I want to play this is game


One final moment of peace before the inevitable "blackness" comes:( Was a great play though. So many emotions in such a short amount of time!


They tried to silence the outside world with the little peace they tried to establish between each other. This left me with an amplified depression. GREAT

Why does it have to be so sad? T_T

Honestly the sheer impression this game left on me was astounding. Absolutely incredible how you managed to invoke so much in just three minutes. A full-fledged experience well worth anyone's time.

Well that was a bit sad


Wait, did the door break down from the storm or was there a person there? Also, this guy has no sportsmanship—he covered my hand!


soilder knocking on the door, my guess, he opened fire the second he kicked the door open killing both you and the old man

I thought it was bizarre when it was raining frogs but missiles really blow that out of the water

w-oah my bazinga

this is cool :D




played this game because i thought it's funny that this will be my last game before i go to bed, turns out it's not something to be laughed at


i was so close-


i feel offended that i didnt win tho- 

he stopped me-


I was not expecting this at all!! I am on the brink of tears, this is so simplistic, so short yet so beautiful.


This was an expirience...


This is... haunting. Beautiful.


Beautiful. The surreal beauty of two people, in their final moments. What an experience! 


My man really holding my hand and giving me a dung eater grin after he stops me from winning.


wow, genuinely terrifying. legit jumped at the first *BOOM*. this is a very nice game. it's simplistic yet tells a story you're immediately invested in. the intimacy (i'm not sure if that's the right word but) of two friends playing one last game while the world falls apart around them… it leaves me with a feeling that's both cold and warm.


wonderful game, a very short experience, but satisfying


wow, i felt so many emotions. definitely one of my favorite visual novels out there. 


me: i just want to play a little game

bombs: NO


I'm just glad these people got to spend their last moments together,  a very bittersweet psychological horror.

A 10/10 in my book

Wow, realmente increíble

... esto fue realmente una experiencia inusual y de alguna manera me dio pesadillas 

un juego increible con tan poco

No puedo describir la tensión que me hizo sentir, y la calma y tristeza que me dio al final



que es este sentimiento?

De lo mejor que he jugado en mucho tiempo. Transmite muy bien el sentimiento. (También conocí este juego por Alva Majo)

Una gran experiencia! (vine por Alva Majo)


This... Oh god

loved it a lot!

just perfect

loved it. so simple yet so devastating.
