The game kept freezing on me and wouldn't progress!!!! Is this a bug? I did a let's play if anyone wants to check it out though. Happy New Year everyone! 

Hi! Sorry about the issue you are encountering, the parts in which you were blocked were multiple choices. You had to click on the text but unfortunately, the UI wasn't so clear about this and those parts look like normal dialogues...

Anyway, thank you for playing the game and we are happy you enjoyed the story even with this issue!!
f you want, you can try our other titles (they're more clear in how they work)!

Quiet and meditative. Nice game. :)

amazing art and whole atmosphere. impressed by the simplicity and naivete.

This game is gentle, short, and quiet, which I liked. I especially liked the watercolor look of the art, which really strikes the balance between minimal and detailed. Very interesting and definitely worth the play! 

Though one minor thing: sometimes it was difficult for me to distinguish the choice screen options from the regular dialogue text, which made me think the game froze. 

A great way to start the year

Played it and loving the quietness of it. The dialogues and narrative, short yet have a lot of impacts. Loving the interaction <3
