This is one of those games that are so good that you never want them to end, like Loz games. This games story was so good and I think it hit a lot of target points for different types of people and cultures.  I found myself laughing a lot at Akarsha's jokes and at the soundtrack, I also enjoyed all of the interactions, they seemed so real, like I was actually there, Overall, great game 10/10 would play a sequel (hint hint)

So. Butterfly Soup. What a fantastic game. I’ll start with the characters since they’re what it’s all about and ramble from there. When you first meet each of the characters they appear as the normal likable high school teen types. You have the shy one, the tough one, the goofball and the strict one. Each enjoyable right away but as the story progresses the characters really end up being more like real people than the normal cardboard cutout high school stereotypes. Each have very realistic struggles that people battle with every day. Be it abuse, depression or social anxiety each character seems to really feel human in their struggles. By the end no one has truly solved their problems they’ve just made them a little less prominent in their life. Getting to play as each character also helps humanize them as you’re able get inside the mindset of each one and by the end seeing these characters legitimately happy together really puts a smile on your face. I could probably go on forever about how much I love the characters but we need to talk about other stuff. The art. The art is so perfect for a game like this. Not too cutesy but not too many hard edges that make the characters seem too serious. The designs are also great because not everyone looks like the perfect person. Each design is very natural but bold and memorable. The backgrounds also while not as focused on are really nice and pleasing to the eyes. The music by Miltata and Ketsa also sets the more chill atmosphere of the game extremely well and I have the songs on repeat. The humor is also a small but amazing addition. It had me actually laughing out loud which is rare for any game. And finally the writing and message of this beautiful story. Brianna Lei’s writing is absolutely amazing and like I mentioned when talking about the characters you really do feel for them and their troubles. The romance is also handled extremely well and doesn’t just say “HEY LOOK ITS LGBT LIKE US BECAUSE ITS GOT LGBT REP” There’s actual substance to the characters romantic feelings (with a hint of that nerdy LGBT community). And the message of actually taking time to develop yourself and not just being the person everyone else tells you to be. It has the be yourself message but in this game it really does work and isn’t some cliche. Butterfly Soup is a very inspiring game that made me feel all the emotions in the book but in the end I truly felt happy. Seeing the characters all together goofing off and them talking about how your life is yours really hit me hard. This game was something I truly loved and it along with it’s characters will always have a place in my heart for making me realize I’m my own person and no one can take that from me.

Yo uhhhhhh this is the best game I've played in a while. Please make more stuff like this, I fucking love the characters. 

Also please confirm that Akarsha x Noelle is real

I'm honestly SO happy right now, I can't even really remember the last time I've felt this kind of warmth inside my heart.  The characters all are really likeable (except the parents, for obvious reasons) and immensly well written. The art is just... argh, I don't even know how to descibe it. Let's just say it's incredibly beautiful and fitting the characters really well. I'd love to write more, but I'm literally sitting here sobbing out of happiness. Thanks for making this game, it's an absolute masterpiece <3

I love this game! I like how the style is and how we get to peek into all the girls lives.I really hope that Diya and Min's parents accept her as a lesbian! This game made me realize that i was a lesbian and that i shouldnt be afriad.

No matter how many times I played this I still love it because it's literally everything fun I wish I had experienced during my highschool days while at the same time it makes me miss highschool where I had to live life in a carefree manner whilst understand what the four are going through with having overbearing parents and that one friend who makes everything fun and chill. Man, I fucking love this game!

You could tell it was going to be good from the description, but somehow it manages to far surpass any expectations anyone could have. Really ingenious well made game. Best thing I've seen in a long time.

hi my computer does not allow me to open this game because it is not from the App Store :( pls someone help

Hi! You need to open up your system preferences once you get the message saying that you can't open it and then go to security and privacy, in there it will give you the option to open the game :)

This was such a lovely game to play and to explore. The art, story, development, ideas, story, art, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Amazing game, I would recommend it to anyone who can play it.

Made an account just so I could comment. 

The game is pretty well done (though it should be more akin to a voiceless movie since gameplay is strictly touch menu buttons at specific times) 

Its a really nice story though I'm really disappointed that there's so much more about the characters and backgrounds that could be delved more into. 

Especially Noelle and her relationship with her mother, I would have loved to see the resolution to it, be it her leaving or the mom gaining a conscience. 

The relationship between all four girls was fantastic and I laughed at every stupid thing they said. (Especially Akarsha, she's my favorite idiot)

Music, sound design, and characters are all fantastic. What a cute and lovely little game.

(+3)(-1)

the developer mentioned that the final game was supposed to be much longer but they split it in half so they could release it sooner, since the development was already taking a long time. i heard a sequel presumably containing the second half of the game is in the works, so maybe we'll see more background info n stuff there.

Really? can you keep me updated or is that too bothersome?

Thanks for reading!

OH MY GOD OKAY

THIS GAME IS THE BEST FUCKING GAME I HAVE PLAYED IN A LONG ASS TIME AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT

FROM CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT TO THE ART TO THE PLOT TO THE PLOT T W I S T S TO THE KAZOO FLUTE MUSIC TO THE ATMOSPHERE TO THE ENDING TO THE HUMOR AND BURSTS OF ROMANCE AND THE WAY THIS GAME COVERS EVERYTHING FROM BASEBALL TO HOME PROBLEMS TO SEXUALITY TO GENDER TO PUMMELING YOUR BROTHER IN THE FACE WITH A BASEBALL. IT'S SUCH A GOOD GAME AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO HAS A COMPUTER AND AN INTERNET ACCESS.

YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD THIS GAME. PLEASE, GOD. DOWNLOAD IT. EXPERIENCE IT. D O  I T.

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

(+9)(-1)

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.

(+5)(-1)

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! 

(+4)(-1)

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