i'd like to deeply thank the both of you for this game.
it sounds a little wack how a short visual novel about furry cowboys could cause someone to have sort of a mini-epoch, but anyways -- 

i'm a transman myself, and i dunno if it was just how touching and relocatable the story was in reflect to a strikingly similar situation i'm in, but whatever it was, this game got me so riled up emotionally i went on a ramble for well-over-an-hour to my s/o about how close we are to being able to escape and achieve happiness as well and how beautiful everything is. that was the first time i'd felt a sense of self love in 5 months. i literally felt like i was going through egodeath. i appreciate things a lot more since that. just being alive and such. trying to appreciate myself more too. hgfjd sorry to rant on it for 13 hours but i guess this project just hit really close to home and put me in a hopeful mindset that kinda just flustered my previous extremely-pessimistic overall thought process to a point where it basically just crumbled. thank you for that. i hope development on this project continues someday.

Touching, freedom has a new meaning to me now, and love has never been sweeter between two nearly identical persons. Keep this up dev, it's amazing

This was super sweet and touching! The art and music worked really well to create a quiet atmosphere that was just lovely to take in for a while, and the protagonists are just so easy to like and root for!
