This is actually such a cute and enjoyable game! I really enjoyed all the characters and found it very relatable! THIS DESERVES MORE LOVE!


I usually can't even read visual novels because I find them boring. This was THE BEST one I've ever seen, it made me laugh so much, it made me cry, it had it all. Thank you so much for this, I needed it.


This was, honestly, one of the best games I have ever played. The characters all felt so real and relatable, and I fell in love with them all so quickly! The only thing more I could ask for would possibly be a second game with more Chryssa and her ridiculous puns. Seriously though, thank you, this was amazing! 

i loved it so much! i hate most of the parents because they are jerks but it was amazing!!!


This game made me cry. Many times. Thank you, sincerely, Brianna Lei, for making a game that I, as well as so many others. could connect to and love. Baseball and girls are two of my very favorite things. And it was insane how much I could relate to Diya and Min (my girlfriend and I are on the same team, she pitches and I catch. We're honestly like Diya and Min but if their personalities were swapped haha). I fell in love as soon as I saw the gun that fired out a gun that shot a knife honestly. But for anyone trying to figure out if they want to play this game or not: play it. It tells an incredibly well planned story about Asian-American gay girls in high school, trying to find their way and love themselves in a very lighthearted way. The characters are all lovable and every line of dialogue gives off so much personality and are in no way out of place. The art is simply amazing and the backgrounds are to die for. This is a cute, short heartwarming game to play if you are ever looking for a pick me up, or some laughs.

An amazing game; The art is fantastic, the message is cute, the humor is on-point and up to date;  And Noelle is the best. It really warms my, cold, dead heart. Finally some romance I can relate to!!  10/10 will recommend to ALL my friends. 



Good game but my friend is upset that there isn't literal butterfly soup.

I've forgotten what friendship means for a long time . . . . until I played Butterfly Soup. It's so heartwarming!!! 

The story of hanging out with friends, really brings back memories of my high school times. Well done!



thats an understatement


This was by far the most heartwarming roller coaster of emotions that I've have the wonderful pleasure of playing, the memes are great, the gayness was great and the music, writhing, sound fx, oh my gosh if you're reading this and you haven't got the game yet, do it!!!!!!!!!!Parrot


Amazing heartwarming experience! I resonated with a lot of the characters more than I expected. I'm so grateful you made this, thank you!


Ilove this game, thanks for making it and existing and being a wonderful person!


months ago i promised myself i'd re-download this a second time when i was finally able to pay for it. this is the most incredible, funny, heartwarming game that i have lost hours in and i love it. thank you so much for these gays!

(1 edit)

This Game mean so much to me, especially Diya cuz I'm quiet like her. This game actually kind of helped me move out of it. And I cant even say how cute it was! Thanks! This game is honesty the best thing in the world.

- Also it would be cool to see how Min/Diya's parents reacted to their relationship


This game is fucking amazing, for one, and for two, the bonus art PDF has made me realize that "Everything Everything" is dope. Thanks so much for the one, and also for the two!

Also, yesterday I nearly asked my coworker if he would eat a tiny man for a million dollars, because I share Akarsha's passion for True Comedy B3

Can I like,,, marry these girls?

Akarsha is my true love. Also, Chryssa and her puns? <33333


I cannot describe how much this game meant to me. Each character resonated with me in so many different ways it's scary. Perfectly sums up the Asian experience (and especially the Asian queer one). Thank you so so much. I love this so much. <3

Hey girl, rat piss.

Oh man I love this! This vn has great artwork, great characters, great story, great ending, real issues, real feelings, and most of all;  REAL LOVE! 12/10! I loved every joke (me being the meme/otaku that I am and I even teared up a little(that's saying something!). I look forward to any projects in the future you work on, as they will surely be a success! 



Please let Butterfly Soup be available for Chrome OS!!! My friends and I have Chromebooks and we really want to play it, but it's pretty much impossible. If anyone knows a way that it can be downloadable on Chrome OS, please let me know.

i'm crying i??? love this game so much??? Akarsha is officially my new wifeu and I almost cried twice 11/10 


I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!! Each of the character's were so well written and I ended up falling in love with all of them.  The ending was perfect! This game fed into my weird sense of humor and I love it. I hope the creator comes out with another game similar to this soon.


Great game. Funny, heartwarming and charming. Lovely storytelling with a satisfying ending. Can't wait to see what you do next!

its not wroking. it wont let me play ;-;


I feel like this game is getting too much praise. It isn't "the best game I've ever played". But it's alright.


Honestly my favorite game probably ever. The characters are well thought out, well developed, and relatable. The art is dazzling, the story is moving and beautiful, the gay is just right, and the memes are crispy. My only problem with it is that I am unable to play because I have a Chromebook. But other than that, I loved it! What more could someone ask for in a visual novel?


 I have some strong opinions about Noelle


I just finished the game and honestly I relate to all of them so much because being in an Asian household, honestly? The things shown throughout the game are so damn accurate. Teared up a few times and I just... I love it.


if u wuv et sow mucheh y noteh maree et ( ‾ ʖ̫ ‾)


Beautiful game and the memes made it even better


Really loved this. Funny and touching and relatable. Teared up a bit in a couple spots. Thanks!


Hi!! I just wanted to say how beautiful this game is and how the humor is just 11/10 it made me laugh n smile so much! And although 10 bucks isnt rlly much i hope it helps in a little way :'') im a broke kid but this is an amazing and beautifully crafted game!!

(1 edit) (+2)

So I found this game some days ago and played it actually.. 3 or 4 times? it's just so beautiful .. every time when I finish the game I miss it ;-; it also changed my view of life a little bit. thanky you for creating auch a beautiful thing! I laughed and cried so muuuuuch 

I want more of Diya and Min..;-; and I wanna see what's gonna happen to Akarsha and Noelle!

Yeah, I just played the game yesterday. And I totally shipped Akarsha and Noelle. I also get what you mean by it changed your view on life and how you miss it when it's over. I hope there is more to this amazing story!


i just finished this, and i'm already missing the characters. this was really enjoyable. i hope you do a sequel in the future.


for whatever amount of time i spent playing this game, i felt like everything in life was gonna be okay. thank you so much for making this

I loved the story, and the characters. All their problems are so genuine, and so are their interactions with eachother.

One thing I do want to point out is that while it's an amazing story, the choices didn't seem to add too much. Much of the time the choices seemed not to matter at all, or if one didn't choose one they'd miss out on some story subtlety, as seen at Akarsha checking herself out in the window.

Still love it; easily one of the best things I've ever read/played/experienced.


Amazing game! Loved every moment of it! Keep up the good work!


p.s. i love this game. want more. thank you. i'll die if i dont get more.



we dont get what we always want. I wanted them to uhhh...( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

This game is seriously the best!!! My friend recommended it to me and I've played it over and over again. It made me laugh, cry, and just get all happy. It warmed my heart and I'm in love with the characters. I hope to get more content from the creators! We need more!! 
Y'all did an amazing job, overall.
