You are the new healer in the fairy town of Liebwald, ready to seek adventure, friendships and maybe even love. Healing physical injuries is like second nature to you, but can you be the balm for your neighbours' hearts as well? It all depends on the choices you make on your way.


Features

  • Circa 2 hours of playtime for one playthrough
  • Plenty of atmospheric sceneries in a comfy fantasy/fairytale setting
  • A colourful cast of 6 romanceable characters (2 girls, 3 boys, 1 NB)
  • A possible poly route with two sweet guys
  • You can choose your name and pronouns (he/she/they) in the beginning, which will not limit your romance options in any way.
  • No pressure: Even if you don't choose romance in the end, you will certainly find friendship.


Characters

Nord – A chirpy and excitable messenger of the royal court.
Atlas – A heavy-weight himbo with a big heart to match.
Blossom – A strong farmlady with a surprisingly soft side.
Moth – A fabulous tailor who is a bit too comfortable behind his high-society mask.
Aleth – A quiet travelling merchant who is very attached to their chalkboard.
Kaileen – A cheerful alchemist who wants to share her thoughts with you. All of them.

Measures were taken to make this visual novel accessible to blind players. You can activate self-voicing by pressing V at any point in the game.

Note that Lovewood is optimized as a PC game! The Android version is functional and has a simplified UI for better readability on phones, but it is the most experimental build and may not work on older systems. There are currently 2 versions of the game for Android - Pick the one that's labeled as "New" and only try the Old version if that one doesn't run!

Content Warning: This visual novel features one depiction of a bloodied injury, and another scene showing harassment from an authority figure in a workplace situation. If you'd prefer to avoid either of these scenes, a written guide on how to do so can be found here.

A lot of love went into this game - I hope it comes through. <3

Changelog:
2022-03-11: Added the Lovewood artbook in the download section as a piece of bonus content.
Update 1.4 for Windows and Linux - Fixed some display issues when skipping; fixed a sprite glitch in Atlas' ending; tweaks in some dialogue lines.
Update 1.4 for Android - Same as the above, with some additional GUI tweaks (quickmenu buttons are now spaced further apart). Cleaned up the transition screen as well.
2023-05-01: Update 1.4.1 for Android - I added a newer version of the game for Android in the Download section! This one uses Renpy 8.0.3, meaning it's more compatible with modern Android systems. I'll keep the old version available for now, but when in doubt, choose the newer version.

ALETH JUST STOLE MY HEART <33333

(+1)

CAN'T BELIEVE IT WAS THAT F*CKING GOOD THANKS

NKCVFDNV Thank you!! :>

(+1)

hi again its me, i have a question for the dev. what order should i go through to make it more of a seasonal feel ( EX I.S )

(+1)

For the order in which to play the games? I would recommend playing Lovewood first, then Invisible Seams. You can also check out the shorter games (Frightwood, When Trees Turn To Ice, Living With Ghosts) at any point after playing Lovewood, but that is optional :)

thanks but i couldn't get I.S because of the currency issue!

Ooooh right, sorry! In that case you can play the smaller spinoff games in whatever order you like. Frightwood is more whimsical and is chronologically the first. When Trees Turn to Ice and Living With Ghosts are more serious in tone. :>

(+1)

such a cute game, I just finished my first play through and both Kaileen and Atlas are easily my favourites! 

(+1)

Thank you!! 🌺 Always happy to hear when those two come out as someone's faves! :>

I cant download the game :(

Sorry to hear that! Can you describe more on how the issue looks like? It may also help to try again later.

When I tried to download it it said "download failed" so ig ill try again

were you using chrome or opera GX?

Ok yay it worked:D

(+1)

Nice, glad to hear that it worked :D
Sometimes Itch.io can be a bit finicky like that. I'm not sure what's causing it either!

(+1)

this is such an adorable game oh my gosh ! I've just played one route so far , but I will absolutely be getting as much out of this game as possible haha ! absolutely darling characters , so glad I found this game !! <3

Aaah thanks! Really glad to hear that you're having a good time with it 😊

Umm I'm having a hard time opening the android version can you pls fix it thank you ❤️

Hi! I just compiled a new version of the game for Android, using the most recent version of the engine. You can find it in the download section as "Lovewood for Android (new version 8.0.3)". If you give that one a try, could you please let me know if that solves your issue? It would be really valuable info for me. :>

Yay! It's working now thank you so much! I've been looking so much onto reading this one 😍😍

You're welcome, happy to hear that it works :D

(+1)

I just finished reading it and all I can say is WOW!! I love it! I love everything about it! I love how the story goes and I love the artstyles! The characters! and of course Aleth!!! (he's my favorite ) It looks like everything in this vn was made with pure love and determination, I'm looking forward into reading more of your works thank you so much for this ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Aaaaah thank you!! 💝 So glad to hear that TuT

(+2)

Very cute and wholesome game! I had a great time. Aleth is my favorite <3

(1 edit) (+1)

Anyone else having problems opening the the android version?  No matter how many times I've re-download it the game just won't run.  I'm constantly stuck on a loading screen with longest time I've waited for itbto open being 20 minutes.

The new Android link works

(+1)

Thanks for letting me know! I just added an updated version of the game for Android, it's titled "Lovewood for Android (new version 8.0.3)" in the download section. If you give that one a try, could you please let me know if that resolved you issue?

(+1)

I given the new version a try and it works, even after updating my tablet to an even newer version (Android 11 to Android 13).  Thank you.

(+2)

Very cute and wholesome VN! Loved the poly route--I def need to play your spinoff story of Atlas and Nord because I can't get enough of their cuteness.

Thank you! So happy to hear that their route hit its mark <3

(+1)

i just found this game downloaded on my pc with no recollection of what it was and oh my god, it was a delight. there was clearly so much work put into making this and it paid off!!! i've been a vn lover for years but this is one of the best ones i've ever played wow i'm in awe

Aaaah thank you!! I'm glad it was enjoyable <3

(+2)

Loved Aleth's route! 

(+3)

LET ME KISS OBERON.

(+8)

He may just allow it...


(+2)

I've never been more honored in my life.

(+3)

Polyamory! Polyamory! Polyamory! 🤝🥰🤝


This was such a great VN and probably one of the most polished I played among all the free ones. Kudos!

(+2)

oh my goodness I adore this game. the art is just -- stunning. ALL those backgrounds? and the gui? and the MANY variations in character poses?? the transitions, and the gorgeous cgs?
I can smell the love and hard work poured into this from kilometres away.

all the characters are incredibly lovable and the story is really sweet. my personal favourites were Nord and Aleth, but honestly you'll have a really good time regardless of who you spend time with!

Aaah that's so sweet, thank you!! <3 So glad you enjoyed the experience!

No pictures of Atlas?

(+1)

He didn't end up making it into the selection of screenshots I picked back then, but now that you mention it maybe I should add one with him too!

(+1)

Please, do! :)

(+1)

Here, but i speak spanish, so i hope you can enjoy my reactions xD
(+1)

Thank you, this is so awesome!! I'll make sure to share a link to it on my development Tumblr as well :D

(+1)
Hello, I was wondering if you had any social network, I am uploading gameplay of your game and I would like people to give you love and affection for your great game :D
(+1)

Ohh, that would be lovely! If you end up making a video, feel free to share it in this comment section too <3
If you'd like to link to one of my socials, it would be great if you include my Itch profile (https://ladyicepaw.itch.io/). That way people can find my games, and that site includes links to my other socials as well. Thank you :D

the game didn't load for me when i opened it, so i just watched a gameplay on youtube! ^^'

it's very very cute and i really love how you included a nonbinary character! ♡

i relate to them a lot so tysm, much love for you! ♡

(+1)

Sorry it didn't work on your device, I'm glad you took the chance to watch it elsewhere! Thank you <3

(+1)

Absolutely adorable! so sweet and lovely. lol was very confused when the game said my name couldnt be Atlas XD some crazy coincidence that i go by that name.

(+1)

Ooooh so the name filter actually sprung into action for someone XD Yeah, that would have gotten pretty confusing! Glad you enjoyed it <3

(+3)

Word cannot describe how much I love this game! Honestly my first romance game because the stereotypes scared me, haha. But this was so sweet and wholesome! It was lovely-

And Aleth is so sweet- I love him. I would pay for more stories with Aleth

(+2)

Awww thank you <3 <3
Very happy to hear that it could offer something wholesome and a little different!

(+1)

I loved it! I played for only 2 routes but I'm planning on doing all of them when I get the time. The story is interesting and the characters are really well thought out. AND THEIR ALL SO CUTE LIKE OMG. My favorite currently is Aleth but who knows. I'm planning on doing Blossoms route next. I love her character design!! But anyways, I love the game and give it a 10/10 :D

(+1)

Ahhh thank you <3
So happy to hear that :D

(+1)

Stuck on startup. Just a black screen and no amount of reinstalling, waiting to load, or changing devices or type of device has fixed it. Seems to be literally unplayable.

Terribly sorry to hear that.  :(

The game seems to throw a fit when it comes to certain mobile devices, and since it's an engine problem, I'm afraid it's something I can't fix.

I got the same problem. My tablet (Android 10) shows a "loading" icone then a black screen

(+1)

Very Wholesome, I loved it! Wouldn't change a thing

Thank you 🤗

O nvm i just had to reinstall it

(+1)

God, Ive loved the two hours of the game 

And enjoy have the final With Kaileen as lesbian

Thank You so much For this >_<

You're welcome! So glad you had a good time with it :D

(+2)

hfhdffjdfj thsi whole game was so heartwarming!!

i also really liked that even if you go to the party without a date, you're not actually alone and end the night surrounded by your new friends, it made me very happy <3

(+2)

ashjfkdkg thank you! Great to see that someone enjoyed the friendship ending, it was very fun to write :D

(+3)

This was so fun and sweet !! Really liked every characters but my heart belongs to Aleth :D

(+2)

So glad to hear that! The little merchant creature can never get enough love <3

(+1)

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started to play your adorable game but it was a pleasant delight to find such warm and inviting characters each with their own background story and exciting adventure to enjoy.  I played the Atlas romance as I love a rugged and furry fairy of a man lol.  I was all giggles and blushes when it turned into a threesome.   

I really loved Kaileen she was the perfect sister type friend that I have always wanted as she loves plants like me and she is just so sweet and kind.  You have a way with words and have created something beautiful, touching and comforting.  

Its a soothing game to play with a warm cup of tea wrapped in a fuzzy blanket.  If you want to watch my playthroughs of the entire romance with Atlas here. :) 

(+1)

Oooooh that is so sweet of you, thank you! It's always so exciting when people post a Let's Play of the game and I get to hear their reactions as they play. I'll be watching yours while working on the art for the next game, it really keeps me going :D

Hope you have a lovely day, and thank you so much for sharing the video!

(+1)

Thank you so much you've no idea how much that makes me happy!  I take so much time and love into my playthroughs but I am so new and still learning.  I used to be an artist also my profile pic is one of my art pieces and so is the art in my channel to hear you say you create your own illustrations is amazing.  You're very talented I will be watching for your next game and supporting! <3

(+1)

Okay so, this may become a long comment but! I have a lot to say on this game: first of all, in my first playthrough I went for Aleth, great choice 10/10 would choose to date again. It was so so cute, the scene with Kaileen and the potion was incredibly well done, I could really feel the love they both had for each other and the care in their friendship.

AND!!! The poly ending with Nord and Atlas was MY FAVORITE! A friend recommended me this game and he tried Nord's route first, he was very sad when he ended up being rejected, I was feeling some romantic vibes from him and Atlas, even mentioned it to him, I was so hoping we could make a throuple, AND IT HAPPENED!!! I was ecstatic to say the least, lovely lovely lovely, the party scene and all their romantic interactions afterwards were a great representation of a loving and health polyamorous relationship, thank you so much for this!

I still plan on doing other routes, and I know for sure it will be a great time! This game has amazing visuals and the whole atmosphere is very soothing and cozy, perfect for days when I'm feeling down and need some comfort. Again, thank you so much for creating this!

(+1)

Thank you so much!! Your comment made my day TuT
Including the poly route was a bit of a gamble, since I know it can be disappointing to players like your friend, but it makes me all the happier when someone reaches that ending successfully and enjoys it!

(+1)

this game was so sweet! the characters are all really really loveable, and i love all the different mechanics that make this really nicely balanced and overall a fun and cozy gamin experience :)

(+1)

Thank you! So glad to hear that you enjoyed it :D

The download link doesn't work for me. Ive tried downloading the game on both my pc and phone but it just says the page is unavailable :(

(+1)

Oh no, that's odd :o
Does this download key maybe work for you?

(+1)

I LOVE THIS, LOVE THE CHARACTERS AND THE WRITING!!

Thanks!! UwU 💖

(+1)

I BARELY STARTED THE GAME AND I'M IN LOVE!! THE WRITING, THE ART, THE CHARACTERS EVERYTHING, IS AMAZING!! KEEP UP THE SUPERB WORK :))

(+1)

Omg thank you 🤗 💖

(+2)

I have fallen head over heels for Aleth!!

I see so much of myself in them, so that could be why (including hair colour lol) and its all around incredible!! Definitely a new comfort game!

Thank you! So glad to hear you find them relatable <3

(+1)

I just got around to playing this yesterday night and almost pulled an all nighter for it hehe. I absolutely adore the atmosphere, music, art and characters! This is such a comfy game and made me feel so warm and bubbly while playing lol. Loved all the characters but Aleth and Kaileen might be my favorite pair! Also I love the ending cg's for all the characters when we draw them, IT'S SO CUTE!! (speaking of, is there a way to find all the cg's somewhere?) Also the music and ambient sounds are wonderful! My favorite song has to be Achaidh Cheide, loved seeing Aleth dancing! And the sounds of the birds and chalk were very calming to hear :) In general, the music choices complimented the game really well and made it even cozier!
So fricken glad I came across this game <33 KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK, I'M EXCITED FOR MORE OF YOUR PROJECTS :DD 
Sorry for the long comment, I hope you have a wonderful day :D

(+1)

Aaaah thanks a lot <3 I actually really love  getting long comments of people telling me what they enjoyed!
Really glad to hear that you liked the ending CGs! I don't have them uploaded anywhere, but I could put them in a Stash folder if you'd like to download them and save them on disc? You can also press S ingame to take a screenshot, which is then saved in the Lovewood folder.

Oh! I'd love the folder of CGs if it's not too much of a bother! If it is, then I'll gladly take the screenshots ingame ^^ 
Also, I had so much to say after finishing the game, SO MANY EMOTIONS AHHHHH! I'm glad I could put it out here :D 

(+1)

Here ya go~ https://sta.sh/22dhgww75cgh
It has all the romantic ending CGs and the sketch from the platonic ending as well :D

(+1)

Thank you so much!! 

(+1)

this is one of if not the best game ive tried on here, the artwork amazing, the script was so perfect it seemed effortless, the words were said in a way that i truly believed these characters would say the things they did. ive been scouring this website for good sims and this is the only one that i played where i went back to get another ending. thats the highest compliment i can give because usually i only find one character i want to pursue but in this one i chose atlas then went back to get aleths ending 100/100 stars

Aaaaah thank you very much TuT
I'm glad the game could provide something unique!

(+2)

Ohmygod I loved this!! Aleth and moth were definitely my favorite ones :] I'm super picky with games, but this 100% deserves a 8,5/10. Would give it a way higher rating if the plot was a little longer and less long-- saying that may sound confusing, but I mean-- if the dialogues/chit-chatting was a little more quick-passing and it had a more complex storyline ^^ but it's adorable nonetheless!

Thank you, that is great to hear :D I hope I can address some of those weak points in the new project I'm working on - It focuses more on a single plotline in contrast to Lovewood's sort of episodal structure.
Always happy when Moth turns out to be someone's favourite, he's got a special place in my heart too!

(+1)

this game was designed so well and is insanely charming! i loved all of the characters and the art style is gorgeous <3

Thank you! <3
