Features:

  • Detailed life simulation: take control of Amy's action, traveling in different locations to perform several tasks
  • Stat-based dating sim: money, culture, creativity, discipline, romance, energy and morale
  • High replayability: beside the normal ending, each character has a special ending that will require you to raise a specific skill at maximum, for a total of 9 unique endings!
  • Play in a living world: certain actions are possible only during specific times of the day, or days of the week
  • Mystery: who is the mysterious "Secret Admirer" that emails you in the game? Find out!
  • Beautiful manga artwork: including some special event CG and 8 different ending CGs with Gallery Screen
  • Relationship system: as seen in other Winter Wolves games, each character has a relationship value that affects gameplay and requires player to make the right dialog choices
  • Find the right strategy: explore the game world and learn what are the best tactics to raise specific skills
------
Today added the last few changes to make the normal Lawrence ending achievable and some small typos. But of course even if you find some minor problem, any feedback is welcome :)

The art in this is so lovely and the chibis for the sim parts are super cute. I don't think I'll ever be able to go after anyone other than Aaron, but Lawrence would totally be my guy if I weren't already attached. >.>;;

Hehe the chibis rule. Personally I would like to see more chibis in games in general! :D And yes, Lawrence is my favorite too and was fun to write the scenes for him :)

I thought I'd give this a try so I downloaded the demo. When I tried to run it after installation, it made my Anti-virus freak out (Norton). Is there something atypical with the file? It hasn't auto-blocked most of the other VNs from here.

I think is because of the installer program I use (clickteam installer). Most other VN here simply use zip or innosetup or other installer programs.
edit: sorry I thought you had problem in the installation! I think Norton is bothered because I use a online activation system, but apart that the program has nothing special!

I figured how to make Norton chill and can run the VN finally, yay. Time to check it out. :D

This is from a save file I'm continuing from... *thinks* the build before last, so that may be the problem.

But I got Lawrence's scene where you're scrubbing blue icing off the table, and after the scene was over it was still dawn, no time had gone by. I didn't realize this until I went to the library and there were no options at all there. After I went to the ice cream shop and worked till noon, like usual, everything else worked like normal. :)

I got the Osher scene and responded politely. For some reason (I think because it triggered on saturday?) it triggered again on sunday. I responded the same. Monday she went to work and it didn't trigger again. Maybe he just likes to talk to me now?

Oops. Went to the fancy restaurant after all of that happened and the scene retriggered and ended in a crash.

After I finish this game (so close to that Lawrence ending!), I'll probably delete them all and start fresh.

Aside from the bug reports... this game is a blast. Random note, but when I play this my kitten will just curl up next to either my speakers or the headphones and just purrrrr away. She approves of the soundtrack. :lol:

Yes sorry, I fixed this last night before going to sleep, so if you redownload the game now should work.

I've...only played the demo, actually(<- is poor high school student, orz), but...I love the art and I love, love, love the theme song! You can add one more person to the list of people who like the song.

Cool, redownloading now. :)

EDIT: Maybe it's just me being the lucky one to have things happen, lol.

The weekend note (I can do what I like, overtime earns extra, and so on) plays every single weekend.

Just randomly thought of how funny it is that you automatically get punted out the door in the morning on weekdays.. I pictured sweet little Gwenda cheerfully (and literally) kicking Amy out with a smile and a, "Have a good day, sweetie!"

Then I thought of the country song, "You drop kicked my heart through the goalposts of love" and... I'm sorry. I'll stop now. I get weird sometimes.

I also ran across this scene, and... it may be intentional, since Aaron IS in bed.. but.. this is the only scene so far I've seen with him like this. It's.. kinda funny. :D

You know... I didn't liked Aaron... But I feel really guilty when Amy flirt with Lawrence >A< like "While my boyfriend in the hospital I fell in love with another guy"...It's...ughhh...

But, anyway, I want to buy this game. Lawrence is a nice, long haired megane guy -shot- Need to fix my VISA card

Oh... oh, God, what!?!?

I clicked on the project page and saw a screenshot and was all "shoot, her friend is hotter than her" and then BAM, later on it says the character's name is Lawrence.

......O.O......
