I learned about Heartache 101 ~Sour Into Sweet~ a little while ago, and started playing it yesterday. It's a freeware romance game being written in English through the RPG Maker XP program by Flowerthief, the same person who made The PK Girl and Idolcraft. A beta version is available at http://rpgmaker.net/games/3229 . It will work on a decent Windows computer.

I'm rather impressed so far. The basic gameplay is a slightly complex boy x girls harem game, with several stats and money to manage, board game style gameplay which essentially generates random meetings with NP Cs, and a time limit. There's a few elements which aren't worksafe (it's clear that the convenience store sells porn), but this game is definitely not obscene. And it's one of the few dating simulations which encourages fans to mod the game. People are free to use different characters, storylines, and music.

If I didn't already make it clear, there's already a TV Tropes entry for this game. There's only a modest number of freeware romance games and freeware visual novels which have more than a passing reference or two on this site.
Doesn't look like there's an entry for it here...

There is. It's in Video Games/ instead of Main/.

Shouldn't there be a redirect until the off chance something is actually made in the Main namespace?

Probably. I only made a redirect in main from Heartache101 because I figured nobody would want to type out the full title.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
