I played this quite a while ago at a time where only the first dates were available to play. I'm not sure if that's still the case, so keep that in mind for my comment, haha. This game is wonderful. It should be illegal to be this cute. I fell in love with all of the characters almost instantly in a way that I didn't expect (especially with Angelo, I honestly expected to hate him). The art is awesome and the dialogue is iconic. I love this game and I can't wait to replay it if/when it's finished.

Hi, thank you so much for taking the time to write! ❤  I'm glad Pinkmatch was able to resonate with you. 

Yes, only the bad endings and first dates are available in this version. While I  fully intend to return to the game after my current obligations, it'll be some time from now. You sure got me wanting to go back and replay the game for myself though lolol, I miss my boy Angelo.

This is the cutest thing. Period. It ticks so many great boxes - relatable socially stilted/robot character, over the top campiness, genre/archetype subversion, and fantastic presentation and UI design. I also love the added bit of comedy where the names change as the android gets more info (Ey yo Jolene made me laugh out loud. Honestly, Angelo is just such a fun character all around.). I'm super hyped for any future updates you have planned!!! Thank you for sharing the game!

Hi, I really appreciate the comment! Characterization and humor are super important to me. I didn't want to make a game that takes itself too seriously, you know? I just want to make people a little happier each day. 

So thank YOU for playing! ❤ I'm super hyped for future updates, too! 

Ahaha this is so cute! The placeholder screens seriously made me laugh- it was such a nice pick me up after a hard day. I'm a big fan of that "campy but also feelings" tone that this has going. 

I'm looking forward to future updates for sure!

I will treasure this comment forever. :) ❤


I'm glad that's the impression you got; I feel like I've fulfilled a couple of my game design goals.

Thank you for playing.

Thank you so much for making this game my life is better with it in it hahaha.

He love loves you too. Thank you for playing!

I finally got to play this! I was looking forward it! Even though visual novels/dating sims aren't my jam (the only one I've ever played is Doki Doki Literature Club...), I really liked the experience. Also, for a two-week project, this is some quality product. Thank you!

[SPOILERS AHEAD]

I didn't played the whole thing, I arrived at the point where I tidy Berry's room. Should I be worried that I relate to the android when they overanalyze situations/people? Probably not. The characters are funny, I understood half of Angelo's lines but the other half I found it hilarious, and I love some options (inventing ways to overtake humankind is my favorite hobby) and the "background music stops" moments (like the one at the end of the first encounter with Sanga). Good job with the visuals too, perfect for the theme. And the Barstucks line was gold.

Keep up the good work, this was real fun!

My gosh, you're welcome! 

A couple of people have expressed that they could relate to the android, which is a relief to hear. One of my goals is to write main characters  who are blank slates without making them too bland. I'm glad you had fun with the game! Thank YOU for playing! ❤

>Compliment :)

Wow! Really good presentation and interface! I was amazed by how good this game looks, it's almost professional. The story was also really good, I loved the quirky humor (Ey Yo Jolene!), the characters were very amusing.

This is silly, but I *really* liked the placeholder for the second part of the game, ha, ha. I will treasure this version always.

Thank you!! Presentation definitely became our focus once it was clear I wouldn't have time to write everything, so I'm grateful you picked up on it.  And story of course is always important, I dig that you and I both prioritize it in our games.  👉 👉 

And not silly at all, I appreciate your comment on the placeholder.  It helps solidify my decision to keep this version around, even if I later make a full release. ^^
