The art and writing is great. It's a shame some bits are missing, like the professor. And no audio is a bit of a let down (same for a lot of the games). I finished with Lina and Inky-Trinks, she had me at cookies!

@FloLevasseur: Thanks for letting me know! I cleaned up the way I was doing the loop, so try now.

Loved how the characters developed over the course of the game. Very good writing -- the students had fun personalities and intriguing backstories that encouraged me to play multiple times. Zoe's commentary on school was particularly thought-provoking :)

Hi, I would like to try the game but its frame doesn't appear on the page. I found this in the console : "SyntaxError: missing ; after for-loop initializer index.html:463".

Loved your game! The art is fantastic and the writing is well done!

A really cute, bite-sized dating sim with interesting characters. I loved it!

I loved the characters, they were really well drawn and well written and really adorable! Their personalities could be exaggerated more to make them stand out, but it was nice that they talked like real people. Gameplay and UI are smooth. I agree with the others about lack of music. But overall, great job! I really enjoyed playing :)

The art is very cute and well done. Wish there was music.

That was wonderful! I do look forward to trying different combinations of actions to see how things work out.

It could have used sounds, or maybe some more backgrounds? But it's clear that that effort went elsewhere,

Great graphics, needs sound to bring out the atmosphere and characters. :P The game itself works smoothly though. I like how you can scroll back to read previous dialogue.

Very lovely graphics, interesting story! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

Great looking art

D'aaaaawww this is the cutest

The art looks beautiful for this game. I'm not really big on dating sims, but I respect how well put together this game is. The dialogue system runs smoothly and the day tracking makes it clear how you have to split up your interactions. Good job!

I like the visual side of this game. I thought the dialogue part was just the intro but it turned out to be the whole game :P
It gives too little control to player so lack a bit of gameplay. I think this could be a cool addition to a main game mechanic though (what you study or who you team up with affects your stats etc.)
