I replayed the game for the secret room at the end. I was in tears again by the end. I still love this game and I can't wait for future projects of yours


Amazing! I really like the overall atmosphere the game provides. It makes the story all the more engaging. Looking forward to playing more games from you. Cheers!


Was a very nice game.


It's really a fantastic game, I loved it. Could I translate this game to portuguese?


This game is so adorable. It had me in tears.


Hello, i really like your lovely game and well i translated the game into Vietnamese ^^

Giselle - Vietnamese translation


this game made me genuinely cry (feeling kinda stupid about it, but yeah), it was a good one, thank you for making it :)


Interesting short "horror" game, has some interesting puzzles that could use some clues, the story is really nice although nothing particularly original. If you want a nice little horror experience is really good.But don't expect any amazing plotwists.

The art style and Illustrations are amazing and work really well with the theme of the game and it also has a really good gameplay flow.

Lo dejo en español, traducido por voz. Lo disfruté mucho, y al final se me hizo corto... Por suerte caí en ambos finales (Y primero el malo), lo cual no me habría hecho emocionar tanto ver el bueno. Un juego impecable!! Felicitaciones!!

Short but engaging game touching on some dark topics with amazing art! 

An amazing game. That's how it really feels when being depressed. Very nicely depicted and it looks great too!

I made a video playing it aswell 

really cute one with lovable ending

hello! can i translate your RPG game into Russian?

This really captured how it feels to be heavily depressed
thank you so much for such an amazing game :>


sobbed so hard

 love it

This was a short yet, rewarding game about someone facing themselves. I could understand and relate to the struggles your character was going through and enjoyed getting to know more about her through playing the game. I love the visuals as well, the art is really well made. Good job! 

Thank you for the game! 

i really enjoyed it until the end ~ 

I just played the game and gosh, I really enjoyed it!

First of all, your art style is really pretty^^  So I  was very happy about the big amount of CGs in this game :D The pixelart is included in that :3 The whole map looked very cool and abstract (which was a good way to show how Giselle perceives her surroundings)

The puzzles were also very fun, creative and not difficult - which is very good for me, cuz I struggle with them sometimes TvT My favorite puzzle was the eclipse-puzzle :3

As for the story... I was also very touched by the good ending!! Without spoiling anything, it even made me cry a bit :') (but positively) 

All in all, I enjoyed this game a lot and I'm looking forward to your future games (^v^)/

Just finished the game and good god is it incredible!

Aww, this was such a fun game!I loved the art, your style is really pretty.

It's a good game, I like the story, although it's short, it has a lot of meaning.

I made a video on Youtube, you can watch it if you want.

Really loved the art of the game, and the puzzles were complex enough to be enjoyable. It was better than the last couple of 2D games I played. It was also nice to see so many CG images in the game, it really made the story moments pop out.

Looking forward to other games.


Me encanto! <3

Hi, I loved the game too much, I just had a little question, what is the name of the song that plays on the home screen?

Falling Star by Dar Golan :>

Thank you!!

My gosh, I felt like I was watching a movie, I was in such a captivated state.😱😍 I didn't even know that there were 2 endings until I saw it on the site.🤭 I was so happy to get a good ending first try. 🥰I LOVED voicing the characters!! I got a little bit emotional at the end. I'm so sorry if you're going through this or went through it not long ago.🥰 KEEP FIGHTING AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!😁👍

una pregunta preguntona, esta en español, y si no es así.. van a sacar una versión en tal idioma en algún futuro?

Solamente en inglés hasta el momento que vi. Pero si te sirve, yo subí traduciéndolo :)

gracias y que buen spam te mandaste jaajajaj

Jjaja hay que aprovechar!! Un abrazo!!! 

I haven’t played a game of this scale that’s brought with it this much raw emotion in a long time; I’m glad I got to experience it! Overall, it was an excellent game, and its message resonates very well. Although it was short, I still grew attached to the protagonist. As well as the progress they make throughout the story, complete with both heartwarming and heartbreaking moments.

The art throughout the different scenes and for the character sprites is well done and adds to the personality of the game. Alongside this, the music lends itself well to the atmosphere and mood. The riddles/puzzles themselves were on the easy side, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing as it keeps everything flowing nicely and avoids frustration. Also, the addition of a detailed walkthrough is a nice touch.

I’m not sure if this is your first attempt at making a game, but regardless, you’ve done a great job at taking some very delicate subject matter and turning it into a story with a believable main character; I hope that you keep making games!

If it’s okay, linked above is a video I made of my time with the game.

Make sure you take of yourself and thank you for the game!

I really like playing games like these. I hope that you make more!

i feel guilty i got the bad ending first, i pressed to fast

Really loved this game. It was so touching and you really handle the heavy topics in this game very well. I can't wait to see more games from you.

I really loved this game a really touching small game. The puzzles weren't too hard or easy.
I felt really moved by Giselle's story and I am really pleased that I got the good ending.                          I hope you will keep making games as will definitely play them.                                                        Real good work. 

My gameplay video


Its been a while since I’ve played a RPG maker game like this. Overall a great lesson and story where the puzzles did get me a couple of times :D


I was thrilled with this game. The gameplay is simple, but that's not a problem, the puzzles are fun, the music fits perfectly into the scenes making the game more exciting and finally the arts are very well done. Playing this game was an amazing experience.


This is really amazing! Can't say good enough such a piece of art with deep meaning.

Congratulations, indeed! 

Now the complete playthrough with both endings (at the moment of recording):


Really loved this game! Needed to record two videos about it, due to lack of time on the first video.

But damn! What a fine piece of indie game! Please keep developing this kind of games (even a sequel or prequel sounds good).


I honestly loved this game, from the reletable main character to the musics and the little puzzles that even I (a person that sucks with puzzles) could understand. I felt so sad after the bad ending (I tried bopth, the good one is adorable). 10/10 game!


Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed :> <3


Is there a MacOS version? If not it's a great game anyways, saw a gameplay of it and really loved it

Not yet :( 

Thank you!


oh man how i wished this was longer

most puzzle games get you walking miles to find a small piece of object and gives you little to no hints TT im alr bad at puzzle games so it doesnt make it any btr this was v ez and fun  :)

I’m glad you liked it! I’ll make longer games in the future :>

Your game is beutifull and very great way to tell how a person feels like trough thoose type of times. Im also wondering. May i know where you created the game? Im sorry if this is a bad question or smt like that. but i just really want to know since the game looks SO cool and beutifull

I used RPG maker vx ace :> 

You’re very kind, ty!


thank you! Have a nice day :]
