Your grandchildren are visiting you at the old folk's home. Relive and pass on your best memories.


  • In each story/minigame, there is no win condition. Each game is there to service as a fun way to proceed through the dialogue. A game ends when the dialogue is complete.
  • In the surfing minigame, you cannot actually help out grandpa from the sea, just attempt to pick him up to continue the dialogue and story until the end.
  • In the lullaby minigame, you must hold the left or right arrow key all the way to the end, where you'll see a blue pulse, then do this for the opposite direction. Dialogue proceeds after you do two pulses (one left, one right) — repeat.

I created an itch account just to tell you how wonderful your game is and how grateful I am to you for creating this game. It brought tears to my eyes because I remembered how many nights my mom stayed awake at my bed because I had asthma.

I almost forgot that but I will think of it every day now and I will try to be a better person. Thank you.

Thank you, Dahll, for sharing your experience and being vulnerable - our families are really the best things we have in life, and our parents and grandparents have given us so much. ❤️

This is a really nice game, very heartfelt. The music was great!!!

This game makes me a little teary. It's wonderful and has a strong message. Thanks! 

thanks for playing and sharing your video!

What a lovely little game this was.
Thank you for creating it! :D

thanks Paul! That means a lot!
