Please Be Happy Out Now!

After over 3 years of development, we're so excited to finally bring you Please Be Happy - our latest wlw visual novel, from several of the creators behind Heart of the Woods and a few new faces.

Born as a fox in the forest of Korea, Miho carries with her the memory of a traveler who showed her kindness and spoke of home. Now more human than fox, Miho has spent a long, long time searching for her person. She arrives by airship to Wellington, one of the jewels of the floating island of New Zealand.

Despite her years spent observing humans, she still has a lot to learn about their culture and society. She's made a living so far as a thief, her heightened senses allowing her to easily take advantage of people. She's also seen a lot of the worst of what mankind has to offer.

It's only after meeting Juliet, the owner of a small library, and Aspen, an aspiring novelist, that Miho starts to understand what kindness is, and that there's more than just the bad stuff when it comes to people.


Please Be Happy is a comfy, slice-of-life experience about exploring what it means to be happy.

It features:

  • Over 220,000 words
  • 2 different routes with 2 happy endings each
  • Full English voice acting
  • A brand new original soundtrack by Sarah Mancuso
