Wow.....that was intense.

I like your cover illustration.  It's a concept I've seen before but taken a very different spin.

This is a powerful story, but it is also an incredibly intense game -- I think it could definitely use more specific content warnings than it has for anti-trans harassment and violence, as well as for its very vivid depiction of anxiety.

I think this is an excellent narrative on LGBTQIA+ discrimination in the workplace. I can't wait to see more of your work.

This was such a powerful game with a very important message. The art style was simple and fit perfectly to this theme. One thing I noticed while playing was that when you talked to people, it took a really long time for the message to pop up and then you had to wait for quite a while until it disappeared. Maybe one way to do this would be to change so that the player could press on, for example, enter so they could decide how fast they wanted to read through the conversations? :)

Other than that I really enjoyed this game, keep up the good work! :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
