I just saw the files again when I checked earlier and decided to play it again xD this was the 2nd Philippines settings I played. I enjoy it and it was cute, hehe I laugh and giggle tons of time pfft >v< they were so adorable ^-^ James might be childish sometimes but he's adorable especially when he's shy and  blushing. Just give him a little push~ I like the dialogue he said in his good ending <3 I also like Arvin, he was sporty and sociable,  he's fun to be around with. He is also caring and supportive, He has his own circumstances but he's there if you need a help, he'll be your knight and shining armor if someone bully you. I like that he was sort of forward and his pick up lines hahaha >3< I love his ending, it was sweet and uck xD I hope I also had a kuya huhu. There's also Mark. I also felt sad about the past the player did :'< and how great the impact is for him :< lastly, Vaughn. When he was giving advice to the player, although some is cheesy, it's pretty touchy and sweet. There's also a bestie, who's adorable named Luzviminda. She's willing to give up just for you. She and James look adorable xD I like how Ran portraits them <3

This reminds me of my childhood, ah nolgastic

oh, and just notice there's a wrong spelling during the scene where the player just woke up after meeting up the bois but *thumbs up*

This reminds me of the VN I played in steam years ago xD

Edit: No wonder, they both had same creators xD I love the halloween and the christmas theme. What I love the most among them is the dialogues.

Good Work

Thank you JuNCurryAhn! 💕

Yes! 😁 They're pretty much the same, but the new one has all-original art and a few story tweaks. Thank you for downloading!

I think I played a way way different version of this, but I look super forward to playing this one. I absolutely loved the story for the original let's see what makes this one different. ^^

Haha, yes! This is the original game and it used free resources for the art. :) They're basically the same, save for a few story tweaks and the new art.

i liked how the dialogue changed with the choices, and how original each ending was. this game is like a 10 out of 10 for sure.
