Was a really well made visual novel! It was sweet and really wholesome! The art was super cute and adorable and the music matched the tone and ambience of the game so well. The story was well made too! It was linear and in a little time, it brought out as much character development as possible. (Video below if anyone's interested!)

The personalities of the characters you've made aer great and really likeable; they aer funny, interesting and lovable in their own ways and really fun to see what they say next.

Overall, it's a really well made game and one can see the love and hard work you've put into this. Great job on it and good luck for future projects!

OMG!!! This was a great visual novel. My partner and I played it together and at the end, we wanted more stories from this world! The character designs are awesome and the friends of jaime are funny. Really hope there's a part 2 or another story in this world! GREAT JOB!

i'm going to be playing this game soon and i could already see how cute this game is going to be! thank you for this.. tired for spooky stuff LOL!

This was such a cute game! The artstyle is so charming, specially the colors. And the dialogue with the group chat was HILARIOUS! You should make a full game with that vibe. Overall, loved it!

I had a lot of fun playing "Dreaming by Day" If you want to check out this review I did here is the link!

This was great! I really love your art and color scheme. The UI for the messaging was also super cool! 

Hazel and Kierra's designs were fantastic. 
I did feel like I might be a bit old for the humor though!! 

I've added to my show case on my itch page, if you'd rather it wasn't there just let me know :)

The story was really good, I kinda like Kierra because of her friendly personality UwU

Just want to give a suggestion, maybe you can add some more choices or different endings so the game will be more fun. 

(Edit: Also I like Hazel's personality too, she is kind eventhough she appeared to be rude and salty in the beginning of the game)

What a great mini novel! I'd love a feral clown pov to be honest

The story is a good idea. It would be great if the "dream sequence" was longer to enjoy it even more. Maybe also invent more choices to make it more difficult to get back?
