"There are two kinds of people in the world, is what I think. 

There are 'normal' people. Those people smile and talk easily, look people in the eye and laugh. Those people walk right up to strangers and talk to them, and come away as friends. They smile, they feel things, and they're just... Destined to be surrounded by people, it seems. They'll be successful and happy and loved.

And then there are other people, who are like me. 
We don't talk that easily. 
We don't even feel very much. 

At least, I don't."

Megumi Shimizu's life is routine and monotonous. Get up, go to school early, fulfill her duties as class leader, try to deal with Inoue, and go home and do it all again tomorrow. She has no friends, her life doesn't seem like it'll go anywhere...and she's fine with that.

She's used to it, just like she's used to the cold, numbing winters in her hometown of Ikigai.

Then one day, a new transfer arrives. A new transfer who is instantly liked by her classmates and teacher, who is everything Megumi is not. Bubbly, sweet, happy, social. 
And for some reason, this new girl, Hinata Mikami, thinks Megumi is nice and wants to be friends. And Megumi is stunned to find she likes Hinata too...

Little by little, Megumi's cold and unfeeling world sounds less and less appealing.

Maybe playing this at 2am just made everything hit harder, but this felt really powerful. Numbness was a good metaphor for getting used to loneliness, especially as part of the broader temperature metaphor. It was nice to see the main character constantly realizing things about herself. I'm not convinced the final sequence with the hospitalization and timeskip was really necessary though.

Great Job! this game was great! super cute! the only semi-critical thing  that went through my mind is that the climax and ending felt a bit fast, but that  could just be taste! super cute kiddos learning to be friends!


Great game! 


This is a really sweet story! I think you did a great job of depicting bullying and depression realistically while also including a lot of cute and happy moments so that it doesn't get too intense to enjoy reading. I especially liked the parts with all four friends hanging out.

Amazing. Well worth a read.

This is such a sweet story! <3

i'm definitely gonna try this game, but before i do i gotta ask: ever seen shiki? XD


hello! im currently playing through the demo for the first time and im really enjoying it so far! i especially love the UI and the music! once i get the funds, i'll for sure buy the full game 💛


Thank you for the kind words!

My composer, Forrest Lotterhos, did an amazing job with the music- he has the soundtrack available for free on his website, if you want a little musical taste of the full novel. ❄️💛
