A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Love. Kill. Try not to die. Probably die anyway.

XOXO Blood Droplets is a cute, comedic, and creepy Visual Novel. The goal is to somehow romance a murderous boy without having the crazy dudes you didn't pick (or even the one you did) end your life. It doesn't tend to go well. In fact, usually it's pretty horrific.

Current Demo: 20,000 words, 8 'to be continued' conclusions, 13 Bad Endings

Rating: 16+ (swearing, violence, disturbing themes)


               


JB has been attending the fancy boarding school Saint Sara Belle for almost a year now. Along with six others, she’s forced to join an after-school group created for students that are deemed ‘unfriendable’. JB is fine with that, especially ‘cause one of the awful people there is her special someone. It doesn’t matter that he has trouble getting along with people and is a murderer; he’s still perfect to her!

Well maybe.

No matter how many sparkly hearts consume her vision at the beginning, anything can happen in this place. The amount of twisted, winding ways the story can unfold is frightening. All you can count on for sure is that it will be crazy.

  • 6 Insane Suitors
  • 18 Storylines
  • 70 CG images
  • 150 Endings!
  • Determine your conclusion by making many painful choices
  • Solve your problems with the MC’s charisma or just through violence

(Voice acting will be added in later builds of the demo.)

XOBD is a spin-off to a lighthearted dating sim. The previously harmless romance guys are now exceedingly dangerous, but the protagonist is still quite fond of them and their insane ways. You do not have to play the OG XOXO Droplets for this game to make sense. Feel free to enjoy it as a stand alone story.

Thank you for checking this out ❤

And if you like horror Visual Novels feel free to check out the one we've already completed, Lake of Voices! It's free~

Aaaaahhhh! Shiloh is SO CUTE! I wish his route had more to it!

Thank you! I'm glad you think so. Hopefully you'll like the rest of his content in the full version :D

I love this game so much!!! I do have a few questions though :0 Sorry if there were obvious answers that I didn't see anywhere. I was wondering if this game was going to stay in the same artstyle as the demo (which I do love!!!) and if this game was going to be completely free to play or free to play like the other xoxo drops games were. Thank you so much for the wonderful content!

Thank you so much for the kind words! The game is gonna keep the art style it has in the demo. There are 18 storylines, a few will be totally free to play while most will require buying a commercial version :].

I love this about as much as the non-spin off version. The art style is adorable, the writing is witty, and (my favorite part) The soundtrack! So I have to ask, did you guys make the soundtrack? and if so,  will you ever have a downloadable or pay for version of it?

But overall, I love this game, and of course the non-spin off version is also amazing! Keep up the good work guys!

Aw. thank you so much! I'm glad you like both versions. We did have a musician create the tracks specifically for this game and plan to make the soundtrack available eventually. It'll be some time after October, though. Right now there's a way to get the XOD soundtrack for free. It doesn't have the extra spooky tracks, but does have additional seasonal tracks that aren't in XOBD.

This looks really good! And wow, it downloaded surprisingly fast for me. My computer is kinda slow. I'll update this game after i play through the demo, here we go --

(+1)

Thank you c:. I'm glad the download was easy for you and I hope you'll enjoy the demo!

it was really cool! I loved meeting all the different characters with their uh, unique personalities. I can't wait to see how it turns out ! :>

(+1)

Aw, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it! Thank you for giving it a try :>

I'm sorry I'm having trouble downloading the demo. It always fails and for some it keeps saying the file is "forbidden". Do you have some other link or any other way  for me to download t??

I'm sorry. That's a weird thing that happens with Itch.io sometimes. Unfortunately there's no other way to download the demo right now. I can suggest; resetting your interest connection, using a different browser to download it, waiting until tomorrow, and/or installing the Itch.io App and downloading the demo through there (https://itch.io/app). I hope one of those works for you!

I've always loved the original XOXO Droplets I loved the characters, the humor, the art. And I just can't wait to see how this turns out, cause this has a lot of potential to be really great. I really can't wait to see how their original personalities can be warped in a creepy way. I have a couple of questions though:

1.) Do you know when the game is coming out

2.) Is the art style gonna be updated to look like the original game? Not that I mind, the chibi character designs really add to the cutesy-creepy type of vibe.

Thank you! I'm really glad you like the first one and enjoy this one too c:.

1. It'll come out in October 2019~

2. More art will be added and some will be improved, though the style itself won't change. We wanted to go for a different look from the original this time around.

I used to play this game, but had too delete it for space. It's been a ffew months, and I decided to re-download it. How could I not? It's so cute and fun. My favorite is Jeremy. He's so cute and relatable.

Thank you ^^! I'm glad it's fun for you. And agreed, Jeremy is a good one.

I really enjoyed the demo and the adorable art style. I've managed to discover all the bad endings so far and can't wait for the rest of the game~

Thank you very much! I'm glad you had a good time :D

Without really meaning to, since I didn't play the non-spin off version, I've spent the past two or so hours on this demo and I loved every bit of it. Yes to more silly yandere boys. I'm really curious how the MC's decreasing affection would come into play in the future too!
I feel like she might eventually get tired of dealing with a boyfriend the same way she might deal with a bomb lol.

Thank you! I'm happy to hear the game is still fun for those who haven't played the other version. Haha, she certainly can get sick of their insane shenanigans. They're such troublemakers.

My comment from like 5 months ago:

Even though this was a demo, THIS GAME IS FREAKING AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I LITERALLY SPENT 2 HOURS ON THE GAME TO TRY AND FIND ALL POSSIBLE ENDINGS (sadly I haven't found the '#1' ending yet but, I'm still committed)

My new comment:

I still love this game but, I feel like I should of been keeping up with it because after re-playing it, I couldn't for the love of me  find prolougue endings #6 or #7 on top of this, I don't know anything about the storylines's #7 and #11 (since they, unlike the others, that have "#1 Coming Soon") have options but luckily,  I'll be restarting the entire game (deleting save points, virtually erasing my memory, etc.) as soon as the new update comes out, sending positivity❤!

(+1)

Aw! Thank you so much. It's really nice to hear that you enjoyed the demo ^^!

Haha, yeah, the new demo can cause some confusion if you played the original one. Starting a new file will probably help some! As a hint, Prologue Ending 6 happens without any of the main boy, so perhaps try not going along with them. Ending 7 is actually a mistake, aha. I didn't know there was a Prologue Ending 7 listed, but it shouldn't be there. I'm sorry about the confusion for that.

im always looking forward to updates on XOBD XD this game is amazing !! keep up the good work! ^ ^ i say this but all your games are bloody awesome~

I'd love to see yuri romance/dating sim game made by you

(+1)

Thank you! We are hoping to have games with more female LIs in the future :].

Aw the art style is so cute. It is a good game so far.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

I like this game a lot! The array of characters with different (but still insane) personalities is really fun. I appreciate the work you're putting into this game,  it's really looking great. I can't wait for it to be released!

Thank you so much! I'm happy to hear you had fun with it. We'll do our best to get it done before the end of the year :>

This game isn't my cup of tea, but I do like it. For me, I'm more focused and used to games that have cheesy, witty, romances (like the original XOXO droplets game for example). Although this game isn't one of my favorites, I do like it and wish you best of luck on it! 

Sincerely, Sugar~

Thank you for giving it a try even though it's not really your thing!

I love this game so much! It's probably my most favorite visual novel now, Shiloh is a smol little bean ;^;

Aaw, thank you so much! It's great to hear you enjoy it that much and I'm glad you like the sneaky, freckle boy :>.

(+1)(-1)

Hey, I'm sure this game has potential and it seems people enjoy it, and that's great! I'm personally not a big fan of the characters or artstyle, it seems like it's trying a bit too hard to pander to a certain audience- but hey, what do I know? I'm sure people will enjoy this game, so keep developing it!

-Best of luck, Chey.

(+3)

Thanks for giving a try! No worries that it's not your thing. Though, the notion that the XOD series is pandering at all just simply isn't something that's true. The original XOXO Droplets was a game no one asked for and to this day receives a lot of resistance. But we made it anyways and were lucky enough to find people who gave it a try and enjoyed it. After developing an audience who hoped for a real sequel, we instead came out with this: yet another game no one was asking for, including our own fans. We just do whatever we like here, haha.

(1 edit)

Oh, thanks for clearing that up! I guess it just reminds me of some other games and stories that focused too much on audience. My bad if I seemed discrediting, I didn't mean to come off that way. I'm sure lots of work and original ideas went into this project; I also did not know there was an original that already had a fanbase-once again-, my bad. I probably should've done more research. I apologize if I seemed accusatory, that was not my intention, aha. Again, I wish you the best of luck in development, I'm sure people will love it!

It's alright! XOBD isn't exactly a timeless story. If you don't know our company it's understandable that it might seem like it must exist for a specific niche. But, in the end, it's for our personal amusement in a way that's meant to not follow through with the hopes of people who follow us. Not only is it a wide margin off from what people had been looking for from this series, we released another game called Lake of Voices which a horror-tragedy where every death is miserable/heartbreaking. A lot of fans of that were asking for a new horror game from us, while others were waiting for that original XOXO Droplets sequel. And XOXO Blood Droplets is what happened; a game where everyone's favorite XOD characters are insane and where dying is entertainment instead of emotional. Tonal whiplash and the unexpected is what we're about, haha. Thanks again for playing the demo. Not everyone is into the same stuff, but we wouldn't get anywhere without people at least giving our games a try. Perhaps Lake of Voices would be more enjoyable for you. The artstyle is much more detailed and the characters are far more down-to-earth.

I'll try it out sometime,  thank you so much!

(+1)

No problem! Thank you. I hope you'll like it :>

Dumb question on the Kickstarter, if you do the $20 pledge, it says Est delivery Oct next year, but would that include the Steam key for XOXO extended, or do people get that part earlier? (Trying to decide if I am patient enough if it is later or just buy the XOXO Extended now, or if it's an earlier/easier to wait for thing, basically. xD)

(+1)

You'll get the XOXO Droplets key right away, haha. It'll only be the XOXO Blood Droplets stuff that you'll have to wait for. Thank you for taking an interest in our games!

Yes

(+1)

this is so weird, my little angel bean Shiloh acting like this right off the bat, but you know what? I'm living for it. Also, he unintentionally said my username.

(+1)

Haha, that's a fun coincidence. I hope you continue to enjoy Shi in this game. He's a bit of a cad.

(+1)

WARNING THIS GAME IS FOR Misunderstood TEENS, Nerds going through a weird time in their mid 20s & Parents who pretend not to like this stuff ONLY! ;) tehe. 

I love this game!

Thank you so much for checking the game out! I'm glad you liked it ^^

My Playthrough :D

(+1)

Thank you for checking out the demo!

The first game is so fun!!!

I'll pledge the spin-off on Kickstarter for sure  :)

Thank you so much ^^!

I thought this was a cute game. I loved  a lot of the remarks MC made. The comedy was really witty in this visual novel. Now i'm going to have to play the original droplets to see what's in store with that!

Thank you very much! I'm really glad you thought it was funny.

Just started it, but its right up my alley, love it already!

Haha, thank you very much for making a let's play! I'm glad you're getting a kick out it.

(1 edit) (+1)

When the game's story and dialogue started, I WAS IN LOVE!!! I love how the original game ties into this one! Like, you wouldn't get confused when references come up because it doesn't seem like they were just thrown in there with no background. The prologue, guide, and how the characters are presented give a great general idea of their personality/reputation. The story line is amazing and the endings/results had me shook. The cutsie art style of the game is perfect and well done! I can tell this game has potential and I WILL DEFINITELY buy it when it's done! PLEASE keep working on this game!!! :D

(I had to clear somethings up and disscuss more factors in the game <3<3<3)

(+1)

Haha, I'm so glad to hear that! I was worried if the game might not have a good balance of being approachable to new players, while having fun nods for those who knew the original. Thank you very much for the very kind comment. We'll be sure to keep working on this game and get it out there!

Just played the demo and I LOVED IT! Seeing this strange side in each character is really entertaining and i can happy say ill be waiting for any updates and the full release. I wish you guys all the best off luck! <3 

Aaw, thank you so much! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy the crazy versions of these boys, haha. We'll do our best to get the game finished and released as soon as we can!

(+1)

Is it just me or is Shiloh acting like Monika?

Haha, I suppose in some ways they're two of a kind.

Hi! I really enjoyed the previous game, Jerebear lol, and I was wondering if there was an approximate release date for this game and the what the estimated cost of the full version would be. Thank you for your time!

(1 edit)

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the original XOD game ^^. XOXO Blood Droplets is scheduled to come out in 2019. The price will be around 10+ USD.

How Much Ending and Route have this Demo Help Thanks I want to record All Route in this Demo

There are two routes, Pran and Nate, plus an option to not be interested in any of the choose-able options. There are 8 bad endings and 3 'to be counted' conclusions. If you click the Extras button on the main menu there's an Ending list, which will keep track of all the endings you've gotten in the demo. Good luck!

I'll try to play the demo now! :D

Thank you! I hope you'll like it C:

My last video! I'll go through everyone else by myself.

Looking forward to this~

Thank you for playing the demo and sharing your experience! I'm glad you're looking forward to it :D

wow this game is amazing thank for making it fun :D

and good luck !!!

Thank you very much! It's great to hear that you enjoyed it C:

Loved the game. The dark humor was great. Can't wait for the full game. How do I get the last ending with Nate?

(1 edit)

Thank you so much! I'm happy you enjoyed the humor :>. Here's a walkthrough for Nate's demo events~

-Tell Shiloh that you're busy

-Go to the hallway when on the map screen

-Tell Nate you were looking for him

-Say 'We're leaving!' to Waldo (telling Nate he's right will give you an ending)

-Wait for the timer to run out when JB considers giving up (choosing to go chill will give you an ending)

-The final choice is whether or not you'll accept Bae's earrings. Accepting them will give you an ending, rejecting them will get a 'to be continued' scene

I hope that helps!

Thank you.

It's no trouble!

This is... Amazing. I'll definitely play the full game. I love how exaggerated the characters are (I know because I played the original game) and how crazy this is X)

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoy their exaggerated versions after knowing how they are in the original. I hope you'll enjoy the finished game as well~

It's going to get crazier from here; I know it.

Thanks for sharing those here! 

Haha, I'm glad you seem to be having a good time. And yeah, things only get crazier the further they go on.

Totally forgot to post these!

I love it! specially how their personalities are intensified to the extreme! XD But dang! just two days seem crazy in their world, it's a true wonder how JB managed to stay alive and 'sane' (well enough) for a whole year.

Haha, thank you! JB has certainly been very lucky. But I guess she's not the only one who's gotten impatient recently.

It's beautiful :') ..i really loved the yandere vibe & seeing the jerk-squad  from this perspective made me fall in love all over again i can't wait for the full game to come out XD 

Thank you! Haha, we're glad you had fun with the crazy version of those jerks. We'll do out best to get the full version out soon!

cute

Thank you :D!
