What a beautiful game! The ending literally made me cry. Thank you for gifting us with such a sweet and poignant story. Wishing you the best! <3


Thanks so much for this lovely comment. I'm so glad the game touched you. Wishing you all the best as well!

I was planning to privately contact with Amanda to tell her: "hey, Amanda, perhaps its good in a game to implement examine the main things", as I couldn't examine anything.

Then I thought, hey, perhaps I'm a ghost or something...

Finally I remember that the abbreviation for the examine command in English is "x" and not "ex" as in Spanish X.X

Starting to play but nice athmosphere... :)

I'm so glad you figured it out! I put so much effort into implementing every object that I'd be sorry to have folks miss it.

Thanks for playing it!
