It's cute and amazing though I am ticked off by the mother character a lot I just valiantly ignore her and just focus on the MC and Clara, which is hilarious to see the chaos unfolding~~

this game was super cute! the art was very nice and the voice acting was also very good! hopefully more will be added someday cause i really enjoyed it and would love to see where the story goes!

(+1)

It's really wholesome, I like the design too. I'm hoping to see more of these in the future :)

Thank you for creating this game! I'm looking forward on what happens next! I'll keep an eye out for future updates! And I apologize to Wouter if I didn't pronounce the name right at the start x( you and the team are awesome tho!

Made a quick gameplay for anyone interested:

Haha your pronunciation was pretty close! :D Thanks a ton for sharing your experience. Fun Megaman edit too! "You don't really have plans do you?" "ANIME!" That cracked me up :P

I admit to making a lot of retakes and google! xD Glad it was pretty close at best! I wasn't able to find the exact fonts so it look kinda messed up in some parts :< 

And thanks for checking the video out! Yay!

I can't download the game for some reason. Popups aren't blocked, and nothing happens when I hit download. It just says "waiting forwoutervanvugt.itch.io...."

Oh that is indeed unfortunate! It might be an anti-virus flagging it as a false postive, or something to do with your browser... May I ask which browser you use? In the meantime, here is an alternate download location :)

I use Chrome, usually when it flags something it tells me, so its really weird. Thank you for the alt link, although its saying "We're sorry. You can't access this item because it is in violation of our Terms of Service"

Oh man, this is really quite the pickle. That is caused by Google Drive not allowing you to share zipped .EXE files... We'll look into this!

(+1)

Hopefully when/if it's fixed, I'd love to play!

more more more please ; w; so cute i wanna see what happens next!

Really cute short VN with some minigames, the choice making is so much fun as well as the fights with the blood, the art is really cute and well done and the voice acting is on point for both characters.

It is quite short (totally understandable for the time window of the develpment) but it is really a solid work, good job!

Thanks a bunch for your review and playthrough! Glad to hear you enjoyed it!

I already love it.

It's short, but it's super cute! The pixel art is adorable and the voice acting fits perfectly! You guys did a great job! I really enjoyed it, especially the mini games :)

But is it just me or is the voice from MC a little bit quieter than everyone elses?

Still, I hope to see more in the future! <3

(+1)

Thanks for your kind words! The volume levels should have indeed been balanced better, but as the voice acting was a very last minute addition we simply didn't have the time :)

(+2)

this looks so cute, hopefully there's a mac version in the future (:

(+2)

very short but good :) well done :) will it continue further?

(+1)

We have not decided yet, so stay tuned! :D

(+1)

sure ! :)

this game was so cute! i really enjoyed it:]] 

That is great to hear! Thanks for sharing! <3

That was an adorable delight! The Battle Network aspect had me HOOKED I wish there was and will be more of it as mini games to progress the story.

Well done :) Here's my gameplay for all to explore. Enjoy!

(+2)

Thank you so much for playing our game! Glad you're enjoying it.
Hopefully we can add more minigames and story soon~ :D

(+3)

I liked this a lot. The mega man battle network stuff was a nice surprise, and the art is really pleasing. Hope to see more~

That is great to hear! Might just motivate us enough to make more ;)

I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.

Is there a way to skip the intro/story up front? The blood cell battle up so suddenly I forgot where those keys are :P

The story is nice so far, and especially the artwork!

Not yet, but after the voting period ends we can add features like checkpoints or save files :D
