I enjoyed playing this game because I like interacting with my surroundings. This game shows the true friendship between balls, boxes and gunnies (cats) who also look like balls. I really loved the happy birthday part in the game. Developer can improve. All the best for the future.

A heartfelt idea executed in the most *colourful* and beautiful manner. I think the personalised fonts and graphics made the experience all the more homely and comforting.

Thank you so much for this. I'm really glad I had the opportunity of playing this and I look forward to more in the future.

Very pretty sound design, and interesting art. The floating motion of the characters only amplifies the feeling that these are impressions of people. The butterfly was a nice touch.

A heartfelt game which touched the hearts of its intended audience. 

Thank you for making this game. I'm glad I got to play it.
