The repetition makes a lot of sense, since that's exactly what it's like to live with depression. It's repetitive, just doing the motions over and over. Thats the charm of it!
Anyhow, I am glad you are alive today. This is well done, friend!!
This is my second time finding this game, the first being a year ago when I was very much questioning myself and my identity, and I needed all the reassurance I could get.
The first time through, I left with a smile on my face from the final coffee-shop dramatic scene.
My second time through, and I'm in tears.
I have come out inbetween the first and second time playing, and I'm very openly gay (and proud!!). I have no doubts about my identity or hatred of who I am, I feel really confident as a queer person nowadays. This time playing, all those feelings of confusion and loneliness and feeling so lost just hit me like nostalgia....
But in a good way. It shows me how far I've come. This game is absolutely, truly a wonderful piece!! It really gives a hug as well as a punch to the face (haha,...h a h... thats not funny.) to all the queer kids who come across this nicely made game.
If you're reading this and are part of the LGBT+ community, and are in either place I mentioned above, I'm proud of you and I love you!! (It gets better™)
[TL;DR this game is great and im very, very gay]
