I write of melancholy by being busy to avoid melancholy

This game is the fruit of a lifetime’s worth of learning, though the author emphasises that erudition is ultimately pointless, so perhaps it is better to remain ignorant.

What a name.

Presentation: Cool. Extremely minimal, lets you focus on the text, which is pleasant and poetic. No point overstays its welcome. I like that the figures aren't animated but everything else is, it creates a hypnotic effect.

Narrative: Fun! Has some real pathos esp given how short it is. I like focusing in on a single humour like this. The dour theology musing reminds me of some folk punk I listen to occasionally. Well done Democritus Jr II!

makes you think... heavy stuff.

i love this soooooooooooooooooo much. really was like Yeah.. YEAH!!

so thanks for that lucifer

neat little game :) pauses hurt a little to go thrugh but thats a my keyboard thing lol—it ultimately helped pace it pretty well!
