I played this at work without sound (I'll listen to the playlist later, promise!) - even so, the story is so well-told! All the vignettes, the background conversations ("I'm talking to someone offscreen!"), the turn of the seasons, the tape-themed UI details... all tying into the tale of the two people at its core. A relationship in all its beautiful, messy, bittersweet glory.

If you want to play along with the playlist (each segment of the game matches with one song), you won't exit the room until you interact with the Next Track button, which will appear when you have interacted with all the story-relevant interactibles.
This release is dedicated to Em, Emma, Freya, Onion and Ebeth, who suffered with me through the process. You're the best slimes anyone could hope for.
