I loved this so much. It has not left my mind days after playing it. Gosh, will there be a sequel? 

Spoiler (if it can be classified as that):

Will there be a glimpse of the life of the girl who gave herself to a life without romance? Time will tell after all. Will we ever get to see that?  Will there be ANY chance at all that they do fall in love?  Aaaahhh it hurts to think about it.  Either way I'm just amazed by this. 


I also forgot to say, I like the color scheme of the characters, actually everything about the game, but I took special interest in the music (so fitting and chilling, I would leave the game open on my computer as I drew) I also loved the pretty art (I especially loved the character designs and their color scheme as well, like is there a meaning to it? Like Rose being bubbly is assigned to be blonde?) 


Hi there, writer here - seeing your comment is nearly enough to make me blush! Words can't describe how happy I am to see you enjoy the story so much. I'm sure the amazing art and music are just as big a part of that as the words themselves!

Thank you for playing, and I'm so glad you could find so much to enjoy in Without Romance!


This was a short but thought-provoking experience, and definitely worth your time!  An interesting story that doesn't outstay its welcome, and not a stale moment.  The art style is also really nice, and the music compliments it well.  Overall, an effective story!

Thank you for playing! Everybody worked hard on it, and it's great to hear it paid off! As the writer, I'm super happy to hear such praise, so thank you again!


No problem!  I think it's one of the best games I've tried here on Itchio.  I hope my upcoming game ends up being as good!


That was really incredible. I loved the art and could clearly understand each character's story and emotions. It was so good but so sad :( I got chills at the end.


I'm so happy you enjoyed it! As the writer, your comment brought a smile to my face, so thank you for telling us your thoughts!


This is a really good VN! The art is beautiful and the narrative portrays the emotions so well! I'm just sad that it ends on a bitter note, but not all stories have a happy ending, right? Keep up the good work!

Hi there, I'm the writer for Without Romance - sorry for the late reply, but thank you so much for playing! I absolutely loved hearing what you thought, and am so glad you enjoyed it!
