This is very sweet of you! Thank you for taking a time to leave a comment 🙏
Since this story was written for a month long game jam, I had to be a bit selective about how many scenes I could feasibly write in the timeframe. I thought establishing the characters as teenagers, then doing a timeskip to their adult lives, would be pretty fun, since it'd give the readers a chance to imagine what might have happened in these missing years for themselves. I'm glad it worked out!

Thank you very much!

Love the animations on the sprites, the character designs, and the choice of music. The writing is suitably atmospheric and feels a little old-fashioned too, which matches with the atmosphere.

The sprites also look so pretty against the moonlight window background, the lighting is lovely!

It's a really atmospheric little VN, I enjoyed it a lot!

The code for choosing your language isn't working on your phone for whatever reason. I'm not sure what the issue as it works just fine on my Android device. I can only suggest that you delete the game and redownload it, and if it still doesn't work you'll either have to play it on a PC/laptop (if you have one) or give the game a miss.

Not sure what you mean by 'black and white image': are you talking about the Ren'py loading screen?
If so, it means the game never booted up at all. Maybe the download was corrupted. You can try deleting it and reinstalling it to see if it works this time.

What do you mean by the starting screen? Do you mean the language chooser, the main menu, or something else?

A short story that manages to say a lot. Using the Ren'py default UI makes it all seem even more real. It's very bleak and grim (and rightfully so: it's about a distressing topic), but I appreciate how earnest and heartfelt it feels.

I wouldn't say this is a 'nice story', but it's definitely an interesting experience. Thank you for creating and sharing it!

It looks like somebody retracted their permission for having their game in the bundle, so now the bundle isn't showing up again.

Geist sure is taking gaslight gatekeep guyboss to a new level lmao
His poisonous remarks weren't very fun to read (though I suppose that is the point haha), but I do like his VA a lot. I love both fo the VAs for this VN, actually; they both did a really great job!

The UI for this VN was impeccable, and I really liked the filtered photo BGs. I'm a big fan of them: they help root the story in the 'real world' so it feels even more immersive. The animated sprites/CGs look gorgeous too; it's clear a lot of work went into this.

For a free VN, it's very polished! You did a great job putting it together in a month!

Oh, and Kalei is such a sweetheart. I'm glad my MC ended up with him in my playthrough; it was really nice seeing Kalei get the MC to open to him by being so patient and understanding. It was very charming!

This was very well-written! For such a heavy and uncomfortable topic, I think it's impressive you pulled it off so well. Both Chloe and Matthieu felt very 'real', and I liked how Matthieu wasn't presented as some cackling villain sterotype with no moral scruples. It felt much more realistic that he was a bit hesitant about everything (or was he? It does feel like he was leading Chloe on, but then lost his nerve when things got 'too real' and he started to think about the irl consequences), and he was grappling with his own self-doubt (but, then again, he grapples with his doubts in such an overblown and dramatic way it guilts Chloe into wanting to console him, when isn't fair when she's so much younger than he is...)

Aah, this was very good. The characters are so nuanced, and there are multiple ways to read their behaviour. I also imagine some of Matthieu's disgust towards Lolita comes from relating a little too much to the protagonist, so it hits too close to home? It does make his hatred feel rather ironic haha

And I felt so many feelings for Chloe. She's in way over head head but doesn't realise it until it's too late. Her desperate desire to prove she's 'mature enough' feels very relatable in an uncomfortable way. I also think being able to make choices for her in the narrative works really well, since it highlights just how divided and confused she is. The choices feel very natural as a result and make her indecision/uncertainty feel more well-realised than if this had been a linear story.

Also, major props for the UI. I love the wax crayon-ish vibe the UI has, and the sort of 'cutesy' art style. It might not seem appropriate for such a dark story at a glance, but I think it works unsettlingly well when you consider Chloe is constantly insisting she's an adult in the story; she's mature; she knows what she wants. She says it over and over again, but the story is told from her POV, and the cute/more 'childish' UI elements and the art style really serve to undercut all of these things she keeps trying to tell herself.

Also got to love all of Chloe's talks about classic lit. It comes across that she is, indeed, a very well read teen, which is probably why she thinks she's mature enough to handle a relationship like this (and I think Matthieu also encourages her to think she's oh-so-mature b/c of her literary tastes too, so he weaponises it against her). It's a nice detail to add to her character.

Anyway, this was a painfully honest VN which feels very heartfelt. Thank you for creating it!

A big part of Yuel and Tavi's relationship is that Yuel has some pretty serious mental health issues but Tavi loves him nonetheless. It's an important part of their dynamic, so I'm glad it's appreciated 🙏

Aaa thank you so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed it! ♡
This comment was one of the first things I read when I woke up and it made me happy for the rest of the day haha >_<

I'm very fond of Yuel and Tavi too, their dynamic is a lot of fun to write... I am very fond of all the banter ♡
I'm sorry that the story made you cry though! Hopefully the ending made up for it!
It's fun to put them in dramatic and tense scenarios, but I don't like being too mean to them most of the time so I had to give them a happy ending haha ;;

Thank you! ♡

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
And the German translator did a good job, they were very thorough with it!

Thank you very much!

just like real life... crazy...

If you're ok with m/f romance too then I've also written (as far as nsfw stories go):
- The Language of Love
- My Lovey-Dovey Demon
- Sweetest Monster (this one is really grim though)
- Sweetest Monster Refrain (this one is also really grim)

Aaah let's see...
When you say f/m, I presume you mean stories with a female MC pursuing a male LI? I've written a few nsfw m/f VNs (male MC with female love interests), but no nsfw f/m VNs.

As for my commercial nsfw m/m VNs, there's only Unluckily in Love and All Idleness and Ephemera so far.

Bit of a belated reply, but thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the characters! I had a lot of fun writing their banter too hehe >w<
The artists all did a great job, I think both the leads turned out very nice!
Tysm!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! <3

The main character isn't customisable, so yes.

Ah that's very sweet, thank you! I'm glad that you enjoyed it!
And yeah the title is a bit misleading haha, it's very much a silly and goofy story where nothing bad happens!

Aw this was so cute and soft!
There's a lot of subtle comedy here (like all the stuff about Sol's house smelling of soup) but the general tone of this was really sweet and relaxing. Love the UI; the notepaper design really adds to the high school themeing, and the coloured textboxes for Sol and Chet are really charming!
The art is very cute too; I love how expressive the sprites are! It was a really nice short read, tysm for making and sharing it!

Read this after reading Like Shattered Glass; the relationship in this one feels a little more reciprocal, even if it's not particularly cheerful. There's some nice camera work in this one too (and I really like the art, it's very soft), but I think the writing and character relationships really shine here. You were able to tell a lot with a short wordcount! It feels very bittersweet, and the music helps!

It's very atmospheric and moody!

This is a really polished little VN!

Though this jam's restrictions are pretty strict, you did a really good job with what you were allowed to work with. The single CG is very dynamic (there are so many expressions!), and the text placement + the dynamic camera angles really work.

The ominous music suits the tone of the story, and I like how gritty and dark it all feels. It's a little funny the character names are so goofy since the story feels so serious otherwise, but that does make the characters stand out and feel more unique!

This was a really cute and fun lil game! It was nice going through to try all the different hairstyle and outfit combos, and your art looks crisp as always. Thank you for making it!

If you can't find the artist on twitter, you can check out their itchio account here instead!

That's very kind of you! Thank you!
Feel free to translate it to Chinese if you wish, though there is a Chinese translation that's being worked on at the moment which should release some time during March (hopefully)!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed reading Lonely hehe ;w;
If you want more well-written yuri VNs, one of my favourites are A Little Lily Princess by Hanako Games! Studio Elan has also released some really high quality yuri stuff, though they're quite well-known so you're probably aware of their works already!

Aaa thank you so much for your comment! This is so kind I can't even haha ;;;
I'm really glad that you enjoyed reading about my boys! They're my favourite characters so I'm always happy when more people give them a chance🙏 I'm glad the writing was enjoyable too!

I like writing about Yuel and Tavi A Lot haha so I've written various stories with them in different settings, falling in love under different circumstances... So I hope you enjoy the other AUs as much as you enjoyed this one! Thank you! ❤️

I'm sure she'll have fun chewing on them!

The translation company has not finished the translation yet. I don't know when it will be completed, but I'll post a devlog when it's done.

I think the world needs more Yuel/Tavi in general tbh haha ;;
I hope you enjoy the story 🙏

Ah that's so sweet of you! I'm glad that you liked it!
Grave digger is very cute, I'm also very fond of her hehe ;w;

Thank you very much! I'm glad that you enjoyed it! <3

The vibes are immaculate and the art is really pretty; love the colour palette too. I really enjoyed it, thank you for creating it!

I think it'd probably be too difficult to add any extra content to this VN, given the large number of existing translations which would also need to be updated, but it's a nice idea. It's very aesthetic haha

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! 🙏

Thank you so much for your kind comment! I'm happy that you enjoyed it!
I like the UI a lot as well; the UI artist did a really great job on it! It suits the theme and matches the artwork really nicely!
I hope my girls will give you the motivation you need! >_<;;

All of my VNs are made in Ren'py, so they should all have the same accessibility features!

No.
