i love this so much!!! boys are so dumb. but they're fun to kiss

also, who did the original image? i remember seeing it on somewhere, maybe on twitter? i think it would make a cool shirt that i'd definitely wear

I just remember seeing it on tumblr, I'm sure with a little digging, it wouldn't be hard to find a source~

After a little googling, it seems to be made by an artist named Audrey Wollen! ✨✨

thank you (O:

This was a lot of fun. I particularly liked mr salty butterfly for some reason. :)

thank you!!!!

Oh the ending of this game made me laugh out loud! A lovely take on the make-a-sandwich-em-up platformer. Amazing job! I especially loved the "Game Girl" frame, thought that was a really nice touch. 

Keep it up, you're rocking it! 

P.S. I gushed a little when I saw the words "Butterscotch Shenanijam" I love those guys 

Thank you so much! ✨

Yeah, them dudes are really funny!!

Sam is my favourite, for obvious reasons.

I like Adam the best, although that's mainly because I've been to some game lectures he's given and they were all really neat. I'm sure all three are very nice ^^

Very true :D

Your game is funny, empowering and somewhat refreshing!  <3 The taunts towards the "Make me a sandwich!" dudes really made me giggle - especially the salty tears of the exceedingly masculine Mr. Butterfly. :D Furthermore, your use of Bitsy is really noteworthy and it was fun to explore the little world of Girly. So it was another pleasure for me to recommend a game of yours in one of our compilation articles. Of course, one minute of gameplay (with my favorite scene) is also shown in the accompanying video. :) Keep up the great work!

Best wishes,
Sebastian

Absolutely amazing. Packing so much into a minimalistic approach. I can't help but appreciate how much you fit in to such a small little game. This is great, and really took me for surprise. That's some serious talent. Color me jealous.
