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 ❤️
i really relate, thank you for making a game about this stuff!
Very cute art style ^^ And I love the story, along with the message. Thanks for making it!
I also covered this game for my YouTube channel. I hope it helps somehow!
I loved this so cute art and story. I hope more games like this :D
I really loved this story and of course the art style too! Can I ask where you took inspiration for it - have you done other illustrations like this before?
thank you! i don't usually draw much, but i was going for a flatter hourou musuko look and was inspired by an event that occured in japan this january.
I think it's a very unique style - usually you only see drawings like this in icon work and product illustrations, so I'd love to see more of it in visual novels. And thanks for letting me know about Hourou Musako, seems like an interesting story I should check out!
This was a very sweet game. Thanks for making it.
Congratulations on the success of ONHS! It's nice to see other peoples' visual novels about trans women too, especially visual novels that are topping the charts here on Itch! I wish you the best of luck, and I can't wait to finish your game! ^_^
Very cute! I got Normal and Erika 2 so far. I'll seek out other endings but don't know if I'll have the heart to go for the bad end...
if it helps, i promise the bad end isn't that bad and nothing terrible happens!
Super cute! Loved the art style and the writing, real quality for a jam entry :)
What a good game, Made me cry in a good way multiple times and helped me feel like I'm a little less alone. I hope you take care of yourself and do good.
I absolutely loved this game! only got one ending so far, but it's really amazing! Haru is basically me, so I really felt a connection with the characters!
This game really deals with the nuances of the trans experience in a great way, and has a super cute art style to boot. I almost died when the phone beeped heh. <3 Awesome work.
This game is soooo cute! :D
And I like how it portrays a trans woman in a happy situation, while still addressing the struggles and worries that might come from being trans.
Such a pleasant atmosphere too, this is the perfect game to play when I feel stressed out. Thanks for sharing this, I really liked this game! <3
I played it last night and got four different endings; when I relaunched it today, my gallery progress was gone!
Any idea how to prevent this from happening?
hmm the game should save after you unlock a new ending. would you mind telling me what platform you're playing on?
Mac OS X High Sierra, latest update.
when you go to ~/Library/RenPy/ on your computer, do you see a folder for this game, and if you do, can you tell me whether there is save data inside? there should be a persistent save file that includes the save data for what endings you have seen.
Not from this game, as far as I can tell. I have two files in the "persistent" folder, and no folder or file named after this game.
hmm, unfortunately I'm not sure why. do the two files in the 'persistent' folder look as if they have been created around the same time that you played this game?
one suggestion I can make is to have a folder called "Ren'Py Data" in the root folder where the unzipped game folder is, and renpy should automatically save the save files there, but that won't bring back the saves you've lost.
I love the art style
Are you inspired by Sinks Adventure?
Also if you ever need music or sound effects in the future I would love to help out
i don't know sink's adventure, but i looked it up and the art looks really lovely!
i would definitely love to have help with music/sound effects in the future since it's not something i have much experience with. if the chance comes up, how should i contact you?
if you have Discord mine is: jimmy#1291
or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you! i might not work on a new project for a while but i'd love to take you up on the offer if i have the chance.
I really enjoyed the story and game play.
If you plan to support more languages, please feel free to let me know. I can do English=>Korean translation. (email@example.com)
this is such a kind offer, but somebody has already offered to translate to korean! I really do appreciate it though, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game <3
This was so sweet! I'll have to try and get the other endings later on. (^-^)
