As a game, it’s basically an emotion sim, where you’re trying to keep the 7 yr old MC’s Fear, Anger, Jealousy and Sadness under control, while also keeping the other characters happy. If Emotions go over 100 or below 0, you lose choices, while NPCs being too unhappy similarly limits your interaction with them.
As a story, it’s about loss, loneliness, and ultimately finding your way “home”, with elements of magical realism. Who or what is Charlie? Think Katie Morag meets Inside Out meets Hayao Miyazaki, with more of a focus on community and friendship than romance.
