Who doesn't want friends?

(Don't answer that. Just keep reading.)

The sequel to this game is out now! (Spoiler warning if you haven't played PUQFFAL!!! first): Myx's Bittersweet Musings


As Pippy the annoying cliché hyperenergetic rabbit, working at a maid cafe, at the age of 11, in a peaceful animal world where there is no more school, your goal is to make as many friends as you can (unless you don't want to, that is).

Will Pippy get enough friends to be satisfied?


This is the first demo/part in the series, so there will be more development with these characters! But this is still a full game!

(Please blame Pippy for giving the game an obnoxiously-long title.)

    Quem não quer amigos?

    (Não responda isso. Apenas continue lendo.) 

    A continuação desse jogo já foi lançada! (Spoilers para quem não jogou  PUQFFAL!!! primeiro): As Reflexões Meio Amargas de Myx Como Pippy, a coelha irritante cliché super energética trabalhando em um maid café, com 11 anos, em um mundo animal pacífico onde as escolas não existem mais, o seu objetivo é fazer quantas amigos puder (a não ser que você que não queira isso)

    A Pippy conseguirá amigos o suficiente para se sentir satisfeita?

    Essa é a primeira demo/parte dessa série, então terá mais desenvolvimento com essas personagens! Mas isso ainda sim é um jogo completo! (Por favor culpe Pippy por dar um titúlo detestavelmente longo para o jogo.)

    Detalhes:

    * Detalhes que não te contam muito sobre a história!
    * Uma incrível visual novel focada nos personagens!
    *
    Gameplay de 1 - 1.5 horas! (Não muito longa e não muito curta)
    *
    5+ CGs! * Mais do que 50 sprites dos personagens!
    * 5 finais! (Mas você quer fazer amigos... certo?)
    * 11,000+ palavras!
    *
    Pessoas animais que vivem em um mundo animal!
    *
    Interessante e (literalmente) colorido elenco de (4) personagens!
    *
    Amizades que florescem! * Pippy! NYAHAHAHAHA-- (O que)
    *
    E por último, mas não por isso menos imporante, aprenda lições valiosas!

    Avisos (SPOILERS)

    * Pássaros não são mamíferos. Isso totalmente não foi um erro da minha parte.
    * Vibrações na tela e possivelmente movimentos súbitos
    * Poucas escolhas e amigas podem ser feitas. (Qualidade sobre quantidade... Certo?)
    * Temas perturbantes e aviso de conteúdo: Conteúdo emocionalmente manipulativo, possivelmente sprites perturbantes, pequenas menções de violência.
    * Esse primeiro jogo foca no começo de relações e com quem ter uma relação (Então você pode pensar nele como a parte 1 ou uma demo para os jogos futuros)! Ainda não tem nada explicitamente romântico mas o jogo ainda lida com esses assuntos e seus problemas.
    * Ninguém reclamou até agora mas se você achar algo não legal sobre os meus jogos que passou pelo meu radar, por favor fale comigo. Obrigada por ver a minha página! Por favor me deixe saber o que voce acha e o que eu posso melhor para a próxima vez deixando um comentário e uma avaliação :D (todos são apreciados, uwu).

    Se você jogou pelo menos um dos meus jogos... Eu quero saber algo, hehe. (Isso só funcionará até o lançamento do terceiro jogo.)

Features:

* Features that don't tell you much about the story!
* An incredible story and character-driven visual novel!
* 1 - 1.5 hour long gameplay! (Not too long and not too short)
* 5+ CGs!

* Interesting and (literally) colorful cast of (4) characters!

Disclaimers (SPOILERS):

* Birds aren't mammals. That was totally not a mistake on my part.
* Screen shakes and possibly sudden movements.
* Few choices and friends can be made. (Quality over quantity... Right?)
* Unsettling themes and content warning: Emotionally manipulative content, possibly disturbing sprites, small mentions of violence.
* This first game focuses on the start of relationships and who to have a relationship with (so you can think of it as part one or a demo for the upcoming games)! There is nothing blatantly romantic yet, but the game still concerns these and their issues.
* I have yet for anyone to complain, but if you find something not cool about my games that slipped under my radar, please do contact me/talk to me.

Since I commented on your new game I also want to comment on here ^^

So... I don't even really remember how I discovered this game Q_Q It was pretty random and because the name was so funny I decided to play it, expecting a cute game about a silly rabbit xD The first game is tamer compared to serious themes in your newer ones so I wasn't that off, but I liked that it felt like there is more to the universe it's set in.

Looking back at it, I think Myx changed a lot!

You wrote that you hate the browser version because it's laggy but I hope you will eventually bring it back. I'm part of the people who don't like downloading stuff including games without knowing what I get in, and I remember I gave this game a go especially because I didn't have to download it.

I'm looking forward to see Pippy in the next game ^^

Yay comment :D

LOL that's awesome, I enjoyed reading how you found your way to the stories with this silly game XD
I want to remaster it at some point, but I feel it could lose its original charm... So we'll see!

The browser versions! I do have more of a love-hate relationship with them. On the one hand, it's great for you and others who're reluctant to download as you said. For that reason, I have tried making a browser version for the newer games before their launch, but it wasn't working ;;
It could be due to the number of effects I'm adding... But hopefully I'll figure something out!

Thank you for taking the time to comment!!! And Pippy looks forward to seeing you again too :3

Oh, I don't think you really NEED to remaster the old games (old... your first game is from a year ago...) unless you really want to. I know how you feel but I know lots of writers who fall into the trap of remastering old stuff with their new knowledge and kinda get trapped in a loophole of always wanting to get everything to their current level xD BUT YOU WILL ALWAYS GET BETTER! If anything I would just remake a few sprites with your current art style. Maybe for a bundle of all three games when the third one is done...?

The ATL effects will have an influence on the browser version but imo the worst offender for causing lag in the web build are the transitions. I am not sure if using ATL (changing alpha of an image) or using the pre-made renpy 'dissolve' statement would cause more lag. I don't think changing the position/rotation/zoom/etc of a preloaded character sprite should be that bad. What to avoid when creating a game for browser is something I am aiming to explore myself bc a lot of Renpy users are struggling with getting their game optimised for the web build. Your games aren't that big (I think the download for your latest one was around 130mb, MBM was even smaller) so you aren't doing anything wrong regarding your file sizes either. I think it's a 'renpy issue' and I wish they would create a better guide on how to optimise games for web. I hope that when/if they add the web build option for renpy 8.0 that it will be better since they usually add bug fixes/improvements with each version.

Ultimately, I think if people like your game they will also download it ^^ But you cant really know unless you tried. So maybe uploading just the first 10 minutes for browser and locking the rest behind the download could work. Sort of like a 'short demo', so that people can peak into the game. (As an example I would lock the browser version for ETPG at the point where Fritz lands on the house. That should make the game small enough to run in browser without lag and long enough for players to want to find out what happens next)

Pretty good! Some of the dialogue was pretty meta which I enjoyed

Thank you, hehe ><

i loved this! the story was... not better, that's not the correct word... deeper? as in, there was so much more to the characters and lore than i expected there to be. and i was pleasantly surprised! i expected it to just be a cute game about making friends, and while it is cute and it is about making friends, that's not all it is. great work! i'm currently playing the second game, will be letting you know about my thoughts once i'm done with that one :P

PS: to answer the question 'why would you even get this ending?' -> i'm a completionist. i HAVE to have all endings. it's a curse :')

Oh my goodness you don't know how happy your comment makes me!!!! Thank you for leaving feedback, I love reviews that comment about the story and characters :D

Hehe, I KNOW that completionist feeling too, it's truly a curse XD. Again, thank you super much for playing and for finding out that it was more than it seemed to be ♥

You're Welcome :)

This is such a well-made game for a short amount of time! I love the art and aesthetic (Pippy is so cute!), and it's an important message for young people to hear who are starting to choose which friendships cultivate, since making choices like this can affect their lives in rippling effects.

Keep writing stories, making games, and creating art! ♥

Aww, thank you so much for playing my game!!! I really do want people to learn about this issue since we see it so often in contemporary anime and television and media that it bleeds into real life. I would have loved to play this game when I was younger, I even would now, hehe.

Thank you again for your kind comment :D
