sincere and sweet. the art is lovely and the ending made me happy.  :')


Even though that probably wasn't the intention, i love roleplaying the game as an undercover right-wing death squad agent sniffing out gays to ambush after the party, drag them into an unmarked van and shoot them, though if you ask me every single degenerate at the party should have the same treatment. 

color palette is pretty good also


This was really nice and wanted to say happy Pride month.Go out there and express yourself :-)

So fun and quick to play and aw, the ending surprised me. Really sweet!


Okay, I'm not a crier, but this game - this 23 minute game - I cried. The extra dialogue and just the care I just - I'm not gonna explain it because I can't. Just thank you for existing and thank you for making this game.

Hey there! Thanks for taking time out of your day to leave this comment. I made this game from a place of love and solidarity and your reply means a lot to me.

Yes it is!

Well... I enjoyed it. Though I'm still not sure what "it" is...

Anyways, more like this please! Love the humor!
