how can a game be so short and so relatable at the same time
A simple meeting with an old friend... Or is it? Your thoughts reveal more than you think...
HOW TO PLAY
- Left click to drag thoughts around. Be sure to click on the bubbles and not on the text to drag it around!
- Right click to skip dialogues.
- To start the game, drag the "start game" thought to the bubble; to restart the game reload the page.
- Be careful not to use thoughts that put you in an embarassing situation, and see if you can reveal your secret love!

Found lost and love endings
Such a simple idea and mechanic but put together to make something with a lot of comedy and re-playability. Sometimes it really does feel that stressful and chaotic to arrange your thoughts.
another idea is an ending where by a certain order of choices she ends up just not confessing and you stay friends
good concept of a game, liked it
Can hardly play it. Sometimes the dialogue options spawn on top of each other or right above the text box so it's impossible to stop them.
It should not be this hard to not be a creep. The options shouldn't move that fast, if at all. Just because I'm nervous and I think of something to say that I decide not to, it isn't difficult to not say it. This feels very unrealistic and frustrating.
Hello! This isn't meant to be realistic really, just a way to replicate the stressful situation of having such strong feelings for a person it makes it hard to think straight! Maybe you are luckier than me and are able to think rationally under pressure but I can't really.
I agree with your frustrations though, this was mostly an experiment I played around with for a jam so it's very rough.
i wish i could somehow carry the "your breasts are amazing" thought to the end to say instead of i wanna kiss you. would be a funny ending.
That's a funny idea!
what do you think the ending would be like? i'm wondering if it would be "you screwed it up and she threw the dinner at your face" or "now that i think about it lets just be friends"
I love this game.
Would be nice if I could get it to scale to my phone screen…
I'll try to remember to play it next I can access a PC.
Sorry about that, it was not designed to be used with a phone...
I found virtual love lol
huh,just like my life.
ok,that was a joke but really nice game with cool mechanics well done with the art too i really enjoyed!
This was an interesting game to play. I really enjoyed the story and the game mechanics of moving thought bubbles was quite interesting and engaging!
This was such a good story!!!
I can t stared the game, im using a chromebook laptop.
I don't know if you already tried, but you have to drag the "start game" thing on the bubble to start the game
Lol, pretty nice game, I enjoyed it!
im stuck i cant start the game
Hey ! I really liked your game and how you used the game mecanics to think about how dialog works. Might seem like a standard game about anxiety, but you pictured good how our thought can "get in our ways", and I think that's a really good thing about this game. Good job and thanks you for making it ! :)
really cool game i thought the main mechanic was cool and i actually like the writing it was sweet and realistic and it does have some humor in it like trying not to say "i like your breasts" to her makes me giggle
This is an incredible game! Short, sweet, and too the point XD
Good god this is social anxiety the game xD
Seems like a cool game, but honestly couldn't play it long because it seriously gave me a panic attack lol Maybe if the thoughts moved slightly slower? But that's just my silly opinion.
Sorry about that! Yeah, it was kind of the point of the game to create a little social anxiety. Don't let that stop you though! Being awkward is part of being human.
pushing away thoughts of "i love your breasts" and "i practiced for two hours to tell you i love you" was the most stressful thing ever but i found love!! hell yeah! nice game :D
The thoughts... they cannot be controlled! XD
Cool idea for a game mechanic! It really put the pressure on to keep some thoughts away while thinking up a response. ^^
it make me think a lot of things about my self , thanks for this game
IM FEELING SO MANY THINKGS I FOUND LOVE I CANT I CANT ITS TOO PRECIOUS AND REAL
