An interesting game; the art-style was great! i'm not sure though if there was a story, but regardless it was a enjoyable experience.

Interesting concept, i can see this having nice gameplay with some sort of adventure game mixed in. The art style is really unique and looks great.

The style is amazing. This is almost art, not a game.

Congratulations, this is such a good idea. I like a lot the graphics and i've been several minutes trying to guess what happened with this couple. Many things could be! I would like to know what really happened! Nice art and perfect audio. Good job!

I spent a looooooot of time trying to figure out how the "cube" worked but eventually couldn't. But I don't care. It was a lovely moment, and definitely my favorite game of yours! Really clever and really well done.

This was very interesting! It feels like some interactive art book, with pop ups and stuff. You would play around and build a story with it.

Since the guy can be alone, I wish that the girl could be alone too. What I mean is, that way the story could also have been told from her point of view.

It still is an amazing idea, and it's awesomely done.

Really nice art-style/mechanic. I like the artistic vibe of the game, though a little bit more guidance would perhaps be even better (in terms of gameplay).

This is a gorgeous entry, very impressive. I also love your use of the them, and just the over all mood of it. Great, great work.

Wonderful aesthetics. This is a pretty cool moody experience you made there. Nice puzzling little story.

Interesting graphics style.

Superb concept, and excellent execution. I love it. I lost track of time creating different situations.

The music could change too! Multiple layers of audio supporting your visual concept!

Amazing art and mood.

Super awesome concept. this is a beautiful thing, I can picture a series of these in an interactive art exhibit.

I love this! Really nice atmosphere, the music and sound effects you've used are perfect. I wasn't such a fan of the puzzle element, though, it felt like it was too difficult to get the combinations I wanted, unable to visualise the full state (though it did give rise to nice combinations by chance).

Lovely game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
