You should check the windows checkmark in the windows version options so it can be easily downloaded from the itch app, it doesn't recognize it as it is and says there is no available windows version :S
Great game... I like it...
hmm I want to translate it on Indonesian too. As you know, Indonesian language isn't a language option on Steam but I will try it to get perfect results
Gosh, this game...
I knew it existed vaguely but kinda forgot about it until my girlfriend reminded me a couple weeks ago, suggesting I play it to get over my own anxiety of entering women's public changing rooms and locker rooms and showers and such. That anxiety runs pretty deep and even prevents me from going into clothing stores or the women's clothing aisle in supermarkets.
But this short, sweet game about a trans girl like myself spending time with her friends and getting to have fun, it was nice. I didn't go for all the endings, because the ending I got playing through the second time, which was Erika End 2, was probably the most satisfying one for me.
Thanks for making this game, for blessing the world with cuteness and a safe way to experience anxiety all trans people face.
Great game indeed. I got the Erika ending, and I loved it! Hope to see more of your wonderful games in the future! :)
This is a truly beautiful visual novel, for people who lack knowledge or an understanding, I think this could help. It highlights struggles that transgender people go through. It's in a sense, an educational visual novel. It's very sweet, fun, and heartwarming. I really could rant about how lovely this visual novel is but I won't. I highly recommend this visual novel, I think a lot of people will enjoy this.
I'd like to propose you a collaboration. Can I have your mail address?
This game is so lovely! The simple art and language convey the story really well. I really enjoyed getting all of the endings!
One thing – I am a French student. Would it be okay with you if I translate your game in order to practice my French? If you like, I will make the results available to you, but I can't promise that it'll be perfect...
thank you for the lovely comment, and yes you can definitely translate the game to french if you like! i've sent the files to your email.
Hey congrats on making it to steam!
Thank you for this wonderful game, i found myself so deep in Haru's shoes, it was rather hard to continue some parts as it was uncomfortable to answer questions I had not thought about myself. It was a great game and I'm glad it was made it gives me a way to talk to other people about being trans and anxieties that come with it.
i'm sorry that some parts made you feel uncomfortable but i'm glad you liked the game!
Sorry i had a question
With which software did you build this game?
This was so warm and cute and literally made me cry. Thank you for making this game.
i wish i had the software to download this!! it sounds so amazing. I always want to support content by and for queer folx. lots of love.
This game.... As a trans man, this game really spoke to me. The experience of every hot spring, public pool, bathroom, put into this adorable visual novel that everyone- even those who have never had that dilemma- can play, relate to, and understand some of the problems.... It's kinda sappy, but I nearly cried near the ending. It does get better. And I hope that Haru, our hero, has a wonderful life.
the dialogue were a bit to long. that for the bad part. but otherwise everything was soft, Haru is a sweetheart and I loved everything ? I read there is a bad ending but I'm just like... meh no thank ? because the experience was so good and warmed my heart ??? thank you very much for this game ^^
This game is so adorable! I love it <3
awwwwww so cuuuute!
This game is incredibly cute and sweet. I didn't play through to get all the endings because I was really happy with the ending I did get. Also, the art and music are really nice, as well.
wow, i really loved this! thank you so much! i got all of the endings!
Really sweet game ! I didn't expect to love it this much but I did :)
I follow the advice given on another post to try to get the bad ending but I keep getting the good one instead xD
I someone know the steps, it'd be really nice to help me out please! (and I'd be forever grateful too)
thanks for playing! for the bad ending, if you use the hint system in-game, try to make sure the hearts go down with every choice.
This game is surprisingly tense, considering the setting and calm music. It's easy to get attached to these characters and how their night goes. I really enjoyed playing this game, and I feel like I've learned something from the experience.
Thank you for making this sweet game!
Had a good time on my first run through, on Android and love it.
However on subsequent runs things went awry. I used the double right arrow button to do what i thought would be skipping things I'd seen, but it seemed to fast forward through unseen stuff too? It's very unclear. Then i tried to delete my save to verify, but on Android you can't? And there's also no way to get back to the main menu once a game is going?
I'd like to see the other end without missing stuff, but i think right now that's only possible if i also slowly tap through everything repeatedly. :(
Unfortunately, I can't recreate your issue on my end. Double right arrow only skips stuff you seen (unless you have the option that skips unseen text). Can you check whether you have that option off?
You can't delete persistent data in Android through the app itself, but you can do so by clearing the data through your phone settings.
If you click Menu while running the game and then click Menu again, you can return to the main menu at any time, but unsaved progress will be lost.
Ah, double pebkac. Thanks for the answer and many sorries for the confusion.
My primary language is not english, and i was tired, so the simple "Unseen Text" checkbox (without warning) registered mentally as the opposite.
For the save data, when i tried doing that, i hit "stop app" before attempting to delete which caused it to cancel collecting storage usage stats and just show zeroes across the board.
As for the double menu button though, in the mobile app the menu button simply doesn't exist in the menu screen.
Would you mind telling me the Android version of your phone, the model and the app version? When I run the game on my phone as well as my emulators, the Menu button shows up at the bottom of that screen.
Ah, i was using the 1.0 apk, using 1.10 from google play store has the button. :)
Edit: I guess i should mention the reason i didn't earlier check for a newer android version was that i looked at the page of the game on here above, and it said version 1.0, which was the same as the file i had, so it never occurred to me to search for it on the google play store nor even think it might have a newer version there.
Such a sweet and lovely little game! Love the art, too. :)
Cute! It's actually really nice to see a visual novel with a trans character. It brings attention to the struggles trans people go through even with simple everyday things, and what it means to be a supportive friend. I really enjoyed it!
thank you for making this
Hey! ITS REALLY A GUD GAME! it really emphasizes 'bout trans problems!
And hey! I got all the endings in one hour :D
Btw What Font didya use for this game?
thank you! 💜
i made the font for english/spanish! the japanese font is setofont and the korean font is goyang.
This was a really great game!
I like it.
It light-hearted game with cute artstyle about some serious topic.
And it has multiples endings and meaningful choices.
It may be a bit short but I liked to play it again just to unlock more endings.
I'm so glad that you are trying to make your game even more accessible with the translations! It's a really wonderful game, which isn't afraid to speak out against transphobia and also is educating about concepts like dead-naming in an interesting way. I hope more people will take the time to play this visual novel, because it features not just many different endings, but also some well written dialogues and characters. Stunning work, keep it up. <3 That's why I recommended it on our blog and also created a cutted playthrough video for one of the endings. :) I hope more people will see something in this just like I did.
Erika End 2 is where it's fucking at my fellow gays.
I love Erika with all my heart and I would actually date her if I could. All of the characters in this are just *clenches fist* so good.
its wonderful ;w; thank you for this game
Your game is soooo cute, and I mean all of it: ost, drawings, story, characters... I loved it ❤️
