Simplemente Maravilloso, Grandioso Juego.


Oh, how scary the world can be for a melon on its own... :> The graphical style of your game was gorgeous, and I love how implemented a circle-like narration in it. Life is a journey after all, especially for a melon, I suppose. :) It's a cute little game which I happily recommended and also uploaded a playthrough video for. <3 Keep up the great work!

Best wishes,


haha erst jetzt gelesen :D danke sebastian <3 

Hello! I really enjoyed your game, it had a sweet design and a nice little story to it! I made a let's play of your game alongside another game here~

Saw your comment just now :) Really enjoyed your Let's Play! Thank you so much! 

You're more than welcome!


I loved your game, and I may have used it to tell the story of the Easter bunny.


I love this game.
