This is so cute! The characters are both very interesting, and there was a neat feeling of 'scale' almost, with a lot left unexplained. Which was good! The polish and art was amazing as well. Loved it!
very cute! I loved the characters and their insecurities were very believable and relatable, plus they were just very very endearing. Thanks a lot for such a fun little game!
this game look good , but I wanted to know if there is a way to delete the text typing sound without lower the sound in the option
because if I lower the sound in the option their is other important sound that are lowered
this sound always give me headache , I always find a way to delete it in the games I play, but I've never do it in renpy
I know renpy a little , so if you can just tell me the code line and the file to edit
thank you :)
Hi there! There's no way to delete it but the "sound" option so I would suggest just lowering that for now.
I could have sworn we coded it to have it be connected to the "voice" option slider, but I may be getting confused with other games of mine.
Still, you're not missing out on any other "important" sounds-- the only other sounds in the game are the sound effects at the beginning of the game and nothing else. After a certain point, all you have is music!
Also, sorry I didn't reply to this sooner-- I don't get notifications for this game right now.
Hiya~Just wanted to say i recently finished playing this game and utterly adored it. The characters are so sweet, the art is stunning, you guys should be super proud of yourselves. Thank you for making such a wonder VN <3
I've just played the game and, same as with Tomai and AWOO, it left me with a silly smile on my face! I just love the feeling of positivity of your games, where love and friendship are always deeply linked, highlighted by the bright colors and the soft, rounded lines of your art. Your sex scenes are also always joyful and pure, a delight to read!
I'm looking forward to the final version of AWOO, and to everything else you two will deliver in the future!
Thank you so much! Both I (DCS, the artist) and Arcade Party (the writer) are always really happy to read comments like this-- because so much of that stuff is really important to us! And I know I'm personally very flattered that you've played not only this game-- but Tomai and AWOO too! Ah, it's so awesome to hear!
Thanks a ton for taking the time to leave us this awesome comment, it does the heart good! <3
Sorry if this is spam but itch.io has no way of sending PMs. :(
I'm from Soulsoft Electronic arts. ( https://soulsoftea.itch.io ) Sooo I'm thinking about hosting a Game Jam on itch.io. My idea is a bara game jam which I'll call "BARA JAM", and I'm trying to see how much interest there would be in such a jam, and if it would be worth hosting. Would this be something you'd be up to participate in or even co-host?
I'm thinking about having it in October and lasting 1 month.
I made a thread on LSF with more details here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51373
I'm really trying to see if this is a viable jam that people would even want. I hope so! I'll obviously be submitting an entry as well. =) you can email me here firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a ton for letting us know-- unfortunately I'm (DCS) way too busy to help host a jam-- let alone be in another jam so soon! @_@ But I think Arcade Party MIGHT be interested in helping out hosting-- so they will contact you separately via e-mail once they decide.
We'll keep this comment up so other people who might be interested can see-- but for now both Arcade Party and I have to simply say; good luck with everything!
Hi DCS! No of course, no problem, I'm just glad you heard me out and passed the message along to your partner Arcade Party.
Honestly, it may not even be in October as it depends on interest, but also a friend mentioned that BaraJam's proposed duration would overlap YuriJam. And although my spidey-senses say that those wanting to participate in YuriJam wouldn't probably not participate in BaraJam anyways, I could be wrong and YuriJam IS still one of the BIG ones.
In anycase, I appreciate you leaving this up and if you just help spread that word, that's all I could ask for. ^_^ Thanks!
I would actually be someone who would participate in Yurijam over Barajam;; So whomever gave you that warning was right! (Here's the game I helped make for last year's Yurijam by the way.) November would probably be your best best imo, otherwise sometime in 2019?
Good luck with everything!
Hi DCS, so a bunch of other VN creators have reached out stating that they would be more inclined to participate should BaraJam be in Nov. So I think it's safe to announce that I'll be hosting BaraJam to begin Nov.1st instead.
Also I didn't know you participating in YuriJam as well! Your style is very much your own and could never be mistakened for anyone elses. It looks like a wonderful submission ^_^
Absolutely loved this small package of a game! I was really wowed by the effort and polish that went into a game made in such a short time frame, from the colorful artwork to animations and even little floating particles in the background. It was absolutely sweet and I really enjoyed the ending. It's hard to describe what about the visuals was so nice, but I liked how each scene filled the whole screen so well. It's really incredible what the team did with RenPy congrats!
Hi hi! Thanks a ton for your comment; we're both really glad to hear you liked the game so much! This game was super fun to work and I know that (the artist) just had such a fun time getting creative with the visuals within a time frame-- seeing what I could get away with, hehe.
So thank you again for playing and for your wonderful comment!
I really liked the art style in this one. The backgrounds, the sprites, the animations...really elaborate and well done! The music was also pretty fitting.
A PG-13 option would have been nice, although I can understand that it just wasn't possible within the timeframe of the jam.
I want an part 2
Well-- we left the game opened ended just in case; but unfortunately Arcade Party (the writer) is going on a hiatus soon so I don't suspect we'll be in a place to make a sequel anytime soon.
If you like Yarrow Valley, I highly suggest you check out Tomai, which was our submission to Yaoijam 2017. (I would also recommend just about any other game in either of our catalogues as well!)
We're glad you love Yarrow so much though!
Loved this game! Short and sweet!
I was so glad to see how Havi and Yarrow were able to communicate their worries and be able to understand the other more. And of course the art is lovely as always!!
Another great game from ArcadeParty!!!
Just wanted to pop by and say I was really impressed by Yarrow Valley. It was a short BxB VN with the right amount of sex and sweetness. Although I don't think there was the tension/drama of *not* being able to end up with Havi, it was adorable and I was just glad no matter what choices you made, it ALWAYS worked out. (if only life was the same way right? lol)
Also, I have to say, the art and attention to detail...WOW. Like from the multicolored particles floating subtly, to the animations and even distinct artistic choices that make Yarrow Valley's aesthetic uniquely it's own (like the pure black monolithic forms, set behind rainbow flower fields all infront of multicolored stars...! geez).
So polished, so refined. Glad we were both part of the same jam!
Hey there! I'm the artist, DCS, hi! (I worked on this game with Arcade Party, I drew the whole thing and helped with coding, story, etc, and I'm usually the one to reply to comments for us!)
We're both very happy to hear you liked the game! The particle affects were something I had a ton of fun with and I just wanted to use them everywhere since I figured hey, alien planet is the perfect setting to finally use this awesome Ren'py feature!
Thanks a ton for playing and thanks a ton for your awesome comment! We really appreciate it!
Minty plant much?
The music and art... and really just the general aesthetic of this game is absolutely phenomenal! Love Havi in particular he is such a sweetheart.
Thank you, we really appreciate hearing that and we're glad you enjoyed! :D
Havi is a wonderful guy, one day I wanna be as relaxed as him. <3
just played the whole game, and even if it was short and honestly unexcepted, it adored the whole thing!! The two are sooo fluffy and loving as a couple~ The sec scenes were just amazing!! I love the scenarios and backgrounds and the music fitted so well too!! Once again both of you out did yourselfves and it was amazing!! more than happy to keep playing all your future games!! Thank you so much for providing such amazing content each and everything for us!!! Keep up the good work and more than happy to see more content of this two wonderful boys!! *w* <3333
