I cant get the last one of the 3 endings lmao, this game is so cute tho


that was really cute, no homo. it was fun trying to get all three endings, no homo tho


SO CUTTTE! But Why is there no other CG? You can at least show us the picture of them kissing! Or can I get through other endings to see the CG I want to see? (doge)


i love this game!!! so much!!! but by chance were you into homestuck at some point because the dialogue reads like that a tiny bit lmao

oh my god I loved all ten minutes of this game, the story and the ART is just amazing!

Hello! I haven't began to play the game yet because there's a bug where I click "fullscreen" and it zooms in. I try to refresh but it just won't seem to fix it.


I got all the endings! It's very sweet and actually hits a little close to home, even though it's rather wholesome <3 I ship MC and Clay.


I had a little trouble trying to figure out how to navigate and honestly I have no idea if I did good or bad, I mean I managed to get the BOY Ending so maybe okay? Other than that it was a simple but cute game. I will now ship the MC and Clay thank you very much.


So sad TwT

there is no ending where they kiss each other ! But clay is handsome though, and his "friend" too !


this game is good but why does it take 10 mintutes to end the part where you look around


i love this game nut for some reason when it gets to the spacebar bit it wont work. no matter how much i press the pacebar the game dosent respond. can anyone help me fix this?

Same here, I can't get in full screen so the page will just jump down when I press space :( 


it’s a bummer, I really wanted to play this game 




so, I came here from the recommended games of a pixilated horror game, didnt read the description, and was expecting a pixilated horror game. Instead I got a gay cowboy movie theatre romance and I was not disappointed. 10/10 would watch if real.

I LOVEEE THIS!!! Is literally so sweet! And it reminded me a little bit of "Brokeback Mountain" soo it's definitely a masterpiece. <333




OMGG! I would love it! :DDD

your comment gave me the idea of writing the fanfic, i'll be posting the link on here soon!

omg cant wait

Got all the ending!


Dude, this game is awesome! The story and dialogue are so sweet! I hope they make a part two. 


Fantastic game! It was cute and touching. I love it. Realistic and probably relatable to a lot of people in at least one way. Highly recommend!


The scene with the arrow-keys does go on for a bit too long (at least in the browser version). Got all three endings, very cute and stylish game!

Same. It took me out of the game because I was so confused why it was taking so long.


i keep getting the boy ending, is there a guide? 


oh my god. i was not expecting this game to be so good. i'm literally crying over it as i'm writing this. the representation is fabulous, and the dialogue makes it feel so real. it's definitely a new comfort game for me. i seriously can't express how much i love this game!!! <33


I thought the game was just about a "not too deep movie", i didn't know it was gay though, so it was a pleasant surprise, it was so cute i want to cry. This was so good and wholesome, thank u <3
(btw i love the art and colorscheme, it fits just perfectly, as well as the brokeback mountain movie they were watching)


this game is so cute i loved it


This was a cute, short game. I would recommend for new gaymers.




This game was really great! The mini games were fun to play, and the characters felt like real people. I would love to play more games like this in the future.


I love this game!!!! i hope there will be more


ah yes the three endings. reflection, boy and denial


What a great game! On another completely unrelated note, I think I'm gonna ask if my friend wants to go see a movie


what a odd thing to suddenly do! I hope you two have fun as good friends! ;)


This was adorable!!!!


aaaa i adored this <3

I'm having a problem with the meter mini game at the start were it would do nothing. I would click or press any button but it seem to do nothing, im still able to save or load but I'm stuck in that part, does anyone know how to fix it 


okay i know you said that you pressed any button but have you tried space? that's what it says to do. if that doesn't work then try reinstalling it?


That was really cute. Love them


Really cute and nice! The artstyle is stunning and the music is simple and catchy. I really enjoyed the characters and I would honestly play a whole game like this.




Audio bugs frequently, game doesn’t continue at the “arrow key” scene. Nice story, good idea but seems rather quick and dirty programmed.


It's a nice and short game, I enjoyed it a lot. All the endings were very good and the interactions between the guys were nice and cute.


how do you get past the arrow part?


i just tried looking at clay for like a minute, gave up, looked back at the movie and it worked


it's a cute, short and fun game. i already found all three endings! i really enjoyed it
