"With no more Time left to lose, we start losing parts of ourselves..."


A point-and-click + visual novel hybrid about a crumbling dream world. Time is your most precious possession. Choose between helping the characters gain their forgotten memories, or focusing on your goals.

Just a fun little drabble I made for a game jam.

Interesting game, loved the character design, hopefully you will pick it up again in the future.

Great to know this project still alive, it is extremely beautiful and detailed, gonna follow and keep on check.


Oh my lord, Developer. How are you so good in your craft?? "Cupid's" writing left me speechless while "Eros Conquers All" shows us what you got with your art. And THIS??? WHAT?? WHAT IS THAT COVER ART?? How do you do that?? I want to make it my wallpaper XD XD XD It blows my mind. As a person who can only draw stickmen, I can't comprehend it.

I'm so happy you are restarting the project T_T I will look forward to this T_T The art causes me to weep even if without tears T_T

Well I always thought this game looked so compelling by the artwork but I see it's been on here for years. Sadly the reason why many haven't played it is when you upload a youtube video the music used in it gives you a copyright claim. I don't make money yet so it was no problem for me to leave this up. I love the characters and story so much but I'll leave this as a testament to anyone else who might play it. It's a whimsical and moral tale. I had fun doing voices for all the characters. Would love to see this be a full game with new music in the future.

Hey Tokio! Thanks for letting me know that this happens. I'll see what I can do about the copyright claim. I'm thinking of reviving this project this coming year, so I'll probably update the soundtrack. Thank you so much for your support and comment. It really inspired me to revisit this project!

Hey no problem I actually adored this game when I played it! So if you do update it please let me know I would love to do a full voiced playthrough. Here is the name of the song that gives a copyright claim. It's called Nana Nanita by Circus Marcus. I believe it plays throughout but it mainly got me in the library part where there is no talking over it. I really did enjoy this story so much, I'm a sucker for moral tales please continue your beautiful work!

Thanks a lot for the info! I'll update when I've made progress ^^/

Is this game still in development? It's really beautiful and wonderfully designed, so really hoping to see a final version! <3

Any plans for a Linux version ?

Yes, we're still finalizing the next version of the demo but it will have a Linux version. The complete game will also have it.


Its noir style of art and the narration has already intrigued me to its release. The puzzles are also entertaining, although there seems some skipped choices where the scene abruptly left without response from the characters, like when asking the joke from the library keeper (pardon that I forgot her name ^^"), and after returning the mask to the Nue the kistune.

Hey Sora Album. Thanks for playing the game! That feedback about the responses is a good catch, thanks a lot! Let us know if there's anything else, alright? : ) Happy New Year to you! (btw, the library girl's name is Mary!)
