A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

What if you're cursed to make others laugh?

The 'Jester' is an entity who grants children happiness, but he was just another persona of myth... Until one day he appears on your windowsill and bestows his powers upon you. Now you're inflicted with a pun-curse, and thus begins your journey to cure yourself! 

Upon changing schools, you meet three boarders who seem to have something to do with your curse... 

But little do you know that your curse isn't really what it seems to be...

A few questions you can answer to help me: (you don't need to  answer tho)

1. Whose route do you like best and why?

2. Are you interested in a Lynnette / Akila route where Lynne is the protagonist? If you are, would you rather play it in the same game or a separate game?

When I try to install it on my phone an error with the message 'app not installed' pops up. This has happened before with other games. Can you make an android armeabiv7a version? If you know how to, I would really appreciate it!

Hello, I just uploaded the armeabi-v7a version! I honestly don't know the difference between the versions, but I suppose the armeabi-v7a version works on older builds? Anyway, since I can't test it, do let me know if it doesn't work. Cheers!

It works! Thank you! 😁


Of all the otome-type entries in NaNoRenO (I think I got through all of them) this felt the most otome-like, actually! It followed the standard setup and kept a good, constant tempo. I'm only sad the puns didn't penetrate as deeply as the setup suggested, but I love Neim's energy and how she literally does not have a sad face. Love a punster of action.

I'm a nerd so I enjoyed Rico's route (as well as Neim's struggles in the club because haven't we all experienced something like that), but I also like memes so the fun times of Matt's route were side-splittingly MAGNIFICENT, especially the last choice. I also appreciate well-done bad endings so Seth's bad ending turning into high-octane fuel was emotionally heavy but oddly cathartic. Lastly, "yes" to Question 2! If it's just that one route and the same timeline, I'd like if it were within the same game.

Hello catcracker! Thank you so much for your kind and meaningful comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the game! Yup, to be honest, sometimes (especially in Seth's route), I was too focussed on the action bits that I forgot all about Neim's pun curse... Haha. 

I had so much fun working on Matt's route, so I'm thrilled that you liked the meme references (cuz people don't usually go for meme-intensive otome games). Rico's route was partly based on a real-life situation, so I guess it's more relatable. And Seth's bad end... boy I had so much fun writing the angst. I'll work on Lynnette and Akila's route sometime in the future. Thank you once again for the valuable feedback!


Hello! I just downloaded the game and it looks so fun! :D I was wondering where the cheat sheet was and then I realized that the game wasn't updated yet xD I actually wanted to check the cheat sheet since the last math question looked unsolveable :') Since adding two sides of a triangle can't be less than the third side. And then I realized it was an impossible to solve question xD I love the MC so much! I know I'm going to have fun playing this game! owo

By any chance is Rico a tsudere?

Hello, harmonywish! Thanks for playing the game! Sorry, I just finished uploading the new version of the game, so I think the new cheat sheet should be there now! 

For the math question, actually one side is suppposed to be square root of 73, not 73, but the square root symbol wouldn't show up for some reason hahha. Also, this question is supposed to be solveable... Like my friend solved it, but I have no idea how to do it.

And yes haha, Rico is a tsundere :)
