Thank you so much for this game! I saw it on Twitter and intended on playing it, and I think I managed to play it at the perfect time. It's a very complete experience, and I enjoyed the format of the dialogue. Very awesome, and thank you for making it!

Abby, your daughter is meeting Margot your girlfriend for the first time. It's an awkward situation that only the right pizza toppings can solve.
Explore their back stories and make a tough decision and everything will be FINE. No weird shit will happen.
... We swear.
Thanks for playing!

hey whats your next game called
That was amazing. I expected a fun little ordering sim. Was I surprised lol. Great job! I'll be watching for your next projects.
Hey, your game was a really great experience! You did so well in combining the different aspects of the story and balancing them as well as presenting them to the player (in addition with very nice and fitting illustration) . You really had me hooked and surprised me a number of times with the turn of events while also tied all loose ends together in the end, I enjoyed this a lot. I'm very much looking forward to everything you have in mind for future projects. thank you for this game. :)
Thank you! We are so glad you had a great experience playing our weird little game. Comments like these are so motivating for us, so thanks for taking the time to play our game and let us know what you thought. It means a lot to us :)
Just finished getting all the bad and the worse endings. I'm not particularly good at completing games without a walkthrough so I'm pretty proud of myself.
I adore this game! The art, the animations, the innovative concept, the excellent execution, the polish and oomph, the character design, the colors, the music, the twists and surprises. . . . I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that I am extremely impressed that your team got all this done within a mere month! Kudos to your team!
More than anything else, the message/theme of the game really shines through. I LOVE games that have a little more thought put into the choice mechanic, rather than the simpler affection-points type of system. The way you choose to communicate your message really makes perfect sense. You had me nodding along enthusiastically as I barrelled toward the (true) ending. <3
To sum it all up, thank you for making this wonderful game and sharing it with us. I'm waiting with bated breath for any future games that this team might release!
This comment really made our day! Thank you for all your kind words and we are so glad you had a good experience playing our game. It's so cool that you played through all the endings - we love it when people %100 Order a Pizza.
We tried to do something different with the VN format and it is very encouraging that people are enjoying it.
Thanks again for this comment and for the reply on our LemmaSoft thread. We are hard at work on a much bigger game and it is so motivating to hear that you want to see more from us.
I'm amazed that this was your first game together as a team, and that you did this all within the course of a month. It was incredibly well done. I'm actually a writer/video producer for GameLuster, and this is one of the games I'll be playing for the next episode of our Indie Power Hour series!
Thanks so much! We're so glad that you liked it. We'll be sure to watch that episode when it comes out.
this is really well-made, with very good pacing! a perfectly executed idea. i quite enjoyed it, great work!
you should make a number 2
We're working on a large scale game next. It's not pizza related but it still has our brand of weirdness.
I really liked this game but can't seem to figure out how to get the super bad endings.
Thanks for playing! Try making the wrong pizzas on every level you can. Hope that helps!
Graphics is cool!
this was very cute and it hit home, not everyone gets a happy ending like that, i probably wont, but im glad abby (even though she's a fictional character) did
I really enjoyed this game! I don't know what I expected but it was....out of this world. Anyway I really love the art - all the characters are so unique, and the animations were such a nice touch!
(spoiler?) Lastly my favourite part was when I get to tell my daughter I LOVE HER. THANKS
Wow, this game was an experience! I really love the art style, the animations, basically everything! This game is really unique and bizzare. I played through all the endings because the story had me hooked! Would love to see more visual novels like this <3
I just got done playing the game and really enjoyed it. It kinda has a doki doki vibe to it. Thanks for a great game :)
I played this last night and really loved it! What a fun and wonderfully weird experience. I'm really impressed with some of the crazy ideas you came up with, as well as with the nice character animations and the pizza app. Can't wait to see your next project!
Thanks so much! Glad that you liked it. We're going to be getting back to a bigger game -that we put on hold to participate in NanoRenO- soon. We'll keep you posted!
thank you I am a single parent (dad) and I worked for pizza hut for about a decade I am looking forward to playing the novel
