Hi Momo.

Pokemon 30th generation simulator. The story of this game was so great. It shows what happens when we go too far with A.I. Keep up the great work! 

Thanks for playing!

that does seem odd. I'll ask the programmer about it and show the video.

He said it may just be an issue with renpy (the engine) that caused the game to bug. If it happens again, please let me know and we'll fix it!

Gave it a Let's Play a short while ago, thought to post it here :)

Really fun game, I agree with the other comments here, the text was a bit difficult to read at times, but aside that I really enjoyed it, good work :)

I really love the aesthetic of this game. The music, narration, and imagery all come together to create a wonderfully atmospheric experience.

One issue I had: The line spacing in the text makes it really difficult to read, for me.

I am curious to how many endings this game has- so far, it seems to have only one. The story makes me feel very sad. Momo is very cute, but his existence was created to fulfil someone else's desires. 

Thanks for creating this game!

Thanks for playing the game! Yeah, I agree, the spacing for the lines is cluttered.

Unfortunately, when we were late in the dev cycle, all of our assets were at a different resolution than what we intended, so we just kinda had to roll with it. There is only one ending; we intended for there to be multiple, but we didn't have enough time with everyone's schedules :/

Appreciate you playing the game, and thanks for your great feedback!

**update: we have added 2 more endings to the game and attempted to fix the text box spacing!

The game sets amazing story from the beginning, which I was not able to be distracted from, as it's originality and pace just makes me wanna play more and more. Excellent job dev. Amazing. 

Thanks so much for your feedback and glad you enjoyed the game <3
