You've found yourself in an unfamiliar neighborhood. It seems empty—why don't you walk around and see if there's anyone left?

Move with the arrows, talk with X, Z to open the book.

This is a little game I've been tinkering with for... checks watch almost seven years. It's not a huge game - I only managed to work on it for a few hours each year. It's less a game and more a weird little vehicle for some writing and ideas I've had in my head for a good long time.

I might make some tweaks to it (are the voices annoying? Should I change them? Remove them?), so any feedback is appreciated. :)

I had to minify the code to publish it (using https://github.com/thisismypassport/shrinko8)—turns out all those strings take up a lot of space!

This was a delightful, cozy little game! Love the little stories you built around this collection of quotes and how the sun sets as you progress through the game. Great character designs, too C:

This is so beautiful. The writing is fantastic and all of the characters and stories are soooo creative. I have to admit, I teared up a little at some of the dialogue haha. Amazing job!

Excellent writing. A very interesting exploration of other people's existential thoughts.

Was really a fun little experience. Fun may be the wrong word but a cozy little experience. Thank you for sharing.

This was an absolute treat to play.

Didn't expect to feel so much in a pico8 game.
