🍓VERSION O.92 AND THE DEMO ARE NOW AVALIABLE!🍓


Hello there! My name is Berry, thank you so much for checking out the demo for 'I'm Oh, So Busy...: A Week with Yoshimi'! It means a lot to my team and I that you decided to check out this game amist our ongoing production. This version features the full story of the game along with the temporary GUI and all of the music that has been completed as of now (soundtrack is subject to change), as well as the most up to date version of the DLC. The full game will include a more vibrant GUI, as well as more variety in the music catalog,  story,  and DLC as production moves along! Please see the links below for more information!



THE FULL JIST:

'I'm Oh, So Busy...: A Week with Yoshimi' is a dark comedy/drama/slice-of-life visual novel that explores that life and times of 23 1/2-year-old Yoshimi Hertz and she makes her way in the world after finishing school. It combines a western style of writing with an anime-esque visual style. The game focuses on various themes such as mental health, purpose, meaning, desire, and the sturggle between modernity in the face of traditionalist upbringing. 

The writing process for this game started back in mid-2017 with visual novel production starting way back in March of 2018 and has been ongoing ever since. Originally written as a spec script for a television miniseries, I decided to go the visual novel route after remembering a trip I took to Japan back in 2014 where I saw just how big the visual novel market was there. I felt that this was a style of storytelling that had a lot of promise in the Western world. The entire studio for this game is virutal. 




WE'RE OH, SO BUSY...

As of now, this game is in the late-development stages as GUI and music is still being worked on. This should explain some minimal instances of no music in the game and the basic GUI. There is a small fee to play the game in it's current state, but all proceeds/donations made from Itch will go towards finishing the final stretches of the game, any amount helps. Updates on the progress will be made when avaliable.




DEMOS AND DONATIONS.  

If you like, you can play the demo version of the visual novel before you decide to buy.

There doesn't seem to be a file to download.

Hello! My apologies for the wait...The game files are pretty large, so I'm having to upload one at a time. I'll post another update when it's ready.
