A downloadable demo for Windows

"But I love you." is a visual novel/dating sim...or at least, it starts off that way.

Once you get in town, the occupants all flock to you, intrigued by the stranded newcomer. At first, they try to help in their own little ways, but as they grow attached, they try to convince you to stay with them. Forever. That's when you notice things are very, very wrong in this town, from the datable characters to the setting. Once the player starts to notice a trend of the girls starting to be slightly, well, nuts, it becomes a horror game. The game still features multiple endings like a dating sim, some of them romantic, some where nothing happens, and a few where the player is...dead. You also have the option of ignoring all of the bad stuff and pretending everything is a-ok to keep scoring with the ladies.

quick question is there way to make the game full screen?

if this game ends up being good, i will garentee that i tip the creator to asist in te continuation of this game, i will pledge $10 to this game (once i get paid on the 7th) if i end up enjoying it.

I saw your trailer, and even though I'm not really interested in playing it, I do wish you the best of luck on working on the game towards the finish line. #Confidence 

made me curious

A little disappointed that the demo is so short and that the project seems to have been abandoned? I enjoyed the initial bits that we did get to see. I do hope you pick the project up again soon!


Sad to see that the project hasn't had much if any development for a while, the demo showed some promise. It had some interesting characters and a decent story premise. The demo had a few issues, such as text repeating once or twice but that was it. 

Perhaps it will be picked up again, and if it is I'll be quite interested in playing it.

Cheers and best wishes.


The game is done the creator took the money from kick starter and ran and worked on other games. 

The voice acting was the only thing that was left the game itself is done and hasn't been released. 

I am working on the game at the moment in the starting stages.

Who's the creator that ran off?

Couldn't they get in legal trouble for taking all that money (it was 5x over the target goal, and 43k)

Like, that's really scummy, considering it was an extremely high amount of money.


Amazing game!! Different from other games. In a really good way. I hope this will have a successful release! :-)

Demo was neat and the full game sounded promising; has the project been scrapped or is it just on hold?


I am one of the original kick starter backers. So what the other backers found out the game isn't done. 

The voice actors didn't get called out or anything. The game isn't coming out it's dead. 

Thanks for the update, that is a shame.

im not getting the game since its dead, but the description sounded promising

Yeah i decided to work on the game myself i am starting from scratch so  far it's going well but i need another programmer and  artists.

Because i am still working on the intro section because i am still working on the story.

holy crap! ill look around on the internet for some programmers and artists, ill sure download/buy 

I am  releasing the game for free. As many people that have bought into the kick starter already i don't want their money.

Because we got ripped off on that and yeah.. the goals were met i will be releasing the game free of charge. 

I might be interested in programming for you if you still need one. Do you know what language you're going to use?

Renpy uses python i need some help with the dating sim part and i am working with some people doing the first chapter.

I need to contact the artist that  made one of the characters on kickstarter one day i want to get a playable demo out before 

adding the art assets. 

when is the game going to fully realse and are you going to have to pay?

So far I love this game I made a playthrough of it and I like it I hope to see a menu and Fullscreen mode and more stuff in the full version. I have made a Video about it so if you want to then, you can watch it here.


Any update on the full release of this game?

(Edited 1 time)

Did a playthrough of the demo! Loved it and hope to see a lot more of it. I will have to preorder it!


You can go again to a location you have already visited and it loop

At the Vivian part, there seems to be a loop of the dialogue.

Also during the Vivian scene, I am not sure if it is intentional or not, but she seems to not express herself by changing sprites as much as the other girls.
