The music in this game is sooooo beautiful! I don't frequent games that slow you down and have you reading but this was nice to sit down and read through. I don't want to spoil anything but I recommend taking the time to do all the endings.
A downloadable contemplative fiction
Version 1.1 out now!
-Fixed a major bug to the music at the end where the lead guitar does not start and the rhythm guitar does not fade away. Listeners of the OST prior to playing the game, rejoice!
-Added "Pinot" to credits
-Fixed a broken apostrophe in the Parking Lot destination
-Split the Parking Lot ending up into two screens to prevent the text from appearing down to the bottom of the screen
-Credits now appear at the end of the game upon pressing the 'ESC' key
Thanks to everyone who chimed in about the game, I'm so glad that people still enjoyed the game despite these bugs. Some may not have even noticed things like the music, so if you feel like replaying the game you'll find a slightly different endgame experience :)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*BEST PLAYED WITH HEADPHONES FOR MAXIMUM CALM AND FOCUS*
A contemplative, minimalist piece of interactive fiction about death.
Watercolors reads like an anthology of poetry, short stories, and lyrics; it only takes about 30-60 minutes to complete, depending on how fast of a reader you are. That being said I encourage you to take your time; the tide will guide you in.

I have never before felt such a strong connection to my fear of the unknown while also feeling a calm acceptance of the things in life that just are. I cried and cried at the end of the game. The music, the visuals and, of course, the writing create a complete and meaningful experience that I will definitely hold on to. 10/10!
I enjoyed it
I think I see it on the horizon! Getting giddy!
