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.

It's "Free!" Is an old anime today, but watching this otome game from the days the anime was just a teaser trailer is the best thing I can do at night, alone, eating pizza and sobbing because yes.

Oh my God! This is the best game I've ever played. I've laughed non stop for all this xD You did a great job here and I'm speechless.

First of all, the story is incredible. Even though we're in 2017, I hope you can complete the game. (I HAVE LOVED IT TOO MUCH -w-)
Second, I was impressed that the names of the characters are other xDDD I laughed a lot with them.
Third, the scenarios are incredible. It looks like a fanfic.
Fourth, the routes I LOVED. (especially the Rhine route).

Keep it up, my friend;)
I upload videos and if you allow me, I could upload the game to my channel. I hope you can finish it, because it's an incredible job.

Good luck.
Sincerely, a great admirer -w-

Okay. The name headings for the quotes and dialogue are obviously from you, not from Mizu's perspective, even though it is "Abs of Steel", "Super Abs", "More Abs", "Hoodie Kid", "Mohawk Teacher", and a misspelling or misinterpretation for the sensei's name. Because it says "Mizu's Mom", and if it were from her, it would obviously say My Mom or just 'Mom'. :P ;)

Mohokuzoku? Mohokozoku-sensei!? Okay, you OBVIOUSLY made up that name because it is a pun on the word Mohawk, NOT because it is a REAL JAPANESE NAME!

What's wrong with your English and grammar? Didn't anyone tell you–as in not told — that you are supposed to use PAST TENSE one time— literally ONCE! That's ALL! And why the F*CK can you spell the letters B, E, T, and A in capitals properly, BUT NOT other abbreviations such as FYI and BTW??? You SICKEN ME! And by the way, make sure you know how to spell a word properly before using it for one of your computer games, like buoys

Literally, I could spit on you right now!!

Judging by the Pimp-kun version of the story by going outside, I should assume that Tsun is a homosexual with a crush on Pimp-kun. Especially with the "There's nothing wrong with this 'sausage-fest' " ? Especially with the term sausage-fest in Pimp's words. Obviously for penises.

Uhm, who the hell is Doctor Oceanstrike and why does he have such a RIDICULOUS NAME such as OCEANSTRIKE? Just a terrorist? Obviously a fictional character. :P ;)
And when Mizu chooses to go outside, why is she so casual and comfortable about talking about her lack of a sexual orientation or romantic orientation??? Especially with PIMP-KUN with a PERSONALITY SHE CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH!?!?!!!!???!!!!

Well, Tsun shouldn't be making fun of Mizu. Or whatever his real name is. I mean, she didn't have choice over her family name being Oygua after all. Sorry, I'm really bad at remembering some Japanese words unless I see them right in front of me! Blush  Futaba Embarrassed Icon

Okay, let me get this STRAIGHT. It takes place in the future after the year 2019 – there are more terrorist attacks and villainy then there have EVER BEEN IN THE PAST! – New York no longer exists because of GIANT KILLER BEES!!! And you really believe we're supposed to comprehend all this? Just one question. What's the EXACT YEAR of what this game takes place in??? 
Okay, a little more. Is it in Japan or America?

Also, why do you resist us from picking Sim Date selections, and say "That option is not available for this BETA" or something like that? Also, what the Hell is a BETA and what does it even stand for???!!!

You're dark, fifthdiemsional. I can't..I can't…You try to figure out what I mean, because I am DONE trying to figure out what YOU mean!!!!!!
