can't wait for the dlc in october!!
XOXO Blood Droplets
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
A collection of very short stories. XOXO Blood Droplets is an absurd, dark comedy, twisted romance Visual Novel about terrible things happening to terrible people. The fun comes not from avoiding the potential horrors, but by seeing just how many ways things can go wrong.
Rating: 18+ (swearing, violence, disturbing themes)
JB has been attending the fancy boarding school Saint Sara Belle for almost a year now. Along with six other students, she’s forced to join an after-school group created for those that are deemed ‘unfriendable’. JB is fine with that, especially because one of the awful people there is her special someone. Well maybe.
As much as JB is fixated on her chosen suitor at the start of the tale, the guy may not be worth the great deal of trouble it'll take to actually be with him. The amount of ridiculous, winding ways the story can unfold is frightening. All you can count on for sure is that it will be crazy.
♡ 3 Insane Suitors- Jeremy King, Bae Pyoun, and Everett Gray
♡ 3 Separate Storylines
♡ 50,000 words
♡ 42 Endings!- Some of them are actually okay. Most are not
♡ 18 CGs + a unique image to collect for every ending

There will be an optional DLC released in the future to make even more stories and "romantic" partners available.

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~

I'm really happy you enjoy it! We're trying our best to finish up the DLC. I'm sorry the font is hard for you to read. We'll look into changing that.
this game is so fantastic lol i would pay any amount for the dlc!! so excited for pran lol
Haha, thank you very much! I'm really happy to hear you're looking forward to it. We do have the beta available through our Patreon with five more routes included, one of which is a Pran story. If Patreon isn't your thing, no problem. We're working on getting the DLC out everywhere as soon as we can.
this game is amazing!!!! i love the characters! bae is my fav :3 i have a quetion, we have to pay for the full version of xoxo blood droplets right? btw i made dis art of everett, i hope you like it:
That is so cute! Thank you for sharing it with us <3.
And yeah, the DLC for XOXO Blood Droplets will be paid content.
yeah no prob XD this took me literally 1 hour but it was worth it!
oh, and thanks for letting me know that is paid content, i was confused for a second, and please make more of these games, i really like your creations like xoxo droplets, lake of voices and floret bond, i think they are sooooooo cool! im gonna share this game to all my friends <3 and btw whats that theme that plays when you meet bae for the first time in xoxo blood droplets?
Aw, that's really great to hear! We're so glad you like our various projects :D.
If you mean during the group meeting, that's the happy song. If you mean the song that plays when you meet Bae in the entryway that's "Bae's Theme", haha.
cool! i will always support your projects and upcoming games!
and thanks about bae's theme, its because i wanted to download it but i cant find it anywhere. (btw i lovee all the soundtracks in the game, like the one that plays when your on the school map)
Heya! Any updates on the dlc? I can't seem to find any on the development log, or recently on the twitter!
We're still working on it! We release new content for our Patreon supporters and Kickstarter backers each month, but we sometimes forget to advertise the game on our public social media since it's technically "released". Our hope is to get it out in spring of 2020. Thank you for waiting and I'm glad you're still interested in it.
I haven't finished this game yet but I seriously love it
(also im totally gay for Chand lol)
haha! I was here early so as a result I got the demo version. I was trying to get all the endings but that flopped, obviously. I came back and now it's back up! I've been playing for a while hitting up all the endings (メ▼ー▼)/●~* I'm really glad I came back to check. I love your content!!
Wow, this was so much fun! It was a perfect mixture of cute, horrible and funny all at once! The comedy especially had me wheezing with laughter a bunch of times.
I particularly love the mechanic that allows you to leave the guy you chose if you want to. It is so refreshing, especially considering how... difficult(?) some of the guys are. And even though they are intentionally absurd and insane, I felt they were more genuine than many of the yandere I've seen in other games, especially in the Otome genre.
I had just finished playing the original XOXO Droplets, and it was really nice seeing all the little references. My favorite guys from both games are Everett and Nate, haha, but all of them are great. I'm looking forward to seeing more of them in the commercial version! :-)
Aw, thank you so much for the kind comment! I'm really happy you enjoyed the even nuttier versions of the boys, haha. And yeah, we definitely didn't want to force people to stay with these squares considering how far they push the line.
Hi. I had been following progress on this game since the last year when i first played the demo and I have to say that I really liked everything about it before and I like it even better now that it's finished. The only question I have is whether the demo is still available somewhere or is this it?
Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it :D.
The demo was removed because it's too out-dated and won't work with the current build. I'm sorry for that.
Streamed a bit of this game just recently, and wow!
I like this game a lot so far; I really plan on sitting down and streaming for a bit more later... Just to get all the endings I can get!
I might've been a bit critical about the music, but to be honest that's the only real critique I have for this game... that, & there were some instances of grammatical errors, but really what visual novel doesn't have that happen?
It's cute, mysterious, funny, and weird all wrapped up in a convenient/easy to play point-and-click visual novel format!~ <3
Thank you very much for going through it! I'm happy you had fun with it on the whole C:. Hopefully the rest of the endings will be a good time as well.
Jeremy is such a cutie. >_<
Absolutely love this! Continue creating good games and looking for the game "Our Life: Beginnings and Always"!!!
Jeremy is such a cutie and can't wait to draw him =D
Thanks very much ^^! It's nice to hear you like our others game. If you do draw Jeremy, I'd love to see it.
How much will the DLC be when it comes out?
I love all of this and need to know how much I'll be spending so I can add it to my budget.
Absolutely love this game
this is coming out today right?
Yep :]. Well just the free version. A paid DLC will be coming out later.
My best boy is Shiloh <3
(tried to upload a image but it didn't work , if you know how please let me know ^^
Haha, he's an interesting one.
I'm not sure why it didn't work :0. It seems like you can insert images. Maybe the format of the file wasn't compatible?
Pran is my bae <3
I made an account just so i could say how much i absolutely love this game!
The art style is adorable, the writing is hilarious, and the whole idea is an awesome XOD spinoff.
Thankyou for giving one of my favourite otomes a game like this qwq.
(also jeremy is best boi, forever and always)
Aw, thank you so much! It's really great to hear you like this nutty spin-off so much, haha.
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 --
Thank you c:. I'm glad the download was easy for you and I hope you'll enjoy the demo!
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.
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~
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❤!
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
Aw the art style is so cute. It is a good game so far.
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!
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 :>.
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.
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.
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)
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!
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.
I love this game!
