Demo Available on itch.io now!

During the summer before his final year of undergrad, Damon moves away from campus with his roommate Jace. The town of Seaside is a popular tourist destination, and Jace’s hometown. Damon plans to work part-time and enjoy his first “real” summer, finally free of claustrophobic student-housing.


After Damon’s parents find out that he’s going through with the move, they cut off all financial assistance. His job search suddenly becomes about more than extra cash. Despite their demands to stay on campus and study during the summer, Damon craves freedom. Rent isn’t cheap in a beachfront cottage, and he needs to find a job quickly. With Jace’s help, Damon narrows down his options to three local spots…


In Tidal Blossoms, you take control of Damon’s choices. Spend your summer working at a bookstore, café, or surf shop! Get to know your co-worker, become good friends, and enjoy your summer vacation together as you grow closer.

The Cast

Mia

Mia is a natural athlete. As a passionate surfer, diver, and volleyball player, people find it hard to keep up with her constant energy. Despite her love for sports and bubbly personality, Mia strays away from the crowd. Labeled as stubborn and lacking in teamwork during high school, she dedicated herself to finding balance in life through meditation. She found peace in the solitude of nature and practices yoga daily. Still, she has difficulty containing her inner fire and often lacks a filter. Mia is constantly in motion.

Ivy


For three generations, Ivy’s family has run the local bookstore “Seaside Tales”. Charming and sweet at work, Ivy knows retail well. As an avid reader and gardener, she spends her free time nurturing plants and researching their cultivation in her extensive library. Although addiction isn’t her best trait, it’s a noticeable one. If Ivy goes without her three daily coffees, she’s a zombie until she recaffeinates. Ivy is a night owl and often gets bored throughout the evening. She collects puzzles and card games to keep busy. Lately, locals have seen a change in Ivy. Suddenly short-tempered and quiet at work, she has drove away more than one customer.

Alice


A newcomer to Seaside, not many people have gotten to know Alice in the year since her arrival. She works as a barista at the local coffee shop and loves chai lattes. Although her warm smile and “How can I help you?” charms customers and earns her tips, Alice’s eyes seem faraway. Outside of work, locals would describe her as hard to read, quiet, and aloof. However, Alice does not lack confidence. She’s been known to have a strong sense of leadership in the workplace, and earned herself a spot as a manager at Josie’s.

Hi! I've played a bit of the demo (not completed it), and I have some feedback and suggestions: 

1. Where in the world is this story set? The names are English, but I see kanji on the bedroom wall.
2. Each line of text fades in. IMO fading text should be disabled when text speed is maximum - or there should be some other option to disable this. I set text speed to maximum because I want to be able to read quickly, so this annoys me.
3. There appears to be no way to reliably activate the cell phone by keyboard - you need to mouse-click it, as far as I could tell. At least, I could not close that text message with the keyboard.
4. Is the cell phone supposed to stay in the upper left corner forever?

Best regards

I loved the game so far! The choices are perfect and the girls are pretty interesting, I like MC's personality too! Can't wait for the full game release!

Thank you so much :) I really appreciate the feedback! 

I have a few questions to ask will there be any DLC for this game?

Hi there! 

First of all, thanks for dropping in and asking some questions. We are grateful for your interest in the game! :) 

At the moment we are focusing our time and energy towards finishing the game, so although there will absolutely be DLC for Tidal Blossoms, exactly what it entails is to be determined. We have some ideas that are not concrete decisions yet. 

No worries I was wondering if there will be any growth effects with the girls in the game.

Also have you thought about growth effects for this game. Examples of these effects are from Growth Academy and Time Tenshi to show you. I just thought I ask.
