Glad to see everyone loves Beans~


I knew I had to check this out as soon as I saw the space cat. I would fight the sun if Beans asked me to; he's purrfect. (I also adore all the puns. :3 )

This game wound up being one of the top picks for my annual NaNoRenO spotlight post—here's the link if you'd like to check it out!

Congrats on yet another successful NaNo entry. I look forward to future updates! :)

We all LOVE Beans sooooo much, you have no idea!

Thanks for the kind words, and for including us on your spotlight!

We're planning on releasing Sunny Side Up! on Steam on June 1st, and the Steam version will include all the planned features, so please look forward to that!

While I can't relate to the MC on a personal level, seeing how they start discovering themself and become happy with themself is a beautiful thing, same with Sunny! All the characters are very charming and I wish I could have seen a bit more of them! Also, I'm absolutely in love with the background art and UI, it's SO good! Can't wait for the update!
