That was such a unique and lovely experience, thank you!
Train to Amber Coast

A short, sweet game with a sprinkling of point-and-click, I really enjoyed my time with it: Between the stylized pixel art, the music, and the breezy dialogue, it had a calming, relaxing atmosphere for me, with an almost Ghibli-like magical slice-of-life feel throughout. The idea of a peaceful train ride with interesting but friendly passengers seems completely out of reach in my slice of time and space, so it was a pleasant bit of escapism, and the little hints of worldbuilding, and about the other passengers on the train, really made the game feel like a quick peek into a more colorful, more welcoming world. The ending was a very nice conclusion, even if more questions went unanswered than otherwise, but I like that our nameless protagonist will get to hang out with his giant, sandwich-loving friend. I wish that I could really catch a train for the Amber Coast, but since I can't, this is definitely the next best thing. An understated little gem, which I very much enjoyed!
That was a really short game but still an awesome experience! I absolutely LOVED the aesthetics and the cute storytelling. Great job! :)
On a side note, would you like to have the game translated to French for free? I think it could be a nice additional feature to a desktop version.
Excellent game with a charming story, excellent visuals (love the abstract shapes of player & NPCs and the beautiful backgrounds)
Is there any chance for a desktop version (preferably linux x64 version ;-) ). I prefer to download excellent indie games since web versions can easily vanish....
Wonderful little story. Reminds me of the old "Another World", the DOS version, that came out so long ago. Fantastic! Please keep it going. I hope it is easy to code. If it is long enough it would certainly warrant putting it up on an App store and going commercial. Great job!
Nice! Short trip, but definitely worth the few minutes :-) I like how you made me feel for every destination and the people who are visiting. Nice story building! And even thought it was a bit of a weird ending, still, it was surprising enough to make me think a little bit. This could be the start of a really good adventure!
