This was a beautiful game; the style was so nice and matched the tone and ambience of the game so well. The sound design was really great and set the tone at the start and end which was a great contrast and really made the player feel like they're in that situation. It was super great to play and was very resonating, really great job on it!

 I enjoyed this game very much! I found the style beautiful and the story was very interesting. It definitely is a unique ghost story. overall I give this game a 10/10.

Although short, I loved it.  Such a good ghost story concept and the ending was 10/10 beautiful.

This was an extremely short and slow game, I feel there could've been more dialogue. It would have been interesting to see how the protagonist felt about their marriage through comments, monologues, or short stories but, this was quick and to the point. I like that I didn't even realize it was about a ghost until the end though. Good job on the art and music as well.

Short and sad story. I felt so bad about the husband but he did try everything he could to reach out with his wife. Awesome game!

A clear recommendation for anyone who likes bizarre or storydriven games.

Such a sad story! Loved the game though and kind of a cool mechanic to actually be the one manipulating the haunt. Well done!

The game was pretty cool and sad at the same time...

Btw, here is my video. I'm a brazilia guy who likes to play some random horror games (gameplay in portuguese).

Thank-you guys for the game, opportunity and unique experience :)

This was such a cool game. I was in love with the pixel style that was just the right amount. I would have loved more "puzzles" but I really enjoyed this for what it was.

You created an amazing story told with a minimal graphical style. Great job. Keep it up!

Cute, sad and short game, well-made and laconic. Although, I think the story was very direct and it could have used a twist ending. Good Job developer.
