It's the visual novel you didn't even know you needed, based on the first commercial for the anime Free! When I started making this sim, all of our knowledge of the anime came from that thirty-second promo. We didn't know the name of the show or whether it would even become a real anime, so I took the character images from the commercial and I took the guys' names/personalities from the fandom. Know Your Meme has an excellent article on the Swimming Anime, so check that out!

Note that this isn't even close to done. Feedback is appreciated! The current plan is to just keep updating this file as I complete the game, so feel free to check back and see if that has happened. (THIS FEELS LIKE SPAMMING FOR VIEWS AND IT MAKES MY SOUL FEEL DIRTY BUT WHATEVS IT'S HOW I ROLL) I will post updates on my journal, and I will try to update at least once a week sometimes. And if you run into a bug/typo/whatever, just tell me in the comments so I can fix it!

EDIT May 16, 2013: Because late updates are better than on-time updates. You can now go on a walk! It's pretty intense, but I think you're strong enough to handle it.
EDIT May 22, 2013: You can now go on the internet inside the game that you are playing on the internet!! WHAAAAAAAAAAA
EDIT May 29, 2013: You can now tell Pimp about the MYSTERIOUS PHONE MYSTERY. You also learn his lazily-chosen first name. (Is it Clarence? Troy? Daisuke? Cosette? It could potentially be any or none of those!)
EDIT June 14, 2013: Mizu finally gets homework done in one route! Also there's like various mysteries going on. Probably too many mysteries. I like mysteries.
EDIT June 23, 2013: You can now tell Pimp about the MYSTERIOUS PHONE MYSTERY, but like differently than the first time. Also, with a little persistence, you can call the police.
EDIT July 5, 2013: Forget all this phone nonsense, you need to feed your cat! (Phone nonsense tends to follow you wherever you go, though.)
EDIT July 16, 2013: Technically updated yesterday, but there were some bugs I wanted to fix before telling anyone anything. More on the mysterious mystery of Senpai's brother, plus a romantic subplot?
EDIT August 24, 2013: Freaking finally got access to Adobe Flash again. ADOBE WHY DO YOU HATE LOVE AND JOY. Anyways, we are continuing where we left off, with the story of five derps who hide a... something... forgot the word. Birdy? Bardy? Brody? Something.

Robot Unicorn Attack

Upon loading up the game and probably startling Google Chrome itself with the absurdness of what I was playing, the word disappointment temporarily fell out of my vocabulary because after even 30 seconds of playing my head was filled with rainbows, amazement, and awe at how simultaneously simple and entertaining the experience was. Aside from the frightening array of colours that would distress even the hardiest of retinas, everything about this game is unbelievably simple and easy to grasp. Taking the fact that you are a mechanical unicorn as given, you are thrown into a bubblegum world of fantasy and sparkle which, upon witnessing it with your own eyes, will make you understand what those Skittles talk about when they bang on about "tasting the rainbow". As a robot unicorn, your job is to simply run endlessly across terrain, jumping intermittently when the ground beneath you ends and landing on the next platform. The jumps become increasingly difficult as you progress, with terrain and giant star-shaped obstacles getting in your way.
