On the balcony is a short story about thunders, fallen trees, loving shadows, and other lost fears.

The hasty result of a man-made metamorphosis lead to dreadful and unavoidable consequences.

Now you're here, prompted to take the last train to the balcony.
There, your loved one is waiting for you...

I absolutley loved the game although I am not sure I completely understand what I was reading.  I do now see that it may require more than a single playthrough so I may have to go back and try another route. The art style is what originaly drew me to this game and it was amazing all throughout! Great Job!

Thank you! 😉
And thanks for your amazing video too! 👍

What a fantastic game. The art-style painting added such a blurry sense of distorted reality. It perfectly matched the atmosphere you were going for.

I wanted to piece more of the story together but I think some of the things didn't translate fully (I have no idea what a 'water detachment' is) but I was able to get a bit of it at least. Thank you so much for all the work you do.

Thank you! And no, I can assure you that there were no translated terms. They all exactly mean what they mean.
And water detachment, is in fact "water detachment".
Let me just remind you that we're talking about a near future, sci-fi story...
So, a bit of "scientific" research and word analysis may be involved in the story's understanding. 😉

I loved playing this game. It had a great soundtrack and a very beautiful art style.  The story was confusing but that's what made it captivating.  As I played, I just wanted to find out what was going on more and more.  This is one of my favorites from the developer. If you haven't played it yet or haven't checked out any more of Andrea's games, then I suggest you play this game and try out his other stuff.  

If you want, you can watch my playthrough of the game below:

Loved it :D And really "mature" production wise! Very professional for a solo project. 

The plot was insane, as usual with your stuff! I can't say I grasped it 100%  but it was all so mysterious and interesting it was still a great experience. 

Thanks for the game, great work on it. Hope you enjoy the Lumps Play! Check that thumbnail art! I even gave her a "shadow" 😜

Cheers. 🍻

Wonderful video as always! 

... and that shadow makes her look so real... but was she ever? 😜
