He decided to surprise his girlfriend Miyuki - he bought a bouquet of flowers and booked a restaurant. But when he went to her office, he saw Miyuki cheating on him with another guy. He immediately ran out of the office in anger. In Central Park, he meets Yume, a young guitarist who, like him, has no one to spend Christmas with. Her cheerfulness distracts Naoki for a while. But running away from the problem is not the solution.>>Romantic Christmas story, 2 adorable girls with cute voices (and English voice-overs), awkward situations, and more than 12 CG, 6 tracks and 5 backgrounds!

Had known him since he was 11. Started dating him in high school. She is the opposite of Yume. She becomes shy when she stays>>alone with Naoki but usually she's quite energetic. She feels embarrassed when Naoki shows his care in public. Miyuki is worried that she is not "interesting" enough for Naoki, and she is jealous that Yume and Naoki have a lot in common.>>Yume>>Date of birth: January 10, 16 years old.Fun-loving, childishly open-minded girl. Originally from a county town, she moved to Tokyo to escape her parents' custody. She quarrelled with her father because of her passion for guitar. He wanted her to learn guitar lessons when she was a child, but she refused and at the age of 16 (which is too late by her father's standards) suddenly wanted to return. Admires Naoki.>>Features>>Achievements have been added to the game! And there is also macOS support, with Linux versions coming soon.
