Very Cute! Love the story!
Sorry if this is spam but itch.io has no way of sending PMs. :(
I'm from Soulsoft Electronic arts. ( https://soulsoftea.itch.io ) Sooo I'm thinking about hosting a Game Jam on itch.io. My idea is a bara game jam which I'll call "BARA JAM", and I'm trying to see how much interest there would be in such a jam, and if it would be worth hosting. Would this be something you'd be up to participate in or even co-host?
I'm thinking about having it in November and lasting 1 month.
I made a thread on LSF with more details here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51373
I'm really trying to see if this is a viable jam that people would even want. I hope so! I'll obviously be submitting an entry as well. =)
Hey, thanks for asking! We're going to be participating in Yuri Jam and will have other projects in the works afterwards, so I don't think we can participate. However, I've played a few bara games that were fantastic! I'd love to help out any way I can. What does co-hosting entail? I am definitely interested.
Hey BishounenP, yeah that's totally understandable. :) Initially BaraJam was slated for October but then I was informed that it would HARDCORE clash with YuriJam and so I moved it a month later.
To be honest I actually have no clue what "hosting" a jam entails...or even co-hosting one...uhhh, do you? lol. I had assumed hosting just meant answering questions about the jam, facilitating, promoting it and possibly verifying that the submissions are up to code...but if there's more, I have no idea what else.
If that sounds like something you could handle with me, just let me know! ^_^ Also, I played Strawberry Daiquiri recently, and must say, I don't usually enjoy kinetic VN's but I found yours had just the right blend of intrigue (brought on with curiosity about this futuristic world), lightheartedness, humor (omg the drunk guy! lol) and heart.
Is there any way we could talk on like Twitter or something instead of itch.io? Haha, just for more convenience really. My twitter handle is @bishounen_p. Send me a PM on there if you can, and we can discuss this more :)
would love for a part two from Orion's or Antonio's perspective as a sequel
I love this game, a lot was left unexplanied though. I hope for a part 2.
Clever twist! It's very sweet, and it's feels like there's something more after...?
Is this the intro to a larger story?
Maybe one day! For now, it was just meant to be our first VN, so it is a complete project.
I Actually have never Commented, and Probably never will again.
I really liked this, Way more than I should!!!!! Which tbh, its length adds to how amazing it is. I can Play through it. every. day. The Music is sweet and I felt warm the entire time Going though. This is absolutely Worth it.
Anyway- Thank you for making this.
This game is what 'short and sweet' was meant to describe all along! Manages to establish a nice atmosphere in its short runtime and is very genuine-feeling. Charming art and good writing in a nice, casual style which fit the vibe perfecly. All in all adorable. Worth anyone's time!
This was a super cute game, I enjoyed it! The music was nice and jazzy, set a good mood. Interesting 'twist' at the end. Art style is great. Seriously great work!!
There's a subset of visual novels called "kinetic novels" that Strawberry Daiquiri falls into; it's there to serve the purpose of showing you the story in a linear and organized fashion. I've made quite a few myself-- and they are very fun!
So I think you'd be more satisfied reading the story with that in mind-- instead of thinking of it as a game; think of it more as a comic or novel that you're able to control the pace of. :)
Thanks for explaining! As I've read more and more VNs, I've started to prefer less choices in them. I'll be sure to check out your VNs sometime too!
Aw hey, you're welcome and thanks for checking out my stuff! Right now I only have a handful of visual novels but I've got two BIG ones coming up with mostly linear plots, with tiny deviations. :D I make some pretty fun comics too! <33
Okay this looks like a cute game and well done- I'll check it out!
This was a cool little story. Played well and nice to have an ending. Shame there were no decisions to change the story but it told the story well enough. Sound was ok and played smoothly. The artwork was very nice. Great job... :)
I hope they make more in the future :)
I'm a little biased since I helped out with editing, but this is a very good and cute VN and I recommend it. :) It's cool how it just gives you a little peek into a future world, and it definitely left me wanting to see more of these fun characters.
