This was hella cute.
Soft Drizzle is a short, 64x64 resolution visual novel about friendship and rainy days.
Made in 7 days for LOWREZJAM 2020.
I had a lot of fun developing this game, I hope you enjoy it!
A whole playthrough should be 15 - 20 minutes long. Also: the game has some typos. Sorry. I wrote most of the screenplay during a long, coffee fueled night writing session and my mind was not in the right place. This will probably not be addressed in the near future as this was a jam game and I'm currently working on other projects.

- Please bear in mind that the game doesn't save your progress.
I composed the music and drew the character sprites and UI, etc. The subway and rain sound effects were created by TheMSsoundeffects and ThunderSlav, respectively.
If you liked Soft Drizzle, there's a sequel available!

This game was such a treat! Thank you for making this. I love rain too, and the whole vibe of the game was amazing. It made me think of the little things that we usually miss appreceating in life. Wonderful soundtrack as well! One day I plan to make my own little games too, and yours has only inspired me more to do so :)
Cheers and have a great day!
Thank you so, so much! I'm so glad you liked it! I hope you can make your own games too, best of luck! Great day to you too!
This was such an adorable & chill experience! I love the simplicity of the story. Makes me wish that I was in their friend group lol! I also love the music & art style. Wonderful job!
Thank you very much! I'm super, super happy you liked it! There's a sequel if you are interested, no pressure though. I'll watch the video asap! Thanks! 😊
Pardon me if this is an odd question but! I am very curious! How did you get the text beeps to work? It's been a hot minute since I've made a VN, and I could never figure that out
Haha, no problem. I have made two beep sounds for each character. Every time I print a letter I play one at random. That's it! I made the beep sounds using a NES soundfont in FL Studio. Does this answer your question? 🤔
I just played and captivated me right away, a beautiful pixel art, funny dialogues and everything well fitted in a 64x64 resolution. Congratulations ^^
Wonderful game! I enjoyed it thusly. Lovely soundtrack and plot too. The characters are funny and cute. Great job! :D
Thank you very, very much! I'm so happy you enjoyed it so much! Also thank you very much for the donation, it's much appreciated!
This game is delightgful! It definetely lives up to all the tags it has.
This game is really interesting and lovely! And the art is beautiful. By curiosity, did Fuyuko manage to have her super computer?
Haha, thank you! Yes, Fuyuko got the computer in the end. They ate paninis and then played some very scary FPSs (with the lights on).
This is a really sweet game, and I'm amazed you were able to create a visually interesting yet easy-to-read visual novel with such restrictions!
