The new epilogue gave me all kinds of squishy feelings. Happy to have purchased.

These games mean a lot to me personally and I'm so glad they exist. I had to claim a community copy since I don't have the money rn but I've recommended this game before and have already told a bunch of friends that this collection is out now :D.
I plan to pay for the game asap, I know I don't need to, but I really wanna give back for the great personal meaning these games have for me
i had to claim a community copy bc things have been hard atm and i feel a little guilty so i just wanted to apologise and promise that someday when i'm able to i will make it up to you !!!
i also just wanted to say, thank you so much for this trilogy :) i am a trans person who has had struggles similar to all three of your main characters and it brings me such joy to play through such a warm and loving game in which queer people belong with each other. oh i won't ramble too much but i just want you to know that these games mean a lot to me and a little more queer representation in the world has made me so happy
hey, please don't feel guilty! the community copies are there for the community & you are a part of it (: i appreciate the comment though & i'd love it if you'd recommend the game to friends you think might enjoy it.
npckc, I want to thank you for making such beautiful games. I loved these when I played the jam versions, and I replayed them all just now to relive the wonderful stories.
I'm a trans woman, so One Night, Hot Springs hits closest to home for me. I've known I was a woman for a little over six years now, and it's easy to forget how far I've come and how lucky I've been. I live in the US and because of that I was even able to change my legal name and gender and get married--something not everyone, including Haru, has access to. I think there's a great value in her story both to cis people and trans people alike, because everyone has unique experiences and struggles in life and it's always good to expand your perspectives a bit. Haru's struggles may be different than mine, but what's important is that we all remember to do our best to understand and look out for each other. I think these games do an amazing job at expressing that message.
Okay I'm gonna shut up before I make myself cry haha. Thank you again for making these games!!!!! <3
thank you for this kind comment! also congrats on the legal name/gender change & marriage ♥
hey! i just want to say whatever you decide, you are you & you are awesome. i hope your day with your sister goes well!
I loved this game! It was so good. BUT! BUT! BUT!!!!
I played all three games, found all the endings in all of them, read through the epilogue, and there are still two unlocked photos in the gallery! WHAT?!
Can anyone help me figure out what scenes I missed? Both gallery images are on the second page -- in the top right and the bottom middle.
Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
spoilers below, don't read if you don't want to see them!
hint: try selecting a different spa activity idea while shopping (:
THANK YOU! :D I should have been able to figure that out from the other images nearby, now that I think about it. I'm glad I got them all though -- those were super cute! And thank you for a wonderful game.
Yes, just yes.
Time to wait patiently till I can afford this. I absolutely require that epilogue. This is easily my favorite collection of visual novels and I look forward to whatever else you put out there!
I love this trilogy. I’m not gonna ramble a lot about it, since it would be too personal, but I wanted to share the knowledge that this game touched me deeply. I plan to buy this as a way of supporting you, in the near future. I hope you’re doing well. If someday, you continue working into these characters, I’ll be super happy to see them again. I wish you the best of luck with your games! <3
thank you, i am doing ok! i hope you are having a good day.
Wow! I haven't played these games for so long and now just being able to play them all is so amazing! It really gives me an understanding about trans people and how complicated it can be for them. As a person who doesn't understand this topic all that much, this really cleared things up a lot. Thank you! 💙 (also the button sounds were really satisfyingly haha)
thank you for playing! (also i am so happy you liked the button sounds because i spent a lot of time deciding on them!)
I can't wait to buy this as soon as I'm able to! These games, particularly the first, have meant to much to me as a trans teen learning to present as myself without shame. It's also such a valuable resource for allies who may not really get what it's like to live as a trans person. I love these games so much!
aw this series was awesome, but now it’s even awesomer! thank you kc for creating the world of manami, haru and erika <3
i played the second game around a few months after i realized i was trans, and i can’t help but feel i can relate to erika more than haru even though i am trans myself…i don’t have to deal with so much bs like haru, simply because i do not have the courage to present myself as trans in society…sometimes i feel like i don’t understand how it feels to be trans in the society either, you know? i keep my facade to society so i don’t have to deal with what haru has to go through every single day…
wow that turned into a ramble real fast, i’m really sorry v.v
i guess i’ll end this on a more positive note, so thank you again kc for all of this <3
hey, please don't ever feel like you have to apologise for who you are! i'm sorry you're in a situation where you feel like you can't present yourself as trans, but i hope that you'll find a space for yourself where you are comfortable doing that. i also want to say that even though you say you don't understand how it feels to be trans in society, you are trans, and that makes your experience a trans experience. you have your own troubles that you're facing and just because they're different from the ones in this game doesn't make yours any less valid.
thank you very much for sharing your experience with me.
Can you please release it on steam? I cant buy it from here but I love this series so much I'm willing to pay any price for it
sorry, i don't have any plans to release on steam at this time.
Just want to say that I'd love to have this in my Steam library too! Will be an instant purchase from me if you ever release it there!
I highly recommend looking up ways to play non-steam games on steam. For DRM-free games, such as this, it is simple and fun to customize what art I choose for the launcher. It only gets complicated for games that need another launcher.
I played the first game a while back when I was struggling with some identity issues and I had such a cathartic experience. Seeing Haru talk about herself made me realize a lot of stuff about me. You can imagine how excited I was when I saw that there was a sequel to it. I played it, loved it and cried at the end. Such a lovely game! When I finally went to play the third game and then I saw that you made this collection, I knew I had to get it! I can't wait to see the ending to this series! Thank you for making such amazing games!!! Sorry for rambling I just really love these games! <3
don't apologise - i appreciate the rambling! thank you for this kind comment. i hope you enjoy the ending 💜
I have not played the games, but I am very excited about it. As a confused teenager, I am grateful for this kind of stories and games! Keep it up! <3
I played the first game on steam about a week ago, and I'm so exited to try the other ones!
i haven't played this collection yet, but i have played each game individually. these are some of the most impactful and lovely queer experiences in games, and i cannot recommend them enough to everyone, queer or not.
everyone's outfits in the epilogue... <3
what a perfect series!!! i enjoyed it even more than the first time i played all of them. it was so nice reading them all in one go. GREAT WORK AS ALWAYS!!!! <333
thanks! i was hoping people would notice the outfits 👀 (i guess they aren't very subtle!)
These games are three of my favourite interactive fiction experiences and having them in a bundle like this with a bonus epilogue is fantastic! Thanks for making them and best of luck with all current/future projects~!
So glad to be able to play this trilogy! I love it so much. And that epilogue <3
Recently I had played all of the 3 individual games, when I saw this my mind just WOW. I came a bit late and don't get the chance to claim a community copy of the game BUT I will without a doubt buy this as soon as I get the chance. I absolutely adore this series overall its a beautiful set of games. These are without a doubt my favorite games that I've ever played without a doubt! I'm excited to eventually get the chance to play A Year of Springs! Tysm for making these
Thank you for making A Year of Springs, I played through it all last night and the happiness and serenity it left me feeling was so refreshing. It really did give me hope for a future where things are better. I'll be sure to check out your other games!
thank you! i'm really glad that's how you felt coming out of it. i hope you enjoy the other games too.
I just discovered this and I love it so much! Just wondering what the conditions are for unlocking the epilogue? A bunch of the options in spring leaves no flowers are crossed out, it's stopping me from getting some endings and I was wondering if that's related?
(slightly spoilery, don't read if you don't want to know!) have you tried selecting the options that are crossed out?
these games make me so happy in a way I'm struggling to describe... I've never related to a character harder than I have Haru........ plus the art style is the most adorable thing I've ever seen.......................
I adore these three games so much, they are so sweet and heartfelt and filled with kindness in an unkind world. Thank you for making them - I can't wait to see the epilogue!
I loved all three games, and I love your philosophy of "free" games.
It was a no brainer for me to buy this game and support you.
You're amazing :D
I love the Springs games so much, I will definitely be picking up a copy of this when I have the money! Thank you so much for making these wonderful games <3
