This was such a cute game!! The art style, the story and the music were all perfect for such a wholesome game ;') 

I know I'm asking too much but it would be great if we could also have an Elijah's POV just to see you pals creating something as heartwarming as "Just a Crush" 

Good job and amazing game 10/10 will play it again ;)

Thanks so much for your kind comment! I'm super glad you enjoyed it. :D

I don't know about making a version of Elijah's POV. But basil (the artist) and I might collaborate again in the future. :)
