Can't Reach is about a girl who hopes to have her old mom back while fighting an "angel" along the way. This is a game created for fun and learning the basics of RenPy.  Though, we put a lot of work and effort with laziness into completing this short visual novel.

Wowie, this game depressed the heck out of me. I don't necessarily "enjoy" playing visual novels with super serious subject matters, but I do apperciate them exisiting. The art style, backgrounds, music, etc assets, are all very good! The piano at the beginning really sets the mood. However, some of the scene transitions are a little jarring as they don't seem to be programmed entirely correctly...? I'm not sure if they were an intentional choice or just a bug. Also the grammar could use some work. I made a video with my experiences. I try to take a more light-hearted, comedic approach because, boy oh boy, I really get depressed easily by stuff like this. Nevertheless, great job and keep up the great work!

Thank you for taking the time to play and make a video about our game, Can't Reach. We really appreciate it. We will work on the things that made the gaming experience a little bit off.

Heya, this comment put a huge smile on our faces. We are nothing but little girls trying to create something. It was a huge accomplishment for having someone, even a single person to comment some nice things for the VN that we made.
