There is currently only one ending, but that may change in future updates.

To play again, you just need to quit and relaunch :)

Thanks for playing!

Thank you so much for this review and your feedback! It is very appreciated.

Due to the rules of the game jam, we weren't allowed to have any image changes aside from expressions, the scene itself could not change during gameplay or we'd be breaking the rules.

Reflection is part of the "only one of any asset jam" so we had to think outside the box!

We will definitely be updating and adding more cinematic transitions and creating a unique entity in the future :)

Again, thank you so much, watching your video was very fun.

Hi there! I’m so glad you enjoyed Tidal Blossoms 😊

Unfortunately, it’s not the style of game that I intend to make anymore.

If you’re interested, Starlight Shores is a finished game that takes place in the same town/cottage! My other project Graveyard Girls features a more serious tone, but it’s in the same universe and 100% free.

Hello again,

I believe the issue has to do with the .ico (desktop icon) files on Windows 7.

If you go into the game directory and remove the .ico files, the game may generate an error report but should otherwise run smoothly.

Apologies for the delayed response, I hope this helps

These are the kinds of comments that make me so happy for our entire spooktober team. Thank you for leaving such a detailed write-up on your experience, and thank you for giving Graveyard Girls a chance!

Apologies for not responding to this lovely comment sooner, thank you for leaving such a personal message. 

When I made this game, I hoped the story would connect with those who had experienced such intense loss in their lives. Sending you positive thoughts.

Thank you, I really appreciate it.

Unfortunately, I never received any tax forms for my 2021 payouts. 

I tried reaching out to support on March 2nd and still haven't heard back. I tried checking my spam and junk folders, but I didn't find anything.

I am a foreign seller, so I'm not sure if that changes the dates of when tax info should be sent out. 

Does anyone know if I should've received the forms by now?

Hi! I'm sorry to hear that you've encounter this problem. Do you have Discord? It would be easier for me to help resolve the issue through there.

Here's a link to the Starlight Shores community Discord:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, it is truly appreciated. You are correct, this game is made from personal experiences with grief.

On the technical issue, I'm having trouble figuring out what the background noise you've mentioned is. I had a listen and couldn't locate anything amiss. Could you describe it or reach out on our Discord? You'll find it listed on our Linktree here :)

Thanks! I will look into this as soon as possible :)

Hi there!

The answer to this question isn't a perfect one, and I apologize if it is unclear.

Will, the main character, harbours romantic feelings for his friend Theo and can be romantic with other characters as well.

However, there is a very special and what I would consider "canon" route which leaves you in a platonic place with your previous love interests.

It is important that I warn you that this story is open about romantic and sexual relationships and depicts what it's like the be a young adult who is exploring the world of interpersonal relationships for the first time.

There is a long drinking game where characters speak about their relationships, sexualities, insecurities, and curiosities with their friends.

In the end, it is possible to finish things in a platonic way during several routes, but the themes that precede those endings could very well be uncomfy for aro/ace individuals.

The demo is a great example of what I mean about the discussion of sexual and romantic themes.

I'd love to send you a guide on how to achieve platonic endings privately if you do end up playing to prevent a negative experience!

We have a discord that is linked on this page, you can reach me there for a guide :)

There are also some in-depth reviews about the variety of endings, but they have a lot of story details, so I can send them if you don't mind spoilers.

Even if you don't end up finding Starlight Shores is right for you, I encourage you to keep exploring the indie visual novel community. 

I'm certain there's a game you'll enjoy :)

I hope this helps!

Are you referring to your experience playing the demo, or do you own the full game? 

I ask because this issue was addressed in the most recent update to the full game! :)

Thank you so much for this wonderful comment, it's really encouraging. Honestly, I put a lot of thought into removing the typical bad-ending trope because of how specific and emotional this content was. I'm overjoyed that you noticed and also liked the change in direction! You're absolutely correct, there's no "proper" way to grieve and every path is different. That's why I didn't want to punish players for having boundaries, it wouldn't be fair and sends a bad message.

These graphics were super nostalgic, I love the 90's setting :) The horror elements definitely made me jumpy, but I did struggle to figure out how to use the planchette in my first playthrough.

The artwork in this project is beautiful! The setting/atmosphere gave me Dragon's Dogma vibes, which is super cool. Writing and music were both 10/10 :) Also particularly enjoyed the voice acting of Anari, really fit her character.

Wow, did not expect to feel so wrapped up in the conversations with the demon. My heart broke a little during the ending, fantastic writing. Loved every second of the story, the setting felt so eerie yet calming.

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourites, so this was just thrilling to play! Love the UI, story, and surprising amount of gore. Great job! :)

I love how creative your approach was with this game, the wordless concept is such a big leap in a narrative-medium and it truly pays off!

Thank you for taking the time to play Graveyard Girls and for leaving such a thorough and touching comment.

Our entire team poured their hearts into this project and this kind of feedback makes every moment of struggle worth it.

Thank YOU for taking the time to leave such a touching comment. This game is dedicated not just to Sam's dad, but to the memory of all dad's gone too soon <3 sending a big hug your way.

Thank you for letting me know! I'm a huge fan of your work ❤

Hi there! 

Unfortunately, Itch owners won’t be getting Steam keys. 

Everything available in the Steam version is also included on Itch, so no one will be missing out if they own it on a single platform.  We do not have Steam achievements integrated, it's the exact same user experience.

I hope this clears things up :)

Thank you for letting me know!!! I'm thrilled that you've decided to use it for your demo/game and looking forward to playing it :) Wishing you the best of luck with your launch.

Hello! 

I can provide a guide :) If you have Discord, please join our official server and comment in the Starlight Shores channel. 

Here's a link: https://discord.com/invite/6X2DECj

Thank you so much, this comment is so appreciated :) Honestly, these kinds of messages are what motivates our team to develop games! We hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Hi there! If either of you would like a guide to help find the endings you're looking for, feel free to reach out on Discord :) There is a link on the project page.

Four seasons of North American Parks, Rivers, and Beaches!



This BG pack contains 20 unique oil painting style scenes from various seasons. 

Original photos taken by myself. However, they've been softened and slightly recolored in an editor. I wanted to give back to the game assets community :)

All files are in PNG format. 
They can be easily resized to 1920x1080, 1280x720, etc. while maintaining the original aspect ratio.

Starlight Shores Launched at 12:00pm EST today!

Page Link- https://tidalblossoms.itch.io/starlight-shores

The Story:

After your childhood friend Theo wins a weekend getaway to the town of Seaside, you prepare to spend your birthday in paradise. It's been months since you last saw Theo, and she's incredibly excited to spend the weekend together. 

She invites her roommate Lena to join the group, and Theo extends an invitation to your friend Alec. After parting ways to attend different colleges, it's just the get-together that you need to reconnect. 

Everything seems to be coming together perfectly... until Alec insists on driving by himself. You arrive at the cottage before him, certain that he's ditched the group. A short while later, he calls to announce that he's bringing along an uninvited guest. 

Although Erika may be from the same small-town as most of the group, that's about the only thing you share in common... 

Will you enjoy your night with Theo and wish on a star?

Thank you for leaving us a review, it's very appreciated! Our team worked hard to create an island-aesthetic and it's nice to see that our artists work is noticed :) If you enjoyed Tidal Blossoms, we highly recommend you check out Starlight Shores. It's our secondary project and it's launching this fall!

Hi there, thank you for dropping by and leaving this comment :) I really appreciate you taking the time to leave this kind of encouragement! 

Right now, Tidal Blossoms is on pause because I'm making a short prequel called Starlight Shores (also available on itch.io) that is launching this fall. If you enjoyed Tidal Blossoms, you might also like Starlight Shores. It's lighter and shorter story-wise, but takes place in the same universe.

Tidal Blossoms will be revisited in time, and we will be overhauling the story and artwork in a subtle way. All of our artists will stay on, but they've improved their skills over the past year and we'd like the assets to reflect that. 

To keep up with our latest news regarding both projects, you can follow us on Twitter (@TidalBlossoms)! We post frequent updates on that account.

Again, thank you for this comment. It brightened my day!

This made me laugh :P Maybe I should add that as an... alternate hobby? Haha.

The fate of the hot dog will be revealed when our full version launches! :) 

Super cute character design! :)

Hi, 

Thank you for playing Starlight Shores :) 

You have my full permission to translate this game demo. Please let me know when it's translated so I can help people find the Russian version!
