Life as a nursery school teacher can be tough, but it's a rewarding job. What kind of little shenanigans will you be facing? Interact with the kids, and you might just become closer to their respective guardians.

Cadell doesn't know how to stand up for himself. Everyone pushes him around, even his own son! His ex-wife, friends, and parents all think that he's not assertive enough. This is a huge win for Jack because he can make his dad buy him everything he wants.

With a large age gap between them, older brother Aeron doesn't know how to interact with his little sister. Even though Linette wants to play with her brother, Aeron thinks toys are way too childish for him to be touching.

Due to certain circumstances, Barry adopted Charlie. He may be a young single parent, but that won't stop him from trying his best to raise Charlie. Even though Barry is energetic, and his son is reserved, the two get along well. They bonded over their mutual love for superheroes.

Gareth is a magician who is taking care of his niece, Nia. He often acts crazy and pulls childish pranks on people. Nia,  on the other hand, sees her uncle's magic tricks way too often that she thinks it's unimpressive. Sometimes she has to remind her uncle to stop being so weird.

Wynn is a fellow teacher who'll be there to aid you in class! He's patient, and he knows how to handle kids well. Maybe... just maybe... you can be more than colleagues with him.

AAAAAA I loved this game!! It's so cute TwT all the kids and guardians were lovely.

I'm just a bit confused though because I somehow ended up on Wynn's route when I was trying to go for Cadell and I couldn't find a walkthrough so sobs

I forgot since it has been a long time, but I think you need to focus on Cadell and ignore the rest because Wynn is the default ending when the MC doesn't get any guy so he's like a participation trophy XDXD

Ohhhh right, that makes sense. I did go talk with all the guardians because I thought this was one of those games that let you choose at the end and didn't auto put you on a route, whoops! Thank you so much for the help :)

very cute game <3 aeron lover here !!

thank you for playing!

Picked my favorite game so far and figured I'd leave this...

I have a LOT of favorite scenes. ^w^

Looking forward to more.

Ooo do tell me what kind of tropes you like and maybe I could do some in the future!

My favorite tropes, huh? Hoo boy, you opened the worm can. Since I've played all your games and liked so many, this will get long. 

Here goes... 

Enemies to lovers is probably my favorite. I also like teacher/student and that sort of thing, authority and charge basically. I guess kinda opposites-attract too (Gavin and Kai, Just my Buddy). 

My ultimate love interest would be tsundere and bespectacled (Aeron from Nursery, older Gavin), have piercings and/or tattoos (Renan from Pact), long hair (Lance from Prince/Villain), and a twisted personality (Asa from Forsaken), mental health issues (Sam from the Forgive series) or weird hobby (Rapscallions LIs) depending on game type. Weird hobby for a comedy, twisted personality or mental health issues for a darker type of game. My favorite games have some angst but a happy ending, like Mixed Feelings or Prince and Villain. 

Even though it's not BL, I actually liked most of the LIs in Rapscallions on Deck. The weird hobbies that want to shoot something, or constantly offer to amputate something make me laugh. Perfect for a comedy. 

Obviously, my favorite (lighthearted) game you've done was Nursery, and my favorite character is Aeron. He's like my ultimate type, tsundere with glasses. Gareth is a close second. It's weird but I like opposites like that. 

My favorite not-lighthearted game is definitely Forgive my Desires, Father. It's perfectly twisted and dark, but can have a happy ending... Again, that goes back to the authority figure and charge trope, plus mental health issues. 

I have a hard time playing it because I get so angry at Gabriel (What if you made a separate what-if game where Gabriel stays a guardian secretly loving and envying from afar?), but in Forsaken I love Asa. I've come to realize how much I like seeing people I like upset (like Asa). In games, I like choosing things that'll show me someone cry or pout; I save screenshots of upset faces in manga too.

Wish you could pursue Theo in Fisherman. His personality is one of my faves. 

I really have played all but one of your games. I skipped Rent an Owner since it was more of a concept, but that's the only one. 

I probably just shared way more than you wanted, so I'll stop there. I'm an autistic fan that obsessed over your games, so sorry about the essay! 

I appreciate the long comment, actually! Honestly, I've been forgetting about tattoos, so I should definitely make more character designs with tattoos. You make me want to make a dark psychological story again XD There are too many light-hearted ones lately LOL 

I do love dark psychological ones too! Especially with a little yandere flair. 

This game was super cute! Absolutely loved every minute of it. Both the adults and kids are absolutely hilarious. 

I got Cadell's ending and he's just the sweetest.

I just finished my first route (Garneth) and I can already say that I'm loving the game so far!

It's cute, light and very interesting! All the characters captivate you and make you want to follow their routes!

The next route I'm going to take is Barry's!

(1 edit)

Very cute but I'm confused how I got the teacher ending. I was aiming for Gareth. 

It would be nice to have a affection chart 

i'm so happy that i came across this game, it's realy cute, i love it honestly, i hope it reaches more people because it's incredibly cute and the characters are hard not to love.

i think the guys i loved most were gareth and cadell, making it hard for me to decide who to go with first, it turned out to be cadell which wasn't disappointed with, his route was cute and i started off hating jack but seeing how the mc impacts cadell's life, i enjoyed seeing him grow into less of a brat and cadell grow into having somewhat of a backbone to say no.

im happy that you liked it ^^

OMG this game was so cute!!! I honestly had such a hard time trying to pick a route, all your characters are just so endearing ๐Ÿฅน. Loved it!!! Thank you for the wonderful game ^^


Is there a walkthrough for this game?

I love this game so much!! It's so cute and fun tbh, Its definitely a game I would recommend to anyone!!! 1000/10 :]

Oh. my. goodness, this was absolutely such a fun game and made me giggle a lot!! The guys and children were all so cute, and I just love everything about it, and hearing about the parents were sad too, this was such an entertaining game to play!!

I really enjoyed playing this game, especially Gareth's route! Thank you so much for making this, it's an awesome game! ^o^

Me super try to get everyone's route but still stuck with Wynnie

Only downloaded this out of extreme boredom honestly i dont know what life is anymore this is literally babies first dating sim

I had a hard time choosing between Cadell and Barry they were both my FAVORITE >.<

Hey-o!! Just a doubt, do you have it for Brazilian Portuguese? If not, a thousand apologies!! I don't speak english :P, that's it, bye bye! kisses <33!!

Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately, there are no official translations for my games TwT

This was very cute. 


This game is so cute!


i feel like i have done something great after getting all the endings... whooo keep up the good work !!


This game is so good


omg i love this so much its so cute TT i hope the story was longer


Very endearing and sweet. Working as a nursery teacher was such a cute experience and the kids were so adorable, and small.

Getting to know the kids and their respective guardians/relatives was wholesome, and very authentic.There were struggles, fears, concerns that they expressed that I could sympathise with; I'm not a parental figure, or child anymore, but it was effortless connecting with the characters.It's the reason I can't pick a route I like more, although I have a real soft spot for Gareth and Nia, everyone pulled on my heart strings. 


so adorable! in this game i like Nia, so poor when was child and always saw parents fighting. :( and uncle gogo raise her so lovely story. i love this game! other character so cute and have good backstory. sorry for my bad english


thank you! Your English is just fine, don't worry about it! ^^


This game is so cuteee! My fav were Barry, Aeron and Cadell. They are all so sweet in their own way I just wanna give them a hug. Awee I loved this game so muchh!

cute <3

I had a lot of fun playing this! the pairings were cute with child and guardian and event he ones i thought i wouldn't like ended up being really endearing <3


This is worth the download! I just finished the game today. The story and dynamics between the characters are so adorable.


๐Ÿ˜ not sure what i expected of this,but the kids are so cute.and i just wanna give Cadell a massive hug.

Heyyo~ Don't mind me, just slowly going through my backlog of your games ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ž

Anyways! Thanks for making this game! It was a wholesome ride~ Everyone is lovable in their own right, but my faves are Cadell, Gareth, and Wynn for sure ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

I actually played Gareth's route last out of the main LIs since he wasn't exactly my type, but! The moment he started being all blushy? He stole my heart! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ž

So aye, enjoyed this a whole lot~ Their interactions with the kids are so adorable!! Gave me cavities ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

This game is absolutely adorable!! I had a great time playing it, all the characters are so cute, especially Cadell ( I love him sm!). 
I think I'll even make some fanart or custom assets for the game idk  

So happy to hear it ^^


everyone is so smooth with cringy pickup lines lmao

i only realized till afterward that you have to reject an invite to be able to accept a following invite --kinda confusing if you ask me-- but it was easy to get the endings i was aiming for after that discovery โœŒ

i enjoyed it so much i went for a 100 percent completion

Cadell cutie โค

i wish i can play all your games but it always gets removed after i download it, does anyone have a solution? (im windows btw)

Removed? As in it disappears after downloading? Can you elaborate so I can help out?

it's like it'll show its downloaded but once clicked it'll delete itself and it says "removed"

that is very odd... Does the same thing happen if you download a game from another developer or just mine?

For me it happens with some others, I'm not sure it's my computer. It just says I can't download it or something went wrong? I want to play your game, it looks fun. Not sure what went wrong, hope your day is going well! Thank you for your time and effort!


I've put several of your VNs in a collection to play at some point. So many of them look fun!!! After playing this one (it's the first one I've played by you) I have to say that your writing, character development, and story is amazing! It did not disappoint at all! Thanks soooo much for the VN~


Thanks! Hope you'll like the rest


This one definitely came out at a good time. I just had to put my precious cat down the other day, and the only thing to make me smile was this game. They're always so heartwarming and fluffy, I love it. Aeron has to be my favorite. In fiction, my type is definitely tsundere. 


I'm sorry for your loss. My condolences. Sending lots of love!


Thanks so much. 


I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE playing your games. I think I come onto this website weekly now to see if you have new content haha.

I really liked the hexed pets series, but I couldn't find it anymore, that only means I have all your other games to play though!

Excited to play this game <3 Keep making things that are awesome!


Thanks for playing! I unpublished Hexed Pet since I felt as though it was lacking. But after getting the art and script polished, I do plan on releasing it again!


I'll definitely look out for that! Thank you :)


no because this is so cute
