thank you. for the game. i didn't think... i mean, wow. gosh. i'm not really sure i have any words haha! games like this make me feel like that. i didn't expect to be so emotionally impacted by this but...

it's so weird to be able to access such beautiful games for free on the internet (as someone who's just getting into games!!). so... my point is red dwarf gets the honor of being the first itch.io game i leave a comment on. thank you for making me feel the way this game did. <3 for those reading through the comments i think it was very worthwhile to play the game the whole way through

bernard you fucking bastard

high honour to be your first comment, thank you

This game is aching with melancholy, but it's also funny at times, and bitterly sweet. 

There is a heart to this work that I am always grasping at with my own writing. A story about the little things, the little moments, that still matter in the face of a blindingly massive universe that does not care. 

I think this game will stick with me a while. It's one of those moments.
