HEY!  Why haven't I played this yet?!  I'll play it ASAP!

Enjoyed the writing and how the scenes were presented. Made me want to learn more about Aari and her planet(i think thats how u spell her name lol). Though I think the romanitc aspect was a bit rushed, I liked this <333

So glad you enjoyed it, and good job on the spelling for my made-up alien name haha. Thanks for your feedback, it makes me want to write a continuation of the true ending where they can learn more about each other in person instead of memories.

Loved this one! The art style is so cohesive I've been immersed since pressing Start. I guess the good and true endings are related to points gotten from picking the right card, but is the first choice relevant too?

Anyway, I think I got all endings. It would be nice to have a counter somewhere in case one or more get missed! I'm also a bit sad there was no music throughout the game, despite there being sound effects. It would help the already stellar atmosphere.
Thank you so much for your game!

Thank you very much for playing! I'm really glad you enjoyed our game :) Btw the first choice doesn't affect the endings, I was just trying to hint to the players that observing and cooperating will help you succeed. 

And thanks for the feedback about the music, we are working to add some in soon!

I just finished it. And I got the "Off together". The bestest, right?   

i love the artstyle. Very aesthetic. Background, sprites - everything is so beautiful.   And the sprites have animated antennaes in few scenes. 

i love sci-fi. good plot and writing. cute alien girls. emotions are strongers than science and interracial differences. 

 ❤❤❤❤

Yep, Off together is the bestest ending. :D Congrats!

Also, thank you very much for playing. ❤❤❤

this was really cool! i love how the art & ui look. i'm not sure if i got the true end or good end but i'm happy with the ending i got.

Thanks for playing and glad you enjoyed! Btw the good end is "Solo Return" and the true end is "Off Together". 

Super cool, I don't think I've seen a sci-fi yuri game before. I like the concept a lot, and the communication system is really interesting. The colour scheme looks fantastic, really sells the whole “alien” thing.

(Vague Spoilers:
I liked the twist in the true ending! I could guess what the experiments were for but I didn't realize what effect they'd already had. I wonder what exactly Aari experienced and what she lost.)

Two small text issues I noticed: “I can hear voices filtering in from the nurtrient room” (rather than “nutrient”) and “Aari smiles” being in quotation marks rather than narration.

Also, I didn't realize the game had any sound, and my volume was turned up pretty high, so the door noise scared the heck out of me, lol. Maybe if there were menu noises or there was a quick note about it I wouldn't have been so surprised, just thought I'd let you know.

Thank you very much for playing the game! *bow

Also thank you for noticing the typo. We'll fix them right away.

And, whew, really sorry the sound scared you. >_< We gotta add some sort of ambience so people at least realized there's sound in the game.

Again, thank you very much! :D
