A beautiful game, buut...

A beautifully stylistic and intriguing game. The set up is interesting and engaging and wanted me playing more the second I got off. The set up was really nice, it held a lot of potential for a slow-paced little slice of life game as we could watch our character evolve and climb up in the world. As well as watching her relationships grow stronger and make choices.
But,(and spoilers) I have to say the abrupt ending was somewhat disappointing. I feel like after she started her own company the game was just kicking off, but to my surprise it just ended. I would have loved to dig deeper into the story and I honestly thought it was going to be a bit long for how much it costed. Mind you I’m not disappointed over all. It just seemed a bit strange for me, I guess I should have read into it more before buying every game that catches my eye hahaha.
Ill look forward to seeing more games like this!👌🏽

Not a game.

I was so excited for this and immediately downloaded it before I read the reviews. Man, do I wish I would have before I wasted $3 for 30 minutes. This app is not a game. it is visually stunning & i absolutely loved the music. But it was just endless tapping and going through a story rather than having the freedom of doing anything yourself. I loved the idea of this game but I felt like I was in a VERY long tutorial and never got to have any input of the actual player. This game had so much potential too since i’m a huge fan of Grave Yard Keeper. I recommend that game over this one a thousand times. This just seems like such a waste and i’m very disappointed. Another thing I disliked was that there was so many time gaps like you cremate one body and then you’re next body is two months later ? It just seemed so weird that the “game” was trying to pass time so quickly rather than letting the player actual go through different months and days. The ending was supposed to be a cute “aww good for her!” moment but it’s completely lost since there is NO connection to the main character or the other characters in the game since there is no freedom to actually do anything other than what the game wants you to do. Don’t bother downloading this because there’s no point to replay this scripted story. Uninstalling now.

From a fellow interested player.

This was a great game. From the cute art style to the transitions. Everything was simple yet cute. The story seemed quite interesting especially if you took your time to dive head first into this cute story. Though it was quite cute and interesting it did leave a bit to be yearned for. For instance, in a game that I have to pay for I am looking for a bit longer of a game. Not one I could sit down and do in a single sitting. Of course no offense to the creators in every regard except the last I was very pleased with the quality of this game. The only other problem which for me was a minor one was the lack of music, though I did see a menu for the music and an adjustment to the music I could not seem to make the music work. Which again meaner very little to me especially since this game was, as I have already stated, cute, interesting , and very good at sucking the player in and allowing for them to connect with the story.

Not only that but it also was really interesting to learn so much about the post-death process and what the earth friendly options are. Looking forward to more games. Thank you!
