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!!
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!
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.
NO FUCK IT ENDED WHY DID IT END THEY JSUST FUCKING KISSED YOUC ANT DO THIS TO ME I WONT ALLOW IT THIS IS SO UNFAIR YOU CANT DO THIS IM SO MAD I COULD PUNCH SOMEONE WHY WOULD RHIS HAPPEN I CANT EXPRESS HOW ANGRY I AM IM IN ENRAGE!!!!!!
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.
I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS GAME! I just finished playing it on my channel and all i can say is... i want a sequel! It's so incredibly wonderful to see such real and positive lgbtq+ content like this, it warms my heart. Even if you don't make a sequel to this, keep making games, because the passion and spirit i feel from you is exactly what the gaming community needs. <3 -Dani Cobalt
This game was so amazing and I absolutely loved playing through it! The storyline, the art, everything! I loved it!!!! Thank you for such an amazing game!
This is literally the best game i have ever f*cking played like omg, i thought it was gonna be boring BUT AHHHHHHHHHH IM GAY FOR AKARSHA
Not a big fan. I don't like the blatant racism. Also, the game was SUPER boring. I skipped everything after the baseball game playing as Diya. It was just.. boring. Not fun. Not realistic.
...isnt the "blatant racism" there to point out how poc are treated in america and how poc respond in turn?
I literally live an hour from Oakland in a mostly Asian neighborhood, and everything the characters said and experienced was something that resonated with me and my friends. Every pale skinned Asian has to go through someone yelling ching chong or konichiwa at them, even if you are neither Chinese nor Japanese. All of us had faced similar pressure from parents, and when we talked back, we were told we were horrible, ungrateful children. We were taught that the freedom white parents gave their children in choosing a career was foolish and ill-advised. Have you just not experienced these things. making you believe it's fake?
Ain't racist. It's actually really accurate, if a bit exaggerated at times.
I just want to thank you so much, this masterpiece of a game had charecters even though I'm hella white and much so very young it made me fall in love. I realte to each charecter, especially Akarsha where she makes jokes and flirts jokingly to hide her real feelings and her real self who is dark and very well....suicidal. Going through a rough middle school where I've seen my friends and one girlfriend raped or assualted and now trying to conquer highschool and eventually life....this game makes me appreciate the value of your friends. Maybe my friends aren't as deeply rooted as since elementary since i moved a lot but, you made a game that gave me confidence to come out to my family and my normie non close friends. So all I can say is thank you, and I hope for more games like this by you in the future. May you all live peacefully, and prosper fully. May the butterfly soup I am be able to learn the same.
It touch my hearth!!! Thank you TwT!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS THE BEST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED! seriously though this game has been the most enjoyable game i have played in awhile, and it brought me so much joy while playing it. thank you for making this game, i absolutely loved it <3
AAAAAAAAAA i loved this game so much, it was so heartwarming, hhjftfju
make a second one pls
I loved this game so much! It's the best kind of comfort food. Thank you for making it!
Hello. I downloaded Butterfly Soup recently as I love visual novel games. I wasn't expecting much tbh but I was completely blown away! Words cannot describe how much joy this game brought to me. The characters will definitely stay with me forever and I hope you know you made a visual novel masterpiece <3 Also I really wish there was more merch as I would buy it up in a heartbeat haha! <3
this game is so good, i LOVE it. best visual novel ive read! <3
this is??? the best sports anime-not-anime???? wow! 10/10 the coming-of-age story we need and deserve.
i can't help but think that i'd be happier sooner if this existed for me when i was a kid. you're changing lives bro! coming from an asian immigrant family, these characters were so relatable and through this very short time, i seem to have personally connected with them... how dare you make me feel things. thank you for bringing me to laughs and tears, but most of all to bringing to life these wonderful girls and their stories! heart emoji sparkle emoji heart emoji
Hello there! I really enjoyed your games ^ ^
I would like to make a Vienamese translate! :p
Started playing this VN this afternoon after hearing so many good things about it (mostly that it contained gay asians like myself). I know nothing about what the story contains so I'm really excited to get through it! I'll be recording it as I go along. I'm not sure how long it is, but I plan to have ~30 minute segments. Can't wait to finally experience some gaysian representation! <3
Any game that makes me laugh and cry this much has to be perfect! Some of the best writing in a game I've seen in a long time with a story and characters that never let you forget them.
Loved this game from start to end, but something has been really bugging me for some time... Is this game mostly linear, and there are no other paths?...I mean, even though a lot of people ship NoelleAkarsha, or MinDiya, or both, I always shipped NoelleDiya..
I love seeing interesting pairings I haven't seen before, like MinDiya, but I also was interested in something like NoelleDiya. I wanted to see how something like that would come to be. I guess I also just loved how well they got along..Iono, something about the way they talked together just made me ship them. :) (Or maybe because they're my favourite characters, and I wanted to see them together??)
Also had another question, about the first line, I was kinda surprised when I read that everyone was Lez (Not Akarsha, since she's Bi, but still). I may have seen some parts where Noelle might have shown signs like that towards Diya, but I wasn't sure if I was reading too much into it.. So I wanted to ask when Noelle showed this during the game.
(This comment may have seemed like I wasn't satisfied, but most of the games events, the lovable characters, and the awesome humor that nearly kills me, makes this a beautiful game. 9.5/10, would play (Or Plread) again. :3 Also fine with anyone answering these. )
If you look on her tumblr, she explains it a bit more!! If i remember clearly, noelle is lesbian, but she doesn't really know it in this game (so she thinks she's straight?? or just doesn't know?? something like that) . I think the author is going o cover that in the second game!! and yeah, I'm pretty sure this game is linear. If you want to know more you should go on her tumblr ^^
Bro like I'm fricking crying rn like this story, 10/10!!!! It had so many complex elements, it wasn't just a sports thing or a "coming out" thing like it made me excited and happy and sad and everything for so many different reasons. It had layers which is hard to come by with any genre of game, movie, book, etc. I swear that ending brought tears, actual tears, which were a mix of happiness and sadness because 1. This game brought me literal joy I really never wanted to stop I just felt so immersed and it was so relatable to me frfr because my now best friend I knew in fourth grade and she left tat summer following it and in my freshman year I met her again, and2. this is just amazing I was so sad at it ending. While it was lighthearted it also was very thought provoking and touched on some hard hitting issues with grace and eloquency. This obviously was made with tons of love and dedication, nothing seemed half done. The art style was honestly to die for, and all in all I just loveddddddd it! Please don't ever stop doing this because you just brought so much happiness to this gay af teen, and I literally just made an account to gush about all this!!!! Idk if you are making a Butterfly Soup 2 but it would be great if like there was a Noelle Akasha story romance line, even just a delve deeper into their friendship, because they just are soooo cute together!! Love you and this piece of art!!!
I love how this manages to deal with so many serious things while still being lighthearted and super funny. I laughed so many times.
All the characters are absolutely PeRFECT and I loved the hell out of your art.
This might be one of my new favorite VNs. Keep up the amazing work❤️
*GASP* you should write a book. i'm being serious now, you should absolutely write a fokin book. I would keep it in my personal collection of amazing10/10 books. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! plz? pretty please? with a cherry on top? i don't even care what it about, I just wanna read something written by a master of literature arts. Pleasse at least consider. Sincerely, Qrowaven
NO!!! I FINISHED!!! I NEEDS MORE!!
"She plays video games too" "What video games?" "I play Sonic Adventure 2" that instantly wins everyone over" XD
"that was my plan all along, i'm playing 4-dimensional chess" XD AMAZING. I absolutely love this.MAKE MORE PLZ!!!
OMG I freaking love this game!! HOLY WACKY MOLEY KJHDKA I loved It! All tho I kinda wanted to see more lovey-dovey stuff XD And I'm kinda wondering if Noelle and Askash gets together? Anyways LOVE IT!!! XD I ship Min and Diya TO MUCH!
LOVED THIS!!! Great job, thanks for the cool game :3
I generally loved this vn, never enjoyed one so much (apart from doki doki literature club), this was sweet and I generally got so upset when it had officially ended. I wish Noelle and Akasha got together tho, thats my ONLY complaint
This is a great visual novel!!!!!! I want to play it 999999 times more! I do have one question, whats the name of the song that plays when akasha drops the trashcan on Noelle?? I want to make it my ringtone
I know I’m really late but i just wanted to let you know that this is one of the best if not the best game I have ever played! When I first saw it I expected it to just be another visual novel but it wasn’t. I wasn’t expecting this but i played it just a couple of days ago and can’t get it off my mind. I am SO excited for the sequel! Played it twice now so I’m going to buy it for five dollars just to get more.
This is...wow. Was genuinely disappointed when it ended.
