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.

The message was quite sad but true and it really made me thing, the music also set the mood perfectly.

That was very meaningful

I'm so glad to hear that! Thank you!

Really awesome how well you portrayed this


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.


Thank you, Yumahru! :)


Thanks! I enjoyed your entry too! ^_^
