UPDATE 6/9/16: Russian translation added. (Thanks to these guys!)

UPDATE 12/18/15: Post-compo version (v1.3.5) uploaded. Changes:

  • New art by ApplePaddle! Animated portraits even! There's a few CGs in there, too.
  • Slight bugfixes; No more magical lags at the start!
  • Correct Japanese! Now everyone, including me, will be confused of the title.

For Ludum Dare 33, with the theme "You Are the Monster".

The idea was supposed to be a reversed Tamagotchi, where you ask for things to the person taking care of you. Somewhere along the way, I got too into dialogues so.. this happened.

I was planning to join the compo, but then I haven't even written any dialogues during the last few hours, so I ended up in the jam instead.

Still fun though. Hope you like it!

P.S. You might get some lag at the start for magical reasons.

Hi, Thank you for this game, I loved it ! After finishing it I saw that a newer version was out with new graphs, does the story also change ?
I did a play game in french, check it out if you have some time :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyAQVLITpv0


I cried at the end. Honestly. All his options were so depressing, but the end... It killed my heart. Never before have i cried during a game. I came close a few times, but never quite got there.This was absolutely beautiful.


I really, really, really, enjoyed it! The animation its so great, and usually, the dating sims doesnt have an animation on it, just images changing.

Also, i love the history, and that hug on the end just got me. Its nice to see how the caracters change and grow up trought the game.

Love it!

(Ps: sorry if my english is bad, i'm from Brazil :p)

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed the game. :D

This game. Oh boy. The inner weeaboo comes out of me when I play this game. It's cute, and the girl character is likable and adorable. I loved the reverse-psychology of this game in the fact that it's YOU being taken care of. I also like the two endings. Both of which reflect well on your character not believing in himself, and both endings don't feel out of place. Animation was cute and nice.

Good job! I'd like to see more of these types of games!

Thank you! Love the video. Hope to make more soon! :D

Great game, great concept...!!! An incredible well made little game. I loved it ❤❤❤❤❤

Thank you! <3

I probably seem like a total idiot, but how do I launch the game? There's no .exe file or anything that looks like it could be a launcher. What file should I be clicking on? I have the version 1.4 file.

Hello! There should be an executable in there alongside a data folder after you unzip the file. Maybe it got corrupted? Have you tried re-downloading it?

There isn't an executable file in the 1.4 version, but I downloaded the windows 64 version and that has the executable file. I tried redownloading version 1.4, but there still wasn't an executable file. What's the difference between the windows 64 file and the version 1.4 file?


Nevermind, I downloaded it again and it's all good now! It didn't download properly last time!

Yay! Glad it worked. :D

Really cute and short game. I did a let's play on it! ^_^


Thank you for playing! Glad you like it. :D

Doesn't look like it's possible to get a heart on every single day. I've tried every combinations of actions for the very first day and nothing gets a heart.


I love this.

(Edited 1 time)

on windows 7, v1.4 just shows the unity screen, then flashes light gray before dimming to a dark gray. old win 64 version works fine though...

EDIT: Nevermind, my Antivirus Quarantined a game file.


antivirus is the real monster

I really like this game, it's really cute ^^

Hope you'll do more games like this one ^w^

Thank you! We definitely will.. SOON....

very cute

Is this kid friendly? It looks really cool!! But I don't know if I can get it cause' I'm a kid! Thanks!!!! :D

There's.. a few bad things in there. :P

Oh ok NVM thanks though!

(Edited 1 time)

This game is absolutely adorable! The shaky animations are so endearing. That was the greatest five minutes of my day!

Seems quite cute in a lot of ways, but the wobbly animation thing gets to me really badly! Specifically the speech box/bubbles and the text inside. The upper gui wobble is fine but man, the other stuff makes me seasick :<


Thank you! Ahaha, I was experimenting on how to make the UI feel a little more alive. Sorry about that. :P

I'm still getting the same error as Boltaanjistman, no buttons work in the select language screen, even after remapping all of them over and over. Any tips or help, please? :/ I can play the old one just fine but the newer one won't work.

Hello! Did you download the game just now? I updated it a while ago, and I'm quite sure I fixed it already.. can you try redownloading it? If it still happens, try waiting a few seconds before picking a language.


I downloaded the newest version now, and it works just fine! (though the language select takes a bit of time) Thank you a lot for the help! :D

I cant get past "select language"

It should be working now. :D

Allright! thanks. it works great. I still wonder what happened though.

It's really cool but I had to play the (old) version as v1.4 doesn't work for me ;_;


Sorry about that! Should be working now. :)


Awesome. Love the animations in this version!

Awesome game, but when I finished playing it I suddenly felt cold inside again. 7/10 for that, this hurts my no lifer feelings.
