I loved it so much but I  cannot for the life of me, get all the achievements lmao need more digging here and there ig

AAhh what a cute little game! I really love all the bat's designs and the way you designed the GUI was really impressive! Im always amazed to see what people can make with renpy's framework.

I also really appreciated the guide you provided with the game, it was a nice touch. :D

This is a delightfully cute game about playing with bats. I really appreciate all the little details in it! You've integrated the UI effortlessly into the story, and it's all very immersive. All the more better to give me warm, fuzzy bat feelings!

Thanks for this.
