This stuff comes naturally to me, so it was great to be able to write from prompts to test myself. I loved the game, and I hope you enjoy my video on it. I got a tad bit creative.....might even say too much. Would love to see a longer/more full experience game in the future!
That video was a wild ride, haha! Thanks a bunch for making it, and I'm glad you had fun!
A very enjoyable, immersive experience. The little details like the typewriter sounds and animation of the keys really adds to the feeling of being there. Thank you for making this!
Very pretty game that has a lot of really touching moments and simulates the feeling of an actual typewriter really well which is really nice since I've never used a real typewriter before. Letter-writing design also allows for a lot of emergent gameplay which is really cool
What a sweet and lovely game! I wasn't expecting to enjoy this sort of format as much as I did. And as someone who used a typewriter as a kid, this was nostalgic fun, too.
Amazing idea! This is such a great game for creatives!
Such a beautiful game!!! I love the way the requests follow storylines and the restriction of the typewriter (no deleting letters/fixing typos) makes it feel like every word I write is both precious and imperfect.
