Edit: Sorry for the delay folks! Everything's up and running now. ^^

Download

https://gourmetvisual.itch.io/heartbaked

Or play the web version here: http://sandbox-adventure.com/heartbaked/

Time: 5-6 hours
Price: Free!

Questions:
- Did you enjoy it overall?
- What was your favorite part?
- What parts could be improved upon?
- Who was your favorite character?
- Would you like to see more games from Gourmet Visual?
- Any other random comments!

In a beautiful elven village hidden away in a lovely little forest, one pastry chef has just reached the last recipe in a sacred book passed down from her grandmother. Ginger has waited her entire career and quite possibly her life for this, and cannot wait to finally have created everything inside. However, the last recipe requires an ingredient that she doesn’t have in her pantry. TRUE LOVE! Ginger must go on a journey to find this true love, hopefully in one of the three admittedly quirky guys she knows. One problem though- she sucks at it. Good luck.

Basically a comedy otome game poking fun at the genre set in an elven village whose economy runs entirely around pastries.


Featuring:

+ Three boys to awkwardly attempt romance with!
+ 60,000 words!
+ 9 endings
+ 3 CGS
+ 8 BGs
+ Original music!

Characters:

Image

The protagonist, whose name can be changed.
She has three possible personality types depending on player
choices, and each boy will favor a different one.

Image

Ginger's childhood friend who helps around the store,
but is usually more of a hassle than actually useful due to
all of his pranks. He's a complete germaphobe
and is always seen wearing gloves.

Image

A rude, cheap little jerk who is quite self conscious
about his height. He can be found trying to swindle
people out of pretty much anything in their pockets,
or arguing with Ginger.

Image

New in town and a bit... eccentric. His greatest loves are
the two sheep he keeps with him at all times, and he
uses their wool to knit all of his clothing.

I'm amazed no one has replied to this thread yet because this is by far one of the largest projects that finished on time. I'm not done with the game, but I can already tell how much work and dedication was put into everything. I'm in love with the GUI, though my only gripe is that the text is very hard to read as the color is too similar to the background.

I chose Radly to romance at first, but I keep getting Ending 5 much to my dismay. Would you guys be able to post a hints guide soon?

I'd also like to ask if you would like a constructive critique along with my review of the game when I finish playing. I can post it with the review or send it via PM if you and the team are interested.

What a great game!!! I got Benjamin's...er Beeenjamin's good ending 'Not So Sheepish After All' before a guide was put up. It wasn't hard; all I had to do was watch the affection meter and see how high it was. He is a LOT like me. Odd, misunderstood, a bit of a shut in, and has a sad past. Plus he loves animals. How could I not pick him? I really enjoyed playing, and I'm happy you finished this in time for NaNoRen. Keep up the great work~ <3

Oh my God. I didn't finish the game. I'm still in day 3 with Carver. But this is GOLD. I can't stop laughing!!! :lol: The main character is hilarious, I love her personality. I will come back later once I've finished the game :D

Ups...In day 4 she starts calling herself Ginger, and Benajamin calls her that too. And I had a different name for her...

First of all, let me say that ALL THREE OF THEM LOOK ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS, I CAN'T WAIT TO ROMANCE ALL THREE OF THESE CINNAMON ROLLS

The game is downloading as we speak, but unfortunately, I'm super busy this week with school work so I'll have to wait until Friday to play, but I'm so HYPED to play it. But I can spend the week thinking about who I should pursue first, since I'm already having trouble just thinking about it. I have to say though, I feel Carver's pain of being vertically challenged, so I'm kiiiiiinda leaning towards him? Radley looks like a fun route to play and Benjamin seems too pure, too good for this world. I guess when I play it I'll just see where my choices take me since the personality of the MC determines the route?

(maybe it's the art that makes all of them look so precious? i'm loving the pastel color palette and general style of it all, by the way)

Anyway, I'll be returning with a full review once I finish the game!

I'M HERE AGAIN. WELL. First of all, let me tell you that Radley was my favorite from the beggining. But I wanted to make Ben's and Carver's routes first because I wanted the feeling of Rads as the "true ending". AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. I MEAN.
He's SO in love with her. It pained me watching him get jealous and happy at the same time when she was with another guy. REALLY MY HEART CAN'T TAKE IT. The true ending with Ben...auch. My poor baby Rads. Actually, I found it funny how Radley gets mad at Ben and tries to get in the way, but with Carver, he just smiles and tells her to get her man. (AUCH </3) He hates Carver, but he does nothing to try to separate them. I'm not saying it was bad! Quite the contrary ^^

And now I'm going to play Radley's route :oops: And die of love, probably. And come back and tell you how much I loved his story, probably. Sorry not sorry.
Love the game! And the music!

xD Yessss I was hoping someone would do Radley's route last :D

I know it just breaks my heart. Especially like, drawing Radley's house and stuff I was like: THIS IS SO TRAGIC. THIS GAME NEEDS TO BE LISTED UNDER TRAGEDY. And yes, I feel like for Carver its because he's known Ginger as long as Radley has, whereas Ben is the new guy and Radley's like NO NOT FAIR xD


I hope you enjoy your 'true ending' c:
