The past is a place to learn from, not to live in.

I got this game in a Valentine's Humble Bundle, saw it had good ratings and went in blind, assuming it'd be a dating sim like the others in the bundle. Boy was I wrong. This is a story about loss and all the fun that entails: grief, supressing memories, blocking emotions, and so on. I was not expecting it at all, and the thing is, last summer I lost my dear life companion and I'm so, so, sooo far from done grieving. It caught me by surprise, had me in tears all throughout once I realised what was going on, especially **SOFT SPOILER ALERT** at the end, during the "rushed" struggle with the meds. It really hit too close to home.
Anyway, it's a beautiful -albeit short- story. I finished the game in like 2 hours (although I did leave it running between breaks, and thus the 6 hour record). Cool Japanese vibes too... reminded me of 'The Girl from the Other Side' manga, for some reason. I highly recommend playing it.

You know your mental state is getting worse, when you fell in love with an owl.
Anyways, I became incredibly sad and bitched at my bf. He couldnt understand me and asked why, I said "because owl boy and sad girl."
