I just found this game and I loved it! Keep up the great work, and I can't wait for future releases/updates! 


Great game, absolutely loved it! Though I was wondering if theres a walkthrough or something because I'm having a bit of trouble

thank u very much!! there's no walkthrough (that i know of?) but the story is pretty linear, so you can rest assured you didn't miss out on anything. only the intro scene and the first three dates of greg's route are available.


Heya! I actually legit made an itch.io account just to comment about this game. Personally? I freakin' love it. The art is incredibly well done and each piece is aesthetically pleasing to look at, the writing has a fantastic balance between meta humor and dark humor. The characters are convincing and multi-dimensional with lots of draw to each, while also being consistently written. For annoying  companions, ying and yang are actually written to the extent where they're a welcome addition to every scene. They never feel overused and they always feel perfectly timed.

I especially love the combination of how you used the gargoyle's ability to, well, fly to sort of give him a notoriety in his past time hobby. It's a sort of detail and combination work that I, myself, as a writer, would certainly miss to utilize. Seriously, this thing is amazing and that's coming from someone who groans every time they see a super-typical visual novel dating sim on Steam. 

Keep up the good work you guys. You seriously have something going for yourself, and I'll be in heavy anticipation for any upcoming releases. I'd love to see this game in its full actuality!

thank you for the kind words!! back in october, i couldn't shake the feeling that this was one of my weaker scripts, so it's a relief to hear that you enjoyed it so much. greg was a brilliant character concept from koi, and i tried to do him justice with his hobbies and whatnot. kudos and good luck on your own writing :3




Love what there is so far! Great job guys :)
