In psychology, a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy is when an individual, convinced or fearful of the occurrence of future events, alters his behavior in such a way as to end up causing such events.

Unsurprisingly, this cyclical nature of self-fulfilling prophecies can play a role in developing and deepening Depression.

Thank you! I think that each of us falls into this false step in our lives. Maybe that's why it was so simple to tell a story like this.

This is really one of the best Bitsy games i've played recently... Beautiful and Sad, a piece of pixelated poetry!

As a Dark Souls fan, having your own little game defined beautiful and sad sounds just like reaching a personal goal! Thank you so much!

Such a great story and quite a sad message. The way you get to know more about the story by going further back and repeating everything together was creative and I really enjoyed this game :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thanks for your kind feedback! I will definitely take a look at this oportunity!

The game is a  bit slow (I don't know if it's just my browser though.) But it's brilliant game and I like the message... I liked how you get new info each time as you play the same parts over and over.

Thank you so much! I am happy to hear it because I wanted to create the feeling of being trapped in a repetitive dysfunctional pattern.
