I sat down and was actually physically incapable of standing up until I inhaled the whole thing, ty brianna for your amazing, moving, and hilarious work : 'DDDDDD <3

I played the first game when I was in 7th grade now Im playing the second game as a senior in highschool I feel like I grow up with this game and im really happy about it <33

noelle and akarsha are starting to get a bit too relatable

It was a reference from the first game

I would like the game to have translation in Portuguese ;)


Unfortunately the Portuguese translators haven’t been that active. It’s only 1% done for Portuguese (Portugal) or 9% done for Brazilian.

Is there a way one could volunteer help?


So cute! so fun! So many balls, of so many varieties! Having grown up in a very white UK school,  love this glimpse into this messy, vibrant place. 10/10 would get dumbfounded by Akarsha's random questions again



I love Min-seo and the arc you wrote for her. I enjoyed this game a lot, even more than the first one.

NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM FRECKING OUT RN


last year I played first game with my friend and we both loved it. We were so excited when we saw the second game and played it together. I love this game and its characters so much. My friends also loves it. And we both find this game funny and quote the dialogues sometimes. Anyway, I am glad I played it. Lots of love <3


I am once again alive. I miss Butterfly Soup. I miss Brianna Lei. I miss being a fresh and clumsy gay highschooler relying on a visual novel for existential clarity. This game really made a safe bubble for a lot of people. Thank you Brianna Lei for existing.


this game is honestly one of the best games i've ever played. i really enjoyed the first one and the sequel exceeded every expectation i had. growing up in an immigrant household, i find myself relating a lot to all of their stories in some way, but most especially diya and noelle's. this game means so much to me because i can finally have characters that have the same experiences and struggles as me. i cried a little bit when i finished the game and the credits rolled. it was really great, thank you :3


I hope they played Portal 2 together when it came out


The announcement came as such a wonderful surprise.  A must-play.

Just finished last night. Absolutely magical, thank you for these games!


if you stop making butterfly soup visual novels release them all in a pack on steam that'd be cool


I cannot believe theres a part 2! I am very excited to play it!


Thank you so much, it was so, so wonderful. I loved the original and the expanded story, their triumphs and their struggles, and, yeah, there was giggling, crying, and being so happy for these characters. I love them all. Thank you bringing them back to keep telling their stories. 


wwhat in the actual fuck


I just finished the 1st and it was so good, thanks for this game!


I loved this, i remember playing the game years ago and finally came on itch.io for the first time in months to find that a part 2 was made. I laughed and cried at the end, all of the characters feel so real

Having finished the game, here's my review:



very cool gays :o


I loved the first one and this is the perfect continuation. This is now one of my favourite games ever, it makes me so happy!! Thank you!!


Absolute masterpiece, gay as hell, fantastic mix of serious, lightheartedness, love, and of course, memes. 11/10




Heartwarming, funny, queer, touching, emotional but also hard sometimes. Such a well-written story! Thank you!


I just finished playing it and I loved it so much my heart absolutely swelled.  Officially one of my favorite story games if it wasn't before :DD  


I have so much love for this series. The first installment was already a wonderful story on its own but I am so glad you've continued on with a second one! The first Butterfly Soup meant so much to me as a 14  year old and i now, nearing 20, am overjoyed after playing Butterfly Soup 2. I feel like I've grown up with these girls. 

All aspects of the game are well made, from the atmospheric backgrounds and sound effects, to the lovely soundtrack that's very fitting to the game. The meme references and dialogue exchanges between characters are funny as hell. It is so exciting to see D.A.M.N and all the others again and play through their new arcs.

Thank you Brianna for all the time and work you've put into these wonderful games. This series will always have my support <3




so good my god

gay people are real
