awwwe! I think I got a happy ending! for me atleast-- I like to spoil, but I hope my wallet is still surviving tho XD
time to get the rest of the endings :') 

i got the one where he eats people... fictionally speaking, i would probably be fine with it though since he still treats me nicely... 🫢

i dont know how to play this, yes i have a old windows and i spent the last 9 minutes tryna figure out how to get past the beginning, SOMEONE HELP PLS I WANNA SEE A HANDSOME MERMAN


i got all three endings!! ended up getting the sad one first, this is a lovely story <3

I didn't even know that you could get multiple endings till I read the comments down below. I always get the happy one haha!

Uhm, I don't really know what I got.. But it said he eats people... 😐 And, I questioned my love for him..?? Argh I feel so dumb typing this. Anygays, nice game! I'll play again cuz I wanna see the other endings. 

Ok, my second attempt was much better, and didn't mention any eating of people. AND I didn't question my love for him, much better.


I got the sad boi over and over and over again and it made me so sad I couldn't make him feel any better, and then finally got the creepy one. I love that one though. But also, I want my sad boi to be happier ;n;

I love this game !

yeah seems im more likely to get the gory ending but what do you want gotta satisfy your man's needs somehow. honestly it's my fav.

i would recommend to everyone playing again to experience the other endings !

(spoilers btw, never check this comment section right before ur about to play)

"He knows he can do whatever he wants while you're at work, he can write to his family if he misses them, he can watch TV if he's bored, and he can take up gardening again if he needs a hobby. But there must be something missing between even all of that, as the only thing that seems to give him any peace at all is just the act of wordlessly sitting together with you. Sometimes you'll cuddle, or sometimes he rests his head on your shoulder as you read a book. And sometimes, on very rare occasions when the right kind of music is playing, he'll doze off on the couch and smile in his sleep.

It's not quite the same as a window full of pink tulips, but it's a start."

was my ending but wtf kind of ending have these guys got in the comment below


Oh nice!

Him: *noms on humans*



*thinking*: "hmm, I wonder what his favorite food is... I hope it's steak I like steak"

*completely random "He doesn't like the neighbors upstairs"*

*he eats the neighbors upstairs* 

*I also eat some of the neighbors upstairs*



Me staring at everyone who apparently got horrifying, human-eating fish bfs while I got a really sweet one who I got to dote on just as I've always wanted to do to someone:

as someone who's experimenting with making stuff in twine, the colour scheme is really satisfying lol. loved all the endings!

Your game was really cool! I liked it and the story was pretty interesting.


I love all the different endings. Also, you have a great writing style ^-^


wow i did not expect that ending. creepy


I got all three endings by picking different boyfriends each time and ugh I'm such a sucker for all three of them, even though venomous boyfriend is, um. Existentially terrifying? That.


As my experience only range from two endings, I can say this is hauntingly melancholic :")


Holy fuck this was so scary


That twist made my jaw drop.


i only got the sad end until i very deliberately tried to get the other endings... WHY IS MY SEXY FISH UNHAPPY?! I MUST FIX THIS!!!

I apparently got the cute and sweet boyfriend ending where I spoil him out of love? I'm actually a little confused after hearing about everyone else getting darker endings. I guess I got lucky? Is there something more unsettling to this ending that I'm not seeing? 

I don't know, but I'm liking the first ending that I got!


You don’t want to know bud trust me.

I didn't expect that twist, wow.


wow, thank you so much for making this video!! you actually got super close to another less edgy ending so if you ever get the urge to try for the other 2, a merman boyfriend who doesn't eat people is not too far off!


Somehow, I get an evil mermaid boyfriend lol. All the endings won't be like this right? Please? Lol.


Very interesting and actually unsettling text adventure!

I don't usually play the browser games / text adventures, but something in this one appealed to me, and I don't regret it for one second!


I got the creepy as hell but still great ending where he's a venomous human eating creature that uses the main character to get him prey. And I'm wondering if all of the endings are totally insane like this one, or if you have at least one that is... well, I won't say happier, but I dunno... cuter? Just wondering how much variety it has, as I may not retry right away, but I'm still curious!

Anyway, great work here, I really enjoyed it a lot!
