I was trying to remember what game this reminded me of, and then it hit me: Fran Bow. With the whole switching worlds thing, dialogue options, and combining items, this is almost exactly the same gameplay style as Fran Bow. However, the fact that this one is pixelated gives it an entirely different feel. Good job!

I am totally hooked! The universe is so strange and the gameplay great!

Amazing game! Great story, puzzles, and atmosphere. My only problem is that some of the puzzles are a little too hard, combined with the fact that there is no walkthrough. Other than that, I have no problems with this game other than some minor glitches.

i loved this type of games,good job!

This is so good!! the fact that it had some puzzle pixelated and suspense and drama it builds up everything even ridiculousness it has everything except for horror so i'll give it 4.5 stars. but other than that great job!!
