Thanks for playing! Happy to hear that you enjoyed it.

Thanks very much for playing our game! We worked hard to make sure each route had different secrets but still felt satisfying, so we're happy to hear that you took your time finding all the endings.

Thanks for playing, and sharing your thoughts! Glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Thank you!

No worries at all, glad to hear you managed to get that ending. Thanks for your lovely comments, and hope you have fun playing through our other games as well!

If you're getting ED2 instead, it's because you're not choosing enough "trust" options -- other than the ones listed, there are still some other choices that build up the player's trust in Brandon, but don't necessarily raise Brandon's friendship.
A few more hints to build trust:
- On September 29, say that you just had to suck it up when he asks if it was difficult adjusting to changing schools.
- On October 6, say that it depends on your parents when he asks whether you'd like to study abroad or not.
- In general, you should respond positively when he wants to meet up.
Some hints to lower friendship:
- On October 11, tell Brandon he should use the new photo he took as his profile picture, and then change your mind and tell him not to.
- On October 15, be blunt when you tell Brandon to change the way he dresses (don't choose the option that starts with "it's not ideal but...")
- Also, if you don't already enough friendliness with Brandon, options that are meant to be jokes might be taken the wrong way, like saying "fuck you", or calling him "desperate for e-creds". If you already have a certain amount of friendliness, though, these options will increase it.

Thanks Shelley lmao

Thanks! ED3 happens when the player character demonstrates more trust in Brandon, but comes off as mean or unfriendly otherwise. So you should follow the tips to achieve ED3/4 (the hints we've shared in the comments below, but I'll copy & paste them here) but aside from these, you shouldn't be too friendly to Brandon.

- On September 23, say that you're sorry to hear about classmates making fun of him.
- On September 29, say that while it's not the same situation, you changed schools recently.
- On October 6, say that you know what he means, instead of just saying "that's rough".
- On October 11, say that you should finally make an account.
- On October 15, say that your friends don't know the real you.
- On October 25, say that it makes sense to have doubt.
- On November 14, say that there's a reason for it, and it's that you got too nervous.

Thanks very much for playing our game and sharing your thoughts! We're really glad you were able to relate to the characters.

The wtf/diu choice doesn't really make a difference -- it's just there since "diu" might be something the player character would say, but players not from Hong Kong might not know what it means, so the "wtf" option is there to make things clearer.

(We're both permanent residents of HK, but unfortunately we're based in New York and California at the moment. It'd definitely be cool to get more involved with the HK game dev community if we were ever back in town, though!)

Thanks so much for playing and leaving a comment!

Thank you for playing our game! Happy to hear that the story resonated with you.

A hint for each ending: ending 1 happens if you act too suspiciously, ending 2 happens if you don't display enough trust in Brandon, ending 3 happens if you display trust in Brandon but aren't friendly enough, and ending 4 happens if you display trust in Brandon and are encouraging and friendly towards him.

(Your English is perfectly fine -- no apology needed!)

Thanks for playing the game and leaving a comment! A hint for getting ending 4 is that it's quite similar to getting ending 3, but you have to act friendlier/kinder towards Brandon -- like joking around with him and generally being supportive/encouraging.

Thanks for playing our game! Glad you liked it.

Thanks for playing our game and for sharing your thoughts! Glad to hear that it resonated with you. If you're unsure exactly which endings you've unlocked, you can check the Extras screen (accessible from the main menu) which has the list of endings numbered and named, so it's easier to find hints in the comments if you're looking to get a specific one.

Thanks for compiling all the songs in the game.
However, you might have to provide a link to each artists' profile in a text document or something with the files -- there are links in the game's "extras" menu if you're having trouble tracking them down!

Thanks for playing our game and sharing your thoughts!

I'd like to avoid giving a full walkthrough, but I can give you one choice per chat that you should definitely make:
- On September 23, say that you're sorry to hear about classmates making fun of him.
- On September 29, say that while it's not the same situation, you changed schools recently.
- On October 6, say that you know what he means, instead of just saying "that's rough".
- On October 11, say that you should finally make an account.
- On October 15, say that your friends don't know the real you.
- On October 25, say that it makes sense to have doubt.
- On November 14, say that there's a reason for it, and it's that you got too nervous.

Thanks for playing our game and for leaving a comment! We're happy to have made a game that people can relate to. Sorry to hear that you're going through a similar situation, but I'm sure you're definitely not alone in that.

Thanks for making a lets play of our game! Happy to hear that you were able to relate to it. I hope you still found the ending you got satisfying even though you got the early bad end!

Haha, sorry to hear that you got the first ending (? I'm guessing??), but that's probably the "worst" ending in the game! The fourth one is the best ending, so it might cheer you up? There were hints posted below as to how to obtain it -- feel free to ask for more hints if you're still stuck after trying those.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the game, thanks for playing!

The first ending is the early "bad" end, which happens if you act too suspiciously. You can avoid getting it by not asking too many questions, especially in the earlier chats, and revealing more information about yourself when you can. Let me know if you're still having trouble and I can provide more hints!

Thanks for playing our game, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed it and were able to relate to the characters!

We were lucky to be able to find kind musicians putting their music up for use under creative commons licenses, so if you liked their music I'd highly suggest paying a visit to their pages to support them as well! (All the songs used in the game are listed in the extras menu, in order of when they are played in the game, with links to the musicians' pages.)

There is a download button on the page, and the game is in a zip file. If you're on PC, you'll need something like WinRAR to open it.

Thanks for playing our game! Yeah, we also get quite excited whenever we see games set in the nearby vicinity, so we decided why not make one ourselves, haha. Then it just seemed natural for Brandon to take a trip to Macau at some point, since there are so many scenic places he'd probably like to photograph there. Glad to hear that you liked the game, and could relate to the character's lifestyles!

Thanks very much for playing our game and sharing your thoughts! We're so glad to hear that it had such an impact on you, as we wondered if people would be able to be invested in the story or the characters if they didn't personally relate to them or the setting!

Yes, the 4th ending is considered the "true" or "best" end -- and congratulations on getting it your first try, since it seems like a lot of people have had trouble getting it, haha.

Thanks for playing our game, it's always interesting seeing what choices players make!

Thanks for your feedback, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed the game! Writing the blog posts and things were one of our favourite things to do, but unfortunately due to time constraints we weren't able to produce as much content for them as we'd like. If we ever revisit this project, the blogs would definitely be something we'd want to expand on.

If you're still stuck on it, the Reunion ending is attainable after last having saw specific endings with Rina & Ace -- a hint for the endings required is that they are one of the more positive ones. As the bartender, you should also be making choices that urge Dawn towards reconciliation and change.

Thanks for playing the game! As for a hint for the reunion ending, it requires specific endings to have been reached in the most recent previous playthrough in Rina and Ace's routes.

Thanks so much for playing our game and sharing your thoughts, we really appreciate it. And of course we don't mind that you recorded a let's play of our game, it was fun to watch you play and see what choices you made!

Thanks very much! Happy to hear that you liked it!

Thanks a lot!

Thank you so much, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed our game! Both of us are Chinese by ethnicity but not by nationality, so some research was done.

There is actually one truth throughout the whole game, but not all of it is revealed in a single route. Zheng isn't a very reliable narrator, and they definitely lie to the other characters on more than one occasion, so it's up to the player to sort of piece it all together.

The intent of this story was to focus on non-romantic relationships, so there is no proper "romance route" in the game -- though you're of course free to interpret the endings however you like!

Thanks so much for playing the game! Happy to hear that you enjoyed it!

Thank you very much for playing our game and sharing your thoughts! I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed it. ★
