aw I can't play this :( I'm on my Windows laptop in the firefox browser. Maybe it would work on Chrome? I've just been having problems with Chrome itself, otherwise I would try ><

I have fallen in love and its name is Serenity at Dusk.

In all seriousness though, I love this game. It is strangling my brain in a headlock (idk how that would work but anyway). 

The atmosphere? *chef's kiss*

The music? *chef's kiss*

The characters? *french kiss* (politely)

All in all 10/10, invisible -1 for how short it is but it's forgiven because the concept will live in my mind rent free, forever. 

Sorry if this is a rambly comment but I hope all of you creators know how amazing this is.

Hi! I think the game should be played directly in the browser on mac or pc (no phone or tablet) and I'm pretty sure Safari won't open it  😤
