I loved this VN, it's the first time I play  a VN with a manga style, in the beginning I felt a little weird (due to the game format) but I enjoyed a lot every scene and page of the game until the end...

By other hand, the art and animations looked nice, they gave them a special touch in the way to telling the story, and the music I found really emotional and fun according the scene.

Finally, about the writing I found really interesting and enjoyable with a touching story. ^^ Amazing work.


Thank you so so much for the kind words!


What a great little game! A touching story and the manga-like presentation fits it very well.

This was pretty long but, had a good message and was aesthetically pleasing. I feel like there was a bit to much detail at times along with some things that were said more than once but other than that it was pretty good.

I got great aesthetical pleasure from reading. Artstyle is lovely! Music really fits good! Loved eyes and talk animations, they adds alot. Story have many subtle emotional moments, such as the pinky, the release of tension in a scream, the silent confusion of the protagonist. The girls are very different and both are very interesting. I lived this story with your characters and got an injection of happiness at the end. Thank you!

***Do more of such kind!!!

Thanks for playing, I won't get your hopes up as the team has disbanded, that said, feel free to imagine or make a game like this ^^. Appreciate the positive feedback!


Very late (but is it ever late to play a game?) :D

I liked the manga style panelling, would be great to play on a phone! Props for monochrome colours, feels right for me :)

Thanks for playing, sadly a mobile port is not planned, we appreciate the feedback :)

And no! It's never too late to play a game!


I'm very late to this party, but still, I think you guys "won" the Valentine's Jam. ;) While the manga style was a nice bonus, the real highlight for me was the writing. It's not that easy to balance the drama and humour without going over the top or struggling to set up a clear tone, especially in a short game that doesn't have room to transition between "proper" storytelling and fluff. However, this game really did a great job of being both consistently funny and very real when it needed to. The way the main characters acted really made all the sense in the world considering they were crumbling messes, trying to adapt to their new situations and in the end gravitating towards each other. With a bit more time and a longer, more nuanced plot, it could've been exceptional by any measure, but for a jam entry, it was a really lovely treat. Thank you for putting it out. ^^

I'm ecstatic to have helped with this. Happy reading, everyone! ~ Zon


The story made me feel sad and then smile like an idiot...  The characters are really endearing and realistic, and the comic-book style looks great. I'm glad these two met each other, Selena and the MC really fit together.


Awww, thanks~
I'm really glad that someone enjoyed the result of a week's worth of writing from me. ^u^

I am thrilled you enjoyed the game <3
