omg i saw this on twitter and HAD to play!!! it was short and cute and beautiful and i loved every part of it <33 really worth it! <3

Sorry for the late reply, but thank you soo much!! Your comment makes me so happy <33 wow :)

Played this game today and I gotta say it was really cute. well done

thank you!! <3 :') 

I got a error but this time in dolchio! When i try to go left untill gap the game crashed with an error! The error says Failed to load: audio/se/Cursor1.ogg did i do something wrong?

Oh wow that's weird, I'm so sorry about that! 

Can you please let me know where in the game this happened and what actions you did so I can check it out? Thanks for letting me know! :)

So i was going right to see if there is grandma or not but suddenly it came up with that error it could be a glitch or a bug

That's interesting... I downloaded, extracted, and tested the game out again myself and I didn't run into this issue. 

Maybe it's a glitch with how it extracted or downloaded onto your computer since that type of error only comes up when there's a missing file. Can you try downloading the game again? 

This is so weird, I'm sorry!

[SPOILER (just in case)]

I really like how Dolchio was so naive at the beginning, letting himself to get tricked by people to being able to trick the automaton king himself. I'm a sucker for character developments like this. :')

Thank you so much! I was a little worried that maybe the character development was a little weak so it makes me so happy to read your comment!! :) 

I love it, thank you so much. I played this in between my exams, the game was a great way to de-stress, really, thank you.

Oh wow thank you!! And thank you for taking the time to play this game :) Good luck with your exams! 

I liked the overall comfy feeling of the game, with a likable cast of characters. Although I didn't see the plot twist coming so kudos to that. I released at the perfect time where we still have Christmas on our minds. (Despite me playing it a week later)

Aww thank you so much!! :)

Very late to say this, but again, here to say the game is fantastic! I enjoyed every bits of it. Not bad! I also LP'd this, however I don't have a commentary of it so yeah.

Still, pretty good!

Aww thank you!! And thank you so much for playing and taking the time to do a LP :)


Really enjoyed playing the entirety of Dolchio, apologies for all of my mispronunciations of names of people & places! :D 


Thank you soo much for playing this game as well!! :) 

I just watched your let's play and I really enjoyed it! :D And your comments at the end really touched my heart, thank you! :')

A little late, but I just finished the game and it was fantastic! Story and characters were both incredible and the atmosphere really screams Christmas!!! I'm a sucker for found family themes so this was like *chef's kiss*. The darker undertones also reminded me of old children's movies that are terrifying in retrospect and gave me nostalgic feelings. All the vibes were there and the ending was so wholesome I wanted to cry my eyes out with a cup of cocoa wehhh 10/10 !!

Waaah thank you so much!! :'D I'm so glad you enjoyed the game! Wow your comment really made my day haha

I just finished the game, which i casually found on the home page of the site, and i enjoyed it. It was really good so i felt the need to leave a comment. The art was great, so were the characters, the story and the christmas/snow theme which i personally love. Also the soundtrack, which i think is very important, was amazing and suited perfectly. I have not encountered any bug. Sorry for bad english, from italy.


I'm so happy! Thank you so much for your comment and for taking the time to play my game! :) 

This was veeeeeery cute :3 I like all the char so far! 
My gameplay if you want to see :3


Aww thank you so much for playing!! :)

I love your voice acting haha it's great and made me laugh (in a good way) --I really enjoyed it,  I'm looking forward to the next part! :D

AAAAA right when im making this comment, tears almost started falling out. Even though it's a short but pretty long gameplay, I really enjoyed it! The plot of the story, the art and the characters are very good!! Im very satisfied after playing this and that ending after the credits made me a bit emotional. I look forward to more games that you might create in the future :D

Awww thank you sooo much!! I'm super happy to hear that wow!  :)   

this was sm fun to play!!!!!!1  so cozy!!!!!!!!

aww thank you! <3 And thank you so much for playing!! :)

Um, it's a pretty good game, but like you mentioned, the game freezes at the sewers!

Thank you!! ;w; <33 

And yeah it should be fixed by now! I've updated the file so it should be good to go! I'm really sorry about that :')

This was such a lovely game to play! The art is adorable and clearly has a lot of time and care put into it- the lore and the worldbuilding is also amazing. I did find one typo though, when the real king says "enough," at one of the end scenes, it's misspelled as "eniugh." Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Thank you so much for taking the time to play my game!! :) I'm so happy to know that you had a great time playing!!

And thank you for letting me know about the typo!! I've gone ahead and fixed it! ^^

I didn't finished it yet but I love it already!! The music is so beautiful, the characters are so wholesome and lovable and I really love those lovely drawn scenes.

I even started a small (german) Let's Play series on my channel: 

Keep up that awesome work! I look forward to your future projects. c:

Oh wow thank you so much for your kind words! That really means so much to me. :) 

And that makes me so happy, I'm def gonna check out your let's play!

I'll just put a comment thread here for any bug or glitch update :)

I believe the game still works if you copy and paste your save files folder from the old game version into the updated folder, but if not please let me know at what part of the game you were at to provide you a game with a save file up to that point ^^

Dec. 25:

  • Fixed repeating cutscene in a warm town.
  • Fixed game freezing bug in late-game scene.
  • Fixed some typos.

Did this game freezing bug appear in the sewers in Frost? This is where my game froze. I'm glad if this one is fixed now.

Yes! I'm really sorry about that :')
