

this it the BEST realistic game EVER! As someone who has gone through this (not exactly but u get my drift) I LOVE IT!

this game really fucked me up, bro; love the music, dig the artwork and surreal imagery, and the emotional content really got through to me. fuckn fantastic

This Game is deep. Survive or give in. In my life today. Never give in. I love the metaphors in this game and how this environment could easily become our world. 

Does anyone know how can I get the game wallpaper without the "You Left Me" typing

(+1)

I really enjoyed the art in this game. Very nice!!

Can anyone tell me the song in the trailer please because songs like that help make me forget the bad things in this world.

It's in the About section of the game.  It's I can't forget you by rxdlxst. Gl :( 💕
