A downloadable short visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

I'm a terrible songwriter, but Karen is a wonderful friend.
I told her I had a week off work and that I would probably be spending it at home, sulking.
And she just said, "Come on over"
Like that."
She had only one warning to make: "In Winter, this place hibernates"
I told her her town was a butterfly, waiting for Summer to flutter her glittery wings.
She told me my poetry sucked.

Rhyme or Reason is a romantic comedy with six endings.
It started life as a NaNoReNo entry, but it took a while to finish, and even longer to be up on itch.io.

Art, Writing and Programming done by yours truly, Ludeshka.

There is this peculiar storytelling that complement the art style you use, which I like so much. After following your other work (I stumble upon Hierofania and Hierofania 2 at Google Playstore under a publisher named Visual Wordplay),  I am impressed that it works well with romcom genre ^^

And I can't help to assume that the 4th and 5th ending are connected to Soda Stereo? 'Cause the songs realy fits the resolution of the pairs :D

Soda Stereo indeed, my favourite argentinian band! (¿Hablas castellano? :)  Cuando yo era adolescente, Soda Stereo era"careta", snob, hace poco que vuelve a tener "legitimidad")

Thank you for the compliments. I really didn't know if I could manage a romantic comedy, but I thought it was my best shot at actually writing a short story. I tend to get lost in sidequests and secondary characters otherwise. My true love will always be the rpg format :D

Oh, I see, but lo siento that I don't speak Spanish very well (I even need google translate for this :'D )

Anyway, hope for your further work, then ^^

Hello! I wonder - how to contact you by email or maybe on FaceBook? :)
