Holy crap. This hit home in so many ways. I don't know what I expected exactly, but what I got was a thought-provoking masterpiece. I see myself in Ally very easily, as I've unfortunately been in similar positions. To those who are domestic violence survivors, this game gives us a chance to reflect on our experiences head-on, through the lens of an outside perspective. It feels 1st person in the sense you are directly interacting with the environment, but 3rd person in the sense that you're examining another life play out right before your eyes. CURTAIN effortlessly depicts toxic relationships to a "T", and, as others have pointed out, has a firm grasp on the nuances and contradictions that happen in these scenarios. Highly, highly recommend if you have a half hour to spare.
This game explores themes and concepts with a nuance that very little media is capable to, which is why I appreciate it so much. Specially in the terms of the family, which we see a lot of polarizing depictions in media, either being fully against or fully supportive of their queer kids. Overall it hit a bit too close to home, but I think that's what makes it great! It is able to show a facet of the young adult experience that many go through, given it be abusive relationships, distant families, friends growing apart or financial insecurity. I'm just happy this game exists, as, again, very few are able to be this genuine and raw with their art.
I can't get this game to install via the itch launcher- it doesn't let me select a package and throws a build error when I click install.
after all these years this game has always stuck with me as one that really pushed my understanding of what games can express as an artform
This game rings true to life. Thank you for making it.
A razor sharp observation on troubled relationships that gave me no where to hide.
Me cried, me sad

VERY GOOD GAME I LOVED IT KEEP UP WITH THE GOOD WORK
I'm going to approach this from the point of view of someone who engages in analysis of video games as literature, which I do. So, from that perspective, FUUUUUUUUUCK. This was so upsetting. This was upsetting in a perfect way. Talk about a hostile atmosphere. I love the use of language as a low-level antagonist in itself, separating Kaci from her words as though she is some sort of boss, spewing these crushing blows. Curtain is heartbreaking, but it's also incredibly relatable. I hate the experience, and I loved how it worked out.
Loved this so much.
