About

 

Two Scoops is a fresh, new visual novel + dating sim about love and ice cream! It's the story of a big girl in a small town who finds romance at her local ice cream shop. 

In this game, you take on the role of a young woman who has just started a new job at a local, family-owned ice cream shop. She's taken on a big responsibility, too: two of the employees are going away soon, leaving her to fill their shoes! With only a week remaining before their departure, the situation seems tricky for our protagonist, but she is determined to show that she's the right one for the job, all while growing closer to her co-workers along the way.

This demo is a proof of concept. Nothing shown is final.

In this game, you can romance one of four of your unique coworkers: 

 

 

 

 Our cast includes love interests of varying personalities, multiple genders and diverse backgrounds, so we hope that there will be someone for everyone to love! And with four routes and eight endings, there's plenty of room to explore and get to know that special person.

Even more, Two Scoops offers players a chance to play as a protagonist who breaks the mold of traditional leading lady in a dating sim. Name your character and choose from one of three basic appearance options so that you can play the game in a way that feels true to you.

 In addition to a traditional storytelling experience, Two Scoops will include some fun and exciting bonus features, to help bring players into the world of the game and make your interactions with the cast something special.

 Access interactive in-game texting and social media to communicate with and learn about your co-workers, even when you're apart, and share your scoop on the Chirp social network to see what the others have to say.  

If you're a fan visual novels, ice cream, and romance, or you're just someone who wants to see some fresh new faces in your gaming experience, then Two Scoops is the game for you. With your help, we hope to put together a sweet slice-of-life visual novel that has all the charm, drama, and romance of the standard dating sim, while also offering a diverse cast and queer romance options.  

That's it! Be sure to support our campaign, and let your friends know, to help us bring this sweet summer romance to life!

Two Scoops is a joint venture between myself, my hand-picked creative team, and the experienced visual novel developers over at Pillowfight. Like the game's cast, our team comes from a variety of identities and backgrounds, and together we hope to craft an experience that is exciting, relatable, and above all, heartfelt.

Pillowfight (We Know The Devil, Rose of Winter, Ghosts of Miami) helps diverse creative teams create visual novels that are polished, accessible, and inclusive.

My name's Paige Hall (you probably know me as thumbcramps), and I'll be doing the lead character artwork, art direction, and story overview. 

Vivian Ng is the brilliant artist that will be providing the backgrounds. She's done covers for BOOM! Studios Adventure Time series, as well as colors for Dark Horse Comics' The Legend of Korra series. 

Our story is being written by a team of talented writers, Diana Taylor (Queen At Arms, The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car) and Katy Forsythe (Love is Strange), both of which are very experienced with the layout and tone of dating sims and visual novels.

Lain Farlight is helping with UI design and development. She's worked on a variety of games, such as Devolver Digital's Always Sometimes Monsters, and brings her visual flair to the game's multiple interfaces.

Last but not least, the lovely Emily Fitch will be doing our music. Take a listen to the Two Scoops shop theme below!

Risks and challenges

Making a game is difficult, but the team members at Pillowfight has successfully launched five visual novels to date, all commercial titles sold on multiple platforms. They bring a lot of game development experience to the table, and will be with me every step, from concept to release, to support after we launch.

On a personal level, I have experience in running a kickstarter campaign and fufilling rewards, so I expect everything to run smoothly. With Kickstarter, there is always a possibility of bumps in the road, but I believe in my ability to communicate with my backers and deliver rewards in a timely manner.
