A short visual novel I made for a game jam in the context of an illustration class.

Playtime may range from 10 - 25 minutes.

A  little heads-up: English is not my first language, so the choice of words may seem a bit off at times.

If you find any grammatical mistakes or passages that could be worded better, feel free to tell me! Any other constructive criticism is welcome as well.

Such a precious game with adorable, detailed art. The story is cute and simple, holding a great weight and meaning all the same; it's inspiring! 

Now for the more informal comments on this game :p


No but seriously, the way she's drawn is SUPER adorable!!!

Also, I just wanted to let you know that this game really spoke to me in alot of ways. I have had recently broken down, in a way, and succumbed to my then undiagnosed social anxiety that had built up over years of harrassement and bullying. I've been a hermit since, only going out the house for therapy and mandatory exams, so the message of this game really resonated with me and I truly appreciate the inspiration that it gave me <3 

Gently, slowly making my way off my little island!

Nice game I just wish that I can skip through the dialogue and get to the choices faster.

beautiful story and art!

The art in this is just gorgeous!

And great storytelling with those characters ^_^

oh my goodness gracious i love this game.


I didn't expect such a cute game with different endings. Thanks for this, it's awesome

To every hermit crabs: try and make the best. Take care



Hey there! Nice game. I like the illustrations the most, and the topic of the game is relatable. Keep it up! :)


Your writing style really flows well when reading. I definitely need an Abigull in life to kick me in the a** sometimes. 

Lovely work ~


the constant overthinking is so relatable. I love it! and the art is beautiful as always <3 I'd just love to have a printed comicbook made by you. 

Aaah thank you, this means so much coming from you!!

This is a game about enjoying life on a deserted island, befriending a seagull named Abigull, and letting the days pass by peacefully. Until something shiny appears in the ocean...

I loved the illustrations and the narration so much! I would play any game that you release with this quality of design!


Aww, thank you so much!! This really motivates me to work on something new!


I am so happy to hear that it motivates you! I am looking forward to playing your new game, whenever you release it!

Also, I found some English typo throughout the game (the minutes follow my video). I hope that helps!

Apparently 1:20

Definitely 3:27

Pique 10:12

Sleepless 12:26
