It showed declined, because I used an old card, payed again with the new card, not sure if you'll get both payments or one but either way, just wanted to say thank you for making my day today.

It shows there are two payments, I never  got any money so far from itchio but  I guess it is fine it keeps to website going. thank you so much for your support too :)


Hi Anwynn, I wanted to thank you so much for supporting me as a creator! ^-^ It means a lot to me, really. As a token of gratitude, I’d like to gift you 10 free asset packs from my portfolio. Please choose the ones you like (no matter the price), and list them as a reply to this comment here, and I’ll send you the free download keys for them all. Have a great weekend! And thank you so much again! -Rachel

Hi Rachel :)

I am  surprised to see such comment , that is something I was not expecting at all, I see that your assets page is different than before and all the old ones are gone , including your tarot cards and gui's for tyrano builder. 😥

I do miss seeing the Ice cream mini pack  and some others.

(I am so glad to keep everything I buy from itchio on my computer or on a usb.)

I noticed ratings are gone too, I believe I understand your reason for that.

If that is really alright for you to gift me 10, then I will say the followings : 











It surely makes more than the 6 packs I bought before 😮

I hope you keep all your old backgrounds pack even if you removed them from here.

Good weekend :)

Hi Anwynn! Yes, I’ve renewed my portfolio completely last autumn. I’ve discovered a new method of making backgrounds and grew a lot as an artist, so I’ve decided to gradually remake everything. The old packs will be back, but in new versions (available for free download to everyone who bought the old ones earlier). Several packs are already back, though they may look a bit different, or have slightly altered names. The old versions won’t be available anymore but everyone who bought them has downloaded them already just like you, so there’s no issue. Regarding GUI packs, those had a lot of elements that ultimately weren’t needed (and lacked some others), and most people mistakenly bought them for Renpy. So, I removed them, and I hope to make new ones which will be universal for all engines. And as for the tarot cards, people tried to buy them as assets for their games so I’ve decided to start another shop especially for the purpose (when I have more decks designed). Your ratings are all still there, no worries; they’re just momentarily hidden. Sadly, I had to disable the rating function to protect myself from haters. Thank you so much for your continuous support though, I’m truly grateful! I’m sending you the free download keys. Please claim them as soon as you can so that they’re yours. I’ll also keep you posted when I remake the packs you’ve bought, so you’ll be able to redownload the new versions for free.











Take care! -Rachel

Hi again Rachel :)

I understand, you will only do AI backgrounds from now on, they are great too :)

About your gui's , I understand if lot of people mistook them for Renpy gui's, maybe they bought them in a hurry without even reading details and such, Renpy is free so obviously most people making visual novels will use it instead of VN Maker or Tyrano Builder, I was  interested in your beautiful  Ocean gui you  but as my visual novel is in Renpy it would have not have make sense to buy it.

I figured out your removed ratings because of haters, you did the right thing.

Now I am curious as to how those pack will look like with AI art ( the ice cream mini pack too !  even though I did not buy it before. I think I am obsessed with that ice cream pack 🍧 🍨 🍦😅.)

I do remember some old packs and saw your remade them with the AI indeed, I do not have all of them in my mind though.

Thank you so much for all these packs❤️, I have no idea how I will use them yet,  if I  make another visual novel then I could use depending on the story or as a background/ battle background in a RPG Maker game.

Take care too :)

Hi Anwynn, Sorry for the late response! Ever since I started my full time job, I have very little time left. Yes, Renpy is very popular! I think that’s the most common engine among visual novel makers. I didn’t use it because, I can’t really write code. I used Novelty to learn the process of visual novel making, and then switched Tyranobuilder because it was similar. Regarding gui, I’d like to make general texture and element packs that will let the visual novel makers make their own GUI. I think that’s the best idea. And… I also loved the ice cream mini pack, it was among my favorites from the classical series! I’m working on remaking it but I need some more practice, so far, I wasn’t successful. And welcome, thank you once again for your support! Good luck with your creative projects! -Rachel

Hi Rachel :)

Work (and other life things) are keeping us away from free time no matter what we do in that free time.

Take your time to pratice more for backgrounds images and that is a great idea for gui packs :)


Finally got some time amidst the chaos to play through this one! :)

Very cute cozy story. Great job!


Hello Brii :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to play and glad you liked it :)

( It sure easier and faster to play through this short visual novel than my rpg game that takes longer and is still not complete)

I hope all goes well for you (chaos?) and looking forward the other parts of  The Directive.



Life's been busy with my job and moving to a new place, but things have finally settled so I'm ready to get back to work on the Directive :) Hoping to have something to show for it soon, haha!

I understand, life things comes first :)

Hi :)

 Hopefully you  will enjoy it :)


I played through both endings tonight. Great job! The story was very nice. The characters were very likeable. I laughed when Rem got drunk and started talking about extraterrestrials.


Hi Magbo :) 

I am happy that you liked the characters and everything :)

 It was a nice moment writing that part about extraterrestrials :)  I had to put a fun part into the story and I am glad to see it is liked :)

Thank you so much to have played my little visual novel :)


Hey! I played it and it was good, but I found a few spelling errors that I missed and might fix it...But the game looks fantastic...Hehehe

Hi  Nora :)

I am happy that you had the time to play  and enjoyed it :)

Errors can always happen :)


Read this yesterday, hehe. You already know my initial thoughts :D

Now for the rest of them:

I actually like the writing and how everything is straight to the point, it makes the plot really clear! There aren't any extreme descriptions, which I see a lot in other games and deters me from reading. So looking past the grammar, the writing was amazing in my opinion :D I liked the funny moments too between the characters, like when they went to the cafe lol

On a side note, I love looking at crabs too XD, I pick them up and stack them sometimes. The beach setting was very nicely done and I think it's cool you got to go there during the summers!

Spoilers maybe(?):

As for the endings... I love both of them for what they are meant to be. Admitting your feelings to someone can be really hard, but it's even worse when you're never going to see that person again. I think it's a good lesson for anyone to say something before it's too late. Thank you for sharing the story and I hope you're doing well now :D

Yes, I knew already from discord :)

I did not think that someone would like the way I write...thank you so much for saying this :)

I write the same way in my language ( with probably less grammar issues though.)

I do like to go straight to the point for everything in life, that is just how I am.

I have not gone to any beaches for a long time already but I did love to go when there were not many people :)

What kind of extreme descriptions?

For the grammar I did what I could, I think it is understandable enough for anyone to read unless...:D

Yes, for the cafe I wanted to make a kind of funny moment, I am glad it worked :)

Yeah, I did love those summers despite some unwanted events happening sometimes, it was way better than being home.

For the endings i wrote you a wall on discord, I hope that is ok :D

but yes, saying something before it is too late is a lesson to take, one I learned the hard way.

Only saw this now. Nice

A few typing errors here and there, but the "meat" of the story itself is great.

By far my favorite character was David. Going to the beach and reading a book, giving good afternoon at 19PM, very cool guy.

This was a good vn, *clap clap*.


Also the end was a bit depressing, fairytale and real life ending!? Everything was cute and then the name of the endings appear like a punch in your face.

Hi Ony :) 

I am glad you liked it and found it cute ;) 

I  understand that David is your favorite :)

I am sorry for  the second ending that made you a bit depressed, I made this visual novel based on my past..that is why i gave those names to the endings, at first I was only going for that second ending but then I thought I had to add another ending for opposite thoughts, the guy I call David here was truly a cool guy.


Just finished reading! Congrats, it was very soothing and cute.

Wish you the best on your future games!

Hi Grey :)

I am happy that you enjoyed playing it and found it cute :)

Thank you very much 🥰🥰


Ohh this looks exciting!!

Hi Niandra :)

Hope you will like it :)


This is really good. I can't wait to play it first

Hi Moon :) thank you :)
