Pixelated animals again. No need to guess what to expect. Another half-assed attempt at being thought provoking, only this time the tricks used to get the point across were even cheaper.

Just don't bother.

I honestly don't see much sense in this game. I get that the game is expounding on some metaphor about the world today and the life of certain people. After taking care of several customers, I finally stared at the mirror and got the metaphor with the change in color and stuff. But the point is that this doesn't warrant a game. I think it fits more as a short film than a game.

Don't get me wrong though. The low score is not because it doesn't have a touching metaphorical narrative but because this does not suit the environment of a game.

I give one star for the effort in the ideas and pixel art and another star for the great sound choice. I can't give anything more sadly.

I just can't connect with the message (which is pretty much the whole point of an art game like this). The game made her situation look about as demoralizing and monotonous as working at Mickey D's in a dead-end job to make ends meet with a boss barking at you to serve more customers and smile while you're doing it. I'm not saying IRL prostitution is just like taking fast food orders, but that's how it came across here.

...rather boring, if you don't connect with the story really well. I can tell that the story is meaningful in some fashion, it gets repetitive with no sense of a final act or point in the game. If there was some story behind this, I would be interested. However, with the little input you have, and uninteresting gameplay, I couldn't play very long before stopping.
