This is exactly how we felt when we realised XD

It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed the game!
Regarding the BGs, we do wish we could have been more consistent with them but at that time we were relying on what we could find freely available or as an asset pack which led to many differing BG sources. We would like to update them at some point, but we are prioritising making new games so there's no guarantee if or when that will be possible.

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the game!
As for Mira's name we just thought it Cosgrove was pretty and had the requisite C to make Mira's initals MC (We've been theme naming the initial Main Characters as a reference to them being the MC lol).
We didn't make the connection to the actress ^^'. By the time it was brought to our attention it was already too late to change it.
So yeah, there's no inside joke. She just happens to have the same name.
Thank you for the kind words!
We do have plans for more games after Christmas Otome! We've got another game in this series to do, but before that we want to take some time and work on a darker sequel for Flying Lessons where they all grown up for a change of pace.
We're super slow so it'll probably be a long time before we have anything to show for them though.
Ah, okay. The missing Kiron CG (6th) is from his "Fallen Hero" end while the counterpart to the Daire CG (Kiron's 7th CG) is from the "Things Left Unsaid" end.
The exact requirements for those ends can be find at this point of the guide: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CjKGkKfTB3aXmScImrjptJ_K2RbyADv-1aB_B5uN...
Sorry, I'm not sure I understood the query. Did a CG unlock at the wrong time?
If possible, please provide additional information such as a screenshot and what steps were taken to encounter the issue? Also if you were using the patch or not?
Hi! The green icons are additional emotes for Maia. They're more PC based to reflect the way she thinks. Like the loading one is because she's trying to process some info, error is because something doesn't make sense to her/crashes her brain, overheat is because it's embarrassing, that sorta thing.
This looks like it's being prevented from saving which could be an antivirus or permissions issue.
First try to launch the game directly as admin and not from the itch.io app and see if that helps.
If not, please see if any of the below are helpful to try and troubleshoot:
We'd like more information on this if possible, preferably in the lemmasoft thread https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=48083.
As Valentines Otome was made with RenPy, there may also be others there who can assist to find out what might have changed to cause the save system to stop working.
It's highly recommended to play Halloween first as this game takes place after the events of that game and characters from there make appearances in this one.
As a result, there are some scenes and references that may not be as much fun/make as much sense if you were to play this one first.
The only Kaiser coat requirement is the first one. There is no second coat that you can make.
Waking Nightmare branches from the Best End so it has the exact same requirements but for the last choice choose to find Daire alone instead of confronting Kaiser.
Hope that helps!
The choice of Emma's partner is because of a change to her sprite that only occurs in the version where she ended up with The Count. The previous girls' partners are not as relevant in this game because Maia isn't as close to them.
Buying Daire at the auction requires having a lot of money towards the start. The easiest way to do this is to focus on design and always choose to wear your own designs. The inspired trait can help here.
This sounds like the same problem as here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=48083#p477423
If so, can you try press Shift+G and toggle some options there? You'll need to restart the game each time to see if it helps. Please try all of the options until you find the one that works the best as some may cause lag.
While I don't have a Mac myself to test, the following advice was provided by another user in an earlier comment:
"Right click on the renpy app, then say show contents or something like that. Then go into the folder that says Contents, then MacOS then double click on the black version of it. The terminal should pop open and you should be able to run the game."
The small number of lines imply it's small variations that are missing. Off the top of my head it could be :
- Meeting the green-haired kid (Lee) in Zane's route.
- Meeting the white-haired kid (Kai) in Daire's route.
- Choosing not to spend time with your husband in each of the getaway combinations.
- A variation in the auction aftermath in Daire's path based on whether his affection is high/low
- An extra line or two in both versions of the play during Kiron's route if you have seen the dress rehearsal
Garret and Liam have scenes unlocked by items too but none of the items tied to Garret's are available to buy in the demo. As for Liam, the available snacks unlock scenes for him but thanks to his job they can only be seen on weekends.
All 3 guy's have additional scenes tied to items that are not available in the demo.
