A charming parser game with detailed graphics and constrained gameplay, December 26, 2020
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This is a great game. I went back and forth on a 4 or 5, but there are so many great little details that I'll definitely go with the higher score.

This is an adventuron game with a detailed life sim. You have to keep up your hunger, happiness and energy bars. In addition, you have to solve little puzzles that your wife (or partner?) Pel sets for you.

There are numerous illustrations, especially for the puzzles. The writing is solid.

The story isn't completely original (what is?) but is executed well. The life-sim is a bit easier than it could be but fits narratively. The puzzles are all in constrained environments and occur one at a time, but require ingenuity and creative thinking.

Definitely worth trying out. It does require the graphics as an essential component of the puzzles, though, making it difficult for visually impaired players.

Fun puzzles, great graphics. Easy to navigate- would be perfect for beginners who like puzzles. Surprisingly moving. I had a lot of fun with this one!

Very impressive for a first game jam/pixel art game, December 23, 2020

I was a beta tester for this game. The graphics are cute, the puzzles are fun and not frustratingly difficult, and the storytelling is funny and yet surprisingly emotionally resonant. And there's a robust tutorial for people new to IF, as well as Easter eggs for more experienced players. Also real eggs.
