Am I the only one that think those kind of stories are boring?
Although I feel sorry for the mom and indeed get a sad feeling, those stories bores me as well.

But I really liked the secret, I expected some secret happy ending or something like that and was just going "wtf!?". I like to be surprised by those things ^^

DAMN IT, REIVES! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT SO SAD?

I loved it (and I loved The Mirror Lied), but damn it, man. I could totally relate and I was just so happy before I watched that... abomination!

Not every part of your lives are happy. One must suffer. Like there is no light without shadow and no warm without sun, so there is no happy without sadness.

I know this old, but I JUST watched this and I have to say that it made me sad and sympathetic to the mother.  My parents were divorced, so that portion was nostalgic a bit.  I kept hoping for a happy ending and the whole time knowing it wasn't going to end like I hoped.

Extremely sad and very well written...  Despite the lack of dialogue.  Extremely well done!  Good job!

I just played this tonight and is my first freebird game.

I view the little girl as the step sister. I see this because the girl never even acknowledges the mom or goes inside the house. The little girl is only there to pick up the brother, and that is it. Also, the sister only wants the brother to stay with her. She never mentions the mother at all.

A part which makes me wonder is the letter. What was in the letter? Possibly the mother asking for some money for the sons cake? However, that money would have gotten to her too late, meaning maybe it was just asking for money or something else.

I too have had to grow up with divorced parents. Neither one was in poverty, but still the feeling of having to tear yourself in two is there. The father wants the son to stay, yet the mother wants the son as well. Every Christmas and major holiday was always this decision on who to stay it with.

Such a beautiful piece of art though. I am most definitely checking out your other games Sir Rieve.

And TC, I did almost cry, lol.

I know what you mean
The background is somewhat of similar to me to but only with difference that my old man rarely cares for me after divorce... So it's somehow really painfull to see that young lad to be... Well in my eyes tricked into belive that his fater really cares for him more that his mom.... Well This was a long time ago... But still.

It's stories like these that make me hate volunteering for foster care.
It's sad as it is beautiful artistic game from Reives and Freebird Games. Bravo!

I especially liked the secret.

I loved this story, and yes, I did cry.

I think the thing that would have made me cry more is if the mother sold the music box, the one thing she owned that brought her joy, just so she could afford a cake. But she didn't, and for that I'm happy.

Seeing it from this perspective made me feel somewhat happy too. =]  I did not cry, but watched with a heavy heart throughout.  When i realised the mother was opening and shutting the music box,  I felt really helpless.  I wish the father had the decency to at least send her a message to let her know their son is staying the night with him.  Nevertheless, thank you, Freebird Games, for this lovely albeit sad little story.  I enjoyed it and really love your graphics and the music!  :seraismile:

It's very touching. I like the part where the mom saves the money in that small jar for his son's birthday. As for other people who thinks that this game is unrealistic, I think that that games or movies or books doesn't have to be realistic as they are only tools "to tell a story". Reives did a great job telling the story through the music, limited dialogues, and the scenes.

Just "palayed" this... *sob sob*  :'( :'(

Somehow, when I see someone doing something for their loved ones in vain, that is just the saddest. Brings memories from my childhood.

Thank you Reives, you 've reminded me how much I love my mom. Gotta give her a call, right now  :'(
