My project for YaoiJam 2022!  

This VN was completed  2 months between July 1st and September 1st 2022 (Though I have plans to continue to update it in the future!)

It was super interesting to see what I could accomplish in 2 months! I've documented the progress if anyone's interested in seeing how everything went on a week to week basis.

Imagine after getting them two together and maybe Nanala gets a girlfriend they all look at y/n and try to get them hooked up too lol

Thank you very much! (Something along those lines might be in the works already!) 

Welp I'm gonna get my hands on that game when it comes out.

Hello there! I finished this game yesterday night and just wanted to say this was an overall very enjoyable game to play, really made my day better (Also a very strong sense of deja vu since my friend was just like Hayden) I wanted to ask do you plan to add more features or plots in the future. like JKHA 2 or some sort, I would really want to see more of these characters

(+1)

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

First I'd like to update the game with a lot of small things I couldn't include in the Jam's timeframe (some additional animations/poses, maybe some UI customizations, maybe some CGS) and just generally flesh this project out on a techincal level.

In terms of more story- very early days but I have a small second project in the works! ;0; I'd definitely like to do more with these characters in the future!

I just want to say! This game is so cute! To heal! ! My language can not express its good, I like it too much!

Thank you very much, I appreciate it!! <33

(+1)

I really loved playing your game ! The characters we're so adorable and the story so interessting !

I don't know why but i wanna see more of Arley and Hayden's relationship♡ i also wanna see the MC playing as a matchmaker again with their neutral face x) and also what Nala's good girlfriend searching is going on !xD

Anyway, i really loved this game, thank you very much for sharing it♡

Thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoyed it!! ♥

AAA THIS WAS SO CUTEE I really enjoyed every second of it and I was sad when it's over ;-;

The whole game looks so adorable, it goes hand in hand with the wholesomeness of the story! I really enjoyed thirdwheeling Arley and Hayden, I think that this is the first time playing as a matchmaker in these sorts of games, and I really enjoyed it. Maybe I should get a degree in matchmaking LMAO

But not just the main couple, I even found myself getting charmed by the side characters (I hope Nala gets a good gf one day). Love the MC's looks and characterization, I think someone down in the comments said it, but they give off a huge aroace vibe and I'm all for it. 

All in all, good game! Super fluffy and made my day sweeter, thanks for sharing the game with us!

I LOVE THE MC SO MUCH?!?!?!

Thank you!! I'm glad you do!

(+1)

god i loved this game, the art is really pretty, the characters and their interactions are both endearing and entertaining to witness, and most of all... i would love to be nala's gf <3

it's alright if MC doesn't tho aha i like the fact that u can potentially hc them as aroace as well :) but thank u for creating this game ^^

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!! ;0; <33

Is there a name for the character with white hair? Or do they have a gender?

(+1)

Never decided upon a canon name, but I see MC as non binary ;0;

(+2)

SO CUTEEEE!! I loved all of the characters they're all so charming. Nanala supremacy tho

The game was really cute! It was an interesting  take playing as a match maker in a BL game. All the characters  are endearing and I really liked how expressive the sprites was (Nala's was my favorite).

One problem  I had though was the text being quite difficult  to read ( white text with  really thin border on white background  ). I had to push my screen closer and strain my eyes to read the text properly. I suggest switching to black text or at least something darker, as even though  the white text looked nice, it's  quite distracting. The UI and textbox themselves are really cute and fit the game theme.

Thank you for the feedback! I'll try to add in some changes/options for the next update- I'm glad you enjoyed it all the same! Sorry for the eye strain! ;0;;

Hey! I played your game a few days ago and I thought I would leave some feedback (especially since I also released an entry with a similar premise, although we did take different paths).

And I really enjoyed this game a lot, and that's an understatement: the protag was endearing, the main couple is tremendously cute (I even have a personal crush on Arley), and I'mma fight for Nanala to get the girlfriend she deserves.
I found the story well-paced, progressive yet fast enough considering the time-frame you've given yourself: the characters could expand their personality and their feelings in an effective yet cute fashion.

I also have to mention the art: from the characters, to the GUI, to the backgrounds, it was a very cohesive ensemble that really worked with the cheerful tone of the game!

(+1)

I really appreciate the feedback/glad you found the characters endearing especially!! ;0; That's one area I'm still a little self-concious about haha; Same for the pace of the story/everything really- Thank you very much!

(+1)

This was really cute! I liked the character dynamics and the art is so pretty and expressive. Lovely little game overall <3

Thank you very much!! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Been following the progress too. Glad to finally play.

It's just so damn cute. I absolutely adore your style.

Also props to the composer. The serious/romantic track was giving me chills.

Thank you very much! I'm super happy with how things turned out, and Carl did a great job!!

(+1)

Omg

<333

i've been watching the devlogs very closely and i'm excited for this- i've seen a lot of otome games and all that, so a more matchmaker approach to a game is really unique to me and i love that so much
excited for another game from you!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you're excited!!

(+1)

Uwa, I was hooked by the cover >3< I'll be patiently waiting 

Thank you! I'll be posting Devlogs as the weeks go on to show my progress!
