A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Android

Socially Awkward is a 18+ semi-linear furry visual noveon emotional cues to portray the story of each individual character on certain topics and reactions.

You are Jayce (Name can be replaced). An insecure half-breed cat who just started his college life. Follow his day-to-day to uncover each character's past to get to know them as well as figure out the world around him.


The game is on hiatus. 

Route destination:

Take Left for Rask or Maccon's

Take Right for Tom or John's






To my Patreons. Thank you for supporting me this far! I'm always thankful for your generous support, but if you're wondering what happened to the Patreon page, I've pulled out ^^;;

The reason being is that I'm not having fun creating the story anymore. I've tried pushing through the wall to keep going, but on the other side was the same wall that I've ironically built myself. A strange analogy I know, even though I don't truly understand it myself, but it feels like the right thing to say. 


Hope you understand! *runs away with your wallet* 


It's kinda ironic but if you still like to give out change, I got ko-fi! The difference is that I don't feel the monthly pressure o3o~


I also got a discord server if you'd like to come over to chat about the game or give some input on the characters, story, grammar and bugs that needs fixing! Click me!

PLEASE READ THE DEVLOGS FOR ISSUES, FIXES AND CHANGES!!! Ty~

I'll leave it here

(+7)(-6)

I want tom part

(+9)

Rest as much as you need!

It is obvious that the work on the project is colossal, so rest is simply necessary.

We will patiently wait and believe that one day you will return to us.

We believe in you, Monchimutt!

We belive in you! I want some sausage party wen you'r back!

(+1)

Its all right, take all the breaks you need! Hope you are ok tho

(+1)(-3)

Don't drop please. We really like your VN. Hope you can continue it soon.

when is the next update pls

it's on hiatus now ;( so prob not soon

Is my download glitched or something? I've seen everyone else looking like their far into the game but my game only goes up till Jayce has the nightmare. Am I missing something?

If you haven't solved it yet, you are on one of the less completed routes. I think both Rask's and John's routes end at the nightmare. I can't recall how far Maccon' s route goes, and I know for sure that Tom's route goes past.

thanks! I probably accidentally landed on that route but I'll wait out an update because id rather see where it goes than try to get another atm

(+1)

R U A FILIPINO???? the puppybees was the giveaway, esp the longanisa lol 

(+1)

the Creator is a Filipino :)

:(( <3 nauuuuur but we need to support more filo artist  :((( <3

I knew it

(1 edit) (+3)(-1)

MORE MACCON UPDATES NOW

(+2)

Is it just me or the new Jayce kinda looks like ugly sonic.

(+3)(-1)

(+2)(-2)

Its giving me ugly sonic vibes, prolly because of the eyes are further apart and smaller than the rest of the other jayces? and the teeth are individually lined like sonic?  kinda looks different from the other jayces:

(+1)

I love that this last update dropped while I was at my local Pride event.

(+2)(-1)

I played the whole game... And i still don't know why i like David... He's just ADORABLE

He is not a love interest so he has this thing were we are not pressured to let them in our lives, but instead we are pleased he exist in our lives. Also, well written character.

(+1)(-1)

I wonder if John and David will become possible love interest routes. I really can't wait for the updates too.

Oh, John has a route, but it hasn't been updated yet. Rest assured, we'll get some lovin' from him in the future! 😋Not sure about David tho.

I believe David's a minor, so no (he used to be but then they changed his age).

(2 edits) (+1)

Oh I see...but if that's so, (in Maccon's route) then I wonder why he literally gave a condom lol, if you see what I'm getting at

(+1)

I mean from what I recall he's 17 so it's not like he's completely clueless. He probably just wants his brother to use protection (and more or less just another one of monchi's gags).

(+1)

Is there an actual route for Rask? Because the updates are going like Maccon-Tom-Maccon-Tom-...  And Rask only appears in "his route" so idk what to think. Anyway, more updates for my boy Tom, not gonna complain.

(+1)

They were working on Rask's route but ended up with Tom in order to make the story progress properly, more info in this update post: https://monchimutt.itch.io/socially-awkward/devlog/397179/socially-awkward-022-toms-route

(1 edit)

Dude how many times more will u change the story? BAHAHA

I lost track of how many versions of it there was already... tho so far, this one is being the most enjoyable hehe just started a new route and I'm reading what's new :D


ALSO *SPOILER*








EmoJi, no? And u can actually do place a real emoji...

Ren'py Emoji 😲 and Custom Text Tags - YouTube


Edit: btw, what's that BS "your parents" thingy? No ideia of what's BS LOL

Just played the new Tom' route and it was very amusing :D

I liked the changes you made, it made me laugh a lot haha. Besides, I'm kinda curious to see how it develops...


Loved the new arts <3 and glad u already have plans on doing a gallery for them hehe

They'r so expressive haha and the BGs are pretty awesome too!

Besides the one's that the MC is with his head down... those look WEIRD AS HELL '-'

The paiting/photo on the living room does weird me out tho LOL


Waiting for more! xP




*SPOILERS*

Ooh, just something, the shower scene involving Maccon and the dude I forgot the name was a bit eh weird... forced I think? 

Like the story was flowing okay, then that popped out of nowhere and kinda had no congruence at all...it would make much more sense if it was just Tom playing along with what *lousy* suggestions John may made to him (as implied by his dialogues after), without Maccon and the other dude being invoved.

Besides, u need a new BG for the showers LOL the "private" one is exactly a publich shower... and again, regarding the "forced story", the fck is a random dude doing on the owner's (of the gym) private shower?

It's still weird Tom showing there, as I presume a private shower is like, one stall with only one showerhead, but okay, "passable" - maybe that shower has 2 stalls or something like that? - , moreso considering that Maccon may be doing him a favor - as Tom did talk about the MC to him -, but damn, the FCK those other 2 "extras" do there? hahaha

Hope I was clear enough LOL my English sucks.


Also, their dicks are WEIRD AS FCK when hard LOL

They look okay soft, but seems like a "skin-colored" murshoom - acoording to the OCs skin color.


And the ghost thing was hillarous and weird ;P and yeah, I did finally felt the horror tag with those eyes looking at my soul LOL


Found some typos:

sensation*

hospital*


Oh, and regarding the art, something is pretty weird here... like, in some CGs it seems like they're different OCs '-'

Maybe different artist or something like that - as the style is preeety different haha

In some they look the usual, in others Tom is just a bit different - art style I think - but in others the MC goes from hmm "regular 20s dude?" to looking like a twink '-' that was pretty WTF


Here Tom's a bit different, but as said, the style it was drawn is different too... 

Not much difference haha it's better to keep it consistent tho

Here they both look kinda different...moreso for Jayce - but I dunno if it was intended xP

The one MC seems like a twink

(+1)

I believe BS is Bull crap… I do not know if I can type the word… sorry.

Are there guides for the different routes :)?

(+1)

Currently there are only 3 routes. Tom, Maccoon, and Rask. If you want Maccon's route, when you arrive at the school, go to the schoolyard by pressing "Left" and "Keep Going". If you want Tom's route, just press "Right". If you want Rask route, just press "Left" and "Head Back".

Hope this helps~

(1 edit)

You forgot John's route which can be accessed by just agreeing to switch seat with him.

(+1)

Lol, about that, I actually just figured about it yesterday and didn't even know he had a route (like David) 'till then. My bad. (´;ω;`)

(+1)

Is it possible to see the nurse John describes???

(+1)

on Tom route, paceholder only tho

(+4)

Lol, what type of ending was that

(+3)

WAIT! I was playing Tom's route when I noticed him cut off his last name. I thought that was odd, but wrote it off thinking his family was famous or something. Then I played John's route, and he addressed himself as John T. Nully, not John T. Scarab-. 


Was this explained somewhere and I was too smooth brain to notice? 0-0

(+2)

Oh. Old family. Although, I admit, it was nice to find out more about them. 

(+2)

What program did you use to do this game. It´s awsome by the way, i identify as the protagonist so much even my friends say it´s literally you XD

(+2)

The VN was made in Renpy.

With what programming lenguage?? java??

(+2)

Ren'Py uses its own custom script, which to my knowledge is just called Ren'Py. I think it is just Python with a custom interpreter, but I'm not sure. Either way, you can execute Python code within Ren'Py scripts so a Python background could be helpful here.

Fortunately, both Ren'Py and Python are super easy to learn, so if you start trying to write a novel with Ren'Py you can learn both as you go.

(+1)

i´ll have it in mind, thank you for answering this questions :3

(+5)

Freakin love this, hope life is going ok and looking forward to the next update!! <3

(+4)

Just played and even thou its short really liked it.  Definitely a Maccon fan on this.  Any news on the creator about updates or is it dead?

(+5)

OAO *hold up a knife*

si nos matas vamos a atormentar a tom por la eternidad, como no stalkear  a ese papucho 

(+3)

I say they very much alive. May need some love and money to continue living though.

Maybe they need a sandwich? 

🥪

(+1)

This game is hilarious and fun, I'm excited to see how it goes!

(1 edit)

How do I go past the fire ball part because i cant go further than that

fire ball?

after the ghost part (shoulda worded it better) 

Oh! I get ya now.

Because that's the path of Jon. And it's so short, I tried all of them, and the first time I played it, I was confused too. You can try another option. There should be a total of 4 routes if I'm not mistaken.

oh okay thank you

(+2)(-9)

Funny enough, I made a GoFundMe page to support my visual novel series. No such luck though :/


Btw, love the game! 

(+8)(-1)

So... How do I start this...? There were other 3 VNs I played before Socially Awkward...

Disclaimer: nothing here is a cRiTiCaL ReViEw, but just a bunch of opinions from a fan! (probably fanboy)

I've started playing FVNs a few months ago. First one was Echo, with an amazing, intense, horror experience with an awesome writting. I had a roller coaster of emotions... The horror and character relations were nice.

Then, my second one was Nekojishi, which the production surprised me a lot... Amazing soundtrack, characters desing and all. It even had an opening, and gave me a lot of expectations, but... I don't know, their writting just didn't catch me well? Despite all the good things I've played only one route and didn't feel like trying others...


And third, Temptations Ballad... I've got in love with everything there. The soundtrack, the way the sprites move, the writting... It was an experience better than Nekojishi, specially in making the player liking and caring about the characters... I've thought it could be even better than Echo when it finishes... 


But then, started playing this one... Which made me create an account on itch.io to write this comment... Socially Awkward.


This VN just feel special to me. By far, my favorite over all the four I've played until now.


Not even Echo or Temptations Ballad made me want to replay the routes over and over again like Socially Awkward makes me.


My days get better from reading their interactions, listening the soundtracks and admire the character's expressions while they speak. The effort and love from the creator for these characters and story is visible.


The humor already got me in the beginning. I laughed hard when I saw the option of making the MC waking up thinking about P E N E.  This stupid kind of comedy is my kind.


Jayce is pretty cute, funny and specially relatable when you've dealt with Social Anxiety. I could've keep hours reading his dumb thoughts and actions for hours without getting tired. I love how he is not shy and talks normally when is around his friends too. It's pretty real;


And talking about his friends, John, man... I confess I thought I'd dislike him at the start. This "gremilin character archetype" is something I personally dislike, BUT... John is VERY likeable, his jokes and takes are actually funny, and his personality isn't summed up in being an asshole... 


He is an fun bro who helps Jayce a lot of times! (for example, when he stole David's collar to get Jayce's wallet back, or at the shirts testing scenes)... That's something I love on this VN, characters are all more than just one thing, y'know?


John makes the scenes between the characters way better. When John is on screen I already know something unexpectedly absurd and funny will be said or done.


Similar thing happened with Rask. Like, he is an rich dude... But he is so cute and adorable I wanna hug him and squeeze so hard man >////<


Also, Maccon's route was my first one, and when I replayed it I noticed how well the characters introductions were done when all of them get together...


We see Maccon and Tom's dialogue while John's sprite follows David's nonstopping... That scene was just amazing, all characters were interacting with something, and it was just great.


Monchi knows very well how to make the character's faces express what they are feeling and thinking with the sprites... I love a lot when they're thoughtful before giving an reply to something and their eyes like... With an thoughtful expression, duh


And... David's sprite expression's are my favorite, cuz he doesn't speak a lot and we can know easily what is on his mind. He show's perfectly what I say about Monchi's ability in using the sprites moves and character's sprites here...


There is also an scene of Jayce beating Tom that come's up to my mind... His sprite was so big lmao XD


(Remember: I'm just fanboy fanboying over something he loves)


Talking about Tom... Man, WHAT A GREAT HUSBANDO...


I haven't payed much attention on him at first (he was my last route); but he became my favorite love interest! (Fav character is still Jayce... Or John... Or Dav- AAAA INDECISIVE); 


His flashback scenes with Jayce, taking care of him as kid made my heart melt... The throwing shoes scene and the cake scene made me cry. And I rarely cry with media for some reason (haven't cried not even in Echo); 


These scenes aren't super heavy or super emotional, but I've got so attached to the characters that these scenes hit hard... That's what your VN did to me dude...


Still on Tom, his teasing scenes at gym on the last update made me be sure that he is the best... Like, wow... o///o wasn't expecting Tom to do this and when he did it was so... Hot. Dude knows how to tease.


So, well, this is already pretty long, and I could keep talking about more and more scenes and things that make this VN feels so special to me the more scenes and aspects I remember.


I know there are a few criticism about this show and I'm probably making things look better than they actually are by writting this; but I'm so in love with this job that I just wanted to put on an declaration of love for this author's job.


You're an amazing and talented author dude. It's clear how you care and put everything on John, Tom, Maccon, Rask, David and Jayce's story; never let anyone tell ya otherwise!

Question, is it possible to get the token and still get a message to get the token?

(2 edits) (+6)(-26)

Maccon's nude sprite disappointed me and turned me off. Not a fan of cut/mutilated men. It's my fault, I hyped myself up, thinking him being Latino would make him hotter than Tom. In more constructive criticism, the story's pacing is too slow and is becoming tedious to follow, the plot seems aimless, and the unreliable release schedule makes me lose interest. The lesson here is to finish writing and producing a VN before publishing it. Creating the VN each update is a terrible thing many developers do on this site, that makes it harder to trust creators, harder to commit. Visually and narratively this is not for me anymore, I had high hopes months back. I am done with this VN. :(

(+4)(-10)

I agree with everything you said 😿😿😿😿 I'm really sad because this game doesn't go ahead 🐱😿😿😿😿 I got involved in the story is very amazing 😺😺 John cute 😻😻😻😻😻😻 I check every day to see if there is an update 😿😿😿  I hope all is well with the creator and that he has a lot of motivation and health to continue 😻😻😻😹😹😿😺😽 I hope it's fast too :D Hihihi 😻😻



(+1)

Honestly, I was happy the gang was having fun. It was insane, yet the right amount of comedic.

(+1)(-18)

I didn't have a problem with the shower shenanigans. What disappointed me was Maccon's character design. I expected him, being a Latino doggo, to be uncircumcised/not mutilated, due to the culture. I dislike cut characters, so I was willing to let that pass, since Tom is at least uncut... but then I noticed the problems with the story itself, and with how unreliable updates are, there is nothing to keep me invested. It really sucks how people publish incomplete VNs and then complete them at a slow place, making one wait YEARS for the finished product. Even worse, since I have paid double $$ digits, and invested 18 months of my life, for this project on Patreon. So you can see how unhappy I am with this product so far.

(+4)(-1)

Oh. I wasn't really arguing, I just wanted to share my thoughts. Well, I do understand your frustrations, but a little sympathy can be allowed given Mochi's circumstances. I don't know what the money is being used for, but I do see Mochi making progress on their Twitter. I trust them. I believe in Mochi. 

(2 edits) (+1)(-14)

There is only one creator I trust on this site. He is a person I respect greatly. Despite his busy life, he managed to publish a complete VN, and monthly updates are merely translations and adding more CGs, story wise his VN is done and very well written. I don't trust anyone else, because in the last 12 months, 10 VNs I used to read/play went into indefinite semi-permanent hiatus, because their authors had not planned before publishing, and were making up the story as they went with each update, until they "burn out" and quit. After wasting time on them, and coming to trust this author I am fond of, I realized serious authors will publish full VNs, unless they can consistently prove they can handle the monthly update schedule and follow through with it.

(+7)(-1)

Seek professional help bud

(+4)(-1)

I agree with Link2346

(+1)(-1)

I really feel you
There are many good novels out there, but sometimes their long update periods/unknown status make me gradually lose interest in them, and by the point when an update finally comes out, I may have already forgotten half of the story/events, and in that case I either have to reread the whole thing to understand what's going on, or just kinda abandon it for some time

(+5)

I only just started playing and i already know this is pure gold.  Absolutely amazing!  Thanks for making this <3 the art is gorgeous, the characters feel alive and the cute humour is on point (Jayce having the same ability as the puss in boots from shrek ? hell yeah)

(+1)

hey just wondering if theres a way to access the music files? just wanted to know the names of the songs and music used to listen to :)

(+4)

Still figuring out the Gallery thing .3.a If you know anyone who made a gallery in renpy, It be most appreciated .3.b 

(+3)

The creator of Human Cargo, Rob Colton (his game can be found on itchio), has a fully functioning gallery, with drawings, backgrounds and the music present in the game. His game is on renpy :) hope he can be contacted/help

I want to know how many paths this game has. and each route what to do

basically the wolf with glasses, the two lions, and i think the other two wolves/racoon/werewolf/whatever they are brothers are also a route.

(+7)

Rask my beloved

(+1)

(+5)

CAN WE PLEASE GET AN UPDATE ON RASK!!! I miss my dumb rich timid boyo >///<

(+2)

There is already a John route, but it's not complete and pretty short. Still waiting for the continuation QwQ
