Woah, I just discovered there are people who will ask to take a selfie with you! And you can pose while they take the picture!!! I can't believe I didn't notice that before.
This is just such a beautiful game. Revisiting this after all this time, and realizing there were more secrets lying undiscovered, just makes the game feel so alive. Like these characters have always been there, doing their thing, having fun on the train, whether or not I was there to notice.
I almost teared up a bit at the last station. Knowing this was it. The end of Hikari's tale. Knowing I had to leave eventually. I had to re-enter the real world. The game acknowledges that. Everyone else has gone home. You have to, too. But it doesn't make you do it. You don't have to do it if you're not ready. You can stay there, linger in this moment. Sit down for a second, think about the good times you've had. Your favorite moments. The adorable kittens on the subway (or all the grumpy businessmen!)
This is your moment, stay in it as you like. And when you're ready, and only then, you can step off and go back to your world.
Such a beautiful game Jon. I hope to experience more of your work someday.
