i really enjoyed this game. gave me the feels!

What did you make this in?

It's made in RPG Maker MV

Looked like VX Ace to me due to the screenshot size.

"Perdita" is quite funny name if you speak Russian ^_^

"not available on windows"...will this change any time soon?

Oh, it is available, it seems I had forgotten to set the windows tag on. Sorry about that!

oh, cool. will check it out when i get home

wow...just finished playing through and...just, wow.

I loved the  game. The piano music was amazing, but what I love the most was the message that this game gives to the players. Incredible.

Thank you so much! :)

I didn't realize you could go past the lightpost at the bottom of the screen toward the end so kept trying to get her to follow me around to the back of the house to confront her demons with the papers! Silly me. Loved the game <3 

really good game :)

Thanks for playing! :3 I'm glad that you liked it ^_^

Featured in my mini review series (timestamped).

Awesome! Thanks!

i found the Game sure has alot of Lag in it

There was no problems on my side. Maybe your pc can't handle it?

*Rurr* Hello everyone, I made a Let's Play on this game, although I had to make it a two-part series because I was SLOW and felt like I was dying conveniently while recording! Fun times!

Annnd the finale!

Awesome! Thank you for playing! :)

The game is outstading! Short but really meaningful .

I'm glad that you liked it! :) Thanks for playing!


A truly exceptional experience to say the least,  going in I wasn't sure what to expect from the game but I was met with an emotional story and an unsettling atmosphere that pulled me in and had me enthralled. I loved the use of color to highlight important objects in the environment while still retaining the colorless aesthetic you're striving for. 

The game tackles some pretty dark themes but I feel that it's done it in a manner that is respectable. It tells a scary story that some people today are sadly faced with, but few people truly understand.

All in all I enjoyed the game, it was really well done and I can tell a lot of time and love was put into it. I hope you don't mind, but I made a let's play of your game on my channel.

Cheers and have a good day!

Thank you so much for playing my game! I'm glad that you liked it! <3 It's totally fine to make videos of my games, and if you liked this one, you might also like a game called Traum, a game I work on with  a team, it's demo is here on itch.io ;) 

Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish. If it doesn't bother you, of course.

PD: Great job with this game, I love it.

Thank you for the kind words! I'm afraid that I don't know any Spanish so I can't translate it. sorry!

Oh, don't apologize. I would have liked me to translate this game, as it touches on a theme, but if it's not possible, it won't be. xd. 

I really really like this game!  The story kept you interested and the design was really cool.  Job well done!!!

Glad you liked it! ^^

May I make YT video from your game?

Of course! Go right ahead! ^^ Post a link to the video for me when it's ready :D

I love this game! But I came across a problem when I was trying to run from "Mother" in the end. It took too long to turn, so I couldn't walk around the lamp post by the fence fast enough to get away. I've been trying to figure out this part for 15 minutes now, so i'm kind of stuck.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. You don't need to walk around the lamp post by the fence. You need to run down, away from her. Either that or you don't have sync monitor fps on, because that screws up events timing and stuff.

Oh god i'm sorry I just realized I wasn't dashing, this is my first time playing a game made in this engine so I didn't know you could do that.
