I really loved this visual novel! The perfect sequel to the first game. The looking around mode was a really awesome addition! The escape room was my absolute favorite. Things like that really spice up visual novels in my opinion. Great job, I can't wait to see your future projects!
Soft Drizzle: B-Track
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Soft Drizzle: B-Track is a short visual novel about friendship and Halloween Festivals. It even includes an escape room!
This game is a sequel to my previous tiny visual novel, Soft Drizzle. You can play it without having played the first one, but I recommend playing it first!
I had a lot of fun developing this game, I hope you enjoy it!
- Click to advance the text and examine objects.
- Click to select an option when prompted.
- You can press Alt + Enter on Windows to switch the game to fullscreen, if you want, but it has been designed to run in a windowed and I don't really like when it goes that big. But to each their own!
If you get stuck in the escape room you can download the file Soft Drizzle B Track - Clues.zip that contains a number of clues (including the solution) for all the puzzles.
I composed the music and drew the character sprites and UI, etc. The subway sound effects was created by TheMSsoundeffects. Other sound effects were taken from the SoundJay website.
Bugs and stuff - PLEASE READ THIS!
If you spot a typo or a bug please tell me!
- It seems that in some situations, saving and loading your game in the escape room can result in some items disappearing, leaving you trapped there for good. If this is your case, save, close the game, open it again and load your save file and everything should be working fine. This issue should not be present in the macOS version. I will release a Windows version with the bugs (and typos) fixed later today!

So I'm checking the Spooktober 2020 Jam submissions and find yours. At first I thought it was a horror game, but turns out it's a wholesome game.
The Characters sprites and persona are really adorable, really love the chemistry between the three of them. I also love the pixel looks, it makes it special. The sound composition are also excellent. Can't wait to enter the escape room.
Hey, thank you for the video! I will watch it as soon as possible, I'm glad you are enjoying the game so far! 😊
Finally finishing it, the end kind of suspicious, luckily it was just a prank. Loving this game. For the Escape Room I think there should be more clue to be added because I was kind of confused on how to solve it and have to check the clue document a little bit. Would love to see these trio again one day!
A very good-looking visual novel, such a creative art style! The overall narrative is quite uneventful for my taste, but this might be due to the fact that I don't play visual novels very much. The writing needs a bit more attention since there's just too much repetition and clunky dialogue, but since it's a game jam game it's understandable. The escape room is great, and the adventure point and click mechanic overall is the best part. Great music and I hope you put out more stuff!
Thank you for the video! I'm watching it right now. Yes, the narrative is uneventful, but that's by design. It's a day out with friends, and nothing more. I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the review!
Both this & the first game were lovely, cozy experiences! They each felt like a real, nostalgic fun day with your best friends. The writing & art were very charming, and the game length was just right for capturing that feeling of an awesome day. I hope we get to spend more time with Himari and Fuyuko in even more games in the future c:
Thank you very much! I'm super glad you liked it. I don't really know if we'll see more of Fuyuko and Himari in the future, but I sure hope so! Thank you for your comment c:
AAAAAAAAAA THE PERFECT SEQUEL <33
