My project for YaoiJam 2022!  

The initial version of 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.

NOTE: This game is currently in development! 

It's perfectly playable right now, but I intend to continue to add to it! (Add more CGs, flesh out certain scenes, etc!)

In the meantime, I appreciate the feedback on what you feel needs improving on! (as well as what you liked!)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

31/3/23 UPDATE: A sequel/sister title has been released! If you enjoyed this game, please check out the second!:

I hope you enjoy it!

THEY ATLEAST KISSED , BEST GAME I LOVE IT SO MUCHHHH

i love this game so much i will keep saying it untill someone tries to stop me gosh 

(im also very HAPPY that nanala also got someone;)  

From what i can tell, this is a very wholesome and fluffy BL vn and i'm a SUCKER for cute things. Nothing can explain how much i love fluffy and wholesome games. Too bad i can't play it because me too broke for a PC 😭 Wishing for it to be playable mobile soon so i can play it!!!

am i stupid, or am i stupid? i don't know how to play this. it won't let me.

What are you trying to run it on? You should just be able to DL, unzip the game, and click on the exe to play! :0

(1 edit)

ahh this game starts on my bday, sept 27! i found that so cool lol!

also, i love this game so so much! the art style is amazing, the soundtracks are so calming, and the characters are so likeable! i love the aesthetic of this game. the ending is so satisfying too!
also random but i named mc Roman lol. i feel like that fits them very well

I have already commented like 2 times under this game, one a request for an aandroid ver and one a review. This one is a request if I can wrote fanfiction. Pls.

(+3)

Apologies, I do intend to do an android port at some point, but it's a little more involved than just a pc/mac/linux build ( at least for what I know about the process currently....)

Fanfiction (any fanworks, really) are completely fine! Please show me if you do, I'd be very flattered!

(+1)

good game, great work!

(+1)

Thank you very much!

bakugou and deku

N O

literally the first thing i thought of...

is that you kliff fire emblem

asking again, but how to download on linux? :p

(+1)

Added a dedicated linux version! (Which is an option Ren'Py (the engine this game is made with) allows me to export for-- apologies, I was under the impression the windows one worked for linux too!!)

Unfortunately I don't have a dedicated linux system so I'm not exactly sure if anything special needs to be done, but for the other versions, you have to unzip the game to then click on the .exe to play! (I hope that helps! ><)

Hello ! Here is what you should do (i renamed every file with the game title for "kiss" because it's shorter)

./kiss/lib/py3-linux-x86_64/kiss

Hope this helps !

started crying when the game ended. i love how the MC has a genderless appearance and i love the artstyle. overall a cute game, 10/10, i love it <3

REAL

(+1)

this was so cute omg. I love Hayden and Arley wish i had them irl :3

omg will you marry me :3

-trans cake mix

Short but nevertheless cute story.

ok so i really want to play this but i only have linux and when i look through the files i can't find anything to download. please help :p

(+5)

 bro i was literally jumping up and down whenever nanala said something about wanting a gf. IM RIGHT HERE BBG oh yeah and i guess hayden and arley are neat too. but fr props for making me so invested in these characters in such a short amount of time. the art is really great, dialogue feels natural and charming, just a well rounded experience in general. thank you for making this!!

how do I download it? I tried downloading it and it’s in my files or whatever but I can’t play the game..I don’t know how this works, if you can tell me I’ll appreciate it! <3

The game comes as a zip file, so you have to extract the contents before being able to play the game!

On windows, you'll get a folder with an exe file in it, and you just double click on the exe to play it!

(Though sometimes windows mistakes Ren'Py games as suspicious due to having an "unknown publisher", so you might have to deal with windows trying to block the application-- if you just hit "run anyway" it should be fine)

A similar thing can happen on Mac too so you might have to open system settings, go to security tab and scroll down and click "open anyway" (I don't have a mac myself, this is a second-hand account from a friend, but I could ask for further info if needed!)

I hope that covers any issue you might be having! if you have any followup questions, please feel free to ask!

ah, okay, thank you very much!

So cute!! Love the art and music. Such fun banter too. Awesome job, I was rolling my eyes so much at their antics LOL. I love how Arley's actually pretty wise and Hayden can be sly when he wants to be!

(+1)

SOOOO cute <3

I am screaming

(+2)

ARLEY AND HAYDEN REMINDED ME OF MY BOYFRIEND AND I AND THE WHOLE STORY REMINDED ME OF HOW PEOPLE WANTED US 2 DATE SO BADLY AAAHHHH 10/10 ITS SO SHORT BUT ADORABLEEEEE

(+4)

got this game and streamed it to my girlfriend and did stupid voice acting to it, melted its such a good story

(+1)

Thank you for playing!! I'm glad you had fun streaming it/enjoyed the story!

Hi. I tried emailing you, but I don’t know if it went through, and if it did if it got into the spam folder. So I’m just going to comment here too.

Hi. I made Android versions of Butterfly Soup (1+2), and two small games by a milkkylemon. I’ve been asked to make Android versions of your Just Kiss * Already. Would you like that?

Hi! Just responded to the email now, it was caught by the spam filter, so thank you for the comment to let me know!

I THOUGHT IT WAS BAKUGO AND DEKU FOR A SEC WHEN I SAW THIS- time to download it

(-1)

Very cute game artstyle cute story great still dont know the player's gender tho 

(+2)(-1)

That's probably the whole poit of the player design

So cute!

I played the other game first, and it was surprisingly endearing playing this one in the reverse cronological order. Getting to know these characters better, but in the past.

(+1)(-1)

Just finished it in one go this is soo cute really.  The background blend perfectly with the characters design. That's an impressiveee job

One thing tho I'd say that the protagonist's answers seems too flat most of the times. That'll be great if they was some sort of inside jokes between the charac to choose or something like that.

Looking forward the kiss scene~ (I already imagine them in a sort of Japanese festival date with some fireworks bg and everything lol)

(-1)

100000/10 ITS AWESOMEEE

(1 edit) (-1)

SAD bc i lowkey wanted Hayden but 10/10 I LOVE THISSSS <3

(1 edit) (-1)

Very cute and a nice story, but kind of lost it at the end since the confession scene was a bit anticlimactic. But hopefully an update would make it better. Just my opinion, but it'd be nice for them to confess to each other just the two of them and Nanala and the Player watch from afar.

(+1)(-1)

Ooooo I just played through this in one sitting – beyond cute, very funny and well written. Hope Hayden and Arley are going strong!

Thank you very much! In my mind they are LOL ( 2gether 4ever)

(+1)(-1)

Hey,cant you made a mod in Android ?

(Sorry for the mistake, im french and I don't speak the language very well)

(+2)

First off, absolutely loved the game!! It's so cute omg
It also really reminded me of this song, it just fits so well 

(+1)

Thank you very much!! I've been shown this song a couple of times now LOL it fits so well........vibes perfect

Awesome song! It totally fits the vibe haha, thank you for posting it!

(+2)(-1)

Aaah, thank you! I'm very flattered you'd make an account just to say this!! ♥♥♥

(+2)(-1)

Thank you very much!!

(+1)

This is so adorable and wholesome.

(+1)

Thank you again for playing! I'm glad you're enjoying my games!! ;0;

(1 edit) (+5)(-1)

i am DYING. The art, the dialogue, customization, everything, UGH! I may or may not have gone the gardening route, but I just love Arley's character! (and gardening!) It's my new favorite game. Can't wait to play JKHA2!!

Overall:

Amazing Game. 10/10.
