about the game

Story of a protagonist(boy? girl? nb? who knows)  who just wants love but is too lazy to actually go out and build meaningful human relationships. Fortunately telemarketers can offer pretty much everything.

Currently 4 endings with 2 more programmed but Im a perfecionist so those are unnacessible for now. More may come.

Kind of gave up on GUI, I will never be good at this

about the artist

Im glithch and I love procrastinating by making games and then procrastinating on making those games.

idk if youre going to respond but like the poetic dude ending is very confusing. Idk if it is a glitch in my system but whenever i play his route(no choices) I automatically get the very bad end and it goes to the squiggly line dialogue and I was wondering if that was apart of the comedic effect or it is a actual defect :)

Everything else was amazing though 

I was actually having the same issue as well, so I decided to go looking through the script to see what was the matter. It turns out that the squiggly man dialogue is part of something else and that it jumped to that dialogue due to not having anywhere else to go. After the line "You look at the notes in your hand and finally understand," it seems that there was suppose to be a choice of whether or not you thought the poetry was great or not, but one wasn't there even though there was code programmed for after you chose.  Since I have some experience in Ren'Py, I was able to code in the choice and attach it to the already programmed scenes they were supposed to lead to. After that I was able to get the ending to make sense and even looked at old videos of people playing through the game to comfirm that I attached the choices to the right scenes.

can you explain how to do this? i'd like to see the normal ending!

I don't know how to explain how do it exactly, but I can send you the one file I had to edit to fix the issue and have you replace the original one with my edited one.

I sign up just to leave a comment here because god. It's so good.

I was in a really bad mood today and I thought that this was going to be the best game to play to clear up the clouds, and honestly? I was right. Loved all the boys, loved this indirect shit talking of other stereotypical dating sims by using these tropes ( I kind of linked the Edgy Poet with Nageki from Hatoful Boyfriend because of the death thing, but who knows -- ), though I'm kinda salty because I -- I don't know how to find the fourth end. Weeps forever,, In any case, still love the game & my favorite boy is probably Rich Guy, hahh!! Keep up the good work <33

everytime i check out this page i notice a very old comment i never got a notification for and i know i have to reply because all of these make me so happy asdfg. so very late but thank you!

((rich guy is also my fav))

ok i really like this game! i got the rose ending, the cat love ending, and the introvert (same) ending. but i cant seem to get the last one. anything to trigger it?

thanks for making this game it's honestly one of my favorites

(+3)

Really nice game!

aaaah! thank you <3

Hi ^_^ So I finally checked your game out and even edit the first part of let's play on it. SOOOOO... Not my ordinary cup of tea, I be honest, cause I like something more dynamic. Even though I pretty liked it. ESPECIALLY Sam's and our POET guy routes. THE POET WAS SOO COOL, I liked kind of suspense in that storyline. Nice ^_^ And the ending. Yeah... my inner teenage emo kid was so pleased xD The whole atmosphere and idea of this game is pretty cute. Though I just wanted to quickly ask one thing about lgbt theme. Is it there only because our main character is of unknown gender? I'm kind of confused there xD Aaaanyway, I would love to see the end result. Good luck, and I wish your inspiration will never leave your side ^_^ 

(+1)

awww thank you for lovely gameplay im going to watch it whole in a second :D and yeah LGBT themes are there as i didnt really want to mess around with coding a choice for the player to be either a girl, boy or non binary (and i think that would kind of mess up the tempo) so i tried going the route of unspecified gender. 

okay then :)

and ehm.... sorry? xD

and considering the ending with the mailman. looks like you downloaded the version of the game before i updated the file so that route was unaccessible for now. dang too bad since its unfinished
