Oh my god, I was totally mindblown after finishing the game, and I've never felt this way for quite some time. Great job done there! Personally I wasn't very comfortable with the idea of AmorBots (was it spelled this way?) but that's just conservative little me. Jude made me crack up a little, and I really have to applaud your use of sexuality and innocence and whatnot in this game. If you made a sequel I'd totally play it over and over again xDD

Don't feel bad about feeling bad about the AmorBots. XD I mean, if Autumn is uncomfortable with them I don't expect you to be. XD

I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! X3

Oh my gosh I cried 3x during your novel. It was just so sad but a good solution at the end. I couldn't tell was Zoe a girl or a guy? Your story was stunning. I love Jude, he's hot. His character is funny, and enjoyable.
Can't wait to read your next Darlings Lost.
Good luck on the next one!

Don't cry! I send in the crying brigade with tissues and hugs and cookies!

Lol, Zoe's a girl. XD Someone asked that once before, that surprises me. She's just tall and Rick's just short.

Thank you so much! :D

This really is a standout story... It's hard for me to get completely immersed in something, but I completely lost track of time from the start to the end of my playthrough, and that's praiseworthy. It had a great atmosphere to it, it had a fantastic flow, and you even managed to make your robots into real characters. I am eagerly anticipating your next project.

This game. This game almost made me cry - and I am not a crier. This game made me start researching robots for my sci-fi novel for the first time in ages - I fell in love with robotics all over again. This game inspired me to start learning how to use Ren'py and to seek an artist so that I can get crackin' on my own game - a game which I'll try to elevate to the same standard as this lovely, lovely game.

Thank you. Thank you for making That Cheap and Sacred Thing. I've recced it to everyone I know, and I'd play it again myself if not for the fear of suddenly bursting into loud, undignified sobs at the ending.

It was beautiful.

I downloaded your game, and was so moved that I had to make an account to tell you how wonderful it was! This is a story that's going to stay with me. I'm so glad I got the chance to play through your VN. Thank you!
