Yesssssss. Kept you waiting huh? I FINALLY FINISHED IT! Sorry it took me so long! I got lazy : / but never gave up! Holy- almost a *whole* month! Anyhoo, renpy has a translation function, so it was pretty easy to do it, and I already added a language button inside the preferences. This was so fun! Thanks for the oportunity. Also, reading every single dialogue just made me fall in love with all the characters! You made an amazing game! Download it here! -- Oh! Also, there's a bug I couldn't fix :( the credits aren't showing, no matter the language the game's in -- I also tried viewing the credits in the original version but it seems that the code is not working properly

Hello Chelles!! Thank you so much for your efforts with the translation! Glad that you had some fun with it :). I'll have a look for the bug you mentioned and see if I can do anything about it! If I were to credit you for the translation, what name/contact details might you prefer?

Ohh I see that your credit is baked into the ABOUT page, so all is good! Thanks again for all your wonderful help and translation! I got the credits to display properly in the About/Sobre, so we're good to go!

I also didn't have any problems with the credits loading after various endings; if you were auto-skipping-through screens, it does just blow through the credit screen scroll super quick and takes you back to the main menu after...maybe that's what happened in your case.

yeah maybe that's what happened, so everything is fine and everyone is happy :)

Hi so, I just wanted to say that I simply loved this game, the artwork and cheesy lines, the voice acting <3, it's all simply lovely. And I just wanted to ask like, can I translate the game ',:)? To Brazilian Portuguese. I was messing around the files and I found the dialogues and decided to try to translate it, I'm bilingual and fluent in both languages so it's kinda like a fun little project to me, and I just wanted to ask you if there's any problem with that, because if there is I would absolutely understand. (I also want no money or something like that, it's just a way for me to show some love)

Hi Chelles!

Thank you for your kind message, I'm glad that you enjoyed this silly game <3! I made this game for fun/not-profit/so everyone could have a chance to play it, so we're aligned on that value. Yes, you can definitely go ahead and translate the game dialogue. Thank you for your interest and labour in doing so (regardless of how far you get).

I would be happy to incorporate it into the game later if you do take the translation to the finish line, so other Brazilian Portuguese speakers can enjoy the game too, with full credit to you, of course. It seems that you already know your way around Renpy, but if there's anything else I can provide to facilitate your translation, please let me know!

I'm so happy to hear that, and don't worry, I can find  my way around things, and I already finished translating the first day, so it's only a matter of time until I finish it

it will not let me install this using the itch.io windows app

when I click the install button it doesn't seem to find the file?

Hi there! I updated a few things on my end and tested it in the app, and was able to install. Please give it a try on your end to see if it works! If not, let me know.

Awesome! Installed just fine.  Interesting start    ;-)

Waiting andro release

Absolutely fantastic :)!

Thanks, glad you enjoyed!

Any plans for mac version in the future?

There are both mac and PC versions available on the game page https://dirchansky.itch.io/come-for-a-drink !

Somehow I kept getting the Ending 9 and I can't figure out why.

Do you have something like a guide?

Hi there, there are some hints on this post https://itch.io/post/623422; I don't officially have a guide, but feel free to respond to this comment again if you want more specific direction afterwards! Essentially all ducks need to be in a row in order to get the appropriate endings...

Cheers!

Any plans for Android version in the future? :)

Gostaria que colocassem uma tradução para português-Brasil (PT-BR)

Hi there,Thanks to user https://chellestter.itch.io, version 3 of the game now has a translation to PT-BR. You can change to that language in the Settings!

I WANT THAT PROTEIN WHEEEYYY

I really love all aspects of this visual novel. The art? . The music? So soft. The voice? . The various endings??? I LOVE, especially ending 7.

Thank you so much for bringing this game into the world!!

Hi Mei!  I'm beaming and honoured that you enjoyed the game enough to leave such a lovely comment, thank you so much! I'm also glad that you enjoyed ending 7!!!!!! One of my favs as well!!!!!! Thank you for playing, and it is my pleasure to have brought a bit of fun to your day!

Let me start off by saying I adore this game, the art and voice acting are really cute ;w;

but oh man. I cannot for the LIFE of me get the other endings. I got 2, 3, 4, 8 and 9, but can't figure out the rest ;_;

Hi there! Thank you for playing and enjoying the game! Did you want any hints for the other ending? I'm cool to share if you do :)

YEAAAAH that would be so cool!!!! i really wanna see the other endings >:3c also alain best girl

Here are some ~vague~ hints/spoilers!

1. coffee, compliment, avoid job talk, Fung; repeat 3x

5. tea, compliment, avoid job talk, Fung; repeat 3x

6. tea, compliment, avoid job talk, Ceilic; repeat 3x

7. fruity juice, be in the favour of the first 3, but botch the 4th

Alain...is a huge dork...as they all are, hahahaha

YEAAAAAH COMPLETIONIST RUN BABEY!!!!!!!! I got them all, thanks for your help!!!! And thank u for making this game, I enjoyed it a lot!!



side note fung sounds like mccree and i love it

Nice!! Congrats and thanks for playing through it all!!!!!!! Ahh I went and listened to McCree's voice and I can see what you mean! Fung is voiced by the very talented Bradley Gareth http://bradleygareth.wixsite.com/bradleygareth 

yeah i think i need less vagueness. I got endings 12,5,6,7,8,9. Ur tips did help a lot,so thx.

https://dirchansky.itch.io/come-for-a-drink/devlog/265536/all-9-game-endings-gui... Just posted a guide here! Enjoy~

I absolutely loveeeddd this game and was really excited to play this with my friend. But it seems like the ending is glitched and no matter what I do i get the same ending. 

 I hope it gets fixed if it is an issue cause I'd love to see the other endings too :o

Hi Barrelcat! 

Thank you for your kind comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed your playthrough! I've had a couple of other folks tell me that they've successfully obtained more than 1 ending; are you using the mac or PC build? I'll play test it on my end again to double check for this glitch/error! Which ending are you landing on over the over again? Is it ending 9? The other possibility is that you may have not chosen the "appropriate" combination of choices during your play through (it's pretty specific), and if you want, I'm happy to give you hints/pointers re: how to get the other endings :)

I use a PC and I do get ending 9.  I've tried a few other choices but I usually still end up at the drink club without the choice of being able to choice a drink, to which I'm sent home and then I receive ending 9. Was not having a choice a part of it? :0  Maybe I just suck at this xD

I put in a screenshot to show you what I mean.

Hi there! It is completely normal to not be able to select the drink on the last visit; the final drink is automatically chosen for you based on the previous selections you made in the game. The game logic was designed this way, so please don't blame yourself!! 

I'm going to post some hints below  (if you want to read them) and hopefully you get to the other endings soon!

  • Hint 1: the choices/selections you make when it's "gym" time have no bearing on the end result; they're there to give you a testing ground to see how the characters react to you; you can easily skip through these.
  • Hint 2: You have to go all-in and choose the same type of drink every time you visit the club, in order to get a character-specific ending, and build rapport with that character exclusively: Fung tends to like to talk about himself, Sunny tends to like to talk about tea, and Ceilic tends to like to talk about what he's thinking. Of course compliments are generally liked by all! You can generally tell based on their reactions, what they like and what they don't like.
  • Hint 3: You need to inception the guy to think/talk about the other guy (if you're hoping for those kinds of endings).

That's all for now :) Happy to reveal more if you are still having difficulties! Thanks for bringing all of this to my attention!

I played through the whole game and had a blast! I laughed a lot, like so much, and the voice acting is great (and a plus for someone like me who has the bad habit of not taking the time to read) I love all of the characters and highly recommend everyone play this game!

I recorded my first run of the game and I hope my reactions shows how much I enjoyed Come for a Drink!



OMG thank you for your comment!! I feel blessed that you took the time to play the game *and* record it for a live play!!!!!!  I'm glad that you enjoyed the game!!!!!! I also appreciate your own self narration for the main character during the video hahaha <3! To be honest I can't pronounce a bunch of the drink names either LOL...
