YES NO WORDS JUST YES
HELL YEAH! Pastille content! Just what I needed!
i played this to fall asleep to last night but got so hooked i got through it in one go. i think the best bit, to me, even with all the fantastical elements, is how grounded in reality it is in the small trials and triumphs of navigating relationships. the witchy boys really got through to me. thank you.
the cutest and best visual novel I've ever played, thank you for such a nice game :)
Oh my god this was so cute I was Literally SCREAMING OUT OF CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!!
Love it so much!!!!!!
im downloading the game rn im super excited :D
Periwinkle remind me of a guy I met in highschool. He was whiny pile of s*** who wanted relationships without commitment
He was toxic asf like the mc, but instead of being called out as the creep he is, peri is being praised as a tragic character, like he not at fault for his own misery
Hey, steady on a bit there...
I don't know anything about the guy you met in high school, so I can't really pass judgement on him, or you, or whatever went on between the two of you. He may well have hurt you or treated you badly, and if he did, then it's completely fine for you to be angry and resentful of him. No-one should mistreat others, and it's understandable for people to be angry about being mistreated.
But even so, I think you might be projecting him onto Periwinkle a bit here.
I don't really think Periwinkle 'is being praised as a tragic character'. The story is told from his point of view, so I suppose it's easy to get that impression - sometimes Peri makes excuses for his behaviour and his feelings, and that could be misinterpreted as the story saying that he's right, and not just making excuses.
I think the story shows that Peri's misery is caused by his own misunderstanding, and his own reluctance to examine his feelings. The scene where he has that long conversation with Astragalus near the end, and the scene with the unnamed angry witch, both seem to show that.
(Plus, the game shows that Peri's misery is just something that he needs to understand and find ways to make better - it's something that is CAUSED by him, but not something that he needs to be BLAMED for or seen at FAULT for, like he's done something wrong, because being miserable isn't really a moral failing!)
I also don't think it's really fair to say that Peri is 'toxic' or a 'creep'. Peri seems very considerate of other people's feelings. For example, he makes sure of Pastille's pronouns when they go on their first date, and when he turns down Cassia he sees to do it very gently and tactfully. Also, when he goes to see Pastille at work for the first time, and Pastille gets upset about it, Peri seems genuiely upset and apologetic about the mistake he made, and he makes sure to be more considerate of Pastille's boundaries in the future.
I suppose you might not like how Periwinkle teases people and makes suggestive comments - I wouldn't really like it if someone spoke to me like that - but I get the impression that Peri only acts like that with people who he already knows wouldn't mind it. He's forthright and outspoken and cheeky, but I don't think he goes out of his way to upset people or make them feel uncomfortable. He may do that sometimes, but only by accident.
I'm sorry if this game and its characters brought up bad memories for you, and I'm sorry if I did that as well, or stepped over any lines with this comment.
I just thought that your comment was a bit unfair and unfounded, that's all.
AHHHH THIS GAME IS SO CUTE! I loved it! :D
I played the game and I absolutely loved it! I have heard you have made gl games. If you wouldn't mind, could you give information of the names of them?
Very slight spoiler alert for those who haven't played the game yet:
The part where Peri and Pastille talk about their relationship with gender absolutely destroyed me. I've genuinely never seen a character I relate to more than Periwinkle when it comes to gender identity and expression.
This game is absolutely beautiful and I love it. The characters are fucking adorable and amazingly written. I wish I could forget this game to replay it blind.
Häi. Your game is truly wonderful. And the visual story and the chibi characters were all so sweet. However, I never played through the whole game. Because my english is like a baby seal. Anyways! Thank you for making this.
Nami? i have a question, is it really hard to make visual novels? (I've been wanting to do a non-despair danganronpa au for a while now -w-) if you answer this then thank you! if not it's fine!
Thank you so much! I'm definitely going to try it!
Hey, your idea sounds neat! Do you mind telling when you've finished making the game? Also, if there's going to be any ships in there, do you mind telling me, I just want a heads up if there's not I ship that I don't agree with! I hope you enjoy making this, and have a great rest of your day/night!😊
(p.s, don't feel pressured to tell me anything, it's your choice! ^-^)
yeah There's probably going to be ships i think Naegiri, Komahina Saimatsu or saiouma (I cant pick QwQ) tokomaru(that is if komaru actually appears) and a few others! full list coming soon!
I could post paragraphs upon paragraphs about why this story is so good, about why it's so touching, and why it's enjoyable even when digging through the more complicated part of figuring out relationships, but I'm sure nobody wants to read novel-length observations in a comment section.
So I'll just say that this story is emotionally mature, resonant, and real in a lot of ways I've never experienced in the romance visual novel genre. It's simply and remarkably touching. It's also charming, lighthearted, and fun. To combine all that into one package is no easy feat, but the way it's all masterfully woven together here has impressed and will no doubt inspire me going forward.
did i just cry because of a game about boywitches in love
but, like, oh my god, periwinkle is so relatable and pastille is so adorable and cute
like,,,, i relate to periwinkle too much;
cute wonderful cute — three words desribing this game
EDIT: cried 3 times
My heart! Thank you I'll die
This game is really cool!
I love Everything about this and My hart cant take it anymore. It Has Great story telling and the music is amazing. the scenery is also vary nice to look at plus all the jokes Periwinkle made but I know its not canon but Where would Treat, Mochi and Moxie be?.
Such a fun and well-made game! Really something unique and special! I love the characters, the art is really cute, and the story is done really well. An absolute delight from start to finish. Would definitely recommend anyone reading this to give it a shot, and check out Nami's other games, because they're just as good!
And thank you Nami for always making fun, cute, inclusive games for people to enjoy♡
I really love this game! It's so calming and adorable, it melted my heart. I like how it's a slightly more mature type of game. Also Periwinkle and Pastille are the OTP. Thank you for another masterpiece Nami!
can i just say how much i love this game?
1.ITS SO ADORABLE MY HEART MELTED AAAAAAA
2.Its very ✨gay✨
3.Pastille best boy fight me if not UnU (im just kidding don't kill me)
4.smexy smex '>'
And that's why you should play this game
I love this I love this I love this I love this aaaaaaaaaaa (>w<)
(Periwinkle seems like a tsundere…)
I love all of Nami's games and this one is no exception! I love how satisfying their games are both visually and audiowise. Highly Recommend!
Edit: Just realized that this game is quite long as compared to the previous games and its the most heartwarming plot with very well built characters. Loved it!
i love all your games, but this... is on a whole nother level. this is so beautiful, and the story impacted me so much. this is absolutely fantastic.
this is the most adorable thing ive ever seen i cant deal... your games never disappoint
This game is so cute! I love how you can customise Periwinkle avatar a bit to you liking. I may haven't completed the game fully yet but it very amazing how the game is already is and i really was a bit surprised that there was a second chapter in it. I love how you did a cross over of two of your diffrent games that you made into this story. That all for right now i i hope to see way more in the future. and also happy new years (Saying that 3 months after the new years is a bit awkward)!
P.S. I was playing the game and in the middle of it i thought it be funny to use the iconic cheat code (up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) and got freaked out when this popped up on my screen
I'd rather see a VN about Basil tbh
This is a Visual Novel about Periwinkle, isn't it?
This is so fricking adorable
Amazing. This was a adorable and awesome story. I really enjoyed it! Can't wait to see more content from you.
Starry Flowers is such a sweet visual novel about two witch boys falling in love! This is exactly what I wanted to play for a cozy and sweet weekend. And the dialogues are so adorable <3 I want to play everything single games that you've made now Nami *__*
Part 2 is here! Seeing Pastille in a pink apron was just too good *_*. And seeing how they are getting closer to each other and thinking about each other and teasing each other (I mean mostly Periwinkle huhuhu) was just adorable! I am feeling butterflies and happy dances for them all along. This is just too cute!
This is the first game I ever played I will gladly rate a 10/10. The conflicts and storyline were almost perfect. The characters were unique and filled my day with enjoyment to read about. It is rare to both relate and absolutely negate yourself from a character's behaviors and still completely enjoy. The entire plot was solid with great characters and amazing development. When I stopped playing this to pick up later I could not help but keep this game and its' characters on my mind. Fantastically made.
Best of your work so far. I've always been shy to gay couples in media because they're normally done by someone who has no idea what gay people are like, but I knew I would enjoy it if it was made by you. And my expectations were blown out of the water. I love seeing more of Pastille, and his relationship with Periwinkle is absolutely adorable and made my heart melt.
They're cute. Unbelievably cute. Every single sprite of Pastille made me go 'aww', and I didn't know how much more of Periwinkle I actually wanted. Nami, your works never fail to make me feel happy, and I'm really looking forward to more! Thank you so much!
i see no complaints here
It was adorable! I really enjoyed it~
i am so sad that i finished the story and theres nothing more to read, can you make a part 2? (my suggestion for a part 2 is basically this story but in pastille's pov) this story will always stick with me and i always think of periwinkle and his cuteness
When I met Periwinkle at First Kiss At A Spooky Soireé, I though you named him after this thing
I love the art style, it's sooooo cute, the story is perfect, i love everything about this game. 10\10
love everything about this, from the art to the plot!! pastille and periwinkle, YOU HAVE MY ENTIRE HEART !!
Heyyyyy just wanted to let you know that I loved you're super wholesome game, I love your art and I love you !!! <3
