Are all first loves this bittersweet?

Quiet, shy and anxious, confessing to your crush takes every ounce of your courage. And when it all goes wrong, the last space left that is safe is the roof.

But when a kind hand offers a carton of lemonade, how will your paths collide?

  • A compact and emotional high school story
  • 10~15 minutes of gameplay
  • 1,500 words and 2 possible endings
  • Original story and art
  • Made in one week in the spirit of O2A2 2021

O2A2 stands for the week-long 'Only One of Any Asset' game jam. As the name suggests, only one of any asset could be used to weave together a game β€“ one sprite, one background, one piece of music, and so on. The jam also capped scripts at 1,000 words. Lemonade's finalised script ultimately exceeded the jam's limits, but this game would never have existed without O2A2, and I'm grateful to have been a part of it.

In the process of writing Ellie and Mei I fell deeply in love with their characters, and wished I could have explored their lives, shared memories and stories a little deeper. If it ever seems appropriate, maybe I'll revisit their little world again someday...

I love how you portrayed all these emotions in 10 minutes while many can't do so even in hours of content! Great job!

I thought my heart was dead, until this. xD

this is very wholesome, i love the characters alot, what caught me off guard was the sudden voice acting at the  end, it was gone, just really sudden, but was still really wholesome


I also did a video on it so enjoy! great work by the way

Thank you, that's lovely to hear! I hope you can resolidify yourself soon, friend πŸ˜‚

I have a question, why is it every time I click the download button something pops up that says

"leeporinee.itch.io says can't be bought"?

(+1)

This was such a cute story and the soft art style goes along with it. Really enjoyed it. Great job!

Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it πŸ₯°

This is a perfect slice of life story. For some reason, it makes me think not only about lemonade, but also about a hand-made apple cake, baked with love. I found only two bunnies... Did I lose the mini-game?

(+1)

There are far more than two bunnies hidden throughout this project πŸ˜‰ You may have to get creative to find some of them!

Adorable and can relate to the feelings. Kind of like these short VNs.

I'm so glad you do - they're the perfect material for a sunny afternoon! All of the O2A2 entries were great this year, so if you haven't already, give some of them a shot. I'm sure you'll find something else you'll like.

Love the art style! It's really cute.

Thank you, that's such a lovely compliment!
