A downloadable game for Windows

There's nothing new under the moon. All stories go like this: Encounter. Curiosity. Attraction. Love

Two girls meet in a garden where the spider lilies bloom. 

One girl seeks the devil's gentleness.

The other denies that the devil is capable of love at all.

Will the spider lilies grow in a symbiotic relationship, or will they become like the higanbana, and part ways for good?

Symbiotic Love is a coming-of-age Yuri Visual Novel set in an All Girls' High School, between two people fated to meet, become acquaintances, friends, and eventually, lovers. Yet, what has fate in store for love so perfect, so symbiotic, that they could only live, and perish together?

Symbiotic Love is a prequel to Melancholy Love, which is also available on Steam and itch.io:

Are there any plans to release this visual novel here on itch.io?

I am not a great fan of Steam, and rather buy this visual novel on this platform. I also bought Melancoly Love on itch.io, and would love to have both visual novels at the same place.

Due to the low sales number on itch for Melancholy Love, we're unlikely to provide a full version of Symbiotic Love on itch.io at this point. The Steam version will be released later today, however.

Ah - Well.. Bummer - Well I guess I have no other choice than buy it on Steam, but unlikely soon. Maybe at some time in the future then.

Thanks for the reply.

i haven't downloaded the game yet just watched the trailer and it looks awesome can't wait lol


Esta en español?


g a y


An interesting visual novel, though the pacing sometimes are too slow for me, but that just personal opinion~

The visual and music are excellent, though should've put an in-game warning for blood/disturbing images. Can't wait to see the end of the demo~


Part 2, um why is she alive??? Think this is a flashback but well didn't expect their characters to be so different from the start~ (though to be noted someone died is indeed something that could change people behavior).


Part 3, there seems to be more story in this part as more choices appears~ It's their first proper talk in school and also when do Jisou meets Zihua in their childhood??? Very interesting~


Forgot to update it, I was busy with college. The trio chemistry are more shown here, also the contrast between Zihua's family and Jisou's family. Also a little background of why Zihua's grows like this~

The last one. I've finally reached the end of the demo. It has many good points, the music, the characters personality, the plot, top voice acting, and the art. But I do have some point that I feel is kinda bad, though to be noted, I'm not a professional and my critique shouldn't be taken as important. I feel the pacing is too slow on transition to the next character or the next scene, and the dialog (I didn't know whether it's translated or not) was kind of 'funny' at time considering this was supposed to be a sad melancholic slice of life visual novel. Such as the comment on Jianyu's hair, "Like two horse ass rubbing on my face" (I don't exactly remember the dialog) or here in this video like "Zihua's diving like an ostrich"/"Like a camel back about to break". Other than that everything's good. Once again, it's not from a professional pov, so ignore it if it's not important.


I really loved your visual novels. Beautiful art, and good storyline, can't wait for full story.


I was a massive fan of melancholy love, i loved the characters, the designs, the music, the character development, especially the times where the characters talk and bicker just like friends, not always talking about the big story element, melancholy love became my favorite VN right away and symbiotic love didn't disappoint at all, even though its only a demo, its a heck of a good demo and i wanted to keep reading it right away, you guys do such an amazing job and would love to see more characters in this universe after this game, maybe a actually sequel to melancholy love? but i wouldnt mind a spin off or something in the same universe, i love the game so much, and i can't wait to play the full release, i one hundred support you guys and keep up the good work

i did a Full gameplay demo playthrough of the game.

Thanks for your kind words!

:) just keep up the good work, I can tell you guys truly care about what you create n can't wait to see what you make next


Just bought it on steam and looking forward to playing it. I am a MASSIVE fan of Yuri novels so always glad to pick another one up as there are far too few of them.


Same here, I also just purchased it on Steam. Long Live Yuri.
