After completing this game, I am so emotional. Really cute game and a very sweet game too. This game was short, consisting with magic.
Stories regarding friendship, magic and overcoming your fears will always have soft spot in my heart and this little game really hit all the marks!!! It was short, it was sweet and it was comforting. The art was really cute and fit well with the game. Loved it and thanks for making it!!! <3
Finishing this game, the first and foremost thought is, god I love stories like this. Stories of friendships that sprout from helping one another through struggles and in opposition to the notion of othering. The story is really sweet, and I'm really glad to have gone through it.
Then, an inch away from foremost prominence, my mind really can't help but think "a sequel to this would simply be fantastic", though I can only imagine that there are issues involved in doing such a thing, so. As it is, this story is really wonderful. It's a perfect standalone experience!! So, whether or not a sequel is an idea that could sprout or not, this leaves a lot to the imagination for the future...
The emphasis in the soundtrack on melodic percussion (or at least, my brain focusing in on it and reacting to it) is really wonderful too, though that's probably a personal bias. What I mean is, I'm glad one of the characters is named "Chime". It's a beautiful instrument, and, as sort of a dorky extrapolation, chimes certainly add a lot to a mystical and wonderful atmosphere, so... I mean. Just in general, the soundtrack is wonderful!!
That's all to say, thank you for making this game!! It's really sweet, and I'm glad it has such a positive message and outlook. Experiences like this are simply fantastic!!!!!!
obviously the witch right?
This was a fun and a cute short game. I loved the message it told as it could be interpreted differently to people going through different situations. Love from Ethiopia ❤️
The game is really cute so far! I love the atmosphere and the cute characters.
However, for some reason I'm struggling to prepare Lilac's part of the potion... I can't figure out how to cut the vegetables.
Does anyone else know how?
dey gay 10/10
this game is super cute!! i loved it so much and i really enjoyed the little cat chase
The Linux version does not seem to work for me on Mint 20.2 Cinnamon 64-bit. After unzipping, and adjusting the permission to allow "Game.desktop" to run as a program, I tried running "./Game.desktop" in the terminal and got the following error:
./Game.desktop: line 1: [Desktop: command not found
./Game.desktop: line 3: -c: command not found
Does anyone know how to work around this issue? All other NPCKC games I've tried work. I think I'm just going to play the Android version on my phone.
EDIT: I have now completed the game on my phone and I loved the ending!
hi, sorry for the issue! would you please try launching the game via nw instead of game.desktop?
Ahhhhh so fricking cute! The music, their walking animations, and I especially love when Lilac's sprite is confused or shocked. It's adorable. I didn't know if Chime's name was pronounced as just 'Chime' or 'She-may' but I went with the second option since it was cuter lol. 10/10. Pity it was short tho.
I was really excited to play this, but it won't open...
have you tried extracting all files, then running the application?
also u might wanna make sure u downloaded the proper version for your platform :>
yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yse yes yes this was so cute i love it yes

As a HSP with depression an anxiety, I loved this game. It's so sweet. It made me feel calm and warmed my heart. Thank you for making it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the game, the cute art style and the awesome soundtrack. Had fun with the game :)
I really enjoyed the story and the characters are so sweet! 🥰
I wasn't able to open it on mac :
What the hell? I try to play the game and this happens:
this is an issue with your system (mac) and not the game. you have the game in a folderpath that does not allow writing (saving) so please try moving it to a different folder before playing.
A very sweet game. The music was so soothing! Plus some truly cute art, and a cat chase! I'm soft uwu

"beautiful, i love it."
Would be nice if Mac developers would specify if their games are 32 bit or 64 bit. Just bought this game and didn't find out until after I paid for it that I can't play it because it's 32 bit. It's hard enough to find games for Mac anyway.
Really cute and simple! I like it!
cried at the end... and i love the lessons in the themes i could see.
a very sweet game i enjoyed as a halloween treat. thank you for sharing. <3
This was adorable, thank you <3
So cute <3
Glad everything worked out, the ending was so sweet~
I'm not crying, you're crying.... T_T what a beautiful game
So cute and calming, thank you for this
Very cute game!
hi! i'm trying to play this game on my mac but i keep on getting an error on the language selection page. i'm not sure if this is something from my computer or an in-game thing, so could you please help? thank you
this is usually an error that occurs because of where you have saved the app - the location seems to be read-only, so the game can't save. please try moving it to another location or checking the permissions of the specified file.
this is very cute and heart-warming! There is no sad scene in this game but i feel sad for no reason after finishing the game ;-;
very sweet ending :)
Is lilac and her light offline game?
mistook this for "her tears were my light" but im happy i ended up here
