one of the weirdest game i ever played but it kinda nice that you have to keep running


I would love to play this game but it freezes at the "Pick French or English" screen. Is there anything I can do?

thank you for responding, ill check it out again


Beautiful game! I really enjoyed the first and last scene especially. Love that you left things open and unending yet did add changes to the environment so it felt more dynamic and personal to our choices instead of being a passive experience. I played through it then went back to each scene to talk about my interpretations of them and like others said, it was just really interesting!

The only issues I had were the game crashed as I reached the end of the last scene. It didn't after I relaunched. Also, there was an issue only in the menu screen where my cursor was showing to me in a different location than it was registering and capturing in the game and it made it hard for me to click on the menu options. 

I had to hover the cursor about an inch to the right and a little up from the item I wanted to click. Not sure if that was a build issue or something funky with my setup. Regardless, good job to you guys and good luck with future games!

Will there be an OST release? This was great. Thank you.

First bits of this I thought.. Meh.. But the last bit in the water was fantastic. This all ran great and the music matched perfectly. Great job... :)
