What was this made in?
A downloadable game for Windows
Jett Sherazi is captain of the Nightingale, which – despite the fancy name – is an ordinary cargo spaceship. During a not-so-routine mission to deliver supplies for the human navy, Jett finds an alien named Toa hiding in the Nightingale's cargo hold – and aliens are at war with humans! He pursues Toa into a nearby escape shuttle…which they launch and crash-land on a nearby planet. Great.
Unable to bring himself to hurt Toa, Jett reluctantly decides to travel with the stowaway until they can find a way to get back up in space. As they explore together, Jett discovers that his tranquil companion isn't so different from a human after all. But why did Toa sneak onboard the Nightingale…?
Four Eyes is a story-heavy, sci-fi/romcom adventure game about a spaceship captain and a narcoleptic alien stranded on an unfamiliar planet. The demo was developed as an entry for Yaoi Jam 2016.

RPG Maker VX Ace
any news of an RPG Maker MV port?
Nope. All my scripts and tiles are designed to work with VX Ace, not MV, so it'd be a huge undertaking to rework or replace everything. Also, MV doesn't scale properly to my computer screen, so I can barely read any of the text in it, and the maps look just tiny. I've tried solutions for this but none seem to work. I think the game still turned out nicely in VX Ace (though it's a shame I can't publish for Mac) and will be keeping it that way for the foreseeable future.
Well I could help with porting it over to MV if you'd like to do that?
I'll think about it! Thanks for the offer.
You're welcome. I already have MV and as well as a scaler that will scale the images to MV standards.
So do you think it's possible? Or do you need to think on it more?
Oh my god, that was the most adorable bl game ever. Thank you and I love you. =D
are you going to make a whole game of this? Would love for that! Love this demo already! Ive played it 3 times! (ive only ever got the normal ending though)
This is the whole game, haha! It's my first release, so that's why it's pretty short. :) I'm super glad to hear that you enjoyed it, though!! There's always the possibility that I'll make another game in this universe.
If you'd like to see the secret ending, there are instructions for it in the walkthrough, which is linked in the description up there!
nuuuuu y just for windows T____T macs get no love :( oh well...
It's unfortunately something I have zero control over! RPG Maker VX Ace won't let you export Mac packages. :( In the future I hope to have Mac-compatible games available.
Is this the full version or demo???
oh my god i absolutely loved this game!!! i played the demo before and i'm so so happy you made a full version!!! this game made me really happy. I loved the plot, the characters (Jett, and Toa, and of course Irene!), the visuals, the feature where you can switch between characters, using Toa's Gift...aaahhhh it was just all so good and i love it! (plus i was having a rough day and this made it x100 better) <3
This comment is so sweet!! I'm so happy that my game was able to cheer you up on a rough day! Take care. <3
OH MAN OH MAN, I finally had a chance to play the full version and it was SO SWEET???? Like I loved Jett's personality and Toa is SUUCCHH a sweety. And the way their characters bounced off of each other and just WORKED together really well was AAAHH <3 <3 <3. I thought the romance between them felt super natural and I could see why the two of them wanted to keep going on adventures together. AND IRENE. I loved her wit, and I also really appreciated that she was supportive of Jett and Toa while also being her own character in her own right. AND THEN HOW THE PLOT RESOLVED ITSELF- I just really loved everything about this game, it was really nice and lovely. I actually drew some fanart;;; https://68.media.tumblr.com/0140e7af5197d1383f3da415fc942dcf/tumblr_olv9uxYU9Z1rdigkno1_1280.png Thank you so so much for making such a lovely game and I'm eagerly looking forward to anything else you make!!
DFJHGJFDGDFJGD OMG SO THIS WAS THE GREATEST SURPRISE TO WAKE UP TO????? YOUR FANART IS SO BEAUTIFUL OH MY GOSH I'M KINDA DYING OVER TOA'S EXPRESSION AND THE WONDERFUL LIGHTING <3 <3 <3 IS IT OKAY TO SHARE IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA ;;;;;;; (WITH CREDIT OFC)
And wow, thank you for your kind words!!! It really means a lot to me, especially since your own game, Dr. Frank, was so awesome!! ;__; I want to keep making games for a long time, so thank you for supporting me!!! Just......AAAAAAAAA YOU'RE SO NICE!! (Also I'm glad you like how the plot resolved itself because tbh the twist with Toa is so predictably Me it's embarrassing...)
OKAY FIRST OF ALL I LOVED THE GAME!!!
Second the story was so cute and made my heart melt and my face cry.
Third the scenery was out of this world.
Fourth the mechanics with the levitating and button pushing were all amazing.
Last I hope you consider making a sequel like Four Eyes: The Journey After or another game with such a great story like this one.
I was waiting for this to finish because after I played the Demo I knew it was going to be a great game and what you just did proved me right. So thank you for making this. It really was such a cute game filled with many emotions. I hope you continue to produce more.
AWW this comment is so sweet! Thank you!! I don't have any active plans for a sequel right now, but I had a ton of fun writing about the talyrans and I'd like to develop their society more, so it's a definite possibility someday. I will absolutely keep making games, and I hope to continue evoking emotions from players through them. It really does mean a lot to know that my game made people feel something!!
That was so amazing! I love these two togeather, greate fit. And great storyline!
I actually felt bad when Toa got mad. XD
Thank you! It's good to hear that you thought Jett and Toa were a good match, and that you liked the story. :) LOL I'm glad the game elicited some emotion from you in that way, too!
Friend of Insane here, I just got done playing. I absolutely loved this. They fit so well~
I can't get it to extract. :( It won't let me.
Hi, I sent you a response on Twitter! I think the issue is with your computer and not the file itself, so unfortunately there isn't much I can do. :( I'm very sorry about this!
I got it working, just finished it. Oh my god, the feels!!! I just about died at the end, and I am so happy that I got to play this game to the end. You did a remarkable job, and I would personally love to play another work like this if you plan on having anothergame like this in progress!
I'm so happy that you got it working!! <3 Thank you for your lovely comment and for playing through to the end! I am definitely going to make more games in the future - I'm working on an RPG right now called Jubilee Royale, which will also be a romance. :) You can read about it right here!
I was waiting for the full version of this game for so long, thank you for making such a wonderful game. I loved this game. Its cute and the characters are lovely, Irene is my favorite along with Toa, of course. Puzzles are not that hard except for the first one, which I took ages to find a solution to (I just couldn't find the thing which was confusing in his room). I loved the normal end, but even after a second play am not able to get the secret end. But still this is game is awesome and definitely one of my favorite.
Thank you very much for playing, and for your kind words! I think the puzzles were something I could have done better - they definitely could have been a little trickier. If I ever decide to make another puzzle game, that's something I'll focus on improving. :) As for the secret ending, it's admittedly a bit tricky to find! I'm writing up a walkthrough right now that'll include instructions on how to get that ending. It involves ignoring the game's instructions at one point and going back to interact with a certain character.
i've been looking forward to this game's full release ever since the demo and it's every bit as great as i expected it to be!! i love the humor and the characters and your writing really helped me warm up to them. i think i've still yet to reach the secret? ending?? so i'll get to it when i can, but i thoroughly enjoyed the game...i hope toa and jett are having a good time together :3c
I'm so happy that the full game lived up to your expectations!! <3 Thank you for commenting! The secret ending is admittedly a bit tricky to get - I'm working on a walkthrough right now that includes instructions on how to get it!
If you'd like a hint: interact with Irene as often as possible, even when the game tells you to move on to something else...
This was such a cute game! I love it so much! I had a little trouble with the grey squares part, but other then that, amazing game! The characters are so adorable and its nice to see how they act around eachother!
Thank you so much for your feedback! Sorry you had some trouble with that part - I can revise Irene's hint for the next release to make it a little clearer what you're supposed to do! I'm happy to hear that you liked the characters. :)
Oh my gosh, I didnt even realize I got a reply, I don't believe it would be necessary, I think having that little challenge and the thinking to it is great, especially when the reward you get for the strategic thinking is getting Toa back! And Yeah! The way Jett and Toa react to eachother is actually really well thought out, their personalities are just too perfect and realistic, really makes you wonder if the characters were based off of real people and a real relationship! As well as Irene, even though she doesn't get as much screen time as the wonderful couple, her behavior is really funny, and at the same time sweet, with how she supports Jett and helps him best she can without being there! I'm planning to actually work on game design and animations for the future, and on behalf of that, I can say this game is the biggest inspiration to me, I loved it so much and I love all your work! I encourage you to keep doing wonderful games like this!
This reply is way too sweet!! Oh my goodness! I'm so happy that you loved the characters so much and especially that the game inspired you. That's a fantastic goal! Please let me know if you ever end up making a game - I would love to see it. <3 I had so much fun making Four Eyes that I'm definitely going to keep it up and make more games!
I just split open a cracked bit of my bottom lip from smiling so hard lol.......
Hey! I am really sorry for just jumping into the comment section and repeat what every other person said, but I really wanted to say that this demo is awesome (already!) and that I totally fell in love with Toa and Jett. I totally did! I am so excited for the complete game, I even jumped through our flat and just HAD to write the release date in our calendar. :D Anyways, thanks for making this gmae. Have a nice day! :)
Please don't apologize for leaving such a wonderful comment! I can't believe somebody put my release date in their calendar. I'm totally stunned (in a good way!) from reading that. Really, that's so flattering for me as a creator. Thank you so much for your support, and I hope you enjoy the full version of the game when it comes out! :)
Aw this game looks so cute... by any chance when the full thing is released will it be avaliable for mac users?
Thank you! I'm very sorry, but unfortunately I can't publish a Mac-compatible version due to the limitations of the game engine I've used. I'm pretty sure there are ways to run RPG Maker VX Ace games on Mac if you Google around, but I'm a Windows user, so I can't give any direct advice on that myself. (Maybe this tutorial will work? I haven't tested it, though.) Once again, I'm sorry about this. :(
what's the code for the lunch box I can't solve it!! xD
Hi there! Do you mean the lockbox with the gun in it? If you want to try solving it by yourself one more time, I'd recommend paying close attention to what Jett says when he investigates each clue - there may be more hints hidden in his dialogue. :)
If you've given up, the answer is right here. (I've popped the answer in a link so that no one will scroll down this page and accidentally see it if they want to solve the puzzle themselves!)
attempted fanart of toa and jett
thank you ily
I loved this when I saw it on Tumblr and I still love it now!! SO CUTE!!! <3 Thank you for drawing this and for playing! (ILY TOO)
oh shoot i forgot i sent it to you on tumblr xD well keep up the gr8 wrk. I'm also looking forward to your other game, Jubilee Royale. The idea of a linear storyline with interesting choices is fascinating to me.
Well, I'm glad you posted it here too so that others can see it!! :) Thanks so much - I'm happy that you're excited for JR too! Writing a minor story branch here and there is fun, even in a linear game, so that's why I decided to do it, haha.
Hey! It's me again! While waiting for the game, I did a quick fanart of Toa! Feel free to repost it if you want!
Hope you like it ^^
AAAFGJHFJDG IT'S AMAZING!! I LOVE IT! Thank you so, so much for this beautiful drawing. You're really talented. <3 I'll absolutely share this on Twitter and Tumblr! (With credits, of course!)
Really love these characters so far. Looking forward to the full version!
I love this game so much when will the full version come out!!?
i must know!!!!!!!!! (^-^
I don't usually expect much from RPG Maker games, but I really enjoyed the short time I got from this one! Honestly, though I knew this was made for the Yaoi game jam, I completely forgot about that as I was playing. Jett is just a normal guy who's a little brash and messy, being gay isn't his defining character trait or anything. When the moment came up in which Irene says "...that's why you don't have a boyfriend," I had to stop for a second. it made me think how great it would've been to have a game like this growing up. I really hope you'll continue work on this, and I look forward to playing a full version one day. :D
Also, I think I relate to Toa on so many levels. Life just takes so much energy. Haha.
It's good to hear that my game exceeded your expectations! :) Yeah, that's something I strive for when writing LGBT characters. A character's sexuality is certainly a part of them, but it doesn't have to be their sole defining trait. I personally want to see more LGBT characters starring in fun genre works where the plot has little to do with their sexuality, just like straight characters get to, which was a motivating factor for me to make this game.
Work on this project is continuing and I hope to have the full version completed sometime this fall! LOL, I get that. Sometimes you just need a nap...or fifty...
I've just played the demo of this game, and I fell so utterly in love with the characters, the art and the story! It was so endearing and nice - I just can't wait to get my hands on the full release.
You really made my day with this short little demo - thank you for creating such a precious game!
Oh and, if I may ask, will the full release include features like battles? Not that it feels like it's really needed, I'm mostly asking out of curiosity.
Wow, thank you for this lovely comment!! It's so nice to know that my game made somebody else happy! That's all I can really ask for as a dev. :')
Nah, the full release won't have any combat elements. I am working on another RPG Maker project that does, though!
This is so cute, the full game is gonna be awesome I can already tell
I adored this game!! Really fun and I love the dialogue between Jett and Toa <3 really looking forward to the release of the full version, and seeing more relationship development and interesting gameplay! I liked that the strategy parts of the game weren't impossible, but a few of them stumped me for a while and really got me thinking. I also love the art and the colour palettes in this game! Thank you so much for making this, Four Eyes makes me very happy :-)
Well, thank you so much for leaving this comment! You put a smile on my face!! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself. <3
Hi there again. Sorry to disturb you but I have good news! A viewer of the game would like to know when the full game is gonna come out. They must have enjoyed it as much as I did because they are interested. :) Do you have a rough estimate? Thanks :)
Hey there! No need to apologize at all. :) I'm happy to hear that someone else is interested! The full version should come out sometime this fall. I'm trying for a September release, but it all depends on how much schoolwork I have to do, as I'm heading into my fourth year of my undergrad.
Thank you so much for your Let's Play! I had a lot of fun watching it and I'm so happy that you enjoyed the game! <3
I'm totally hooked on this! It's so sweet and an amazing display of how rpg games should be made! Suspense, character building and story is all in perfect proportion, which can be very difficult when creating an RPG game.
This is by far one of the best games I've ever played.
Oh my god, really?? That's extremely flattering! Thank you! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the game so much!! :')))
It took me a little while to start really enjoying the game, but by the end of the demo I was HOOKED. I especially liked watching how the relationship between Jett and Toa developed over time. What a cute sleepy alien! Also, the puzzles were interesting without being frustrating, and the music is excellent!
Yay, thanks a bunch!! :) It does have a bit of a slow start, but I'm glad you enjoyed it in the end, and that you thought Toa was cute! It's good to hear that the puzzles weren't frustrating, either. I didn't do the music myself, but I'm happy that you enjoyed the tracks I picked out! I appreciate you leaving your feedback.
We really liked it! Can't wait for the full version and see how it ends. We love the characters xD
Okay, that was adorable. I really enjoy the game mechanics and the puzzles aren't ridiculously challenging, but some of them do make you think (in particular the puzzle with half the bridge raised)
this is a really fantastic start, I'm excited for the full game and seeing more interactions between those three!
Thanks very much!! I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself and you're looking forward to the full version! :) I acknowledge that my puzzles are definitely on the simpler side - this was my first time designing them, so it was quite a learning curve, haha.
This was SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg. I loved how energetic Jett was and how his character played off of Toa's and Irene's (BOTH GREAT CHARACTERS OMG I LOVED EVERYONE IN THIS). I am seriously seriously looking forward to the full version of this I GOTTA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS! OMG.
I Let's Played this thing and loved every moment -- and that's just the demo. :'D I'll be sure to do a complete video as soon as the full game comes out!
Thanks again so much for doing the LP!! I'll look forward to seeing the full one when the game is complete!
I'm really excited for this just from the look of it and have to hold back for when the full version comes out! <3 How exciting!
