At first, I thought Marron's friend was placing the flowers around so that it could be a fun little treasure hunt game for his be-loved.

I feel like this was the perfect design/story/vibe for a gameboy game, nice work!

What a cute little fetch quest game! I loved it! It's a great display of awareness for aromantic ideas. Thanks for your hard work! It would have been interesting to see the innkeeper and them go to the dance together though...


ah! aromantic representation! thats so lovely, thank you for this cute little game!

Very cool

what animal is mugi?

Great Game :)


this game is so wholesome. I love the dynamic between Marron and his/her fried was fun to see and the end was prefect. Not going for a romance route but a best friend route was the best thing because sometimes all you need is a bro to release some stress or worries. Loved it :D

When I say new game it says no save data

I accidentally reset the page and lost my progress


How do we solve the crate puzzle?


Very nice game, i had a delightful time time playing it :)


ahh! This game is adorable! Great character designs.

i spent an ungodly amount of time on the crate puzzle bUT THE ENDING WAS GREAT SO IT WAS WORTH IT :D 


what a wholesome game! thank you for all the aromantic and they/them pronouns representation! it took me a silly amount of time to figure out the crate puzzle, haha <33



as soon as i tap enter to start, i don't know how to tap new game..


You start by pressing the z or alt key on your keyboard :)


aro story :3

also noticed sunny using they/them? :D! 

super cute!! <3

(1 edit)

Really nice game, cute, but is the music intensionally laggy and choppy? 


this was lovely TAT i didn't expect the ending. i'm guessing that mugi is probably ace and/or aro? i wasn't expecting this at all. as an ace/aro, this really made me feel extra soft. i absolutely love your games, and i love this one too. the playthrough was super super cute, and the 8bit is adorable! thank you for this, and thank you.


That was adorable!!


Adorable graphics! I love the characters!


The ending was super-sweet <3

Good game, I loved it, If you wanted I could help translating it to portuguese-brazilian.



loved it!!! i liked how simplistic and retro the graphics were, and i loved the ending!!! great game :^)


For some reason I can´t choose the "new game" option and as a result, the game doesn´t load



You have to press the z or the alt key on your keyboard to choose new game or continue :)


I loved it! so sweet!


lovely game, and with a lovely message <3


This game was so sweet! I love it, it is was a joy to play it. :")

lovely game :)



This is such a cute and sweet game! i love that it focuses on friendship cause i'm always a sucker for platonic relationships!

Such a cute game! lovely!

This game was incredible!! It kept me engaged the entire time, I had so much fun and the story was so creative and cute, this is really inspirational to me :)


fantastic! reminds me a lot of melon journey, which is one of my fav games. great work!

Yayyyy :)

Very enjoyable adventure! Exploring the town and talking to everyone was a lot of fun.
