My Submission for the Bitsy Snail Jam https://itch.io/jam/snails-bitsy

Traveling is a lot more fun when you can carry you're house on your back but also a lot slower.

Move forwards towards the mollusk family reunion or go back to retreat into your home

Is there, perhaps, romance on the trail? There's only one way to find out!

In absolute truth after I finished your game I spent quite a while just reflecting and thinking about all of the things Snail Tail could mean to different players. So many things can stop you from keeping up with the expected speed and its okay to embrace that and as much at it sucks its okay to accept it may not work with everybody. Your game totally captures that feeling.  Thank you for developing this game I enjoyed it a lot specially the afterthought it triggered.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much, this is the nicest review i've ever gotten! I'm so glad it resonated with you so strongly!

What a wonderful game! I like how the slowness of checking in at home is acknowledged by the end, it's bittersweet but still so heartwarming. I also thought the little touches like the interactive sequences were great! I'm gonna go to sleep with happy thoughts now, haha. 

Thanks, I'm so glad you liked it! Bitsy is great for mood pieces and I'm glad I got across the feeling I was trying to!

Such a cool little game, has a lovely feel to it :) Took me a  bit to figure out the walking backwards dynamic but I got there eventually lol. I feel cosy now

Thanks for playing! It's not the most immediately intuitive mechanic, but I think it's neat
