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 ;)

same here man

Obrigado por colocar a opção em português, eu estava tendo dificuldade em encontrar jogos com esse idioma, e o jogo é simplesmente maravilhoso, adorei

Nami I love your games, there is a plot that puts us like we are inside the game, and the aparecencia is so beautiful, sorry if it is wrong, this is translated by google translate


wowww

Nami, are your web-comic "Another piece of candy" and "Treat" games canonical for the universe of "Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet"?

treat games are canon for this universe, another piece of candy is its own canon because i have more freedom that way.

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.

yeah to put it simply, the good endings are canon. gumdrop is alive in the treat games so she didn't get eaten haha.

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 LOVE THIS GAME! My favourite ending is Pastille's, I love him and Gumdrop so much. Also the fact that you made this game before Lonely Wolf Treat and Treat is in it, YAY!


PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CONTINUE THIS GAME! I read all the comics for it on your Twitter and can't get enough.

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

Aw this is so cute.  There should definatly be a fandom for this!

(+1)

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME! THE REFERENCES TO THE LONELY WOLF TREAT SERIES ARE REALLY GREAT! I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF YOUR GAMES NAMI!

(+1)

i made this one before making lonely wolf treat so technically it's the other way around :) thanks for playing! glad you're enjoying them hehe

(+1)

I never knew that! But still, love all your games and I always will.

i has a question.How do i change the languege ?It's in spanish and i cant read it ;-;

(+1)

oh, you just downloaded the wrong file, sorry for the confusion! the one you want is called syrup-1.2-pc.zip

(+1)

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

Time to check out the comics.

Spanish version for mac? ":(

(1 edit)

You can use Wine in order to run said game on Mac. Nami can't give you Mac port because she uses game engine that was created to work directly only on Windows.

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

But it's really funny as the very first ending to get

look like a cute Warrior warning center :3

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 :)

(+1)

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
