very nice, simple game and big idea. Nice song too!

hey, i just finished playing the game and all the text from the other characters was just gibberish.. was this a mistake on my part? i just want 2 kno so i can experience the game in its entirety, thank u

no, don't worry. it was intentional

have you ever heard people without being able to listen?

thanks for playing

thank you for the response! the game was a very good experience, thanks for making it :)

This game wasn't fun... It was beuatiful. The music was lovely including going through it, even if it's so short I honestly loved it!

Loved this so much! Really striking and thought provoking.

beautiful game and music..
