I made an account in this just to add this comment.

I am absolutely in love with this game.  Back when I was first starting out with Gravity Falls just under a year ago, I came across your tumblr and promptly fell even more for Ford.  I think yours was the very first fan content I came across.  I don't frequent Tumblr as much, but I'm always making it a point to visit your blogs, and I'm so glad that this became a reality!  You're such a treasure to this fandom.  May your Sixers be forever soft and wonderful. ♡

The Stans were never my favorite characters or characters that I would think about swooning, but this is still a great and entertaining game nonetheless. 

Just playing this to see what it is...
