If you want to make a game without giving instructions, you should make it intuitive. This is not intuitive. For example, you gave a ticking clock and a calendar, but does it have any purpose? This looks like a "sim", a game restricted with time that probably have ending based on player's actions. Nothing of such kind I saw. The clients wait endlessly, the time or story doesn't seem to progress. I just got bored and turned it off.

Sure, the concept is interesting and the look is nice (besides clients, gosh, at least give them some shade), but besides this, there is really nothing more.

The music is cool, but soooo misleading. It gives premise for something touching and emotional, but the game quickly turns into a snorefest without any goal. Seriously, if there is something to do in this game, some kind of goal or a conclusion, then please, delete my review, let me know and I will play this game again only to give it a score it deserves. Believe me, I ADORE artsy flash games that are made primarily to squeeze tears and this looked like one of them.

Kudos for making a real pixel art and the transition from one music to another.

I just registered to say that the people who don't understand this game shouldn't rate it... Its not a regular game, its different to all the kind of games of this page.

The goal of the game is unclear. The diary, which seems to be the only valuable thing in the room to the player, is unreadable. The game is literally just kill time, be a prostitute for five seconds, kill more time. Not to mention that this is bestiality. Your actions also seem to mean nothing; there's no way to progress or do better or worse in the game. It's just a scripted loop.

It's ok. Just like the other comments the diary is soooooooo hard to read (It's look like you write it, not using some 8-bits font), the story is unclear ; she's a prostitute, work her ass off to pat debt, no one there for her... LOVE the music by the way. I'm confused the part in the diary; who wrote it? her husband? her daughter/son? herself?

I didn't really like it... I liked the art and the music, as well as the way in which the dread and bleakness of that routine was portrayed.... But there isn't really much else to it. The key seems to be the diary, which is unreadable at many points. I understand the idea of decay and the perk of some missing or broken words, but it was excessive. I didn't get the point of using the make-up (or not using it) either.
