While exploring you land on a island to check out a new town where you run into a girl/boy (Depending on who you decide to play). You are unable to communicate with them since you don't know the language, but you would love to chat with them again.

You can also visit the other town folk to help quiz you or even drop by the museum to learn more about Japanese history and culture. All of this leading up to finally dropping by the park to try and ask them out on a date.

How do you save? There is no real directions or menu... :/

sorry about that. If you hit the esc key you can enter the menu to save or load your game. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Want to buy this game, but is there another version than windows? Willing to pay double if you have in-browser, android or linux version.

sorry, at the moment it's windows only. When we have time I would love to port this to OSX and browser base, but that would be some time down the line at the moment.

we recently released a Linux version and OS X! These will be added to the existing sale if they are not already.
