We had an amazing time playing this game! It was meant to be a cute stress-reliever, and while it took us on an unexpected emotional rollercoaster, we really enjoyed the journey.  I believe we got all the endings, but let us know if we missed anything! <3

Dear Cantusmori,

After watching a playthrough of this wonderful game today, I created an itch.io account just so I could write this comment to you. Thank you so much for creating this game that, among all the many games I have watched while stagnating in my pot, stood out as the one that made me think deeply about my life. There are so many games out there that describe living with depression and/or anxiety as a terrifying nightmare, but this depiction is so much more relatable to me. I just want to stay there, safely in my pot, and not face the scary world outside, which, as Froggy so rightly said, makes it so much harder to talk to people who will ask about what I’m doing in life, which makes me want to stay inside even more in a vicious cycle. Thank you for so very accurately describing how I feel, which I find so hard to put into words. Thank you for reminding me that I don’t need to validate my existence, just being a pebble on the beach is enough. I hope that I, too, can leave my pot soon and discover who I truly am and what makes me happy!

On a totally different note, I absolutely adore the super cute art and cosy aesthetic of this game!

Once again, thank you for creating a game that made me think and feel so deeply. Sorry if I misinterpreted the meaning of anything, and sorry for venting, but I just love this game so much and I think I really needed this. Despite what Froggy might think, I have a feeling that I will remember him forever!

Thank you for the sweet comment! 
There isn't an intended meaning to the things I write; they are just what they are haha.
I'm happy you found meaning in it, just like I'm sure you will in other parts of life too :3
(also p.s., being a pebble is enough, but....maybe someday you can also become a big mountain!! sorry just being silly :3)

Funny, i mahaged to convince Froggy to leave the pot, but i never managed to leave it myself. Unlike him, i never really had any important people, or either i don't feel like i have any, so this part isnt very relatable. Even though i experience a lot of fears and anxieties about stuff like the future - exams, finding a job, getting drafted, maybe dying in some stupid war. And just like him i don't really know what i like, oe even who i am. Everything is so scary. If i was in his place, i would stay in that pot. But, well, already doing that, rotting alive. The last few months, or maybe years, feels like the same grey day.

I don't think i'm sorry if anyone finds my comment disgusting, pathetic or disturbing. Sure, it is, and i am, but who are you to judge strangers on the internet. In the end of the day, that's what we are. Strangers. I lied when saying i care about Froggy, and i feel like most people lie when they say they care about others.

Anyway, thanks Cantusmori for making this game.

Well ahh you know sometimes you see a cute little snail on the road, and you just pick it up and put it in the grass so no one steps on it.
Ofc you probably won't remember the snail years later; you're not really friends. But in that moment  you cared enough, and I think that's fine. I guess sometimes we're preoccupied with our own troubles to notice others. But we do what we can. The snail might be a bad analogy haha (it probably is lol) but I really don't think there's a need to think too deeply about caring for others lol.

Sorry about what you're going through, I have an online friend in a similar situation - it sucks... Though we are alive, so we still have the ability to do what we can. Anyways, thanks for playing my silly little froggy story! No need to think too deeply about it, its not really meant to be relatable or anything haha. Also I don't think you're pathetic, just a human lol. All the best and may you one day be like the froggy in your pfp -silly and smiling :3

Thanks for the reply! I just got really emotional while playing, especially at 3 AM, that happens sometimes, and for some reason i felt like an indie game comment section is a good place to vent. 

I wish all good things for you and for all people who feel lost like me. Maybe one day i'll make my own game and i'll mention you in the credits and/or add Froggy somewhere, as an npc, if you're ok with that. For some reason i feel like i should do that. Maybe it's because this game made me cry(which i'm doing rn), and my most favourite games are the ones that make me do that. 

Goodnight.

Thanks! No worries about venting btw. And yes, I'm not opposed to my projects and characters used as inspiration for others' projects. That's the fun thing about media, it inspires other works haha. Regardless, all the best, little Berry! :3

Such a cute game! I wasn't expecting the twist near the end. The emotions were high while playing this game *sniff*. The music was also excellent! Thank you for making this game.

Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad the music was okay haha

I liked this game. It was very sad as it almost made me cry, yet Froggy (and the rest of the game) is so very cute.

Aww thank you so much ^.^

This was a very emotionally captivating story. I love this little froggy, and it touches on some hard truths and fact! All in all a lovely game, and very relatable. Thank you for creating such a thought provoking and emotionally touching story/game. 


Aww thank you so much!

omgggg this game joined the list of my favorite comfort games!! (⁠〒⁠﹏⁠〒⁠) i cried a lot and and I identified a lot with the character.. also, congratulations on the great work, amazing game and that really left my heart warm!! ♡⁠˖⁠꒰⁠ᵕ⁠༚⁠ᵕ⁠⑅⁠꒱

Thank you! Here's to more warm hearts 🎉💕

OMG. This game brought tears to my partner and I. Great writing. Emotional VA that has you really think about lost and life. We had to stop playing for bit because we just started crying together and way we haven't cried in a long time. Powerful scene near the end. I hope Froggy is okay and that they have a happy life.

Hey Cantus. Not that you've much a reason to care, but I am from Australia, and I first played Froggy Pot in my first year of high school, 2 years ago. I did not understand it much, but played it through anyways, I enjoyed your art style and the lovely music, but other than that moved on rather quickly, and thought nothing more of it until recently, when it revisited my mind a week or so ago, and I only just got around to finding and replaying it tonight. I dropped out of high school at the start of this year, moved out, and started work. Days blurred together eventually and I've only recently began to find meaning and rythym in my life. Froggy Pot is amazing, and after all I've experienced over the last couple years, it connected with me deeper than any other game has before. I cried quite a bit, admittedly, and was emotional throughout, but eventually got through it TwT. I just wanted to say thank you for creating this, and that it has helped me observe the progress i have made in my own life over the past 2 years, and that means alot to me. Love, from the land down under.

Hey! Like Froggy said, no reason is needed to care ^^
Thank you for playing and the lovely comment, it really makes me really happy and I'm happy for you! High school can be rough haha. Sometimes I think the world maybe goes too fast for a lot of people, but I think it's okay to go at your own pace and appreciate all the small silly things in life. Froggy pot is a special project to me too. Congrats on the two year(and many more to come) life progress!!

10/10 marvelous game with cute art style this made me tearing up cause I prepare to play a cute game but i love that twist keeping it up!

Thank you!

This game made me cry. I love it! And I hope that Froggy will live a happier life.

I am touched! I love it!


Also, I found a pattern in the "about" section of the game that looks suspeciously like morse code? can someone help me?

I think it's just the dividing line because it's regular, but if you're still curious I can give you the results of my parse based on the table:WPWPWPWPWP

(I don't think the letters make sense)

This was the sweetest treat to discover especially after getting my teeth pulled a few days ago. 5/5 Froggy smiles!

this game is so cute it! made me  cry TvT

Didn't take the, "small side of existential crisis" seriously and now I feel exposed (っ °Д °;)っ

Humour aside, I enjoyed going through this. Will definitely purchase the wallpaper, the art is so cute and calming!

[I played this game during a livestream]
