This was really fun, such an interesting idea. The world and suitors were very intriguing,, would love to play a longer version but what's here is a great experience. 

an interesting concept! it was fun to play, I haven't seen anything like this in a long time.

Interesting wee game 

The art is great, and lays the groundwork for a future game (hopefully). Each of our possible suitors has a unique charm to them, and the reveals for each are really cool. Thanks for this!


Thank you from the game's artist! Who knows, we may have something in the works...

A rather short dark journey socializing with the guests, nonetheless an enigmatic tale and clever turn of events (a literal meaning, moreover) corresponding to the story's theme ^^
