oh in prison for 30 years for aggressive writing

yes. TnT

this is amazing! I love the twist so much it shocked me lol,

 I had tried to use GB Studio a few months ago but couldnt figure out how to add music to it other than the sample it gave me. 

definatly going to relook into how to use it, also going to rate this game 10/10 ^^

Thank you for your perfect score.
I'm glad you liked the game.

In the new GB studio you can make the music directly in the editor. It's a bit buggy, But with a bit of reading the documentation, and some trial and error, it seems to work. :)

I don't know if it's easier just to use the hUGE music editor directly?

Of course ^^

I have no clue tbh music development and editing is not my strong suite lmao

Do you have any future game plans? I cant wait to see what you do next, also do you mind if I make fanart of the game? If so do you have an instagram bc thats where I would post it if you allowed it.

I have some loose game ideas, but I'm not sure which one to go with yet. :)

Feel free to draw fanart of the game if you like. I would love to see it. :) However I don't have an instagram.

Alright, is there a certain way you would like me to send you my fanart? or should I leave it in the comment section

If you do make some, maybe you could post it here in the comments? or a link to it? :)

The characters where so cute, i feel so bad for ranting them out >:"( This game is so cute and well made though, thank you!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it, and also that you felt bad for them. TuT

Thanks a lot!
I'm glad you liked it. :)
