Oh my.... thanks so much!!  (>w<)/

Edit : The representation of the character is nice, I guess... (because I wonder  if it is intentionally that blanket covered The Sandman and blocked the reader upon seeing his/her expression and kept him/her mysterious? :D ).

It has interesting idea of plot about the folktales of Sandman (who guess that The Sandman is kind of a suspicious but also an easy-going spirit that could talk leisurely, or rather smoothly, with our insomniac lady xD ), but ends brieftly; leaving the reader up to intepretation of this encouter.

That is indeed the reason~! The blanket was also supposed to render him invisible against the night sky, but the art for the game never got that far~

Thank you for taking the time to come back to review!


A very well polished experience, the art along with little touches like the music/sound playing in line with the conversation dots. Also the Sandman seemed like a very interesting character!

Thanks so much! Our programmer worked really hard on that feature!


Really nice art and interesting theme!
