Bought it on switch but I found the pricing overpriced there compared to here... It was so short, more like a demo for a much larger project.

I think so too, I wanted it to be a free game or very low price since it is an experimental game, but I was told it is the smallest number they can put on a game as a price (as I was told by the publisher)

I am still so deeply in love with the vibe here

played this on switch, super cute game! I love the animations and the way your character moves is just so beautiful. I would love to see this developed into a bigger game with more stories lines, chapters and character backstory

just played this and, honestly, i cried a little. this is such a peaceful, hopeful game. here's to all the astronomical queer nerds out there <3 what a lovely game

another person who bought this on switch and is super confused - is this only meant to be the one scene? After the comet it went back to the title screen and that single scene started again? 

Hello, sorry for any misunderstanding about that game, It should've been specified in the switch game description that it is a small game (I myself clarify this on this page). "This small experimental game I did in two weeks.  It is inspired by warm gatherings with friends, fear of losing them and stupid conversations."

I love the art style and the premise so much, but I'm confused - is this game genuinely only a couple of minutes long, or is the Switch download glitching? I'm so disappointed that it takes me straight back to the start so soon. I was expecting more of an interactive story.

Hello! Sorry for any misunderstanding, it should've been specified in the description on switch that it is a small game (as I've done on this game page). I also clarified why this game is a small game (it is and experimental game done in two weeks, and everyone can get it here for free or for a small donation)

Hey! The game looks really really lovely, and I'd love to play it but I'm on mac and running into a problem of it's telling me I don't have permission to open the app. I've checked to make sure I do, and redownloaded it, but it hasn't fixed it. If there's anything you know about this that would be great since I'd love to have this game on my computer, but I can also get it on switch so it's not too big a deal!

Some apps have trouble executing on mac due to the safe settings, sometime this helped for me:

I just played this on Switch, and I'm sorry, but I had to ask, is it really just this one scene? I partly ask because this setup really interests me, but I finished it in maybe 5 minutes and it felt like all I'd played was the intro to a larger game. I reach the arrival of Haley's Comet and then it just goes back to the start again. I just want to make sure my game isn't glitched or something.

If it is just this one scene, that is ok imo, I just hope you don't get any flack over the price on Switch, as I know some make too big of a deal over things like that.

I came here to ask this same question. I'm unsure if I'm doing something wrong, the switch version is buggy or if it really is this short?

I am sorry for any misunderstanding, it should've been specified in the description on switch that it is a small game (as I've done on this game page). And at first I hoped this game will be free (like here on PC). But unfortunately you can't post free games on Switch, and the publisher I work with set up the lowest price possible :) I also clarified why this game is a small game (it is and experimental game done in two weeks, and everyone can get it here for free or for a small donation) I was hoping to expand the universe but now I am working on another big scale game :)

thank you for the reply

This sounds completely understandable. I do wish Nintendo would allow games to be marked free or at least lower priced, and I certainly hope you don’t get much grief over it. I would love to see more of this if you ever do go back to it, and I hope your new project goes well.

A little late to the party, found this game and saw people were making a video on it. Thought, "Might as well!" Honestly really hoping to see more stuff like this in the future.

Haven't played this yet; saw it on the Switch store and I'm gonna play it on release, but I wanna say thank you for making this game.

This game is super cute! As an asexual enby, short and sweet stories like this about finding a circle of good friends remind me of better times and the world could use more of them.

Thank you very much! You pronounced my name right :D Also! You have a great voice! Thank you for the video

A very cute and sweet little experience, the characters were all cute and well designed and I loved the hand painted/ water painted / sketched look of the environment and characters. And the music was absolutely lovely. Thank you for making this!

Thank you very much!!! I'm happy that you liked the game :)
