Gorgeous visual style, and a really interesting approach to grief! Thanks for all the hard work!

Quite a grim experiment, but the research goal is significant.

The soul wanders in the dark in search of a cure (or oblivion?).

Themed puzzles, the search for pills, endless staircases, cute conversations with a doctor, distorted sketches of consciousness and statues of mechanical birds - an impression in the Gothic style.

Passed in Steam. An ambiguous impression leaves after the end of the game. The boat is found, but this is not a happy ending.

PS: Played the first day - even more stairs, a music puzzle, a visit to the doctor. The style and graphics are great.
"Weevil" came for a short time and locked his demons in cages, promising to return in full embodiment.

Similar problems to the above: I got this with the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, downloaded the TGATS winV1.12.7z file. When I try opening the game, the Unity logo appears and then the game force closes itself. I am using Windows 10 Home.

inside "TGATSwin_Data" you will find an "output_log.txt". can you please send it to me at oophok (at) gmail

hello, i am running mac os catalina ver 10.15.4 and when i tried opening the game it says developer needs to update, I downloaded the game v112 for mac

hey, unfortunately macOS Catalina doesn't run 32bit apps anymore ;(

I got this with the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality but without a steam key I'm wondering what the download is actually for? When I open it it shows some credits then force closes

(+1)(-1)

hey, what version did you download and what OS are you running?

I downloaded v112, and I have windows 10

can you verify if you have a readme.txt file in the same folder as the game's .exe ? if not, please download the file again, I updated it with a fix.

There isn't, I'll download the file again and let you know if it works.

It fully loads now, thank you for your assistance!
