A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android

Halloween Hearts is a visual novel where you can date/befriend spooky Monster anime girls (and guys)! There are 4 main routes to choose from, 2 secret routes, and 11 endings to get (7 bad endings, 3 normal endings, 1 true ending).

This game was created in about 1 month after I had a burst of inspiration playing visual novels all day. Estimated playtime (for all endings) is 1-2 hours, depending on your reading speed.

-Content warning: 
This game contains minor depictions of violence, horror, and mentions of death. Also, the very occasional screen shake, loud noises and flashes during certain scenes. There are also many descriptions of pre-marital HAND-HOLDING in this game (!!). If you are uncomfortable with these sorts of things, please avoid. Other than that, this game is actually pretty SFW. Recommended for ages 12+

Ugh this was SO GOOD!!😫❤ I dont wanna sound down bad or anything but Darius is SO CUTE🥰🥺 I wish there was more or like a good ending with him atleast, ofc that would defeat the purpose of the true ending but hes such a sweetheart Haha. Amazing job👏

Damn I just realized some of these comments are oldish. Guess I'm late but still, great game

(+1)

Haha thank you very much, Darius sure is popular! I might have to include him in the next game I'm making too :)

(+1)

looking forward to that 🥰

Well, I have fallen to the lowest of lows. I started playing dating sims. But no, this was really well done, I enjoyed it.

(+1)

OMG. This game ducking slaps. I would let Darius bite me any day!!!

this games files contain the IDP: generic virus u maybe should fix that

(+2)

Hey! Thanks for the concern, but I assure you the game is virus-free. Sounds like a false positive from an over-sensitive antivirus software, which has happened with ren'py games before. This game has 1.5k+ downloads and has no issues of a virus have sprung up since, so I wouldn't worry about it.

LMAO found that stupid Niggaballs on here too.

You dont need to worry about not being able to have an actual relationship.  Thats a non issue for you because that is something you ate never going to have in your miserable pathetic excuse for a fucking life.  Not even on an NSFW game.  You are literally THAT sorry.

Show post...

i thought all of our boots had a very good relationship with Niggaballs ass?

Show post...

Honestly I was excited at first but this game is ass in my personal opinion now bear in mind that the game in and of itself has no issues except for how the relationships end you literally have to do absolutely nothing to get a good ending otherwise you either die or everyone hates them now you can't have an actual relationship and that in my personal opinion makes it garbage but I will be fair and say everything else was perfect it had good character development the art was really nice and honestly I was in love until I realized that the one reason I got the game which was to date a monster girl wasn't achievable in this game that the description literally says that you can date them

Show post...

Niggaballs... The only ass here is you, going board to board whining and bitching about every little dumbass thing that tardive head of yours can think up.

Show post...

i will be fair and say you are without doubt the most rotten example of a human alive today.  all you do is troll comment board to comment board crying because you are such a fucking failure at life and downloading these kinds of games are your own form of social interaction.

commit suicide or something

I like the idea of the game, but what I don't like is no matter what happens if you pick a Monster you'll always get a bad ending.

(+2)

Never mind, figured it out but it would be amazing to add a relationship ending to the story.

(+1)(-1)

Yeah I get that - at the time of creation I was heavily inspired by VNs like DDLC that only had bad endings for characters routes. There is a happy ending for everyone but not for each character individually :( 

Admittedly though, I quite like the bittersweetness of it ;)

(+2)

this is awsome, hope you will make sequel(maybe about their lives as adults?) or prequel(SPOILER_ALERT it would be brilliant to see what exactly happened in their village END_OF_SPOILER) also thanks for instructions how to get true ending, even tho it was useless to me xD (i triedevery possible option until i found true ending. then i was like "hey there is readme wonder what its for?"... yeah i should read it earlier ;_; , guess thats what im gonna do with every game from now on) anyway thanks, you made one of my favorite games :)

(+1)

Thank you very much for your kind words & feedback!! - On android I have now put instructions on how to get the True End in the about section.

I've thought about maybe making a sequel comic or something of the sort, but I think right now I want to focus on entirely new projects and stories~! I might return again and add something extra, who knows ;)

(+2)

whatever your next work gonna be, i'm in :D

(+3)

Hey, this game was fun. I streamed it for my podcast's spooky visual novel stream. : )

(+3)

Thank you, I'll check it out!

(+3)

Hey. I played your game and recorded a video about it. I think that the game is wonderful. I got the normal ending with Alice. The story is fascinating. I did not find any bugs or issues at all so far. If you want to cut your game out of the video, let me know. However, if you like the video, I make similar videos every day. I will be happy if you subscribe. Anyway, I enjoyed playing your game.

(+1)

Hey that's really cool, I'd love to see what other endings you get!

(+1)

hi again. I replayed your game and got many more endings. all of them are neutral or bad. You can see it yourself here:

Ayy thanks again!!

Funny game (except for the event of Red Moon night). Cute artstyle with cute girls.

It only sucks than it's not possible to get any good end if I chose to befriend only one of the monsters.  Chia ate me :( 

Tbh I didnt mind her eating me. Shes a cutie😩🔪 Darius is a heartbreaker tho

(+1)

Dairus killed me :(

(+1)

It won't let me launch the game... I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled it a bunch but it just keeps telling me "Nothing that can be launched was found."

i was wondering what path i should go for the true ending if you guys could give me hints without spoiling to much for me

Hello everybody!

I really loved this game. Yorripi did a great job giving each character such a unique personality and made the story interesting with its twists and turns!

I would recommend if you are interested checking out my Let's Play that I did when Yorripi reached out to me right here!

Yorripi's art  style is absolutely gorgeous and the interactions with characters  were smooth. The innocence in the game is heart warming.

I hope you guys give this game a go and share it  with your friends!

Thanks again Yorripi for  reaching out to me - I am so honoured to be able to witness this game.

Chia is best spider gf even if she... well... spoilers

I'm new to itch, I guess comments from reviews aren't shared here? So I'll repeat my feedback just in case.

Delightful characters, solid sound design, and definitely enjoyable. The routes were a bit uneven, I'd have loved more story for Minerva for example (my favorite of the designs). I think the general expectation when creating character-centered routes is more story and an ending related to those characters, but it was still overall good. 

If you feel inclined, you may want to expand and clarify the True Route walkthrough just a bit. I was tripped up around Day 4 and 5 especially, but that could just be me.

All in all, good stuff, and I look forward to seeing more games from you if you choose to!

The Undertale and Spiderman references in Chia's room are pure gold! I loved this game. The art style, the story, the characters, the choices, etc. Everything is so awesome! Great work 10/10 would recommend :)

PS  I made a huge mistake and played most of the game without sound. I encourage people NOT to do that. When I finally played with sound, I realized how much I was missing out on. The music is awesome. LISTEN TO IT!

(+2)

Love the art and already cant wait to play

Awesome, let me know how you find it! :D

(1 edit) (+2)

I WAS NOT PREPARED. FOR HOW CUTE EVERYONE WOULD BE IN EVERY WAY, THE AMAZING WRITING, THE VIVID STORY AND WORLD BUILDING, And  the excellent twists and turns in the story. The difficulty took me by surprise but everything felt right. I only wish i knew how to get all of the endings.

(Post scrip-tum: I loved almost every joke that I found)

(post post scrip-tum: was that to much words for a comment? I don't know i'm filled with insatiable energy of loving this game)

(+1)

YO thank you so much!! I'm on the bus reading this trying not to tear up, haha. I'm really happy you enjoyed it!

If you need help with any of the endings, check the readme file, & feel free to DM/PM me if you're confused.

Have a great day ^^

GO MAKE A FULL GAME SO I CAN THROW MONEY AT YOU. (once I have a cent to my name anyways). You are a very talented creator and I can't wait to see what you do next. You have a wonderful day.

(PS: The true end is amazing!)
