Really liked this one, you don't typically see a 1800s Japanese backdrop to a Halloween game. Here's a video playthrough I had. I apologize for my voice, which was a bit strained when I went through this, so I had to selectively vocalize lines out of necessity: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/768996030

A very sweet story. I enjoyed both good endings, all three characters, and the fairy tale tone. I wasn't familiar with the original story before playing, but after looking it up I definitely enjoy this take on it a lot more.

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the game :) We also had fun reading lesser known fairy tales when we first came up with the concept!
