THIS IS SO GAY! I LOVE IT!
This game's writing is so realistic it's scary
I love it
is there gonna be a part 2?
I just played through it for the first time. I have to say that I really like it. The relationship between the main characters is just awesome and I really like the character designs. The humor is also really good. Diya beeing this huge and buff but really shy girl and Min being tiny but very agressive is something that melted my heart.
I wish I would be talented enough to do fanart, because I would draw the shit out of those characters 24/7.
I'M NOT CRYING *sniff* YOU'RE CRYING >:'C
I swear that at home all my family was looking at me like if I was crazy while reading this. OMG so hilarious, and yet so mature. Thanks for your work.

I loved this vn. Thank you so much for it <3
i loved this game so much and am so happy i founed it it was so much fun playing it and i hope a part 2 gets made

just played this game again lol, i guess its becoming a monthly thing replaying this. i really do love the characters and its so hilarious. i loved how we switched perspectives and the art is SO good. i wouldn't be surprised if this game was uploaded onto steam. i totally recommend this game 10/10
Awesome! So… fucking… funny. Love the characters! It’s a bit too linear and short, though. I didn’t feel the choices mattered much. But I am nitpicking, I think. It's definitely a must play.
I think it is more of an story with interactive elements than a game, and as such you can’t compare it to normal games.
True, and I have nothing against that. However, stories like that should advertise themselves as what they are and not try to pass themselves as anything else.
Again, thoroughly enjoyed it and I recommend it, but I wouldn't call it a game. It's more like a comicbook, almost.
These are like legit my favorite characters to draw.
My itch page for the android (and later web) version was taken down, however, in cooperation with ms. Lei herself we have created a new page: https://brianna-lei.itch.io/butterflysoupports
I am also still looking for translators: https://github.com/hackerncoder/butterfly-soup_translations
This game is wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.
I played this game back in like 2017 or 2018, and I absolutely fell in love with it. But I also was fairly immature at that time, so a lot of the messages and themes the game portrayed were lost on me.
I came back to the game recently after 2020 threw my family and I through a spin. Not going too far into it, my home life is pretty shitty, but more importantly I went through an identity crisis. I wasn't quite sure who I was anymore, or if I truly liked myself.
Butterfly Soup helped me come to terms with myself. It would be a stretch to say that it was the sole reason of how I accepted my identity, but it helped immensely.
I can now be proud to say that I am a trans lesbian. And that I no longer hate myself.
To Brianna Lei, thank you for everything.
loved the game! I made an account to write this!
The plot was amazing, I am in love with all the characters, I love the story! There were lots of parts in each story I laughed at. I love this game! It has diversity, LGBTQ+ representation, Humor, Development, Perspective.. The art was amazing as well!
I love this game and I can't wait see more games from you :))
highly recommend 10/10
loved the story, the art, the music, especially the characters! there was development, perspective, humour.... everything :))
i guess the only thing i was kinda looking forward to was NxA endgame but yeah i fell in love w this <3
I just finished playing that game and i just wanna say i totally love it.
I love the artstyle and the storyline very much not to mention that u had from every person from the friend group a perspective from things and from their past i totally recommend it 10 out of 10 :))
i made an acc just to say how much i love this. as a part of an asian family, this felt honestly realistic. this is literally one of the best i've played.
tho i was lowkey honestly anticipating for akarsha and noelle's relationship development sklfhsfd
perfect game to escape my homophobic family ;)
I have a quick question, how do you delete parts that you saved (where you press load game) It looks bad and I want to delete it. Can someone help?
I SWEAR I PANICKED WHEN THEY KISSED I WAS LIKE OMGGG YESS FINALLY BUT YH THIS WAS FUN TO PLAY
I think this is the best visual novel I have played, and not just because its gay.I loved the baseball team, their friendships, the memes, all of it. Made me cry at the end ಥ_ಥ
This was the first visual novel I read/play and I am very happy that it was also available in Farsi!
I played this in like September of 2019 with my friend, and it was amazing! I'm going yo re-play it again.
zsjmebgkjw<sahgkjb i love this game so much
id do anything for a part 2 i fell in love with this
Yuki (Grace) and Sakura (Sumia)!
This is truly one of the best games ever made. The writing is some of the best ever. The comedic writing probably IS the best ever. The characters, the pacing, it's all amazingly well done. If you haven't played this you just should stop whatever you're playing and play it now. It's incredible.
This game has been living in my head rent-free ever since I played it a couple months ago. It's just so charming, delightful, and relatable as heck, being a Chinese adoptee and gay. While I grew up in a predominantly white neighborhood, most of my friends were Asian, so this reminded me of my friend group in some ways that are really nostalgic too. I can't sing my praises enough and how much Butterfly Soup means to me -- thank you for making this beautiful gem!
Omg I fell completely in love with this game! It's so quite and the characters are so wonderfully quirky and lovable! Thanks for making this <3
Thank you, Sapphic! Great games bring people together!
That’s so cute
genuinely close to tears with how heartwarming the ending was~ 🖤
whenever I try and open the dmg this comes up:
any help on how to open it?
It seems the yearly 100$ fee to “notarize” (see the Jan 02 dev log “Mac version is now notarized for Catalina”) the app may not have been payed (or something else, it just coincides with the new year and is the same time Brianna sent out the dev log on this last year…).
in the Settings -> Security and then see on the buttom
I downloaded this a few months ago, and now I'm back to play it again lol. This is such a great game, and it made me laugh a lot. like, A LOT. I love all the characters and the story is really fun :)
