    I agree with previous feedbacks, the game is longer than it should. Relaxing, though.

    Relaxing game. I included it in my GM48: Countdown compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

    Interesting concept for a game and a very creative interpretation of the theme with counting down the stops. It's kinda nice to just chill out and listen to music for a while. The game is perhaps a bit longer than it needs to be though. It would have been nice to have a bit more variety in scenery or possibly other people on the train to interact with. Anyway, the visuals look good and covey the concept well, plus the music was nice to listen to.

    Neat concept for a game. I wish there was a little more interaction, like people getting on and off the train. Maybe make the player fight for a seat, and have them lose stamina/energy if they haven't sat down in a while.

    Really nice mood piece! I enjoyed chilling out with your game (and missed my stop...)

    Tiny note: The sitting position seems to get messed up at the very back of the train.

    Well I love this. There's one bad thing though: at the end, you're still in the train even if you can't see it :(

    Also, what kind of monster would sit facing the wall???

    PS: ooooh and the guy's knees are all screwed up?!

    I don't know if it was just me, but I don't get the point of this game. Sitting on a train, listening to music, and trying to get to the right stop? This game simply was not fun. It seems like an interesting concept on paper, and I'll give you credit for originality. However, this game falls flat on one of the most important qualities of the game: gameplay. The gameplay here is very dull and boring. You have good artistic ability and the music choice is good, but sorry. This game gets an overall score of 4/10. Try harder next time.

    A nice and relaxing concept. I found myself content to just sit and listen to the music, and watch as the scenery passed in the background. Not much in the way of gameplay, but not all games need much. I enjoyed this. Good job!

    Nice work. I really liked the art and most of the music that I could play. I didn´t count stations at first, so I arrived to right one later. It is a pity that it isn´t as entertaining as other games. Anyway, thanks for the train ride :)
