Blossoming Love is a freeware Visual Novel developed by newcomer team krispycat, using the Ren'Py engine. The demo was created for Yuri Game Jam 2015, and a full version of the game is tentatively scheduled for late 2016.
Ivy has been a shy wallflower all her life, and the discovery she's capable of magic has made her decide to take the first steps in changing her life around. Having just been accepted to Lirio Academy, a magical college, Ivy takes the first steps towards blooming into a more confident person...and meets three cute girls on her first day of school. Could love possibly be in the cards for Ivy as well?
The demo can be downloaded here.
The Blossoming Love demo contains examples of:
- Bittersweet Ending: Holly's route. Ivy realizes the girl she's falling for is a ghost and all that implies (that Holly is 'stuck,' that Ivy will age without her, that she loves a dead girl) but decides to go ahead and keep loving her anyway. Her promise to help Holly move on also suggests this for the full game.
- Limited Wardrobe: Most characters only have two outfits; their school uniform and a set of casual clothes. Ivy and Jasmine get a slightly bigger wardrobe with the former's pajamas and waitress uniform in Jasmine's route and the latter's waitress uniform, but there's still not much in variety.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Clover's hair is pink. Considering how everyone else has normal hair colors (with the exception of Jasmine and the teacher), it's probably dyed.
