New Yuri VN - Heart of the Woods

Hey everyone,

Josh here. I just wanted to let you know that I just released a new yuri VN called "Heart of the Woods" with my team Studio Élan. It's got ghosts, it's got girls, it's got gmagic. It's also got a 10% launch discount for a week!

Anyway, if you liked Highway Blossoms, then hopefully you'll like HotW too. I directed and co-wrote it, and all of the character art was done by Rosuuri (who did the cover art and a couple CG's for HB). It's got a different tone and style than HB does, but I think you'll still enjoy it.

Also, stay tuned for more news on National Park Girls, a VN series that Syon and I are working on together. The character art for that one is being done by Satchel, the artist behind Doki Doki Literature Club. More on that coming really soon!

Thanks for checking out HotW (assuming that you do, and don't just close this tab without clicking this really fun link right here which will take you to the game).

Adult Only DLC Released


The adult patch is all grown up now, and is a full-fledged Steam DLC. Still free. You can grab it at

This is the exact same as the 18+ patch that we host on our website, so if you've gotten it from there, you don't need to change anything. There's no content in the Steam DLC version that isn't available in the old patch. You can continue to use that version if you'd like, or you can switch to using the official release.

If you weren't aware of the adult patch, well, as its store page says, it adds two uncensored sex scenes towards the end of the game. The illustrations are by Weee/Raemz.

Want to know if you've already passed where the scenes would've occurred? Both take place After the Las Vegas section of the game. One is right after visiting the World's Tallest Thermometer, one is after Amber and Marina make up from their argument, right before they go to the music festival.

It probably goes without saying, but you need to be 18 years or older to download and play the adult patch.

Have fun!

“The characters are all likable (the ones meant to be anyway), the presentation is top notch, the gold rush and road trip aspects are very enjoyable and Amber X Marina’s love story is heartwarming. Highly recommended to yuri fans who want to experience something special.”

4/5 – Hardcore Gamer

“Going in to Highway Blossoms, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Despite this, it wasn’t long before I entrusted my time to the characters, enjoying both the physical and emotional ride that they were taking.”

Highway Blossoms Remastered

The update some of you asked for

Highway Blossoms: Remastered is the new definitive romance treasure hunt road trip experience. Most importantly, it's now fully voiced in English by a talented cast of actors. We've also remastered the soundtrack for a better listening experience, touched up the art for a better viewing experience, and added a Chinese translation for a better Chinese reading experience. The bug fixes are numerous, the improvements are vast, and the full changelog can be found in the announcements section.

About This Game

Highway Blossoms is a short yuri kinetic novel set in the American Southwest. After an old gold rush miner's journal is discovered, supposedly detailing where he hid parts of his stash, a nationwide craze begins as would-be prospectors try to solve its clues and strike it rich.

Amber couldn't care less. Wandering the desert in a recently-inherited motorhome, she mourns the loss of her grandfather - indifferent and unaware of the hunt happening around her. It's not until she meets Marina, a young hitchhiker lost in New Mexico that the girls get swept up in the rush.

  • At least tens of words, maybe even hundreds. Although the last word count puts it around 90,000, so expect 6 or so hours of reading.
  • Grand, hand-painted vistas of actual landmarks in the western United States, all in glorious 1080p detail.
  • A huge soundtrack featuring the works of Smoke Thief, Jake Abernathie, Able Kirby, and other friends of AlienWorks. Sounds right at home on your in-dash cassette tape player.
  • Accessibility options for days, including the ability to skip through everything in less than five minutes. But who would wanna do that?
  • Achievements, although to be honest, they might be stretching the definition of "achievement."
  • Alternate silly content for second readthroughs that AlienWorks let the programmer write. This may or may not have been a good idea.
