I've played through the demo, and unfortunately I found a bug: if I get my Kindness high enough that Miso invites Ayame to cooking lessons at her house, I keep getting "An exception has occurred" error messages, because the game can't find the file backgrounds/miso_livingroom.jpg so I can't view the cooking scene.

Thank you for informing me of this bug! That chapter of Miso's story was actually supposed to be unavailable in the demo version as it's not complete. I'll make the change so others don't run into the same issue as you did. Thanks again.


You're welcome!


Finally got around giving the demo a chance, 1.2 it seems.

Can certainly see the potential here :)

Ahhh, thank you for playing! I hope you enjoyed it! ^^

isthis game have NSFW scenes?

Hello! No, this will not have NSFW scenes.


Thoroughly enjoying the alpha to Project Kawasaki so far! 💜

I did enjoy reading thorougly Project Kawasaki for about 45 mintues till the end of the demo.

The level up system were an neat addition into this.  I can't imagine how the dev can manage this like an RPG. 

The story was decent enough to understand. Ayame Kawasaki is restarting her life in her high school with some usaul high school drama with some students. The only friend so far she made an happy girl named Miso.  I can tell that Ayame wants to get back to an happy life too cos she looks like the postive type from her design and looks.

So, yeah; decent story for the start part, nice friend of Miso, I like how Ayame's life goes so far and getting use to the level up system was neat and good on how to level up from reading books and watching stuff.

Can't wait for more.

Thanks so much for trying it out! Glad you enjoyed the story so far! Haha, programming that level up system was all me with a little help from my brother. :)
