A short game with a very unexpected ending! Being a cat lover, I thought this was well worth the time, and a beautiful art style!

I love the art style of the game. I do wish it was a bit longer, though.  I was expecting a bit more in terms of gameplay, and a bigger house to roam around in. Nonetheless, I think this was quite a charming game with a nice, soothing piano BGM. It was a very relaxing play~

I'm happy that you like the artwork. Because I really enjoyed drawing them while game jam.  And about the content, I agree with you. I wish there were more things to interact and more expressions. I hope to polish this game more. Thank you!

Hello! I really enjoyed the concept of this game and was surprised by the way it "ended." Wasn't expecting that! However, my playthrough was rather buggy. It looks like you can sit with A button on Xbox gamepad, but the animation is glitchy and Maya won't actually sit. I couldn't really interact with the people and the only objects I could interact with were slippers, a cup, food, and the TV. I'm not sure what caused it, but after interacting with the cup numerous times a door finally opened. But, I understand this was for a game jam and appreciate the work that quickly went into it!

Thank you for playing our game. And Yes, we couldn't achieve our original goals, like some of the animations and objects were dropped. But, We hope to polish this game more, so please stay tuned.
