Wow - this is very good. I love that so many screens are just darkness, save for the dialogue at the bottom. It seems like it shouldn't work, but it does; there's a real sense of being in someone else's head.


this is great - just like the first one. i like the interesting vocabulary. (yeah, kinda weird thing to comment on but it really sticks out for me. <3


This is such an interesting story! I'm really looking forward to seeing how this all ends <3


ugh this is SO GOOD!!!!! I don't know how to convey how good this is other than yelling.


I have no words. Great. Forgive me for my brevity.


a really great sequel to the first. the tower graphic is so striking


Wow that was nice! Good narrative! Did you just have an invisible sprite to advance everything?

yep! Invisible avatar picking up invisible items :)
