everything about this was perfect. the graphics, music, story line, everything. i absolutely loved it and wish i could play it for the first time all over again! i loved the interactions in this and i feel like it really is something everyone should get a chance to play

You can sit at the top of Lori at night to listen to it!!

This is so sweet!! I love it so much!! ❤️ It brightened up my night a lot!

Hey, I love the game. It's really cute :) I just wanna tell u that while I was playing I found this one entrenched crystal and when I swam up to it, I got the entrenched crystal but it didn't go away so then I swam up to it again and I got another one. I did it three more time and it still didn't go away.

That happened to me, and i found the solution. Your inventory is full. So go back up to the tree, and drop a few crystals (not five. Then it will trigger the next scene) and go back down and you should be able to pick the crystal up.

Of course, that's how I did it, i'm not sure if it will work the same way for you. I hope it does though!

This game is just a nice, calm little story :) 

What do you mean by that?

(+2)

I just want to say that the game said something I wanted to hear and made me feel a little better. Thanks! (Also, you picked some really fitting music, good stuff)

(+1)

This is such a wonderful little game. It has immaculate vibes and verbalizes my feelings in a way that makes me feel like I'm not alone. Looking forward to more of your work!

That's so sweet, thank you!❤

A really nice game, but on the third dive, at the surface on both sides there is a pickup that doesn't disappear. I don't know if it's just happening to me because of my pc, but I thought I'd bring it up anyway.

Thank you so much for playing!!! I really appreciate the feedback :))

Your welcome

Might be a strange question but ... what button causes things to move? It loade3d fine, but after the first word bubble I can't work out what to click. (Space, enter, etc.)

(+1)

Oh that's strange. I've never had it be the ESC button before ... O:

(+1)

Stunning game! Loved it a lot.

Thank you so much for playing! You can also press E to interact! I should've made it clearer 😂😂

(+1)

I figured this out about midway though, ha ha. XD

The space button.

the game loading screen is so slow

just refresh, and take a deep breath. :)

oh

I like your sentimental, philosophical games, this one as much as 'Silhouette'. Our voice acting fits the melancholy. Hope you enjoy it.

(+1)

I made a friend!

Who?

You? ;{)

(+1)

It´s ok! Nice music in the end! 

(+1)

This was such a relaxing game and super chill. I feel like there could have been more visually appealing things under the sea when you're swimming around. The visuals on the whale were beautiful and the writing is good. 

(+1)

A little piece of art.

Amazing story graphics and music I really love it. I really would like to translate your game into Turkish(I can even translate it for free). If you are interested, contact me via this email address: meliksahcivitt@gmail.com

Thank you so much for playing and the kind offer! Unfortunately right now I'm not looking for translations for the game yet but I really really appreciated the offer.

(+1)

In my opinion, such an amazing game should known by more people 😁 but no problem still your game is amazing 😁

I'm A Big Fan Of The Artstyle and Music, I wish the game was a little longer so you could hang around in the world and enjoy the music.


I hope you keep working on it and expand the game

It's a touching game! I made a gameplay - and better, without pesky comments:

Thank you so much for playing!!

(+1)

This is neat! I notice that there's a green crystal in the final "level" (roughly in the centre, near the surface) that remains in place even after being collected and can be picked up multiple times, though. It's hardly game-breaking given that it's more of a narrative experience anyway, but I figured I'd let you know.

Thank you so much for the feedback!!!

(+1)

Such a beautiful and visually amazing game. I can't wait to see how this game will grow :)

(+1)

So short yet so touching! I love the concept and the atmosphere and only wish the game was longer. Amazing work!

Thank you so much for playing!! I'm planning on continue developing thí game so I'm really glad you liked it =))

(+1)

Overall an amazing game, only that if you dash straight on the surface by holding J, you will swim In the air.

Thanks for making this! :D

Haha thank you so much for playing!! I thought I've fixed that bug already =)))
