-character design

-story about the name inspiration

-the cat

u really know how to touch peoples hearts while making them double over in laughter. 100/10 great game great creator

im really glad you like it! ill be looking forward to the full review! thank you very much for playing and for leaving this nice comment!

The MC is very weird (but in a good way of course ;)) Glad to have found this game! Can tell you've put a lot of work into it

thank you very much, glad you like her and the game!

I really like the dedication invested into representing those with depression. I felt that I could finally relate to a character for once because they showed how to even get to the process of healing. It was really nice. Thanks to the developers for making my day with this game!

PS: I know this sounds petty but can I check if I can romance the love interests because I think I have gotten the Friend Ending only. Not that there is anything wrong with that, the guy was super sweet and relatable! ;D

i'm really glad you liked it! 

oh, you need to get at least 3 romance points to reach the romance ending, the easiest way to do this is to pick at least one good answer and then pick the "NO NO MAYBE NOT" (paraphrased) option for the valentine's day choice.

since, well, MC is a tsundere, so you need to pick the tsundere options to date the guys. you'll know you've got enough if MC either calls him cute (Carol) or calls his smile blinding (Noct)

if this is like a problem, i'll make a walkthrough on the romance options available.

thank you for your comment, and i'm glad you liked the game!

Ah yeah! The Valentine's Day choice offered me the romance ending! Thanks! I'm onto the second love interest now. It's really nice that you can actually play as yourself in the game instead of having to just pander to a love interest's prefences. It's really great! Will totally recommend this to others! 

i'm glad! thank you very much!

the aim for MC was less having a player stand-in and more to have her own character, so it's less "dating someone through her" and more "watching her fall for someone who likes her back"

thank you again, i hope you like him, too!

(by the way, in order to unlock ALL the bonus content, the friendship endings are important too.)

This game is really cute!

thank you, i hope you like the full release!
