For some reason I never uploaded this playthrough. But here it is, many months later!

Oooo, thank you for playing my game! I hope you liked it (I can't tell since the video doesn't seem to be working?) XD

I'll fix it when I have a free minute

Thank you for the video! <3 Just so you know, This isn't the demo. it's a very short title made for O2A2 where I was restricted to a 1k word limit. So, that made it an incredibly short game. XD


Yeah when I saw your response to invadersoup about your other game coming out in September and thought you were talking about this game. 

Really enjoyed it and would have liked to have seen a little more but guess we just have to wonder what else Nino might have done to get out.


Glad you liked it. :) 

And don't worry, you might see more of Nino in the future. ;)


Aww... I love how Nino could easily be a creepy puppet, but comes off as a dork. Or, like... a dorka whale. Either way, Nice work!


Thank you! :)

Hello! I was about to download your other game, "Another Day", but it seems to have disappeared? Will I be able to play it in the future?

(I apologize if this comes as a bother, I don't have twitter and so this seemed to be the best way of contacting you! ^-^;)


Hey there! I made the page for the game but it's not out yet. It's going to be out in September. The page is back up so I recommend following it so you can get updated when its released!

Sounds good, thank you so much! I will definitely be checking out its release in September, and thank you again for the quick response!
