This game reduced me to tears. I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY!*

*You should be. Not many things do that. It's such a loving story, and the game has such a fun and charming way of telling it.

I like to think of myself as a sweater knitting granny, but instead of sweaters, I make games. Not great games, but hopefully nice enough to be enjoyed by a handful of people in a small community.

Looks epic! Will be checking it out!
@littlebomi: Sorry, for my late response. I was on vacation. ^^"

Please send us a bug report with this form with as much information about the error you can remember as possible.
https://listen-game.de/report-bug/

But it could be that you just downloaded a corrupt version. It may be that your problem is solved by downloading the game again. I never heared of this bug before so I just can have a guess.
i don't know what did i do wrong.
But after awhile of playing like after the beginning
it just stops and like "Script is missing something like that
I hope you can help me.

@Mega_Cabbage: Which bug? We got again a problem with the download (Bad Gateway). I've no idea why we have that much problems with the download. It should be fixed now... I hope.
Please write me if it's not!
Ah ok thank you! It works now. The bug I was experiencing was the bad gateway as well.

i love the title screen!

the music is beautiful

no phone :3 but shes at least 5 yeah? its common for children to have iphones now a days! (as stupid as that is)

the animations are so cute at the park!


This was a beautiful game,i have not enjoyed a game on this rpgm engine as much as this in a while!
no battles or pointlessly huge and or empty mapping. a properly done story driven game with a deep meaning!
at least one time during this i considered crying between the music and the feelings the mc has.
gameplay was around a hour and 1/2

Overall
i strongly recommend trying this out!

Well, I got a Let's Play recorded for this game.
Just finished the game and it's very nice. The story is interesting and the graphics are beautiful. The puzzles are very cute.
@BlackLilith: No. It only has one ending.

@Ell1e: I hope I've fixed this problem now. Can you try it again? I know from one person who had this problem, too. She said that it is fixed now for her.
I keep getting an error message when I try to load your site. Something about getting rerouted?

Pasting it here, but it's in German: Die aufgerufene Website leitet die Anfrage so um, dass sie nie beendet werden kann.
Dieses Problem kann manchmal auftreten, wenn Cookies deaktiviert oder abgelehnt werden.

It says the problem can happen if Cookies are disabled, but I have cookies enabled. My browser is Firefox, Internet Explorer doesn't work either.
Yes, it'll be translated into Italian. One half is already translated. But at this moment I can't promise that we can release this language along with the other ones because we still need proofreaders. And of course our translater needs to finish first. XD
This sounds so cool! Looking forward to its release.

And, the game's gonna be translated in Italian? I'm gonna cry out of happiness.
