I rarely try Visual Novels, mostly because too many of them are overly lewd in some way. However, Missed Messages is of a different sort and it's quite beautiful.
Developed by Angela He, it's completely free and surprisingly well done. The theme is quite a mature one too, with it touching on suicide and self-harm. It also touches on romance, there's a few memes (who doesn't love a good meme) and so on. What's striking initially is the artwork, it's seriously good. Great chilled-out soundtrack to go along with it too, the quality here really is impressive.
There's also four different endings and it doesn't take long to go through. The cheerful side of it certainly didn't last long in my first play-through and (without spoilers) I sort-of expected what would happen but it was still done rather well. Short games can be quite powerful and make you think and this certainly did the job.
You can find it free on itch.io and Steam and donate if you enjoyed the experience. You can also see more games made by He on their itch page, I'm certainly interested in seeing something longer from them given how impressed I was with it.
