Nineteen-year-old Yuu can’t stand his younger sister, Otoko, and the feeling is mutual. It’s been almost a year since Yuu saw her last, having escaped his dreary home town to study in the bustling city, but with the advent of New Year’s he finds himself obliged to return to his family to celebrate.

Unfortunately, Yuu’s absence has not softened his younger sister, and Otoko is just as sullen and surly as ever before.

Finding the atmosphere at home unbearable, Yuu decides to escape once more — not to the city this time, but to his grandmother’s snowy, secluded village.

The reunion between grandson and grandmother starts normally at first… until one moonlit night, when the pair witness a star streaking through the sky.

The following morning, Yuu enters the kitchen, still half-asleep, to discover...

“Who are you? What are you doing in my grandmother’s house?”

...that his grandmother has transformed into a cute young girl!

What is the reason behind his grandmother’s drastic change? Will Yuu be able to restore her to her original self? And why is she so adorable?!

Hi Ebi-hime

Very beautiful and fun story about family bonds, the art of characters is great too, I am in love with the art for the backgrounds.

I believe that lot of us are acting like Yuu with our grand-parents or something similar anyway, you are correct sadly it is often too late when we realize it.  When we get older we wished that we could have talked with them as an adult, that is my case at least.

I noticed this little mistake near the end :

Anyone can make mistake, it is not a huge problem :)


Aaa you're right omg...
I'm not sure how I missed that...
And this error has been in the game for years and nobody mentioned it haha >_>

Tysm for pointing it out; I'll try to fix it at some point in the future!

I'm glad you enjoyed the story though; thank you! <3


Mistakes happens to everyone, I do not always point out small mistakes because I am not always sure how it would be taken but for one like this,I felt that I should  tell you 🙂


Aha, thank you >_<
I'll try to make the change at some point...

And do feel free to point out any typos or any other errors in my VNs, no matter how small they might appear. I can be a bit slow about fixing things and sometimes I forget oops, but I do try to fix up everything when I can!

I understand that you can be busy with all the visual novels you make, I understand it takes time,  anyone can play the visual novel to the end so it  is alright,   I am not perfect with English grammar, not even in my own language, I remember seeing a typing mistake but now I do not remember where it was, I am sorry.

I understand that it is difficult to find a mistake in a huge text when you do not know where it is exactly. 💪❄️


A thought-provoking tale about family relationships, disguised as a light-hearted comedy in the beginning. The story's finale brought a lot of emotions. Also, I like how the title screen image changes after finishing reading the VN.


Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it! <3

Hi, the game wasn't starting on MacOS 10.14.6 (Mojave) for me. By comparing the .app of another Ren'Py game I figured out that the files 'A_Winter's_Daydream.py' and 'A_Winter's_Daydream.sh' as well as the folders 'game' and 'renpy' should be put into A_Winter's_Daydream.app/Contents/Resources/autorun/

Hope this helps anybody struggling
