absolutely wonderful, despite it making me a tad upset there at the end

The guy literally just fucking flew up into the sky when he was summoning.

What

Actual

Fuck

Love the summoning music

Really freaking weird, but fun nonetheless :)

Great game! i like it :)

Clever game. Great gameplay, sounds, dialogue. Depressing as hell, but hey at least there's always the beach. Well done

Very odd and unique game, I enjoyed it :P

But the ending was pretty bad lol

Very unusal job even for a racoon! The special effects when the racoon was summoning ghosts were very nice. Pretty pixels! I liked this fun game and it was great to see a racoon as main character of a story!

Great vibes!

Amazing fun escape from reality unlike life in this game you get loads of free will!

This is such a strange little game, but very well executed!

Each of the shapes has their own personality and manner of speech. The snippets of details we got about 'Shape people' society added a lot, I initially thought they were just 'placeholders' graphics, but a lot of thought went into the shape people and their lives!

This game is so strange in concept and SO well executed. I love it!

(Edited 2 times)

Any chance for music download? I especially love the piece that plays after you summon a shape. I left the game running hoping it would loop but it does not :(

EDIT: Hmm...seems to be looping now (at least as long as I don't change the tab)...strange... Still... A download would rock my world :)

I agree 500%, a soundtrack download would be totally wonderful. There's only a few tracks but they're all awesome.

I dance every time the summoning music plays xDDD I also like how much interaction there is in the game, and the text can be funny at times. I quite enjoyed this...but the ending was, so abrupt and...lack luster...xDD But I enjoyed teh journery friend, I'll follow you in hopes to see more interesting content from yuh.

Hey! I played this and loved it, I also recording my first time playing and posted it to YouTube, not trying to promote my channel here or anything but this was a great game and to see my experience visit

Loved the game <3

Great work

ugh great game
hoped it could've been a tad bit longer tho :0)

This was a really neat idea! I thoroughly enjoyed playing it and going through all of the dialogue. You really captured the mundane nature of working at his job.

Absolutely lovely game. Played this with my friends for Indie Game Night, and they all loved it as well; just the right amount of humor, interest, and thought put into this game. Nice work!

OK, this game was solely created for that racoon face.

Also this dialogue isn't that bad. Keep it up.

Ooo, this was good! Just long enough to convey the mundanity of this job without actually getting to be boring. Really dug the ending. Cool message.
