Along the way, he meets an eclectic cast of characters, and eventually must learn to juggle business with pleasure. Can he get the girl of his dreams?

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID...

"I won't lie, I was on the lookout for a f*ping game when I stumbled upon this VN ^^''. But, I found myself, 2 hour and half later, still playing, following the story, thinking thoroughly of each decision I was to make having the sake of the characters like prior thought. I find it formidable how it captivated me as quickly as it did( no expert but I liked the naration and the interactions). The music, which I found really pleasant just to listen even presently, as I write from the title screen, added to the quality of this great game althought, as already said, the moment of prolonged silence made me thinked my speekers were defectious ha ha. To finalize this critic/words of appreciation, call it as you may, I would like to thank you, BeerBrew and Sharkie from PaperWaifu Studio, you've made those 2 and a half hour very enjoyable and can't wait to see what's next. To the joy of seeing your futures release."

"The narrative is actually good. Is this real life?"

"Lots of potential and a great game. Such a nice and thoughtful story that really can touch a person. You even forget that this is an eroge in the process. Seriously this thing deserves to be greenlit. Anyway keep up the good work. Can't wait for the other girls and routes."

"Very nice demo, can't wait to see the next chapter!"

"I like long involved storylines and this one is certainly has the pagecount to qualify. :) Almost too long, as others have pointed out I was probably halfway through the game (demo,) and I was still seriously wondering why it had an "A" rating. I did find the storyline entertaining... who knew I could be interested in what makes a Ramen chef?"

Hey BeerBrew, I just wanted to let you know of a bug I found while playing Mie's route. Happens in chapter 4 after starting the back alley scene:



Tried reloading the save and restarting the game like it recommends to but unfortunately it still comes up like this so just wanted to let you know about it incase its not just limited to my computer (playing the windows 64bit version I got from your Patreon). Other than that I had no over problems so far and am very much loving this game and can't wait for when the other routes come out to see what other fantastic stuff becomes available.  :)        

Think at the moment Tomone's route is definitely my favourite, love her so much!
Though when Ren pulls this face...



I am unsure if that is the look I'll see in my dreams or haunting my nightmares, laughed so hard when she she did it! It was amazing, can't wait for a possible Ren route.  :D

Hey bro! Thanks for letting us know about this! Yeah, I looked at it and it seems I forgot to update stuff to replace the old scene with the new one. Good catch! Will update all the demo builds later so you guys can enjoy this particular scene ;) ;)

@Ren - All I can give you now is this face...  ; ) cuz when I ask Sharkie about it, he give me this :B lol

Thanks for playing the game and hope you continue to enjoy our stuff ;)

Game has been updated!

Hey everyone!

It's BeerBrew and... I haven't had much sleep yet. Just wanted to say that thanks to @dickmcscrotes 's bug complaint over at NewGrounds, we were able to finally catch the elusive loading-related bug that's been haunting the game for several weeks now. The online version of the game should be stable now especially when loading up save game files. With this bug, the game can randomly hang so speak. It rarely appears in our dev platform, and shite always hits the fan when we make it available as a web version. We will update the other builds later.

Can you guys give it a spin and see if anyone encounters any game-stopping errors like blackscreen hang, or any sort of hang or crash? Try progressing through a couple of routes, loading a couple of save games... And do use Google Chrome or Firefox (Firefox tends to complain more, so any hangs here will be useful to take note of.)

And the game's been updated to v0.3.5 if you've noticed ;)

Guys! Update incoming! We're looking at within the next few days, maybe within the week ;)

Best 1 hour I've spent on a visual novel.

And thanks for playing ;). We haven't promoted this page yet, and we're glad that despite that, it's being found, played, and enjoyed!
