As a fan of horror and an ENVS student at Tufts, I absolutely loved this story! I was also really enchanted by the vintage mixed media stylizing. I'd like to see more games like this.

I did not play it myself but just watched a Youtuber play it. I liked it so much that I had to comment praises. The animation is really cool! A bit unnerving, and perfect for the aesthetics. A fun way to make the story more engaging as you play. I loved the style of the art--the eerie designs of the creations. The romance, the relationship, and what it was saying, that hit well. A bit subtle, but clear, what they were going through and how it related to the project. Then the ending, the unexpected parts. Creepy, yet also sweet? Leaves you feeling unsure of how to feel. Morally gray.  Very well done!

This game hit hard. How the initial monologue hit and how the story develops, body horror as a way to tell something more than shock value and be more visceral (pun some what intended). Amazing work and cant wait for more.

Uncomfortable? Gross? Disgusting? I can't find the word to what experiment horror I just witnessed (literally because I'm not english speaker lmao). Love how it's also a gay allegory~

I really liked the quirky style this has! The chemistry between the characters was also great. The examination phase was sometimes a bit buggy (the recording dialogue showed on top of the next scene or didn't always show at all), but I liked it as a feature. I'd like to see more games in this style!

What!! What. That was really cool! All the characters acted very, very real. Despite the title I wasn't expecting to see any romance in this game but you know what, the awkward flirting was great and made total sense.

I loved all the photographs too, they were gruesome and beautiful at the same time. What happened with Ulna and Jack? I wish to know. I'm emotionally invested in their relationship.

What an unsettling story. I really enjoyed it!
