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.

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?
Hello~ To start, I really want to thank you for Valentines Otome. I had been waiting for this ever since it was released as a demo and I really appreciate all the hard work you've done for VO. I loved its overall concept and all the bachelors (with more points to Daire but oh well, the adorbs penguin). Also, I enjoyed actually exhausting all the options I can do within the game as well as get all the achievements, extra scenes, traits, and even all the endings (nevermind, how I spent sleepless nights just to get through the whole of VO). It made me love Mira more and treasure her (the precious baby). I also appreciate the fact that we get to see the guy's point of view at every route. It lets one really see into them and see how they view Mira.
I can also say that VO is really a huge step from HO and will be my most favorite otome game out of all the others I've played so far. It was a huge roller coaster of emotions, fun, and all the sides a character can offer. For that, I don't regret ever picking this up and playing through everything. (Sidenote: Can't shake the feeling that this also contains quite the prelude to an Osiria story, which might be the next one? I might be wrong but it's a fun theory.)
Anyways, lastly, thank you so much for making VO and I really really appreciate all the efforts and love poured into it. Please keep up the amazing work and thank you for the wonderful experience :D
I’m not sure if you’ve answered this peticular question yet, but will you be releasing an art of Valentines otome like with what you’ve done with the Halloween otome? It’s always so interesting to see the behind the scenes and “what it could have been” from projects that have nessessled their way into my heart ^^
Please keep up the good work! It’s encouraging to see how far your team has come from the Halloween otome, from the world building ((when you really think about it, is pretty messed up compared to the short and simple Halloween one)), the character development, and don’t get me started on how the endings broke and made my heart! Coughcoughdairesendingscough.
Thank you, and the many other creators who make their precious games free. When I’m out of my parents grasp and get a card I’ll be sure to support those who helped make me the hopeless romatic I am today. You and the other great people in this community inspire me to make something great one day ^^ Thank you.
((sorry for the wall of text owo))
Thank you for your kind words!
We will be releasing a Fan Book of VO eventually.
We'd hoped to release one with VO, but time got away from us.
will you guys be answering some trivia about the game as well like you did for halloween otome? and it looks like we'll be getting another otome in the future possible (hopefully!) for osiria/siyan?
We'll answer the questions we get unless they spoil future games, yes.
And we'll also be releasing a Fan Book for the game at a later stage.
Regarding an Osiria game, yes, but that's a while in the future. Someone else needs their story told first ;).
I didn't get Zane's good ending...and I was maxed out on the management and trust stats so I'm not sure what I need to do? My other stats were kept low.
Raise his affection by making the correct choices (these can be found in the guide linked above). If you have Tyler as Emma's boyfriend then you'll need to either use the affectionate trait or have Social above 150 by his getaway as well.
Raising Trust stops you from dying. Raising Management will only change the ending if affection is high enough.
If you did meet all the requirements then maybe you made the wrong choice at the end - don't choose to leave him.
I was on 300 for Trust, pretty early on too, still died a horrible death. If I choose to leave the next morning I get the sunken ship ending. I think I picked the right answers but I can go back and try again. I am using the affection trait and I pick erik for emma, btw
This might be the best otome I have ever played. And Zane...I am actually really affected by his route, it is just so well written. If this was a rom com I would totally go watch it, the chemistry would be off the charts <3 You seriously have a gift. I am so determined to get his good ending, I just know it will be perfect
hi! for some reason I can't get the extra ending for mira/zane. I had the scene where she read spoiler book 5 and got the good ending truth revealed, but nothing in extras.
That's strange because it's unlocked on our side.
Are you sure you got the fifth Fantasy Book event and not just the fourth?
Perhaps try again?
Am i the only one who just cant get the game to extract on their windows pc?
Have you tried installing it through the itch app?
(Alternatively have you checked to see if maybe your antivirus is blocking it or you got a corrupted copy and need to redownload?)
Hello! I was wondering how to get the extra story with Emma and Landon. I played Daire's route and choose Landon for Emma. But didn't get Landon/Emma extra story from the extra story section.
