About This GameJames Reed is a detective called out one night to investigate the apparent suicide of a woman and the sudden disappearance of her husband, Thomas May. Play as both of these men in this short story-driven experience as you learn about how they lived, how they loved, how they lost, and how the decisions they made changed not only their lives, but of those around them.
Quiet Bay Studio's debut title, Gone Fireflies, is a brief, linear experience that lets you turn the story one page at a time by talking with the game's characters, finding and interacting with objects in the environment, and making choices in both action and conversation which determine the final pages of this interactive tale. This is a slower paced game that emphasizes dialogue and story over traditional RPG elements and adventure.
Beautiful game, heart crushing story. T_T <3. A very nice, sad story. Pretty light on gameplay, more of an interactive novel, but I was invested from the start and played through the entire 1.5-ish hours with a lump in my throat.. It's not a game, it's a story. No puzzles, riddles, etc. Sad story, so if you don't like to get sad emotions from games, because "games are for entertainment/amusement", skip it.

QBS. Update: New Dialogue System and Achievements!:
Gone Fireflies has been updated!
The latest version is live and should be working properly. As usual feel free to report any issues by leaving a message in the forum.
About the Old Save Files:
As I mentioned in my previous announcement, the update might cause some issues with the save files from the old build. While they will certainly work with the new version, they might cause progression breaking bugs in some locations of the game. My advise is to try them out and see if you can continue your adventure without any problems.
If you can't progress anymore, you can try to load a earlier save if you have one. If nothing helps, it's best to delete them from the menu and/or from the save folder of the game in Steam app. If some players do not wish to start the game over, they can hit me up in the forum and I'll try to send fresh save files working with the current version.
If you wish to get all the achievements, you'll need to restart from the beginning, though.
Thanks you so much once again to everyone who played and enjoyed the game so far.

. Update: Pacing, New Font and More:
Here we are again with another small update for Gone Fireflies. This time, I primarily focused on the pacing of the game after getting some valuable feedback from the players.
The issues with it since launch were how I implemented the dialogues, the transitions between scenes and some unnecessary characters movements and pauses during cut-scenes which made the game slow and hard to enjoy at time for some players. I spent the last 3 weeks fixing the whole game scene by scene, reviewing every dialogues, transitions and characters movements so now, hopefully, the game has a faster pace and less waiting between the playing parts.
Now, Gone Fireflies is and always will be a slow paced, narrative focused game so while my goal with this update was to make it less frustrating for the players, I also tried to keep the mood and the spirit of what this game is about.
The game has also a brand new font and tons of little fixes here and there.
Thanks a lot for stopping by and feel free to hit me up in the forum if you have any questions or issues with the game. I wish you all a great time!
