A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux


Snowdrops are the first flowers of the year to bloom. Their blossoming signifies the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Heat radiates from the snowdrop itself allowing the flower to melt the snow around it. Despite the harsh odds stacked against it, the snowdrop is able to flourish by creating an environment that it can thrive in. It is for this reason that the snowdrop is a symbol of hope. The dark times will end and, in their place, unmistakable warmth.


Lilah Scott, aspiring filmmaker, used to love the holiday season until her older bother, Craig, passed away. To escape the painful memories and forced smiles, Lilah decides to work at her sister-in-law’s Inn for a few months.  She doesn't account for the prolific (and arrogant) guest who rents the entire place for the winter season. Take charge of Lilah as she tries to find inspiration for her next movie script, balance her duties accommodating a handsome but unruly guest, and navigate her feelings of grief and loneliness.

Okay so I just finished this game. It was really really touching??? I felt so bad for Lilah and the way you've written her internal voice and just her entire character is like. It's amazing. Lilah is now one of my favorite protagonists in a game I've ever played. 

I really liked her love story with Archer and felt like their dynamic and slow building romance was super sweet. Especially when compared to the more somber tones of the remaining game, it was a nice little bright spot. 

The relationship between Lilah and Anjali is SO sweet. I think their scenes were my favorite ones in the games. I teared up a little bit while playing this. Christmas time is usually a very festive and joyful holiday, but you've really nailed it here how families cope with loss during what is supposed to be the "happiest time of the year". Absolute beautiful introspective work on this piece. Beautiful and touching. 

Thank you so much for making this game. What a wonderful, sad, yet touching xmas gift. I'll be remembering this title for a long time. 

I know I'm a bit late but I just played your game and really enjoyed it. The drawings and soundtracks were awesome and the story was touching and gave me hope. It was a great experience thank you

Thank you so much for the kind comment! I'm so glad you liked the game and had fun!
