Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
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.

get the soundtrack HERE!!
- 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 ;)

- 2/7/2016 - there's now a web version of the game!

really enjoyed this game great art and lovely characters well done here is my playthrough
add portuguese translation please!!!
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
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
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??????
Toffee is such a precious babbyyyyyyy!!! I need plushies of him right away. ♥♥♥♥♥
hmm... i've never seen this before. generally my advice is to just try re-downloading it in case something went wrong? sorry that i can't be of more assistance!
Yeah, I've been having the same problem too... I extracted the zip file, opened the game, and got the same message. Happens every time I re-download. I think it's something about my anti-virus/software deleting "syrup.exe" because it identified it as a possible security threat.
Great VN, I think you should add this to the spinoffs in the Lonely Wolf Treat series, due to Treat's cameo and the fact that said cameo was acknowledged in Friendly Bunny Mochi. Also, how come you added the webcomic to the spinoffs but not the VN?
Apart from that, it's great!
oh! i actually made syrup and the ultimate sweet first, so it's strange to call this a spinoff of the treat series... first kiss at a spooky soiree is in the same universe too and that's not listed either. looks like i need a wiki page or something lol
Wow, I didn't know Syrup came first, so you decided to make an entire game series based around a minor character? That's awesome!
haha yeah i think treat mochi and moxie actually existed before i finished syrup, then i ended up putting treat in this game since i needed an extra character for the snowy mountain and she fit really well. i'd planned all along to make a game/series actually starring treat, it was lucky that everyone was so in love with her instantly anyway hahaha
This game made me gayer.
cuuuute loved the nonbinary cat
im gay and so is this game 10/10.
Cute cute cute! I love your art style, and I thought this game was thoroughly charming! I thought the characters were perfect too. I'll be playing more of your work!
Hey Nami, me again. Is it ok if i get permission from you to make a fan comic for this and send it to you when it's done?
of course! i'd love to see~
I thought the graphics were incredibly "sweet" so I downloaded the game.
But I did not expect so much fun and such a charming story!
Every single character is so lovable. I really enjoyed this experience.
Thank you for making this! It's really amazing!
I get all the endings less the worst ending. Wow... I never thought on that. By the way i loved this game. Its really great and cute! :333333 S2
This game is soooo charming and I love it so very very much !!!
This was such a cute game and a nice story, made us laugh! We would've liked to see more expressions and poses from the characters, and maybe more detail in the backgrounds, but overall, it was such a kawaii narrative and characters! We're excited to play more games by you!
Me and Connor of D&C dating really loved the game!! ^u^
Is there a way to get an alternative ending to Gumdrop's route with her short hair?
nope sorry, you can't get her ending if you give her to butterscotch
Is there any way to completely reset the entire game, resetting all your progress and such?
you'll have to delete your persistent save files, i think renpy stores them in two places on your computer? that's all i really know, hope it helps!
Hello, I'd like to play this game in Korea and I am mac user...
Do you have any plan to... make one...???
God, it's so hard! I've gotten every end except Toffee's. He alludes me yet,
yeah, it was difficult for me as well until I found a way! If you pick the right choices that hints towards to Butterscotch's route, make sure that when coming towards the end of the play-through, Syrup got the crystal ball from Butterscotch and she is then later alone in the store, pick the top choice, "Look at the crystal ball" as the bottom choice would just lead you straight to Syrup's Ending. After that, you then click on another top choice, "Of course" when Toffee asks Syrup to come with her to see Treat(the bottom one would lead you straight to Butterscotch's Ending). By doing this, you will be able to get the Toffee ending.
Yeah, the funny thing is, right after I posted that, I went back to the game to give it one more go, and I got it immediately. All I needed to do to unlock Toffee was complain about them haha.
- The art style attracted me to this game. I love the art.
The witch music in this game is SO good. Who does your music?
it seems that the only ending i know how to get is the gumdrop ending. can you help?
OMG just started playing and i got to the part where they see treat. AWESOME (Cameo?). I LOVE YOU NAMI
Until Next Time -Me
Just wondering, but do you plan to make the ending guides available for free at some point? If not it's fine.
if i give everything away, where's the fun in that? ;)
there are let's plays that show how to get the endings if you really need it though haha
Hey, played your game and loved it....also kinda did asmall series of gameplay about it
Really cool concept and funny as well
1º EP -
HOPE YOU ENJOY
THERE NEEDS TO BE ANOTHER ONE PLZ
This game probably is my favorite VN I've played off of itch.io so far. I am having issues with finishing Toffee and Pastille's routes. If you could make a walkthrough at some point, that'd be great, though that's probably in the art collection thing so perhaps my question is invalid. I'll think about popping you those 2 bucks sometime!
yep, the art collection has ending guides in it! sorry that those ones were a little tough haha
ah, yeah it's not an official translation (as in the people who did it never contacted me) sooo that's why it's not here haha
