He's opened up an inter-dimensional portal and the other end of it is you, the player!

It's been a while since my last visual novel and after playing enough small, cute visual novels, I decided to try making my own. I wanted to test myself and see how a project with a far smaller scope'd fare.

Inspired by (But became a project absolutely not sticking to the guidelines of) the O2A2VN Jam! 

Currently a sort of weird WIP- 0.9 being the trimmed down (but complete) release, with plans to update and add a few more tidbits for a full 1.0 version.

I hope you enjoy it!

This was just so good. I love the art style so much. The story is so relatable, heck I've had those exact thoughts Sherb's had as well. Can't wait to see if there is more we will see of Sherb in the future!


Thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoyed it/that Sherbert was relatable!

I'm excited to get back to the project after I've finished up with JKHA/YaoiJam!


This was a really lovely game! I loved the gorgeous art, character designs and cute story. Sherb's dilemma was oddly relatable despite the fantasy setting :')

Thank you very much! I'm glad you could relate to him! ;0; <33



Thank you! <33

Awww this is so sweet, thank you so much for making this TT

Quick question just to check if that's okay, is the second intentional close signalling the end? Because when I go back in it just repeats that section. I wasn't sure if it was a bug that it wasn't going any further or if that was the end, also since I can't see where to start from the beginning again ":D


If the start button says "Revist"/you're greeted with a CG, that's the end!

After viewing the ending once, there should be a sleeping Sherbert on the title screen, you can click him to wipe the game!

Thank you for playing!

Ooh I see! Thanks for the clarification :)


This game is so cute! <33 

The conversations are indepth, interactions are just super cute all in all :)

Thank you for playing, I'm glad you liked it!! <33
