A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Depressed day-in and day-out from a draining corporate job, you become invested in a fantasy webnovel and find a mysterious link to a fan server. Everyone is warm and welcoming, but four members take a special interest in you!
WELCOME TO BLOOMING PANIC: FULL BLOOM EDITION!
We are so excited to finally share the re-vamped version of our game jam entry, Blooming Panic. Here's some of what you can find in this new version of the game:
1. Pronoun options,
2. Updated art for every character,
3. ~6k additional words of content for nightowl,
4. ~4k additional words of content for NakedToaster,
5. Five new tracks in the OST
6. The xyx route.
A devlog will be posted shortly after launch with more detail on the changes, as well as complete new walkthroughs for every single route.

My favorite visual novel style game! It is even inspiring me to write my own visual novel game! This is a huge inspiration and I love all the characters but personally nightowl and xyx had my heart racing.
such a fantastic game!! i really loved how immersive it was in making you feel like you joined a new discord server for an obscure fandom! the server aspect was super cool to play through! loved the calls too, the voice acting was superb <333 the npcs were cool (Salocin best dad), and i love love LOVE all the LIs, especially nightowl best boy who had me mad blushing the entire ride <33 Quest is really sweet and xyx is hilarious <3 i loved Toaster's route too, the parallels and mystery behind the server and all was amazing! i miss the game already aaa <3
Y'all, I love all the characters, but Quest's teasing had mE FEELING THINGS OMG and I loved making NakedToaster all flustered and blushy
It was a great game. Amazing, even.

Quest's route was so much fun!!! ssadfhafdasfdhgsafdhafdags. HE. He's my nr 1 <3
My 2nd fav was Xyx's route, just a silly little funny guy, BUT HOLY SHIT THE BAD END BRO :(
his bad end scared me so much, i thought he- and Cat would-and the server- I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO TERRIFIED IN MY LIFE T~T
One of the best visual novels I've ever played. Thank you sincerely for everyone's hard work on this project, from the art, to the coding, to the voice acting and music. It brought a little more joy and love (albeit imaginary) into my life. I still replay this vn many times and I think I'll never get sick of it
I finished it, but I want mooooore! Nightowl was the best! So adorable! :) <3
my heart.................................. its empty now ;( i love love love love nightowl and this game SOOOOOOOOOO MUCHHHHHHHH!!!! hoping to find someone like nightowl for me soon in the future HAHA 10/10 BTWW <333
This game is amazing!! So well done, I instantly fell for all of the love interests! I thoroughly enjoyed it! <3
LO AMOO! i´ve just finished it!! 10/10 <3
Played through Quest and Nightowl's routes so far, and the game has been wonderful! So far, Quest has been my favorite character. This is possibly one of the best dating simulator's I've ever played so far!
(I was also very surprised to get a kazoo version of the theme? I just had the game open in the background and then suddenly kazoos started playing in my headphones LMAO)
dude this game was....AMAZING
HOW IS THIS FREE??????? THE QUALITY IS OUTSTANDIN
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME
YOU ALL DID AN AMAZING JOB

I NEED MORE !!!
Oh I usually don't like the kind of novels that is designed as a chat but this was sooo cute. Love it!! I love characters and the voice acting.
ok, I did all the routes, all that the game had to offer for me and GODDAMMINT it was good. I screemd, punched my desk a few times, had my heart broken and fixed in the same time...
Now Idk what to do honestly I feel like an orfan after the game :((
ohoho, this was just as well made as i thought it would be! by far my favorite is nightowl, but i liked the side characters just as much. it wasn't too long nor too short, the right amount. i like how it goes beyond romance, giving you a look into the characters' lives and their relationships with other server members. overall, I really enjoyed this game!!
I JUST FINISHED ALL THE GAME WITH ALL THE FINALS AND FANARTS IN 10 HOURS WITH NO SLEEP I LOVE THIS GAME WOOOO :7
this game was AWESOME! I loved the depth all the characters had, the stories were great, and my goodness this was something else. I have never played something so visually and auditorilly pleasing. 10/10; i've already recommended this to others :D
XYX AND TOASTER MY FAVS <3
10 OUT OF 10 THIS GAME IS SICK
God fucking damnit im down bad again. I love all of them so much but, xyx my beloved.

OMG, I love this game is the best!!!! omg I love all the characters, they are so enjoyable <3 even I liked onion quite a bit. Actually, not all aka societyboy. honestly love all the routes I encountered so far even the sad ones. NakedToaster is my favorite, xyx close by. I love them all and NakedToaster route was WOW. anyways great game 100/10 I want all the routes now lol. also, XYX bad route is </3
I absolutely LOVED this game! Every rout was amazing, and I truly did NOT except that outcome with NakedToast, but I truly think he was my favorite. XYX right behind of course.
I Love this sooo much! ^^
I wish I could find more games like this! I super support the idea of a new game in this style, the voices, the story, the photos and the endings! One of the best games I've played on itch.io! <3
How about try error 143 lol ! it's similar but only one routs and some puzzle type like hangman lol it's pretty good it's on itch.io too now!
OMG I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! I've replayed nightowl and xyx's route way to many times now, the voices are amazingly done and I love the choices and how they affect the way the ending is, I also love playing different ways to see which route I get. it genuinely is a great game and I love it 10/10
Fuck you?????? Fuck you for making this fucking game that made me face all my issues in one go while also viewing attractive men???? Fuck you for the beautiful writing and the fucking emotional roller coaster I went on for an entire fucking night???? Im coming to your place of work to tp it out of hatred and adoration??????????? LIKE??? HELLO??????? HOW DID YOU JUST THROW A GAME TOGETHER THIS GOOD???? IM KIND OF IN FUCKING AWE AND PROCESSING THE ENDING ROUTE END. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE???? IT WAS SO BRILLIANT. FUCK!!! SHIT!!!! I'M GONNA SUBMIT THIS COMMENT NOW BEFORE I REFUSE TO SHUT UP!
