Recently, I felt stuck with my writing and today decided to try this solo-journaling game.

It feels whimsical and very refreshing. Thank you for making this. I might find someone to try the long-distance multiplayer variant.


One typo - - when running low on magica materia the instructions say to reshuffle the spades instead of the clubs. Gonna try this soon!


Enjoyed this little game quite a lot. It's light in theme weight and mechanics, with whimsical fantasy elements. Nice also for ingredient drawing prompts even solo,  as well as for practicing another language. Like a comfy, comforting blanket.


Thank you for the head's-up (and the kind review)! I've corrected the file.
