ever since last autumn, everything that lilac touches loses its colour. one night, she wakes up and hears a knock on her door...


LILAC & HER LIGHT is the story of a girl who has stayed inside her house for a year, and the witch who knocks on her door to bring her back outside. 

in this game: stargazing, potion making (?), and cat chasing (??)! 

play time is ~30 minutes.

for $3 or more, you can support me in my game-making adventures & also receive a digital art collection!

The Linux version does not seem to work for me on Mint 20.2 Cinnamon 64-bit.  After unzipping, and adjusting the permission to allow "Game.desktop" to run as a program, I tried running "./Game.desktop" in the terminal and got the following error:

./Game.desktop: line 1: [Desktop: command not found

./Game.desktop: line 3: -c: command not found

Does anyone know how to work around this issue?  All other NPCKC games I've tried work.  I think I'm just going to play the Android version on my phone.

EDIT: I have now completed the game on my phone and I loved the ending!

hi, sorry for the issue! would you please try launching the game via nw instead of game.desktop?

Ahhhhh so fricking cute! The music, their walking animations, and I especially love when Lilac's sprite is confused or shocked. It's adorable. I didn't know if Chime's name was pronounced as just 'Chime' or 'She-may' but I went with the second option since it was cuter lol. 10/10. Pity it was short tho. 

I was really excited to play this, but it won't open... 

have you tried extracting all files, then running the application?

also u might wanna make sure u downloaded the proper version for your platform :>


yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yse yes yes this was so cute i love it yes

We just discussed your game on our podcast! Come check us out!

Episode 39: Female Protagonists



one of my absolute favorite games now! so so cute, fun, and relaxing. <3 


It was one fun and brief experience playing this game! I wrote a review of it on my blog, you can check it out here https://fadinglightpro.blogspot.com/2021/04/re-coloring-grey-spaces-lilac-and-he...

looks super cute! time to,,,, ask if i can play it bc my parents dont let me play anything lol


As a HSP with depression an anxiety, I loved this game. It's so sweet. It made me feel calm and warmed my heart. Thank you for making it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the game, the cute art style and the awesome soundtrack. Had fun with the game :)

I really enjoyed the story and the characters are so sweet! 🥰

I wasn't able to open it on mac :

Great Game!

What the hell? I  try to play the game and this happens:

this is an issue with your system (mac) and not the game. you have the game in a folderpath that does not allow writing (saving) so please try moving it to a different folder before playing.

Ah... ok

A very sweet game. The music was so soothing! Plus some truly cute art, and a cat chase! I'm soft uwu

"beautiful, i love it."


Would be nice if Mac developers would specify if their games are 32 bit or 64 bit. Just bought this game and didn't find out until after I paid for it that I can't play it because it's 32 bit. It's hard enough to find games for Mac anyway.

Really cute and simple! I like it!

cried at the end... and i love the lessons in the themes i could see.

a very sweet game i enjoyed as a halloween treat. thank you for sharing. <3


This was adorable, thank you <3

So cute <3

Glad everything worked out, the ending was so sweet~

I'm not crying, you're crying.... T_T what a beautiful game

So cute and calming, thank you for this

Very cute game!

hi! i'm trying to play this game on my mac but i keep on getting an error on the language selection page. i'm not sure if this is something from my computer or an in-game thing, so could you please help? thank you


this is usually an error that occurs because of where you have saved the app - the location seems to be read-only, so the game can't save. please try moving it to another location or checking the permissions of the specified file. 


this is very cute and heart-warming! There is no sad scene in this game but i feel sad for no reason after finishing the game ;-;


very sweet ending :)


Is lilac and her light offline game?


mistook this for "her tears were my light" but im happy i ended up here

Mola, aunque le entiendo poco

hi, the game showed 'unknownError read-only file system..' after i choose the language and just stays there, i use Mac btw. 

please try extracting the game into a writable directory.

I enjoyed playing this game on my phone, it was really nice to play something calm and atmospheric during my lunch break. I especially appreciate the metaphor about the spell being equivalent to mental health, and have felt the same way Lilac has many times. 

it was such a nice game, but  unfortunately, it froze about 20 minutes in so I didn't finish it,, but the BGM is really calming and the game is so beautiful.

hi! if you don't mind, could you let me know the OS you're playing on & how the game froze? 

I use windows, and when she was done making the potion (the vegetables) and put on the clover, the whole game froze and didn't unfreeze, so I had to restart.

sorry for the trouble. i'm going to look into the issue & see if i can recreate it. 

its really no problem! the game was amazing either way !


Would you authorize me to translate your game into portuguese?



hi! while i really appreciate the offer, lilac & her light is made with rpg maker mv, and the engine currently does not support translations too well (the plugin i'm using only allows two languages) 

Hi! Ah, I understand. Thank you very much for your availability to answer me. It's a beautiful job. Congratulations on the project and I wish you success.

Thanks for the attention,


cant put food on table ;/
