This entry shows three snapshots of a birthday, from a birth, to a fun 9th birthday’s party, to a lonely one at 40. The end is very much an emotional whiplash…
I liked the change of colours in the background depending on the passage you were.

Three birthdays, one mother, July 20, 2023
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This game is a Neo Twiny Jam game written in 500 words or less.

It is a triptych of vignettes, each about a different birthday, each about interactions with a mother.

It uses both changes in artwork and changes in interactivity to signal the transition between the birthdays. I don't know if it is intentional, but I liked how (Spoiler - click to show)you started with few options to interact with mom, grew to have more, but ended up having no choices.

I thought this game was sadly sweet, and I'm glad I played it.
