I'm so happy you're eager Emma, the full release should hopefully be sometime next year.

Hi Emma! The Steam page is now up, alongside it's August release date.
Breathless: Will you Understand Me? on Steam (steampowered.com)

yay :3

How many romanceable characters are there? 

(1 edit)

None, as this isn't a dating sim. The only character Aki will be dating is Megumi, but there are a lot of characters that you can hang out with.

how's the development progressing?

It's progressing okay. It paused for a bit because I needed time to get adjusted to a new location, but I should have a new demo out soon.

cant remeber if i asked this already but how much will it cost? also will it be on steam

It will cost around $5.99 and it will be Steam.


why is it 13 plus tho?

Mainly due to language and certain topics covered in the game.

Waiting for the full game

I'll work my hardest to deliver a full game you love!

I'm glad you're excited. It will hopefully sometime next year.


Finally something other than Doki Doki or Yandere Sim.The game looks promising but is it gonna be released on  Google play store or on a third party app store?if so will it be a paid game?

Haha! Variety is always good. 

Yes this will be released in the Google Play Store as a paid game, it won't be more than $5.00.

roads backround seem to cause the same issue as kitchen on android

The Android version was updated recently. Are you playing version 1.1?



Gotcha! I decided to apply the same fix to all backgrounds, so hopefully, it will work now. Please let me know if anything else is acting up.
