SYRUP AND THE ULTIMATE SWEET is a visual novel made for YuriJam 2015! it's about a candy alchemist, syrup, who one day finds a candy golem in her basement workshop. where did she come from?? who the heck made her????? GO FIND OUT!! did i mention there are 10 endings because. that's right. 10 endings.
content advisory: candy nudity. in some paths she gets eaten. in some paths characters die. there are a few quick screen shakes and flashes.
This is a really cute VN! After going through it and getting all the endings I just HAD to go to your other works.
Especially Lonely Wolf Treat. I often find myself replaying them to see if I missed anything. One of my favorites!
Oh yeah, I also gave Treat a German accent when I first saw her because I was like "Oh, this probably isn't an important character. Hey, I gave Toffee a Russian accent, I guess I'll give this wolf a German one since they're kinda opposites or something?"
And I shit you not I played up to Pt.5 of Lonely Wolf Treat with that accent. (Even though it was mostly a light accent)
Where was I? Oh yeah, I can't wait for more of literally everything.
You need to be really nice to Gumdrop and get the frozen ending (tell Butterscotch you hate her).
Spoilers: Instead of getting frozen you're rescued by Gumdrop, Treat, and Pastille. Butterscotch apologizes for almost getting you killed, if you tell her you still hate her, you are a monster, and get the worst ending :p
Honestly, the one complaint I have is that the Chocolate twins didn't seem to affect anything, which is sad, because I love their designs, but it takes a special kind of game to make me love every character the second they're on screen. Also, 3 things. 1: I love how their title screen sprites changed after you got their ending, 2: Yay enbie representation! And 3: Oh my gosh White Chocolate is a male who wears a skirt and it's never treated as weird or abnormal I LOVE it!
Much like all your other Visual Novels, this is an amazing title that fits into your large connected web of characters, which is always an added plus. The music is very "sweet" if you catch my drift, and it adds a very pleasant feel to the experience.
All of the characters are memorable, and have their own adorable endings for each other (except for the assistant, which I have not found an ending for yet). Plus, the fact that you have connected Treat into the main story gives me hope that these characters could show back up in future games involving treat.
Overall, a very good VN with a large assortment of endings (Haven't found the one after Bad End 2, and the one after Gumdrop's Good Ending), a memorable cast of characters with witty dialogue usually found in your titles, and an adorable story that isn't afraid to get a bit dark at times
Earlier in comments you said that all endings are canon. Did you mean all GOOD endings? Because if "Treat" games are canon then bad endings (for example, "Candibal") didn't really happen (we can see that Gumdrop is alive, Syrop is alive, Syrop still owns her shop, her shop still works and Pastila still works with Syrop). Thus making bad endings non-canon.
I got all the endings, and I LOVED this game. Also, I really wish you'd make more games for this series! It kinda scared me when I went to eat some candy and noticed that Syrup and I had the same color lollipop. ( XD ) Apart from that, it was a really well made game. If your a person scrolling through the comments, DOWNLOAD THE GAME!! It's a great game and you should download it. Sorry for being annoying... Welp, there's my review, BYE. :3
I enjoyed playing this game a lot. I got this game a while back, but I never knew about the many different endings until after I thought about it... When I played all the endings, to the worst ending.. Idk how to explain it, but the worst ending made me think of what would happen after... It's so sad, it makes me want to make a comic about it. (note: I never made a proper comic (im trying it out tho) XD loool I might make some fanart instead idk :P <3) I guess what I'm saying is that the scenarios you created were amazing, and inspiring really. The artstyle is perfect for a game like this and the endings were incredible and adorable, and sad (I have mixed feelings, but i'm saying that I love it) Keep it up, I look forward to playing more games you make. I played up to dreaming treat and I just can't wait for the next one. Well done <3
This is one of my favourite Visual Novel Games!!! I love the amount of choices and attention to detail, especially after the player tries to guess Toffees gender, and when you play again, another option pops up. The way the characters in the main menu change is a nice feature.
The art is so cute and lovely, it's my aesthetic to look at it. I love that the story is friendship based, and has such satisfying endings.I want to see mooore of these amazing cutsie characters
