I'm currently on a break from content creation but the developer of this game reached out to me with a code to play this game and it peaked my interest so much that I made time for it anyway! I'm glad I did (I think?) While it's a good game it is NOT a fun time. The warning at the start isn't lying. If you like emotionally messed up games this is for you! It made me sad, which I'm fairly certain it set out to do, so good job!
