A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

On your way home, you find a koi carp struggling on the ground. But when you drop it in your garden lake it reveals as the Spirit of the Pond... 
That's the only thing he remembers. Help him regain his memories and, who knows, you might discover something about you aswell...

Greetings! I've been in love with your games and I wonder if you could allow me to translate your games into Thai. Is that alright with you?

Of course it is, I would be honored if you do >\\\<
Let me know if you need anything to translate them!

the story was so cute

will you make a rebooted version that could be longer?

(+2)

Thank you, Naroshinozaki >\\\< I'm glad you liked it!
I think I would after I finish my current project :) so I'm collecting impressions: what would you like to see in an extended version?

This game is quite entertaining. I like the story although it was quite short and the interaction between characters. It was fun regaining the memories and finding out the story of the mysterious person. I love the plot and the way it is presented and I hope you make more :D!

(+2)

Glad to see you again, Allekid! And thank you so much for the letsplay ;\\\\; I'm really happy that you liked the game!
(Atm I'm working on another one, I hope to publish it soon!)

Hello Banya, I played the game in Spanish, thank you Bruno for me and I liked it a lot, I uploaded a video in the Spanish version of your game, I hope to continue uploading this type of games made by you, I am just starting on YouTube so I have 6 subscribers but I hope that what you see in the videos of this type of games helps creators like you to create good games. Thank you very much and to all of you a lot of love and support. By the way I am using google translator XD I don't know English.

Mil gracias, Reyva! >\\\<

You know that moment when you're browsing for games and you see a recent one by one of your favorite developers and you decide to record a video to support them? Yeah, this is the case here.

Firstly, I'd like to start off by applauding the Japanese pun in the title. It was clever and I love it.

Secondly, the fact that you managed to make an interesting story in 10 minutes playtime is crazy. That's like one of the skills I want to master as a writer and storyteller.

I don't have much to say here other than, good job. I'm amazed and I love it. Thank you for bringing this to us, Banya. I'm so happy to see you still going hard with making games. Never stop, I'll always be here to support you.

Let's talk again soon! Bye!

Aww ;\\\\; your message is so heartwarming!
Thank you so much, Houssem! I'll watch the video as soon as I come back home, I can't wait! But I'm glad you liked KOI and especially that you noticed immediatly the pun >\\\<

(Since I read your writings, you do have that skill! At least according to me >\\\< keep up the good work!)

(+1)

I NEED A SEQUEL OF THIS GAME!

Please<3

(+1)

Aww thank you, Aural >\\\<

I didn't plan one but since I'll probably have the characters make a cameo in other games, what would you like to see in a sequel?

(+1)

See how their relationship progresses from the end of the game (In a romantic sense ; ) ), and see when Ren will realize that he is reincarnation or if the Koi will tell him<3<3<3<3.

P.S.: And a kiss, please<3.

I can't believe you've finished this game within 24hrs! It's sooooo good and I didn't encounter any bugs. The story is something I liked too - Yokais, spirits, myths, history (I'm not really sure what you call it XDD, maybe Japanese literature?). I've been wanting to play this kind of game/s since I've only been reading them in mangas. >.<

And, I laughed at Jun's fishy memory. XDD

Oh and I have a playthrough of the game, I hope it's okay! Here is the link: 

Thank you so much for another great game (well, for me! I'm one of your fans!)!!!

Keep it up!!!!

(+1)

Oh my >\\\< this was such a pleasant surprise!
First of all, thank you for playing Koi, Seto! I'm happy that you liked and that it made you laugh too >\\\< and thank you for the walkthrough video! I put it on display on the game page ehe!

(As for the 24 hrs time, it couldn't be possible without the free assets, but having them at disposal helped me write the story and edit the sprite bases since I could devote all the time to that)

Thank you again >\\\< I'm honored you made a playthrough, really!

(+1)

Thank you for featuring my playthrough! >.< It's made my day!!

You're really putting your all into making a game, no matter how small or short it is. :D It's nice to know how things go in the background. :D

Hope you'll never be tired of making games! Also, the art is amazing! I sometimes wish I have both the talents and skills. XDD

(+1)

You're welcome! >\\\<
And thank you for your kind words! I'm doing my best, I hope that Emerald Wasp comes out a good game too! 
(My contribute to the art in KOI is minimal since I edited the sprite bases of the portraits and the overworld charas, but in the credits you can find all the pages of the artists! >\\\<)

(+1)

You and your team are working hard so I'm sure Emerald Wasp will be great too! :D

Cheers!
