A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Welcome to Blooming Buds!

As the sun rises for yet another Valentine’s Day at the Blooming Buds Flower Shop, Viola must prepare both herself and the store for those who seek to show their love to someone. And what better way is there to show that your love is in bloom than with a bouquet of flowers?

Enjoy this short romantic visual novel, that features an LGBTQ+ plot & cast, as you lend an ear to each customer to pick the flowers befitting for their bouquet, and watch as love in its many forms blossoms.

Blooming Buds is a small VN project created in Ren'Py - for our very first itch.io jam (Valentine's VN Jam 2021) - by a group of college friends in between classes.
