Really awesome style with the 3D and pixel art combo. Would've loved to have known what the argument was about, maybe I missed something? Not super important though. Is this set in the year 2060+ or am I just imagining lol? Wish I had a bedroom as cozy. Thanks!


!! Spoilers !!

The argument was about the main character’s rude and stressed behavior due to burnout and over-working. The MC denies that they’ve been having problems and avoids the confrontation from his roommates which ends in a fight. What they exactly fought about? It’s not really written into the game so you didn’t miss anything regarding that.

Thanks for playing and sharing your play through!

hey this is a lovely game, but it is suppose to close itself? at the end

(1 edit)

!!! Spoilers ahead!! . . . Yes! If you decided to stay, it’s suppose to close itself to represent taking a break. If you decided to go, the game would restart with the cut scene to represent repeating the cycle of stress and burnout.

A bit metaphorical and not the cleanest ending but since it was a school project I had to rush to get it down.

Thanks for asking!



Thanks!! I got it done under a month so i’m super happy about it. Thanks for playing!
