Played it and read the devlog! I liked it for what it was on its own but I really liked how the additional reading gave me your perspective on things. My own interpretation before that was quite different. I recognised that your intentions were probably more different and more personal than anything I'd be able to guess, but I also thought my own ideas made the game have a different meaning to me, so it was neat to see in the PDF that this was something you'd hoped for!
My thoughts kind of went immediately to anxiety or something like that so it was interesting to read how much more specific it was and it added a whole new context to everything. You conveyed those concepts in a nice, creative way. I liked how you had to poke around to figure things out which fits those themes as well. Took me a while at the beginning to get anywhere. I liked how much weight there was to the actions, with sound, graphics, and mechanics all contributing, all being really good. I did notice the dynamic music but not exactly how it related to events in the game as you outlined. Really good stuff 💜
I got all three endings but after about an hour of trying things I still haven't found the secrets unless it's something like having to grab a screenshot of the train station monitors at a very specific frame. I did actually take screenshots to be able to read the text in the eyes at the start 👁️
Speaking of the train station, it was fun to read about it in the PDF, I did indeed assume/assign meaning to that as well, thinking that for you it was probably either some personal place or an extension of the message (that I failed to guess), and that for me it could be all sorts of stuff, and that in general it kind of fit the breaking out into the light theme, a terminal to get away.
As for the irony of the final message given what happened at the end of development, hopefully it still applies at a higher level, to life as a whole. It certainly suits your achievement with this game! Always lovely to see something personal like this and I'm happy for you to have been able to finish it! 💜 💜 💜
