This is very good. I'm usually not into visual novels but the random strangeness and profanity-laden charm is what makes this game endearing and excellent in my eyes. I look forward to whatever you work on next.
I loved this game, I bought the full game:
I am struggling to describe my experience without using hyperbole, but this game is special and good. There's a heart to every corner that radiates truth. I loved it.
loved it. thanks for sharing
THIS IS MY KINDA FUCKING GAME HELL YEAH HELL YEAH HELL YEAH
i was going to post some screencaps to a part that really hit me in a way i don't think i've ever realized before, but i figured it was a moment someone else might want to discover in the same way i did. so instead i'll just say, thank you so much for making this <3
This is a very intersting Demo, I would love to play the full game :3
This, frankly is beautiful, I personally adore Franny, i would love to play the full release, this is very exciting!
really good! my favorite visual novel so far!! i cant wait for the full release
would it be too meta to say this game is my gender now, because i love this dearly. something about typing in my pronouns that no one else uses for me but that i hold dear to my heart made this game a lot more personal, so thank you
Holy fuck, this is amazing :'D It's got everything I love. Can't believe I got to have my pronouns respected while making out with beings of existential horror. I can't even decide who's my favourite, they're all so great. Though Larry for sure is the hottest... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
(sorry for the late reply)
thank you so much! i hope you enjoy the full version too-- sadly we don't have an official release date.
I'm not a fan of visual novels -- I find them fanciful, predictable, and very often poorly written -- but this one's outright anarchic approach makes it more of what i can only describe as an ANTI visual novel. Nothing is idyllic or straightforward, and nobody knows what they want or how to get it. It has a message that speaks directly against the established norm for the medium and it delivers it well. Not to mention the art is grotesque, the humour is on point, the language is relatable, and the soundtrack is non-invasive and sometimes chilling. And, thankfully, unlike a lot of trans-oriented media, I don't find this to be preachy or heavy-handed. I think it communicates the psychological aspects of dysphoria with a very welcome dash of subtlety.
Also, it makes an AWESOME video thumbnail.
I'm really keen to check out the full thing. The story is too fascinating to end on a cliffhanger d:
(I wish I could speak like this out loud but while playing I could only manage a few awkward grunts...)

thank you so much! this is such a wonderful compliment. we don't have an official release date yet sadly.
I did not expect much at first, but I rather enjoy this game.
