i stan miles the caterpillar

I enjoyed this game


Most iconic phrase min has ever said

Omg I love this game so much it's my fav of all time and I really would love for a part 3, please!


Both 1 and 2 are just, incandescently good

lets go lesbians lets go!! 


Damn still no android ver. Welp seems like the waiting game is still going to continue


Literally an android port linked in the game description.


I loved Akarsha's dialog so much hdjshfkjdhfjd!!!!!!!!! Couldn't put it down <3


Not saying this is good or bad, just an observation: Does Noelle look Caucasian to anyone else? I'm having a hard time picturing her as Chinese. It might be just the "anime effect" where the simplified art style causes you to mentally fill in the details in a way that's familiar to you, I suppose.

No lol




Out of jokes, the game looks really cool, maybe I try it :D

Normally I don't leave comment, but just got sth ought to say....this game is amazing!! I love every part of it! Those characters are incredibly adorable! The plot is hilarious and unexpectedly relatable too. It's simply the game I dream to play.

I'm on mac and I can't seem to open the file, does anyone knows why


This Visual Novel is so super cool. I like the art and story a lot (and the Memes).

This game is like a party in my pocket - I can take it with me everywhere and have a blast. Hats off to the developers for creating such an awesome game

I shouldve played this first before the sequel but idk if its canon BUT DAMN THE SEQUEL WAS AMAZING AHHHHHHHH IM HOOKED ASF


This is probably the best visual novel I have EVER PLAYED.  The art is fantastic, the sound design is great, and the story is AMAZING.  The characters are funny and relatable, with great design.  It's just in general a great little queer visual novel, and I will most definitely play it again.  As a summary, this ga(y)me brings me immense joy, and I thank everyone who pitched in to make this masterpiece


I haven't quite finished it but god this game is good. The characters are all so lovable so far and they're all so funny. Also, I found a thing where you can cut off the sound of the locker closing just as it plays, so it's kind of like a vine boom

I'm so glad I played this, this was so nice!! Truly the VN of all time. Everyone should play this.


This game will be turning 6 y.o. this year, and I'm honored to have played it the year it was released. I was in high school too and was just able to date my girl crush then, so this game was highly relatable and helpful with my "Am I A Lesbian?" phase (I am), plus we're Asian. We broke up on good terms, and I guess that was a blessing in disguise, as now I've met my soon-to-be wife, with whom our relationship back in freshman college was similar to Noelle and Akarsha's. We both played the 2nd season of this game, which I highly recommend that you play too if you love it, and were thrilled to be able to play it together as the story was once again similar to our bond and made it stronger. Wouldn't it be amazing to be able to play the 3rd season with our future child?? Charot :P

Anyway, thank you for this wonderful game. I wish you well in your endeavors, and I love you so much, Brianna Lei! Sorry just had some time on my hands to come back to this page again since I think of it from time to time.


I freaking love the art and characters, They give such amazing, weird? personality's. this game was pretty creative, I would play in this game for another 4 hour.


I just wanna tatoo the entire game on myself, it was awesome. I loved it so much, the characters are such a vibe. 

send love to u xoxo <3

this made me laugh an embarrasingly amount of time given the quality of some of the jokes, but the plot is really well built and the ending made me cry and that's the only thing i need from a game. also, akarsha is literally me but better. gonna play the sequel now :)


so i saw this within my recommendations of like "game starts off cute and normal but then everything goes bad" type of games. is that the case here? cause i fw gay people and i fw baseball but i also like being spooked

nope, this isn’t a spooky game 

Ah Alright. Good job on the game tho

that's hella kiawe is now my new favorite catchphrase

how are these kids 9th graders they act like 5 year olds

love the game anywayss


i was in the ninth grade around when this game was released, i think i acted exactly like them (unfortunately? fortunately?)

I still remember Naruto running in front of my friends to make them laugh... little did I know all the other people in my 9th grade class also saw it.


i remember my classmates in 9th grade acting dumber than that lol but in a good way


New favourite game alert. This was so CUTE I'm dying my heart is doing backflips. The ending actually gave me butterflies. Not only is this the most adorable gay love story I have ever read it hit some spots with the asian parents too. All the characters are so damn relatable. Pls I can't get over how fluffy the ending was I want so bad, I felt like my life was displayed on screen theyre just like me fr. Each of them has depth and a proper background it felt like they were real people. I love all of them Diya, Min Seo, Akarsha and Noelle. Also this game had me giggling my ass off the humor was so unexpected right down my alley. I too am a gay joke Akarsha. And ofc the most screenshottable, gummy yummy animation style bro this game is love at first sight. Plot, characters, gay, humor, music 10/10. This game made me feel warm and fuzzy, and most of all: seen. Gonna play the sequel tomorrow hehe.

I've been waffling on playing this since literally 2017 and I'm so happy I finally did, thanks for making this.


I discovered this game and the sequel recently and I can't get enough of it! I love this game and honestly i'm surprised it isn't more popular!


I love this game so much! I've actually made a thematical Spotify playlist for each character if someone would like to check it out :)





Enjoy <3

hey, what's the flag from noelle's playlist, just curious (also, i followed the playlists)


Thanks for following the playlists. Also I'm not sure but I think it's just different version of lesbian flag :)

Good game. Is there an official discord server?

There isn’t one! You might be able to find fanmade ones if you look around on twitter or tumblr 

this game is beautiful. is there a way for me to see the art without the dialogue box? or is it in the bonus art?

The game's backgrounds and sprite art are available here! https://brianna-lei.itch.io/butterfly-soup-art-assets?secret=qdw2e7OlAMRHZ3d6Qlji3aPcavY


i accidentally downloaded the second game first and immediately went back to the first one. The story is just incredible, everyone's personality and growth is so natural and endearing i was smiling through my entire playtime. The memes?? chef kiss, 150% burst out laughing material

I´ve been giggling at this for 5 minutes


I streamed this game to my viewers and let me just say this was a BLAST to play.  I can't wait to get started on the second one!! :]

i enjoyed this visual novel. the story was really nice

this was really sweet and the dynamics between all the characters were amazing <3 thank you for such a cute experience, the girls feel super real.


OMG I LOVE THIS SOOOOO MUCH. this game is amazing, definitely one of my favorites~ I wanna be friends with all of them~ also, I LOVEEEE baseball, but never got to play in a real team because I didn't feel like I was good enough. I relate a lot to Diya (we have similar personalities) and to Min (because of our families). Thank you soooo much for making a game <3 As a lesbian baseball-lover, I LOVE this.

PS: I gotta confess that I kinda really ship Noelle and Akarsha hahsh

Ahem 100000000000000000000/10 


i am making no exaggeration when i say this is one of the best games i have ever played. i wish i was friends with all the characters :) i loved it so, so much <3
