I don't know how I got your game, probably some bundle far back in the depths of time, but I just found it on my old computer and dug it back out. And it's super neat! Thanks for making it

i absolutely love this!
i think i found a typo - "Tell how have you tried to reason with the Moon before."
It's not a typo but it's definitely not correct grammar. I write how I talk usually, and that's how I'd say that unfortunately. Maybe I'll change it
When you need to let it all out, ranting at just anybody usually doesn't work because they have to be the bigger person and take it. That's a lot of emotional labour.
Adira's solution is elegant. The Moon is always the bigger person.
This is needlessly good.
It's less a thing you play and more a thing you read (it's making a specific comment, and I think playing it seriously would hurt quite a bit,) but it's very well-written, and the layout is deeply stark and effective.
If you're on the fence about this one, re-read the last paragraph in the game's description. That's more of the tone it ultimately goes for. There are some comedy beats, but I don't know that I'd call it a comedy game, and maybe don't read it if you're feeling wronged and helpless, since you might get caught in the game's narrative blast radius.
It *is* good, though, and definitely worth checking out if you're curious.
This reminds me of what happened to Sokka in Avatar: The Last Airbender
