love the music and vibes, would love to see the story continue

Damn, I really, really loved this game. I really enjoyed the journey and have 0 bad things to say about it. All of the characters were really cute and I found the journey really compelling! Thank you for creating this!


Youve got mail! And its a cute platformer.

Get free Wi-fi everywhere you go...

very cool idea, loved this game!

Very cute little game. I thought the atmosphere was great, and I'd love to see it expanded on. I don't really see platformers in this style, so it's nice to have that as the front-and-center mechanic.

A very unique looking chill platformer with a great story

I love everything about this game!!!!!!!!!!!!! The music, the characters, the ambience, everything was so good and it put a smile on my face.  I thought I was gonna end up playing another depressing liminal game that made my soul feel empty, as most low poly games do... but this one was so happy and I am grateful for it coming into fruition :o) 

Beat this game in under 30 minutes. I even found the secret free WI-FI app in the recycle bin. Not sure what it does. Also nice detail adding the mono and data folders aka: The games data folders.

OH MY GODD this game is soo good!! i had a blast playing it, the soundtrack and visuals and world/character design are all amazing! super props to u for making something so super cool!!

THIS GAME HOLY HELL I LOVE IT SO MUCH The characters look silly too ^^/pos

Loved the use of key-framed animation on the models as well as the shifting geometry of some of the levels.

It was really cool!

awesome game, absolutely loved it! the visuals are very fun, the gameplay is also great! very silly :)

Included Somnium at 58:35 as part of a compilation of game's with unsettling worlds.

I like this game and i found the secret.


I LOVE IT!! I like the simple and easy gameplay and the visuals are amazing! great job!!!!

amazing game, feels so nostalgic!


super cute game, i loved it


I bet this is a cool game but I'm sad cause its not for android

This game was awesome!!!!


Love the visuals!! 


For some reason the START button is not working! What do i do?

5/5 One of my best experiences playing a game in some abstract world. I really liked this one - the main idea under the story is unusual and clever : what happens when I send an email? Also this project is well executed. Everything works well as expected and the player controller is really smooth. The main aesthetic is gorgeous. It is confusing because you used some clean textures with sometimes hard pixelization (especially for the letters). Totally unusual, but a nice environment. The way you manage the pseudo OS is amazing. There are so many options and features! I felt exactly what I have in mind thinking about some old Operating Systems from the 80s. I could buy a game like yours. You made my day. Thank you for this weird experience. I wish you the best ++

Yo this was super cool! I loved the retro cluttered feel and simple but well executed controls. Also it was super cool to see ASL used by the King. I'm gonna go and make my own platformer now, I'm feeling very inspired thanks to Somnium. 

will this ever be available on iOS mobile? After seeing the animation I have to play the game✨

I dont played it but it already looks so cool and creative! All like in Ena style (Find JoelG on youtube if u dont know who is Ena)


This is a wonderful game! A PentiumPunk style First Person Platformer and Collectathon, a wonderful short game. I had a lot of fun! And also a fantastic piece of proof that First Person Platforming is totally possible, if you're careful in how you construct your game world.


I know this game is a bit old, but man, it still holds up great! The gameplay is a 9/10 the story and characters are 10/10. and overall, it is just a tremendously polished title with nothing to complain about! keep up the great work, Luke! 


Ok, let's be serious. This is the best retro-like surreal game out there. The character design, the landscapes... truly a dream. Also made me remind of ENA's bizarre worlds like any other game did. 10/10.


i loved this game, thank you

uh im sorry but how do i download it after making a itch.io account? everything i find when i look up about it just says"press the download button" but i dont see one anywher

there should be an install red button at the bottom right. You can play the through itch. 


Awesome game! beautiful aesthetic and fun characters


Cool game, i loved the ENA inspired aesthetics


This games atmosphere switches up a lot, which I love.  Sometimes quirky, but other times dark.  I legit thought something would be chasing me at the last section of the game.  Playing through, I felt like I've seen this all before... then I got to the credits, Joel G.  Also, love the setting of the game, which takes place in a windows xp, I think.  And the best part?  A working notepad and terminal in the starting screen.  I wonder what happens if I click empty recycle bin?  I'm too scared to try XD.


this is legit one of my favorite games ever! its really pretty, the character and landscape designs are really cool and creative and its just fun in general! i could play this again and again and it never gets boring, love it :D

now its familiar like the character having a nostalgic things,a blue skin on her left side, and a yellow skin on her left side... 

 just say anything lol!


i wish there were more games like this. Very good game!!
