Up to approach, down to move back, left and right to move around.

Inspired by Ludum Dare 23 48-hr Game compo. The theme was "Tiny World."
A abstract puzzle game about the complications of trying to get close to someone.

bug fix: fixed getting through obstacles if you rapidly pressed a button


Ok is it weird that the guy looks like me and the girl looks like the girl I like

Wow! Really, I rarely add any game to my favorites, but I can't just ignore this masterpiece.
Is there any way to download the music? Its just so pretty and I cant find it anywhere.

Wow , great game :3 I enjoyed playing it
And yes , the beeping sounds were pretty annoying
But it was super sweet :)

Super awesome game. Kind of short, but it's to be expected from a Ludum Dare game. In fact, for a Ludum Dare game this had surprisingly good graphics. The story was told pretty smoothly as well, the message in it was understandable even when the game didn't tell you directly what it meant, like how near the end it became easier to obtain the hearts, so it gets easier to get closer. That's a feature that'll score you a ton of points in games, no matter how simple the story is. The music was good, fit extremely well into the game.

One complaint though, the controls get a little messy. When you have a game that involves circular motion such as this one, you gotta make sure that the controls get switched whenever you're up at the top of the circle (down makes you go down instead of up when you're at the top of the circle, left makes you go right, etc.) and this made the "impossible level" almost literally impossible for me. But great job, I'd love to see more of your work. If this is what you can do in 48 hours, I'd like to see what you can do in a month!

So good to see this sort of games still existing, they are so special. Give us fun and making us think about life, almost without noticing. This one is simply beautiful, and the music in it...
I play it in short times though, because all this spinning world gets me dizzy after a while. ^_^
Thanks, authors.
