great game :D the part of rewind...just...wow, how u do that? rewind and another things happen?(sorry for bad english)


thanks! it remembers when you've seen certain lines so jumps to new points in the script when you go back over it haha

HI Nami!


This game was amazing Nami. In fact, all of your games are incredible! I previously played Lonely Wolf Treat and I was immediately addicted to it. Keep up the good work!!! Also I'd love to see a part two to this, there's so many theories on what would happened when Nil and Time meet space again :-) You don't stumble upon a game as great as this one very often, but I'm glad I did!


I love this game so much. Would it be ok for me to make a cosplay of Space? I absolutely love the character.

absolutely!!! i'd love to see that ;o;

Great game :3

Just wanted to say that I FINALLY started to play this amazing game, and I absolutely love it! I hope I did Space's personality justice with my voice acting; can't wait to finish playing and to get all the endings! Thank you for making such a fantastic, beautiful piece of art! :D

Absolutely great game. I like the concept of how Space is able to change the endings. A good mechanism to be imposed and befitting of the character itself.

Ahhh the feels, that was so sweet and the art style so cute and i just want to hug them all.

The ending that i got, i wish i saw there relationship more after that but then making up your own what happens next is nice and how they lived all happy (in my mind). T_T

Time Love Space | Her Tears Were My Light - Part 1

I really love this game and the gameplay and the art style! Honestly, I love all of your games!

It hit me right on the feels.

I felt really frustrated when I kissed space and that I was satisfied with the story (Space's Ending)

Like I was the bad guy.... STILL the game was awesome

The gameplay is unique and fascinating, the characters and drawings are adorable, the story interesting in its semplicity. It's really been a pleasure playing it!


i love your games,and enjoy watching people playing them on youtube-my pc got some serious problem so i cant download any thing,it auto-restart whenever i do (sad life)-i ll look forward to play them myself in the future.your art is so cute,and the stories really lighten up my mind after getting several lethal punchs from some of the RPG horror game-not a strong boy (_ _').Hope you ll keep making more games and nv,keep up the good work :D

well the next thing is a question :3...do you love Undertale ? cause i think i "saw" Sans and Papyrus in Friendly bunny mochi,and the whole reseting to "SAVE" your belove


thank you!! haha i do like undertale! but resetting to save someone is a pretty common trope. it's in quite a few things that i love so it was probably inevitable that i write a story like this.

That game was cute and genius! :D I love your games, so please keep them coming!


Amazing Game

thnaks ,not interested in the translaltions though :)

I just played this game with the Space Ending and I continue to complete the other(s). This game is so adorable and I had a lot of fun playing it, I made a video and I'm going to upload it soon :)

I can't wait to check out more of your games, this was truly amazing. Please keep up the good work! <3

This game was freaking AWESOME! I loved almost every minute of it! I hope you don't mind but I did a lets play of it on my youtube channel

that's great! i love when people do let's plays :) always fun to hear reactions.

Really beautiful and sweet! I thought the use of the rewind button as a gameplay mechanic was really creative and very well implemented. Highly recommended.


This is one of the best and most creative visual novel games I've played. The art style is well done, the music is awesome, and the story and how it unfolds is fantastic. I love how this games story incorporates you using your save points. I for one always try and get the best possible outcome for a game I play. Which always requires me to load back or restart the game to change an outcome. And this game takes that ability but combines into the story. Your character remembers restarting her journey each time, so that in turns changes how she reacts to what is happening in the story. I have never seen something like this in a game and hope to see a sequel from Nami. I did a video on my experience with the game and I believe I was able to show every outcome including the best one if anyone is interested.
