hey I recently got this game on my Iphone but I can't seem to progress to 2nd year. Is it a bug?

Hello! Thank you for your support and checking out our game :)

The year 2 button was intentional upon the game launch back in April 2020. Since the game is a monthly serialization - similar to shoujo manga format - we didn't have a clear timeline of when the storyline would end so we had a placeholder for the 2nd year for potential future content.

At this time, you should be able to see Chapter 0 through Chapter 8 on your iphone, accessible via Year 1. In the next update (sometime this week), Chapter 9 will be released and we will actually be removing the 2nd year placeholder as Ch 9 will have romantic routes locked down.

Hope that helps :)



oh i'm so sorry I didn't notice. Keep up the good work you guys . You guys rock.

Ahh! Don't be sorry! It's an excellent question and we really appreciate your interest and support 💖


What's the point of posting this on itch.io if you can't have the game on itch.io?...  🤔

The original intention was to have the game demo available when the itch.io page was made. The game ended up being redeveloped and it wouldn’t work as an embedded downloadable. But we wanted to keep the profile with all the game and character info. However, the game is still an on-going story and we would like to port it one day to non-mobile platforms once completed!


How can you get the game on itch.io?

I'm not interested to buy a mobile thing.

Unfortunately the way the game was developed is causing issues to get it embedded as a downloadable. However, the game is still an on-going story and we would like to port it one day to non-mobile platforms once completed!
