hi- great game! i have been wondering what is the song that plays at the beginning when you load in? can you send a link to it if you can? i really like it
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Just a sketch. Five minute experience. I hope to extend it someday.

Hey hey, there's no song, a friend of mine had recorded a short sample for the game a few years ago. Sorry.
interesting but also depressing game...
but besides simulating what the life of a hikikomori looks like, there isn't much to the game itself.
there aren't many things to interact with (would have been interesting if you added the "purchase food online" function to the game and added a bathroom the character could use), no "secret ending" one could try to achieve (*wink* *wink* window *wink* *wink*) and there is an invisible wall beyond the door.
i noticed some typos in the texts that come up when you look outside of the door such as "What if i say something stupig"
off-topic btw but after reading the email in the game and taking a look on your twitter account, i was kinda happy to find out that you are gay :)
Yeah, "stupiG" is kinda local meme already. But I usually do not debug my stuff a lot. Anyway thanks for pointing out those little things that should be fixed!
About the secret ending -- that's not how we should deal with our problems, so that's not an option!!1
And yeah, I'm gay and depressed a little, and so are my games. Which is quite stereotypical but there's not much I can do about it on my own (I think).
"that's not how we should deal with our problems"
i agree but this is a game, not real life.
i'm just suggesting ways to add more interactivity, i'm not forcing them on you.
>gay and depressed
just like meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (i mean, i got it under control and i'm a half-gay)
also i don't think it's a stereotype, integrating your emotions and feelings in your games makes them feel more alive, more "from the bottom of one's soul" so to speak.
so you don't have to worry about that much haha
Yeah, about your suggestions -- I like them, it's just that I am lazy at the moment :D And anyway thank you! Oh, and it is so inspiring to find a person who kinda understands me, all that feelings and game stuff :3
Saw Solitudo a while back and finally decided to play it. It's short, but interesting, and gives the player something to think about. And the graphical style looks really nice as well, which I feel helps the overall theme that seems present. Something more detailed may have made a message too heavy.Good job, dev.
You call it an experience, I call it an fps tutorial
I made a video about your game a time ago and i want to show you it. Is in spanish but have subtitles if is a problem. Enjoy it!
Hice un video de este juego en español y pueden disfrutarlo justo aquí.
You have to say "It is spanish but you can turn subtitles on if it's a problem".
is this based on "hikikomori" in japanese word?
really nice and calming and has another side to the game which i like.
Great little project! Looks great and realy conveys the atmosphere.
thsi is the most amazing game ever! im not even joking as soon as i entered all i wanted to do is eplore and move the things around. im pretty sure this game took effort but do you think you could ever create it where the girl finally gets the courage to goe out in to the world and then explores there?? if not thats honestly ok i still adore this game
Hey hey, thanks! I am actually working on a game of similar genre, you can check my social media like tw if you want to follow :")
how did you make this game?
i have 52 hours on this game. i dont even know how lol. its a great game try to make more like it
oh you are funny。i love your game
I didn't open the door....I'm an idiot haha
im not the only one who tried to get out of the room by moving towards the words right??? it was an upsettingly relatable game which was simple but also meaningful. thanks for this, and i hope you extend this someday too!
I did a run through off this last year. Here ya go and good luck.
I really liked your game! It ran great and the graphic style was different and appealing. I wished there was a bit more content, though! I hope you "extend it someday" as well :)
Made you a Lumps Play for it. Lumps Plays are Let's Plays with pop-up bubble comments, you'll like it :)
Cheers and thanks so much for making the game and I hope you continue. 🍻
It's an interesting concept of an idea of how it goes in some peoples lives...
An interesting little idea, and very relatable to me- but also helps me compare how I am now to the anxious little antisocial I was but a few months ago~
pretty great, but a little laggy. keep up the good work!
Trying it out,once I played it ,I will reply to my own comment saying what I think about it.
the note said there is a bathroom in this game but i can't find it i wanna to find it ;(
That's a wonderful thing! I love it so much
i really enjoyed this game! its really good how this can actually relate to real life! just... not good when people leave you :( anyways really good job on creating this game!
Hi! This game is a really cool game! I like the concept of the game and would be awesome if more features are added and I made a video on youtube in INDONESIAN! Check it out! TERIMA KASIH!
did a let's play on this game nice game :)
Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I played your game, and I made a let's play video of it.
I thought this game was really beautiful and meaningful.
Thank you for making it.
How to make the game even more depressing: when you outside and go to place where window should supposedly be, you see that the street view is only an image from some projector.
I have an idea for the voices around that label in the air: playing audiorecording of Josiph Brodskiy reading his poem "Don't leave your room, don't make a mistake". Or maybe in the hall, when you look at the door.
Love this game!! It's really fun and realatable, sometimes. But one thing you should add to the game is a city that we can go explore in! I think that would be super fun!!
Love it! So meaningful and pretty!
