Very interesting and well-executed! The Death design is so unusual-looking and I liked it. I would have liked it to collapse the dialogue a little more on repeat runs--free-response puzzles can be hard, and it's frustrating to have to click through all the dialogue again because you misspelled a name or something.

Thanks! Fair enough — though you can use the skip button (Control in the desktop app) to skip text you've already seen. :)

You created such an interesting game, the game design feels unique to a lot of other VN's, especially when combined with the restrictions of the game jam. I loved the experience of gathering new memories / fragments of our life that would help us progress through death's questions.

You really did a great job, I'm excited for your next games!

Thanks for playing! Wish I had more time to develop the concept a little, but I guess that's just the nature of a jam! Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Oh! The game design was really good and made clever use of the jam restrictions! The death had an interesting character design!

It's a bit complicated to talk about the game without spoiling, especially since it's a mystery game, but it was interesting to solve, the overall story is interesting and I enjoyed interpreting the... things we're given to find the answers! Excellent game!

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it! :)

Really great concept and intriguing story, but we got stuck trying to answer the final question. We used the guide (after thinking we got it wrong), but the answer didn't work.

Thanks! Sorry about that — I updated the code a few days ago without testing it thoroughly which broke some of the answers. It's fixed now. :)
