Then again, she was turning 18 soon, so things were bound to change.

A/N: This Nano was filled with UPs and DOWNs. The only reason this was even possible was because of wingz's amazingly on-point work with the art, Godline's lightning fast beta-ing and the latter's enthusiasm for project no-face... XD
I feel like SO MUCH was done in the final push for release. And it wouldn't have been possible without all the support! T^T

Thank you for your time, and hope you Enjoy!~

It's the best!

And I'm not entirely biased.

It should eventually be on Google Play here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=susz.vw

Eventually...

Sayumi is incredible by the way to have done the vast majority of this on their lonesome. Talented, talented person. :)

This was a fun game to play, the characters were interesting and the CGs were lovely. Good Job!! ^^
I do feel bad for fake fiance though. He was a sweetheart without a name.. What is his name!!? lol
Working on: sci-fi sprites and another project with Owl

YOU DO NOT UNDERTAND HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS
I CAN'T EVEN WRITE A PROPER COMMENT BECAUSE I'M SCREAMING AND GIGGLING AND FANGIRLING SO HARD OK OK OK I'M FINE JUST BREATHE, JUST BREATHE MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN

...
...
...

I'm fine now.

OKAY.
This is the best NaNoRenO 2017 I've played so far. And I've played 4.
SO MANY SHOJO MANGA FEELS.
They were perfect. Every dialogue was pure perfection. It made me laugh, cry, giggle like a schoolgirl. The MC was funny and original, I loved her. AND HIM. Oh boy,
when he was like "I'VE BEEN MANIPULATING YOU PRINCESS BECAUSE EVERYTIME YOU TRY TO LEAVE I PANICK AND PLAY WITH YOUR FEELINGS SO YOU DON'T LEAVE ME BECAUSE WELL LET'S FACE IT I LOVE YOU I'M TRASH LIKE THAT"
I got the best ending I think.
They kiss and he promises to marry her!!!! And poor fake fiancé helps them
and I'm NOT playing any other ending if that means they don't end up together. Because my goodness they totally are my new OTP.

Congratulations. This game is AMAZING.

Congratulations for completing VN on NaNo!

I played through it fully, the story and reactions of MC are so cute and fluffy ^_^
I hoped to see face of mysterious fiance and it actually happened! :3
Thriller plot twists go pale in comparison with this one :D
You're awesome, I'll be waiting for your next works!

P.S. Actually registered to say that this visual novel is just great :D

@amora: Glad you like the look of it. Be sure to let me know what you think afterwards, even if in just a sentence or two! ^^
-------
@Godline:
Eventually XD
Haha, says the awesome person who worked a LOT on multiple projects! You hard-working bot, you!
---------
@wingcinna:
Thank you for playing! Personally, I'm kinda in love with our artist's colouring style! Future goals! T^T
Would it be irresponsible if I said, he hasn't officially been named yet? Ridiculous suggestions like Engelbert was thrown around... But not happening. XD
----------------------
@Kirlett
WAHA, Thank you so much for your review! T^T Glad that they seemed like OTP material! I mean, I was honestly scared people wouldn't like him too much, so tried to make him seem not so frivolous! >.> Not sure how that went.
Lol, that line made me giggle. He's lowkey trash, alright.
Also, yes! You got the best ending. There's only one easily avoidable bad ending really... The second one isn't bad, it may dash the OTP dream, but it may also make you feel less bad about fake fiance being the sweet little silhouette he is.
Fiance path!
-----------------------------------
Kelanael:
Thanks! It was an uphill climb, but thanks!! XD
You secretly think it, it happens!! Just thought the sudden face revelation would be funny/cute in a way.
PS- Awww, that's so... I don't even know what to say! Welcome to the forums, though! You'll surely have fun if you stick around!!!
--------------------
Thank you all SO MUCH for playing and taking the time to leave me a few lines. It means so much!
Currently, kind of sort of overwhelmed by the response received so far! TT^TT

Well, I don't think I completely agree(sorry). It's not a crime, but framing someone is not right either. The whole thing with "You pushed me and I twisted my ankle because of you" isn't very nice.
It looks so awkward with spoilers only :D

Engelbert was a splendidly inappropriate name. ;)

Anyway, for those who want to play the android version, Google Play has kind of been jerky and blocked the build for 'impersonation'.
What nerve! ;)

It won't be too much longer now I hope.

Aha, it kind of does, huh? XD
I agree! I don't remember right, but I think we wrote that part because it seemed like she wasn't really that bad of a person? Or because the aquarium date needed DRAMA! XD
------------------------------


And as Godline said, the Google Play scuffle has ended, and we're now live. So if anyone wants the android version...get it here

I know, right? ^_^
In terms of real life he, maybe, is a better match for Shuna. But we deserve a bit of fairytale, so both of the boys are just awesome!
