I'm like 2 hours in, and this is both making me laugh out loud and squeal like a preschool girl in excitement.

EDIT: Fucking brilliant.

Extremely funny. The writing is very good, everything feels so believable and relatable, while still being magical. Perfectly captures the torture that is growing up, while also brightly shining as the paradise it simultaneously is.

It's incredible how much was achieved with all four main characters. I especially loved all their interactions with each other - they're all friends in very different ways.

It's extremely rare I find something to be so endlessly hilarious, while still being heartwarming and wholesome all the way through.

I genuinely can't mention a section I felt bored or didn't enjoy - impossibly well-rounded on all fronts.

Fucking bravo.

Please make more games.

I love this game, I played this game a few years ago, sometimes I play it to distract myself because it's amazing

Every second in this game is amazing.

I LOVE THIS GAME--  AKARSHA IS HILARIOUS AND THE CHARACTERS R SO FUN 💞💓❤️‍🔥💖

It's always the comedic relief who's the best.

this game is really amazing, but why does it say 3-4 hours long i only played for 2 hours :(

(+1)

Soooo cute and fun. Loved every second.

Yeah and nice profile picture lol

i just started today and im only at the first baseball meeting and this is the best. this is the best. im overwhelmed, in a good way. ive been yelling in my room every time anything new happens. 10/10, 5 stars. perfect. immaculate.. im in love.

//SPOILERS// chryssa said "chryssa-tal clear" and im in love with her.  I love the dynamic her and liz have. i love the trouble causing duo of akarsha and min. noelle?? the whole hating ehta you cant have??? very interesting. im loosing my mind. Akarsha is so funny. I was a lot like min when i was a kid (angry and overly violent). This is a perfect game so far. <3

This makes me actually want to play sports with friends. Chryssa is one of the queens of puns and Liz is a total boss. Akarsha and Min are platonically meant for each other. And for the relatable part, I'm a lot like Akarsha and Noelle combined. Akarsha's humor is like mine, but physically, I'm Noelle because I can't even hit a baseball lol

I remember playing this so many years ago back in like 2017/18 and I remember it was the first and only game to ever make me cry, like full on sob at the ending. This game is the cutest game ever and I will forever, even now, look on at it so fondly with such happiness cause of all the relatable and wholesome characters and moments. We're all just Butterfly Soup <3

(+3)

i just cant believe how cute this is. all the characters are just so relatable, I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH I DONT EVEN HAVE WORDS FOR IT!!!!!! <3333333

(+3)

<3333333

(+3)

You must be kidding. I loved that game so much. I was so sad when it ended.

(+3)

This is one the best games I think have ever played it is so good and so incredibly fucking funny. It has a good balance of being funny and serious. It is perfection and I will die on that ship screaming these exact words.

(+1)(-5)

cool its like nekopara XD

I can not describe how much I love this game!!!!!!

Like the way they authentically show teenagers  is just top notch!!!

Highly recommend<33

(+6)

Interesting game. I like how the kids feel their age, specially in the flashbacks.

(+8)

I really loved this game. I wish in my country they were more open-minded and I could have come out as lesbian sooner, to enjoy my teen years like they do in the game. But, I just came out at 22 yo. This game made me feel pretty things and I replayed it. Also recomended it to my gf <3 Thank you for this amazing game, Brianna!

LOVE this. Characters; fun, fresh, with unique, fashionable designs, personalities more than entertaining. The atmosphere and music?  Neat symbolism? Check. The memes? Amazing. More than solid. 

Overall, this game never overstayed a welcome (I wish there was more! But alas...) and was everything my lesbian heart wanted and beyond. I found the "texting" parts of the game to genuinely be accurate to my friends and I. And I also laughed at loud more than a few times; something media often doesn't often achieve! The art files made me appreciate the game more after finishing it with a smile on my face (or something like it). Looking forward to the possibility of any new game; regardless if it's connected to the cycle that is Butterfly Soup. 

I am an avid visual novel player and have to say, this one knocked it out of the park!

I LOVE THIS, ALSO WHEN MIN TAUGHT DIYA TO SAY "HI" IN KOREAN I JUST KNEW IT WASN'T HI I GUESSED IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE "I LOVE YOU" AND I WAS RIGHT I THINK

(+4)

WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE SHORT HUHUHUHU

I LOVE IT TOO MUCH I CANT LET GO

(+8)

I have played this midst of a pandemic, I got bored, and I also forgot the name of this game. Good thing the game is still in my storage. It made me realize that I'm really gay lol. Wishing for a sequel in the future. Thank you for making this and I really love it. 

(+3)

A sequel is apparently in the works, but way over the gived deadline. Maybe the creator is a bit burned out? Not sure...

(1 edit) (+3)

WAIT AN SEQUEL ??? TELL ME EVERYTING YOU KNOW ABT THE SEQUEL

(+4)

i love this game so much i hope you'll make a sequel one day 

(+4)

this game was a really positive influence on me back in my gap year and still affects me to this day. the asian experience, academic pressure, being queer. i'm so thankful that this game was made. thank you

(+3)

Hey, I love it! I am a gay girl... I don't play baseball but I like it. If you let me, I would love to translate it into spanish, I'm a native speaker. For free, of course. Like to thank you for this amazing game <3

Hey! Brianna isn’t doing new translations (unfortunately), but we (Queerscriptors) could really need some help. We already have some of the game translated, but there isn’t much work being done on it: https://littleroot.net/weblate/projects/butterfly-soup/translations/es/. Plus, it isn’t limited to spanish, we finished french not too long ago (can be downloaded here)

We also have a discord: https://discord.gg/tzbXdkxWYF

played this visual novel some years ago and loved it. was thinking about it lately so i started a new game. my memory is quite poor so when i re-experience things, sometimes its like i am for the first time again! i am not even though it all yet but i am having so much fun, laughing and crying. its so funny yet also so meaningful, and there are definitely parts that make me very emotional. i love this so much and im sure ill keep coming back to it. i think ill get the art book too, i just really love all these characters ! i relate to a lot of them in different ways. thank you for a very well made queer visual novel~

Oh my god i love this so much

just need to say something really quick and i hope brianna lei can see this: hi! im an asian lesbian and i really really love your game and it completely changed my life and it's probably one of my favorite things ever that's going to stick with me for a long time. it's probably saved my life, actually, but something that's been really bothering me is how akarsha uses AAVE sometimes when she's speaking, for ex. in the auditorium with the word "deadass" and i believe the text where she refers to diya as min's ex the word "lowkey" was also used. im sure that since this game was released in 2017 and some internet lingo hasn't revealed or talked about as appropriated AAVE that it wasn't your intention but it's really uncomfortable to see a non-black character use AAVE in this way, especially with the situation with awkwafina, so i was wondering if it won't be too much work to change some of the dialogue containing these terms?? no pressure at all! i love akarsha a lot (shes my favorite haha) and these are just a little bit a nitpicky thing i had about the game. im very much looking forward to anything you create next!! (im sure ill weep real tears anytime you release something new lolololol bc reiterating what i said earlier butterfly soup really changed my life ive never felt so seen as a nonbinary lesbian asian)

(+1)(-3)

!!idk if this will help your comment get attention but i agree!! im white so i dont want to speak on something that is a black issue so will just leave it at that <3

(+4)

Hi! I just wanted to say that I agree with your critique of the AAVE usage -- you're being very charitable assuming people weren't talking about AAVE appropriation back in 2017, but they were and I was just ignorant! It's something I regret and would do differently if I were making the game today (among other things like using less ableist language). 

Unfortunately because of all the translations that are tied to the lines of text in the game, it's very easy for me to accidentally break it even by making small changes like this. But I'll be more mindful of these issues in my future games, and do my best to keep improving as an artist and a person. I hope you understand!

As an actual  Black person, this is a complete non-issue.  There's so much more to Black culture that quirky phrases and we celebrate when things we use and love permeate into other cultures.  I wish Black beauty standards, music, fashion, and role models ingrain themselves into more and more communities across the world.  They deserve to be shared.  This is not to be conflated with cultural appropriation--as that just muddies the water of the harm of actual appropriation.  


It's frustrating when other other well-meaning groups outside of black culture "speak" on our behalf.  We don't want Akarsha to speak any differently--honestly, that's neither on my radar AND is a simultaneously thing that I love about Akarsha's personality.  Black folks ultimately just want the same thing we have always been asking for: respect and to be regarded as fellow human beings.  That's always been it.  


If someone out there really wants to protect and offer something to  Black community, how about this?--stop referring to us (even through abbreviations) as African Americans.  Honestly, it's 2022.  We're Black.  Charlize Theron is African American.  Brii, you're good, don't change a thing.

Loved this game when I was younger, played it again and still loved it, such a cute game!

Cara, esse jogo é literalmente perfeito, cheguei a chorar muito e dar gargalhadas jogando. Com certeza virou um dos meus jogos favoritos.
