Well, so many seem to like this game, I guess I'll try again and see if I can get further. I really enjoyed Halloween Otome and found the characters utterly charming, but I find the premise of the game unpleasant in the extreme, and the characters unlikable. Still...the comments are uniformly positive, so....yeah. here I go to reload..... Edit: Tried Daire's route this time and liking it much better. Edit2: Still don't like the guys, but I do like Mira now, so that's good. It's lovely to see the characters from Halloween again, but I'm not a fan of the mechanic that Mira's stats can derail past victories.

After those grueling but also intriguing chains of events, let say in short I was in the border of "what had I signed myself (Mira, actually) into?" and "I NEED THESE BACHELORS IRL (T^T)"
Playing the game, I started off disliking the characters and Mira and the love interests and the setting or basically THE GAMES ALTOGETHER to "OMG THIS IS AWESOME I WANT MORE I WANT SEASON 2 I WANT MORE LOVE INTERESTS". I thought Halloween is really good, but this is a lot better imo
(I'm sorry but Erik Valdemar is a child and turn me off LOL Still his relationship with Emma really makes me jealous it pisses me off, he's still the total package which I want except for his childishness [that's giving him a lot of character depth tho] hahaha ok nvm move on)
My favorite love interest is Daire, just because to see him showing affection to Mira got me squealing internally lol And seeing Mira squeal internally is really cute. She's confident and flirty, so it's refreshing to see her so.
Also I appreciate the diverse ending. Love that they have different scenarios. Even if I was hoping the bad ends (well, the endings exclude the happily ever after best ending) are better. Bad end does not mean necessarily bad altogether, because good bad end is awesomeee, especially since some of the endings include death (angst is the best). Maybe what it could have is... more elaboration on the character's feelings. Yas.
My love for this game is still burning and I love you, devs. Thank you. Please make more games :D Sorry for the bad grammar lol
(Warning: slight spoilers, but no context) This game is absoultely INCREDIBLE. The music, artwork, and writing are amazing, but the general formula of the game is what blew me away. I just had to pause the game to comment how perfect the part around July is. The way the player/reader just keeps planning weeks and skipping through them mundanely was, in my opinion, the absolute best way to portray the emptiness that the MC is feeling in this part of the story. And the loss of actions with the love interest (assuming this is all routes, not just Daire's, as that's the only route I've started as of the writing of this comment) before this point was another great way to involve the audience and just rip their heartstrings out. This was the perfect use of a planner system, it enhanced the story in a way that simply reading the MC's thoughts couldn't. This is definitely one of my favorite visual novels ever, and I'm still not even done with my first route. Congratulations to you and everyone on your team for your incredible talents and hard work.
Edit: HOLY-- So, I continued playing after that and I definitely got the bad end xD But it was a great bad end. If it were the middle of the night and I were playing uninterrupted, that definitely would've made me cry. God, I love this game
Hi I have a question !
What code should I write in the Renpy program, which, after reaching the good end, will create a hidden end in the game?
You might find this thread in the lemmasoft forums useful:
I love this game so much, and I was wondering is there was going to be a fan book for it?
We plan to release one eventually. We've got some pages done but there's still a lot of work left to do before we've got enough content to be satisfied.
THIS GAME IS LEGENDARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Anyone who made this game must be Genius!!!!😉 I ADoRe Your Ultimate Game🎇🎉🎇 only one word can describe your game and it's L-e-g-e-n-d-a-r-y!!!!😁👍👍👍👍
that ain’t a description 😂 but glad you liked it that much 😊
I made an account just to comment. I've played a lot of otome games in my time and eventually I landed upon Halloween Otome. I found myself drawn to every single character. I tend to get possessive of one guy after I pick them and love their storyline that sometimes it just breaks my heart to chase after another one for them to only be background characters. This is where these games have surpassed my expectations. Games that can be accessed freely often don't put as much time and effort in creating the work. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME JUST DRAWS YOU IN.
Mira was such a wonderful individual to play as. Her attitude towards life was very refreshing and uplifting from the regular otome game protagonist. I couldn't ever identify with Mira's experience, but watching everything play out made me jump for joy and cheer for her every moment. The guys. Wow! Each guy provided such a unique experience that made playing each route so much fun. All the information that you learn from one story to the next truly creates the depth that this game has. I played the routes recommended in order and felt that this helped create a wonderful experience in trying to understand and learn new things about the fleshed out story and characters. Zane was such an interesting route to begin with and slowly seeing him fall in love with Mira was amazing. (Gotta support the hubby with his video games :D) Kiron absolutely made my heart flutter and knowing Annabelle had went with Kiron to the wedding with Zane from the first route made me get so invested in having Kiron fall in love with Mira. HIS SHYNESS WAS SO LOVELY and provided a comedic contrast to Mira's attitude. Now Daire. I am glad I played Daire last. The last few scenes took me for a ride. It got absolutely crazy. I wasn't sure how the iceman was slowly gonna melt his heart for Mira when I first initially saw him. BUT OH BOY WAS IT ONE OF MY FAVORITES. (Besides all the moments I felt like I was getting teased along with Mira) I laughed at the subtle jokes that nodded back to the other routes and found it quite enjoyable. Everything about these characters provides such a unique experience that even someone like me who often falls in love with one character find myself getting totally invested with another one in a few hours! I love their friendship dynamic it was so refreshing. The mysterious aspects of the game kept you coming back for more and to play all the routes to try to figure out what was truly going on with every character in the game
HALLOWEEN OTOME. Being able to choose who Emma ended up with (i ultimately always chose Erik) and seeing their interactions afterwards made me so happy. This added another layer to the game and made it so much fun. Seeing Emma and Mira's relationship being fleshed out more in this game made me so happy.
I don't know if you could tell but I absolutely adored this game. Phenomenal.
Had to log in with my separate account to say thank you so so much for your lovely comment. It made me and Corynth very happy that someone liked the story and your thoughts on the progression TT^TT . It’s nice to see people liking Mira’s character coz we know there are a lot of people who don’t ^^’ but as we’ve said somewhere before, our mc’s have their own character and aren’t suppose to be generic. Thank you thank you thank you! For putting smiles on our faces.
I'm glad that I could bring a smile to your faces. It makes me happy that I can give back at least through words for the joy that your games have brought me. I hope you both keep on continuing what you do and enjoy every moment of it because I sure do! Thank you both for your hard work.
This is such an amazing game! First I have to talk about Mira. I've played a lot of Otome games in my lifetime but I don't think I've ever loved a protagonist as much as I loved this one. Smart, funny, beautiful, confident in her sexuality and her abilities, she was so much fun to play. I also loved playing a female character that had been with multiple partners in the past and enjoyed sex and wasn't shamed for that. It was so refreshing and different from a lot of games I've played. Also the differences not only between the romances, but the different scenarios and interactions you get depending on Emma's LI was so much fun. I've played through each route at least twice to see all of the different interactions and will probably play a third time. I loved the mystery aspect of the game, although I still haven't figured all of it out yet, especially Rayner. He is such a complex and interesting character, I want to know more about him! This is a great, beautiful, amazing game. You guys are so talented. Thank you for the incredible game.
thank you for your comment! So many people say yes they want a strong confident character who doesn’t go all shy fluttery at the first intimate contact but usually they don’t like the enjoyed multiple characters part? (What am I saying?! Lol) but I’m glad you like her sexuality and abilities. When we made the Em’s bf option we knew there was gonna be a lot of scenarios and interactions that people were going to miss (even I don’t think I’ve cleared 100% word count in the game myself despite playing by every option and I unlocking all the ends. Grrr. ) but hoped it’d increase the play playability without getting boring too quickly. Rayner will appear in a future game(s) so hopefully you will get to find out more about him one day =)
Is there a full walkthrough anywhere ? All the correct choices for the characters ? What to do to get all the endings ? It's a great game but after the fourth time it gets kind of boring when I'm trying to get the endings. I tried to use the guide but I just can't get it. Need walkthrough please help!
Try saving at places before choices are made, the day you discover the planner, and/or any other scenes that may be significant to the plot. That way, if you don't get the ending you're happy with, all you have to do it load up the scene in which you feel is best, (sometimes it gets all ~too~ messed up because you didn't get the planning right, which is why it's good to have a slot saved for the moment Mira starts talking about the planning app) and you don't have to suffer through skipping dialogue that you've seen countless times. Also check the guide for the desired character's favorite traits and what choices to make as well as deadlines for certain things. Hope this helped!
!!!!! ALSO SIDE NOTE: If you're trying to load up a scene from before when you're in a scene that came afterwards and you messed it up, BE SURE TO CLICK LOAD BEFORE YOU CHOOSE A SLOT. I've made the mistake of instead of going back in time to rewind my error, but I end up saving the scene where I realized I messed up, usually prompting me to have to restart all over again. So, uh, yeah. Don't do that. It's a pain in the rear and kicks about another 45 min in playing time when I could've reached the ending already. !!!!
I took back my words and I played and got all the endings and the extra. I'm crying. I CALLED IT! I'm also a bit peeved that I didn't see Erik's reaction to Emma's positive on the test. How would the other boys react to? Anyways I LOVE THE GAME!!! The art for breaking Emma's promise made me cry also, is flame head gonna be the villain in the next game?
Landon would be extremely worried while Tyler would be overjoyed.
Personally, I consider Kaiser more of a greater scope villain. He'll only be a villain to you if you get in the way of his plans.
Loved this game, I have only played Daire's so far (still need to get one ending) I will be definitely playing all the routes and all endings. I also enjoyed the music! the CGs are so beautiful! well done to all that worked on it! <3 :)
nice game! I am a developer also or soon will be.... Until I release my first game *symbol of despair binded destinies* I am still working on it so plz check it out later once its released! Thx!😋
Worthy successor to Halloween Otome! Every route is interesting, and the characters are good company. I am going to miss Emma's facial expressions, again!
THis is suriously one of my top 5 otome games I played so far and I am counting the expensive ones!!! Loved this game, the main character is just so cool and smart, I love all of her comeback especialy in Zane's rout. x3 She is one of the strongest main character I see in those kind of game and I love it!! The story is great too, it kept me suprised all game long and all character are really great and deep! Ok I think I am just repeating myself there... :P I am really happy I waited for it's release, since I loved the first game and this one was even better!!! I admit I would love to see another one of that storyline!!! Love synokoria's game <3
I really, really, really want to play this game sighs ;;-;; but my laptop won't launch the game so I can't huaaaaaa hopefully I can play this game one day because I love Halloween Otome. Best luck to you!
i didn't read the hints or guide before my first playthrough and MY HUSBAND GOT FUCKING MURDERED HOW DARE YOU good shit
...is there an ending where daire gets to stay ceo AND we stay together? if so how do i get it T.T
There is an ending like that, yes.
You need to get trust and design to at least 250 early in the game as well as have high affection. Good Luck!
ah, thankyou! it went against my nature to avoid some tasks entirely in favor of the necessary ones, but i finally have my happy ending, and i got to rescue my damsel penguin!
...are affection and trust different? how does one gauge affection?
Affection is a hidden stat that is based on your choices.
You can generally gauge it based on whether you are getting the his pov sections or the occasional more romantic variations of scenes.
Hi, im not sure if you still respond to comments but i need help, i've been trying to get runaway lovers but im only getting broken promise or truth revealed, does emma's boyfriend has any effect on the route ? Or i need an certain stat for that ? I've already maximize trust and management a few times with the affectionate trait yet still nothing...Sorry for the mistakes.
Hi there, Runaway Lovers requires low Management. The rest of it's requirements are the same as Truth Revealed.
Sorry this is going to be long haha. (slight spoilers may be included)
First of all, thank you so much for making this game! I was ecstatic when I noticed that this was out because I played Halloween Otome a year ago (I think?) - I really enjoyed that too btw - and I took a break from otome games cos of school TT_TT I think I was aware of the sequel being in the works, but I only got around to finally hunting otome games down once again a few days ago haha.
Anyways, I really love this gameee how will I ever move on from it ahhhughgbuhinij- no seriously though, it really is wonderfully made. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was about Em's best friend instead of Em again (I dunno why, I guess I didn't really read the game info the first time cos I was excited and just went ahead and downloaded it XD). I love all of the characters and their personalities so much. I also loved how you still showed the characters from Halloween Otome (Tyler is still such a cutie omg).
The bachelors are all vastly different from each other, their personalities, their background, their hobbies, etc. and I absolutely adore it. This is the kind of game I like because I don't have to spend like half the game skipping through lines that I've already read because each bachelor's route is reeallyy different from each other. Each route presents different characters and problems. I also like how depending on which guy you chose Emma to have ended up with, you get different honeymoon spots! ^^ (Rayner crossdressing tho <3)
Other than the characters, I especially adore the game's music, especially the opening/ending song. I applaud Tyler Thompson for that <3 The background music really changed according to the situation being presented and it suits the mood -I may or may not have teared up every time Mira gets married to one of the bachelors- Seriously, I adored "All Eyes on Me" (assuming that's the title) so much to the point that I wrote down the lyrics by ear because I wanted to sing along to it every time I hear it.
Every time Mira gets married though, I do tear up a little cos it feels like I'm a mother giving Mira away even though I'm not?? I don't know I guess I'm so touched every time like whenever the transition's done and I see Mira in her wedding getup I just stare at her lil sprite in the lower left corner and just admire her, "omg she looks so beautiful." Of course, I also admire her more with one of the bachelors right beside her in the CG. Speaking of which, may I just say that the CGs are so good? Like seriously they are so gooood, especially the CGs of the individual bachelors in the prologue because it made me anticipate their routes. The sprites are also beautiful too, they don't look awkward or stiff, they have the right body proportions! Not only that, I like the colors of everything in the game.
I enjoyed that lil scene for Kaiser at the end, is this a sneak peek of what I could look forward to in the future, I wonder?
Throughout the game, I was only disheartened by the fact that I had mistakenly thought that Daire would have two happy endings... he didn't. TT_TT I was really expecting that the last ending listed for Daire was the really, really happy one but I was unfortunately mistaken </3
Anyways omg, this ended up being wayy longer than I expected I'm sorry, but now I've let out all my feelings for the game ^^' Thank you so much for making this game once again, and I'm looking forward to your games in the future! <3
omg I love this game so much and I really need more Rayner in my life
Can I please have a Rayner route DLC X3
Will you be making a cheat at all? Like some sort of code to max out stats?
Also wanted to say that I love your games! Your stories are amazing. Halloween otome was one of my faves when I played it years ago, and this one was just as amazing. I will continue to support your amazing work!
Thank you very much for your kind words! It's always encouraging to hear that people enjoy our games! We have a poll regarding our next game if you're interested in that.
The traits are pretty much in-game cheats. For instance, with "Relaxed" it's quite trivial to max out all stats by the end of the game. The main reason we don't want to make pure cheats is that it could very easily break the game logic.
I loved your game,It's so cute
This game lags a lot for me. When I load, save, rollback, etc., the game lags very badly. I have a gaming laptop and it runs windows 8. :/ Wish there was a fix or something for this. It's only this renpy game.
Try shift+G and switching the options there?
Alternatively, try asking on the lemmasoft forum with your logs and full specifications so we can try to help as this may be something specific to your system and the current ren'py version.
:3 When I got the CG of the AFTER math of Mira finding Zane's 2D Otome world, my mother said she will take the internet out and quote on quote " Don't play those type of games". (Even tho IT DIDN'T SHOW ANY NUDE-) When I tried to explain, she responded with "Stop talking back" Ahhhh I love it when outsiders don't understand. :) She says that I should stop playing "these" type of games even though I read Yaoi and lord knows what is in that :3 (Sorry but I am just gonna try to get the good ending because I really don't want to cry *Again*)
A fan that is unable to play one route without being judged <3
it does not let me advance
This may be a topic better tackled in the VO thread on the lemmasoft forums as we'd require logs and full system specs as well as a more in depth explanation of the issue before we can diagnose the issue.
I have 2 questions.
1. Why is Landon against marriage?
2. If I get the first dance ending with Landon's epilogue will something special happen between him and Emma at the wedding?
1. He's not against marriage in general so much as himself getting married. Marriage is a commitment he doesn't feel he's ready for. It's easy enough to say you're going to date a person for the foreseeable future, but actually living with them and committing to spending your life with them is harder. Plus he knows he's hard to be with and it's less messy to have his girlfriend leave him than a wife. It's not something he wants to rush.
Also, the fact that children are likely to come after marriage scares him. Unlike Erik, he's in no hurry to start a family.
2. Not at the wedding, no. There's an extra scene available from the extras menu if you've seen a specific late game scene with him though. It shows him slowly starting to get over his reluctance to commit.
For starters, I love this game!!! xxx I need help, though! I'm stuck on getting the "Early Exit", but have already completed "Broken Promise" and "Sunken Ship". Any hints or tips?! Also, I can't seem to get "Runaway Lovers" end either >.< SOS
So I wanted to throw out a little tip for anyone playing,
Place 'Go to Bar' in Wednesday and Friday. You'll note that if you don't have any of the traits unlocked, the go to bar W and F set up will get you really far without the stress penalties. Just switch the days off if you make it past the vacation time.
I've managed almost all endings, and getting 150 in all the skills (minus stress but that's out of a 100) and still manage maxing out the main skill needed, and trust for the bachelor involved.
ok first of, i really love this game! It is an amazing story, amazing charachters and just everything is great, but i can see like many others i have a problem with getting the good end with Zane even if i max out trust and management and take the right affectionate choices it gives me only "of course it was and yes but not right away" I Had Landon as Emmas lover but dont know if that plays a role? So well should i just try again and not max them out cause it seems like on the guide that they should be lover or is that just me?
Love the game, but please help 😂
Getting the option for "Yes - but not right away" means affection is not high enough. The usual culprit here tends to be the birthday choice because it changes depending on current affection level and if affection is not high enough by this point you will lose out on the chance for another affection boost.
The easiest to get the right end is to simply replay with the affectionate trait. Alternatively you can replay with the guide and ensure you have 9 affection points by the end of the game.
I get this option too, I get the trait affectionate , I get the Astute achiviment with scarf , but yet i get the two choises, "Of couse.." and "Yes- but not...."
I get all choices ritghs, i started one new game, because the firts time i choose the firts choice wrong, but my game finished like this
My status is full almost all, But trust and the other fo Zane route.
What i am did wrong? This in my second time
Weird thing, so I choose "Of course" I get he Broken Promise. And So loaded my save and the choices changed.
This is strange because it implies that your affection somehow changed when you loaded the save.
I'm unable to recreate it, so I can't be sure what's causing it.
hey!! I really love your game!! I have a problem, though. Trust is at 300, management too, but I always end up getting the "Broken Promise" ending. The only choices I have with Zane near the end, are "absolutely" and "yes but not now". I don't know if I chose something wrong, but the guide only has the stats I have to raise, not the choices I have to make. Is it a bug, or am I simply doing something wrong?
+ Ι tried not maxing trust and management and leaving them at 280 or 290 but still, not working.
Do nothing (-> not stopping him from bidding for Daire on that auction)
Asking Emma when she's going to get married (though kinda irrelevant)
Going to a cafe (on vacation)
Spending the day with Zane (also on vacation)
an XXX gift (somehow it was the least selfish, jewellery were for her and scarf too cheap)
Refuse to go (when she spraint her ankle)
I also kinda raised other stats too, since I had raised trust and management early and thought it a good idea to raise design and social skill)
Emma is with Erik
Hi. The affection guide tab in the guide has a list of all choices and the effect they have.
From what I'm seeing, it seems like you messed up on the choices. You can try using the affectionate trait to give you a boost or follow the guide.
The affection requirement for "Broken Promise" is actually lower than that of the better endings and I've modified the guide to reflect that.
Ohh.... well, oops.
Now I get it, and the guide seems fine now! For some reason I could only see the general guide but now it's perfect. Thank you so much for your answer, I'll go finish it. Again, let me tell you how much I love your game. There are many fascinating characters and I'm looking forward to exploring more stories of yours, when they come out.
Hi, I love your game, I wanted to mention I came across a bug that happens really really rarely and I've only seen it when managing the boutique.
You will sometimes not get the points added to your stats, and again, I've seen this happen only four or five times through my playthrough (I'm at the second interval for Zane's PoV because I want all his endings so I am working my booty off to get them).
I though the info would help you out should you make any updates, or continue your journey to make a stat raising otome which I would love to see done!
i am playing it, and a little doubt get me, which status for each character?
I mean Zane is managent right?
And the others?
This game is amazing! I already loved HO and this is even better! I know I'll never be able to get all the scenes and dialogues, though, because I love Erik too much to put Emma with anyone else! I've played Daire so far and he was amazing and then I played Zane and I loved him a ton too and now I'm working on Kiron and what a relief that there's actually some early-installment kindness going on! He's sweet. I was curious about something that happens on Erik's getaway. I've gotten the dinner or the party at various points but I'm not sure what causes one to trigger over the other and which one is a better outcome. I would think the dinner would be but the boyfriend's POV scene happens with the party.
Erik's getaway is based on your Management skill.
The party is the better outcome for Mira because her husband actually reacts to it and tries to comfort her in his own way. During the dinner sequence there is no strengthening of her relationship.
I really like this game! So thank you very much for creating it.
I was hoping if you (or anyone else) could maybe help me get the "First dance" ending with Daire. The only thing I know is that I have to not get blocked when I have to enter Daires company - something about meeting a person?
I would really appreciate if you could help me >_<
You will get blocked irrespective of which end you're on.
The important part is to meet his requirements before you are blocked.
Hi i'm a fan of the game just having a bit of a problem getting any other ending than Broken Promise for Zane , wondering what i'm doing wrong. i maxed out management and trust as well as got all the affection choices.
This sounds like you might be making the wrong choice at the very end.
When the final choice is shown, choosing to leave him ("Of course it was!") will give you Broken Promise even if you have the right stats.
Choose "Absolutely Not!" instead.
thanks for replying so quick, but the absolutely option isn't popping up at all.
That's interesting. This might be better to move to the Synokoria Forums for ease of answering.
As it is, do you get any option at all? If not that implies something is wrong with your trust. If you get "No, it wasn't." that implies your management isn't high enough. But you've maxed both. Can you try loading from a save and playing up to the ending without maxing them but getting them above 250?
