I have blood droplets on steam, i didn't know there was another one!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
XOXO Droplets is a free-to-play otome dating sim. There's an optional paid version that increases the amount of dateable guys and adds a some neat extra features.
The story begins when our nameable protagonist finally transfers into the boarding school of her dreams at the start of her junior year in high school. It would be perfect if it wasn't for that little catch attached to her enrollment: her parents will only let her keep attending the school for her remaining two years if she doesn't make everyone there hate her by shunning them, like she always does.
Do your best to show just enough interest in the other losers around to appease the folks while still having time to chase after all the attractive guys in the MC's afterschool group, which just so happens to be a group for chronically unfriendable people.
No, seriously folks. When we say the protagonist and main love interests are a big ol' jerk squad it's not a mistake and it's not an understatement.
- 3 distinct jerky main boyfriend options: Everett Gray, Nate Lawson, and Shiloh Fields
- 6 side characters who'll be your buddies and 6 minor clique boyfriend options, each with a bonus effect that makes the game easier
- Partial Voice acting for every significant character by a talented cast
- The option to break up with your bf and start dating someone else, if you feel like it
- A variety of methods to manage your Reputation with the unimportant students
- Part-time jobs, stores to visit, useful items, optional mini-games, an in-game phone to call a guy up and arrange a date at one of several different locations
- Over 130,000 words. Hundreds of different events, including a collage-style ending system where you get events for every goal you achieved during the game
- Cheat codes for those who don't give a f*ck about gameplay and just wanna see the events
Paid Extended Addition
- 3 more main jerk boyfriend options: Bae Pyoun, Jeremy King, and Pran Taylor
- 2 sweet but not-terribly-bright side boyfriend options: Kam Sung and Adrian Wulu
- Yet 1 more boyfriend option in the flirtations party boy Lucas Kaiser (New Addition!)
- 4 Extra Date Events for Everett, Nate, and Shiloh
- The ability to unlock all 4 CGs and 12 outfits for Everett, Nate, and Shiloh, rather than just 3 and 10
- The ability to unlock all 4 CGs and 12 outfits for Everett, Nate, and Shiloh, rather than just 3 and 10
- 50 more Random Events, 45 more Text Chats, 24 more Part-Time Work Events
- 320,000 words in total
- An accessory system that lets you decorate the main character with a variety of pieces, plus small events where characters comment on the accessories you wear
- The option to change the background of your cellphone to one of 12 different options
- Even better cheat codes
The game won't know you have the extension until you start a new file. After briefly starting the game you can then return to the main menu to change your phone background or what have you. If you have files from the free version of XOXO Droplets, those will work without issue. Again, you'll need to start a new file real quick, but then you can open up the load screen and pick up where you left off in the free version with all the extras now available.

How the hell do we get our MC to date a minor clique bf?? And can we date both a main bf AND a minor clique bf?
Also, fantastic game. Have fallen in love with all the jerks and MC is that bit of spice I've been missing in this genre XD
You can only have one BF at a time and here's how you get a minor BF:
To get a Clique Boyfriend you’ll need to get his Affection to max and meet a specific requirement. The requirement for each guy is-
Jason; Get the other nine members of his Clique to 100 Affection at least
Ralph; Unlock 5 date locations in one playthrough
Rex; Get all 7 Side Conversations with someone other than Adrian and Kam
Mateo; Have him at Max Affection, get to Level 3 in any part-time job
Davis; Have Nerds at 1,000 Reputation at least
Waldo; Have at least 200 Reputation Points with all six Cliques
If you’ve met both of those steps a pop up window will appear asking if you want to make the guy your boyfriend.
Glad you're enjoying it!
Hi hi! I am a trans guy and am very dysphoric about female pronouns, so is there any way to change the pronouns of the MC? Thanks!
I'm really sorry, this game doesn't have a customizable MC. It was made to be the story of a set character rather than a roleplaying experience where you feel like you are the main character. She has goals/priorities/an identity of her own and your part in the game is just trying to do well in the gameplay so that you can see all the scenes and don't lose.
Screw the person who down-voted your comment. Good question and good luck being you.
Hi! I recently downloaded your game and as I was playing to get Nate some error page kept popping up. I kept hitting ignore and the game would end the day and just continue but now the error page pops up each time I try to make Nate my boyfriend. Is there anyway to fix this? I even uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. It’s a great game and I would like to continue playing it but if it’s kinda hard if I can’t even get the guy’s to be my boyfriend.
I'm sorry you're having trouble! Can you let me know what the errors says? I'm not sure what it could be right now. Usually, players just get him as their boyfriend and nothing happens.
I haven't start playing the game I'm just waiting for it to finish downloading it I'm just scrolling through the comments and it's kinda funny seeing your name in the game which my name happens to be Shiloh ^^
Ima person who suffers from manic depression and when I was in Nate's route I was about cry when he said (spoilers!)
we are breaking up I lost a lot of people in my life even if this is a game it reminds me of things that happened to me but I guess he likes me more now after that I'm glad you guys are my Idol's GB patch u guys are such amazing devs ^^ <3
is it possible to play this on Android with an emulator like joiplay or netboom?
I am a massive fan of your game, Our Life, so i thought id check out your other games and i love this one as well! Your games are amazing and really cool!!
the games boyfriend feature does not work. everytime i check to see what kind of boy i can date, a full-screen pp up comes up and when i click 'ignore' it skips over the feature and goes to the next day! i would like to play, but id rather pay a game with most features in it, sorry.
The game won't let me close it ;-; i tried launching it but it didn't open so i decided to close it but when i tried to force close it and quit it it didn't let me
EDIT: I even uninstalled it and installed it again and it still doesn't work
After a while of messing around with things i found out how to open and close it when i open another window
The game is wonderful!!!!! Jeremy handsome and cute, I like him very much!
Even created a parallel universe in love with him!
Because I am a Chinese players found games this year, a few days ago to see sites found to stop selling peripheral, (although I prefer a gift bag of six wallpaper ha ha)
When blood DLC can out? ^ del ^)
The future will also be out XOXO series gift bag sales?
Thank you for playing! XOXO Blood Droplets will be out later this year, hopefully. And there might be extras that we sell eventually too.
Oh, great! I look forward to Jeremy! ! ! !
(my life ' ' ' 'Jeremy looks so fierce ah (> <))
I'm curious, ' 'my life' 'why do I have two mother? (+ _ +)?
Oh Jeremy's hair is difficult to draw > man"
I bought the XOD DLC cannot be opened on the desktop computer, but it can open my laptop. But the laptop is not my QAQ
(I can draw a picture of your game characters? QwQ)
I hope you see as soon as possible!
Hello! I'm sorry for the trouble. Can you let me know what you mean by it doesn't open? Does the game freeze, or there's a black screen, or nothing happens at all when you click to launch it? Or do you mean the DLC part is missing? And are you on Mac, Windows, or Linux?
Hey it's me 065jasmine. I tried to delete my account and had to recreate a new account. Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that this game you made is great and I am going to put it in my recommended playlist.
Thank you. My life is complete!
So I was wondering if it was okay with you if I write a fan fiction based on this game on a site called wattpad.com. If it's okay with you that would be great. If not I totally understand. Otherwise I love this game and keep it up!
Well after finishing Our Life I thought I'd give this game a try! I really enjoy what you do and I'll be glad to see more from you!
The first thing my eyes were drawn to was the name Shiloh. Our life made a huge impact on me! Cant wait to get the DLC's and the Step 4 update! Your games are amazing and i cant help but fall in love with them! From the story to the scenery everything is beautifully made and i can see how much you care about the game and its players! Thank you for creating such master pieces!~
I actually came here from 'Our Life' and I have one thing to say
I new I recognized that face! Other than that, I LOVE this game. It's funny, its cute, it's amazing, Shiloh
(I might slightly like the character more than I should, he's adorable) Over all, the game is amazing!
Your games are really fun to play and the art is really good- Its really wonderful!
Aw, thank you so much for giving this game a try too. I'm happy you enjoyed it, and Shiloh, haha!
hi i just want to say i love bae pyoun with all my soul and he can take it if he wants to
Haha, I'm very glad you enjoyed him and I'm sure he'd appreciate having your soul veeerry much.
Hey, playing free version on steam, played through Everett first and was working on Shiloh, got to February second year and game crashes on the Monday when loading the screen for picking were to sit. Windows error just says game stopped responding. Loading an older save seems fine but haven't yet gotten up to that point again. Love the game totally considering paying for the full so I can date Adrian!
Update: Error Accurred again on June 1st again on a monday morning, I tried validating game file on steam and it found errors in a few file and updated, but after trying to reload the *broke save* the Error still happened.
Hey! I'm really sorry you're getting an error. Thanks for telling us what was going on. I've heard of the game randomly freezing, but I don't remember an error report problem happening so I'm not entirely sure what's going on. We'll try to look into it soon though unfortunately our programmer is busy preparing for the release our of current project, Our Life, so results might be slow.
I've just been saving every weekend in a different save slot. When the crash happens it will freeze the game, Windows pop-up says game has stopping responding and asks if you would like to close the game or wait. Then when reloading the most recent save (the Saturday) the problem will keep happening on the Monday. I did get to finish Shiloh's, it was a bit weird though replaying it after the first crash happened, I used skip for most of it but as I got closer to the part where the game crashed it wouldn't skip anymore. As if the game thought I hadn't played that part. Loving the game and will definitely be buying the full version 30 hours so far on just the free version so totally worth it. Will just keep saving it in atleast 3 slots incase the crash happens again. 👍
Long story short? AWESOME GAME. I never expected myself to like this game this much oh god... And here I am after finishing Nate's route.
At first I didn't like the game that much bc JB felt like such a jerk and interested in boys 100/7... But oh boy you grow to adore her. She's so fun and humorous, always knows how to lighten the mood. And the random moments with jb and her bf is so cute
y'all have to check out nate trying to break up with jb because he was three minutes late and "doesn't deserve to be anyone's boyfriend"
The game system is pretty cool too! At first I was pretty overwhelmed because it seemed like there were too many but you get used to it and it's pretty cool! Same applies to the random events/choice over which clique reputation to gain n lose which happen once a day- it makes the game more realistic.
If I have to give criticism hmm... I'm not sure if this is because I played the free version but I think we can definitely use some more random events. To me they seemed too rare, but it's just my personal opinion. And maybe this is because I lacked affection for other characters but I would (again, personally) prefer everybody from the club bonding a bit more and having a nice fluff scene at the end.
But seriously, overall, this is amazing! Thanks for blessing my life (and others) with this. Soundless support to yall until the day comes when I can buy games online :)
Aw, thank you so much for the kind comment! It's really great to hear you had a good time with the game and that JB grew on you, haha.
I remember playing tis from steam ad i loved it. I though it was funny all around and amazing.
is there nsfw scenes too or no?
Nope, it just has crude humor and a lot of swearing. There's no mature content in terms of violence or explicit sexual scenes.
bruh that moment youve played xoxo blood droplets and then come across this, i was so confused at first when scrolling through games, once i saw the tittle i immediately clicked recognizing the characters lol
Haha, sorry for the confusion! XOXO Blood Droplets is a indeed a spin-off of this original game. There's a lot of neat references between the two. But they can both be played as stand-alone games as well.
I wonder what does minor clique boyfriend options actually mean?
Those are just another gameplay feature. Winning over a clique guy to be your boyfriend doesn't get new events, it gives gameplay perks like always being in good standing with the other cliques.
i'm absolutely addicted with this game! i found it a while back but it didn't download so i gave up on it, but i'm so glad i came back!! you never fail with these games!! my favorite is everett, he's an absolute heartthrob to me, and i hype SO much over him, which just means my taste in guys is bizarre. i also love jeremy, such a cutie!! i love this jerk squad :)
Aw, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! Haha, Everett and Jeremy are cute little punks, good choices. Thank you for the kind message <3
aww no romantic route for Lynn :( He is so beautiful😩
I'm sorry, he just is not interested in that MC, haha. He has a thing for Shiloh's mom. But his friendship events are still really fun ^^.
its a shame to hear that people ( especially everett ) calls bae an antichrist, i mean, like, doesn't he get offended? :P
Haha, nah. Bae enjoys watching others act childishly. It's amusing and makes him feel so much more grownup.
wow, thats kinda weird but it really suits him, he does likes being all mature and stuff, even if he eats a whole jar of cherry's with a fork XD
Yeah. He's not very self-reflective, haha. What a guy.
haha yeah XD i dont know why he is my favorite, he just is. i just imagine him in real life, that would be so cool and weird, sorry i talk too much, i never really had a conversation like this before <3
I think I have encountered a bug, it won't allow me to continue past February 7th during the second year. I would appreciate it if it was fixed soon. I am very into this game and I would like to be able to progress further as soon as possible. Thanks.
I'm sorry you're having trouble! I'm not sure what might be the issue right now, I'm afraid. Could you give more details? Does the game freeze, crash, does the day keep repeating, are any errors reported by the game? Do you have other saves files you could try continuing with? It might be an issue with just that one file. Let me know and we'll do our best to help you progress past it!
The game freezes and I am unable to continue that save no matter how many times I reload it.
Okay, we'll look into that! It could be an issue with just that save being corrupted. If there's any other file you have, it might work out better to play those instead of the one that keeps freezing.
I tried playing the steam version as well and I did a new file and it;s still freezing on me. Hopefully this information I've provided helps. Thanks.
I'm so sorry about that! Over the years we've heard of people losing a single file because something went wrong with it, but we haven't encountered an issue where someone always ran into that kind of game breaking issue. We'll do what we can to figure something out, but I'm not sure what I can suggest for you right now, other than potentially playing on a different computer. Also, could you let us know which guy you were pursuing? Was it the same one each time or different boys?
Any chance this could be released on Android?
Thank you for the interest! Well, the gameplay features wouldn't translate well to a smaller screen and we'd have to rework the entire thing. But we are planning on releasing a version of the game with no gameplay elements (a true Visual Novel version) so that build might eventually go up on Android. We'll have to wait and see, though.
I played this game years ago and I recently found it again and it's still amazing lol. I LOVE the jerky MC and all of the characters' personalities and quirks, and the game has so much chaotic energy and is exactly my type of humor. my personal favorite is Shiloh, I'm obsessed with that little freckled brat :* anywayyy definitely considering getting the paid version soon, good job with the game! +_+
Aw, thank you very much for all the kind words! It's nice to hear it was fun back then and it's still fun now :D. Haha, Shiloh is a piece of work, you're very brave for tolerating him. If you do get the paid versions, I hope you'll like the other boys just as much as the free options.
um does the game have a conclusion because year two has repeated itself several times and I'm having loops of the same events
The game is meant to end in August of Year 2. Something is definitely wrong with the save file if it skipped passed the ending scenes and just continued with the normal gemplay. Unfortunately, I don't know what that might be. I've never heard of this happening before. For now all I can suggest is loading a different file that's set a ways before the game is meant to end (Aug Yr. 2) and/or deleting the game then redownloading it in case something went wrong with processing the game file itself. We'll have the programmer look into possible causes for the error in the meantime. Thanks for letting us know about your problem!
I've been looking for this for ages but I can't find it. Whats the middle button in the phone (the pink one) for?
If you go see Cala on a Saturday or Sunday while shopping you can have her change your luck. That section on the phone tells you your current luck status buff and how much longer the effect is going to last c:
I bought the paid extended version and it wont let me access the accessory store and for Prans route it wont let me go on the third dates with him (finished the route with Jeremy and i love him so much)
Thank you for getting the game! To access the accessory store to buy stuff you first have to work at the accessory store part-time on the weekend. And to get the third dates with Pran he needs to be your official boyfriend. You do that by reaching the two heart affection bar and filling it up completely. Then you can open the date screen and there will be a new button in the bottom right corner. That will let you ask him to be your boyfriend. I hope that helps ^^
i loved playing this game !! <33
the only think i dont really like though is how some of the features you have to pay for, like you can only unlock 3 cgs for everett, shiloh, and nate.
really wish there was more in the free version.
good game nonetheless !!
Hello I am playing the Shiloh route however everytime i go to ask him to be emy bf it crashes
I'm really sorry about that! Can you email us what the error says, if any info pops up? Or can you give me more details on what type of crashing it is (does the game freeze, does it go black, does the window just close)? I'm not sure what the problem could be right now.

Do you plan on doing a soundtrack? Or have you already? I've not found it if you have. I'm in love with most of the songs, and would be awesome to have them. I've listened to the spring and winter tunes non stop on YouTube.
We haven't put it out yet, but we do plan on it! Feel free to follow us on itch.io or one of our other pages (https://gb-patch.tumblr.com/fip). We'll make an announce when it's available and also when there are giveaways. We're currently planning on a little giveaway where everyone who participates can get the soundtrack. I'm happy you enjoy them so much ^^.
Love this game,already played an hour of it. Defintly going to get the paid version! a few gripes I wish you could change your MC's Hair or skin color...also put more of your personality into her,woth options. Otherwise it's really good! Pran and Bae are My Faves even though they are the hardest to gain affection for :/ I also didn't know Lynn was a Guy until My Character said he lol He has a very feminine voice. imo.
Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. I hope you'll enjoy the full routes. Haha, yeah, Lynn is not especially masculine.
I love this game so much. Thank you for blessing the world with this and specifically with Shiloh (though his existence may be more of a curse). When I finally get money and stop being a degenerate loser, I will throw so much freaking cash at this game. I love it. Thanks for making it.
Thanks for letting us know! We'll get that issue removed. You can do all of Everett's content without using the Guy List, so you will still be able to keep going through the game and finish his route. Just don't open that page for now, aha.
Oh no, I'm so sorry about that. We'll be sure to go over what happened there and get it fixed!
We've been trying, but the problem is that you're getting an error because of something that isn't there in the code. On our ends we do have that code and we can't replicate the error. Maybe something went wrong specifically with your download of the game. You could try deleting the game, reloading it, and starting a new file. I know that'd be quite inconvenient, but I'm not sure there's any other way to get your game to notice the code that's already there. I'm sorry about this!
i'm sorry if this is dumb but how do i download it? i don't see the downloads anywhere;; i went on the paid version and there was downloads there so i was confused when i noticed that there wasn't any options to download here;; im sorry if i bothered you;
