The ending was fantastic, and I think you really nailed the feeling of the mystic west. Love the black and white story sections too! Well done team, I wish you luck in the future.

This felt great after I got over the slowness at first :)

Technical notes: the window should probably capture the mouse and resolutions would ideally not be restricted. You could also work with letterboxing (none during color mode, cinematic letterboxes during flashback mode?) On my 1920x1080 screen I had to use 1680x1050.
