What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want this game to not only meet my standards, but to meet the majority of everyone elses. I believe, due to the genre and nature of this game, it'll be difficult to target and please everyone, but I'd still like to aim to get as close to that reality as possible. I can only do this by responding to player's feedback and suggestions!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No more than 3 months after being available to download. I believe in this time I will have enough feedback to polish the game and make general gameplay improvements that benefit every player.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The game after it's out of Early Access won't differ too much from its current state. There won't be massive content updates or additions, only quality-of-life improvements, making the game more accessible to a wider audience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable from start to finish! A player can start the game, go through all the tasks within the to-do list, complete them, and finish the game!

(There just may be a bug here and there that I will eventually be ironed out)”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Definitely not. I can't want this game to be accessible to a wider audience but expect them to pay an upfront cost. That would go against my morals!

The aim of this game is to teach and or be a game/place of comfort. I don't want to hide what this game has to offer behind a paywall. I'd love for anyone to be able to pickup and try this game out whenever they want.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be taking notes on feedback and making alterations to the flow of the game where necessary, such as the tasks/mini-games. Are they enjoyable? What can be changed for them to be better? Does it properly teach the lesson I'm hoping the player to learn?

I believe these modifications will help the game be enjoyed by a wider audience, as I am just one guy with one mind, there's only so much that people can enjoy from that singular perspective. Especially when mental-health is so vast and unique to each person.”

Naveen, the Frog - teaches the player about journaling.
Neptune, the Teardrop - teaches the player a self-love practice.
