Oh wow! Congratulations! 馃嵕馃馃帀馃帄 and thank you soo much!!鉂わ笍馃グ馃珎馃檶 This was a nice surprise to wake up too! I can't wait, I think Ill try his route out today馃槅! Take some much needed rest and have a great day! Appreciate you馃挄.

Played the first chapter for everyone's best endings the past couple days and I LOVED it. This game is amazing. From the art & to the plot? I love it all鈽猴笍馃檶. Great work! & Thank you for continuing to work on such a great game,  can't wait to see more!鉂わ笍

Tbh, I dont think that's how taking over a game from another company works at all, because then it's a completely different game and you might as well make a whole new game vs continuing what you were doing. I just meant that I think people would be happy the game gets done at all馃槄. Since Ypress is usually just the financer in cases like that. 

Ypress mostly leaves things like the original story and art up to the first devs. Take for example: Sentimental Trickster, which Ypress took over. No non con whatsoever.

And personally? To each their own, if people want to play games w/non con. Darker games can actually help heal you from your own trauma (speaking from experience). I also personally think that Ypress games, is one of the few sex positive/consenting LGBTQ+ indie companies out there with the majority of their games being 100% consensual except a few. And only a couple of those few containing non con sex with clear warning descriptions.

But if you dislike them, you dislike them. To each their own, right?

I'm not sure what you mean? Ypress isn't taking over helping this game, so you shouldn't spread misinformation馃槄. Maybe you thought that because of Jackie being mentioned whose taking over? But she's her own person/individual, and isn't a part of any company as far as I know. 

Also, if Ypress did take over, I think everyone would mostly just be glad that they'd offer their support & finances just to get it done and to have something馃ぃ. 

Also, when you take over another game already in the process of being made, you tend to leave the story/art to whomever was doing so beforehand...in order to help keep the story cohesive, or to find someone new who can match that style.

Of course! And world building really is fun, I find it one of my fav aspects of story writing, when I manage to write here or there. And it'll be interesting to see your side project either way! Nothing wrong with overlapping paths, those stories can be fun too! Can't wait to see your future games馃槅馃檶!

Wow! That's amazing! Thanks for all of your hard work! It's very much appreciated 馃グ馃珎馃檶. Take all of the time you need 馃槅! I'm currently playing this game on Steam which I got in Nov I believe? I then also recently bought your other game Changeling after I came across Gilded Shadows and found myself really loving your games馃槅, they're both so amazing (even tho im not done with both yet馃檲), and I'm loving how you world build. 

Omg and let's not forget the branching? All of the RO routes you make, seem to have their own different branching  personal stories/paths with the MC.  Versus like you playing an MC on very similar routes for all of them with mostly common route activity 馃ゲ. So yeah, please keep up the great work! I hope you continue to make more amazing games after you finish Gilded Shadows! I would love to keep playing your stories. They're so fun鈽猴笍 (and the romance is a plus馃ぃ)!

Sorry to hear KS can be such a hassle馃槩, super happy you'll be working on this amazing game tho, im 100% excited for this, and can't wait! 馃槅馃檶

Oh wow! This looks super amazing! I can't wait until the full game is out馃憖, will you be doing a KS at all? Or just working on this game until it's completed? 馃槅 Anyways, keep up the great work and can't wait to try this out!

This is so great!! Really can't wait for more content. Is this basically a Yandere only dating sim? Either way, so much fun, and who knew I would find myself loving it this much. If you wanted to expand this game or earn more support for it, I actually think if you advertised it on twitter for a few months or more, before lets say doing a Kickstarter? That you'd probably get the support you could use to further expand this with more love interests, CGs/BGs or even past the 14 days! Either way, can't wait for more content, plz keep up the great work XD 

Oh man, that stinks that it's inactive. I had no idea. Im not sure how to help, since that's originally where I got my link invite. And I don't think I can share discord links, I believe only the owner of the discord can make new ones. Guess they also don't want any more people going onto their discord...馃槶馃拃

Omg! I can't wait so much! Congrats on finishing it!!馃槅馃檶馃帀

In regards to the discord which I haven't been onto in a few months, it seems like there has finally been more of an update.  Here's what Parival has said as of recently this past summer:

So...I don't know what this means for the game, nor why they can't provide these same updates on their other platforms. I also just wonder if it will really end up getting finished? Idk tbh. As of right now, I feel like we all just have more questions vs answers/replies. It's still not guaranteed in my opinion, based off of how Parival has dealt with things via communications/their customers/audience. 

So, Im not sure I want to go with Parival's words just yet, until we actually see some more progress being done visually, and we hear news from Jackie's end. But, this new update still doesn't really change my stance on how I feel with things in regards with how communications have gone down. I guess only time will tell 馃し鈥嶁檧锔, hopefully it will come out some day. 

And to Parival, I do hope, that you get better soon for what it's worth, despite how I feel about the state of this game. I know personally and on a similar level some of the things you're going through, and I hope you've managed to get some help for your mental/physical health. Because, that's always the most important, at the end of the day.

For anyone struggling with mental health in the US (I live here, so I can't unfortunately provide other means of help as I wouldn't know of any):

1st Source:

Suicide & Crisis Lifeline- SMS: 988 Call: 988

Official Website: 988lifeline.org (available 24/7)

2nd Source: plz text HOME to 741741

Official Website: crisistextline.org (available 24/7)

Either of these two sources are available at any time, for any crisis, or even not in a crisis --but you're still a bad place? Will work from anywhere in the US.

Still need help, but don't feel like you need those sources? Then I also highly recommend reaching out to your medical network/insurance, or another adult/family member who can refer you to available therapists/counselors in your area asap. It's always good to strive to take care of our mental health, and that we see to it that it doesn't get worse.

I posted on here 2yrs ago in support/encouragement/and hopes that everything would be all right with this game and for the dev, since it hadn't been too long at that time since a nice, detailed update was provided. I can without a doubt say that this project is dead to me right now, and I'm sorry to see it so. Perhaps it will come out some day, perhaps it won't. Personally, they've had two years, almost three now --to give a detailed update/response on what's realllly going on with the game, and what the future realistically holds for it/them. 

But they've personally chosen to avoid every question asked, NOT to provide any detailed updates, and constantly ignore the questions about the game, or vaguely answer them on their discord server as being in a "haitus" or "working on it on the side." That's bad business/customer service to me. So as far as I feel and believe? This game is dead and  I probably will veer away from supporting Parival in the future. There has to be give and receive for trust to take place.

Hi, been a while since I been on here. Not sure if I've asked this before (so, sorry if I have). I wanted to know if there were any characters whose romance routes were 100% complete that I could start? If not, that's totally okay. Keep up the great work! Just got my Glass Hearts key from my KS messages, congrats on it being finished! Def looking forward to both games! XD

Yay, I'm glad I could help explain! And I figured as much too. The art style for both games looks different, so I figured you had 2 completely different teams going, and I think it's great you can hop back and forth to work on the games when you have to wait for more art content from another馃檶. And completely agreed, most if not all indie dev groups (or smaller game companies) need to be able to work on multiple projects if they want to stay afloat as developers. So I'm very happy that you're able to put in the hard work and dedication to man both teams and keep going, so thank you馃槝馃槅馃檶! Your work is very much appreciated 鈽!

Just for anyone's curiosity on possible game release dates:

Originally, the game had been planned to be finished by Q4 of 2022. But that was largely in part due to the smaller (original) amount of ROs. After the stretch goals and the many others that were added, it's become apparent to all of us fans out there and the Dev馃槅馃檶 of this game, that they will actually need more time to create/finish the game, especially due to waiting on art CGs because they have to be worked on and tend to take the longest. Artists aren't vending machines, ya know?

Well, anyways, with that in mind --I assume the Dev can work on 3 or maybe 4 max routes a year? At least until we reach that pinnacle of 12 馃コ馃檶. So this game is likely to be out by the end of 2024 or 2025 (no guarantees tho, because IRL obstacles can occur) For those that don't wish to wait so long, I suggest the beta access and purchasing it whenever you find it on sale. The routes will be added as they complete, and you can finish them 1 by one. Meyaoi's games also tend to take a while to play through for me, so I personally NEEDED the beta access 馃ぃ.


Side note for anyone interested: 

*The Baradise Escape game was actually a game put into motion BEFORE the making of BR. Due to some things, it had to get temporarily shelved. But the artists team is revving to go again on it, and the Dev is ready to work with them and continue this wonderful game馃檶馃コ!*

Personal note: "It's possible, that even if the Dev only worked on just BR or BE that neither would finish sooner. I think it's because, they still have to wait for things when you work with a team on games such as: BGs, regular CGs, NSFW CGs, sprites, animations, along with coding, etc. This means there will be down times where the Dev honestly can't do anything but wait. So I think it's good that during those times, they can likely hop from working on one game to the next馃槅馃檶"

So just wanted to say: "Thanks for your continuously hard work! And keep on pushing forward 馃挭馃檶馃槅"

Omg! So exciting I can't wait馃槅馃檶

Amazing 馃憦 just take my money馃槴! I can't even wait sfsfsfsf馃槶馃槶馃槶. But yaaay, this looks awesome!! Will there be ways to purchase it like you have set up for your other games on itchio? And maybe a tier that includes a beta tier馃憖馃グ馃檶?

Hi, can't wait to play this game. I know you guys are busy on your other games and this one too. But if possible, could we get an update on where this one is at 馃憖, and maybe a guesstimate of when you guys think this game might be out? Be it next year or the year after. Anyways, just thought I'd pop in and ask, since it can't hurt. Thanks for your guys hard work on your games, loving them alot馃檶

Yes! I agree with this so much! Thank you Ertal Games, for still communicating well, I really appreciate the hard work going into this! Can't wait to play this馃槅馃檶!

Hi, How are you guys doing? Everything alright?? Hopefully, there's less complications with the game coming out soon馃ズ. I wouldn't mind getting another update if possible on what's going on so far馃グ? Or how much longer we might be delayed until, whether that be another month or so. That's fine, but some communication again to know, would be great馃檶! Have a great day, and sorry to bother馃槚!

Oh! Also something a character mentioned to me I'm glad I didn't miss, was that having Full Charm would allow you to bond with monsters and also have more "love" skills to defeating them. So the by using your charm all the way to max, you'll also prob be helping yourself like that too besides getting those potions and strengthening (ATK/DEF/HP/MP).  So maybe working towards a goal of getting enhancement potions plus FULL CHARM will greatly help馃檶馃槅!

Grill...? I don't remember getting such a request. He just told me to go fishing for salmon from the Slime Forest, and then bring 5 back to him on his second request.  He wants fish to grill for himself, if I recall. So just carry at least 5 Salmon fish in your inventory to him and he should automatically consider the request done馃檶! The third request after should be the Blu jello (or whatever that dropping from slime monsters is called *I forget馃槄馃檲*. That request is basically to collect 15 of those droppings from slime monsters you defeat. Hope this helps 馃槉!

Wow thanks so much! Really appreciate it!

You might have missed my "go-to" explanation down below, or maybe pictures are just always best! Here's some pictures just in case it helps more. As you can see, the last image down below has Ban now outside at night, after clicking on the town map. From there you can pick where you want to go. Hope this helps!



Ah, ok. It might be because I was loading older save files or something. As for the itchio app launcher...馃拃 it prob just hates me馃ぃ. I'll try it again later and see if I can get it to update. Otherwise, I'll just un-install and re-install. I haven't gotten too far in game anyways馃構

Oh! You said "go-to" lmao, see how tired I am. This is what hrs upon hrs of school work does to me馃ぃ. Anyways, I actually didn't realize this either until today. But at the end of the day when your taken home. 

In Ban's room, in the bottom left hand corner where the map screen is. Click on that and it actually takes you to the night life aspect of Banana Ranch. The only places you can visit at night tho, is the bar, the forest, the ranch, and the love hotel I believe. If you still can't figure it out, then feel free to send me another reply and I'll screen shot where it is in-game tomorrow after my classes let out馃檶

Oh man, sorry I missed your reply. I had to go back to diving into a school term paper and a group project for my professors馃拃, and when I dive into hw I sometimes forget my surroundings 馃槶.

To answer your question, I actually haven't gotten that far myself馃ゲ. But last I went to the love hotel, I was given a quest after talking to that police duo. So I'm assuming the love hotel will open up after I complete the quest for getting the owner of the hotel to help out the police in staking out their suspect. 

For me, I couldn't outright do the quest because it said my Knowledge Stat was lacking. So I have to go back and build that first (via reading books in the library or watching the news when your at home). So I'm assuming once I have a full knowledge meter, and go back to complete the quest, I will unlock the love hotel options馃憖 馃檶!

Thanks so much! Ya, having an update sections with a post that would allow us to comment and make thread comments for answering in game questions would be awesome馃檶

No prob! Glad I could help馃槅馃檶

@Meyaoi, when you see this, and you get the chance to reply. Would you possibly be willing to make a devlog update called "Game Guide thread"? and that way if any of us have questions about the game or even want to post tidbits about it to help guide each other.

I figure, having a specific place for asking game questions, would make it easier to find later on and also keep us from making super long thread comments on your main page. It'd be really awesome to have!! Especially, for those of us currently playing the game! Of course when you have the time or have taken a rest. I understand if not, but just thought it can't hurt to ask. Anyways, have a great day and ttyl!

Wuh oh, you must have purchased two different versions there on accident. The 45$ version should give you access to the beta and it should download (granted that there's nothing going on with itchio's platform or launcher). 

But only if you payed for the 45$. If you have purchased both tiers: the base 29.99 and the 45$. I recommend contacting support via itchio's email service: support@itch.io ( I believe that's the email I used when I upgraded to a different tier. It took them about 2 business days to reply). 

They should refund you one of the tiers. If you still want the beta access just make sure you ask them for a refund for the 29.99 tier and tell them you made a purchase for the 45$ beta tier. 

Sorry if it's not downloading the 45$ tier you purchased. Something might be wrong with their platform or itchio's launcher app today. Because I tried to update to the most recent beta version and it's still not working. But, I already have the game installed, and have been playing the beta. So for me, I don't know if it's the app or the file, etc. But you should def try and contact support so that you get a refund for that 29$! Hopefully Meyaoi can help you if the issue persists.

Hi! and Sorry to bother you, but for some reason Itchio isn't updating to the newest version for me I think? It still says 1.2 and when I click "manage" and then "check for recent updates" it says "found new version" but then doesn't proceed to update. Here's a couple pictures if it helps. And I am using Itchio launcher app. So maybe it's something wrong with the app? And thanks so much for your hard work!

Also side not: I know you fixed the shop error from the first beta release. But in the second, (1.2 version) for some reason the shop is empty for me. Is that supposed to be the case until later in the game? Although, that's coming from version 1.2 so maybe it doesn't happen in 1.3? Anyways thank you so much! Really appreciate all of your hard work!


-I didn't figure this out either until this morning, lol. You're not alone! It's just hiding in plain site.There's an upgrade button under the letter. So under F it will say 'upgrade' and click on that. It will tell you how much money you need, and people hired in order to upgrade. 

-Likewise, when you click on ranch employees it will also have a button that says "level up" and accordingly will tell you what you need to upgrade your ranch employees with. 

-Another thing that I didn't realize until today was the upgrade for what the employees make (milk, eggs, wool, etc). 

-As well as the upgrade button for the Milk, Egg, and Wool factories, and in the corner it gives you two different upgrade options. 

-When you click on let's just say for example, the Milk Factory. Then in the corner of the screen you will find the details needed for both the produce & factory upgrades. 

-I'll also add the images pertaining to this down below if they help! And that way anyone else that has the same question can also check here for it. Sorry if the images are super large, I wasn't able to make them smaller.

Upgrading Ranch





Hi Hi! I think you guys might have forgot something here... And just in case I've quadruple checked my itch-io app launcher and on the website. But no where on there for me does it say 'DEMO' anywhere. Perhaps the word 'free' can be interpreted as such. But not always. Perspective wise, I can see what you mean. But, unless it's stated as a Demo, I don't really expect one. Do I want one? Sure, sometimes having demo's can be really nice. But, that's entirely up to the Dev if they want to add that or not, don't you think? Is it a decision that will draw more people in? Probably. But that's a choice. Some games come with them, some don't. To each their own.  

If there's anything misleading, you can most definitely point out the misleading label system. The fact that the game is listed as 'FREE' when it's not. But, I think we should also be understanding (we don't have to, but we can) that not all game platforms have a work around for certain aspects when it come's to selling your games a specific way, putting them in EA mode, or even for subscription based games. So I think, all that really needs to be done is, perhaps re-designing this page a bit more to make that "NOT FREE' aspect more apparent despite the label saying it's 'FREE' if it has to appear this way on itch-io, and if possible --create a another page where people can connect their games via Patreon. Just to avoid confusion. But, that's just what I think. Everyone has different perspectives, and I can 100% see where you're coming from.

Just joined to try out the mechanics

& see what the fuss was about (Sorry for the long review):

-SO, YOU DO in fact need to be member of Patreon at the lowest tier level to play this game (4$) a month. That tier gives you access to most recent updates for both Uncommon Breed, and Lust. For some people that's less than a coffee every month and well affordable. For others not so much. But to each their own! I can see a lot of work has been put into this! Amazing job! Loving the art style and animations for sprites/characters!!

-There is NO FREE trial. This game's page does come off as free. And some people might not know about Patreon and be upset by that. So perhaps, re design this page and disclaimer if possible. Side NOTE: Your Patreon disclaimer says you need to be a Patreon. But then down below, it says to check Patreon for the most recent builds. This can be interpreted as there being an available build on here different from that on Patreon and one you can play without needing Patreon connections. So that might confuse some people.

-You WILL need a STABLE internet connection to run this game. This game is what I call "not workable" on non-gaming laptops./pcs, old ones, or ones with little to no graphics, as well as households with crappy routers or wifi set ups (my house) that already give you trouble streaming your anime *cries.* Don't consider wasting your money right now, if that's the case. Or you know what? Waste it however you please, it's your money!  

-For me, it runs well enough for me to play. Albeit, it is pretty slow on loading times, in game text, and such. But not really an issue for me. Also, for those worried about this game being a forever "pay per month" game. Well, the tiers on Patreon say that those members will receive both Uncommon Breed and Lust upon final completion. So at some point, I'm assuming both games will be available for purchase on here or on other platforms? But I could be wrong so don't quote me on that! I'll re-edit this later when I play more or come across new vital information.

I got an update for that 4 days ago, you should be able to go in and download it now.

Oh no! That stinks, but is also expected 馃ゲ. Well, hopefully things come around soon! And thanks for the reply! Can't wait to play your game!

Hi hi! Any news on how Itchio and Steam are with the approval? Hopefully their not giving you guys any trouble馃槚. I know Steam can be...tricky馃ゲ. But hopefully Itchio approves you guys soon! Either way, 100% buying this awesome VN!! 馃檶  So, now it just comes down to the wait馃ぃ

Yay! I can't wait! Been waiting for this game! Thnx so much for your hard work!
