A downloadable visual-novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux


Follow the life and choices of Mikami Rei, a 17-year-old trans youth, as she goes through the early steps of her transition.

Note from the Developer

This game is my first attempt at making a visual novel so it may break some important rules people often have for this type of games. Sorry about that in advance.

I was also in a hurry so all the characters have been made using a generator. A possible post-jam version should contain characters drawn by me as well as a much longer story.

I know that the game may give slightly overly rosy picture of the theme though. However, I thought it'd be better to show things in a positive light rather than include the so-called bad ends. There's still too many bad endings in real life and way too often.

I hope you enjoy playing this short visual novel!
