Read the love letter without getting caught! Can you find your true love before 2nd period?


Move with the mouse. Click and hold to read the letter. Don't get caught!

(you can also use the arrow keys and space bar or WASD and enter instead)


The Love Letter was originally our entry for the Ludum Dare 22 game jam in December. People seemed to like it, so we polished up the game for Valentine's Day and kept going from there.

Now it's on Newgrounds! Hope you like it. :)


:o Newgrounds front page! Wow, thank you! :D

Here, we added ten NG medals for you to unlock. Enjoy!

Oh, it was such a good little game! I lovelovelove 8-bit style, and this was so cute. I didn't realize how hard people had it but...I won in 2 minutes! The style is perfect, the story and game is short and sweet, and it was a wonderful little thing.
Thanks for sharing with us (and adding the medals)! <3

great game its a bit short thouh thereshould be a twist where the girl runs away when u say nothing and you spend the rest of the period looking for rumors of were she is hiding and find her ( i just realised that was stakerish)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I won the 1st try, not kidding, It was kind of maniacle, the following of the kids just to say hi or sup to you and not even go get their stuff for next hour. The writing of the letter was kind of weird...And can't you just read the letter while running?What boy goes to a girl that talks about having a pencil that he gave her. Litteraly!! But, was kind of entertaining and was really good to kill time.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

pretty good game ha ha at first i was gonna rage quit but it hit me the point is not to avoid them but to gather everyone then ditch them and that will give you PLENTY of time to read the letter but again nice honestly i was expecting a twist like a guy or something in the "ah fuck..." category

you deserve every star

I rage quit this game several times, yet I kept telling myself that I would read that damned letter... Never did... Just thought I'd chime in with some semi constructive criticism... Or just complaints!~

List of complaints:
1. Why not go outside for some privacy? or the bathroom? or anywhere but the damned halls?

2. What an outrageously evil body of students. If people did this in real life they'd be liable to get hurt... (HI! *follows you* SUP *follows you like a zombie crawling the halls...)

3. Boy reads incredibly slow. And I mean REALLY slow... (must be mentally challenged)

4. Music drives me crazy! (Doesnt loop properly and sounds like 8-bit weather music)

5. What is the POINT!? So the poor mentally challenged boy gets a love letter and has been charged by god to read it in the halls of a some strangely designed high-school that is crawling with zomboid followers with only two things on their puny minds, greeting each other and embarrassing the retarded kid with dark hair. Sounds like a great idea for a video game!

Good job bro, good job.

Game (if that's what you call it) should've been a bit more interactive: Like being able to push the students away... Or open doors and go into rooms... Pull the fire alarm... Etc etc.

Art style is cute and matches the music. Colors are well chosen and everything seems to mesh together.
