This reminds me of that episode every children's cartoon has in which they enter the body of someone after making themselves small in order to save them. But here you're inside someone to save yourself with some loving. That's something you don't see everyday!

The concept is really interesting and funny, but the conversational mechanics feel a little bit off. Still, the weirdness of the gameplay seems to fit the weirdness of the setting, so maybe that's intended.

The graphics are as weird as the game, which is fitting, and the lobster looks cute enough to make a series of game in which it has to face different aspects of everyday human life.

Good job!

Very creative use of the theme and the room looks great! The conversations are okay but the frogs/butterflies can get a little too annoying, especially if they are obscured by the organs.

The gameplay is weird...but the conversations are good. The idea is very original! Good job.
