Wow. That was amazing. The story was brilliant, and the background music fitted in so well. Amazing job.

I loved this. I loved learning the story in the telling of it, loved how the liminal space of a taxi ride fit this story. It was good, and peaceful, and ended well.
(Small note: at one point, the text was coming up in front of a tree with yellow leaves, and the orange taxi-driver's words were very difficult to read. I think if you added a transparent grey background behind the text, they would be clearer.)
Hi! First I LOVED the background music, it gets you into the mood straight away! it's been said before but the storytelling was really brilliant ! Keep it up, 8/10 !

It Was A Pretty Neat Game, little Confusing At First But Thats Because I'm Really Stupid. (Sorry About The Quite Audio)
i liked this lots. atmospheric, thoughtful, nice.
Storytelling was awesome
Athmosphere was 10/10
Storytelling was easy to read and interesting, which I think is one of the most important things when making games like these. Well done.
anyone solve this puzzle in the 1st try?
Though i didn't solve the puzzle, i wanted to play this all day. The story is a wistful wonder, art style and characters are superb and the music is almost hypnotic. Thanks for letting us play it, i did a video of my game, i hope you don't mind.
Totally enjoyed this calm, atmospheric game with rain at night. Beautiful lightning, a sweet soundtrack and a well written story (as far as i can judge). Would be nice to see more calm, atmospheric games like this, with even more extensions/details and a longer story
Very very nice. Lovely little reflective game, with lots of mystery and peace to it. I adore the character design and the use of lighting!
This was really beautiful, I'm still enjoying the headspace it put me in.
This game is amazing. I had a really good time playing it. Congratulations to the team and especially to the narrative designer for such an interesting story!!!
Loved the game guys, truly amazing. I also uploaded a playthrough. My one didn't last very long but I enjoyed what I did play :)
So I played this games and while the story was absolutly awesome, the way that you have to choose the right options to get to the end was way to tedious. It took me way over an hour to try and figure out and I had to even look at other peoples videos to try and figure out what to do. I think that you should take the choices away from the player once they have exausted all of the options for that choice because repeating the same choice and trying to keep track over everything you have already done is not an easy task plus I think the story should be the main focus instead of the tedious task of choosing options to get to the end. I go more in depth in my video about this kind of mechanic but I did cut a lot of the gameplay out because it took me so long to complete. I hope you enjoy the video.
Made a video
Its a great short indie game with a really interesting and complex story and unfurls really great :D
oh this game relax me
Would it be possible to make a Linux build?
So I recently learned about itch.io a few days ago and have been playing a lot of indie games from the website, and I'm really glad I found this literally the day it came out. I love the story, atmosphere, and everything about it. It's great.
Thanks for joining the community!
Happy to ear that!Now you have tons of masterpieces to play :)
Wow. Cool overall concept, story, music, design and atmosphere ! I wish there will be more Yokais and stories, but that would be greedy...
I loved it ! Thanks for letting it be experienced for free !!And for making it ..
Really fantastic storytelling yet again. It was a little difficult to understand the progression at times, and I'm still not sure if it was a matter of exhausting the dialogue or making the right choices, but since the game is all about the journey itself, it worked quite well. Great work!
Ugh I can't wait to try this. Thank you!!!!
Really interesting story... and I liked the conclusion... it was.. sweet and fitting. :)
Ooooh, SpaceBackyard at it again! Excited to try this!
