The game is pretty simple and straightforward imo, to be true to yourself. Although the introduction seemed rushed, I get the gist of everything and can properly tell what makes Cathy a person she is now. It's nice.

Great one!

Thanks! It was meant to be simple and straightforward since I made it during a weekend hackathon and game jam, but I'm glad people seem to still generally enjoy regardless! 

It would be a bit rushing in the interaction with brief plot, nonchalantly it is a good introduction or glimpse of the original work (just 4 days in the making!)^^

Thank you so much! And yeah, it does rush a little bit but I wanted to finish it within the timespan of a Hackathon that I also started working on it for. It really helped me learn more about making visual novels though, and I had a ton of fun!
