A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Tomorrow Will Be Dying is a relaxing, story-driven visual novel about finding yourself through your connections with other people.

Slice of Life

Rated 13+


B was popular among her class-mates in high school, often surrounded by people that were drawn to her prince-like demeanor. She was practically the opposite of what others thought her to be, being a dead-pan introvert that spends her days collecting and raising bugs, but she hid away her true self in fear of being isolated. She found safety in the occult club alongside AC and N, who all had strange interests of their own. However, by the end of their senior year, both A and N disappeared without a trace.

Now B is a nineteen year-old entomology student pursuing her passions at Mokuzai University. She and C have gotten used to their daily life-styles with only each other around, but their paths only truly start to set in motion when A and N unexpectedly crash back into their lives.

Follow along B's story as she reconnects with old friends, makes new ones, and overcomes the traumas of her past.

Planned Full Game Features

  • Forge relationships - Spend time with the other characters in the story - each with their own dreams, aspirations and worries to discover.
  • Balance your life -  Eat, sleep, and exercise to maintain health in your pursuit of happiness. Manage "fluid" stats such as hunger or energy in order to increase permanent stats such as academics or cooking ability. These stats, in addition to conditions such as brave or drunk affect the choices you can make. 
  • A variety of activities - Shop for groceries, cook meals using ingredients, collect insects, study, play video games, go to class or work, hit the gym - there will be some down time between events every day to use as you see fit.
  • Party System - Certain characters can join you as you move about town, providing certain benefits to activities such as boosting your cooking success rate, helping pay for groceries, etc.
  • A plethora of art - While visually more simple than other visual novels, "Tomorrow Will Be Dying" features unique, line-boiled sprites for each character to help them come to life and convey their emotion. We plan to make the game chock-full of CGs, mini-panel CGs, and different backgrounds!

i played this game like a month ago and I really enjoyed it, waiting for the full version :D

We appreciate you coming back to leave this lovely comment! Hope you'll enjoy the full version when it comes out; thank you! <3


I played this game around late 2020 and I have to say that this visual novel was so touching and interesting despite it only being the demo. I was intrigued by the different things you could do during your free time in this game and absolutely love the background and character illustrations. I look forward to seeing this Visual novel completed so I can replay it again with the new scenes added!

Aaa, thank you so much for the kind words! We really hope you enjoy the full when it's released, we're revamping a lot of things including the free time! ^v^


This is such an amazing visual novel honestly, it was such an experience, with the art and music and the interactions!

Thank you, we're so glad you enjoyed it! <3

(1 edit) (+2)

Perfect Story, Perfect Soundtrack, Perfect Art, Perfect Interface, You guys did an amazing job:)


We're so glad you liked the demo this much!! Really hope you end up enjoying the full version as well! ^^


clearly the itch.io algorithm has failed me thus far because this game is beautiful. i think it's something that a lot of people have been looking for on this site. thank you guys for the work you've put into this project :)


Seriously, that is SO kind of you. Thank you so much  for the lovely words!! <3


I'm obsessed. Seriously, I love this game.

That's super nice of you, thank you! QvQ


People are sleeping indie games bruh because this hoe was fire!

Thanks so much for playing our game Josh, your commentary was great and we hope you enjoy the rest of the demo! <3

omg... hi !! i made an account so i could comment !! i found this game because of a moot from twitter; and im so glad that i decided to try and play it~


the art, the music, the story and the characters are all !! so !! awesome !!!!! i can tell how much love and hard work you guys poured into creating this amazing game. i just finished playing it, and i would love to suggest a few things, if possible...? ^__^


[[ spoiler warning! ]]


>> at the near end of the game, when b and c started talking about hisao and their past, there was little to no emotional impact. i hope that a full (? or sufficient? I forgot the word) backstory about their childhood would occur before reaching this point in the game… so we could understand their situation a lot better.

>> when b and n were talking to each other while pushing a’s car, it felt awkward because they were staring at each other the whole conversation HAHAHA I suggest that b maybe rests her forehead on the car on certain points. you could also avert their gazes!

>> I hope you guys tackle a and n’s lives too :0 theyre very interesting characters, and i would like to know more about them.

>> perhaps add an auto play option?

>> i think you should put an indicator on the health, stress, etc bars...? especially if it starts becoming an important aspect of the game. i thought having 0 hunger means b isnt hungry... spoiler alert i made her starve throughout the whole game ASJKFLDJ

>> not really a suggestion, but you should fix the transparent part! *photo below*

HUWAHHH im sorry if I didn’t phrase my words properly T__T im terrible with words… AND IM ALSO SORRY if the suggestions ive mentioned are actually already in the game...

good luck with developing this game!!!!! i know how difficult it is to create one... i applaud your hard work!!!!! *claps*

im gonna wait for the full release of this game ^__^ thank you for reading!!!!! :]


Wahh thank you so much for the kind comment! And thank you for the critiques on the game, we definitely agree with all of them and we've been quite critical of it ourselves for a while, so we have already changed parts of the story to hopefully add more impact and weight to the story + characters. Also yeah the UI is in quite a rough state in the demo, so we'll do our best to polish it up!


i am ashamed that i procrastinated for so long to play this masterpiece, really.

the art is breathtaking, the music is nice and calming, the story and options ( like the wallet, or how you can buy thing or go to other places, interact with the scenario in general and the little pop-ups/cutscenes ) is amazing and inovating, and the characters... *heart eyes* ... i swear that if B or N ( or whoever ) asked me to give them my soul, i would right away without thinking twice hsdjhd --

ok, ok, what i meant to say is that they're wonderful. B' story/past seems so interesting, as well the other characters'.

this game is number one not only in my fav games list, but in my heart as well :"""0 <3

sorry for the long comment !! :") and congrats for the sensational work !!!1


Wow this is such a kind comment, thank you so much! We're so glad that you enjoyed it <3

How do you save the game??

Sorry we saw this so late! You can find the save/load tab in the notebook!


Okeee thank you I love the game so far


So glad to hear that, thank you!


i played this last year and i always play it again because its never bored me, i enjoy it every time because all the characters are so sweet and the bg music just puts you in the mood. I cant wait for the full release... everything about this game is amazing. If you haven't played it yet, PLAY IT NOW -or you'll hit your toe on something hard or you'll step dog poop... 

This is so flattering, thank you very much edein! QuQ 


I'm so lucky I stumbled upon this gem! Finished the demo right now and I'm very excited for the release! Most definitely will be buying. I've already recommended this game I'm absolutely charmed! The art style is lovely and the game itself is intriguing, and the characters interesting and relatable. Good luck to the team!  And if you're reading this I recommend checking this game out for sure! 


We really appreciate you checking it out!  Thank you so much for the lovely words and recommendations — we'll do our very best to fulfill expectations! 💕


u guys will be naming the characters(A, B, C) ? Also lovede the demo <3


Why no? Sounds kind of interesting and unique xDDD

(1 edit)

that's pretty comum actually, normally they do this for people relate more easily to the characters (make u fell like you are A or C) ... but the characters have too much personality for that... (glad that is just a "feature")

Thanks for playing, we're so glad you liked it <3 The characters are purposely named after letters for story-ish(?) reasons!


oh i see, can't wait 4 the full release !!


i absolutely loved this game, its so pretty and everything just fits, the music , the visuals and the story go together perfectly

i was wondering who made the music, or if you know any songs/artist that sound somewhat the same bc i rly enjoyed the vibe of the music (especially the song that plays on the start screen)

thank you so much, it rly is a wonderful game and i hope to buy the full version in the future, stay safe <3


Aaa thank you so much for your lovely comment! The composer, who goes by AlwaysPolite, is one of two devs on the team (who also programs and writes!)

We can't really think of any one song or artist since we cover so many genres and have so many different inspirations.


alright, thank you! they did an awesome job , props to them

i'll stay on the lookout for your team's work :)))


oh man just finished the game :cries: awesome visual novel i will now start crying wow this is awesome 

So glad you ended up liking it! <3


is she actually a girl? other characters refer to her with masculine pronouns most of the time though she looks androgynous (no offense i am just very curious i have not finished the playthrough yet so if there are any reasons in the demo that i have not seen then oh no) 


No worries! B's a girl, but other characters upon first meeting her assume she's a man based off her appearance. She just never bothers to correct anyone ^^

oh thank you for clarifying! :)) I'm loving the game and art so much so far and I think I might be midways through it if not a little further,,,, thank you for this awesome interactive story 🤝

so I have been trying to play the game and for some reason after I unzip and go into the game my macOS says that its damaged and can't be opened and tells me to move it into the trash, i also tried overriding the security settings and it still say the same thing. i have no clue why this is happening

Hi Voltex! This is a known issue with the Mac version that we unfortunately can't do anything about, at least that we know of right now. Did you try the instructions found here?


That should bypass the problem. Let us know!

(1 edit)

Thank you so much for helping me, i followed through the article and it fixed the problem, now I am excited to play the game and again thank you so much!

We're glad it worked out! We hope you end up liking it after having to work around all that :>


Beautiful visuals and characters. Very aesthetic!!


We really appreciate the kind words merliah, thank you for playing! <3


this was such a cute and heart-warming story!! i really fell in love with the characters and art style :) keep it up <3


Thank you so much v0retherich, we're happy you liked it! ^u^


the art style is magnifying . This is like the best story game on the platform , really enjoying every second of this game . Here is my gameplay hope you enjoy :)


Oh my goodness this is extremely kind, thank you so much kelvinh! <'33 Thanks for playing, we're so glad you enjoyed it!

oh my I love the art style and the theme of this game! It's soooo beautiful!! I wonder if you guys have plans to translate this game into Chinese 'cause I am willing to help. Looking forward to the final release!

Wahh thank you method z!! We will keep you in mind when the game is ready for translation ^^

daamn bro , this was sooooo nice... it's really a shame that missed the kickstarter ... but im glad that i found this!!

Aaa thanks so much polpetone! QvQ

I found this game from the latest gameplay video on Twitter, decided to try the demo out, and I love it sooo much! Can I ask if you have a plan to release the game on another platforms in the future? I usually play games on Nintendo Switch so I really hoping that I will be able to play it on the Switch too!


Thank you very much doriachuu! At the moment we're not planning to release on Switch, but depending on how the reception is for the full game we'll definitely consider it!


this game is so relaxing, honestly. i like art style, story itself. can't wait to play full game!!


Thank you so much MRevial, you're too kind! <'3


This game is amazing, I love it, and I'm super excited for the full version, but there is no way you could ever convince me B is a girl.

Haha understandable; thank you so much Edible! ^^


This game is really something. Everything about it is top notch and shows just how much the devs care about it. The music, characters, and especially the art are all so memorable, and I am very much looking forward to playing the full release. However, there are two flaws I noticed. The first is that the game slows down drastically over time, though this can be temporarily fixed by switching between windowed and fullscreen modes. The second issue of much greater importance is that if the player clicks on Mao before the map tutorial appears, it will initiate both cutscenes at once and lock the player out of the map feature permanently, making further progression impossible without reloading an earlier save. Thankfully, the map is introduced not long after the first demo ends, so it doesn't take too long to get back if you save over your file without realizing what happened. Those quirks aside, the game is great. Keep up the good work.

Ah, thank you so much for both the extremely kind words, and for bringing those serious issues to our attention! The Mao issue should be a simple fix, but the slowing down over time is going to be more of a head scratcher as we optimize the full version. Again, we seriously appreciate your valuable input!


lmao i was thinking the main character is a male because it looks like a male  and if everyone disagrying me it s okay it s just a game afterall  any way you made  a very good work and yes i don t want to knew how much time  you took for it bu t it s took a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery  long time i think

We appreciate the comment, thank you so much, miratti! :)

well i have a questions why a b c and n   ?  is it justee like that you wanted that or...

Unfortunately, that'd be spoilers! (But there is a reason)

i have made a word like bacn but it s not making sence sow there will be othere characters whith like one world that the play don t knew  aha!


This game is so beautiful and amazing I cant wait to replay it with all the new updates and stuff. The story? Perfect. Art and animation? Brilliantly unique and beautiful. Characters? Diverse and so so so interesting. I cant wait to see where this game goes and I really hope you keep up the amazing work so we can continue to support this beautiful and unique game <3

Aaaa wow this is so sweet! Thank you so much, that means the world to us  <'33 We hope you'll like the full game just as much!


I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.

Thanks for reaching out to us Claudia! We actually have someone lined up for that very task at the moment, but we really appreciate the offer!

Don't worry.  :)


Honestly I don't tend to play many games with such a pretty art style since they never really catch my attention but I decided to give this a try a year back. I love the way the art style fits so perfectly with the writing and how interactive the overall gameplay is. I can't wait for the full release.

Thank you so much for the kind words nissaito, we're so happy you liked it! QvQ 


this is awesome! I really like this. I'll be definitely looking out for the release! I also really like the art as well :-]

Much appreciated, serenevin, we hope you'll like the full version as well! Thank you so much for the comment <3


hey! I stumbled upon your game by chance and my god what a discovery, it's so beautiful !! the graphic style, the ost, the characters and the writing ... everything is perfect, a thousand bravo to you, you can really be super proud of yourself :pray:

I could stay on the home menu to listen and vibrate with the music 

I admit that I am rather curious on how this game was made; most vns are made with renpy but twbd is much more complete than what is currently done. are you using unity or something like that?

thank you for reading this comment too long, I can't wait to see the full game, bon courage !

Thank you so much pomenarian, you don't know how much that means to us! We hope the full game lives up to expectations <3<3 Also, the game was made in GameMaker2 :D

Hey so I would really like to start the game , but the screen stays on the "Tomorrow Will be dying" Is there a certain button I have to click to play? Or something? id really like to know! 

Hey there, Karlee-llama, thanks for trying to play the game! That's strange -- the Start, Load, Settings and Quit buttons should show up below the logo after a bit. If they're not there even after reopening the game, let us know because that'd be a pretty dire glitch!

The game is great but I think it should be translated into other languages, like Portuguese and etc.

Ícone "Verificada pela comunidade"

Thanks BorbaAa <3 We'll see what we can do about translations when the full game is out!


Hello! I started to play your game on my channel. I missed out on the Kickstarter, which was a shame, but I really love the whole vibe of the game. The artstyle is really lovely and the music just fits perfectly. Not sure if I'll be able to play the full release, but I hope to see more from you guys! This game really is a gem.
