Hey! Saw your game was updated, so I thought I'd give it another run. Escape brings up the menu! I tried to be more thorough this time around - finding the bracelet, etc... I saw that escape brought up the menu, and smiled a little.  Also, I noticed this run around that I wasn't the only person with an appreciation for jokes about sinks :)




Thanks so much for giving it another go! <3 The update was just a bunch of really overdue fixes but it feels like things are a bit more complete now. :D

Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish. If it doesn't bother you, of course.

PD: Great job with this game, I love it.

Hi Mel, thanks for your interest the game! A translation sounds really exciting! :D What would you need for it? I'm not really sure that I'd want to send over the entire game project. Would we be able to sort something out using a localisation plugin?

I'd only need two folders, but I don't know if that would be a bother for you... D: 

I've sent you a message on tumblr since I think it'll be easier to talk over there :)
