3 different, well written endings! Sure, you only have one choice and it's like in the end, but still. It was actually kind of realistic so a bonus point for that, because corporate really screws you up (not in the way Lamprey did but still).


Min's death is absolutely devastating goshdangit, I'd have avoided her death if I ever got to. 

Thank you for the kind comment! <3

Having issues getting this to run, my antivirus is flagging it, and even when I allow it anyways, it still won't open. 

Hey Allouin, what OS and antivirus program are you using? I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. I'll look into it and see if I can help find a solution.

I'm running Windows 10 and just classic Windows Defender for antivirus

I looked into this, but all I can really suggest is to try whitelisting the Lamprey executable with Windows Defender.

nice novel


I love everything about this game! It's so so good, the music blend really well with the aesthetic!


Thank you for your kind words!!
