Plain [Romance/  🕝 Time-Travel 🕦 /GxG/FREE]

Due to some serious delays not sure if we can really call this for yuri jam anymore... but it's out now. Please, enjoy!

Story:

Riley is a completely unremarkable woman, if you were to ask her.
A plane ride towards a job that could change her destiny ends in disaster
when there's a critical engine failure during flight. It would be the end
for Riley too, were it not for a remarkable woman who claims to be
from the year 2165.

Yup, it's a time travel story folks.

Characters:

Image

The protagonist. Riley was a sous chef for years, mistreated and underappreciated in the kitchen.
The very day she was going to interview for a position as head chef at a fancy restaurant, she was
in a plane crash and died. Or she would have been if she wasn’t brought to the future. But in this
world, cooking is a dying art, and she's the only one who can revive it. She decides to attempt being
a professional chef again in an attempt to prove she can make a significant contribution to society.
If she can't, however, the consequences could be far more severe than just having to go back to school.

Image

A historian from the year 2165. Her job is to travel back in time and investigate events that happened in
the past without disrupting the future. She's a fun-loving woman who knows what she wants, and isn't
afraid to go after it. Finding Riley has made no significant contributions to society, she decides to bring her
into the future to allow her a second chance after hitting it off on the plane.

Image

The head historian and a very strict, serious woman. She doesn't appreciate Max's nonsense and if the
woman wasn't so good at her job Cecilia would have fired her long ago. She respects confidence and intelligence.
Her outwardly frigid demeanor might make it hard for people to get a read on her, but Cecilia isn't afraid to
speak her mind and make her thoughts known.

Hi. I would have played this pretty much as soon as it came out about 2 months ago.

If I recall, I got a successful ending with Max (maybe second try) then found out what happens if you go back and then made a couple of unsuccessful attempts to win Cecilia. It was interesting enough, but after a couple of failed attempts I normally give up on a VN route unless there is a guide.

It was a surprise that in a game that appears to offer two female romance options, my first playthrough finished up as
happily ever after with a boyfriend.
Are there other endings I missed?

It is funny that that's the ending you got! It's one of the more difficult ones haha. Thank you so much for the reply :)

Cecelia is difficult
but generally picking the opposites of what you picked for Max would work. Choose the things that would make Riley less insecure basically haha.
We may eventually come out with a guide!! :)

Hey, I posted a review on your itch.io page for Plain, but I figure I might as well post one here too!

I loved this VN. Like, genuinely, it was awesome. The art was really beautiful, and I enjoyed the creative plot and the diverse characters.

There were some typos throughout, but most of the time, the writing was really well-done!

I did end up getting a romantic ending for Max (as well as...so many...bad routes)
but I ended up getting the boyfriend romance when I tried to get with Cecilia, just as txqina wrote. It wasn't disappointing so much as??? Unexpected
I tend to be good at guessing the "right" choice in VNs, so I maybe will try to romance Cecilia again.

I really appreciate the time and effort that went into crafting this game, and I especially love that it's...gay. Seriously, there are too many straight romances here, and that gets real boring, real quick.

Overall, this game was really enjoyable and refreshing! Great job!

Edit: Got Cecilia's romance end. It was so cute, agh!
