This game rocks! Sad I couldn't pick from a male or female protagonist but what evers. Anyways does all the action only play out in one scenery piece aka the restaurant?

Did you play through the post-prologue? There is more of the story that occurs in places other than the restaurant and features a different protagonist. Once you've cleared the prologue, the start button will go to the post-prologue part of the story.

THis reminds me of that anime, Wagnaria. Where an enstranged group of friends work at a fast food restaraunt in Japan. Main character, a boy, has a fetish for "small things", the girl he's "doting on" is short as hell and acts like a kindegartener yet is older than main character, a ceemingly normal blonde who carries around a katana, even while at work, two cooks, one who has crush on katana girl and is super emo, and a freak who happens to know EVERYTHING about EVERYONE, ANYTIME. Finally we got the main girl, whose got androphobia.

Ya.... it's hillarious, go watch it..

Yeah, I found them after playing, but I doubt I'll play it second time to see a different ending, I never replay games.

Anyway, good job! I was really surprised when I read that it was done in one month.

Each character's route is actually completely different and has almost nothing in common with other routes... So it's not just the ending that's changed. But I understand.

Thanks again~

Well-executed and creative subversion of the otome vn genre. A must read if you're looking for something that breaks the mold.

In my opinion the story is too much of a (boring) soap opera (even the post prologue part of it). Though the game's name already suggests, it's all about love, it could have been less borrowing the cliche. Furthermore there are too little real choices, so playing this game is all about reading and tapping your space key to get on reading, which becomes quite annoying over time. Due to this, replaying the prologue part by taking other choices, wasn't as much fun as hoped for, because you have to…
