AAAHH!! I can't wait to play the full version! I'd for sure make a let's play for the full game!

I really loved this game! I cannot wait until the full version comes out

Loved it.  Can't wait for the full version

Honestly, I never leave comments, but this is a fantastic game. I love the diversity of the characters, genuine responses the character can give and that use of neon! I love neon! Can't wait to see the full version. By the way, the digital personal assistant is adorable. 

I'm completely in love with this game. Can't wait to see the full version!



I love this game so far. The artstyle is fantastic and I like the difference and diversity between characters. I particularly liked how in the character creation the player got to choose their own pronouns! Looking forward to more of this  game!

Amazing job so far! The  concept is really unique, the art is amazing, and the characters are really lovable. So far, Queen B is my favorite but they're all great! I'm excited to play the full game! 

Wonderful :)

I'm really looking forward to playing the full game! I love the music, art and concept ^^

Nice demo,  great arts and design your own character is awesome. Looking forward to it

This game is really fun, and I can't wait to play the finished product.
