wished it was longer. i liked listening to the people of this strange world. i thought there might have been a mystery, with one of them, that i could resolve. it was very satisfying to be able to give people what they wanted. like a little social power fantasy.

The first time I played this I ran into a bug where the last confession didn't load properly, but second time around was the charm. That aside I adore the concept and execution of this game; the recursive 'human playing a machine that replaced humans' aspect to it when it comes to the lore built up around the confessionals is especially fun to chew on. And the confessions are so very human and relatable, even when they aren't confessions at all. Those were some of my favorite ones to read.

Thank you for sharing this great work!
