Hi, I played this today and loved it. Very reminiscent of Hatoful Boyfriend, one of my favourite games :) Very well done!
Head Over Hooves: My Heart Bleats For You
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
An adorable apocalyptic dating sim! God has chosen you to save Earth from a fiery end, and your only hope for salvation is finding a sacrifice. The only problem: the sacrifice must be in love with you. You must seduce Goat: a budding writer who is also a goat. Will you and your relationship survive the end of the world?
This game has five endings, can you find them all?
Hint: The minigames do matter! Your performance in them can unlock more dialogue options and other endings. We were too rushed to add a proper tutorial, but it's a simple "right choice, right place" game similar to the board game "Mastermind". You must perform the correct choices in the correct order to get maximum points. There CAN be duplicate choices though!

Thank you! And enjoy!
The "FIXED_POST" version is the updated version that fixes some of the game breaking bugs (depending on your playthrough). It was made after the Jam time was over, so if you want the original (possibly broken) experience play the non "FIXED_POST" game.

I loved it. So well written. I love short VN experiences and this one might be one of my favorites.
Interestintg! The one thing that confused me, was that the Mastermind game round results were shown in columns from right to left, rather than from left to right, which tricked me for a while.
I'm 11 and I'm about to play this out of boredom and because it said "apocalyptic dating sim" and I was confused on how those 2 go together.
