Expectation: Generic but fluffy BL story with 90% of the content being the characters blushing at each other

Reality: Extremely entertaining. A believable and very awkward romance. Very memorable.

Emphasis on believable and awkward.:lol: The character interaction was amazing.

The characters' personalities were also very likeable and the sprites complimented them really well. Their facial expressions were great.

This was adorable!! The conversation and banter was fun, it made me feel like a young'un again :)

Also the art is so purty! Awesome job guys :D

I kinda wish it was voice-acted. I think that would have helped to portray some of the emotion. Then again, I wish a lot of things were voice acted! So yeah, just my two cents. I have nothing bad or negative to say! Are you guys planning on a sequel or expanding the story into something larger?

I decided to play this on a whim. I found this game to be a cute short story with realistic and likable characters. I haven't played a visual novel in awhile, but this was a short and sweet VN to get me to want more in general.

Updated with a new download link for those of you who want to read it in German! Thanks to Massimow for providing us with the translation. :DDDDb

And thanks for the kind comments, everyone. The writer has seen them and was super happy to hear that you guys liked the story!! (I am also very happy with the compliments on the art, lol.)

Writer has already responded to sasquatchii on twitter, but just to reiterate: No, no plan on sequel/expanding the story. :(

To be honest, I kind of found Jay super annoying! He acts pretty childish for a grown man, haha.

That said, this game was a fun and charming little diversion, and the art was lovely!
