I really, really enjoyed playing this game! The art was awesome and the gameplay was right up my alley. Thank you for much for sharing. :)

A wonderful experience. Thank you for making this game.

I liked the rhombus

I feel like if more games ended the way this game did, then the world would be a better place.

That ending was so anticlimactic and I loved every single second of it. 

(+5)

that goddamn crescent- i wish i could have punched it in the gross face of an awful shape nobody likes 

(+6)

I can relate to the Racoon somehow,  and the ending is ... I could say it's unexpected.  The racoon didn't deserve it :( 

After all, this is a really good game but I don't understand how this is so underrated :(

(I'm trying not to give spoilers in the comment lmao)

It was sad for sure, but on par with the rest of the game. And not so bad of an ending after all... the raccoon finally gets to let go of the past and move on with their life. And the very final line of narration seems to support this.

wow this game is so funny i loved it great game

Very strange since a shape killed another shape.. but i had a great time this is an amazing game.

Very strange! Depressing yet weirdly hilarious

(+1)

I actually really enjoyed that, good job!

(+3)

Funny game with not much complexity. Really enjoyed it.
Poor Racoon, damn :(

(+3)

also WHY DO I RELATE TO THE RACCOoN

this was so random and funny!! def one of the best games i found on itch.io :)

(+3)

this was really cute/funny to play through :). The square/rectangle one was so unexpectedly wholesome

oh my god i loved this so much, top writing

That was such a neat little game!

Haha, that was a fun experience. I wish there was more!

Awesome game,it's fun and sad in the same time,this is unusual to make plot about shapes

Incredibly hilarious (loved the joke shape), great sprites. But wtf was that ending?

(+2)

Weird and depressing take on life. To close for comfort. 5/5

Loved it, what a fantastic ending!

Wow, this was really nice!

I absolutely love the absurd and nihilistic humor in this.

(+2)

easily the most underrated game ive played on this website. why is no one talking about this game

(+2)

(+1)

Amazing game, good graphic nice story, disturbing and funny. Love the humor, romance, violence, and depressing factors that collide together. Very good game will play again and look at what happens to each shape

...that was an experience. Unexpected but interesting.

This was amazing, depressing and trippy all at the same time. Well done!! It was a shocking ending. Great music and pixel art! Keep it up!

This needs a part two, although I'm not sure how this game would be continued.

(+4)

Wow, that was a great game.

/ Spoilers Ahead /

I didn't think I'd find myself saying this about a game with such a silly premise, but the Diamond part really got to me. Even though it's short, it was a nice portrayal of dealing with toxic parents.

The Square part was also really nice, couldn't bring myself to use any of the mean options.
