Ahhh, sooo pretty! All the cutscenes and CGs and visual effects (like moving eyes, chibis, falling leaves, etc) really make this a professional-looking VN! The music was great, too.

It felt much longer than 40k words for some reason... maybe the transitions and all the pretty things to look at... :)

I loved the protagonist - she was sweet, but not sacharinne; determined, but not overbearing, and patient, but not passive. Her mom was cool, too! We need more cool adults! I also liked the relationships based on friendship, and the respect you have for all your characters (no pointless fanservice, own motivations, etc). AND, it's a VN I could let my kids play, which is rare but nice to see. :-)

As someone who just finished helping create a NanoRenO VN about dragons in human form, I found the culture and mythology of this world very interesting, though quite different. I would like to see more works set in this world!

Thanks for a beautiful VN!

The 2 guys' voices sound familiar to me. Did they also voice in Seduce Me?

Thank you Apple Cider for making such a sweet visual novel! I drew you some fan art of Ilmari! (,,^_^,,) Ilmari is my favorite character from AJ so I decided to draw him in a more “realistic-animeish” style with an ink brush pen.: ... -and-their

@Selwyn Ahhh thank you thank you thank you for that lovely Ilmari <3 <3 <3

Hey, we have the Spanish translation of AJ done and incorporated in game, the only thing we have left is to put together a Spanish GUI and make a Spanish version of the website :)

As for the sequel (some people have asked for it) it's on our queue for after Caramel Mokaccino ^____^

Thanks to all of you for playing and enjoying our little game <3

Aww, this game is so CUTE! And I love this artist, it's the same who did Cute Demon Crashers, and Flower Shop Winter in Fairbrook, right? I love her work. :D

I just got this and played through all the endings! Everyone is pure and adorable and they're all my children now. And the art is jaw-droppingly gorgeous--the sprites, backgrounds, UI, everything! All the little details you put and the general cleanliness of the design makes it look like a professionally made VN, good job (especially considering that you made this on a nano schedule)!

The story was also really well written and the characters felt realistic. Also, not gonna lie, I saw the animated videos on the AJ website and I can't get the image of Ilmari and Kerr as a waterbender and earthbender (from Avatar) out of my head.

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful VN with us! :D

I can't believe I've never commented on this before! I've played this game a couple of years ago and it's one of the best. It's short but it's got awesome art and cute story. I loved all of the characters and even if they don't end up together, they have the whole friendship thing going on and it's perfect.

Thanks for the artbook by the way, the stuff in it totally adds to the feels of the game. You guys are awesome!
Playing games are wonderful. It's like living another life although short, yet it's unforgettable.
