Can you try to support your Chinese version and mobile version at the same time? I really like your game! But I am Chinese, I am not familiar with English, and I don't have a computer to open games. Thank you!!!🥺

i really love your games, this one is super cute and creative,  though i don't quite get the plot, or perhaps it's just because i didn't turn on the sound while i was playing, anyway, i think it might be a sad story but i really need an explanation :(

and i really LOVE your games, so please make more

I absolutely LOVE your games. You should TOTALLY make more. I just got into this website, and some of your games are like finding diamonds in a goldmine. Completely unexpected, but beautiful nonetheless. You should  make more of your stalker games. You are great at thinking of ideas, and your use of audio is on point. 

I play on a phone, how do I start the game?

this game is so cute ;(

it was fun trying to figure out what he was saying but in the run away ending i was just like "Bird bird no no bird go back bIRD I HEAR CARS BIRD NONONONONONO"

I had the runaway ending but i didn't get any sound...

That was really heartfelt and beautiful I feel like wiping a tear from my eye like an old person that just watched an emotional movie.

Parental figures have that sixth sense sometimes :(

oh I went into it expecting really cutting angst (and maybe I just made choices where that didn't happen) but that was so SWEET my H E A R T. Gosh I love the use of visuals in this game, I can't even explain. I feel seen. Just. 10/10. I love this.

Very glad you enjoyed it! And much thanks for the kind comment.

I love this game! You should make a longer version!

(+1)

That's about the nicest thing any player could request. Thank you! I probably won't expand this one, but you might see other games with a similar mechanic in the future... ;)

Interesting concept and effective use of the interface. The ambiguous nature of some of the symbols are a nice touch too.

(+1)

Thanks so much! :D Hopefully I toed the line of being ambiguous without being too frustrating.

That was great! Really loved the non-verbal dialogue and the options the player is given. Bird is an interesting character and I'd like to know more about his backstory, his relationship with Tye, and the reason for his mutism.

Glad you enjoyed and thanks so much for your detailed feedback! Ty is a main character in two of my other games (So Your Crew & DJ) if you're dying for more of him... No other Bird yet, alas :P

Is DJ still avalible to play? I don't see it anywhere
