I.. don't know what to say after this..

I.. need more.. :O I need more artwork, where can I find more? Where are  you? where's Instagram? Artstation? anything hahaha this touched me deeply..  it's sweet, sincere, adorably cute, beautifully drawn.. 10/10 for me..

Hi! I'm so glad my work resonates with you! <3

I'm not on any socials these days (mostly for the benefit of my mental wellbeing) although I am considering joining pillowfort once they're out of beta.

very cute and nice

tho quite short haha

Is there gonna be a update soon ???

(+4)

I am currently aiming to release the sequel in late August. There are a lot of new art assets to do, so it will take some time to finish. ^^

(+1)

Ok im looking forward to it :p

It would be so awesome if this visual novel was on Android!

(1 edit) (+4)

The scenario is cute if a little contrived, but the writing is solid and the sketches add so much life to the story. I really appreciate how many expressions you drew out for the deer, even with "tired" variations. And on a personal note it's nice to see some recognition that us "bigger" folks also enjoy yoga!

They always say you should leave your audience wanting more, and you've definitely done that. Really looking forward to more from you.

Thank you! I try to have a fitting expression for each line, even if it means drawing a lot of faces.

Hello :)

I am A Furry VN Enthusiast, always wanting to try VNs that I haven't tried out there.

I enjoyed this one even though its short!

I am part of the official FVN Community Discord Server. If you ever want to promote your VN more [along with the planned sequels] or just wanna get to know and hangout with other Furry VN Developers to learn new stuff, get feedbacks, tips & networking, I highly recommend it out if you have discord. https://discord.gg/K3d2RVrWT9

This server has a lot of helpful people and a nice atmosphere. Over 70 VN Devs have joined so far. They'll be happy to help you, or if you're looking for a job, such as creating sprites for vn, you can find people to hire you.

I hope you will enjoy this server & maybe invite others too if you like it. I wish you luck for the future for your sequels! 

Cool! I'll keep it in mind. :D

Hello, I just want to inform you that your 2nd VN which is a sequel to this one here has been shared in the server. I hope you didn't forget about it :)

Thank you! I didn't forget, I just haven't had the mental energy to join a new community. It's been a rough year for me. Sorry about that! :c

This was short but so cute. I want more 

(+3)

I finished this and got upset that it was over ;o;

(+1)

Short and sweet story. Could it be possible to include an android version?

(+2)

Thank you! I am working on a browser version, which should also work on Android devices. It should be done before July.

(+1)

that “what you want” track is interesting...

(+1)

I needed a free track that evokes frustration and not knowing what you want. I think What You Want does that pretty well. ;D 

(+1)

XD

(+3)

This was short but great! I loved the tone and the story was sweet ^^

(+2)

Thank you very much! 🙏

Very Enjoyable! I feel though like only half the story is done.  Music selection seemed a bit more than needed for the situations, but not out of place, can't be picky here.

I liked it! The art style is really good, and the characters are good as well. Great job! :)

Thank you!

This game was so amazing! Thank you so much for creating this fantastic game. My boyfriend and I LOVED how it really spoke to our own experiences. I hope you don’t mind that we drew some fan art!

This is the final version? Or will you update and add more content in the future?

(+5)

As far as content goes, this visual novel won't be receiving any more updates. However, I plan to revisit the characters in another project in the future. 

(+1)(-2)

Oh, I see. So what's posted it's the finished content for this project, then.

(+1)

This was super cute and I loved it! I didn't want the story to end when it came to it. Also, the art style is awesome. Fantastic game! Looking forward to what you'll create in the future :)

(+3)

Thank you! It was so cool hearing you reacting to the story as it unfolds!

(+1)

You are very welcome!

(+2)

This was such a sweet little story, very enjoyable to experience. And the art is lovely! I never expected to ship a deer and a bear, but here I am, way, WAY out at sea. :P

(PS: I gave this entry a shout-out on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight. :) )

(+1)

Aahhh, thank you so much!

(+1)

That was a fun and lovely experience, you really did a good work with the writing and the expressions. Loved the style as well. Good work

(+1)

Thank you!

(+2)

The 3 screenshots on itch are such moods haha

(+1)

Oh my god! I love this! its such a great start! Have you considered making this into a full visual novel?

(+2)

Thank you! I'm planning to stick to short fiction for now, as I'm much better at it. It will also allow me to explore a broader variety of topics. I intend to write more shorts with the Deer and the Bear, though!

(+1)

Id love to read more with those two! I relate to deer on an emotional level...

(+1)

a very cute and heartwarming VN x3 I really like it

(+2)

Oh has I stumbled into a good looking Vn?

Ngl the art style looks really good.

(+1)

Glad you like it!

(+1)

Very cute story. I very much enjoy it. Keep up the good work! :D

(+1)

Thank you!

(+2)

Omg i absolutely love it! Such a cute story and the characters are super cute and lovely! I reeeally need more hehe

(+1)

I do have plans for a sequel later this year ;D

Nice work. I do love the short story VN format. 

Thanks!

(+1)

Ngl I almost thought it was Yogi Bear lol

This is so adorable, I really enjoyed playing! And as a fellow freelance artist, the MC is super relatable...

(+1)

Thank you!

Definitely needs a Android port.

I want to make an Android port, but since some things work differently on Android, it's going to take some time and thinking to accomplish. :D

Theres an app called joi play on the app store

it let's you play Ren'py games that dont have Android support (among other types of games)

:D

it is very adorable and cute and made smile.

Aw, thank you!

Very cute. One thing: When I right click to save, the deer's head is still in that menu.

Thanks! The deer haunts the game menu, as I failed to get the sprite system to do what I wanted, so I made some custom code that broke a few things. I'll do better next time!

super cute

Thank you!
