i literally don't know how to play sorry


game was fun. bet i missed a bunch.. i never figured out what to do with the snowglobes.. 

Pain. This game freezes my chromebook when I try to run it.

sadly..my down key was broken, so I couldn't continue Tori's quest! skill issue on my part..

(1 edit)

aaaand i just lost my progress. sorry for being so clumsy!!

please fix

i have not been able to save anyone

super amazing game omfg. only saved sean and elijiah on my first try but ill definitely try and save everyone else next time i play.


Finally finished this game,it felt are bit weird to me,all of this stories about LGBT relationships,and in some dialogues i felt kinda cringe and uncomfortable,but im not gonna lie,the ending was pretty cute,and the song in the end was very heartwarming and soulful,for soulful song,art style,and interesting characters,im putting 5\5


yo idk what the hell happened but i  broke tori


I love the reactions when they go to heaven they aree like soo happyyyy fills my heart with jooyyy




This has been my favorite game on here so far! Not only cuz of the cats but the story is so amazing. and the ART omg.... especially when you save everyone and walk around before you enter the gates. 10000000/10 will play again.


GAHHH I CANT EXPRESS MY TRUW LOVE FOR THIS GAME IT IS ONE OF MY FABORITES AND ITS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. From the music to the design ro the story!! Im not sure the creator will see this, but if so, do you think youll ever post the complete ost (besides purrgatory blues) on spotify?

i cant type my name..😞

This game is very fun, however when I got to the "call the devil, Maybe" quest, I didn't know how to, i tried to phone number it wanted me to but to no avail? Can I get some Help?


For a game I just randomly came across one day... This is absolutely insane. Everything about this game from the characters and character design, to the music, plot, and dialogue are just incredible. I literally cried at the end. I am far from exaggerating when I say this is the best game I've ever played.


I love this game so much X3


truly the greatest game to ever come out

did i actually save everyone on my first run?:o is that a thing?


you can call 911 in the beginning of the game lol


I want to play it so bad but it refuses to load... :(


me too :(


What's behind the door that won't budge?

Asking the real questions here

I love everything about this awesome game.


well the animals  are cute and look cool in this game

Just finished my first playthrough! I could only save Tori sadly but maybe I'll get 'em all next time.

I cant get down the hole! The arrows dont work!

Wait how much variation is there in the endings? It says "You saved one person" but I have no idea how I could do anything different. Do the characters represent tone-downed versions of the seven deadly sins? Some of them are obvious but I can't tell. Anyway, if you're scrolling through the comments to find out if you want to play the game or not, play it. It's great. Unless you only play action games. Then don't.

there isn't much but you can save more than one person and unlock you lost memories! and the true ending will happened. and then you will get to hear the greatest music i ever hear in a while


such a good game!! i love that we can help free characters from purrgatory! also live laugh love oliver


The "Too much (Adult Funtime) " COMMENT GOT ME LAUGHING SO HARD


hey niv, are you consedering a mobile relece?


Just finished my first playthrough of this and it was SO GOOD. The humor is just my type, the characters are cute, the art style is so fun, and it leaves me wanting to play more. I was only able to save Elijah and Sean this first time but I'll definitely be coming back to try and finish it. 10/10, amazing game

I had so much fun playing this game! Natalie is my favorite character :)


Numa and Kyungsoon's relationship is so cute!


Not me literally carrying a ladder around everywhere trying to find how to use it... (I love this game so much trying so hard for the good ending)


Found its use hahaha so happy!


I love them. Thank you for making this game

just finished it, best game ive plaed in a WHILE

iaccidentally finished without saving anyone, igot a  curious and called lucifur too early, ill have to try again :P
