I'm a love interest in my childhood friend's reverse harem [YaoiJam][Parody][BxB/G]

KICKSTARTER IS FUNDED!!
Thank you!


PATREON

The DEMO is now available!!!
Play the Halloween special!

A not-so-generic otome game with BL possibilities.

Instead of playing the heroine and choosing between several men that have typical dating-sim personalities, you play as the childhood friend. That's right! The route that's usually the easiest to complete is no longer available.

You are thrust into the world of a reverse harem, where your precious childhood friend is being hit on by two of your classmates. You can choose to either play the role of a love interest and try to win the heroine's heart, or... you can play your own game and try to make the two boys fall for you instead! The choice is yours!

Read the promotional art here.

1. What do you think about the premise of the game?
This looks like a very interesting idea, certainly, and I'm very keen to see where it goes. :)

How are you planning on having the female "protagonist" acting? Will she be actively pursuing either you or one of the other guys?

2. What do you think about the characters?
I can't really say much with only the descriptions, but they all seem nice. :)

Good luck with the game! :D

Thank you ParrotWatcher!
Emily will be treating all the boys in a friendly manner, that's all I can say at the moment. =D

I get the feeling it can be like the manga called That summer(Kim hyun) I loved all the characters especially the female character Jumi!
Well all the best with your project looking forward for it!

Thanks Stella!
I haven't heard of that manga yet, I might check it out.
But the idea for this game has been floating in my head for a while, I like making games where you play from a side characters pov rather than the typical protagonist.

1. What do you think about the premise of the game?

I love it! Games that turn the stereotype on its head are always a treat for me. :)

2. What do you think about the characters?

I think they look great! It's definitely got a very typical otome flavor to it, which is perfect for the concept.

As an additional note, the promotional material you showed in your second post was hilarious. I loved it. XD

Hi Adam!
Sure, I love watching let's plays of my games. You might have to wait until the end of the year for the full game to be released but the demo will be done in time for yaoi jam.

Here's some screenshots of the GUI. Note the backgrounds are unfinished and I'll just be using the lineart versions as placeholders for now.

Here is just another quick screenshot:

Once the demo is released, I plan to run a kickstarter to help fund the music and other other aspects for the game. So look forward to more posts during August. =]
