A small notgame about two disparate lives that collide in Vietnam. Takes about five minutes to play through, and requires no gaming skills. Made for my GameTrekking project.

Discussion and Reactions: NewgroundsGameTrekking, Twitter

This game was ported to HTML5 in 2022 by myself, Jeffry Robbins, and Julius McWilliams.


Some kind words:

Devastating… left me absolutely sobbing with awe (Jason Rohrer, creator of Passage and The Castle Doctrine).

A very moving experience (Lisa Liu, GameTrekking comments).

Very powerful (InsanePenguin99280, Newgrounds).

Vient alors le moment tant redouté. Je disais qu’il n’y avait pas de surprise: je mentais. Certes, nos prévisions étaient bonnes, et le gameplay est bien tel que nous l’avions imaginé. Mais aurions nous pu imaginer la violente succession de ces images que nous n’avons pas même le temps de regarder? (Pierrec, L’Oujevipo).

On the flip side:

Not really my type of game. (jacksonxwarrior, Newgrounds).
