Hey folks!

The first release of Summer In Springtime is here! This is a new short game from us that's been in the works for a couple of months now.

You play as Ichigo, a college junior in his third year. He's focusing on his upcoming career in the promising field of sports therapy, and out of the blue, his childhood friend returns to his life! But he's already got a beautiful girlfriend, and a really hot ex-teacher to deal with! How will their paths cross?

- This is a free, short game.

- The new original character artwork is now in!

- Multi-art style support. Old art is in!

- Game is still a work in progress! 

- Features a wide variety of decision paths. 

- There are more than a dozen different endings to be found here

- 21 of 22 special scenes are in!

While we initially plan on keeping the game as a short, the game's development is still in progress, and there's a ton of room for expanding the game and the story after v1.0.

Let us know what you think! If you have comments, suggestions, bug reports, let us know!

is there a cheat code to get whole gallery i would like to see all the scenes thx

Hello. i'm playing this on android. How do i turn on the top ingame menu? Because it often disappear and i can't save my game without it.

I finally got the good ending! The one that was Summer, Ise, and Minako.

I download it but it showing blck screen pls help me im on android

Hello! do the other versions work for you? What phone model and android os are you on?

How do I swap between the old and new styles of artwork?

Hello! Use the secret code oldieartxxx

So I'm trying to play this, but after I click new game, it just shows a black screen. Any way to fix this?

Hello! Can you hit F12 or go to your browser's console and see if any error comes up?

no errors

Humm. That sounds weird. Can you try it on another site and newgrounds? Error might show up there?

Hi! I love the game so much, and you guys are awesome for putting so much work into this. Just wondering, but my screen just goes black and stays that way after the introduction of the teacher. Is it supposed to do that? 

Hello! Thank you :)

After the scene with her, there's a slightly longer load time to the next scene. It should advance to the next scene. If you still see it's a black screen, can you press F12 or open up the browser's console and see if there are any error messages? If so, copy and paste it here?

Thank you! it's working now, I guess I just didn't have the attention span or something lmao

why u guys change the images of the girls? Miss the old one..pls bring back the old images pls. Btw love the game

it's not working here and i can't seem to install it on my android phone

Hello! Are you on your phone trying to play this on your browser? You'll most likely need to switch to the Desktop version of the page. I've just uploaded the APK so you guys can download it from here rather than mega :)

Hi, how long until we can download a newer version of this game?

Hello! Soon-ish! Around 75% through the special scenes. Maybe in a week or two!

why no new scenes ! its been quite a  long time now

Hello! Thanks for asking :) The game is getting a remake of all character artworks. If you look at our patreon page, we've been laser focused at getting the special scenes prepped up for animation. We're probably looking at getting these preparation work done in 2-3 weeks? Might be earlier than that. After which, we'll animate the scenes, and up them into the game. The new character avatars are already in the game, so it's just a matter of the special scenes.

Hello! That sounds interesting! But are you sure? You better think about it first. The last couple of times we tried helping some other interested people get started with this sort of thing were failures (they backed out/shied away/never heard from again...). Just to give you an idea, there are over 30,000 dialog lines of varying length in the game and we're not even done yet!

You can give it a try first and if you're not deterred by the sheer number, let us know again and let's see what we can do to help!

Oh wait, you mean Summer in Springtime. Yeah this one's shorter. I think it's easier to translate :). Hold on, let me prep things up for you.

Broken links? Which builds were you trying to download?

What are the special scenes?I'm too lazy to play the game again trying to find them😅

lol! Hard to describe. One is for the path where you run after her. And the other is near the start.

Hi, I found this game and just made an account so I could sort out how to play it on Linux Mint.

I have the .tar.gz downloaded but not sure what to do next in order to play/install it. If someone could please help/give me directions. Really itching to check this game out. Sorry if this questions is redundant, I've searched online and the forum here and haven't found a tutorial/info on how to install on Linux. Thank you for your time.

Hello! Let's see. Try running the file nwrun.sh when you upack the tar.gz file.

Use bash or some other console to execute the script file (which runs the file called 'nw')

Hey! Thank you very much! So I double-clicked 'nw', which the computer didn't know what to do with, and it said it was an unknown file type and I chose the option to 'make executable and run' and the game started! 

Thanks, can't wait to check it out :D

Cool! Thanks for letting us know it's as easy as that! We haven't been able to test this on Linux and some Ubuntu users have a problem trying to run it off their desktop screens

Great!  Glad others will be able to run it as well. 

This was a great game, I got at least every ending within 3 hours and found the two ero scenes within the current version v0.1.5 I hope there's more stuff added into this game in future. I'd love to donate to help out the creators and artists.

Thanks! <3 and nice one bro! Someone told me they played through it dozens of times already and still couldn't find it. It's like an easter egg right now.

maybe add a gay option? there are so many girl/boy games like this but not many with the option for LGBT boy/boy or even girl/girl

Hello! We'll look at this later :) I'm a little pooped adding this extra stuff to Ramen no Oujisama cuz of the long script work. So if you want to see what the other gender-bending options there are, it'll be in the other game's next release :)

That transparency... enjoy the gameplay video!

Not what we thought this was gonna be but we got the good ending so it all worked out!

It would be nice if you were able to change the main character's gender to make it lesbian friendly. Also, some advice.... I only played Minako's route because I was really uninterested in playing through this game again, but I thought I should at least finish one route before being so critical. It still didn't change my mind. Even if I'm supposed to believe the main character is a solid 10/10 stud, the fact that female characters are just throwing themselves at him is very offputting. Normally in games like this, there's a little more work involved, and I hope you give the girls more personality. Right now they just seem....like hired prostitutes. Sorry if this seems a bit harsh, but I thought it would be good to tell you, considering this game will mostly attract middle aged men who like hentai instead of people who like a good romance game. I hope you take this into consideration. I'm not saying the game should be less sexual, but currently that's all it is. The story barely exists. The game is just about fucking big breasted anime templates with no other redeeming qualities. Maybe if Summer seemed a little more like a childhood friend that likes you romantically instead of a slut hungry for whatever dick she sees first, it would be a little more meaningful. This ended up being more of a rant, than a review, but I hope it was helpful at least slightly. I'll end it here.~

Hello! Thanks for leaving your thoughts about the game!

It's really designed to be short and have a ton of special scenes, in contrast to our other game The Ramen Prince, which aims to balance being story-rich, and having enough of the action stuff. If there's going to be more of a story to this game, we'll most likely know what to do when we reach v1.0 as it's designed to be expandable. We'll see if our patrons want to see more of this ;)

You may want to look at The Ramen Prince for now, while this one is still a short.

@Lesbian friendly huh? I didn't think about that, but maybe it's something to consider!

If you have thoughts about the lesbian friendly feature, you can leave them here or in this post:

Thanks for bringing it up by the way! I don't know if this is all possible, but it's something to explore.

I commented on the patreon page. Thanks for considering my suggestion <3

Yep I saw :) Replied there, too! I'm about done with adding in the extra options in the game :)
