That was so sweet. I especially *adored* the way you wrote Mei's lines, made me really fall in love with her character. And when the voicing came in, it was just <3 Altogether, I really loved it.

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 – 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...

Krystal Martinez - who brought Mei to life with her voice
Kevin Macleod - whose music saved this project from silence
Marron the rabbit - who is equal parts fluffy foot warmer, mascot and co-coder

hi. i was wondering if i can get an alternative download for this game? ive been wanting to play it for a couple months now but the download keeps failing. Thanks!
I love it so much. It was cute and I played it two times and enjoyed every bit of it. As a wlw this game is one of my favorites.
This was pretty cute! I liked the art.
So cute, so wholesome, I want a glass of lemonade now
Super wholesome and really wonderful game! The art was great and so was the music, they really elevated each other to make it a super great game! The voice acting was really unexpected but added to the game too! Not enough words to describe how wholesome, positive and nice the game is. Amazing job on it!
I was introduced to this game by my friend Masa Kei. It's a short story, but it's a wonderful story that shows the subtleties of the girls' hearts. I would like to see more of your work. I'm looking forward to your next work.
OMG! There's a moment in this game that hit us so hard and it's so unexpected. It's a sound queue that you don't see really in visual novel and i think it's great! My partner and I would read the dialogue for the video and when that moment happens, we were speechless. Really enjoyed everything about this.
I loved the game its so cute
I love how you portrayed all these emotions in 10 minutes while many can't do so even in hours of content! Great job!
that's a really cute visual novel :) art & music & writing are good :) the feelings of love warm hearts up :) voice acting is great :)
the voice acting caught my partner and i off guard and it was wonderful moment.
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
I have melted into a puddle of goo <3
A short game, but with a beautiful story! Congratulations on the game, very good.
This game is really amazing and it made me heart melt. I hope you keep making games just like this.
thanks for making this game! The story was really sweet and I loved the art style ^^
this was awesome and made me literally melt
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"?
lol nevermind I refreshed it and it worked:))
This was such a cute story and the soft art style goes along with it. Really enjoyed it. Great job!
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?
There are far more than two bunnies hidden throughout this project 😉 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.
