Loved it 💌 Also that color palette is amazing!
A truly wholesome and relaxing game :)
aww that was precious... i love the ending aha
I Honestly got Invested in this Game And Hope to See More
I enjoyed it a lot! I love the expression by screen-shake and, particularly, phone-shake. It made me imagine mom to be very assertive, despite her having no written text. Impressive how well the very minimal interface works within the story!
I expected some sad turn but it subverted this expectation nicely, while still having emotional depth.
Two minor usability problems I had:
- The language selector caused me minor trouble. I though I need to click the language as a link and thats it, but it is a selection and I need to click the "okay" afterwards
- I needed some time until I understood the zipper, I first thought it is a pen. As these things are, after understanding it, it felt natural as it was.
that was the most wholesome thing I played today I love it so much.
Wow, that experience was truly touching! I was expecting a twist of sadness at every turn, but instead, it overflowed with heartwarming moments. Your ability to convey an entire life's story with just a few bandages is absolutely astounding. Such incredible storytelling and emotional depth. Bravo! 😢🌟
I loved this! The story almost had me in tears. I tried to guess what the mom was saying.
Here's my playthrough if anyone is interested:
Too many words for me..
So short and poignant! I loved it!!
"MOM IT'S NOT TAPE IT'S BANDAGES"
Not me crying bc its so good :>
I liked it a lot. Sort of wish I knew what the mom was saying.
Your games never dissapoint <3. I am always impressed how you are able to show deep, complex stories in such short form. I really see my own mum in this game, she once travelled half of the Poland with heavy bag full of potatoes so she can give them to my sister. She always send me bread via post like she was not sure if there is any bakery in one of the biggest cities in our country :D.
Ngl I thought the mom would die or smth （πーπ）
It was all very wholesome though :D
I want to have my mom play this lol I love it.
Nice slice of life short game ❤️
Really cute :D
what a heartwarming game!!! I like how just a box of bandages can have a deep, cute story behind it, literally sobbing ;w;
this is so adorable <3
This reminded me of me and my mother's relationship. She would definitely send me off with bandages (even if I didn't need any). It made me smile.
Thanks for making this cute game!
that last line was so cute. it might not be something I can relate to or understand all that well but its still such a cute game
Omg I'm crying, this was so beautiful T_T
I love how it's minimalistic yet the story is deep and heartwarming. The fact that you didn't need to show what the Mom was saying either because it could be inferred from MC's words is so clever!! I really love your storytelling <3
I'm not very close with my mom... but this story made me feel what it'd be like. Thank you for making such a beautiful game!!
this game and story is so cute
Oh my gosh, this made me cry. What a wonderful story you created, kc. It's really something, like all of your stories. Great job <3
tape through the ages.
a wholesome hetero story.
why did thid made me cry ;^;
I started just playing random itch.io games but by the end, I was genuinely invested in this story, amazing game 11/10
This was lovely! The clean lines and bright colors of the art really aligns with the episodic nature of the story. I've always liked the snapshots over time format and this is a wonderful execution of it. You say so much about the complexity of mother-daughter relationships with the simple one-sided conversations in this game.
I got so scared at the end every time more time passed that the mom was going to die
That was really sweet, in all its simplicity it managed to tell a really cute story. The last phrase actually got me, heh, loved it~
Cute and lovely ❤
Cute story. A creative one.
hi the game was simple and fun ,great work i made new game (bvb-guess ) too if want check my game and tell any bug or new things that i can add to it ,thank you
We don't know what Mom said, as a result, it feels like it could be our story.
that was a cute, quaint and tender story. I got Florence vibes. The journey from childhood to adulthood then parenthood was sweet.
