    I really really like this! First I got a bad ending when I tried to ask out James (because there seemed to be no other choice) but friendzoned him too many times before, so he said no, then I tried to be nicer to him and ended up with Arvin instead (?). Didn’t really understand this. But still, one of the best free visual novels i know ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ran S. says:

      Awww, thank you very much Lee! ^^ That’s such an awesome thing to hear, or read. Hahaha. I’m really glad you liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Although I’m sorry if it’s a bit confusing. Hahaha, I promise I’ll do better next time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, thank you!

    • Ran S. says:

      Oh, please just click the download links at the bottom of the post. ^^
      You can choose which version you’d download depending on your OS. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is really realistic! The interactions are great and the characters were so sweet and nice ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Ran S. says:

      Aww, thank you PurelikeSnow! I tried to make the game as close as possible to real life, and I’m glad that you think that way! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Jerha says:

    First of all, this is very good specially for your first game. I enjoyed many of the scenes. I also got all of the endings.
    I have a few doubts about some scenes because I saw that you have trouble with the routes, am I right? Some scenes felt too random to me, although rest assured, they were still very enjoying. The writing was polished and well-thought. I only noticed very few typos, which is great for a beginner.
    Kyla’s character wasn’t explored much and in my opinion I think there should have been a path where they became friends, though I understand that you left an open ending in Mark’s path. Also, Luz is one of the most interesting characters here, and I’m happy she had a personality of her own and liked James instead of merely fitting the best friend role.
    Overall I really really like this game. I hope you make more and I wish you luck on your other projects. I look forward to seeing more from you.

    • Ran S. says:

      Hello Jerha!
      Yeah, it’s my first game, (not my first project though; that one is Seasons of Love) and I’m glad you liked it!
      Hahaha, yup, I did. Doing that was a bit of a headache at times. But I definitely enjoyed. And I’m sorry if some felt too random! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I’m very glad you still found them enjoying though.
      Ahh, I wanted them to become friends too. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But due to the time constraint I had to shorten the story and thinking up of a subplot for those two girls would take some more of the time. Hahaha, thank youuu~ I love Luz’s personality actually, no matter how cliche she is. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Many thanks Jerha! I hope you’d like Seasons of Love! That is, when I finish it. ^^ Which will probably be months from now, seeing as there’s 1% art and 5% script as we speak. XD

  4. Eliizabeeth says:

    oh, I really enjoyed this game :3 thank you for making this :3
    I got all good endings, one bad and two neutral. I’m going to get the others too :3 I love Mark omg, I enjoyed him the most :3

    • Ran S. says:

      Awww, and thank you for playing this! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hahaha, Mark is a really serious character. And he’s not that likable to me. Wahaha~ But I’m very glad you still liked him Eliizabeeth! Thank you!

    • Ran S. says:

      Hello Mili! ^^
      I’m from the Philippines. Hmm, I wonder why you think it’s uncommon? ๐Ÿ™‚ Adobo is actually one of my favorite dishes. As a matter of fact, I just had it for lunch. Haha! ^^
      Thanks for dropping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. kylee says:

    The download is not working for me either :/, when I click on the windows link it just leads me away from downloading
    or maybe i’m just not looking in the right place?

    • Ran S. says:

      Ahh, hi Kylee!
      The download link takes me to mediafire when I click it, is it the same for you too? If yes, then that is the place where you can download it. ^^
      If no, then I will try to upload a mirror. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you.

  6. Melody says:

    ‘Tell me how to get back to,back to summer paradise with you~ And I’ll be there in a heartbeat.’
    Kept humming that while playing this. XD I didn’t even know you were gonna put it in the ‘true ending’. I started laughing when I saw it.
    Anyways,this is a really cute game! Only thing I don’t like about it is the little white outline around all of the sprites. Cause I’m just picky like that. ๐Ÿ˜› It didn’t bother me that much,though.

    • Ran S. says:

      Hi Melody!
      Haha, I love that song. ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually, I always name my projects/stories after songs I love. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank youuuu! Haha, and yeah, I should have done something about that, sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was also a bit… turned off by that, but I didn’t know how to remove it. Haha. Still, thank you so much for playing! I will do my best to improve for my next game. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Skylar says:

    Cute Story. The frst ending I got was Vaughns good ending ^,,^. And James was too adorable. I was gonna pick him but someone else liked him ;o. Liked the characters too. Keep making VNs. :D!

    • Ran S. says:

      Haha, aww, thank you Skylar! Ooooh, I loved making Vaughn’s endings. Haha. And you think so? James says thank you! Haha.
      Thank you so much for liking them! ^^ I hope you’ll play Seasons of Love too, when it’s finished! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. PurpleRose328 says:

    Hello Ran! Well, I’d like to say I really like Summer Paradise! You’re a great artist and a good story writer. The background music is very soothing and relaxing- perfect for bookworms like me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how you added a lot of Filipino culture in the story like terms, games and also some myths and legends. I had a Proud-to-be-Filipino moment while reading! XD I love how the story just keeps on unfolding its elements, not taking a left or right turn, or stopping in between- I mean there are no unnecessary details! There are no unimportant scenes added just to make the story longer, which just makes the story interesting. Anyway, there are some sentences that are in wrong grammar, like some words are added that made the sentence wrong and many more cases, but don’t worry! I still enjoyed the story nevertheless and the mistakes are just minor and won’t affect the story. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, for my favorite, I must say it’s James Rodriguez. He’s just the boy of my dreams! I really can relate to Luzviminda (I love that name! What Casey said is true, whoever thought of that name is a genius!) when she’s telling Casey that she likes James. XD I love how he’s so adorable and cute! I honestly didn’t care if he’s good at nothing, maybe his passion in gaming can lead him somewhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also love how they’re having a campfire and Vaughn’s telling some Philippine myths and James is scared! So cute~ Truth to be told, I’m quite scared too. XD I also love how Arvin (or is it Mark?) who mentioned how James always cry when Casey cry, it’s so sweet! Though Mark’s heroic action of saving Casey even if he knows he can’t is sweeter, but I still like James more. :’) Also, James reminds me of Maru from Days of Divine, another VN. If you don’t know that, try playing that one. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a really good VN! Worth checking out. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Overall, I really enjoyed the game and I love it how a fellow Pinay developed Summer Paradise. The background music is very comfortable to listen at and even if there are some mistakes, it don’t affect the story at all. James Rodriguez is the BEST character in my opinion and don’t care if he’s the least popular. I still like him!
    I’ll be looking forward for your next VNs! I hope I’ll enjoy them and will be encountering some Filipino terms, games and myths. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for making my day! And thank you for promoting our country to your VNs. ๐Ÿ™‚ May God bless you! -^O^-

  9. Ran S. says:

    Omoooo~ Thank you so much PurpleRose328! It’s so sweet of you to say all those things. :”) Hearing words like this makes me think that all those days and nights I spent writing this game weren’t put to waste after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Both the art and the music aren’t mine actually! I got that from free resources. But thank you for complimenting them. I sort of had a hard time picking out which piece was more fit for a scene etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And… well, I had a mental-block while writing the script for Seasons of Love, so I took a break by writing this. SOL is set in Japan, just like so many visual novels out there, but I’ve never read a VN set in the Phil. (they’re very few I think) so I decided to write one. Haha, I apologize for the mistakes. When I read it again after it was “published” I actually noticed a few typos and grammar mistakes, but I was kinda trying to meet a deadline when I wrote this, so I didn’t notice those errors.

    Haha, wow, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I sort of dislike VNs with too many unnecessary details, yung pa-petics petics. Hahaha. But I know that they too, can be important especially when you’re writing a romance story, so I still put some in, although I kind of limited those events.

    Waaaaaah, I love all of them. โค But yes, James is really adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚ He's not exactly childish per se, but… I think he's pretty childlike. It's nice that you liked the characters! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank youuu. I got most of the events and even their personality traits and quirks from the boys of my life: my dad, my cousins, my best friends, and even my crush. :") Wahahaha.

    Yes, I've played Days of the Divine. (and even made a review of it) :") And I know! He's so adorable.

    Again, thank you so much for your wonderful words. You're so awesome. Hahaha. And yes, I'll try to make other games with Filipino qualities in them. They're really fun to make after all. ^^

    May God bless you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ran S. says:

      Oh, wow. Thank you so much Jaymari, even though… haha, I think you’re way more awesome. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for playing this! ^^ And I’m really happy that some players who’ve read this game are Filipinos. :3 Thank youuu. I hope you liked it.

  10. YY says:

    Itโ€™s 3am and Iโ€™m still playing. lol
    This is one of the best Otome game I ever played. Seriously, nakakakilig ๐Ÿ™‚
    The fact that a fellow Filipino created this made me happy enough. It takes a lot of effort, you know? ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m really proud of you! Expecting more VNs from you. God bless you ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ran S. says:

      Wow, thank you YY! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha, halaaaa, thank youuu, that means a lot to me. :”)

      Haha, I guess, pero feeling ko, kung masaya ka naman sa ginagawa mo, di mo na mapapansin kung gaano kadaming effort yung binigay mo e. Haha. And I’m really happy that a fellow Filipino played this too. It makes it a little bit more special that way.

      Thank you so much! I hope I don’t disappoint you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Torii Kinuko says:

    First of all, I think Summer Paradise is the first VN that didn’t bore me..
    I love it ๐Ÿ™‚ I like how the story is simple not much complication to it although
    it might be complicated for my character to have to choose a date…
    Anyways, for the first play I got a true ending which I didn’t expect to because
    I thought I want to help my character asking Mark out… But either way I like the true ending..
    I was going to choose Vaugh but since my character were so in love with Mark back then.. That sort of force me to help her gain Mark but when I get the true ending with Vaugh I was like wow… Words can’t describe.. I made it all sound so realistic did I even though this was just a VN… *laugh.. O yeah I would also would like to say.. Congratulation.. Great job you did with everything in the VN I love it.. I really do… I would rate this 5 stars & would recommend this to my friends who enjoy playing or reading VN โค โค

  12. Ran S. says:

    Thank you so very much, Torii Kinuko! That’s awesome. Hahaha. I’m really, truly glad that you loved it! It feels great that somebody liked something I did. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Haha, Mark is actually the “default” romance-able guy for Casey, although the default ending is not his. Still, I’m happy that you got the true end! Hahaha, and I understand. It’s not wrong to like VN characters you know. I am guilty of that myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you! ^^ The only real “job” I did was write the story and think up the plot. Lol. :)) I did spend hoooours choosing and editing the art and the music but they’re from free resources, and the engine is Ren’Py, by PyTom! ๐Ÿ™‚ So, thanks to all of those too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    And, again, thank you so much for all the wonderful words! It means a lot to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Ai-chan says:

    Ummm, sorry to bother you but I’m having a hard time to open the game. After I download it on mediafire, it takes me to this wizard thing and I’m not sure what to do! Please help me!

    • Ran S. says:

      Hello Ai-chan!
      Do you mean winRAR? It’s this… winzip thingy that I can’t quite explain, haha, but you should extract the folder somewhere. Just right click it and extract it to the place you want. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope that helps. ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Lia Fujiwara says:

    I finished playing the game just now, And I got a good ending, with Vaughn. Well, Im kinda confused if I follow Vaughn or Arvin. I say that, this game is sooo enjoyable!! (thumbs up) :D. Im looking for an otome game and I saw this on a forum. Im glad that there is a fellow- Pinoy who made this.! (thats why I can relate for the characters. Paborito ko laruin ung chinese garters dati haha ,nakakamiss :))

    Great Job!

    • Ran S. says:

      Thank you very much Lia! Hahaha. Buti naman nakakarelate ka. And, don’t worry, halos pareho lang naman routes nila eh, iba lang talaga yung ending. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you ulit! Haha. Lucky you, I was never good at those games! Hahaha.
      Yaaay, we’re proud to be Filipinos! :))

  15. Ai-chan says:

    Thank you so much! This really helped me!!!! Now I can FINALLY play this game!!!! I will totally give feedback after I’m done playing!!! Arigatou!!!!!!
    P.S Sorry, I’m just not good with computers XD!

    • Ran S. says:

      Haha, oh no, Ai-chan, there’s no need to thank me, I’m glad to be of help. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Alright, I’m counting on that! Hahaha. Thank you very much!

      • Ai-chan says:

        Hi Ran-san! Just finished your game! It was really… Ummm, how do I explain it? Fantastical! Superb! Awesmazing too! =D I LOVED it! If you’re making another game, I WANT PLAY !!!! (In other words, I’m looking foward to play the games you make) The only tinsey thing that bothered me was the small white outlines on some of the characters, but again, it didn’t bother me that much! Overall I’d give it 10 out of 10 stars!

      • Ran S. says:

        Thanks Ai-chan! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s awesome. Hahaha. You’re so nice. =)

        Ahh, yes, haha, sorry for that! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Haha, but thank you so muuuuch for playing. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you loved it!

        Ahaaa, Seasons of Love is in progress right now. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you’ll give it a try when it’s finished. ^^

  16. AliceBaskerville says:

    Wow, You’re from Philippines? me too ๐Ÿ™‚ I just started playing the summer paradise and I’m loving it! keep it up ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ran S. says:

      Yes! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s so cool. Thanks for giving Summer Paradise a try! โค Feel free to comment here again when you're done playing! Hahaha.

  17. Giecel says:

    Hi ๐Ÿ™‚ Just finished your game ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s good. I’m from the Philippines too ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s nice that the setting is in the Philippines explaining Filipino culture and tradition. A bit of comment. The conversation parts are somehow long. I wish there are more choices to be made and errands or chores. But your game is really awesome <3. Nakakakilig ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for creating that wonderful game.

    • Ran S. says:

      Thank you for the feedback Giecel! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha, oooh, astig. I’m happy that there are people from the Philippines who have played my game. Thank youuuu.

      Haha, lol, sorry, I’m more of a writer, haha, and it’s my first time to try making a (complete) visual novel. :)) But thank you, still. Maraming salamat! Hahaha.

    • Ran S. says:

      Hi Giecel! Haha. Oh my gosh, thank you for the interest. Haha. Belated merry christmas and happy new year too. ๐Ÿ™‚ And yup, as a matter of fact, I have a game in progress right now, entitled “The Thing With Mistletoes”. It’s a (really) late Christmas special. Loooool. It’s actually a romance/mystery fic. When it’s done, I hope you play it. Hahaha. Post your feedback here too, ha? Maraming salamat! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Kaihlee says:

    aww! how come I ain’t able to find the download button? Hello? Can someone tell me where I can find it? Ang hirap po kasi hanapin eh .. BTWs, gosh, my name is also the name of one of the characters here .. XD

    • Ran S. says:

      Hello Akemi! Um, after downloading the Mac link and extracting the file somewhere on your PC, click the .exe file and you should be good to go. ๐Ÿ™‚

      If you can’t, there’s another solution to that. Do you have Ren’Py installed? If yes, then simply put Summer Paradise in the Ren’Py folder and select SP from the game list. Afterwards, click the Launch Project button. That’s it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for downloading!

  19. BiBiโ™ฅ says:

    when I download it I just saw the WinZip thing then on that I saw Summer Paradise i click it and run but all I can see after I run is a link with is it missing?

    • Ran S. says:

      Oh my gosh, so sorry for the very very late reply! I hope that problem is already solved BiBi. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hmmm, but if not, well, the WinZip file should be extracted, after which you can finally launch the application file.
      Thanks for downloading!

  20. pinksweet14 says:

    Hi! First of all I’d like to thank and congratulate you because this game is great! As what has been previously mentioned and addressed on, one of the flaws I saw was the character graphics and a little on the grammar, but anyone who played this thru and obtained the good endings and the one true ending would agree with me that in the end those things wouldn’t matter as much because this game was very interesting and heart-warming. It has served its purpose well, it was a fun read and a good entertainment. The background imgs and sounds are really nicely chosen too.

    I love the characters, especially Vaughn. Even without much attention focused on him, I think I somehow ‘fell for him’ when he started talking about family. I was like D’aww, you wise little piece of furball of cuteness–I mean coolness. I would have hoped that his route was more developed (his ending seemed a little rushed butbutbut it’s good nontheless) and I understand that there’re other scenes to be prioritized for the main flow of the story (doesn’t matter right? coz of the two endings ehehe). Despite liking Vaughn’s character more, I just ADORE and LOVE Arvin’s route. I think it was the only one what made me feel a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions like feeling ‘kilig’, happy, excited, and even that one little ‘kirot sa puso’ in one or two moments. Mark is such a tsundere at times, which is also cute in his own way. It somehow tore my heart when I found that he waited for Casey when he was sick AND in the rain. I honestly think that that’s one of the most stupid yet SWEETEST thing a guy could do for a girl. Yet, somehow (and I see you labeled him as the default romance character), I didnt feel like going for him at first (he was my third lol). Idk why because his type was usually my type. As for James, he’s such an adorable guy! I know you said his route was least developed but still, there’re some good bits with his ending, which I found cute. I went for him last because at the back of my head I thought him and Liz are cuter together. Good job too on making a likeable protagonist because to be honest, other female protagonists (character design and whatnot) tend to irk me lol. Hmm, Kyla isn’t too bad either but her character dev’t went too fast I think. I wouldn’t mind seeing James and Kyla together though, and Vaughn and Liz would be cute too ๐Ÿ˜€

    I applaud you and your inclusion of the Filipino culture in this story and how you used those elements to fuel this story. Sa totoo lang pinoy rin ako (mukhang mrami ngang pinoy na naglalaro nito lol, tapos nirecommend ko rin ito sa friends ko) pero hindi ko alam yung isa o dalawang bagay na sinama mo dito bilang trivia, lol. Hindi ko rin kinaya yung mga ‘quotable quotes’ ng mga characters, yung tipong nakakapang-inlove talaga sa totoong buhay pag may ganung sinabi. Sobrang pro, promise. Sana nga sinave ko yung iba ehehe, or laruin nlng ulit.

    This msg became longer than I intended, lol! Ciao and may your create more fun games like this!

    • Ran S. says:

      Omg, this is like a review all on its own PinkSweet14! โค Squeeeee. Sobrang amazing ng feeling. Hahaha. Thank you so much.

      Sorry sa writing, hahaha, mej namadali ko nga yung ibang part. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hindi ko na rin na-proofread kasi nga, masyado yata ako nagmadali. Hahaha. Playing it again after almost a year made me notice so many mistakes and typos! Hahahaha. Nakakahiya tulooooy. ๐Ÿ™‚ As for the graphics, I apologize for that as well. Hahaha. Pag ako natuto mag-drawing, sana makagawa na ako ng sariling sprites! Haha! =)

      You said it, Vaughn (plus Arvin too haha) is also like the kuya I never had. I'm an only child kasi, and I've always wanted to have an older brother. =) The traits and qualities that I put on those two gangster wannabes are from my "older brothers" in life: older cousins, older friends, and mga kuya-kuyahan sa school. Actually, all my characters are based on real life people, though they may not have the same names as the ones in this game.

      Awww, you're right too, I did rush some character developments! That's why I'm planning to write a short sequel for this, or maybe even a prequel, covering their back stories and featuring more of our country's very rich culture. Hopefully after I finish this very delayed project of mine (TTWM). ^^

      Anyway, thank you so much for playing through all the routes and giving your awesomely detailed feedback. Sobrang sarap talaga sa feeling na may nag-eenjoy sa pinaghirapan mo, kahit pa 8 days lang yan. Hahahaha. Thank you thank you talaga. I super duper appreciate it! Weeeeeeee, kilegsxz talaga. Haha. Thank you so, so, so much again for your kind words!

    • Ran S. says:

      Thank you so much Berlin! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Unfortunately, no, there’s no Android version for this game. Someday, hopefully. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for the support!

    Hello Ran-san, again I’ll be sharing my thoughts on one of your visual novels. Aaaah, ok, where can I start? Hmm, well, first of all I must say that I liked this VN almost as much as I liked Once Upon a Hallow’s Eve, I found the story interesting as well as the characters. My favorite routes were James’ and Arvin’s (in that order); James because he is SUCH a sweet boy! (and as someone else has commented before, he’s pretty much the boy of my dreams xD he, he) and even though you said that his route wasn’t as developed as the others, I must say that I don’t think that’s the case, it was really enjoyable (the only thing was that he and Casey didn’t kiss at the end of his route like in the other routes, other than that I think his route is one of the best). Aaah, all the things he does for the MC make you go “awwww”, like the fact that he cried whenever she cried. He’s such a lovable character ๐Ÿ™‚

    Arvin’s route was really interesting, I honestly thought that he wasn’t into things like smoking or drinking (not only because of what the other characters say about him but also because even himself at one point says something that leads you to think that), I really wasn’t expecting the revelation that he’s not as “good” as he seems but well, those things happen in real life, sometimes people make mistakes and get involved in things that will not lead them to anything good. I really appreciate the realism you put into things like these. Arvin isn’t really a bad boy, just someone who has… well, flaws, like everyone else and hopefully has learned something after what his “friends” did to him.

    The other characters were nice too. Vaughn’s route is my third favorite route, he is a nice guy though I didn’t ended
    like, in the end did Luz really like Arvin or was she just saying that so Casey wouldn’t feel so bad for pursuing James? Also, i

      Anyway, I was saying that I didn’t end* rooting for him and the MC to get together as much because they aren’t as close/don’t know each other as much as the MC does with the other guys.

      About Mark I must say that I thought that he was going to be the character I’d probably like the most but ended up being the character I liked the least… But he does have his sweet side, like the things he did for Casey when they were kids (waiting in the rain even though he was sick just to see the MC and say goodbye…), the only thing is that for his and Casey’s relationship to be a happy one, time is recquired.

      (Here is where the part in which I talked about Luz was supposed to be, I was trying to say that I didn’t understand some things like that “I’ve given up on James now, I realized I like Arvin more” and also that why does Casey say in Jame’s good end that Kyla must be shocked because James used to like her and now is with… well, her. I thought James liking Kyla was all a cover up?)

      And finally I want to congratulate you for another well-done game, it was a pretty good VN and for it being your first released game, I think it was great ๐Ÿ˜€
