The original Butterfly Soup is one of my favourite VNs of all time, and I was so glad to see these characters again. Thank you for blessing us with more of it.

As the resident Tabbi in my tabletop group, I relate very hard to this.
Thank you for giving us more of these cat nerds! I'm really inspired by it, and one day I swear I'll get off my lazy horse and try to write something in the same vein. The world needs more fun catperson stories that stomp all over the gender binary!
Oh gosh, I'm sorry >_<
The scene used to be a lot more upfront to the point of the character dissociating, but I decided that was too far and toned it down to the current version. Do you think it's still intense enough to add to the content warnings?
Alright, one last batch of ideas:
- Move the folder so it's at C:\GameJam or something. It's possible renpy isn't reacting well to non-ASCII characters in your user name - if that's not a problem then ignore this.
- Apparently antiviruses can still target programs like this even without leaving logs? It'll also do things like delete files without telling you. You'd have to redownload, whitelist it and maybe run the game as an administrator for good measure. (This nonsense is why I don't use antiviruses anymore - Windows Defender and some common sense have served me fine so far.)
Really hope one of those is enough to sort this out!
A couple of things I found from searching online:
- If you're on Windows, check your windows c++ libraries are up to date. I think it's Microsoft C++ 2008 that Renpy uses.
- If the file name/directory uses non-ASCII characters, ren'py may not be able to recognise it? I'm not sure how this one works but changing your system encoding might help.
A few troubleshooting ideas:
- If you haven't unzipped/extracted the game+other contents from the zip file, you'll need to do that. I'm realising now I didn't clarify that in install instructions and have added that accordingly.
- Make sure it's on an accessable part of your computer (so not in Program Files or something)
- Occasionally antiviruses may respond to ren'py games with false positives, so you might need to list the game as an exception.
If that doesn't help I'm not sure what the problem is. I've had one other person say that the latest Windows 10 update may have dislodged something but I don't have any proven advice to offer. Sorry! >_<
Enjoying the game so far, but just want to report a bug I've found - seems that the script hits an exception during the date with Naomi on Level 5 if you're using 'they' pronouns. You can skip past it and keep playing but I thought I should report it somewhere!
EDIT: Another quick thing I noticed - unsure if it's only while romancing her, but when you talk to QueenBee to back you up during Level 6, her jacket changes back to the L7 jacket halfway through the dialogue.
Bug report: The game seems to crash not long into the first scene at the gym.
I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.
While running game code:
File "game/script.rpy", line 3248, in script
ScriptError: could not find label 'postbranch'.
(Liking the game so far, btw!)
Fun little RPG! Entertaining characters, and I'm curious about where the sequel hooks from the Oracle fight are headed.
I did come across a few glitches, though, and I thought I'd pass them on:
- There's a spot on the shallows map where you get stuck if you walk on it. It's the tile above the first reed when you enter the driftwood room.
- During the grotto scene where the party’s split up, the party consists of Riya and Stella when it should be Evander and Stella.
- Returning to the corridor after the aforementioned scene gives a placeholder text line. Surfacing back plays the last grotto scene a second time; Riya still recovers when resting at the Pyramid campsite.
- The exit from the proving ground over the abyssal rift goes to the wrong location on the next map.
- Thunder Shock doesn’t seem to work as intended; when used underwater the first hit never triggers. This means it's actually weaker underwater rather than stronger.
These are mostly minor trifles, though. Once again, great work!
