Wahhh, this game hits all of my weak points! I love stories about strangers being forced to live and work together due to dire circumstances, enemies becoming partners, and like, the entire concept of โ€œscary, but really hot,โ€ and this does all of them so well!

I will admit freely that even before I started the game I was super excited to meet Issa just based on her fantastic design and the fact she was clearly very dangerous, ahahah. But then within the first few text boxes I ended up hooked on the entire game world (the great art and music helped too, of course)! That intro was both very efficient and very natural world-building… I was really impressed!

I was even more impressed with how well the dark atmosphere of the setting was balanced out with funny and heart-warming moments. I never felt like the game became too sad to read or too light-hearted for me to take it seriously: Mell and Issaโ€™s interactions always felt both genuine and delightful to read.

[Spoilers]

One thing I especially appreciated was that Mell and Issa had genuine reasons to dislike each other, misunderstand each other, and step on each otherโ€™s toes โ€“ so often I see characters in VNs who are jerks without good explanation so that the player can redeem them through the Power Of Love. The fact that Mell and Issa both had good reasons to distrust each other made it all the more wonderful when they managed to get past that <3

Oh, and I loved the explanation of Issaโ€™s stuffed bears that was in the second bad ending! Iโ€™m always so happy when there are little story details in bad ends. It feels like an extra treat for completionists like me!

Thanks for making such a lovely game c:

I actually played this game back when it first came out, but because I enjoyed it so much, I thought I ought to leave a review before playing the new Sofdelux game! Even after half a year, I still remember how charmed I was by the graphics, the music, the wonderful characters (Bea was my favourite, but they're all great)... But more than anything I remember how impressed I was with the game's attention to detail!

23 endings is impressive enough on its own, but I was even more excited when I realized how much detail was put in to little choices that didn't count for endings. I got to try so many different things, like getting different medals at the Passion Festival, and going to the festival at different stages in my friendship with different characters, and every time I discovered a new line of dialogue it made me even happier with the game than I'd been before. 

Also, congratulations on finishing the new game! Sofdelux is a great team and I'm excited to see what you've come up with this time. I'll be sure to leave a review when I finish that one too c:

(WAIT I just remembered there are older women in Mermaid Splash! Passion Festival. Still, having an entire game dedicated to older women is a real treat!)

This was a very charming game! And I'm pretty sure it's the first one in which I've been able to date women older than like... possibly 30, but even that might be a high estimate, so that was wonderful as well.  What a delightful way to spend a few hours.
