i loved playing this. it was quite calming to play and i gradually found it easier to type perseverance. keep up the amazing work! :)
that was lovely, thank you!
love it <3
Great game! I love how it gradually gets easier as you keep working at it!
I love it. I've been trying to translate psychological phenomenons into games recently and this piece does that brilliantly. Inspiring. Thanks. :)
I gotta say, this is an amazing game. I've been wanting to create games with meaning in them/moral of the story, but nothing seems to work at all. Then I found this game and became good at typing perseverance whilst understanding it. Thank you :). You made me continue on.
This is really cool! Is there even a end?
Glad you enjoyed it!
The game has no end. I thought it didn't really make sense given the theme.
As the description says: "Once dialogues start repeating you've seen it all"
If you want to see them climb the stairs faster download 'Auto Hot key', and save ".ahk" file with the following script. Press "0". :)
I've felt like this while making video games, until I reached a point where I couldn't keep going up anymore, I gave up. Now I'm standing on the stairs, trying to decide if it's a good idea to keep going up, or if it's better to go down. Also sometimes constancy is not enough, you need to choose the right stairs.
Just make whatever feels good to you and remember that there's no shame in stopping something if you need to.
Check the comments at the top for how to use it.
awesome graphics ^^
Perseverance is such an annoying word to type which made the game a lot more thoughtful. This is such a good game- it made me feel good and motivated. It was also thoughtful and I loved the back-and-forth dialogue.
wonderful, unexpected but really enjoyed this
this is really great, sort of feels adjacent to getting over it but with a different mode ~
It's great! A moment stuck with me. I got really used to write 'constancia' (I played in spanish) and started writing it really fast and mechanically. At some point I stopped advancing and had to think about what was failing. One of my hands was misplaced on the keyboard and I had to take a moment to put back to it where it should be.
I don't know, it just spoke to me.
Thanks! I don't have tons of experience on reddit, I tried sharing it there but it got removed right away.
Wonderful. It's like Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" meeting Camus' "The Myth of Sisyphus".
