Hello. This game is buggier than the wet soil under a rock but I love, love, love it!! I think I have an idea of what the story is, kind of, but you clearly want people to inerpret the meaning on their own so I'll keep my mouth shut.


Also, HOW did you get Unity to do weird, sort of frame thingies like that ?!

I love the way everything is presented, the MOOD is awfully great and the story is as cryptic as it is interesting. But ive had some serious issues with control... The character constantly wants to go front-left, only countersteered by going back-right but that then moves you very slowly. Aswell as pressing space being incredibly unreliable, mashing it to get any progress.

Overall, amazing entry! Despite the control problems that plagued me.

cool style.

how do i turn/look around?? also very pretty game!!

mouse movements to look, wasd to move, space to interact! thanks and enjoy!

oh okay!! thank you!!!

A very novel way to present stories in a videogame.

This was a really cool set of vignettes. I had no idea Unity could do rendering like that. This has to be one of the most visually creative games I've played.

thanks! i didnt know it could do it either, its still super janky but im looking into how to fix it

When I run the executable, the game appears on a corner of my screen and I can't move the window.

as it should, carry on!

This game is pretty interesting, i suppose the bandit claimed he burned the samurai in his home and then murdered the lady, the shogun claimed the bandit robbed the lady, he shot the bandit and burned down his house, and the lady i just didnt understand at all

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?

There need to be a lot of fixes, and some clearing up of the story, i just couldnt assemble it quick enough during the jam

Good, I will wait for the next update then.


Impressive tech, puzzling plot. 1st game in the video
