Only the word "MASTERPIECE" can do justice to this poem! Such beauty, such depth of emotion! You managed to make me immerse myself so much when I was reading it.I cried when it was finished😭.I love Leda and now I'm hoping you make a game with her as the protagonist (Could you do it please🥺🙏). Ah! And also the UI aesthetics fit the atmosphere of the poem so much.


Thank you so much! My apologies for such a long delay in replying - your kind words are as dear to me now as when I first read them. I appreciate your playing and your feedback!
