Played as Dragon, James and Kitten so far, kudos for these gripping stories! Seeing both sides really gives each pair a lot of depth. It's well written and the characters are believable - thanks for sharing this :)

Just got through all the routes, and I just gotta say...

THIS IS SO GOOD!! Not only is the art beautiful and gorgeous to look at, but the well written characters and their personalities make the game such a treat to enjoy. I find their relationships cute and love the fact we can see both sides of the relationship!

You've not only fleshed out the characters so well into believable people, the world itself is so interesting, the intricacies of it felt so natural to read!

You and your team did an amazing job in creating a well-contained game that felt whole and professional. Well done you guys!

I'm really enjoying this game! I just finished my play through with James, and it was so cute and sweet. I'm going to play as Dragon next, I think. The art is beautiful, and the story is well written. Although, I did come across some typos and errors I wanted to share with you--if that is okay. Is there an email I could send a document to? :)

I'm glad you liked it! And yay, played James first? He's such a cute, haha. I hope you enjoy Dragon's story, too! I would LOVE to correct any errors haha. You can send them to me for now-- misse.chouette@gmail.com.

Lovely art! I'll play and then come back to leave my feedback. In the meantime, can I ask what program did you use to draw? Thank you :)

(Edited 1 time)

Awesome! If you can, please re-download since by accident, I messed up one of the codes to get James' bad ending. Haha... orz;;

Anyway, I asked the artist and I'll let you know! I believe it's SAI but I'm not certain.

edit: Shida used SAI. (^:

Thank you very much :) for now, I only played James' root: at the beginning and at first impact I kind of hated Kitten's "bossy" personality -but hey, princess be princess XD so you did a great job portraying that - but luckily after a while she kinda grew on me. So, the root was really enjoyable ;)

For some reason i can't get James' ending other than the happy one, no matter how hard I tried. Any help guys?

Sorry, that's an error! I've updated the game so you should be able to get his bad ending with KP. I'm sorry for the delay!

I just finished my first playthrough of this game and it really lives up to the features. Everything about it is really high quality, especially for a free NaNoRenO project! The writing and world building was really well done and the characters are fun to interact with. I'm definitely going to try and get the seven other endings! :D :D

Wow, thank you so much! We're so glad you commented because we were getting nervous about the lack of feedback! ^^Thank you so much and I'm glad you're enjoying the characters! I have to say, I'm super curious as to who you played as first! ^^ Have fun getting off the endings! I hope you like them and I hope you like Pairs as much as we enjoyed creating it! (^:

I played Dragon/Carmelita first. :)

And I'm really enjoying Pairs. Seeing things from the other character's perspective is really cool and probably one of my favourite parts of the game :)
