Bought it on android and love it, great work. It took me a few minutes to understand the 'arrows' on the cards and what they mean, but a very intriguing mechanic. I did notice on the screen shots here have the questions on the cards, would i be possible to get a summary of the question for the mobile version?
Glad you enjoyed it!
The question is the first bit of dialogue that appears when you place a card. So just look at the ayer character's dialogue.
Thanks for playing!
I didn't realize this had been released on itch.io. Now I don't know if I should buy it here or wait for the mobile release. ;
