Two undead beings contemplate death, rebirth, alienation, transformation, and trust.

A follow-up to Hatchling, this is another short game made to explore a character dynamic and also to get more familiar with some new tools: namely, some of Freya Campbellโ€™s Twitsy template. (Ironically enough, there is no Bitsy component to this piece.)

a beautiful piece of work


This is absolutely stunning. Such a profoundly insightful and delicately crafted message sheathed in gorgeous visuals and mystic undertones, honestly I'm obsessed. Your content is just so consistently powerful, every word of dialogue is accentuated with your unique brand of ambiguous depth and I'm just trying to use this newfound free time to savor and enjoy discovering every subtle nuance of meaning that lives within them. I leave every game not only just, completely and deeply touched, and in pure jubilation, but also wondering what did we did to deserve this gift to humanity? Like, how is this free? Thank you so much for the time and thought that you put into this. Its all very thoughtfully articulated, just in terms of the aesthetic and diction, and I really appreciate and respect you, as a creator and as a person. Stay safe and be well, lovely.

Thank you so much for this incredibly kind comment. I've been thinking about it all week. Getting such thoughtful, utterly lovely feedback is amazing. I really appreciate seeing your thoughts, and knowing that you regard this game and my other work so highly is truly touching. I enjoyed making this game a lot, and I'm so happy that it appealed to you so much and that you engaged with it so deeply! This series in particular is dear to me, so that's such an uplifting feeling. Stay safe and be well!
