This game really makes you think about all the seemingly small choices in your life and the big consequences they can have.

Awesome game! Interested in finding the other endings and hopefully a happier one! Really love the idea of having this seemingly small choices having big impacts on our life.

A very interesting  and relaxing game i enjoyed how the story plays out and how the choices are presented to you. the game did crash a Couple of times for me at the end however

I greatly enjoy these types of games, ones where you make your own choices as you go and you watch the story pan out in front of you. I only played through to one of the endings, but I 100% accept the one I received as I made my decisions as if those situations were presented to me. I really enjoyed this game, it certainly makes you reflect on yourself as a person and how you govern your own life.

Thanks for contacting me about this game. I hope I was able to do it justice, and show people what it was all about. It actually hit kinda close to home for me. Here's my video on it.

Wow, thanks for playing, a really nice, emotional let's play :) Sorry for bringing up bad memories but glad you enjoyed yourself nonetheless! Also sorry you encountered the strange issue with the endings where it fades out and then pops back to game, the game is meant to end after fading out and it's been fixed now!

great game but i can't get any further once i reach a certain point, if it's still being worked on i can't wait for the future of it.

Thank you for the lovely comment! Sorry to hear you ran into that bug, we are currently looking into it and hope to have a fix up soon. We initially posted Causeway as a way to document and archive our Global Game Jam submission but it's been received so well we are considering taking it further. :)
