A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

"But lately all the roots from your garden have grown,
They cut through my skin, they broke my heart
and all I have left are bones."

Lyrics: 

Long ago all I wanted was to build a home

but I didn't know how to do it so I just hoped

Then you came

I let you plant the seeds of your fears 

let you come and water them for years and then we waited

But lately all the roots from your garden have grown

they have grown

They cut through my skin, they broke my heart

and all I have left are bones

bones

So take them 

and build yourself a home

With all my tears I could make rivers and seas

Use my last breath to be the summer breeze

And take my eyes, make with them two shiny stars

They will guide you when everything else is dark

But lately all the roots from your garden have grown

they have grown

They cut through my skin, they broke my heart

and all I have left are bones

bones

So take them 

and build yourself a home

Please just take them

and build yourself a home

Please take them

and build yourself a home

What a lovely little experience this was. Thanks for making art.

hi not sure if this will get a response but i am getting this weird glitch where as soon as i click the game crashes? once i click through the credits and the gun appears if i fire it, the game crashes. im playing on Mac OS 10.13.6 (very old i know) and i would love know if the game's just not built for my old computer or if it's something fixable because i would love to play this game :] 

Beautiful!

i have been deeply moved by this experience. thank you

loved this little thing, but i wish i could also just get a mp3 of the song so that i can experience it outside the bounds of the game. have you guys uploaded it anywhere? cuz i dont see it, granted im extremely tired so i could just be blind to it

I grabbed it from the game's files https://www.mediafire.com/file/blczpau0egjqesg/

Absolutely stunning. I had no idea what to expect because I went in blind and it was an extremely cathartic playthrough. One I will be experiencing again and again. Thank you for creating this. 

Beautiful
