i’m not crying you are...
this is such a beautiful story. i replayed it a couple times before i got to the old age ending. it was so emotional, i cried at the end. the perfect example of what if’s and wishing for different endings. i don’t know which ending was the true ending, but i wonder if maybe august had imagined some of those endings in order to move on? i’m sure the one where they’re old is the true ending, but i like thinking she got carried away with imagining this big wonderful life with her.
one thing i think would be good to add is a content warning though. i know someone else made that comment as well. at first i was playing it and my boyfriend was watching, but he soon became triggered by the brain tumors and virus scenarios. he has severe health anxiety and i think it would be good if there was a warning so others don’t become triggered.
still a beautiful game and i can’t wait to see what else these creators come up with! :)
Amazing LGBTQIA+ game
Where to start, first the main character is a beautiful transgender woman. Her love interest is a also amazing lesbian woman. Also the choices actually impact the story and what seems to be some of the smallest choices, really impact their story.
They also make it realistic by having them quarantined for some of their story.
I played threw the game and got all of the endings each one made laugh, one made me cry and just told a story.
Oh and the beautiful art! Each piece of art is beautifully drawn and shaded with a beautiful color palette. They do re-use pictures but very rarely.
Also the dialogue, it’s realistic and funny.
They sound like real people.
It’s just right. It’s funny enough for it to not to devalue the game and also is great enough to add to the story.
The music, it was amazing and it adds emotion and just adds so much to the characters and story.
Over all this game is amazing.
I was always rather a fan of Angela He and her work but this took it to a whole new level,,her games are amazing and better yet the effort she puts into it with the music and the art. I’m glad to say she hasn’t disappointed at all with this beautiful and nostalgic game. Her games always seem to hit right into your feelings and truly captures the upmost euphoric feeling of falling in and out of love, thank you for your amazing work and I hope someone out there find this game and loves it just like I did <3
