The world has ended and most everyone is dead, guess it's time to fulfill an old promise to an old flame.

My submission to the Mech Bitsy Jam and also the Emotional Mecha Jam! I made this in the course of three days with a very loose idea and a couple pieces of art.

Has brief themes of war and sadness and death, with a couple of pixel corpses.

Music made in BeepBox.

I fell in love with this, the art and the story are so beautiful! Thank you for making this

Having screenshots would give a bit more context on how it plays

Wow! This game made me think about my life! Very good!

It's really something when you could tell such a (bittersweet?doom? plaintive?) melancholic story like this just by pixel and few words...

and some people say that video games are not art. thank you

i love the music


i loved it!! the music is perfect, and the world is so compelling. i want to read a whole graphic novel of this!

Dose this game end when I see something like a big monster and something look like three eyes?


The ending should be (if I remember right) a big monster and a big mech.

Does it end at the bridge? Or the game is not working properly?

The game does not end at the bridge, you keep moving right from there and there is a second set of rooms. I just tested it and it seemed fine so it may be something on your end, sorry.

I see, thanks!^^

siiiick, I'm really into the like ~Love so hard the world has to end~ thing. The final sequence was extremely rad too 


I've played this more than probably any other game on, or ever, for that matter.  Whenever I'm talking abt indie games I always somehow bring this up as an example of how amazing a thing can be created with simple software.  It's got such a distinct vibe to it -- fuzzy and soft and sad and nostalgic, and I can't get enough of it.

Simply incredible. Loved the imagery and writing! Epic. 🌈

This was super-gorgeous, thank you so much for sharing it!

This is amazing. A beautiful story told with beautiful art and beautiful music. <3 Loved every moment.

This is really beautiful. Thank you.

Felt the emotion in the game. I also enjoyed the music ^-^

Caeth, ya done it again 👏


Good but confusing , are you the one who receive the radio messages ? Or the one who send them ?


Hi! You are the one sending the messages, the messages in the first two rooms (the starting room and the room with the plants) are meant to indicate this, specifically. Sorry that it was confusing!


Thanks for your answer , it's not the game itself that is confusing in reality , this is just that english isn't my native language.


Love this game, packs a lot of impact for something you can experience in 5 minutes!


YESSSSS this is absolutely mega. 


wait it's good but i'm confused 

oh thank you! what was confusing? maybe I can help clear it up.


There's a quality to all of your games that I can't really describe. They have such great and specific atmospheres, the writing all just feels real, and honest, and resonates with me. It's all very Caeth! And this has Caeth in spades!



ohhh this is lovely :')

thank you :) <3

I really liked the scenery design and the music! Some Bitsy games I've played are lacking in both. Thank you for making this.

ah thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it :D


oh god this really made me feel things. incredible work as always. 

ahhhhh thank you so much for the kind words! :>


This game was great, and the (sorta) twist and backstory were great! Graphics were stunning and minimalistic.

(1 edit) (+1)

thank you so much! the graphics were really fun to make :)


The art direction is perfect and the transparent text boxes work excellently! The story is touching and I appreciate that you made your own song. Well done <3

thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it :D


Wow! Wow, wow, wow, wow!!!!!!  Very emotional!


thank you!!!
