2019's Kind Words from Popcannibal is probably one of the sweetest ideas for a game ever made, and with it being a year old the developer went back to give it a bit of an upgrade.
The full title, Kind Words (lo fi chill beats to write to), is a bit of a mouthful but that's pretty much exactly what it is. A simple game about getting help and helping others, while you listen to some soothing tunes. I genuinely love it and funnily enough, I've left it open plenty to have some chill out beats to write to so it works as advertised for sure. As a game though? Surprisingly people are very nice inside it.
Popcannibal mentioned that over two million messages have been exchanged, so they came back to update it. There's a brand new Evergreen room if the others weren't to your liking. This comes along with a bunch of new sticks too because you can never have enough.
On top of that there's a new screensaver mode, with a few different modes, to just setup a little background ambience for whenever you feel you need it. This screensaver can show sweet messages people send, show off all your stickers and more. A sweet addition to a lovely game. It also had a Unity game engine upgrade and assorted bug fixes.
Never seen it? Check out the original trailer:
Want to send some letters and help others, while chilling to some good tunes? You can find Kind Words on Humble Store, Steam and itch.io.
EDIT: I've made a post on their Steam forum and sent a direct message on Twitter, so hopefully this can get cleared up.
EDIT 2: Heard back from the dev, they totally forgot to update Itch altogether. Just updated and tried it, and all features are working great.
