Oh. My. God. I was DYING playing this, it is so good, my little lesbian heart couldn't take it. I love all the characters and their designs were amazing. Shout out to Ashe, my they/them queen! Cant wait to see what comes next in future updates! >u<

I FOUND ALL THE DRINKS!!!

Sorry we didn't see your comments sooner! But thank you so much for playing our game! We're so happy you enjoyed it! :)

The game keeps getting errors for me and I managed to get the Dead Sea one but I can't remember what the combo was for the Fire and Brimstone, that was just pure luck. What's the third combo drink? 


Thanks for this awesome game!

So I know nothing about alcohol and the monster themed drinks aren't really helping, but is the only drink I can make a red regular solo cup? It seems like that so far

I really like this game and I can't wait for updates!!

I actually loved playing through this game time flew throughout the whole play through all the relationships were super enjoyable. I couldn't decide between danny and theo as best girl I'm not sure if I'm 100% right but I don't think there's a true ending yet with any of the girls, since there might be a sequel? If so I'm definitely looking forward to it my full play through here:

Wow, thank you! Youtube says the video is still processing but I'm sooo excited to watch once it's up! There actually are romance endings for each of the girls, so counting the neutral ends there are 6 endings in total.

(1 edit)

:o I'm not sure if I got the neutral ends or the romance ends :o Thanks for responding! ^^ If i missed the romance endings please let me know the endings start at around 58:51 if you don't want to watch the full video

Hi! Thanks so much for playing our game! I watched your play-through and the endings you got were the neutral endings. There aren't any bad endings-- just neutral and good! :)

(2 edits)

 Edit: nevermind the good endings might be too tough for me ^^ I replayed to the ending where you have the 3 questions at the end with Danny I tried A LOT if not all of the combinations (might have missed a few) and got the same ending I don't think I'd make it through everything all over again for each one but great game! Hopefully someone will get them.

I believe we might upload a walkthrough in the near future! Thank you again for playing, Fluffey Panda!
