i love this game and i love how calming and beautiful and peaceful it is. it's such a nice time and it the fact that both the protagonists are nonbinary means so much, especially in a town equally populated by non-heternormative and heterosexual couples. the inclusivity isn't even questioned. not to mention the story is so nice and refreshing, you're just having a nice time collecting seaglass for your partner, it's so sweet! it was a wonderful experience to play and i'm so glad i have it now for a day when i'm not feeling too hot and i need a pick me up!
A downloadable game for Windows
seaglass is a short rmxp game about love and gestures of affection, focused on item collection.
The player controls Eliot, a young adult who has never met their closest friend, Loren, in person before. The two have conversed exclusively through messages in bottles tossed back and forth at sea. After seven years, Loren is coming to visit Eliot, and they want to commemorate the occasion with a special and suitable gift.
They decide on a seaglass necklace, and it's up to the player to obtain it!
INSTRUCTIONS & REQUIREMENTS
seaglass is currently Windows only. I'm looking into a Mac port, but in the mean time, I recommend Wine, a free program for running Windows programs on other machines. It's straightforward, and this is a helpful article on it!
On any operating system, seaglass requires the RPG Maker XP Run Time Package to run. It can be downloaded here for free. Download the RPG Maker XP version and install it on your computer, then open the game!
The game is played with arrow keys for navigation, space bar to interact with people and things, and the ESC key to open and close menus.
