nice story,plz don't paly it just because of it's english!
This game made me so emotional during the entire time. I had an uncle, who died before I was born, by a drunk truck driver on Christmas Eve and now, I know how my grandmother felt when received the news. Thank you for making this great game.
Very nice game. The story was very emotional even if i didn't show it.
A swift punch to the feels. 11/10 would hold my emotions in again.
left me very upset, my partners youngest son died in a car crash, in which he was driving, this game has really shown me, how he feels, wanting to end things, but keeps on fighting, keeps on living for the ones he loves. thanks for opening my eyes to the pain of losing a child and a member of the family. seeing the photo of the little girl and her dad made me want to cry.
A very powerful message sent by this game, awesome job! P.S. I almost cried at the end.
This game appeals to me very much and i have a question to ask.
When did the accident happen?Before chapter 1 or after chapter 1.
i am very touched by the subject of the game, good job
Pretty good game got really emotional there at the end. I think if there had been somthing like flash backs or something to get to know the family a bit from the start would have been better. Its not bad but it felt a little bit light on anything meaningful for most of the game except for the end. I don't want to sound mean because I liked this game. However these are just my thoughts.
I really enjoyed playing it.
It makes you feel like you are actually experiencing the game.
I suggest playing it.
This game was so good! I enjoy how we go through the stages of grief so eloquently and the atmosphere and style are immersive. You guys really made a great game!
Absolutely beautiful game, it nearly made me cry. I have a family of my own so this hit really close to home. I absolutely loved it! I really enjoy games that make you feel something and this was art! I can't wait to see what you do next.
I really like this game it has a really well done story and the graphics are nice and i enjoyed playing it. If you would like to see my play through here it is 😉enjoy 😉
The way you depicted the feeling of isolation was incredible. Keep making games.
EDIT: Also, forgot to mention the way you introduced us to the family. Most of the time, stuff like that is done through diary entries or something like that, but having family photos really made it hurt a little more.
I liked it came in not sure what to expect other than it was kind of sad. Enjoyed myself, choked up a little at the end.
To get ready for the upcoming livestreams we're taking a look at Penthos. An exploration game where we try to find out what exactly happened in this house!
This was a simple game with an amazing story behind it. I wich all of you guys good luck on your studies!
This game really surprised me! I went in with no knowledge as to where this game was going to go. An emotional roller-coaster for sure! My heart goes out to anyone who has lost someone they care about. Awesome work on this game!
I'd say that this game is right up there with "That Dragon, Cancer". I evokes the same emotions and has a very similar art style and storytelling. It was a great story and full of emotions. I could fell the character`s conflict, loss and anguish.
I was sad and happy at the same time at the end of the game, more like experience as this is not merely a "game".
Well done Group B and I look forward to your next story!
Thank you so much! That is incredibly high praise. Glad to hear that the story resonated with you.
I love the story here. Very well done. The sound effects are on point! The big teddy bear startled me.
Thank you!! We're so glad you liked the story.
We definitely scared ourselves with the teddy bear a few times in development haha.
You all did a very good job. I aspire to be part of a team like this in the future. I'd love to see a breakdown of the game, who had what role, what did the development cycle and versioning look like, future expansion, any planned improvements, and so on. Excellent work. The story was well thought out and communicated well in a short amount of time.
Honestly one of the most powerful games I have ever played. It really was an emotional rollercoaster. Thanks for making this beautiful game.
Wow !!! What a superb story. All the emotions all tied into one great playthrough. The graphics looked nice with music to match and no problems with the game at all. A really well done to all involved on this one... :)
Powerful stuff you've made here. I went in expecting something a little dark because of the title, but I wasn't prepared for this. You did a fantastic job of communicating a short but strong story in a really concise, but meaningful, way. While the gameplay was minimal, it was everything it needed to be. Really well done.
