XOXO Droplets [Otome Dating Sim][Comedy][Free/Paid]32% Off

XOXO Droplets is 32% Off until October 17th to celebrate the final major update, a ninth romance option in the Halloween-Haired party boy Lucas Kaiser!
----------------
XOXO Droplets is a massive dating sim about a humorously jerky young lady and her mission to woo one of six uniquely, but equally, obnoxious guys.
★★★★★★★

The story begins when our nameable protagonist finally transfers into the boarding school of her dreams at the start of her junior year in high school. It would be perfect if it wasn't for that little catch attached to her enrollment: her parents will only let her keep attending the school for her remaining two years if she doesn't make everyone there hate her by shunning them, like she always does.

Do your best to show just enough interest in the other losers around to appease the folks while still having time to chase after all the attractive guys in the MC's afterschool group, which just so happens to be a group for chronically unfriendable people.

★★★★★★★

No, seriously folks. When we say the protagonist and main love interests are a big ol' jerk squad it's not a mistake and it's not an understatement.


Rated T for crude humor, censored swearing, and suggestive dialog

Congrats on the release, guys! I know some of the VAs in your list and they're awesome, so I can't wait to hear what they sound like in-game :D This is a really huge project, great job on getting it all finished and shipped!

Congratulations on the release of a great game! I tried the free version of the game for about 2 hrs before I decided I just had to buy it. Although I love the game so much, I unfortunately suck at managing the cliques. : ( Still, absolutely loving it! And somehow, even though the bachelors are all douches, more or less, they’re kinda charming and likable in their own way.

@Dovahkitteh
Thank you very much :D! The VAs were definitely wonderful to work with.

@sonnenblumen
Haha, thank you! If you hate the cliques you can go to Cala's shop and enter 'they-should-know' for an instant boost of 1,000 RP with all six Cliques. We've got more cheat codes listed here, if you're interested;

I'm happy to hear our awful boys have charmed in their own weird way C:.

I usually don't like jerky boyfriends but when the MC is a jerk herself, it's so fun and refreshing. Also, fortunately I'm doing better with cliques this time, no one hates me yet. Maybe I should push myself to become the prom queen.

Will there be any walkthrough on how to open all dating spots?

Haha, thank you. I'm glad you feel that way. A bunch of jerks can definitely be a tough sell, I'm happy it didn't rub you the wrong way. Good luck winning the title!

And, yep, how to get the date spots is mentioned in a tutorial we posted-
Work part-time at the Hobby Shop and Accessory Store to get those as date spots.
Have 500 Reputation Points overall to unlock the Arcade.
Have 700 Reputation Points overall to unlock the Amusement Park and Haunted House.
Have 1,000 Reputation Points overall to unlock the Winter/Fall and Spring/Summer beach.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Populars to unlock Fuchsia.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Jocks to unlock the Archery Range.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Nerds to unlock the Botanical Garden.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Artsies to unlock the Museum.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Troublemakers to unlock the Karaoke Joint.
Have 200 Reputation Points with the Others to unlock the Countryside.
Get the first 2 Side Conversations with anyone other than Kam or Adrian to unlock the Indoor Pool.
Get the first 2 Side Conversations with Kam to unlock the Game Center.
Get the first 2 Side Conversations with Adrian to unlock the Zoo.
Ask one of the main guys to be your boyfriend to unlock the Tunnel of Love.
The school date spots are available automatically.

The full tutorial can be found in the game by clicking the More button on the main menu, and it's also a normal text walkthrough on Steam-

I'm really sorry you ran into that. The error has already been fixed in the current build of the game. If you download the updated version and load a file leading to that scene, you'll be able to get past with no error.

Absolutely loving the game so far! I'll definitely comment more of my feelings later, but I have come up with these terrible puns to express my love for this game.

1. Bae is Bae (because he is my favorite character so far.)
2. Fanservice? More like Pranservice (because he wears the most revealing outfits LOL)
3. Nate: Putting the -ate in Irate since 20XX (because he mad like 95% of the time, especially in those meetings LOLLLL)
4. Jeremy? More like Pair-o'-me, because if I had two hearts, I'd share since Jeremy clearly needs one. (Next playthrough, pyo, next playthrough.)
5. Mount Everest? I think u meant Mount Everett because boy, talk about a mountain of issues--
6. Shiloh. Meh. I'd come up with something but no matter what it is, you'll like it anyway. So 'meh' it is. (*Shiloh, somewhere, probably*: 'u're the beeest)
7. MC (who I named Lizzie Esposito). I'm not into girls, but I'm into pearls and girl clearly u've been chillin' in an oyster--

LOL. I hope I find some time to get my thoughts out but I'm still only on my first play through.

Haha, Bae and Shiloh would be very charmed. Not sure the other guys would be as enthusiastic about their given puns. I think they're top notch, though! And I'm really glad you've liked the game so far >v<.

@Mytoastlovesyou
No problem :>.

Woaaah this looks so goodImage Too bad I can't access the other guys Image I'm like soooo interested in Bae Pyoun but a student like me who can't even afford to get a card cannot pay to access him... Image
But congrats on your release! This looks like it's going to be a big hit! Fighting!
