so good yet so adorable!!
From the Sun to the Moon
Soleil (pronounced “soh-lay”) and her girlfriend Esmeray (pronounced “ehz-mer-ay”) have been together for almost three years! Leading up to their third year anniversary, Soleil decides the best way to celebrate would be to take Esmeray out on a date each day leading up to their anniversary! Will the dates be successful, or end in total failure? Play now to find out!
The game includes…
☆Three cute dates between two cute lgbt characters!
☆Two fabulous endings!
☆Three secrets to uncover!
☆Countless cgs in a pixel-art style!
☆Retro themed music you’re certain to love!
☆About 30 minutes-1 hour of gameplay!
Soleil ☆ Pronouns: they/them
(EDIT- when the game was released I used they/she pronouns for this character, but as of now I'd prefer people to only refer to them with they/them pronouns, thank you!)
Full of sunshine, Soleil is a hopeless romantic with big dreams and an even bigger heart! They strive to do their best and be a good, likable person.
Esmeray ☆ Pronouns: she/they/he
Esmeray's a shining moon in the dark night sky; they always know how to brighten a room with their charm and humor! She's determined to make it big and have everyone know her name.

I played this + the related one, I really quite liked them! The characters are cute, and charming. The art is very good - each element of the two styles contrast in a perfect way to emphasize their differences. It is VERY impactful. I am hopeful for more!!
i like this game
- pixel style
- smilestrawbunny made this
- amazing designs
- different endings
play this game it is very awesome
I loved it! I got both the bad end, and the good end in a total of a few minutes!
this game is incredible, I loved how it went from cute dating game to horror just like that. It kinda reminds me of ddlc a bit. THE ART FOR THIS GAME IS TO DIE FOR I HAVE NEVER SEEN BETTER ART LIKE THAT.
this game is amazing. I love the game very much but sometimes the game would freeze, and I would have to wait a long time to play please can you fix that. its still good though.
I liked how the game was kinda sweet at first and then took a dark turn.
WELP THAT WENT DOWNHILL QUICKLY LOL-
I don't see anything to click on besides the knife.
it's so funny getting the knife ending and then the cut to credits
I really enjoyed playing this, all your games have elements of horror and are all so cute! I hope you keep that style for your games!
i loved this game!, has cute and scary graphics, i love this game so much! >w<!
Ok but in all honestly I would LOVE more stuff in this style! It's so striking and the characters have so much personality, it's great!
Damn this game is so cool i wish gay people were real
Esmeray watches the life drain out of their love's eyes, crimson blood flows out of a fatal gash, still warm. She sobs over his darling's body as that thing claims them both.
Buh buh baba bababa buh buh buh buhbuhbuh ep bibibibib bibi bibi

I absolutely loved this gamee, I just HAVE to leave a comment on this! ^^
It's such a cute game and just like Berrywitched I really enjoyed this. Your 'style' is very unique and I love how you combine a cute art style with really dark themes in your story.
I saw a comment on a YT vid in which it was mentioned that you got lots of negative comments and are down about this, but I scrolled down and didn't see a single one that didn't praise the game in some way. The only thing I noticed was people saying they prefer Berrywitched. I hope you'll keep your chin up and don't see that as negativity or let that get to you. Even if some people prefer Berrywitched, that doesn't mean that this is a bad game or that they didn't like it! Just continue making games that are fun for you, and as long as your girlfriend and you enjoyed this game it has been worth it, right?
What I liked about the game: The artstyle and the character designs! Berrywitched only had one character sprite so this is a huge step-up for you. I also liked the interactive areas! That added so much gameplay variation to the game despite being mostly narrative.
To sum it up: This was so cool! ^^ I had so much fun with this!
Here are some things that I noticed about this game that I assume could have made some people confused. I will list them because I think that's more helpful to you instead of just saying what was good about it:
- The dates felt as if the player has to be careful about their decisions, but nothing was really missable and it always ended in the same results. Once I figured that out I started just clicking on everything on the second date until I had all three stars since I knew I would just succeed no matter what I do. It would have been cool if there had been a 'Bad Ending' for failing the dates to make the choices feel more important!
- The second point and click area of date 3. It was cool that the game suddenly turned mysterious but some things weren't obvious or didn't seem realistic. I know the game is not supposed to be very realistic but it still felt off-putting that the code was hidden in a videotape. I also would have never found the mirror if it hadn't been for the hint after the first ending. I just clicked around in the box until I found it because there were no indicators. Q_Q
- The stairs on date 3 part 1! XD That is just a personal nitpick, but the stairs were very hard to see and the area to click them was so small that it always activated the area next to it, so I thought I had already clicked on the stairs and was confused why the 3rd star is nowhere to be found T-T
Okay, I think that was all that really stood out to me as confusing. I hope the list combined with the advises other people have given you somehow helps you with your game design in the future. Your work is really impressive and I can't wait to see what you will make next! The Harvest is looking AMAZING so far!
Gave the game a 5 star rating ^^
Please always keep making games!!
The characters are so cute! Esmeray reminds me of myself UvU
i love this game so much like words can not discribe how much i loved this game this is the most beautiful, eloquent, best game i have ever played :]
the art and characters are great! i really liked the story but i dont understand the villain too well. also before the ooo creepy part their dynamic was really cute. sun girls past was also very really interesting.
AHHH GIRLFRIENDS!!!!! THEYRE SO CUTE ^__^ I REALLY DID NOT EXPECT THAT.. the art, the story, the horror, its all so wonderfully made!! i really enjoyed this
This game is cute and fun. Until you click the wrong thing. Then, it immediately transitions to being nightmare fuel.
the girls remind me a lot of the sprites of Ibuki Mioda and Mikan Tsumiki from Danganronpa
I'm confused as heck
Esmeray has i good she don't need to pay and wants to. 😫
both are sussy
It reminds me when
i saw a couple making out in the parking lot in front of the store
DON"T KISS IN PUBLIC AREA
Esmeray is sadly a SIMP
press spacebar when there talking
doing report on game it popped up
CUTE AND CREEPY GAME, i love!!!! ManlyBadassHero brought me here, i hope everyone gets to enjoy this experience!
I was absolutely in love with everything in this game! the characters, the art, the story, the horror, it is definitely one of my new favorite games I've played. I went into the game not realizing you also made Berrywitched, but once I realized I loved it even more! This game made me very happy, and I had so much fun editing and playing it. I wish it had been longer! Keep up the great work!
THIS IS SO GOOD!! >:
