A perfect VN for this Halloween season, All the characters are really cute (My favorite is the blue monster) and it has some interesting background art to keep things spooky, as well as a nice mystery to solve that, without spoiling anything, has a few nice twists to it.

It may be just me but I feel the music does not really go that well with the game but is understandable given this is a free indie game made for a Gamejam, and it's definitely better than no music at all.

Also the story although interesting gets a little bit...confusing? like there is a lot of things happening at the same time? it may just be me being dumb, please don't mind me. It is still a pretty solid VN with a good ending.

Keep the good work!

Thanks for the kind feedback and video:D

at least on mine, mac versions need to be its own zip file and never work when in the same zip as the other versions. i think it still might work through the itch.io app, excited to play this !!

Oh! Thanks for the info. I'll upload a separate file for mac.

thank you!!

This was very cute and I'm in love with the character designs :3 I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil anything, but I wasn't expecting what happened at the end, so that was a really cool surprise! The CG is gorgeous too! I didn't get it on my first go, so I went through again to pick some different choices, and I got it the second time around :D
