MORE.I love this game.I loved the manga characters name lolol
i'm really impressed with this demo so far! the art is gorgeous--i'd say professional level--and the story and mood is pretty cute and lighthearted. can't wait for the full version!
I. Need. More. *-*
Omg how long has it been since I've been so excited waiting for a game's full release! This demo was fantastic, and I can't wait to play the full game. I have high hopes for this game! <3 Keep up the great work! :)
Do you guys mind if I sketch your characters just to pass some time ?? I'll be sure to give credit , Plus when is the full demo coming out , im dying to play it already .
:O Of course not! The exact opposite, that sounds really amazing :D Please feel free to email it to us or tweet it so we can see it <3 <3 We're hoping to release the full game next year :)
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!
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 :)
Gah! I've been looking for a romantic comedy visual novel for so long, and this one is just perfect! The characters, the art style (which looks absolutely godly), and just the plot itself. It's quite unique and very interesting. Also, I don't think I have ever loved the heroine so much before. Natsu is an amazing character, and usually I find the heroine to be annoying but I love her! I was in love with every character in here, even the hooded man! (I know, I'm weird) and it was hard to pick one but I had to go with lovely Grouchy-sama <3 Everything about this is just dfbs\fb\kejfh.uqef astounding!! xD
I'm so excited for the full version! *^* Is there a release date for the full version yet?? I'd love to follow up with the development of this game because the demo was AMAZING. I mean, it is automatically one of my favorite VN, even though it's just a demo... that's how well made this was. Keep up the great work! I'm looking forward to seeing more Konbini Life!! *squeals*
Haha thanks so much for taking the time to write to us! :3 We greatly appreciate the kind words <3 There's no release date yet but we are actively working on it and we want to see it through :) Currently we have a twitter - https://twitter.com/2birdsgames and a forum thread - https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=... though we are trying not to reveal too much about what we are working on :D We may be enticed to share some of the art...
Thank you again! Your post made our day :D :D: D
omg i so love the art! and the eyes, the eyes man /cries/ . I LOVE IT OMG FIGHTING~~ im so excited c:
Haha that's wonderful XD Grouchy's eyes are the gorgeous-est imo >bias< so glad you love the art <3
Ugggggh the graphics are so niiice. And I like the story too. Can't wait for the full version ;_;
Gosh, I just finished the demo and I'm so excited to play the real game! I love how diverse the characters are and I think their nicknames are so cute! At first, I thought Glasses would be a weird perv-y character [yikes sorry] but he's actually the funniest character in my opinion, with his love of Magic Girl Mimimimi!! Also, I love how mysterious the Prince was. The fact that he buys so much food from the store everyday reminded me of* [i typed me or myself before lmfao what] myself, because I often go shopping and then forget stuff and end up going to the store daily haha. But, I really want to play his story and get to know who he is and why he's so rich????? BUT, my favorite character has got to be the grouch himself. After reading why he's trying so hard to become the owner of Super Konbini Mart it made me want to be right by his side to help him out.
Also, I love the art and the drawings! I hate to say it but one of the major things I look at is art style in games, and this one is definitely the real deal.
Goodness I can't wait till the full version is out! [hopefully its free bc im just a smol teenager with no money haha ):] Keep up the hard work!!
*wicked laugh* Glasses has more to come >:D and we're glad you find Prince so mysterious too, that's awesome. Everyone has their own reasons for being who they are but we only got to reveal Grouchy's in the demo so it's great that you liked his reason for being so... Grouchy ;)
Bird2 is an amazing artist, she really brings a personality to her designs :D I'm so envious. She's currently working on new poses as well so that will help sell them even more :)
And you're in luck! The game WILL be free *throws confetti*
Thanks for your kind words!
I loved the art style, the characters, the story, just everything. The way the story was written felt so real along with the characters personalities and reactions to certain situations. I can not wait to see this as a full game. The only suggestion i would make is adding in some convenience store music and sound effects but other than that this game is amazing. Keep up the good work!
We have music! We just never got to implement it because we ran out of time XD Thank you for the encouragement it means a lot to us :) <3
Sooo cute and really well-designed! Unique storyline too :) Can't wait to play the finished product! <3
omg I love this! The demo was amazing, I cant wait to play the full game. xD
I loved the demo and can't wait for the full game to be out.
The dialogue was engaging as was the character interaction.
The artwork was fantastic.
I will definitely be happy paying a cost towards this game!
Aww we appreciate the offer but Konbini Life will be a free title :D yay! Thank you for the offer though, it's a really nice thought :) We are glad you enjoyed the demo!
Can't wait for the full game! I loved the different characters and Natsu's dialogue was quite funny. Considering she;s working the night shift, things are pretty eventful and exciting and the art is really nice as well. Keep it up! :) Can't wait!
Thank you! The trick was thinking up characters that would hang around in those hours haha. Thanks for the encouragement!
Ahhh! This demo is awesome! I'm already in love with this game and I can't wait till the full release!!!! Every part of this was wonderful and the art is amazing, not to mention the fact that I can relate to Natsu on a personality level. Reading her dialogue and the choices given is a blast because they are all things I would say, right down to the "I will draw the best damn poster this store has ever seen!" I'm a permanent fan and I'm super excited to see what you come up with in the future. Keep up the good work.
So happy you're feeling Natsu! We wanted to make sure she felt like a real person with real responses :D Thanks for such kind words <3
No problem! I always enjoy VN's with amazing story lines, great CG, and wonderful characters. This VN definitely has all of those factors and I can't wait till the completed version is out.
I absolutely love the demo so far! I can't wait for the whole thing to come out! The characters are so loveable and the art style is beautiful! I can't wait for the full game!
I just played the demo and I LOVE it! All the characters have really interesting personalities and fun interactions, I love them all. The setting is really fun (and makes me miss japan kombinis). And the art is super cute too. I really can't wait for the full release! Good job guys and good luck!
Thank you so much :D Super glad to hear it! Which character did you enjoy the most?
its amazing so far! I love the diverse cast you have. The main character is extremely likable. Will you sell the game on steam, or will it also be available for android?
Yay, thank you! We're happy Natsu feels relatable, that's great to hear :) Unsure about putting it up on Steam right now, we need to do a little investigation of what that entails, but the finished product will be free. No plans for android at the moment either (hadn't thought about it haha). Thanks again for playing~
its so awesome that your doing it for free! I'd also be willing to pay for it too (or donate because I remember being poor when I was a teenager). It's actually already better than some of games I've bought :D I was curious on how many hours each route was.
Thanks so much for the thought! We're pretty dedicated to keeping it free because we remember what it's like being poor teenagers too, so it's the least we can do :D
Route-wise they come in just under an hour (which includes the time before the branch starts, it's a short game) but with the polish we want to add that should extend the playtime a bit :)
when will the full version be out? konbini life is really funny, i look foward to future updates!!!
Thank you! We are currently sorting out where we can improve the narrative and potentially exploring adding more poses/UI/CGs/Sound/Everything else haha. Is there anything you would like to see most of all? We won't set a deadline yet as we are working out what we want to achieve :) But we are still working on it!
