i first played Butterfly Soup around 4 years ago, still very much in early highschool, and now it is accompanying me as i finish my first year of uni! 🥳

I vividly remember the delight I felt when I played it for the first time! It was so funny, and so heartfelt! This experience - looking at the characters and whole-heartedly understanding them; being able to see my friends, my family, and myself within the characters, truly marked an epoch in my personal growth.  Especially since I live in a country that is predominantly Caucasian, this game felt so novel, so specifically aimed at me. 

So I really want to say thank you! Butterfly soup has brought me immense comfort over the years, and I certainly wouldn't be the same without it! I noticed that I had accumulated a lot of hours and wanted to commemorate it with a screenshot ^u^ It has carried me through many, many harrowing exams and assignments, and i extend my thanks not just as a queer asian but a queer asian in academic hell. 


This comment is getting awfully long, so maybe I'll just say it one more time: thank you so, so much! To continue Diya and Min's tradition, that's「 本当にありがとう!」in my other language :-)

Wishing you lots of happiness and best wishes!

I liked this game so much that I'm forcing my best friend to play it, as she is forcing me to write this comment. Well I was forcing her to play it earlier, but I mentioned I thought about writing a comment but didn't, so she made me. Anyway, I got goosebumps 2 times playing through this. I really related to Diya and Min, but the entire cast is great ^^

PLAY THE GAME IT, IS SO GOOD

(+1)

This story was beautiful!! Keeps bringing tears to my eyes ;w;

(+3)

mano, mano, mano, o que falar desse jogo?, serio ele é espetacular, tu aí br que ta em duvida de jogar só vai, ainda mais se esta em busca de dar boas risadas, me diverti bastante jogando e irei até acompanhar proximos lançamentos da criadora. Jogo realmente incrivel, eu tava com uma leve expectativa mas até que superou ela kkkkkkkk, as personagens são super bem desenvolvidas, e tu consegue ver com clareza que o jogo foi feito com bastante carinho, alem de ter em port né, é muito facil vc conseguir simpatizar com elas e alguns dos demais personagens secundarios. Sem duvida recomendo! pode baixar aí cara, da uma chance vai que tu goste.

i really love this game so far.. nice humor and gay girls, what do ya want more :p

(+1)

I enjoyed this game very much!! Love Akarsha's humor and Noelle's comebacks most especially. 1000/10

(+1)

This is so good and funny. Even though I am not a fan of visual novel that only have a bit choices that you'll make, it is still enjoyable. I enjoyed reading it and literally laughing my ass off. I haven't yet finished it 'cause I remember I haven't eaten anything yet. Hope there's more from you though(I'm a fan of GL so this is a treat) and hope it is free(I have no money lmao >.<)

(+1)

I seriously got excited when Diya hinted she might be demi, but then I was dissapointed it wasn't explored any further in the game.  Overall I really enjoyed it and I look forward to the sequel (and I hope the sequel gives us confirmation in-game that Diya is demi.)

(+1)

this game is amazing

能荣幸能玩到这款游戏!!!太太太太美好啦!!!!!

Wow! This is a really cool job! I am very inspired by this game! Author, if you have a wish, I could help you with the translation of the novel into Russian or Ukrainian for free. I am sure it will not be difficult for me, since I am a native speaker of these languages. If you are interested, write to me at airyng842@gmail.com

Hi! Brianna unfortunately does not accept new translations at the moment. We don’t know if she will in the future.

However, you can still translate Butterfly Soup on our weblate, you can find a link to it and our discord on our website: https://queerscriptors.org. Your translation won’t be added to the official Butterfly Soup here on this itch page, but we will publish it, just like we did with our french translation: https://hackerncoder.itch.io/butterfly-soup-queerscriptors-translations. And if Brianna ever starts accepting translations again, we’ll contact her and get translations made through us added.

And we hope you will stick around and translate other games in the future (cough cough)

i found this game so long ago but i still love it to this day!!

it made me realize i was a part of the lgbtq community <3

thank you so much for this masterpiece.

(+1)

Five out of five stars. This game is so cute and heartwarming! It reminds me of my own group of friends and their struggles, especially family issues. The main part I love about this game is how it revolves around a bunch of Asian girls because I'm Vietnamese myself, and I've noticed there's not many games like this one. Diya is chill and caring - also very humble about her athletic talents. Min is awesome with Diya and I understand why she's so violent. Akarsha is my favorite because I relate most to her and her humor. Noelle is just a misunderstood angel. I love the ending where they're all together and when the game fast forwards to the future.

(+1)

i love this game oh my goodness htank you thank you thank you for making this crying screaming such an adorbale little game thnak you

(+2)

THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING GAME EVER IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE SOMONE UNDERSTANDS ME

This is as relatable as a game gets!

(+2)

At first I didn’t think I’d like this game because I thought it looked pretty boring. And then Akarsha came in. The fight between her and Min was the best part (to the people who’ve played this visual novel, don’t spoil ANYTHING) . I loved how each person had their own individual problems, and their own personality traits. Great game, definitely recommend.

(+1)

Yeah, that fighting technique was very unique . . . 

(+3)

i love this. thank you

Hidden masterpiece.

(+1)

this is the best visual novel i have ever played and i have been obsessed with it for like 4 years

(+1)

This game is SO AMAZING

So true.

(+3)

For the first few minutes of my gameplay, I was kind of bored with it. I decided to put it away for a while and come back, thank god I did cause I was laughing so much! I was really happy when Ace of Diamond and Ace Attorney were mentioned and gosh this game didn't have to be that relatable. My emotions shift from laughing my ass off to dying inside every time. I got so attached to Akarsha and young Min so much. I really loved this game! I was absolutely amazed when they started explaining about the Butterfly Soup, a great game cause the creator agrees that Ace Attorney is hella gay.

(+2)

Akarsha is basically who everyone wants to be!

(+1)

I know right? 

I love this game so much (: 

i absolutely love this game. i relate 2 the characters, the writings amazing. 100/10. ill probably play this again.

i think my fav character has 2 bc diya, she reminds me a lot of my best friend. min is 2nd place fav tho

bye now

(+1)

love this game it was the first game I ever downloaded off of itch.io it holds a special place in my heart

It really is a good game to start off on itch.io!

(+3)

shit came out 5 years ago im STILL waiting on that sequel i fucking LOVE THIS GAME

I can just imagine how a sequel to this game would be like . . . 

(+5)

I haven't even played the game yet, but the two screenshots showing the shaved ice plan made me laugh so hard I choked on my ramen. So, I decided I have to play now. 

(+5)

Update. I've played the game. I laughed and cooed the whole time. This had no right to make me feel so warm inside. TwT

I love heartwarming games like this.

(+5)

An amazing game! As a half Indian non-binary sapphic, I felt so seen! I can't believe this game is free, it really is priceless. Happy Pride Month everyone!!

(+4)

best 4 hours of my life

This game is so enjoyable that I didn't realize it's about four hours long lol

hah, me too. i realized it only when i looked at the time.. it was near 4 am

(+3)

i loved this so much. it managed to capture that feeling not many games/VNs/stories do and i really apricate that, if you ever make another game ill be very excited to play :)

I'm always supporting games that mostly revolve around friendship and high school!

(+4)

played this game for the first time over 4 years ago. now, after 4 years of hyperfixation, i bought the art book. did not disappoint. i could ramble on forever about how much this game means to me, but that's a lot for one comment. thank you so much, brianna. hope the 5 bucks treats u well.

I'm so excited to get the art book soon!

(+3)
