Decided to pick up this game on a whim when I saw your tweet about it, and am glad I did. I decided to give it my first playthrough this morning, and it (plus nice music and candle as suggested) really put me in a relaxed frame of mind that made my writing just flow.
My time in the space was peaceful, reminding me of times long past, allowing me to put those memories to words in a new creative way. Several sights, smells, and sounds I experienced years ago returned anew, and it was so nice to have them return to me. There were moments where a touch of unease, fear, and uncertainty would creep up, but my choices felt organic and I wasn’t concerned. Perhaps another time I’ll make the other choices and see what places they take me to.
As a writer, I sometimes feel like I overthink things far too much, and I’m grateful your game gave me prompts to get out of my usual frame of mind. It was also a very meditative experience, I think. As it so happens, today is my mother’s birthday, and she passed away 10 years ago. I always like to commit myself to a creative project when this day comes about, to see what results, and I hope you know that your game was able to facilitate something that I’m proud of and that was able to bring me closer to memories and feelings I don’t always give myself room to consider.
Thank you for creating this. It was truly a lovely experience.
