Found and tried this out a few weeks ago. Loved the aesthetics & found the concept a very refreshing mix of usually disparate elements!

I must however confess that I gave up on romanceing because I wasn't quite able to figure out what to do. ex: with Arjun I bought clothing and tried chatting with him but only the most basic dialogue options were ever an option (memory hazy on the details). Now that my semester is done I'm committed to finding out how to win his heart!!! Tips/walkthrough please???


It easy! To get somebody love you  have to talk a lot with that person (everyday) and always choose that 1 option that gives positive reactiom. After some time that person will talk with you about more personal topic, start conversation with you and start showing hid/her interest ♥

I'm glad you're enjoying the game :D!

MrMar is 100% right. Maybe I should have been more clear that buying them gifts doesn't really do much, hahaha, it's really just cosmetic, to see the character you like in different clothes!

I got crash when I tried to buy stress ball.

Edit: Why time passes even if I go to any place and don't do anything there?

Edit2: I like this game. I just finished Esther's route. She is cute, shy, slim. interesting person. 

About... artstyle sprites are ok but you could replace BGs with something better... maybe drawn by somebody...

Oh man, I'm so sorry it took me so long to reply to this, I somehow missed the notification! I'm really glad you liked the game, and I'm slowly working on adding more stuff to it, though after Nanoreno, I definitely need to take it slow.

The stressball problem has been noted too. I missed something while coding so it's not available to purchase, hahaha! 

Either way, thank you so much again :D

Played the game for a while, it crashes on sandwich purchase (you forgot to define Sandwich variable at the start) Other than that - haven't played much, but the  story and characters are everything but stereotypical, and that's certainly fresh :)

Thank you for playing and also for catching that! I'm gonna fix it in just a second. If you play any more of the game, I hope you enjoy it. :D
