Prototype Release: October 28th, 2015 (YuriJam 2015 Demo)
Final Release: 2018

After The Bell Rings is the story of Mana and Sayaka, two young adults whose roads suddenly crossed one night. Mana is an English teacher in High School and Sayaka is a punk-rock free spirit who wants nothing but make Mana's life more enjoyable.

Meanwhile, Mana needs to deal with the fact that her students are experiencing troubles of their own. From the deeply depressed Saki who struggles to open up about herself to the constantly-in-trouble Yuri who can't keep herself from breaking school rules.

Dealing with the topic of clashing perceptions of marginalized gender and sexuality groups along with the trouble romances can bring, After The Bell Rings is a fairly serious visual novel inspired by the struggles people face every day.

For YuriJam 2015 we released the prologue chapter, then called chapter 1, as a free demo to download. This demo shows off the first portion of the story as it was written at the time, though it's not reflective of the final game any more.

Character designs and illustrations are drawn by storyboos, who've been part of the project since 2015. The full game is set to hopefully release some time in 2018.

I enjoyed playing your game, thank you! I like the two characters and I'm eager to play chapter 2!

Detail: I think 43 kg is really little for Sayaka Tsuyuri.

Thank you! Sayaka Tsuyuri is underweight (like myself) so that's why she's very light, we'll get more into that in later chapters. ^_^

Oh, ok, I understand then. Good luck for chapter 2!


Ooh, can't wait to try it out!
