What a emotional experience.

I was born and raised in Japan, and I feel nostalgic about this game (pastral landscape, singing of insects, バス停). Arigatou!

Oh, thank you so much! We glad you liked our little game.
We feel very nostalgic of Japanese landscapes too. It's such a beautiful country...
Thanks a lot for the video!

...wow, such a dedication to deliver this marvelous art in two days *millions thumbs up and loud cheerful claps*

Although short, it has been a sublime experience through the girl's perspective and...

*crash*

...yeah, you just heard pieces of my heart shattering at that turn of event in the end of the narrative :')

Oh, thank you so much for your very kind message!
This game was done during a workshop with students so we had no idea of how it would look like in the end.
We're glad you found it as moving as we wanted it to be.
This is a huge compliment and it will motivate us to create more games like this one!

Wonderful and very sad :(

Thanks a lot for playing!

What a wonderful, yet sad, game. Your artwork was beautiful and seeing each frame put together in a working game this way was stunning. Well done to all involved and well done on the games since this one that i've played and not realised were yours!

Thank you! It was a great experience for us to work with Game Art students.
They did a good job with the graphics. It's great to collaborate with so many people since we usually work alone.

Well you were all superb. Make moar! :D  I bet you guys could pull off a really atmospheric horror too, your art and style is perfect.

Since Yûrei Station, this is something we're thinking about.
We love horror and we'll probably do a horror game, one of these days.

I loved the yurei station game so I thought I would try this one out to! And again I really Love the art style and everything about this game even the story! Great job! 

Thanks for playing! We're glad you liked the art style and the story !

This is one beautiful well made love story!


Honestly as I played the yurei station I had to play this one :)! Can't wait for more of your games!

Thanks a lot for playing! We'll probably release another of these games in the coming months!

I absolutely love these your guys games! I played Yurei Station a while ago and had no idea you did two before that.  Again amazing art style and very Miyazaki feeling! Keep them coming!

Gameplay

Thanks a lot! We're glad you liked it!
We'll try to create more games with that kind of style and story.

This game is another amazing project from these students! Beautiful and well done! 

Thanks a lot for playing our little game!

I absolutely had to play this after playing through Yurei Station! Another great story with beautifully drawn backgrounds!!! 

Keep up the amazing work Atelier Sento!!

It was one of our first games so the text runs too fast. We should take time to fix that! Sorry!
But even with this problem, you did a great work with the voice acting as usual!
Thanks a lot for the video: we enjoyed it a lot!

Wow I didn't know this was on itchio, otherwise I would have posted my Let's Play here as well as on indiegamestand xD
I really loved the art and the story was pretty interesting as well. I didn't really expect what what would happen. It was also one of the first games that got me to do my Interesting Games playlist :D

Thanks for playing! We're glad you liked this game and its story.
It was our first experiment in making short games.
We should make more of them!

Once I first saw this game is fell absolutely in love with it. As an artist I find the work you have done is so creative and unique and i loved the style. The storyline was so amazing and i cried happiness it was so amazing and i really hope you all continue to create your amazing work

Thanks a lot for your kind words!
Reading such a comment is so motivating. It will inspire us to create more games like this one!

Great game! I really like the handpainted art. music is also nice.

Thank you for the kind words!

Nice story and art. I love the way you tell the player that he can interact with something using lamp. Good job!
Btw, subtitles dissapear a little to fast.

Thank you. The subtitles are too fast indeed. We should fix that in the future...

Really good. Nice story and atmosphere.

Thanks for the nice words! We didn't have much time to imagine this game so we tried to create a strong atmosphere.

looks like a really fun game

I'm going to play it later because it's really late right now

Thank you! We hope you could find time to play it and we hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you! The music was created with the free software LMMS which contains many beautiful instruments.

Great game! I've packaged this for Arch Linux: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/after-school/

It's the very first time we export to Linux and we feel a little lost. So thank you for your help!

No problem, thank you for a great little game!

Nice, I haven't seen anyone creating packages for itch.io games yet. It would be great to have a better way to handle downloads. I've created an issue here: https://github.com/leafo/itch.io/issues/268
