VERY NEAT GAME.

It was a decent way to show the stages of grief, but there was not a lot of animation going on, especially during the depression stage. Overall, it was a sad game and I did enjoy it. I also recorded it, if anyone cares.

As someone who has lost a sibling when we were both teenagers, I had high hopes of this game, as the grief is still very raw. It's a cute little game, but didn't really tug at my heartstrings in the way that I thought it would, considering the positive messages from others.

I get the concept, but the small things like the animation of the walk when going up slopes was a bit off, and the subtle black line above the character when they're stationary.

I would recommend it as a small and quick game to play, as it does take less than ten minutes, and the characters are very sweet with the unique art stye, so that's a positive too.

I honestly felt the sadness. It was like a painting that had come to life, only partially. This was beautiful and really had me thinking about my lost loved one. You did a phenomenal job showing how all five stages feel. 

Thank you.

While the background art was gorgeous, it didn't feel like a living world. Nothing moved, there was no real ambiance. The underwater scene was the worst part (still really good though), may i suggest adding some sort of particles to make it feel less like a green screen. It was great! This is just a bit of constructive criticism. 

Very moving, wonderful graphics and music!
