I like the ideas and writing in this! Great cyberpunk vibes.

Thank you so much, it has a long way to go. I ended up having to post earlier than I was ready for but that's kinda the way it works sometimes. x_x
I just played through this. I love the sense of time jumps as the weapons system, that you're only brought out during the fight/flight response, and always without time to explain what happened in the meantime, or the context of why you're here, right now; and the body you're riding is always unwelcome to your presence.
Thank you so much for this comment. This reminds me of why I really love this game. I plan on finishing it but I've been a mess.
I desperately want to love my body that keeps trying to keep me alive no matter how upset I get and this game was kind of a love letter to that. I'm really glad that you get it, I hope you will play the full version once it's finished, whatever form it takes.
I love that this basically takes the "I didn't ask for this" Deus Ex meme and turns it into a compelling exploration of bodily autonomy, technocratism, and the politics of self-harming. Very interested in the full release.
Thank you so much, I don't really know what that meme is but I get what you mean. I guess I just kinda felt that we have a lot more technology these days but everyone is just miserable and end up feeling helpless. If knowledge is power and we have access to unlimited information why isn't it helping? We are at the peak of access to tech that's unprecedented in history and we're all just kinda flailing around with it instead.
At the same time I wanted to try to learn to love the part of my brain that's fight or flight and look at things from it's perspective as a body mindlessly trying to survive regardless of what I want. Looking at it that way there's something very kind and likable in how determined our bodies and fear responses are at trying to keep us alive. I wanted to write that kind of inarticulate hero(ine)/victim.
Anyway, I'm at risk of ranting but thank you for feeling excited about the game. I'm glad I can put some time into it's fundamentals, the next release will be stronger? (I hope!)
Very compelling, I look forward eagerly to the full release!
Thank you so much. I made it in a really short timeframe so I didn't have time to do the prep work I usually like to do. I promise a full version will be out eventually.
I always like the notes in your games, I know it's supposed to be a demo, but it makes it feel more personal. It's interesting to see all the outcomes written out, too, the game becomes this really unique, curious document
Thank you so much. I'm always really happy when you read my rough betas, especially your feedback on saving you from yourself 2. It means a lot to me that someone appreciates my roughs.
Yeah, I love this too. I adore the feeling of the scrawls in the margin.
