A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux


Riley is a completely unremarkable woman, if you were to ask her.
A plane ride towards a job that could change her destiny ends in disaster
when there's a critical engine failure during flight. It would be the end
for Riley too, were it not for a remarkable woman who claims to be
from the year 2165.

Yup, it's a time travel story folks.



The protagonist. Riley was a sous chef for years, mistreated and underappreciated in the kitchen. The very day she was going to interview for a position as head chef at a fancy restaurant, she was in a plane crash and died. Or she would have been if she wasn't brought to the future. But in this world, cooking is a dying art, and she's the only one who can revive it. She decides to attempt being a professional chef again in an attempt to prove she can make a significant contribution to society. If she can't, however, the consequences could be far more severe than just having to go back to school.


A historian from the year 2165. Her job is to travel back in time and investigate events that happened in the past without disrupting the future. She's a fun-loving woman who knows what she wants, and isn't afraid to go after it. Finding Riley has made no significant contributions to society, she decides to bring her into the future to allow her a second chance after hitting it off on the plane.


The head historian and a very strict, serious woman. She doesn't appreciate Max's nonsense and if the woman wasn't so good at her job Cecilia would have fired her long ago. She respects confidence and intelligence. Her outwardly frigid demeanor might make it hard for people to get a read on her, but Cecilia isn't afraid to speak her mind and make her thoughts known.

Do we have any control over the MC'S personality?

I honestly don't know why I haven't played this before! I love the storyline and the protagonist is very well written. The characters are  all very relatable. The art iswonderful! I also loved the few pop culture references in there!

Concrit: There are a few spelling errors and such, here and there, which are slightly distracting.

Frankly, this game was so much more than I expected it would be.

The conception, the writing, and the art is so lovely, immersive, and original. I really appreciated the diverse characters, and beyond that, they're all so likable and believable! (Though nothing is less believable than when Riley says she isn't gay, like, girl... lmao...)

Thank you for taking the time out of your lives to create and share this game with us (and for free!!) because it's really been a great pleasure to play it. I really look forward to seeing all the amazing things I'm sure your team will accomplish!

Thank you for making this game. :) The story is amazing. And the plot twist and the feels... uh!

Thanks so much for playing! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed :D

Do you have any problems or policies regarding Let's Plays? This one in particular would be part of a series, only feature the first 2-3 hours of one route, and link back here. 

We're completely fine with Let's Plays! Please do, we'd love to see it, too. :)


Hello! Nevina (Fallingmist on DA) and myself are going to be hosting a PG-13 yuri-jam panel at Yurithon in Montreal this August (yep, we got permish) and we were wondering if it would be ok to demo your awesome game. We've also contacted a few others so that the crowd can have a choice, or possibly if we have the time, we could demo all of those who say yes 8D

Thank you for your time!

Hello! Oh wow thank you so much for the offer! It would be so great if you could demo Plain :) We're fine with it! If possible could we hear back about the reception of the game?

Thanks again!

Aaaa thank you so much for your permission! We'll encourage everyone to play through themselves and leave comments~ 

Hey! I just wanted to double check that it's Yurithon and not Otakuthon? I'm actually at Otakuthon right now and there's a Yuro Jam panel so I wanted to double check because I would totally go to it if it were here :)

This game is awesome and the story is incredibly well crafted.

Thanks so much! I'm one of the writers, really glad you enjoyed!


Sorry for the (long) delay, the game is up for download now!
