I didn’t write reviews ever but this deserves one
Everything about this is beautiful. The story telling was so immersive. The pixelated art is absolutely amazing. The fact that
this is an app makes it even more impressive. Thank you to everyone who worked on this game and I really hope you guys make
another game like this
Wow, definitely worth a play
There’s not “gameplay” per say, but I enjoyed this game a lot. It made me feel at times, and has a very wholesome story
overall, and reminds me of something that seems so out of reach now. Would definitely recommend the VIP mode, I just didn’t buy
it cause I’m broke.
The best story mobile game I’ve ever played
The Kids We Were is a beautifully written story game that is surprisingly free. When I downloaded it I didn’t expect much but
when I played through it I slowly became more and more invested in the story. When I finished it the ending left me speechless. I
overall really enjoyed the game.
Touching, complex story
This story begins just as you would expect. Still quite beautiful with a hint of the nostalgia of childhood. But as it continues,
it becomes so much more than that. You are drawn in by all of the character and increasingly dynamic story. I would not only
recommend downloading the game but paying the
thank you so much for making this game! I didn’t expect the content at all but I’m so happy it had the themes it did. The town
was so wonderful and I loved all the thought that was put into all the characters, buildings, and collectible designs. I
mistakenly thought 14 was the last chapter for a whi

Do it you will not regret it
•It’s one of the best games I’ve ever played
•It’s kind of like a visual novel type game
•It truly is 100% free start to finish and you never have to wait a period of time before you can continue or anything l
OH. MY. WHATT?!?
This story TRANSPORTED me!! The story had so many different angles, and so many fun mysteries to really get your gears turning!
This is a time travel story on a whole new level, and it also adds wonderful current and past Japanese culture!! This game had so
much to love and always kept on giving and
Wholesome and Moving
This is one of the few free app store games that I genuinely feel should be paid for. The amount of effort and heart this little
and short game has trumps the majority of other unoriginal content on the app store. The story is very well written and I loved
the dialogue. Even if it was just translate
This game ending made me cry. And I never cry. This game touched my heart. Please make more or at lest Make part two soon.
Put in English
This story was so beautifully woven it just made my heart drop every time a plot twist happened and it was so enthralling.
Pretty dang great
The attention to detail, the collectible items, the descriptions of the catalog items, the character’s hair, hair color, eye
colors, height, the attention to detail of the town and shops and signs, is mind blowing.
The fact that in the credits we see only one person was responsible for all 70+ of t
This is a really great game. It has humor,adventure and a great storyline. I would definitely recommend. The only thing that
bothered me was the pause between screens always got me turned around.
Great game, and great story. I really enjoyed it
Beautifully well done and fair play!
This games is too good to be true! As many said here, I don't often give review but this heart warming game deserve!
The script is great, the animation/set are beautifull, the ost is spot on!
I couldn't stop playing until I got to the end!
I'm trying to avoid anyspoiler, but I felt like I was playi
Love it, pls make a sequel!
Omg, I love this game so much. The storyline is amazing, and the graphics are really good too! Thank you to the people who made
this game happen, or else I wouldn't get to experience such an amazing game. The characters, plot, graphics, etc. are just so
good, that I want a sequel to this so much. Th
Kensuke Imura, you are a genius. Well done with this touching game.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover
This game is just... wow.. I was hooked on it and the ending made me shed tears, I’m not sure how I didn’t cry more, it’s
such a good story and really well done, I recommend it to anyone looking for a amazing story! It’s like a book but in a game!

I love this game and I want to know if he gets married after he turn old
This game is so amazing ! But I have one question , was I the only one that cried during playing it ?? And was I the only one who
finished this story in a day ?? Please tell me I’m not the only one -
Best Game That I Have Ever Played
This is literally the most amazing game. Ever. And the ending is seriously just beautiful. I love this game so much lol
It's just too sad.
I can't see it end like this, your game is pure amazing!
BEST FRICKING STORY GAME!!
So I saw this game on the game of the day and instantly saw the description, I thought “this sounds like a good short story
game” I played and I was honestly amazed, I haven’t finished the game yet but I can tell u it’s fricking awesome, it’s a
bit confusing at the beginning but then you get the gis
Satisfying and emotional
This was a true tear jerker. I learned a lot of little nuances about Japanese culture and everyday life. I won’t spoil the
story, but keep working at it, and your emotional investment will truly be rewarded!
Definitely worth the play through.
I’m not the type to write reviews on anything but this game was so beautiful. The storyline had me star struck as I played it
non stop until the morning. I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone who loves games, etc. This is a one play game only.
I got emotional a few times, hit a spot for
I don’t normally write reviews, but this game is easily the best app I’ve ever played. The art is so beautiful, the storyline
is creative and very engaging, the soundtrack is wonderful. Do you know how many bugs there were? None. It’s so hard to find
something like that. My only complaint is that it
i can’t even begin to explain how well done this game is and there’s nothing i could say to give it justice other than, get
it. invest your time into completing this game and going on the adventure, i promise it’ll be worth it and you’ll come out
enlightened. beautiful graphics and story line.
I played all the way to chapter 14 it was good I was a little bit spooked but I’m ready for a continuation for the game
Plz make a sequel!
This game was amazing but I don’t think you should have made that alternate ending so secret. I almost didn’t even get to see
it because when I reached chapter 14 I was about to delete the game thinking I had finished. It’s only the fact that I wasn’t
satisfied with the ending and the fact that I th
This is a great game! It’s a unique interactive story, with mysteries to solve, items to find, and a story line.
Photo Mode is Dope
Taking photos with Free Mode is super fun!
The best challenge is seeing how to get props in place using the camera tracking system.
It’s always satisfying seeing the Camera Lock into place, allowing you to manipulate your player either in or out of the photo.
From there, it’s using perspective an
it’s so good. well written, beautiful story line, and so much more. dont even think about whether or not you should play it.
just get it. period.
(also there are ads but you can either pay or just deal with it. it’s not bad tbh)

I LOVE THIS GAME
Omg I have been playing for 1 night nonstop and I love it I love the story amazing graphics for a early stage of the game and
mostly I LOVE that the game dose not force you to watch a add every 2 seconds a few thing I would like you to add are getting at
lest 5 or 4 coins per mystery you find and so
I want to be a kid again!
I love Japanese/Korean movies and I’m really immersed in the stories they tell, but I have yet to play a game of the same
nature. This by far will be the stepping stone than sends me on to path unknown. I love it more than I thought I would and I am
really happy I took a chance. Amazing work from ev
This is a amazing story with love, sadness, mystery and anger. I think that this story is worth the time and ads.
I rarely leave reviews but this is easily one of the best games I have ever played. After a while into the story, I purchased the
VIP mode to remove ads and support the developer.
Very good story telling, awesome soundtrack and engaging mysteries. Try it out for at least 10 minutes, you won’t be d
Mirai : the future and it’s up to you
The story, plot twist, the chances you give to actually change the future. It’s honestly the most perfect game filled with
sweetness, adventure, thrilling experience and love all in one.
Big kudos to the team who created this and I’m so glad I got to play this.
Looking forward to more games by you
Really great game!! Love the story line, and you don’t have to pay a dime! It’s been a fantastic story so far!!
Great game with great story
I love GAGEX game, and I knew I had to write a review after playing. The story is tied up together so well, and I was absolutely
immersed in it. I love every little details you put in the game on top of the main story line too, it really make the little town
alive. (Oden cart dude, I see you there)

An endearing game that makes you feel nostalgic. The music is like sweet melodies. Overall I love, love this game.
This game has the best storyline ever in a Mobile
I can’t wait for part 2 I hope that the mystery of who wrote the book will be solved and also Minito will get his sister and dad
The story is heart warming and sad but has adventure and humor
Overall a MUST PLAY
Really really good
Honestly, I don’t play many good games but this is just amazing. Every block placed and very shadow detail is amazing, not to
mention the story line.
The only thing I would like to know is what happened to the others. I know the one with blonde hair (in the bad ending) becomes
alcoholic like his da
This game is the most wonderful story game ever created.. it’s so sad at the end, it’s left unfinished.. but that just makes
it prettier.. Wonderful storytelling, it takes time to the next level. It makes me wish I had never played it, but only so I can
play it again, and feel the emotions so vividl
About the game
Its a good game and good story! Please make the kids we were 2! Ty! Well
Done game again.
Best game I have ever played
Me personally didn’t know this game was going to be this beautiful. The beginning was sad but when minato goes to the past and
fixes everything is just a heartwarming moment. I really love how catching the game is. Every ending of a chapter makes you want
to reveal more of it and find out more. The
So I just finished this game.
And, oh my god. Seriously, I know every review on the face of the App Store begins with ‘I don’t usually write reviews...’
but I really don’t.
However. I will for this one, because I just spent the day playing it, and now that I’ve finished it I am all up in tears.
Trying my best to tiptoe around
Lots of Crashes
I don’t know if it’s just me, but this game crashes every so often, especially when going from one area to the other! Other
than that, the game is actually pretty good so far.
It was decent.
The storyline was great and there was quite a bit of items to collect but didn’t do anything. I collected most for the special
events but all I got was granny’s prize. The ending was also a letdown for me since I was expecting more. The game has a decent
overall story but at points in the story felt
