Great work on the release!
Chiming in with everyone else- the artwork is unique and lovely- especially that of the main character. Very memorable :)

I've done only one route- that of the Unicorn Prince and jeez did it take a while for me to open up to that route.
I really dislike bad boy types XD

I suppose you wanted to emphasize the fluffiness and happy ending, but I would've liked to see more choices. Maybe not leading to a dire ending, but normal endings or (happy and extra happy) would've been good (depending on the choices picked). I felt as though it was more of a kinetic novel where you just pick the route you want to experience.

Thank you for reading through it even though it wasn't quite what you might have been looking for ^^

I think this was the best VN I've played in quite a while! This might sound odd, but I really connected with Acacia's negative moods. You expressed her sadness and rage like someone who's had firsthand experience with similar issues. I literally cried the tears she wouldn't. Not many otome games have such "undesirable traits" afflicting their heroines, and it was very refreshing to find one treat such a character with the care and respect she deserved. Maybe I too will get my own happy ending someday.

I don't think it sounds odd at all ^^ I'd hope that someone would possible be able to connect with Acacia's mood because even I was getting really emotional while typing up that part so I'd hope that I wasn't the only one ^^; I'm really happy to see that someone else can relate and that I type it out in a relatable way.
With my taste in stories I don't get flatter easily by compliments or pick-up lines so usually when I read a screen cap of one of the guys trying to hit on the otome mc's I usually roll my eyes while the mc is all getting flustered. So I wanted to do a game where my Mc had a little more thicker skin then that ^^; I also enjoy stories where the heroine is first treated with care and respect by the male love interest so that when he does start to pursue her all of his pick-up line seem more genuine and swoon worthy =^^=. If I'm getting cat calls right off that bat then that's gonna make me want to either ignore you or if you touch me then I might have to drop kick you in the face......if I was in a video game that is :3
I still have a lot more studying to do on visual novels and their structure but I'm glad to see that you were able to enjoy my first finished visual novel ^^ Thank you so much!

Congratulations on the release!
I just finished playing all the paths and I must say, I'm in such a hyper, fan-girl mood right now I feel embarrassed of myself.
This is such a great VN and I really admire you for finishing it in such a short time.
The plot was unique, the storyline amazing and the characters just lovely.
Acacia had such a strong personality, I loved it. ♥ It's really nice seeing a tough main character instead of the nice, pretty girl. Especially since I could relate to her in some situations.
Apparently I'm just as dense as a troll when it comes to visitors -cough- -cough-
I actually love everyone's personality I don't even know who I like best. >// v //<
Both of the good paths just made my heart all mushy-mushy, made me laugh, then be sad, angry, embarrassed, all fan-girly then laugh again but most of all kept me entertained and curious for what was going to happen next~
And I love how everyone's stalking you in both endings. How do you not notice a whole ballroom's watching you? -cough-
The concept of Aeron's personality twist was really nicely-thought as well. Even though I was so mad at him I felt like using him as a punching sack. = v =
Overall, it was such an amazing game ♥. I'll probably be talking about it for a couple days. It's still hard to believe you've finished it in only one month.
Honestly, everything about it was beautiful, from the plot, art to the suiting music. Perfect ♥

I just felt the need to say I really loved this game. The artwork is beautiful, and the story is just the perfect amount of fluff. I even recommended it to a friend, as an introduction to an example of a good visual novel that wasn't too lengthy. I think she enjoyed it, and I know for sure that I did. Especially knowing you finished it within a month, I must tip my hat to this game.
Just gonna strategically place this over here...
Quack!

Ahh I haven't been able to get this to work on my mac :'( When i open up the game, it has a black line across the title screen which looks like a glitch, and it wont let me click anything so that I have to force quit! Not sure if it is just my mac? I tried the mac version and the all versions links! Sad that I couldn't try out your game! :cry:

Thank you very much for reading it ^^ I'm really glad you enjoyed it. It took me a lot of work to get it done within a month and I was really tired after it was all over but I'm very glad to see so many people enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for the recommendation and for reading it ^^ I really wanted to do a simple and fluffy story so I'm glad that's how a lot of people have been able to see it as ^^

That's very strange. I'm not quite sure how to fix that. Maybe try downloading the game again? If I find any issues on my end with the game having starting issues then I can keep looking closer into the codes but so far I'm not really sure what's wrong. I'm sorry that I can't be of much help ;^;

I downloaded a ton of VNs before and never commented because I didn't have an account, but this was just so cute and had me fangirling so bad I just had to share my opinion! The game was so sweet and cute and everything that I felt so sad when it ended, in some moments during the game I felt confused when they called some character ugly or fat because they all were so pretty <3
During Damien's route I really liked Aeron and thought he was sweet, during the ending I was thinking "How can Edavine be possibly better than Damien?" but when I was in the middle of Edavine's route I regreted ever thinking that. I just yelled over everything he said, the relationship between Acacia and him was so sweet, cute and funny! And of course I started hating Aeron, I just wanted to punch him in the face since the first time he nagged Acacia.


If you ever start working in a new game I will so be stalking that project xDD Thanks for making this sweet game!

Hahahaha! I think Aeron has that effect on a lot of people ^^ but thank you so much for making an account to leave me feedback! That was so kind of you <3 I've been under the weather because of a *what I think is* stomach virus so I've been slow with my response but this really helped brighten up my day ^^ Hopefully my body can get back into shape after all the stress I put it through pulling so many all-nighters working on this project Q^Q Thank you everyone for all you kind words and encouragement because it really helps keeps me going with all the work that's left on this! <3
I've seen some reviews already about the game so I'll have to do a special thank you for reviewing the story in the bonus section as well ^^ Maybe I'll have one of the characters read over the reviews and give there thoughts on how they thought the review went ^^ A review of the review or something silly and fun like that? Anyhoo I should go get some rest but thank you so much again! It means so much to me!!

Wow, can I say this art is just GORGEOUS D: I am beyond impressed by the backgrounds especially D: I am mindblown, I could stare at them forever....I'm gonna play through all the endings and give a proper review.

Also, I got my friend to play too >:3 muahahahaha

EDIT: OK~!/

So I played through the game. WOW~ It is incredibly detailed and well written. The story really is captivating, and instead of just leaving it at 'He lightly brushed my cheek' You described so perfectly her inner feelings about every situation, its like you experienced it yourself. It was really relateable though. I was kinda surprised she has so much insecurities.
About that bad ending though ._."" I kinda thought it would be you ended up with Aeron and had a crappy life, but I mean...ugly smelly troll works too.
On the topic of trolls though, I love how you bring us back to reality by establishing that they're trolls. Like when that troll lady went haad on the momma D: and she dragged her out by the hair and I'm all D: WHAAAAT? and then its like, oh right she's a troll :3 its all good.

On a sidenote: I'm curious are you of Caribbean descent, idk I notice a lot of Caribbean artists draw like you/that style.

I cannot praise your backgrounds enough my god, I'm blown D: BLOWN~!

EDIT ON EDIT: Oh my god, how many times tonight am I gonna gush about this game xDD I have to say that when you were writing the fairy part I was thinking some weird, tiny fairy like cute like Aeron. I was not expecting chocolate hunkzilla to come out like that *g*

The story was very well developed, especially on Evine's part, more to why Acaia's the way she is and why she atcs the way she does. I think Demian's path really made her dreams come true, which is why I like his path. Yea he's a douche xD but, he's not really deep down, and I like that about him. Each guy has their own charms so I don't even think I could just choose one, they're both great and well developed...and I'm going to bed AHHH xD

It was a good play. ^^; ahem~
