Lily Kingston has just graduated from college and is trying to find a new job! Lost and alone, she's helped out by her uncle, who is the owner of a fancy Italian restaurant. She begins working there as a waitress even though she has no experience. Clumsy and yet endearing, she tries hard at her new job and is often helped by her attractive male co-workers... Could one of them win her heart or will their secrets threaten a budding relationship...? A slice-of-life visual novel, or interactive story game, about a group of people working in an Italian restaurant. Change the ending of the story through the choices you make and learn more about all the characters and their daily lives. (It's also probably worth noting that this game was made in just one month.)

Cross-post from the last section of your survey:

The post-prologue was a really big surprise. But I really liked the first part too!

I didn't expect the post-prologue to turn out how it did and cuz of it I felt like it's a bit too long.

Also - I tried to make everything connected with Angelina and still I ended up with Ethan's ending :(

"Do you know how much just one of these games cost-"
"Oh come now, Ethan. It's not that big of a deal, is it?"
"Are you kidding me, Pierre? They just broke about 150 dollars' worth of financial gain!"

I always hold in extremely high regard people who offer their games for free. In such cases I always urge at least including some sort of donation function. Besides advertising and so, money is the fastest and easiest way to thank the developer after all.

Our team is very much about trying to have a nice, healthy balance between commercial games and free games. The latter can be very interesting because when the game is free, more people get to play it and there's nothing stopping someone from immediately deleting your game if they don't like it. If I didn't have to worry about paying for food, gas, and other needs, I'd release *all* my games for free, but alas. :(

Right now we really don't need donations, but we have a big game that's been in production since last June that will cost money to buy once it's released. The best way (in our opinion) for players to thank us is to give us feedback on what they liked/didn't like about the free games. And then supporting us by purchasing our commercial works once they're available would be great, too. :)

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…
