This was a good read - especially for a jam. Good work!

Is this PG-13? o3o Nevina (Fallingmist on DA) and myself are going to be hosting a PG-13 yuri-jam panel at Yurithon in Montreal this August (yep, we got permish) and we were wondering if it would be ok to demo your awesome game, if so. We've also contacted a few others so that the crowd can have a choice, or possibly if we have the time, we could demo all of those who say yes 8D
Thank you for your time!

Yes, the game is PG-13. And yes, you absolutely may demo the game. Thanks so much for asking! :)
It's such a good game and it has so much potential it has me looking forward to Galaxy Angels (or Galaxy Girls as it's up on Steam). Perhaps it's because of how short the game is that the romance appears to be a bit forced (or maybe I just find the day counter rather disconcerting). Nevertheless, I enjoyed the couple of hours I spent playing.
It's easy to see why Kotoha would be the easiest ending to get, so of course I gravitated towards romancing Sara. It's always more fun when there's more difficulty and angst involve (all characters included, considering Kotoha's position). I was thinking of how Sara and Erica would build a relationship during their voyage and at the end of it, somehow, someway, the fiance finds a way to get to their destination and Sara steps off the ship and sees him, and what then?
I suppose that's already too wild of a leap considering the science of the games universe. Which brings me to my last point. I think, for me, the most interesting part of this whole game (yes, even more interesting than the very lovely, queer women) was the lore. I hope we get to see more of the science and history of the Blossoms universe.
Over-all, thank you for this game; I can't wait for the new one to be released!
I'm so glad to hear that you liked the game! And yes, Galaxy Angels had to have its name changed; although I was not informed on the exact reason, I believe it had to do with the fact that the title was one letter off from another series called Galaxy Angel.
It's nice to hear that you are interested in the lore. It was actually written out long before Blossoms Bloom Brightest's story was outlined. Where this was a Yuri Game Jam VN that was written in about 30 days (but had to be delayed due to the art assets), the lore was actually written for another title, with this title meant to merely be an introduction to the universe.
Now, I'm not sure if that title will ever see the light of day at this point, as the game's lore also seems to be the thing that bothers people most (in terms of those who disliked it). Even if we included a .pdf with explanations as to what all of the concepts were based on, I'd be afraid that wouldn't help. But, I am glad that someone enjoyed it, haha. I suppose I'll have to wait and see how Galaxy Girls does.
Thanks so much for playing!
Thank you so much for this game! It's awesome, we need more yuri games out there haha. Will definitely be supporting your future works!
Awesome game. I wish it would be much longer with some more actions. Because it feels like if the story ends when it statrs to be more interesting. Please make a sequel of it!
We're so glad you enjoyed the game!
While there isn't a sequel in the works, there is a remake with 3x the content that'll be released in a few months (http://store.steampowered.com/...). After that, there will also be some extra DLC episodes released for the remake, with one taking place before the game begins and two that take place after one of the endings. Depending on how well that specific release does, there may be more Blossoms games.
Blossoms Bloom Brightest is now also available for free on Steam!
Hi! Im kind of new to all of this and have never played or downloaded a visual novel before and i cant seem to find any videos or explanations on how to open the game (that might just be because im bad at searching). Can anyone please help me?
If you're on Windows, you need to extract the .zip you downloaded with 7zip (or any other applicable program) and then run the file called BBBv1.exe in the BBBV1 (the exact name differs depending on which version you downloaded) folder.
I can't get 4 endings . I can only get 2 . The one where Erica kisses Kotoha (my favourite) and the where Erica kisses Sara . Does somone have a guide or something ???
Hi! Thanks for playing our first release!
Because there's already a paid guide above and we don't want to undermine anyone's purchase, we'll stick to only sharing a few tips to getting all of the endings.
Kotoha's good ending (you've gotten this):
- This is the easiest ending to get overall. Just be nice to her.
- You're almost guaranteed to get this ending on your first try.
Kotoha's bad ending:
- There is only one specific choice set that leads to it, so it's technically the most difficult ending to get. May take trial and error.
- You only need 3 affection points with her in the common route to get onto her route. Do not get any more than the minimum points needed. Focus on Sara after that.
- Don't raise her affection at all during her route. Be mean/rude/harsh/inconsiderate.
Sara's good ending (you've gotten this):
- This is the second most difficult to get ending.
- More than anything, be honest with Sara. But, you should also be nice and avoid making fun of her.
Sara's bad ending:
- Bad choices will lower her affection for you. Take advantage of this.
- Be nice to Kotoha and depend on her. Be rude and patronising to Sara.
