This was a great experience! It's a solidly written mystery with very fun character interactions, I particularly liked how Cecil is always trying to be a proper gentleman despite being just a little boy with a very sheltered upbringing. It was insanely cute <3 The art is lovely too, with the unique UI details for the two POV characters being a very charming touch, and everything fits wonderfully into the Victorian aesthetic.


Thank you so much, I'm glad you like it! Cecil was very fun to write ♥


I LOVE THE ENDING SO CUTE, AND ART AND STORRY TOO! Also the part with Teddy made me laugh! :)


So glad to hear! Thank you so much for playing ♥


Question, it does have a good ending? OwO

Also I love the art! <3


Yes, it has a happy ending! It only has one ending.


Loved it! Beautiful artwork and animations to go with such a cute story. The characters are wonderful, too (though sometimes I want to strangle Cecil for how dense he is). The part with Teddy certainly got me and Leroy is quite adorable. I've got a lot of questions from the ending, so I'm curious to see if you're planning to continue it? If not, that's alright as well - it certain stands on its own feet. Thanks for making this! :)

Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I've considered making a sequel but nothing planned right now.


I enjoyed this visual novel a lot, the music, the art, the story and the setting were engaging. I can see myself coming back to this like an old favorite book. Can't wait to see more from you.

Thank you so much!! ♥


Enjoyable read so far, even though some things rather predictable. Art is very pretty. I read until chapter 20, save it for tomorrow
