I played this game a while back and forgot to rate/review it. Highly recommend this game. Absolutely bonkers and wonderfully surreal. 

this game was bizzare but i enjoyed it good job man

This game made me feel like a kid again but also like an adult discovering something new and really cool at the same time. I am really glad I came across your game and got the chance to play it/post it (:

That was really fun. I really enjoyed the puppets. 

What a trippy game! Really liked it, even though puppets scare me lol 

Really incredible experience, I loved all the sock puppet intermissions so much!

My 5th favorite Itch game I played in 2023 (Rest are in this Blog Post)
So there'll be a bit of money when I finish the Blog post (and that for me seems to mean some Booklet, excited to look into that).

I really don't know what to say about this other than it's really interesting and got me interested in your other stuff.

This game is a freaking trip and I have absolutely no clue what it is about, but it just has a perfect vibe... Whatever the hell that vibe is.

I recently downloaded the game and enjoyed all of it! It reminded me of weirdcore aesthetic, which was popular circa 2019, and old educational games I had in my childhood. Horror elements were unexpected but it brings some spice in the pot *badum-tss* :D
However, in my opinion, the game should be much longer, 3 levels were too short for me, 5 would be just fine.

A really well made game about recipes from the past. I really appreciated the videos with socks which are hilarious. The main idea is clever - travel in the past in order to get some recipes. I had fun playing. The main aesthetic is a little bit too disturbing, but gorgeous too. Some parts could be improved (I think about the camera movement in the maze), but all works well as expected. Thank you for this strange travel. It deserves more good ratings ++

PS : Those who invented fire were not vegan :)


I was allowed to play!

I couldn't get enough of the handmade character videos! The exploration and cooking parts were very strange and fun too.
