A thought-provoking game. Depressing yet captivating, what I don't understand is why this game is entered to be rated on 'Humor' side.

Hard to say if that was actually "fun" (that's the problem with this category), but I enjoyed how personal this game feels. Nice work.

Hey, great entry! I'm a bit of a sucker for narrative games and, although the gameplay wasn't especially strong, the story came across as genuine and meaningful.

Wasn't entirely sure how to interpret the ending--whether he was standing beside his own wheelchair with his wife on the other side, or whether those were his children--but whichever way, it worked well.

Great job! :D

Wasn't expecting to find an entry like this, but truth is that the theme is absolutely spot on: one room doesn't always have to be fun, sometimes it's a prison. Enjoyed reading the thoughts of the protagonist, brutal but an uncomfortable truth for many people in this world. Thanks for making this, the variety is what makes LDJams so great and this was really well made. Congrats!

Appropriately depressing! Well done! Great art and music and mood. Not fun, but I doubt that was the intention ;)

Really nice story, hearthbreaking message, but not really a game either.
Really interesting entry

It was so depressing :( It reminds me not to abandon my parents when they get older.

But I loved the game!

Interesting choice of subject matter – I applaud you for giving it a shot. I don't know that it was very successful, but it's a courageous subject to attempt.

The song was appropriately sad and haunting, having to call to nani every time was annoying which I suppose was the point. Nice job

The atmosphere is sad and well realized.
The story is really nice.
Well done.

Touching.

Quite the emotional game. I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/sgVfFX3jjXQ
