LOVE the concept but I never would have known what it was about if you didn't put it in the description. The way you conveyed the message could be better but I love the idea and the dialoge.

It's a really cool concept, with just the dialogue 'n all, but it seems a bit vague. It's cool how it is vague, but with out the describtion, it just seems like a depressed guy to me with no motivation. Ever way, keep goin' at it! :D Cheers.
