this is one of the coolest indie game i've ever played;

you did a great job on this one, Dev!

(+1)

I like the concept but I would've loved to see more of this game. 

(+2)

this game was very interesting to say the least haha! What amazes me about you creators the fact that you put so much time into something to creat such interesting games and different concepts but anywho, if you’d like to check my gameplay of your game I left a link in my comment, have a great day!

I knew I was in for a weird game, but I never would have guessed where it ended up going!

(+1)

hey man this was surprisingly good, thanks for the play

(+2)

I've never felt this level of appreciation at ikea before.

(+1)

So funky and weird! Loved the little touches, the AI was actually one of the few I could enjoy in video games! Can't wait to see more from the creator! It was the third game I checked out in this weird game compilation!

(+2)

Really inmersive experience, great work on the house interiors. Enjoyed the final turn. Thank you for this artpiece.

(+2)

bom mas o jogo ta um pouco curto

I do like a certain kind of insect, but not when they are the size of the earth... great game and I hope to see more of this type of game from you :) 

(+2)

hell yeah

why oh why can't this be released for all the platforms out there? it's annoying to dual-boot just to play a game especially since with unity it's literally usually one click to support everyone..

I beg you to do a 32 bits PC version or ill die, i need to play this.

im downloading 64 bit on a laptop lol

(+1)

It's so Philip Dick-esque. Good, very good. I praise your work, well done.

(+2)

I hate having a bad PC because i cant play this :(

(+2)

Another day, another video made. 
Still a bit upset I didn't get to see the dog

Alright, I've played this game, and here are my thoughts.  This is one really deep game, a game that got me to open up on some of my social issues (and a few fears).  The choices were interesting, but I often wished there could of been more to chose from.  I do think it was a dirty trick that you didn't tell us what we were choosing until we chose since I thought that the image of the ocean was really a forest.  for a short experience it was a good one, and one that I do recommend, so keep up the good work!!

(+1)

Played the game. I really liked it.

(+2)

Great game! Had so much fun playing and recording it. It had a lot of interesting quirks and assets that made the mystery-solving a fun experience.

The ending was great! I didn't hear what the narrator said at that part the first time around, which had me going on like a 2-minute monologue trying to figure out what it all meant, haha! 

Great stuff devs! Looking forward to more projects.

Please check out the video and my channel: VladMan.
Thank you!

(btw this game was recorded before you guys posted about the secret)

(-2)

i thought this was one mb but now i know its a gb D:

i did it and it fun it look like it a vr

(+5)

strong yes

i would download but for some reason it only shows up as a folder for me

(+1)

When pressing 'download', you should ideally receive a file named 'endling-win.zip'. You need to extract that using software like 7-Zip or WinRAR, then locate the file named 'endling.exe' in the folder :). Hope that helps.

(1 edit) (+1)

you can actually just extract files inside of file explorer without using third-party applications. Just sayin'

(+1)

bro this game is amazing It took me a while to throw and find out the ending but its amazing what are you doing reading this comment play it you too creators  

(+4)

i just tried this game even though it is pretty short it has a really creative story that i love, i wish i could support you!

(+1)

I know

Una palabra: Oro

Este "juego" es una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido a pesar de su simplicidad, o lo rápido que es terminarlo.

10/10  en especial para los que buscan algo más profundo que los juegos "populares".

Sólo faltaría que pudiera cambiar el idioma de audio y uffff, de todos modos, el ingles que usan no es muy complicado.

non ho ancora capito cosa devi fare pero mi sembra gia bello

Interesting proposal, I have enjoyed seeing how the game was changing, the only downside is that I expected something strong for the end, but I liked it. I have loved the Voyager references, Carl Sagan would be happy to see it.

(+6)

this game is amazing and I love it! shed a tear of how incredible this game was, it may be short but i can say that it is my favorite or one of my favorite games. have a lovely day!

(+5)

The constant referencing to the Voyager Golden Record with it's paintings, I found to be interesting in this game.


If you don't know, it was a 6 hour long vinyl record sent from scientists into the space, so that if aliens find and play it, it will represent the music and sounds of the earth. 

The paintings in the game (even mathematical sequences) are from the package too. It's still probably flying somewhere in space.

(+1)

Where meatballs?

(+2)

cool :]

(+3)

So many choices! If given options in life, what would you chose? Red? Blue? Dogs? Spiders...?

(+1)

Thank you so much for the video! The entire team really enjoyed watching it!

(+2)

You're very welcome! It's a great game and I kinda hope it gets turned into something bigger. The concept is great!
