This is lovely, I really want to applaud the thoughtfulness and care for the audience that shows up in things like the content warnings and accessibility options. Also just really well written and affecting. Thank you!
This was so sweet! I got a little misty when Jessica and Amira made up at the end, ngl. :') I loooved the UI design - I've been trying to update my own Ren'py game, and it has made me appreciate a good UI so much more. Also a big fan of the backgrounds. Nothing wrong with the classic "stock photo run through an oil paint filter" VN look, but it was really cool to see something more distinctive. And the little animated trailer for Call Me Cera at the end, wow! Never seen anything like that in a game before, it was so cool. Just wishlisted it on Steam!
Thank you so much for your kind words and for playing our game! Please tell a friend :)
I was going to say this on twitter but I think this is a better place:
when the final scene started - just after Jessica and Amira are reunited - I started to cry so much and couldn't stop until after the credits showed up.
I don't know exactly why this happened, but I thank you so much for this experience not just in storytelling but in widening lots of points of my worldview.
This was really inspiring. I hope I can tell meaningful stories such as this one someday.
My computer showed trojan Win32/Wacatac.B!ml is this real or a false positive?
It's a false positive. If you follow the instructions above, you'll be able to work around most of the anti-virus overreacting. The game is safe and does not contain a trojan. Apologies for the inconvenience and any scare you might have had.
Thank you for playing!
Makes me wish I had a food truck like this near me! Lovely story, I enjoyed hearing each character's motivations from their own perspectives. Plenty of wisdom in here. Bravo!
Maybe art style isn't my favourite (though I love these "chalk" backgrounds), maybe it feels a bit too cutesy at times, but I really enjoyed my first playthrough, even though it was cut short by a "wrong turn" somewhere. Have to try again.
Also, love how texts from Jess' mum are actually in Korean.
A lovely game overall. Well-researched with lots of accurate representation that doesn't feel forced because of the world-building. The choices are many and you feel that they make an impact on the ending. And there are three of them, all distinct! The art is beautiful. I can't wait for Call Me Cera!
I will never not take the opportunity to say how well researched this game is. It is incredible. And it taught me so much about Ramadan! And most importantly narrative is really great!!
Loved this! Was so cute and comfy!
Amazing game! definitely going to recommend it to all my friends. I love the representation of different races, religions, and sexualities show just in this small chunk. amazing game!
I love this game so much!!!
What a lovely and wholesome experience! I love how you created such a cozy feel for a visual novel - it really made that one particular scene scare me a bit. I relate too much to Amira for my own good, I think. Thank you for making this game!
will buy tomorrow
This looks dope! Excited to play it soon.
