A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

a lunum waits

written by Carrie Z

This is a brief visual novel I made in just over a week, using Ren'Py. It uses public domain paintings by early 20th-century Lithuanian painter Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis for the handful of pictures. The story, such as it is, is loosely based on a dream I might have had, and some of the text is transcribed directly from my dreams. Some of the sounds are field recordings, others are sounds I created.

I was like 12 the last time I tried to make a game, and I’m not used to publicly sharing things I write, so I welcome any feedback about any aspect of this thing. I rushed the production of this a bit to submit it for the Self-Care Game Jam 2 - thank you to j hayley and the other participants for inspiring me to try making a game! This rush means the interface is a bit sloppy, and there’s no character art. Maybe I’ll add some sort of character art later, though maybe it’s better like this where you have to imagine the characters. Either way, I will probably make a revised version at some point to do some text revisions and make the interface and visuals cleaner.

I hope you enjoy!
