(please take good care of hermie)
(thank you)

made for #pasteljam18
arrow keys to move the cursor left and right
x, esc, numpad 0 to cancel or exit
z, enter, space to confirm or progress through dialogue

playtime: 5-10 minutes, super short!!

i used rpg maker mv & i made all the assets. 
i don't know anything about making music.... i am so sorry... i tried. haha.

there's a tiny bug at the moment. it's rare, but you may run into it.
sometimes when hermie has a speech bubble the cursor gets stuck.
just give the game a moment to finish the speech bubble animation.
sorry!! i'll try to fix it asap.

This is so sweet. Hermie is a good friend.

Hermie is such a sweetheart! Although the game was quite linear in its nature, I liked the way you built the relationship between the player and Hermie. <3 And the whole pixel art was just outstanding (even if the pastel shades could have been a bit more contrasty for my taste, but eh, maybe it's just me :) ). A wonderful little game that I liked to include in a compilation article about the Pastel Jam. In addition, one minute of gameplay can be seen in the accompanying video. <3 Great work!

Best wishes,
Sebastian
