"I'm disappointed in you."

Whoa. Wowowow. I'd never thought of those words as abusive. I thought it was my fault, for years. Thank you for making this.

As somebody who has been victim to narcissistic abuse, this is so beautifully written and hits veerrryyyy close to home.

This is very well done! Amazing game. It's clever, well executed and with a powerful message. Keep it up!

This is a really astute way of describing things.

This is awesome, I like it

i really admire how you used something as simple as directions to convey so much meaning!

Really well done
