I loved playing this on my phone, Pastille will forever be my favorite

one of my fav games

i love this game so much!! i just played starry blossoms and found this, absolutely beautiful!! im completed stuck on how to get the third ending though, but fun nonetheless!! Toffe4lyfe


gumdrop and butterscotch have my soul

10/10 smash like 4 butterscotch

toffee is cute too

Short but cute game.
The game works fine in german language with Debian Jessie 32bit on my AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ from 2009.

so i wanted to download it but my windows10 said it might give my computer a risk of getting hacked, help??

Tell the computer to ignore it. That happens with a lot of itch.io games.

now i suddenly want candy



This game was great! Sweet, if you will.


Pastille my beloved.



I loved it! You made many great stories.

I was trying to collect every ending, but some bad decisions (for example, eat the girl) were so hard to make.

I loved it! I think it would be better if there were romance paths though.


Neat little story. I'm new to visual novels but I enjoyed the little adventure. My only issue is that Syrup already kind of had a set personality, so when I made choices that went against said personality it kind of felt less like character growth and more like "Yeah, pretend that other stuff didn't happen". I guess my only real complaint is that it wasn't longer, heh. 

Good work on the visuals as well (I played the game muted since I'm I often only use itch.io in class, so I can't really comment on the audio). Other than Syrup's abrupt character shifts, I liked the characters and their interactions. They were kind of generic and I think Treat, and to an extent the Chocolate twins, were extremely under utilized (the main problem when implementing side characters in such a short story) but everyone fit the aesthetics and theme pretty well so I can't complain. I'd give this a decent 7.5/10. Good job.

I love the art, endings and characters!! Sryup is simply amazing and I love the characters dynamics, overall 10/10 game 


Very beautiful. honestly that's said for all of your games, deep meaning, excellent art, and memorable characters.

I'm having a hard time trying to unlock illustration number 27 if anybody has any tips please I would be so grateful.

That's... not much?

looks like there was an upload error during my last update, thanks for bringing this to my attention! it should be fixed now :)

Thank you!


I love this game and characters design! Im so happy there's Polish translation <3

i... think i'm in love?

Super cute and colorful. 

Cameo by treat... nice




This is a really awesome game but I'm so confused on how to get 4 of the endings 😫

what endings do you have?

I have them all, I can help you.


I loved this game so much that I bought it on the switch just to play it anywhere!


I am planning to play all your games in order of release dates and this game is honestly so cute yet discusses important topics, I got all the endings! I love the character development and art :) Excited to play Lone Wolf next! <3

im dying- just finished starry flowers and there is another game~~ I love this^^

ya conseguí todos los finales! Nuevo juego terminado <3

This was adorable!

(1 edit) (+1)

tengo el juego el juego en nintendp switch, pero no esta en español  ; /

Wow, I just finished getting all the endings and I love this story!

I'm wondering, are there any hints as to Syrup's orientation?  I kept expecting to hear it hinted at, but if it was then I missed it (possibly by accidentally skipping  a scene.)  


i think the only direct reference to it in the script is her saying that (spoilers!!) pastille made gumdrop to be her type haha

thanks for playing my game!!


It seems that you have to escape from the ice cave with Butterscotch to reach Toffee's ending, but that ending assumes you got rescued from the ice cave. Is this an inconsistency, or am I missing something?


it's an inconsistency that i left in to make the toffee ending easier to reach. you're actually the first person to point it out... lol

Yay, I'm special! Your games are super adorable and I look forward to the next one.

The game is so beautiful that I can't find anything to say.


 I don't even know if I could describe how much I love your games! Your games opened my eyes to the universe of visual novels!

 Your line is one of the cutest I've ever had the pleasure to meet, your characters are charismatic, cute (in appearance and personalities), and not shallow, like others that are just for fan service. I like how you portray the different sexualities, and I also love how, despite being visual novels, your games are not limited to romance. And more than passion, your games bring love! There are couples, friends, families, and there are also problems, which are solved by the love your characters have for each other, by how much they really care about each other! Your work is perfect, at least in my eyes. I can see the effort and care you put into your games, and I can't even tell you which is my favorite game or couple, because they are all so adorable and wonderful! The reason I commented in Syrup and the ultimate sweet is because it was the first game of yours I met, but if it wasn't for that I don't even know which one I could comment on, I love them all.

 I grew up watching my peers of the same age discovering themselves sexually, while for me these things were always so ... strange ... not be gay or lesbian, but be sexually attracted to someone, whatever the sex. And although I am still young, I think maybe I am just asexual, or semi-sexual, and your games, besides amusing me and making me think about so many things, help me to feel better about myself, whatever my sexuality is! Your games help me a lot, in many ways, and help even more many other people as well! I hope your works continue to be as amazing as they are, that they reach other people who need them, and that you shine more and more with your creations! Thank you for everything you do! <33333

(If you really read this, sorry for writing so much, and sorry if there are any typos, I speak Portuguese! Hahaha.)


wow, thank you for this comment! i'm so happy to read it!!

i've had many people tell me my games have helped them become more comfortable with their gender/sexuality, and it warms my heart every time <3 i mostly make games for my own entertainment, so it's a really nice bonus that they end up helping others this way too.

thank you for playing my games! i'll be sure to keep making lots more <3 (also your english was just fine! no worries~)


Hi, the  version of this game on the Google Play Store doesn't work on my new phone which uses Andriod 11. From what another dev has said this is because Google changed the way file permissions work. But from what I noticed from another game it should work with Android 11 if recompiled with the new version of RenPy.


thanks for letting me know--there are multiple new translations in progress right now so i'm expecting to update the game soon! sorry for the wait in the meantime.

daww i love this universe and all its characters sm!!



This was such a fun and cute game!!! I am still stuck trying to get one of the endings, but I was able to (somehow) find the rest! I love how each scenario is slightly different and there is different dialogue if you did something different in the beginning, and it really makes each character seem so real and unique!

This was an AMAZING game! Incredibly nuanced and fascinating, each option counts, introducing new dialogues and interactions you wouldn't see otherwise! The art is adorably amazing and by the time you've finished one ending, you have a certain fondness for everyone, which only increases as you collect all the endings.

This was the first time I never felt bored while going back to choose other options. In fact, I had trouble forcing myself to continue on one playthrough without continuously going back! Definitely my favorite game of the series so far!

Holy shit I remember playing this a couple weeks after it came out-
