The left-over warm fuzzies are what have gotten me out of bed to brave the world this last week. Thank you for sharing these stories <3
love it!! I agree it was a bit short but it takes a lot of effort to make and it turned out great!!
I only have some questions... Who does Noelle like? Is it Diya? 'Cause that's what it seemed like to me haha
In any case, this game of soft romance and comedy should be rated 5 stars! Keep up the good work! :)
this was beautiful. love my gay baseball daughters
Wow this really gave me hope.
So many aspects of Butterfly Soup really hit home, and the love story was so touching. The only problem that I had with it was that it was too damn short.
hope you make more VNs
Hi, I made an account because I absolutely had to thank you for this story.
This week's been a long, heavy depressive mood for me; it's my first holidays since accepting myself and coming out, and my family hasn't been the most understanding. I already had Butterfly Soup on my computer thanks to Simone's top 5 on Polygon. I'm so glad I built up the motivation to read it today.
You had me laughing again in minutes. It felt magical how much I resonated with your characters, especially Diya. I've literally done the apple core thing! I'm not sure how much of Diya's social struggles you attribute to her partial deafness, but for mine it was undiagnosed ADHD. Difficulties with socializing can really fuck a kid up.
The message at the end really touched me, and as of now I don't feel a hint of depression weighing me down! So again, thank you for lifting up this gay girl's heart! <3
I absolutely loved it and can't wait to see what you do next!
I´m falling in love with this game and I wanted to ask if and how could I translate it into spanish.
OH MY GOD??? THIS IS LIKE...THE BEST GAME EVER!!! !I love it! !I love it! !I love it! !I love it! !I love it! !I love it! !I love it! MADE ME CRY, LAUGH AND RELATE A LOT! 10/10.
this is VERY GOOD THANK U
oh my gosh!! this game was beautiful! i teared up several times even and i never do that haha i really loved this!! thank you for making it!
I got really curious about Akarsha life at home tho! :)
Love the game, and I'm about 30 minutes in. Ran into a screen resolution problem. Everything worked fine, until I changed to fullscreen, closed the program, and then restarted the program. Now in either window or fullscreen, it fills only half of the screen. I'm using a 1080 laptop, with hdmi to a 720 tv. From the log file:
primary display bounds: (0, 0, 1920, 1080)
Screen sizes: virtual=(1366, 768) physical=(1740, 978) drawable=(1740, 978)
I just want to thank Brianna for making such an absoultely wonderful game. The way it balanced light hearted humour with deeply emotional scenes made this an entertaining story from start to finish. I've been really struggling with writer's block for months now but playing this reminded and inspired me of the power that stories can have. The ending genuinely brought me to tears, I was expected the message of the story to be heart warming but a little cheesey when in actuality it struck a little too close to home. The words felt so genuine and I think its something a lot of queer women feel they needed to hear. I'm still pretty emotional as I'm writing this, but I cannot stress enough how greateful I am that this exists. I can't wait to play it over and over again forever. Thank you so much for creating something truly special.
hello i am crying thank you for giving me these new gaybies to love and cherish
This is too fckin adorable!!!! I love it. The characters are fun and sweet and I find myself grinning constantly. Gameplay is fun too!
I loved playing through this so much, it was really super sweet!
Just one thing though, would a content warning for period blood be able to be added? It would just have been nice to have a heads up for that scene, though I understand it doesn't really fit with the other warnings you have there.
This is seriously the best visual novel I have played in a long time. That includes compared to visual novels on steam that are $10+. All the characters were so damn likeable the dialogue is hilarious and the girl love in it is very sweet and believable. I can't give this visual novel enough praise. I was blown away :3 I hope you guys make more games like this.
This game made me so happy?? I played this all in one go, and messaged my friends about it the whole time. We're gonna get together later, and then I get to watch them play it. Also, I'm going to start saying that one line all the time. "I make gay jokes because I am a gay joke." Gold.
I love how the characters have different personalities and got along and love eachother but plz no more Akarsha bad puns plz
Meems are, sometimes, a bit old (but I can understand because the story is on 2004 ish?)
So much of this game resonated with me and the ending lines were probably some of the most uplifting things I've ever read.
these characters everything about this game so so much. This representation <3
I just finished playing this and ohMYGOD I LOVE IT SO MUCH EVERYTHING IS AMAZING AND CUTE AND MADE ME LAUGH A LOT good job I really enjoyed it and I will most likely play it again !
Really good! One of my favourite games of the year!
(Sorry if my english is bad!) We really need more games like this. This was so beautiful and made me feel so many strong emotions... I seriously can't wait to have some money so I can spend more on this and also get the bonus art! Thanks you so much for this, really!!!
this is the most beautiful shit i've ever experienced i couldnt stop smiling
can there be a sequal or something?

harold, they're..... gaysians
but really, this was so nice! i have no criticisms at all about any aspect of this game to be honest! everything was really on point, and i love how all of these characters are developed, and the dialogue was wonderful. awesome job !!
This is the cutest thing that exists in reality
I love this game so much, it gave me alot of advice on almost everything hey and maybe help me out to open up to this girl I like! Anyway.. im glad for this games existance xD
This game was great! I really enjoyed the story line and loved all the characters.
So far I'm enjoying this! I didn't realise you're the same creator who did Pom gets Wi-Fi (so that's why your name sounds familiar!)
I'm just fangirling about asian lesbians :> Diya actually reminds me of my best friend
This is my favourite game of all time!1!! Like I don't think I have ever related to game characters this much in my life. As a smol, angry, and gay little shit I appriciate this game to no end. Bless your goddamn soul for creating this masterpiece!1!!
this is such a nice game! the dialogue was really funny also gay asian representation? god has blessed me
and uhhh are these ace attorney sound effects because i played the games for like 2 years and they would reeeally similar
this game is like peeing on urself... everyone can see it but only u get the warm feeling it brings.... warning: looong block of text below hahaha
A visual novel about gay Asians??? Am I dreaming? Like did you somehow teleport into my mind and read my thoughts? Because that should be outlawed! You executed exactly what I was looking for so well that I somehow feel violated!!! LMAO but seriously... As a gay South Asian, I was already super interested in the game just from the screencaps. A lot of times people exclude us and forget that we are Asian too!! It was just a breath of fresh air to really feel represented for once. The story and artwork was just amazing, it was so realistic (well maybe except for the knife-wielding...) and the relationship development was just beautiful. And god I probably actually laughed out loud like 10 times. The messages between the characters really felt like conversations I might have with my friends, nothing felt forced or out of place. I especially admire how Min and Diya's relationship was portrayed, it wasn't rushed, too unrealistic, or forced. Their relationship was just that of a normal teenage gay couple (again minus Min's urge to stab her enemies whoops). Thank goodness I didn't have to relive yet another grown man's embarrassing lesbian fantasy wet dream-type story.
If there's anything I would critique it's that in the beginning Diya should not introduce herself directly (you know, the "hi, i'm so-and-so and i'm just a boring teenage girl, welcome to my sad life" trope). Remember, SHOW not TELL! :) Also, the sound effects sometimes were too loud in comparison to the text noises and the background music. And in case people don't understand what the "pani" in "pani puri" is, it can be translated to "tamarind water." It's really sweet, sour, and spicy, not just spicy! Imagine an extra-sour lemon but with chili flakes and sugar on it!
Solid 10/10 from me! I would looooveee a sequel to follow up with all of the characters in their futures!
PS: I'm from Bangladesh! In Bengali, there is no hello, except the Muslim greeting, but there is a "How are you?" Romanized, it would be something like "Tumi kamon acho?" "I like to fart" = "Ami paad dhi te phochondo kori." Love the game; hope to see your future works! :D
