I need a sequel to this

This was very cute

(1 edit)

Hey, this was a bit broken from the technical standpoint and the first few choices were completely pointless but overall, not a bad story! I very much liked the framework and how you portrayed the protagonist's emotions when confronted with someone from her past. Also, the voice acting was really well-done.

You probably don't care about my opinion, but you could expand this into a really nice commercial VN. As vanilla as the story is, it hits all the right notes for a yuri fluff game. You'd only need to expand it a bit and elaborate on Tomoyo's character and her past with the protagonist...

Anyway, I'm just rambling at this point... Still, nicely done!

hi i found a problem  when running both *.exe & .sh, i managed to save the crash log so you can sort it out for a next update ! 

many thanks,

Mr GaTeZ

Very well written and relatable with great art.  I do wish the ending was just a little bit longer.

Hi, how should I access the game on Mac? I downloaded the pack but did not see any application for MacOS (My Mac is Version 11.0 Big Sur).

I don't have a Mac so I'm not sure. But I think you just need to open the .app file. Maybe you have to allow apps from third-party sources in the security settings.

(2 edits)

I don't think that's the issue I'm having. I have opened my system preference and enabled the app to be opened. The one with .app extension, as you could see from my screen shot, is Application(Intel). I think that is why I cannot open the application.

I redownloaded via Itch.io app. Now it's working. thx!

(1 edit)

good story and very beautiful art , good voice acting ,good music too ,  i like it :) :)

I loved the ending great game keep it up 

Game was awesome can't wait to finish I loved the love interest and the voice acting was incredible too.

hi i have some feedback on your V.N. that keeps crashing out on both Windows and Linux and as over 1 years on LINUX now i had the crash auto logged turned on so i got the full details of the crash and what triggered it.

thanks

Mr GaTeZ.
