UPDATES:

  • 1/28/2018 - version 1.2 is up! the game is now in portuguese!! also added a language select screen when the game starts, and put in the korean translation as well.
  • 9/15/2017 - VERSION 1.1 IS OUT! includes french translation and OpenDyslexic font option for dyslexic readers. i had to change the game menu buttons to work with the translations, and i added a help screen and a mute button, and i changed the credits to be handwritten (again to work with translations.) a certain scene with butterscotch  was slightly altered to be more clear (no change in the text, i just hid the textbox for a bit and added a longer flash of light). i also added some new flavor text on the title screen. AND the game exe actually has its custom icon this time, and i finally changed the window title to not say "candyvn" anymore LOL. all other changes are minor on the coding end so, that's about it! planning to add the other languages back into the new build soon.
  • 8/3/2016 - korean version still had save files in it. oops. those have been removed now
  • 6/23/2016 - spanish translation is up!
  • 3/21/2016 - edited the korean version a bit. also gonna use this space to say HEY have you played LONELY WOLF TREAT? it takes place in the same universe ;)
  • 2/20/2016 - a korean translation has been added as a separate download
  • 2/7/2016 - there's now a web version of the game!

Spanish version for mac? ":(

After i got the good ending seeing the cannibal ending just breaks my heart ;-; 

look like a cute Warrior warning center :3

*looks at seccond screenshot* BOI

What its what it looked like she was doing

I loved, loved all the characters in this game! Syrup and Gumdrop were my absolute favs!

Also made a video for it:

skhhskhskhdfks oml when i saw treat i almost died of happiness.I love this all of your games so much

I noticed that the vast majority of your games has Korean translation, while translations for other languages are sporadic. By any chance, are you a Korean?

the korean translations are done by my friend KyleHeren! translations are sporadic because they are done on a volunteer basis.

this is a great game i absolutely loved it has amazing art styles and a great storyline tbh i loved pastille

I have no words for this game...It's so...ADORABLE...Beautiful, You had a good Work on 'em Huh... I loved it.

I am in love with this game! I found it while looking for new games to stream, and I felt like playing something on Itch.io. I do not regret downloading this for a second! Gumdrop is by far the most lovable character I've seen in a visual novel.  You can find the stream here if you would like.

Sorry if you've been asked this before, but I can't really tell which end is cannon. Sorry if I'm just being dumb and it says somewhere in the game.

there's no true ending, so all of them are canon honestly! gumdrop's is the easiest to get though i think.

Judging by your webcomics some endings are clearly not canon (assuming that the webcomics itself is canon).

1) according to the webcomics Syrup is still alive
2) she still runs her store.
3) the candy girl is alive.

In other words, we can rule out all bad endings.

As for good endings, I know following:

1)Syrup still doesn't know that her assistent has magical powers

The only way for Syrup to know it is to look inside the crystal ball. It means she didn't look inside the crystall ball. But refusing to look inside the crystal ball, as far as I remember, will always lead to the same ending - "Syrup end".

If my assumptions are right and I remember everything correctly it means that "Syrup end" is the true ending.

Judging by Nami's webcomics "Another piece of candy" (http://another-piece-of-candy.thewebcomic.com/comics/2436573/trip-to-the-candy-s...) some endings are clearly not canon (assuming that the webcomics itself is canon).

1) according to the webcomics Syrup is still alive

2) she still runs her store.

3) the candy girl is alive.

I tested this, and you're right, not looking always goes to the Sy end. But if I remember correctly (which I probably don't, I have a terrible memory) there's a certain part of an ending (I forget which, maybe the Butterscotch one) where Sy looks but doesn't tell Pastille she knows. So maybe she's acting like she doesn't know in the comics? I don't fully assume the comics are 100% cannon either though. My best guesses are the Gumdrop and Butterscotch.  Either way I guess it doesn't matter too much?

1."Sy looks but doesn't tell Pastille she knows" Yes, you're right. There is such ending. I checked the game, it's in the Gumdrop's ending, the Butterscotch's ending and the Toffee's ending.  But in the Gumdrop's ending the candy girl travels with Syrop over the world, while Pastille runs the store. In the comics you can see that it isn't the case. As for the Butterscotch's ending, in said ending Syrop doesn't hide her recepies and it isn't the case in the comics. And as for the Toffee ending, in the comics Syrop doesn't look to enjoy her company very much. 


2."I don't fully assume the comics are 100% cannon either though." In game "Wandering wolf Trick" you can meet with Pastille and Syrop. If you talk with Pastille you can figure out that either Syrop still doesn't know or she pretends she doesn't know that her assistent can do magic.  And I think Syrop still runs her business because in all endings where she is out business Pastille left Syrop forever. I think we can also exclude possibility that Trick met them before Gumdrop was created because in the Toffee's endings we can see that Treat lives alone (instead of with Mochi) in a permanent house (instead of an igloo). In other words,  Gumdrop was created somewhere between "Lonely wolf Treat" and "Friendly bunny Mochi". "Wandering wolf Treat" happens latter than both of them, when Trick arrives Mochi already lives with Treat. Thus when Trick met Syrop Gumdrop probably already existed. Thus if we ignore the comics it leaves us with Toffee's, Butterscotch's and Gumdrop's endings as alternatives. Otherwise there is only the Syrop's ending.

This game is adorable!! 

Also I drew Toffee 'w' https://www.deviantart.com/nekonomiya/art/Color-Palette-Challenge-182-753184118

thank you so much!!!!!!

This game is adorable and, dare I say, super sweet!!

i need help running it

So adorable. Everything is sweet and cute! 

Is there an ending guide to this game?  I hate having to keep guessing.

in the art collection pdf it gives away what choices you should make for all the endings, yes :)

Well, I just guessed each time, so I got it all in about 5 hours.

Good game, though.

if only it were available on my device ;-;

I REALLY loved the game and ended up recording a couple videos of it for my channel! The first one went up just a few minutes ago so I thought that it was the perfect time to leave a comment! I loved the story and the different endings! I enjoyed that it wasn't over complex to get to the different endings and the art style is phenomenally adorable and very pleasing to the eye! Will definitely be a game I'll remember playing!

Not just that the art is super cute, the characters and the whole story are sweet as well! :) Each character had their own adorable oddness, and all the sugar-and-sweet puns are pretty funny in my opinion. <3 Gladly I recommended this visual novel in a short article on our blog and also uploaded a quick gameplay video. Hopefully some players found their way to your game via that. :)

Best wishes,
Sebastian

I've been  looking all over and I can't find the soundtrack to this game. Was it ever released? And if not are you planning or doing so?

there's a link on the page, sorry if it didn't stand out very well haha: https://mockoff.bandcamp.com/album/syrup-and-the-ultimate-sweet-ost

Aaaah this was really cute~ So far I already know 2 endings. Can't wait to find out about the other routes! Giving lots of kudos for this lovely game! <3

meep

i called a particular twist of the gumdrop ending BEFORE the gumdrop ending he was just a bit too stressed to see me think it wasn't her rival

This was so good!!!!

such a cuuute game >wwwww< I just finished all the endings Toffee's ending was kinda difficult. thank you for making this game <3 

such a cute game . it just made my day. really cute.. <3

Wow. It's a great game.

Lovely artstyle with cute and adorable and sweet characters. And Gumdrop is sweet... so sweet... the sweetest. If I were you I'd name here Sweet :D

And 10 endings. Wow! It's a lot as for vn. :) Gumdrops' is my favourite. But to be honest I tough it'll end with something more like a confession...   But this way is great too.  Very every-age-friendly :3

Hello? Can you please make an andoid/ ios version? I've been looking around all the internet and I couldn't find one...but since you're the creator, might as well ask you!

sure! i've actually really wanted to do mobile ports for my VNs, i just keep being busy with other things. nice to know people are interested though, it really makes the work feel worth doing haha

Hello Nomnomnami!

A great game you made here.  I made a review of Syrup and The Ultimate Sweet in my tumblr blog here. Also I made a post- playing review here. I hope this will give you my support in creating games!

-yummycake was here-

This is super cute! I love it 5/5

I was compelled suddenly to look for visual novels and i have to say that i am not disappointed with this game one bit! It was extremely quirky and cute not to mention great design, visuals, dialogue, etc

so um

i really super love your games, and this one in particular

i have played all of them, and have just finished the final ending on mermaid splash

your stories are so nice and your art is adorable and i have actually played this one about 5 times

im super excited for the 5th installment in the lonely wolf treat series

your games have actually inspired me to start trying to make visual novels of my own

i dont really have a game idea yet but i do have renpy so thats a start

all of your characters and games are great and i hope you continue making games in the future

do you have any tips for coming up with VN ideas or just making VN's in general?

anyways, i'm gonna go play romance detective again

and maybe this one after that

thanks for reading

<3

aww thank you so much!! the best advice i can offer to new vn developers is to start with something small that you'll be able to finish easily. good luck with your games! i'm cheering you on~

would it be okay if i cosplayed one of your characters??????

of course! feel free~
