I debated about uploading this one. Some of these feelings are years old... but a lot of them I hadn't really properly vented.

I'm doing fine, I swear. I just felt like this is what I needed to express at this moment.

This is hands down one of the best things I have played. Being a indie developer also, with big dreams and goals, I know exactly where you are coming from.. this game actually damn near made me tear up because I related to it so well. This was just. my god. I love it. thank you so much for making this.

It is definitely a small, minimal game, but it expresses how you feel and what you are struggling with. Not too many games can do this accurately. It was very interesting to play, and I am glad you were able to get off your chest.

I see in your description that you are getting better, and I am glad of that.

Even the end gives the feeling of this being an almost endless cycle for you. This endless cycle of critiquing yourself and wanting to make something you see as "great" and not having the life you want is the basis of this game. Just like the way this game is, the only way you can stop the cycle is to stop "Playing". Walk away for a while, take a break, look at what's going on around you. Take a walk, get inspiration from nature or your city/town.

Anyway, that being said, I do like your game. I think it describes your struggle in a way that we can all see, and I am glad you are working on/have been getting through that.

This is really cool, normally when a game does the repeating thing it feels lazy to me but in this case it works really well with the message of the game.
