I haven't played the demo yet, but just looking at the screenshots, damn! I love the art style *o*; Does the game's artist have a tumblr or a deviantart? I'd love to see more of their art!

After flunking out of University, Natsu has been working the night shift at the local MegaKonbiniMart to make ends meet. She's got an annoying co-worker who calls her "Flunkee-chan" whose sole purpose in life is to make her miserable. There's the creepy businessman who's only interests are of the 2D persuasion, and he can't help scaring away other customers. The foreigner who buys snacks in bulk and is hiding a secret. And then there's signs of a customer with sticky fingers.
How will Natsu's Konbini Life unfold?

Hey thanks so much for the kind words, I'm blushing haha!
I don't actually have a site for my art at all, but there's more art coming for the full version of the game (which will be free!), so please keep an eye out for updates! We really hope you enjoy it, thanks again <3
Konbini Life was an amazing demo to play through. It's already surpassed many dating sims on the market today. I love that it doesn't take itself very seriously, and that it plays up certain stereotypes to make it funnier. To me, it has the framework of a basic dating sim paired with stunning art and an interesting and lovably cheesy story. I actually had to think hard and weigh the consequences of the choices I made, which is a sign of good narrative! However, I would suggest making a consequence for situations that you answer "wrong." It would add to the replay-ability of the game and give the player more pressure to pick the right choice. Other than that, I am extremly excited for this game and looking forward to it!
Thank you so much arthoex, this is one of the best comments I've read on Konbini Life, it made me very happy :D We are definitely working on refining the consequences and making the dialogue more clear as to whether you are heading down a good path. Hopefully discovering more about Natsu and her journey will drive players to be more selfish, we want this to not just be a game about helping your chosen guy (but it's still there too haha). We are very excited to releasing the full game next year sometime (hopefully >.>) Thanks again!
the demo was so so good!!! i'm really looking forward to the full game ;;___;;!!
i'm not sure if this was ever addressed but would you consider incorporating a bit of voice acting for the full version :"O ??
OH! MY GOD! YES!
Heya, thank you for playing Konbini Life :D :D :D As we are doing this for fun and for free we don't really have plans for any voice work. We will have music though and sound effects so hopefully that's a consolation ~(?.?~) :D
AAAAA this was so good! I loved it! The writing is so funny and interesting! And the art is so lovely! SO MANY EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!! just. 10/10 can't wait for the full game
We are blushing, you're too kind :3 Can't wait to see what you think of the final product once it's released <3
ahhhh the art. the dialogue. so glorious. so very very glorious. but really this was an extremely well made demo. the plot and story. not a cliche line in sight. or do i just have low standards (??) nah. heh. 2birds have done well. can't wait to see the finished game.
Aww thanks! We were going hell for leather to get something out before the jam ended. Look forward to some more flow-y dialogue, new character poses and dare I hope CGs ;)
OH MY GOD! GROUCHY IS SOOOO SMEXY!!! *drools a little*
how far into development is this?? I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FULL VERSION!
We are trucking along! Slowly but surely :3 We're looking forward to sharing more but want to avoid any potential spoilers :)
The arty looks beautiful and the characters just fun enough to be interesting. THe premise looks simple; modern, nothing special. Yet the way the game is presented already build tension and a the hint at an intimate atmosphere. Looks cozy. I'm going to download it. ^^
Just download this game today and i loved it , cant wait for the full version
Big thanks from 2Birds for playing our demo! We were gunning for a full version for the jam, but bit off more than we could chew, haha. The full FULL game is going to be tons better now, so we can't wait for you to play it! Thanks again!
This is a wonderful demo! The routes are not even finished and I feel like the characters are easily understandable and connectable. I would love to see this continued!
Aw, thank you! It's definitely getting continued and we have some pretty crazy stuff for the characters in store! We've come to love the cast even more, so it's a lot of fun working with them. :) No date as of yet, but keep an eye out for the full version in the future!
I absolutely love this demo! I've been replaying it so much (I love grouchy, him and Natsu have the cutest interactions!) I almost forgot it was a demo because I was too busy playing through all the options. I was wondering how far you've gotten with this game, cause I would love to see the finished version!
Hey, thank you so much for playing our demo! Both Birds are working pretty hard to finish up all the grand plans we have for the game, so please keep an eye out for updates at this Konbinient Link! There's no hard date for a release, but we'll be updating the forum when we reach major milestones. :) Thanks again!
so amazinggg!!! like it so much. I'm wondering when will it release if anyone know please tell me ^^. and i'm waiting for this amazing game
Hello, 2Birds here. No official release date yet or even an estimate, sorry! We don't want to make promises we can't keep haha. We are both actively working on it in a spare time though so we definitely want to finish it :)
Wow! What an adorable demo!!! I am in LOVE with the art style, everything is so gorgeous my heart can't take it what the heck. I love Grouchy oh my god!!!!
his eyes jfc MARRY ME <3 <3 <3 He's beautiful lol, but I do like his back story as well. Hoping he'll be able to buy his family's store back. :~) Wish there was more about Prince and Glasses, they are quite interesting themselves. There are teeny tiny grammatical errors but I overlook them because this game is just so cute uGH.
Curious to see how this will play out...I'm looking forward to playing the whole game! Great job!!!
I love this, and I can't wait for the rest to come out :-) The art style is BEAUTIFUL, and I love all the characters! Natsu is so relatable to me lol, and I'm sure she would be to a lot of people!! My favorite was Prince, first of all because he is handsome af, and secondly because his story seems like it will be interesting!! I am excited to find out more about him hehe.. Good luck 2Birds!! :^)
We hope you'll enjoy the full extent of Prince once the full game is out! (He's an interesting one let me tell you ;3) Thanks for leaving a comment and keeping us motivated!
I kinda forgot this was a demo when I played it and was sad when it ended. Im so hyped for the rest to come out tho! Good luck 2Birds, it's looking great.
It ends so abruptly too haha, we really ran out of time XD Thanks for commenting and following! We hope you will enjoy the full release in the future :)
Ah man, as soon as I stumbled on this, I knew it would be gold, and I was not disappointed! I love the konbini setting, and the art style is just gorgeous! Also, Natsu is a great MC, and I love how snarky she is. All the characters are hilarious and unique, and I'd be lying if I said my heart didn't flutter a little when "Prince" made his appearance ;) And heck, I even liked Hoody tbh (terrible, I know, but I can't help it).
My favourite is Grouchy, though. I mean, he's so dedicated, and he can be a bit mean, but seriously, who can resist that blushing face of his? Also, his and Natsu's bickering is adorable. I have no idea how I feel about Glasses yet though, he's kinda weird, but then again, aren't we all? I'm so excited to see where this goes.
Also gonna scream about the art again because goddamn, it's detailed. Their expressions are so wonderful to look at, and don't even get me started on the eyes!!!! Y'all are so talented <3
This game is so refreshing, and I've been searching for a nice romantic comedy for a long time, and I can't wait for the full release! Already experiencing Hiroto-withdrawal hahaha <3
Thanks so much for the motivating words :D We're working hard on making each of the characters unique. I was sad we didn't get to explore much of Prince or Glasses in the demo (and Hoody even) so I hope you will come to like them as much as Grouchy! I too love Grouchy and Natsu's exchanges, they're always fun to write X3 Super happy you like the art too! Bird2 is such a talented gal <3
If the demo is any indication, this will hella fun to play when it comes out :D
I'm glad Natsu is a character with a face...it's actually more disturbing to not have a character than to have an avatar that doesn't look like you...
Anyway, looking forward to all the humor and Grouchy-kun! Also, fabulous art style, guys.
Thank you! Early on we didn't have a physical MC, but we agree, it was weird! It felt like there was something missing and then Natsu was born :3 I hope you enjoy the final product once we release :)
Found this game in itch.io while browsing for next game to play, and downloaded it right away! Since I recently watched a comedy genre J-dorama with konbini setting so I wanted to play this too lol (￣ー￣). And... I don't regret it because I love this game!! <3 This is only a demo, but it's so funny! I laughed way too much; my brother gave me annoyed look while I was playing it in our living room lol xD The dialogue were funny and cute. The art is excellent! Gosh I love the characters designs, the artist is talented for sure! Each characters has distinct personality. Their bickering and dialogues were the best things happened in this game! Good job for the creator, two thumbs up! ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ
Honestly, the theme used in this game is very relatable for me since I'm feeling the same as Natsumi's feeling nearing my own graduation, even our thoughts are similiar lol, sorry for my random rants (-̩̩̩-̩̩̩-̩̩̩-̩̩̩_-̩̩̩-̩̩̩-̩̩̩-̩̩̩)
Thanks for making this game! \(^O^)/ And I read your replies for other commenters that you'll make it free to play, aaaaah I can't ask for more since I love free game (●≧艸≦) lol~
(so shameless haha)
I'm looking forward for the full game! Sorry if there are some mistakes in my words, English isn't my first language after all~! Ganbatte minna!! ^O^
So glad you found it and liked it! :D (I must check out this konbini drama, it sounds fun!) We're happy you like the looks and can relate to the characters (We've all been in Natsu's shoes at some point, you're okay *pats*). We hope you enjoy the full FREE version once we release it. Thanks for the wonderful words :)
P.S Your English is great, no need to apologize :)
