A very short experimental game. I'd love to have your feedback... Thanks for playing!

Refreshing... and a possible happy end for all

*spoiler alert*
I actually mentioned to get both boy and girl with a love sign above their head.

First create the 'I am your moon ending' by switching boy and girl
Than move the girl to the boat
(in between the 'seagull trip ending' is possible (obvious how to get that)
Than the 'lost love ending' for temporary sadness (just sit back)
Than give the boy what he wants and both sit happily on the boat ;)

I found them all!

I found all the endings and they were a tad unexpected, it was sweet and fun at the same time... good job :)

Charming game.

Couldn't manage to find one ending. It was sweet and short but in the end didn't feel like a game. Definitely enjoyable though.

I don't know who Italo Calvino is, I guess I'll have to go look him up. But this game was beautiful and sweet, I enjoyed it very much! It has out standing potential, please consider expanding it. It could use a loading screen, just for polish, and some sort of special "all endings found" screen or event or animation or something. If this is based on a poem or a song, it would be awesome if you could include it in the game somehow, so we'd have the context. Ambient sound effects would be nice too- like the sound of the water.
