A not-so-generic otome game with BL possibilities.  

 Instead of playing the heroine and choosing between several men that have typical dating-sim personalities, you play as the childhood friend. That's right! The route that's usually the easiest to complete is no longer available.  You (Geum Park) are thrust into the world of a reverse harem, where your precious childhood friend (Emily Carter) is being hit on by two of your classmates (Ao Yazawa and Hong Yang Chan). You can choose to either play the role of a love interest and try to win the heroine's heart, or... you can play your own game and try to make the two boys fall for you instead! The choice is yours!

Note: The game takes place in Australia, so there are times when the characters may say things that seem a little odd to people not familiar with Aussie culture. 

This is currently just a demo, work on the full game is still in production.

Demo Features:
- A spin on your everyday otome game
- BxB and BxG routes to play
- Three romanceable characters (2 male 1 female)
- Approx. 3500 w for the demo (~20% of the full game)
- Animated chibis and transitions
- Unfinished backgrounds

Goals for the Final Game:
- Aiming for a December 2019 release
- 17k+ words 20k+ words
- Mini Games 
- 15+ CG scenes
- At least 5 different endings
- Secondary outfits for sprites
- Original music and SFX

Looking forward to this game!

ahh i just went through the demo and it's so charming and cute. im really looking forward to this!

Thank you!! =D

I'm gonna stalk this now. No escape.

HEYYYYY Welcome back Pace!!!!! Haven't seen you online in ages.
Haha, yes, stalk as much as you like =]

I want this so much. Mostly cause I'm so going to woe Ao as Geum. =P

I support your endeavour =D

Why thank yous. I do love my grumpy, bad boys with gold hearts. Plus I find it hilarious how Geum reacts in the demo to getting a text back from Ao. This could be such a good game. Like him slowly realizing he actually has fallen for the guys, then panics over possibly hurting MC by wanting to steal one, etc. I could see guilt and Geum coming out to MC with his newly discovered love problems. xD But that's just in my head. Please don't let me worry you with expectations. You do you. I'm hoping you continue this. =D


Haha, that is an interesting route to take.  I'll just say that there are a few different ways the game can possibly end. 
And fear not! This game will be completed even if it takes me longer than intended!! =]
The kickstarter campaign will be launching at the end of the month so hopefully that speeds things along. 

I'll definitely keep my eye out for that. =)

This is really cool! Can't wait to see it finished ^w^

Thank you! 

No problem!

oH MY God! That really reminds me of otome version of kusoge! It was so refreshing to see protagonist as one of the love interest . Interactions between characters are hilarious, I died at the line "I wanted to see how the scene end" XD 

This looks really promising! I am eagerly waiting for december <3


Oh man! I only discovered Kusoge recently and although it wasn't intentionally one of my inspirations, it might have subconsciously been one. 

Thank you for your kind words and I hope you enjoy what is to come. 


The demo was funny and fun! I like that the protagonist is so aware of common otome tropes, yet so lacking in self-awareness regarding his own feelings. After the "homemade lunches for a week" line, I found myself wanting to solve the problem by pairing Ao with Hong Yang instead (fingers crossed for them getting together if Emily chooses Geum).


Thank you so much. I'm glad you like it. Haha. Yes, I have a whole side story planned for Ao and Hong Yang which players could discover if they make the right choices in the game. 

I hope you enjoy what is to come. 

Love the demo so far! Can't wait for the next update

Thank you!!

The demo was small but it got me hooked and I think it was great.

Thank you =D

This is such a fun idea. Having played enough generic otome in my time it's great to see all the conventions getting turned on their head, even down to the guys' looks!

Thank you!
I'm glad to hear you think so =D
