bloody hell this is beautiful. hope it was longer
holy fuck i love it
as usual for Deconstructeam, this game was so impactful despite how short it was. I love how the flowers influence the story, and how Sebastion and Gordon interact. Really amazing.
Beauty. I love it so much.
I have no words
this game... I just... wow, its beautiful. also once I finished and went back to replay I noticed that some flowers were missing, including the one I left on the grave. idk I find it interesting that the amount of each flower sometimes changes. anyway this is genuinely one of the best games I've played on here.
I never leave any comments, but i have to do it this time. So good.
Had the chance to try this on Windows. Utterly stunning creation. Just wonderful. I did have the problem of not having anywhere to put accents from the workbench if I didn't want to put them in the pot, but I was happy to restart and go through the dialog again. Thanks for this.
I love the emotions you managed to fit in such a short story. Well done!
I really enjoyed this game, it’s so calming too even the characters. I would play this game so much to make vases that look so elegant
I was playing the introduction, but there was no "Done" button to press and finish making the bouquet.
i have the same problem :(
I absolutely loved this. Flower arrangement + choice-making + an introspective plot!
A goddamn good game, and hell of a story you put together. Hit hard, to be honest. 10/10
A short bouquet creation game with a violent and emotional narrative, love it
A really good game. Certainly wasnt what i was expecting, and while it didnt really hit any strong emotions for me, it still brought out the story well :)
i didn't expect this game to bring up such powerful emotions, but it definitely did. this will stay in my memory for quite some time; its a really, really beautiful game that i thoroughly enjoyed. thank you.
An absolutely beautiful game, that is so powerful. As someone who's in the closet due to fear of being hurt, the theme of the struggles that queer people face from parents and from superiors hit me hard.
I've played more than 20 hours of this game. I love love love this game to death. It's everything I love about your game style at Deconstructeam cranked up to TWENTY. The writing is incredible, the themes are relevant and just spectacular. I cannot sing my praises for this game enough.
Wow, that was so powerful! Thank you!
sweet, short, to the point. I like it and I wish it was longer but I recognize it's the perfect length to hit what it does the way it does. Thank you.
that hit me like a punch. thank you. i needed it.
I found myself caught off guard by the themes touched on in this game- it's beautiful. and the music + art is a fantastic match for the themes.
Quite a surprise and delight to read through.
Beautiful art and music, I found myself touched by the brief look into the lives of Sebastian and Gordon. Incredibly calming to arrange bouquets - I would love to see a lengthier game featuring these two.
This almost me cry when I reached the ending. It’s so beautiful and heartfelt, especially with the developing relationship between Gordon and Sebastian. I managed to see two endings, but I wonder if the other two are the same. Great game! I can’t wait to see more!
Muy buen juego, muy bello. Les agradezco.
wow, I just wow, that made me cry. Thank you
I absolutely love the soundtrack! Is there any place where I can pay to have access to it?
Really appreciating this work of art. Finds a way to deconstruct more complex sentiments into basic ones, through flowers.
Hi. I'm your new fan from South Korea. I was very touched when I played this game. I even made a video with subtitles in my language!
Thank you guys for making a wonderful one. I also love the music.
Every game that comes from the creative mind of Deconstructeam really is a wonder! Who would ever think to make a florist / crime / romance adventure game? It just blows my mind!
Ahem, anyway! This is a real delight of a game where you play as a hitman who has suffered a seemingly career-ending injury who finds himself becoming the apprentice of a lonely florist (who also has ties to crime, who'd have thunk it?).
As we learn about the different flowers and what effects they have we also put together bouquets for a variety of different people, and the flowers we select have a direct effect on where the plot goes from there.
It really is a clever little game, and I really do urge you to go and give it a whirl! It's definitely a once in a lifetime experience!
As for you, Deconstructeam, keep up the as ever amazing work =)
Thank you for making this. I enjoyed experiencing it and am in awe that it was completed in 72 hours for LD43.
As a noir game/story, Eternal Home Floristry really brought its artistic elements together cleanly. The pixel art was appropriately stylized, the ambient music was just right, and the sound effects were strikingly compelling. The feeling of this game–its aesthetic, its mood–was impressively coherent, especially given how quickly it was made.
Though the details of the story were largely foreign to me, the themes were human and I found myself smiling at times and sighing at others as different points of the story resonated with me. There were a few English spelling/grammar errors, but they were minor.
In all, this was worth the 10–15 minutes it took to play! Thank you for sharing it with the world.
As an aside: I ran this game on macOS using Wine 3.0.4 and it ran great!
WHY THERE ARE LOT OF SAD AND CRUEL FLOWERit really give you that emotion man.....
I really enjoyed this. More than I even thought I would, honestly. It pacts a lot of punch in such a short amount of time. The flower mechanic is also very fun, sort of nostalgic for decorating games I played as a kid but mixed with this dark, melancholy atmosphere. Y'all are great.
If you are interested in making a Chinese language version, please send me the text of the dialogue script. I will do it. I really like this game.
This is really cool! When playing it through WINE on Ubuntu 18, I don't see the "done" prompt on the bouquet and so can't progress beyond the first. I think WINE must just be forcing the game to do something it wasn't intended to. Would def still recommend this to Windows users though.
Lovely game! Lots of flower combination which means lots of different outcome per play through!
I encounter an error when using blue, blue, red flower combination for the funeral bouquet. I can use that combination for other bouquet but the funeral. Hope it will be fixed soon!
