I just started playing and the first time I meet Liberty outside the museum, the second time she appears on screen, she's … naked. I mean, well, you know, not … naked, but all her clothing is a flesh-toned bodysuit instead of her t-shirt?

Hi there, thanks for reporting that issue to us! Somehow a typo slipped through and she wasn't assigned any clothing only in that instance. We'll be addressing it in our next update.

Thanks! I think she'd appreciate not being exposed to the world like that. XD

I keep having an exception error on Mac. I copied the code, but don't know where to send it

Wish the music was available independently. Might be. Have to check the credits again but would love the soundtrack.

We just posted the music! 

Yay!

first, the art is lovely, and the story is a unique/emotional journey! however, it didn't quite land for me. yes, this is ordell's journey, but i wish we'd been able to get to know the other characters more. ordell's recovery seems hugely tied to finding his place/his friends, and yet, with the exception of 1-2 scenes, i barely spoke to any of them outside of evan (who i attempted, somewhat unsuccessfully, to romance). the dev's have said that's by design, so perhaps that works for some people! for me, unfortunately, i left feeling like i was missing too much to decide how i truly felt about the game.

woah...felt like it ended too soon. i got way more invested in this than i thought i would have. great job
