i love it! the concept, the romance, well-brewed atmosphere, it's super amazing💫and i like how customization can work out in peculiar ways, like you can pick the avatar and mysterious stranger so that they look very similar and imagine something interesting, and choosing  pronouns  was super sweet!

I wanted to make the pronoun elements as customisable as possible. The menu was a little finicky to draw, lots of tiles, but implementing the customisable dialogue itself was actually pretty simple, and is definitely one to use going forward. Thanks!
