This looks incredible. My type of game in every way. Attractive play length as well for this type of game. No filler, just delivering the feeling and narrative and getting the job done. Major Silent Age vibes. Can't wait to play it

This may be the most beautiful game I've ever played. Stopped frequently just to drink in the ambience, which it does spectacularly. The story is, uh... lacking? It's hampered somewhat by an understandable but sometimes unwieldy translation. And there's very little by way of resolution.

It's replaced a paywall with a geowall! There are certain features you can't access unless you're physically IN Naples, which is annoying but makes perfect sense. I don't think these are all that important, so it's more interesting than truly frustrating.

Well-recommended for the aesthetics alone; an hour is plenty of playtime for what it is; I'll probably play it through one more time and delete it.

amazing little game

Very beautiful educational adventure. Don't fret, you're not forced to learn anything if you don't want to. I'm looking forward to having the quiet hour or two this game deserves. (it's definitely not something to play while on the bus or the metro)
