    Wonderfully written copy and the pixel art is just lovely.


    The onboarding experience for adding new reminders could be a little more streamlined and engaging.

    I've had my eye on this app for awhile due to it's visuals and overall concept. Self care and mental health are very important to me and it's nice to see more products thinking in this space. I especially appreciate their directory of mental health resources and hotline numbers - it really shows the team cares.

    Lovely design and messages, plus how they don't want you setting too many reminders!


    Nothing really, though just as some feedback, I found the Set Activity vs Set Reminder bit a little confusing initially!

    Find the reminders non-intrusive overall, so that works well!

Love the pixel art. Very nostalgic as someone that grew up on SNES/Genesis.

@rrhoover Thank you!!! and very much same. I also used to obsessively play an MMORPG called Maplestory as a teen and it was a huge inspiration to me!

@amberdiscko ooh, Maplestory! Similar browser-based game: my brother used to play Runescape all the time.

I’ve been beta testing this app for over a month and because of that I’ve been drinking more water + going to bed on time! I love the cute notifications and it’s very helpful for me to stay on top of my mental health.
