I enjoyed the game, loved how you only had a few things to work with yet still told a great story, and the twist at the end was great
really nice short VN, would love too see it expanded on
A very nicely done and creepy VN scene with a lot of promise for the future. I'm not sure the choice adds a whole lot - either put more in or less. :) Anyway, I hope your next project goes as well!
I souled my soul UWU!
dont let me install cus the thumnail
i clicked because the woman in the thumbnail looked attractive but other than that this is awesome
If you ever decide to expand this into a longer visual novel, I will absolutely play it!
My first visual novel game. Was pretty lit🐣
Also made a video feel free to check it out🌚
With this compact story there are endless possibilities. A bit more polishing and endings and this could be one of the best visual novels on itch.io. Also it is worthy of the horror game title thanks to the uneasy feeling while playing the game. Keep going!
MY PLAYTHROUGH OF THE GAME:
Awesome game! I like the detail that you can't visit the mirror twice too!
-Made a Video (00:06 / 1st Game).
Great game. I don't usually play visual novels however I gave this one a go. Very well put together and enjoyable. Great character and awesome story line. Keep up the good work :)
I love the story I would love it more when we could know more about Ivy past. I was hoping for diffrent endings.
The story of this game is definitely pretty decent, it felt a bit rushed which I guess is thanks to the word count limit, there wasn't much tension or emotion in the air, the ghosts recounts of her final moments or Ivy's thrillseeking journey needed more depth to them. I also found the music to be mismatched with the overall tone and scene, the beginning of the track worked well but the orchestral part ruined it and it felt like it cut out at the wrong places when building suspense.
Other than those few issues, the game is definitely good especially for how much time and limitations were paired with the making of the game. I'd rate this game a solid 6.5/10 for sure.
I really liked the overall theme
Amazing story, I love how intense it git with just one sprite as well as how the music helped amplify it. The ghost's story was heartbreaking but also terrifying, especially with the people she preys with. I hope Ivy can get serious help, especially when she was given a chance to survive through that entire ordeal.
Good stuff! The sound and visual design were a great match. Very somber and eerie.
I really enjoyed what you put together here, it was short but lots of love and care was put into it, i could tell, definitely made me tense up just a little, keep up the good work
I also did a video on it, hope you enjoy it :)
This was a pretty solid little story. Definitely on the sad/creepy side. And the games art syle was good as well. Made a video on it.
Is there only one ending? I don't know if I'm missing more of the game or not cause when I try to play it again from the menu I get "I can't!"
There is currently only one ending, but that may change in future updates.
To play again, you just need to quit and relaunch :)
Thanks for playing!
This was a cool concept to make a game about. I'm glad I got to play it!

Hello, are you interested in getting your games translated? Bc i can do it for free
This was heavy to go through, but I highly enjoyed the presentation of this.
My hands are sweating! This one pulled me in and didn't let go. Amazing use of sound and ambience. Extremely creepy! Thank you for making this!
I really liked the originality and intensity of it. The ritual, the story, the characters, and the atmosphere all felt unique and turned out be much darker than I expected. Extremely well done!
Great job on the game idea, and it’s great to see that you managed to be creative in the limitations. Also I liked what you did with stopping the player from going through the story again, it really flowed perfectly with your conversations with your reflection.
I loved this game so much. The writing is superb and the fears it evokes about oneself while playing is a creepy feeling that is wonderfully unsettling.
This was amazingly well done. The art is superb and the characters were defined in such a way as to make them believable and sympathetic, especially Ivy. What a great entry to the Jam! Makes me want to delve further into your other work.
I unfortunately didn't realize there was an extended version, and went through the original release.
Reflection was a short but definitely not sweet game.
In my video, I talk a lot about the psychological aspects of what was going on. Had there been more to the story, I would've loved to dive deeper into what was going on in Ivy's life. If y'all ever decide to make a version of the game that's longer like Graveyard Girls (which I also enjoyed) I will definitely revisit this!
I really loved how unique this concept was and the way you guys handled such serious topics! The way you guys didn't shy from the gritty details and really dove into that /feeling/ of SI, took my breath away. I genuinely felt for both characters involved and the way they interacted with each other. I especially loved the way you differentiated between the 2 characters when talking in such a unique way, I think y'all did amazing over all!
i wish there was more i could say to this other than it's beautiful, poetic, and eerie with its own pit of despair. but i loved this. each asset was used so well, and it stood out. you guys did amazing!
Surprisingly deep and dark for the game jam project, wow!
Usually, I expect good games from game jams and especially, visual novels are the best way to translate the narrative both visually and verbally - well, this game was way bigger and better than I expected for sure.
The character was very relatable and strong. I liked the little details and well written story. Most of all, I loved the music and sentences used in the game. Personally, I think the game could have used more textures or images, maybe showcasing the transition between the mirror word entity and the character as them being very different, but, overall, the game is fantastic.
If you are planning on updating the game after the Jam, I wish to know that. Good luck and if you want to hear more of my review, it stars at 12:51. Cheers ✌
Thank you so much for this review and your feedback! It is very appreciated.
Due to the rules of the game jam, we weren't allowed to have any image changes aside from expressions, the scene itself could not change during gameplay or we'd be breaking the rules.
Reflection is part of the "only one of any asset jam" so we had to think outside the box!
We will definitely be updating and adding more cinematic transitions and creating a unique entity in the future :)
Again, thank you so much, watching your video was very fun.
