This is a wonderful experience.


This was a very reflective experience for me, as the dichotomy mechanic prompts thinking about what each component of a dichotomy means and how it relates to other components.

And this game helped me get towards more closure on a particular life event that changed everything for me forever.

So thank you for that.

Thank you for creating this! It is a very nice experience.

Ooh! This sounds cool as heck! I'm excited to give it a try!
