I cried a little, this game is so beautiful and incredible and bittersweet. 
So lovely.

Also Maris reminds me of Lapis Lazuli from Steven Universe

I didn't think I would like it because I thought it was really cheesy at first but by the time I got to day 4 and Maris' singing I was loling!
I loved the concept, it's a relaxing and touching game with lovely visual!

Awwww this was so cute. The ending with the mum being the first friend was such a nice small twist to end the game. Maris talking in third person was kind of annoying though, Abnormalabbie hates it when people do that.

OKAY I FINISHED AND HOT DAMN THAT WAS GREAT. CANTUS HAS GROWN UP. HE AINT NO SHITTY LIL SHOTA ANYMORE.
To get away from that, I had lots of feels when the memory of Cantus being insulted was shown. That hurt. A lot. It's sorta relatable for lots of people. And the 'noise' theme-at first, I found it cliche. But in the end, it really fit in. I actually thought Cantus was a music freak at first, but now that I know why Cantus wears those headphones-hot damn, it makes a lot of sense. 
But I ship Cantus and Maris. :3 And i can sort of see why Cantus disliked his mother, since she was a music lover and he hated noise in general.


On another note, I didn't know there was voices? Or in the least, I never heard the voices. Poo, I really wanted to hear them speak. ;;--;;
