on the days where my chronic pain and fatigue are bad, i always come bacc to this game- something about it just feels so beautiful, depurressing, and comfurting, all at the same time <3 is there anywhere i can listen to the music on its own?? ive kinda been keeping the game open to listen to it, hehe.

thanks so much, this is a really heartwarming thing to read. I'm sorry to hear you're going through that - I made this game based on my own experiences of chronic fatigue, seasonal affective disorder, depression and burnout, so I can relate ♥

I've put the music on my website for you to grab: http://tinybird.info/music/sun-machine.mp3

This was a really nice game! I loved the music. Did you compose it yourself?

Thank you very much! Yeah, I did :) it's kind of inspired by this tune.

I played this game a couple of weeks ago and found it so cute and atmospheric. I came back now and it was actually even more moving than the first time. Love the use of color/light.

It's weird but I do not hear any music. 

EDIT: when using safari. 

sorry to hear that, do you have this problem with any other Bitsy games? it's a bit hard for me to look into this 'cause I don't have a Mac.

Is downloading the Itch desktop app an option for you? That version should hopefully work.

it's working with the desktop app, thank you! and yes, I do have this problem with every Bitsy game, I just thought they don't include music..

I know Google Chrome recently made a change that prevented audio from autoplaying on load, and it stopped a lot of Bitsy/web game music from working. Maybe Safari has done something similar. I'm glad you were able to get it working :)

This, strangely enough, made me feel nostalgic whilst playing. I loved the imagery you conjured, especially in the end with the summer memories. The music was really good too! <3

aww thank you! yeah it's definitely about nostalgia :)
