I think I saw this game in itch.io, did you by any chance upload it there too?

On Itch, it's marked "in development" still. https://libromancy-studios.itch.io/sopor-eterno

Yes, it's the same one! I'm only the progammer.  I'll request the project Manager if she can upload this version to itch.io (she has the access to it because she's part of libromancy studios and I'm not).
By the way! I have updated (2/4/22) the link to the new version that fix some minor bugs in the translation (it's the first time I translate a game) and in the dialog system.

just when I had a really bad sleep last night this game appears, there must be something to it...
will try that tomorrow :)
Any chance for a linux version? It is just checking an additional checkbox in the game settings and uploading the linux files (separately) ...

I get that this is a short game, but it opens to an intro I cannot skip, which is a non-starter for me.  :P
Looks lovely though.

Thanks! You can skip the intro dialogue with "esc" or even "left mouse click", but I guess you mean an "entire" skip button, right? If so it's a great idea for future releases :D

The game looks beautiful, and the music makes me sleepy...which is apt, given what the game is about. (No really, it's a nice, relaxing tune.)

Unfortunately, some key parts early on have not been translated from Spanish (I played the English version), making progress very difficult.

I agree with heltenjon here: The game is beautiful, I love the dreamy colors.

But yeah, I arrived to that part in Spanish and even with google translate it's difficult  :P

I got stuck in the same place as the others. Unfortunately I didn't see a Save/Load so I had to turn it off and lose my progress. I think I'd be willing to try again if there would be a Save/Load and the language would be sorted out.

You can save and load with F5 and F7.

Ahh...I didn't get that puzzle on my own. Thanks :)

I finished the game - there wasn't much after the puzzle with the Spanish password phrase, but in one week there's understandably a need to keep things short. The game captures the dreamy mood with music and graphics. The choices you make in the game are deeply rooted in philosophy, but I agree with Wiggy that this doesn't come as well across in the English translation due to the Spanish password phrase puzzle. So if you know Spanish, you're better off playing that version.

It feels like there could have been inserted a longer story in this, and that what I've played is merely the beginning and the end. I would have liked to see a longer version, perhaps showing more of the differences between the two creatures' realms.
