I love it omg this is really cute

A loveable story that's amazingly relatable and realistic, lighthearted yet hitting me hard in the feels whenever it feels like it.

Does anyone know if dubbing it is okay? 

Brianna Lei said she's okay with fanmade content, gameplays and memes. Not really sure about fanmade voice acting but I'm pretty sure she allows it too.


THIS IS SO CUTE!!! me and my s/o played this together we had an amazing time!! thank u sm for making this masterpiece!! <3


Hey, thanks for the loveliest story! Is there any possibility we could see an added trigger warning/skip section button for Min's difficult experience?

As a south Indian bisexual, thank you for the representation I never got to see. This game will always hold a dear place in my heart <3

I love the game so far, the art style is amazing along with the storyline, I really enjoy the background music as well, great job!

What the hell??
This game isn't even suitable for children lmao, but it's not tagged as mature because there's no graphic content.


and why is it not suitable for children?

(2 edits) (+2)

Bad words, a lotta of bad words. Also, it contains written child abuse (no graphic content, just words).

Warnings aside, this Visual Novel is amazingly realistic. I LOVE it!


im a kid and i love this game so much


wtf weirdo the summary clearly says gay girls playing basketball what did u expect to find maybe keep this shit to urself and not say it to the wrong person before ur homophobic ass gets jumped


kids shouldn't learn about love?


im just looking at these comments with the biggest shit eating grin ever.

What's up with that FNF spam?

Thank you so much for creating this game ! I found it really moving and insightful. Incredibly funny references and many of the issues raised by the game were profound and highly relatable. I would be extremely happy to translate it into French in order to allow even more people to play and love the game. This is really an epoch-making game <3 !. 


I really like this game! I would want a butterfly soup 2 but, that's really not how things work I guess. I recommend it


It's in the works


cant wait to play this

I loved it <3


Love love love this game! Definitely a classic of the genre. We wrote up a full review on our blog about the story and our impressions (all good!). Definitely recommend everyone play this great game.


GDFGIUSUG. THIS GAME IS WONDERFUL!!! I am totally in LOVE with this game. Also, Diya is my fav character because she is from same the same country as me <3


This was so much better than I could have ever imagined. I had put off playing it because I was worried that I wouldn't relate fully to the characters because I am not of asian descent. I really did relate to them and laughed so hard at the skateboard meme, that was my favourite part. I think this is one of the best free games on here! I might draw fanart for this game when I have the time. Thank you for making this!!


Check out the Butterfly Soup Webcomic (Extra Innings)!

Why Can't More Games Be Like This? Like this story, the characters, everything! 😳


just.... perfect. No other words can describe this game. It's perfect


HANDS DOWN THE BEST GAME EVER- i need a relationship like tha


couldn't have said it better myself.


This is honestly my favorite game I have ever played. The characters look and act like normal teenagers, the writing is just fricking hilarious, it's just all around the best and I hope the sequel gets done soon.
