Tonight isn't meant to be a special occasion. You aren't expecting to make some kind of memory of a lifetime on your second date with Taylor — you're just getting ready to leave for casual dinner outing between two people who are pretty fond of each other. That's all there is to it.

Why, then, is it so hard to pick an outfit for the night? Why do none of the options feel like the right one?

Heart on Your Sleeve is a feel-good visual novel about how self-image can affect interactions with others. It offers a number of choices for a split-route experience, each revealing something more about the relationship between the protagonist and Taylor, as well as exploring concerns about comfort, appearance and the insecurities that accompany them.

Made for SuNoFes 2021.


  • 13k+ words (~30 min to an hour of play time)

this game is so so cute, Taylor is so sweet and it was so relaxing to play. Thank you for making this!


this is so cute, i was reminded of my partner and now im just, sitting, thinking about them,


I liked this a lot- the colours and music, the way it's written and just everything!! 

Oh and I don't know if this was intentional but I like how you use they/them pronouns on Taylor,, it feels more "including" to the player, I hope u understand what I mean T_T Either way this was so lovely thank you all for making this game!! 


Wow this was just so so sweet. I really needed this.

Pure, sweet, happy squishiness. Aside from being adorable, and adorable, and romantic, and adorable, did I say adorable? Just checking...

But I also really love the sound design, how the rain changes when you open the umbrella, such a nice atmospheric touch. Thank you!
