Short but nice. Well done :)
Very nice and charming game! What library and language did you make this in?
Thank you so much! The game was made using Game Maker 2, which has it's own language built into the engine
thank you so cool of a game i really enjoyed it :):):):):)
those words are so, so familiar. lovely game, short but its bittersweet💕
Thanks for making the game, I found it relatable!
Thought mf was busting a nut near the water
-Made a Video.
i never knew i needed this until now
Great game, the whole story is captivating and the gameplay is fair and balanced. Good job, dude.
Charming and cute, yet also very serious and real.
It really captures the feeling of zoning off into these sorts of thoughts.
Absolutely loved it.
Hey chef, you're doing great. Keep it up. Proud of you.
Nice little game, enjoyed it!
i guess you can say the game was pretty deep
get it? i know its bad
hella good and hit me hard, but it seemed so correct to how i feel, which i appreciate.
nice game :D but was there a change to survive drowning ?
Hello, I played this game and I liked it, it was a very short but sweet little game, good work :)
why can't i move after saying "take a dip" the avatar just crouches and stays in one place
Hey! Sorry, you need to hold down one of the buttons until the player jumps! I'll think up of a way to make it more clear in a patch!
made me depressed, because it hit me too close to my own experience.
the drowning part is something i feel everyday.
don't take it the wrong way, i'm not saying anything bad about the game, just made me feel bad cuz im currently fighting depression
dear game developer if u can make this type of game, i can tell you fighting something as well, i hope you find a way to not let it destroy you and beat it
Hey! Thanks so much for playing and also for sharing your experiences. Depression is a really difficult thing to live with and to overcome.
While I don't know your personal history with depression, I can at least tell you that - for me - after actively working on my depressive thoughts, it did get easier.
Please, stay strong!
I was so focused on the dialogue that I didn't even notice the hand. This was such a simple but beautiful game :]
Haha yeah that's what I was hoping would happen! Thank you so much for playing!
I love the hand only being noticeable after a while. Super creepy, good metaphor!
I'm glad to hear the and was effective! Thank you for playing and sharing your thoughts!
great job on the game! :)
Great atmosphere. I enjoyed it!
Really lovely game!
i liked it ! and i hope you enjoy my video about it as much as i rambled about my opinions in it :)
Ahhh thanks so much for playing and for making a video of my game!! I really loved your commentary and hearing your thoughts about the game :)
I loved the game, it's short but really good and i can relate to this,like i know how it feels having depression but over all its very good and love the art style it's so relaxing.
Thank you so much for the kind words and playing the game! I appreciate it a lot :) To hear that my work struck a cord with someone is really fulfilling, it's why I do game development
Hi forestherd, I played your game and found this experience so... relatable. This is almost exactly the thing that happens to me every time I have a drink with other people. So, thank you for sharing this experience and doing this in a videogame medium. This game is special somehow for me.
Show post...nice game
short, but really good, this game helped me to understand how depressed person feels, better. I think it's important to know, that it's not so simple to just get rid of depression. You have to fight with it every day, again and again. Also, love the style. Calming and beautiful.
