A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Celine (name changeable) is a college student whose parents had recently lost their jobs. She lost her scholarship after failing to keep up her grades due to her family problems, and on top of that, she even got kicked out of the dormitory after being unable to pay the monthly rent. With nowhere to go, she seeks the help of her best friend, Lyle, who refers her to a family friend who accepts boarders in their house. But the said house already has occupants, cousins Joshua and Philippe, who seem to find something to fight about in every little thing. Caught in the middle of a fierce rivalry, how will Celine manage to get through this stage in her life?

Celine sure is splendid independent characters that rarely come in vn. No matter if it's Joshua's or Phillipe's route, the interaction feels real and cute (especially how the siblings war ends) x3

Hello, I really love this game! I find the art style adorable and the story to be very charming. I have only played Philippe's route because I am having trouble getting to Joshua's route. I think I've tried most of the combinations I'd like to know what I can do to get Joshua's route because I am interested in playing his route too. 

Here's the blog entry where I featured your game ;)

Cheers!

The art is so gorgeous and adorable , I wish the game was longer but only because I enjoyed it. The story is simplistic but fits, and its sooo cute and heartwarming. I really loved both guys, but Josh had to be my favorite.

Lovely game so far so good, but the color of the text is really hard to read. Had to stop because my eyes were hurting. The plot is really good, lighthearted and heartwarming. Hopefully font color can be tweaked :)

I enjoyed playing this! Love all the characters. The only thing I didn't like about it so far is a very minor thing the color of the text. At least for me I don't know if it did this for anyone else but the colors were very neon and hard to read sometimes because of it but besides that it is an awesome game!
