A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A short kinetic novel made for Yaoi Game Jam 2018. Approximately half an hour of reading.

David's life isn't going quite like he imagined it would. The only place he could find work after college turned out to be an isolated small town, and the stress of his new job combined with the unfamiliarity of his surroundings is giving him trouble sleeping. One restless night, he takes a walk through the nearby forest and meets Ron, a cheerful stranger who's sympathetic to his problems.  But a gap in his memories the next morning makes him wonder whether their encounter was only a dream.

Such a cute and wholesome story! I loved how you developed the characters.  The foreshadowing was also a nice touch! 5/5!

Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it!

I loved this story! Moving, cute, with a touch of fantasy... The ending is a tad bittersweet for my taste, though, but I understand it fits the protag, so he can move on and make his way in life.  

Fully recommendable!

Thanks for reading! :)

A short and sweet VN with likable characters. The edited photos work suprsingly well as backgrounds and the music is pretty relaxing. The sprites and their movements are also really adorable. Thumbs up!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I'm happy to hear the photo backgrounds worked out okay too. I spent a looooot of time browsing through all kinds of creative commons photo galleries trying to find something like what I had imagined.

Seriously nice work with this game!!

The choice in music was great, and I seriously loved the little sprite animations.  When David inches closer to Ron, awww man that was cute. 

The story is very well written. I kind of figured out who Ron was at the start but I still enjoyed reading their interactions. Ron is just too cute. 

Overall, great job!!! 

Thanks Red! I'm glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun messing with the sprite movement. :)

Favorite character was Marty's ducktie. Quack quack.

Jane & I helped each other out on our VNs for Yaoi Jam, so I might seem a little biased here, but I really love this VN. It's very cute and her character writing is fantastic.
