Cute concept, I would recommend letting the player use the down button to go down the lines, so you don't have to walk to a gap (if that makes sense). Would be a helpful quality of life change!

"Usually, text in games is ignored or even frowned upon. That's because games impress and entertain through their interactivity while text is in comparison a rather one-sided medium. We want to turn this dynamic around and make text the main interactive element of our game!"

Glad you like it. :)
We can't do that unfortunately because it would break the game mechanic but we will implement some other fun ways on how to get around in the level!
very sweet and well paced. Sometimes i was having a hard time but at the end it was always there
This was so charming and clever! I really appreciate the core mechanic of manipulating words and items and the fact that you add a little more as the letters go on. Even switching into chat as she grew up with relevant mechanics was a nice surprise. Great art style too!
I see so much potential in where you can go with this, like her ultimately being an adult and things moving onto a smartphone. It's also the kind of game I think any age can appreciate. I hope you have a successful campaign! Good luck!
Omg, you even gave Katya a Russian accent! I love this video very much, thank you!
Lovely and smart. Good luck with the Kickstarter, it will be great to see how Sarah's story unfolds. :)
I've finished playing the demo and it is amazing! I seen how far improved since the last demo and I like the changes of communication between Sarah and her friends going from letters to chat rooms as she grows up. I can't to see more of it when it is finished.
Made a video
Looks absolutely delightful -- good luck on your kickstarter!
