Without it's endless distractions, what can you do against boredom? Not only that, but can you stay sane though these days when the future is so uncertain and fear is constantly knocking on your door?

I gotta say...This game is something. I guess this relates to this pandemic were facing and much relatable.

Day 237 in quarantine

This game is a wake up call for me and other people that is in quarantine and have a good message in the game.

It all felt very relatable and hard hitting, even after the quarantine has ended. The fact that without internet we are stripped down to 3 different activities which are essentially just time-killers, made me realize that I REALLY need to take up some kind of a hobby. My only gripe was the character getting spooked by the ghosts when reading the book, it felt pretty goofy and kinda took me away from the atmosphere that was created, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Loved it.

After I was leaving the beach I accidentaly hitted the switch and it just started floating upwards in a straight line. xD

Haha sorry, the minigame was, unfortunately, left unfinished. It'll be released as a stand alone project someday tho
