What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As the only developer of this game, I have spent sixteen years establishing the characters' personalities, and two years designing the visual pictures for them. This game is designed to have individual story line for each character. Currently there are eight characters' stories in total and I decide to publish this version as early access version. I plan to add eight more characters' stories in the complete version in the next coming year. I'd like to collect feedback from players and communities, such as what kind of interactions my players want to see between the Heroin and the men the Heroin can establish romantic relationships with, what new drawings of the men my players want to see in the game such as new clothings, new expressions, etcs. With players' feedback I can improve my game and make it more perfect.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Because the developer has a full-time job which isn't related to this game, she could only work on this game on weekends. The estimation time for her to finish the remaining 8 characters' stories is one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The complete version will have 16 characters' stories in total, which will have 8 more stories than the current version.
However, because each character's story is individual, therefore players won't have trouble such as having to wait for the ending of a specific character's story. Currently all 8 stories are completed.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version, the player will play as the Heroine and experience eight individual stories. In each story, the player will establish either friendship or romantic relationships with a man. All eight stories are independent from each other, so the player will be dating with only one person in one story.
Key Features
1. Select one of eight guys as your love interest. Each story has multiple branching paths. The choices you make in the game will lead you to different endings. There are 20+ endings in total for the eight stories.
2. Keep track of your romance parameters with each man because it can also affect your ending.
3. You can customize the names for the Heroine as well as all the eight men.

We already have many mobile players who have experienced this game with 8 characters' stories. On Taptap mobile game platform, the game has about 40,000 followers, with a user score of 9.8 (10 is a full score). Therefore we believe this game in this current state is ready for players on Steam.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The complete version will also be free for all players, the same as the early access version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As a writer with 16 years writing experiences, readers' reviews are always a precious source of fun for me. To create a visual novel, in some aspects, is the same as writing, which is creating stories and bringing characters to live. I'm eager to see players' feedbacks on this game, and hoping more players who are interested in this game can join our community. We have a small but pleasant social media group but it's mostly Chinese players. I hope more players can join us. if you're an English speaker and you want to join our community, please email me at 1263040030@qq.com. (I can speak English btw. Feedbacks welcomed.)”

About This Game

About when there will be English version..as the only person who is working on this game.. Sorry, though my English skill is okay (TOEFL score 108), I don't have much free time to translate the scripts. OTZ
Currently the scripts of 13 characters' lines are publicly accessible, at
http: // 3137203 . jjwxc . net
and
https去掉:/去掉/pan.去掉baidu去掉.com/C82_y7iheae4g5c_MZE11g code 34dz

maybe with Google translate you can figure the plot out.. It probably won't be easy..

Also the sprites (expressions) drawings can be found at
https去掉://去掉www.去掉taptap.去掉com/去掉topic/14948803 (150 pictures in total.)

(please delete the Chinese characters 去掉(meaning "remove") before directing to the link)

The Game of The Playful is a visual novel created by one person (characters are drew by outsourced artists). The engine this game used is Visual Novel Maker.
In this visual novel, you'll play as the Heroine and experience eight individual stories. In each story, you will establish either friendship or romantic relationships with a man. All eight stories are independent from each other, so you'll be dating with only one person in one story.

Key Features
1. Select one of eight guys as your love interest. Each story has multiple branching paths. The choices you make in the game will lead you to different endings. There are 20+ endings in total for the eight stories.
2. Keep track of your romance parameters with each man because it can also affect your ending.
3. You can customize the names for the Heroine as well as all the eight men.
