man, what a nice game.
I can't tell exactly what I felt while playing it. I told my friend about it and she saw herself as Haru. I guess it explains a lot about the topic, showing points of view and making us understand how trans people feel about situations and some questions.
The art is very cute too.
I feel bad for not having money to help the creator, tho... but I really enjoyed their work. I hope they make more and more cute games like this.
What a lovely game. My girlfriend and I are both transgender so this story really speaks to me. It was a wonderful story, I adore Haru very much and I am glad she got to go into the hot spring. <3
Super cute and wholesome, i really enjoyed this game, its art,its story and everything else.
even tho i accidentally stumbled onto this game, it was so good that i HAD to make an account to comment!!
the art is super cute & the plot(?) (sorry, i dont know much about games ^^;;) helped me experience a new perspective! thank u so much for making this game :D <3
This was such a delight to play. It felt personal and intimate in a way that can be hard to achieve. Haru's experiences and feelings are clearly her own, but it's also clear that they probably aren't very unusual. (And the art style! I ooh'd and aah'd all the way through at the cute art.)
Thank you for making and sharing it!
I just wanted to say, thank you for making this game. It's just the type of game I've really come to admire: small events offering deep and sensitive reflections on real life issues and concerns. I could feel the weight of every question that was imposed onto Haru and found it a very powerful storyline to play through.
I think it's important for players to realise that it is set in Japan and present Japanese characters and customs, so interpretations of this VN should be considerate of this cultural distinction. Thank you again npckc for this sensitive exploration into the life of a transgender girl. (My sister and I recorded a video of our read through and comments.)
This artstyle is perfect. Can't wait to play this.
This is a beautiful game. So sweet, so cute.
What a sweet game~ I got all the endings, but I think that my favorite is the Erika 2 end. I really like the art too!
As someone who has similarities to Haru, thank you for writing this.
So cute and beautiful! Such a sweet way to teel the story <3
So many languages! Wow!!
I was happy to play it with Korean! really cute and heartwarming game.
I've tried to play the game many times but this message keeps showing up, Please help!!
Esse jogo é muito bonito. Adorei a história e achei que vocês abordaram as dificulades dos transgêneros e homossexuais da maneira correta. Recomendo a todxs!
Such a charming little game. I loved the interactions between all the characters! Really lovely work on this.
As a transgender woman and IT specialist I want to thank you for writing this. It makes it emotionally easier to write my own characters seeing it already done so well.
This game is so cute! its really good!
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...
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.
