I´M POOR, SORRY

*Cilantro voice* A crime of the highest degree.

Goodness, I never expected what I got out of this game. I love it SO DANG MUCH. This was so well written and paced, I'm so happy I took the time to play this game. I actually had no idea that you/some of you guys were the devs of the Magical Otoge series, but now it makes sense with how much I enjoyed the banter and writing in this game. This game has left me feeling happy and I truly enjoyed every part of it. Same with the art/bg/cg, it was all so beautiful! 

Even in all its ridiculousness, this game still has such a concise, funny, and even emotional story. Do you know how hard that is to do as a writer?! I commend you for your skill of being able to tell such a good story, design super dimensional characters, and make us love the characters so much ALL while nonsense is happening. I love it all.

(The ending made me want more xD I was shocked and excited about deep dish until I saw the fund page's price LOL. I was like dang, don't clown me devs, I REALLY need MOAR.)

Thank you guys for making such a great game!

(+1)

Aaaa thanks so much, it sounds like you really enjoyed it!!! <3

And don't worry, me and the others have special things planned for the sequel... Stay tuned!!

(+2)

If Project Deeper Dish dose not get made I'll do the scream forever ;_;

I didn't know I needed Pizzaro in my life.


But I'll take 3 copies(get it, get it? Clone joke...)

I'll leave...but not without buying the PDF first!

(+1)

I loved every part of this. Thank you so much for creating such an amazing game! o(TwT)o

I had a lot of fun playing this game and getting to know the characters. For all it's goofiness, it was still incredibly engaging, and all the characters are lovable. Though Pierro is still best boy. 

Also, as a fellow microbiologist, I was ecstatic to see some microbiology representation. Never thought I'd see a character with this profession, and in an otome of all places. 

Anyway, thank you so much for making this game! It really brightened up my day and put a smile on my face!

Wow another microbiologist!! (°ロ°) ! Glad you liked the game!!!

i

need

more

cilantro

(damn, that's a line i never thought i'd say in my entire life)

This was a really fun and well-made game for an April Fools! I immediately fell for the art style and all the puns. Puns everywhere. The characters were all likeable too, but Cilantro was just so ridiculous and unabashedly jerky that he quickly became my favorite.

Glad you liked the game! The CEO type wins yet again...

(1 edit) (+2)

This is the cutest as well as the dumbest thing I've ever played! The characters were hilarious and Cilantro's pure love for Anne Chovy  (ngl, it took me a while to get over everyone's names) won me over. His ending was too bittersweet tho :(  

Thank you for the hard work you obviously put into this. I laughed lots and this really made my day! 

btw I know it's a joke but I'd be totally willing to back Project Deeper Dish lmao sounds like a great sequel

(+2)

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!!

And don't worry, we have some Plans for Deeper Dish... :o)

hey it okay i made some fanart for  you i really like this game!! =3

Hi there! Yes, fanart is totally welcome! Glad you liked the game!

(+1)

Holy moly. This game is one of my favourite visual novels of all time now.. I was up at 2 in the morning trying not to wake up my parents with my laughing. 

The humour is so well done and it really feels like this is a game you all had a great time making. I am for sure going to buy the PDF!!!! 

"Of all time"!! Thank you!

Here's hoping the sequels meet your standards too!

(+1)

It may be April but this game is definitely no joke.

Terrible, awful puns and lots of refrences but it got balanced beautifully with real heartfelt characters. 

Oh and the art? Just amazing, so slick and pretty and cohesive (where it means to be) 

I had a great time playing this.

Give it a shot!

Deliciously entertaining. I feel like the game itself is a love letter to the memes and trends of the past decade. 10/10, would clown again.

I wish that the trailer at the end was true, I didn't know I needed more clownery in my life xD loved it all!

The other two creators and I have been throwing around ideas; we'd love to make the sequels one day! ;o)

(+1)

Loved it, thanks!

i've just finished playing it for the first time and i really enjoyed it, i even cried a little in the end. i'm probably going to buy the pdf art book to support the creators! 

I--

I still can't believe people are actually crying at our clown game, but I'm happy LOL 😂🤡

(+1)

thank you for this masterpiece

played on twitch with my bro.

(1 edit)

hey! im really interested in playing this but my antivirus is finding an issue with the exe file, is this game safe to play? is there an issue with the files? its the first time it has happened with games i download from itchio so you may wanna look into it?

(2 edits)

Hello, that's a really common problem among Renpy games (it even says that for my computer even though I made it lol), and it's because your computer classifies it as by an unknown developer.

I promise you, I'm not smart enough to program anything malicious into the files.

Examples of more Renpy games having the same problem: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?t=44483

(+2)

thanks for the info! I wasn't worried about you or anything I mostly trust developers and don't worry about things like that, I was more worried about some unknown third party you know 😂 but I'll try the game nonetheless haha thanks for the reply!

(+1)

I've been getting games off itch.io for a long time and only recently made my account. Nearly every game will have that pop-up but I've never had a single issue with anything if that helps :D

i played it already! i have to say im happy i did haha, thanks for your advice!

file "game/extras.rpy" line 137 broke

I couldn't replicate the error but I went ahead and moved some stuff around anyway, so hopefully that fixes the problem!

I didn't know I liked clowns

....
I just finished playing and all I'm gonna say is-


Heartstrings have been tugged.

B) All according to our clown plans.

I-

(+1)

sfjkhe how did I miss this game- leT ME REPAY BY PLAYING IT, I WAS GONNA CRAWL BACK TO OLD GAMES I USED TO PLAY- actually I wouldn't mind playing Magical Otoge Ciel again...

(1 edit) (+3)

i havent played it yet but im so glad someone made a biography of me, thx man (:

(+1)

i-idk how should i feel about this, im having a dilemma of whether to download it or not

(+1)

This was so much fun rip my poor roommates who had to listen to me screech with laughter through these thin thin walls. 

(+3)

I was apprehensive about playing this because clown otome is a hard pitch, but this was honestly so hilarious and fun. XD

(+1)

This is sadly, the last part in my let's play. I had so much fun playing this. All the twists and turns and jokes!! It was awesome. 🤡🍕

Part 2!! This game is hilarious. Loving all the parodies.

(+2)

I can no longer feel any emotion aside from hunger

(+4)

I don't think hunger is an emotion, honk... 🤡


But if it were, that's all Pizzaro feels, too...

Until...

PERHAPS...

MAYBE EVEN... LOVE...??

this is too good for a April Fool's joke or prank. This is the work of three masterminds of plot and wielders of the pen and color. Even with the terrible puns. Batensan, fenori and zzzbookwormzzz, thank you for putting so much work and effort into a silly thing like this. It let me forget my troubles for a while and for that i thank you all. 





ps I wouldn't mind there being an actual calendar of shuiren and the other officers, id buy it. And i can't wait for the next addition next April.

(+1)

!! Thank you for the kind words! I think you mean "terribly good" puns, though 🤡🤡🤡

(+2)

It's a great april fools' game, it will make you cry with laughter and take a shot in the heart 😱

batensan always do great games! I love you work! Thanks to fenori and zzzbookwormzzz too!

Thank you!! <3 I'm glad you like my games!

(+2)

The underwater basket weaving part absolutely killed me! The production value on this "joke" is incredibly high- I mean, this is some top notch stuff. Perhaps we're the April Fools after all for thinking this would just be a throwaway joke?

Thank you! We really wanted to take this joke to the next level :o)

This is amazing!!! Renpy gave me an error when i tried to see the trailer, but other than that no issues! :)

(1 edit)

Hm that's strange! No one else has given me a report like that. Does the error happen every time?

If you have time, please give me the details or email batensan@gmail.com about it!

(1 edit)

i love you 🤡 cilantro is high key hot tho 

🤡 Thank you for playing!

(+2)

dying at the whole puns and parody references x"D you guys are so dedicated to make a full game just for an april fool surprise hahaha keep up the good work! Can't wait for the next upcoming game! /o/

As a long lover of sad clowns I really enjoyed this game! It was really funny, short and sweet with lovable music . 

Plus it was refreshing to see a collab like this between three very different art styles.

Always a huge fan Batensan ! love you xx

Ahh thank you so much!! I'm glad you liked the music, too!!!

See you on the other side of the sauce! :o)
