Loved the atmosphere of this game. A post-pandemic society, plus the nature of the plot is like grief meets sorrow yet somehow based on the options I made it feels like a touch of hope thrown in. Simple game, deep everything else! Well done!

Hi Jar Red
Thanks for playing through Erica's Game and for making the video. I am glad that you enjoyed it.
This was a really simple yet impactful short game. It was heartwarming slightly also. I almost wanted to give a go and refuse everything a second go around to see if that would change anything. But I liked the ending I got and didn't want it to change. I hope you make more games in the future!
Thanks for playing through Erica's Home and making the video. Thanks also for your sensitive comments and encouragement.
Erica?..... Are you okay?....
