This was a masterpiece, i loved every second of it

your game starts at 12:45

Beautiful game. I like how it feels both alien and deeply human at the same time, especially those nubbly tree-lings growing out from the chopped off stumps. This game feels the same way as they look to me, an open wound never really healing, but slowly becoming overgrown by something new and different.

here's my little sand garden.

i plan on playing this game when my grandma and nana pass. great game, though it did make me cry. but, i think that adds to the value. <3

This is a perfectly beautiful game.

She won't make it much longer. We all know it. Mom seems so stressed when we see her, and everytime we can't

This game made me cry, my great grandma had a stroke which caused her to lose her memories.. this game is beautiful with an amazing art style.

What I really enjoyed the most about this game is the relaxing music, the beautiful artystyle, and overall the  calm ambience

Bonus:
One bone got stuck on my hand lolol but here's my work of art

What a beautiful, enigmatic game. This captures something beautiful about how we remember and grieve without belittling or romanticizing it. I really love this.

Coming from someone whose grandfather had dementia, I appreciate this one. Pleasantly melancholy experience. Like how it starts as a simple fishing game and turns into something more introspective.

So so so pretty! beautiful game that touches on harder subjects that many people similarly experience.

this was a beautiful game <3

what a gorgeous little game. phenomenal work!

the art is phenomenal! what program did u use?

Thank you! I used the tools Photoshop has for doing pixel art (so really any program that allows working in pixel art would work the same). I really enjoy doing this MS Paint-style workflow for gamejams as it makes working/exporting assets so much faster C:

love the artwork!

what a beautiful way of representing loss. the art style of this game was what pulled me in at first sight, such calming, melancholic and magical colors... very peaceful yet thoughtful and heart breaking. dementia, as fear and sorrow inducing as it is persists in inspiring the most beautiful of art, thank you for making this :)

An absolutely lovely little game with a great atmosphere, ambience, and story to tell. Wasn't what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it regardless.  Thank you for the lovely game! 

noice chill game 

<3

wut how to play?

To play you click on the character and they cast their fishing rod. Wait for a while and you'll start to hear some noise and see the fishing rod move. To successfully fish you need to wait till a different audio cue happens and the icon of the mouse has one button turn black. There are also some things like flowers, mushrooms, leaves, and spikes that you can place with the bones on the gray patch of mud. I personally love decorating the bones or laying the bones on these materials.

As someone whose own grandparent is suffering from dementia, this game really moved me.

This is a beautiful game. The art was well done and the story was very poetic.

Is it possible for me to get the music pdf? It鈥檚 great

i cried a little. this is beautiful.

A lovely game. I don't have anything else to say besides what's already been said in the comments. It's well worth anyone's time.

I played it twice in honor of a couple people. Short, contemplative, and the art and music were great. A touching little grief ritual.
